Deepak Chopra, the founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, is a world-renowned authority in the field of mind-body healing, a best-selling author of more than fifty-five books published in more than eighty-five languages, and an international presenter on medical and environmental issues. In his book The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire, he writes:
“If each of us could aspire to express the expanded self, and if we could share the
knowledge and experience of our expanded selves with one another, perhaps we
could create an environment based on respect for life, and achieve a restoration of balance in the oceans, the forests and the wilderness. This transformed environment would in turn, result in the simultaneous co-arising of events that would lead to a completely new world. On this ideal planet we would find peace of mind, a sense of the sacred, economic partnerships and prosperity, efficient and clean energy industries, a scientific understanding of the new reality, a flourishing of the arts and philosophy, and a true awareness of our inseparability. In such a society we would see clearly that love is the ultimate force at the heart of the universe.”
