“In this New Year, you might want to try meditation. Some of you may have wondered about the benefits, stress reduction, lowering of anxiety, helping you cope more efficiently, be less frustrated, less addicted in your behavior. The most important thing from the beginning is not to turn it into another self-improvement project. Meditation can be useful if you don’t expect too much from it. So let me guide you a little bit into the way I think about it.”

“Our book is about…well the short answer is our book is about meditation. The slightly longer answer is our book is for people who think meditation is not for them or that they could never do it. I had written a previous book called 10% Happier which was all about how I, as a skeptical news man, stumbled upon meditation and how it made a significant difference in my life. I assumed, kind of naively, that when I wrote my book and explained all of my reasons for meditating, including the fact that there’s science that suggests it’s really good for you, I kind of assumed that everyone would start meditating.”

“What inspired me to write MEDITATE WITH ME: A Step-by-Step Mindfulness Journey was I wanted kids to have a way to slow down. I wanted to give kids a beloved book that they could connect to, that they could interact with, practices that were easy for them, a way to feel their breath in their body, a way to slow down when they need it, and a way to really calm themselves…a way to sort of start practicing self-soothing techniques that they’ll really need throughout their entire lives.”

“My book You Were Not Born to Suffer is really about how to love yourself unconditionally and practically. After years of suffering, studying, and searching I discovered logically how most forms of disease and depression were caused by us never learning how to love ourselves and what that actually means.”

“You are the creator of reality.”

For decades, Deepak Chopra has shared his research, learning, and expertise to help us define our world. In his new book, You Are the Universe, Chopra and Menas C. Kafatos, PhD, challenge us to think about our knowledge of how the world came to be and to apply this knowledge to our personal reality. Throughout the book, we explore the mystery behind scientifically founded theories and see how we can impact the reality these theories create. With this understanding, we learn more about who we are and how we influence the world in ways previously thought to be beyond our reach.

Narrated by Kaleo Griffith, this audiobook will help you see your actions and those of all around you in a new light and will encourage you to take control of your own reality. Be sure to enjoy this audiobook before you watch the You Are the Universe PBS special, airing in early March, to get the full impact of Chopra’s message and start making a difference in your life and the world around you.
