Our Dramatic Choice: Prosperity or Annihilation | The Rabbit Hole

Category:  The Rabbit Hole

Deepak Chopra discusses how our abuse of the planet and the consequential climate change may cause the end of the world as we know it. Is there a way to reverse the damage or has our society already condemned human evolution to move backwards?

  • i love your insights and series, except the title `rabbit hole` seems awkward somehow Thank you for all your work, please can we all create a spirit well-being television network? the medium of tv really needs this, it is a missing channel --spirit/psychology/raising consciousness to higher level, particularly for the younger generation sake

  • After watching this video, click on "next episode" and you will find out that Deepak tells you that there is no real view looking at the world, there are only different pictures and different points of view............ Sooo what does that mean? Every point of view is valid and every One lives in a world that is valid to oneself, so why not create a most wonderful world in which YOU feels happy and alife? The only thing GOD will do is smile :)

  • Hello Deepak if we are truly in the iron age ( dark age) and know that as true as the seasons come and go that this cycle repeats itself every 500, 000 years how do we cope or deal with this decline when it is an inevitable part of life's cycle. Apparently we are only in the earlier stages of this dark cycle so how do those of us living through it keep our light burning as institutions, structures, Eco systems break down to prepare again for complete dissolution as is required for the Golden age (which will not be seen for many life times). What if any significance does this knowledge have for our day to say lives...

  • Dear Deepak Chopra, your statement confuses us. From what we understand, your teachings have been always that we are the creators of our realities, and we agree. Saying and believing that "the progression of human civilization comes with the destruction of our planet", could create such reality. Progress comes with the evolution of our brain, of science and self awareness. Self awareness, that allows, all of us, to educate and nurture our ego to become higher beings. Technology is a wonderful tool for spreading such progress, and powerful people, such yourself, can concentrate their mental and wise resources to educate humanity. Goddesses are here with you. May Love and Peace be with you, always <3 <3

  • Social media is not the problem, what matters is intent, how we use it, it applies for absolutely everything. My fav example: with a fork, you can feed the hungry ones, or you can kill. The choice is ours. One thing we should stop using, is EGO. ;) Ego and everything built on it must fall, for something new that comes from within to rise. Everything is according to the divine plan, beyond the mind's understanding.

  • If everything is constant and never ends, as you have stated before- how can the world end how can humans end? Since it is not literal and tangible but only through our perceptions?

  • Example of something that is already coming is chips implanted into the skin, which is like a VISA card and identification. Now someone can know where you are at anytime, and what you like to spend ur money on. Physical money will soon vanish, to make room for more control of humanity.

  • My guess for the future. is that some will be able to create a system that gather information on everyone in society, without breaking the privacy (like a machine). It will protect humans, it will force higher understandings as a way for us to survive. Everything you say, think, location, likes/dislikes, friends,family etc will be monitored with this "machine/system". Only when something does not meet a certain quality that sets society in danger, will the information be available to the"police"

  • We live in an incubator. If we look over to Mars you will discover that this planets CORE has cooled and can not incubate life anymore.....this is a natural process. The same will eventually happen to our own world, It can not last forever. That freaks a lot of people out.....the fear of death. Inevitably we will be our own annihilation. You only have to look at life around us.To much of a good thing eventually is unsustainable. Plaques of locusts....plaques of mice. A virus that will kill it's host. These are all mirrors of what eventually is to come. We value life so much that our population will increase to unsustainable levels. Go figure!

Who here uses NO plastic bags and wraps their garbage w a string and newspaper like the olden days? who only walks,bikes to commute

  • education will break the barriers of inequality. some many people are not factored in the equation, and are ignorant to the damages that they contribute to the planet.aside from big oil companies,fracking which is a disgrace that it even exists!! Part of the problem is not being aware of what is happening elsewhere. People who seriously care about the less fortunate (who are greater in number) are few. Most ppl charge more $ for something which all should have access too> learning, healing. hint

  • Your True Nature is Unlimited Happiness, Limitless Love, Unending Bliss, and The Profoundest Peace. Your True Nature is Life. Life is the most Beauty-Full Wonder, Bliss, and Happiness when you Realize what your True Nature is. Another way of saying True Nature, if this term does not make sense to you, is True Self. Thus, your True Self is Unlimited Happiness, Limitless Love, Unending Bliss, and the Profoundest Peace. When I often Realize this - I feel as if I am going to Explode into and as Infinity Itself. Yet you cannot explode into it because you already Are It and that Is the Realization. You already are: Happy, Love, Bliss-Full, Peace-Full, and Wonder-Full. You just don't realize it because you are identified with the knowledge-games and the false-identity games of society that are un-true. These false-games make you chase after what you think is happiness, so it keeps you distracted and un-aware of your natural-always-already-happy True Self or True Nature. Everyone is born Happy, Loving, Bliss-Full, Profoundly Peace-Full, and Wonder-Full. Babies totally radiate this. Children are so radiant and we love them so much because of this. Gradually, parents throw these bright-ones into the false knowledge-games and false-identity games of society and their light begins to get covered up by layers and layers of society's programming and games. Then, over time and throughout life, the journey of Enlightenment takes place. In other words, the journey of recovering the original radiance or Light that was covered up. Then some people go through years of therapy to remove the garbage of society in hopes of recovering that dim light or original-radiance of happiness. Or some people travel to India to find gurus to help them find that lost Light. Did you know that the origin of the word Guru means 'one who pushes away darkness with light'? That is the job of Enlightened Beings to shine their light of Enlightenment at you, so that you recognize your own Light or your True Self, which was born Enlightened, and is the same Light in them. The light of Life Itself. So, I am posting this Facebook post which now will act as a Signpost to point you in the direction of Realizing your True Nature/or your True Self that you can never lose. You can be un-aware of It, but you can never loose it. You can get lost for half of your life, but you can never, ever, ever loose the truly-true-Truth of Who and What you are (your True Self). My whole purpose behind all of my Facebook posts is to tell you and convey in hundreds of different ways that Life is Already Heaven. You are already Heaven or Perfect-Happiness, Love, Bliss, and Unending Peace Itself. Life is nothing but the greatest thing ever. You are life and life is one, so you are the greatest thing ever along with everything else since it is all life as well. This here, what I am saying, is the message of all those Enlightened and/or Awakened Beings from the beginnings of time. May this post give you a glimpse of your True Self today. Written with Unlimited Happiness, Love, Bliss, and Peace, Your Forever-Friend, Troy of Is. Send a Friend request this way if you can!

  • The earth is groaning under the strain of human exploitation. We are all guilty to some degree. A new earth will emerge but it will be minus a big slice of the human race. The dreams I had as a child are now emerging as a prophetic revelation. I am a christian and the fact that so many extremists are in control of political parties it is only a matter of time before we see more acts of hatred of and vendetta against anyone that has even the remotest more or face and ideology that does not fit.

  • After watching this video, click on "next episode" and you will find out that Deepak tells you that there is no real view looking at the world, there are only different pictures and different points of view............ Sooo what does that mean? Every point of view is valid and every One lives in a world that is valid to oneself, so why not create a most wonderful world in which YOU feels happy and alife? The only thing GOD will do is smile :)
