Do our beliefs at all affect the way the world really is, or are they merely projections of our minds? In this episode of “Ask Deepak” on The Chopra Well, Deepak discusses the relationship between belief and reality.
Beliefs are ideas that we hold to be true. They shape our perceptions, attitudes, moods, and how we perceive our reality. Reality is filtered to our consciousness through these beliefs, which in most cases are limiting but have the opportunity to be empowering. Beliefs limit us by defining who we are and what we hold dear. But true empowerment comes from pushing beyond beliefs.
Beyond beliefs, what is left to define us and shape reality? Perhaps we could open out awareness to perceive the world as it is in that instant before we begin assigning meanings and labels. What do you think?
Genes are units of heredity that code for every protein that occur in our body and are transferred from one generation to another. Are genes deterministic? Is it possible to “turn on” genes that are good for you and turn off the genes that not?
In this episode of “Ask Deepak” on The Chopra Well, Deepak discusses how good sleep, stress management, good nutrition, exercise, and healthy emotional relationships can have an effect on our genes and how they are expressed. Check it out!
It may seem hard to believe that habits and lifestyle choices can have as much of an effect on our lives as our genes, but the key lies in the triggers that influence how our genes are expressed. Yet more reason to nurture a healthy lifestyle and take care of our bodies and minds!

is amazing how we were highly blessed by our Creator by integrating in our minds and our hearts this great thirst for learning. This learning is carried out on a daily basis.
In my case I was
double blessed because God helped me find great esoteric teachings at
an early age. The more I learn my self-commitment to share it with my
fellow men and women grows more intensely, this quality makes me really
care about what others have to say about dealing with problem solving
Sincere and honest communication has been my motto. I’m
conscious that we aren’t perfect human beings, but it doesn’t deprive us
to seek perfection. I firmly believe that we are on our way to be
reintegration with the UNITY.
This is my daily prayer to our Creator:
"God please illuminate my mind, open my loving heart so it can radiate Infinite love, comprehension, health and compassion. Please allow me to teach with my example and also to learn with my brothers and sisters daily examples. Amen!"
