Spiritual Solutions - Finding the Right Path

Category:  Spiritual Solutions

Addison is nineteen years old and isn't sure what he should do with his life. He hasn't narrowed down his next steps. How do you find the right path, he asks? Deepak poses this question to Addison: If you had all the money in the world, what would you do to find fulfillment and express yourself? When you ask the right questions, life will move you in the right directions.

  • I would like to hypothesize that there is no such thing as the right or wrong path. These labels are entangled in ego and comparison. Right versus wrong is also very closely tied to dogma and social expectation. Who's expectation are you comparing your journey to? There is simply the path you follow and no 2 paths were intended to be the same. Besides, lessons can be learned anywhere, in corporeality, because no matter where you go....'there' you will be. Who is to say who is more enlightened or correct, anyway? Is it the lawyer or the vagrant? The doctor or the street merchant? The child or the parent? I would dare not say. I cannot see sovereignly over the path of any other. I am not God-like in that sense...even though it is true that our choices do influence the environment and the world we experience. We have lived many timelines and each of us planned to take on certain 'themes' in our current incarnation. We play roles whilst on earth as a human being. We interact with a planet housed by 7 billion mortals, plus animals, beasts, plant life and the inanimate. In a world filled with duality someone plays the villain to the hero, if you need to label roles this way. Thinking of the most infamous story...without Judas there would have been no risen savoir in Jesus. ( This is a prime example of the roles we play... whether or not you follow Christianity) Perhaps, like "Pinning the tale on the donkey" you might be surprised when you pull your blindfold off at the end of this go around. Did you hit or miss YOUR mark? There is only compassion for the journey, even in that final discovery. Each person must decide for themselves how to live their life. The only thing I would advise is to live with respect for the journey. YOUR answers, as always, are found in your heart.

  • All roads lead to Rome.... This was a quote I heard a lot at that same age.... Follow your heart, it will lead you through the path that walks itself. Follow your Soul. For that you will have to spent lots of time to be alone (meditation) to discover that you are all One... :)

  • Hello!! Thank you very much for your advices in the video, because it is true that many of us do not aks ourselves these questions and probably waste our time without doing what we can do the best if we had all the prosperity. This 5 minute time to think about is essential and do us good... Thanks again for your sharing your knowledges!

  • well, it has to be more than just either bow or bow out. buddha himself it is said did not expect slavish acceptance of everything he said. there is a middle way. deepak himself must allow for that, surely.

  • I asked myself the same question (If I had a million dollars what would I do?) as I sold my home years ago to go to B.C.. I would still have gone, just maybe wouldn't sell. And you have to know what job you do to pay bills, and what you do (perhaps on your own time) because you want and need to do it in your soul.

  • Isn`t the progress of life a changing force of passions and desires? Initially, as you are young, writing down your life`s goals your abilities and ambitions might help you get into the stream of things, but as I get older I find those too can change and we are faced with the never ending goal and task of re-defining ourselves and asking: who am I now? Going with the flow of your consciousness and passion in your heart, if you can know it, will bring you much happiness.

  • Impressive? Well said? You people are either desperately seeking some sort of guidance or validation; or are just plain gullible. Instead of fantasy or wishful thinking for a better way, why not try reality. You will find that the magic of reality is quite sufficient with no need for fairy tales! Try it. It may blow your mind!! Reality is awesome:

  • Could you do a video on what you think about reincarnation? Im asking this due to the new finding from the University of Cambridge which states that Genes could retain `memory` when passed to offspring, its now actually published in the The the journal Science.

  • Half my Life I was looking for the right Path. Wasn't aware of: I myself was already going through it: sadness, pain, disappointments & joy at the same time. To know the right Path is stepping aside your Ego that will try to confuse you during your Journey

  • We are in the age of highly innovative, creative and globalized world where you can update your conscious awareness at rapid rate. This planet has given birth to greatest achievers, gurus, expert professional and successors so it’s the best golden opportunity to feed your conscious awareness and update your belief system to identify your true hidden greatness, interest and passion. Sometime it happens in life where you feel yourself in web trap and unable to find your true greatness, interest, passion and are compelled to work for living. Actually universe will never rectify actions you take, decision you make and choice you make in life as valid truth says universe is neutral to everyone; there is no favorism in kingdom of universe. Universe has its own rigid law which must be obeyed and applied for landing in life with abundance where your bank account of health, wealth, prosperity and happiness will be beyond your expectation. The best way to identify your inner greatness, true interest and passion is just try to dig as deeper as you can inside yourself and always have a quest in your mind regarding your true greatness, just keep asking yourself being in isolation “WHY LORD HAS SENDED DOWN TO THIS EARTH” ,”WHAT IS MY TRUE PURPOSE IN LIFE”, “KEEP SCANNING INSIDE YOU REGARDING WHAT REALLY INTERESTS YOU AND COMES NATURALLY WHILE YOU PERFORM IN DAY TO DAY LIFE”. You have to refer life changing motivating and personal development books and seminar videos scripted by great gurus of this planet which will feed your inner greatness and ignites passion in you which can make you stand at mountainous height of success where you can get noticed in crowd of trillions with your typical true identity and that will be your true purpose as being purposed by lord. Most of the people use to compare with others and start to dream for creating fortune but they remain as average performer entire life having maximum frustration, regret and run after money entire life and finally buried in grave without living true purposed life. The best philosophy of life is, use your creative mind not competitive mind if you want to achieve your huge dream in life. If you use your creative mind then it will help you to tap out your true inner interest, passion and overall inner greatness which can help you to discover your best present and once you have discovered your best present then it will automatically paves solid highway for your best future which can determines your life reality or true identity where you can find yourself as money magnet as well as happiest person of your own created world. Everyone has got hidden greatness inside but the matter of fact is who is the best digger and discoverer of their hidden mines inside them. The bottom line is ,if you want to have explosive professional career in your life then always hear your inner heart calling and just go for it die for it keeping in mind “whatever other says about you needn’t need to be your life’s reality”

  • I`ve been very successful in the industry I once thought was my lifetime goal... 10 year ago. Suddenly, just the thought of being associated with this field irks me. I quit my white collar, executive job last month without any regrets and I KNOW it in my heart that it is over. I`m now ready for something more real, meaningful and that feeds my soul... not just my bank account. It is fun being in this zone of absolute unknowing, with the eagerness of what`s next!! Peace! :)
