I actually quite liked these, they were thoughtful and pretty deep. I'm usually not very into Chopra, but he has a nice voice and a good approach. If you feel like a guided meditation this is pretty good, or for falling to sleep to.

I really like the videos you share, Kerome. I remember the ones about Tibetan Buddhism. This affirmations by Deepak Chopra is also very soothing and I find a little challenging.

You are right, these affirmations make you think a little, which is one reason I like them more than some of the others. There are a few affirmation specialists on YouTube, it seems to be a popular area.

Deepak Chopra was on public television the other night. We have one of his books, How to Know God. I think he is deeper than he lets on. He keeps things on a level for everyone to understand.

I think it was in chapter three of the book that he said all the dolphins have the same soul; it's a group soul But the same could be said of humans. I quit reading the book after that comment.

The problem that i personally have with Deepak, same as with Eckhart Tolle, Osho, Neale Donald Walsch, & many others, is that a large part of what they do is about the accumulation of wealth / temporal power & influence, & i don't know for what purpose? i think it's obscene in the context of what is going on in the World & all the inequality & social issues. How is it spiritual? Where is the genuine philanthropy & service to the race / creation? Where is the desire & work to address the social issues / inequalities of the day?

A lot of modern spirituality has been / is about money / wealth / material comforts & success. You get the same thing within all the self help / self development areas - from 'think & grow rich' / 'the master key system' / 'the secret' & a lot else.

i also don't think that any of these teachers / systems are the full deal & that none of them are fully self realised. None of them have / are saying anything that is new or that can't be studied within the traditional literature.

If there is any truth in all the prophecy of 'The Shift of Ages' - then the time of organised religions, doctrines, dogmas, priests, Gurus, & Hierarchies is well & truly over. Within that context i think that a lot of what goes on & the people involved are the remnants of a dying age & system. i don't want what they are all selling. They're Not my Masters.

i've also 'heard it all' - Currently i choose to Not follow anyone or anything other than my own path, truth, Being, intuition, knowledge & wisdom, & i don't see that as any less valid as anyone / anything else in the Age of mass information / communications.
