According to Deepak Chopra, the secret to a happy life is…to recognize that no matter what the situation is, there is a creative opportunity in it. It is also finding meaning and purpose in your life to make a contribution and ultimately the secret is to make other people happy.
The purpose of life is a progressive expansion of happiness and the ability to love and have compassion, the ability to touch and be in touch with the creative source inside of you, the ability to fulfill worthy goals and to follow the evolutionary impulse of the universe.
We are the consciousness that makes the universe manifest.
The only way you can die in peace is when you are in touch with that place which is always at peace. The peace that surpases understanding.
NOTE: These words from Oprah’s interview with Deepak Chopra in India truly resonated with me.
