Why Deepak Chopra Worries Me—The Tension Between Self-Help and Spirituality

  1. Perfectly stated, Doug. The contrast I see, due to being well-rooted in science (I’m a pharmacist) but also practice Vipassana meditation daily and teach at a metaphysical center, is that we as humans tend to want the path of least resistance (quick, easy results) and many times aren’t willing to do the tedious, laborious work of taming the mind, being still and allowing wisdom and peace to rise to the surface. Trying to achieve results is very grasping in nature and it always carries the roots of inherent unhappiness. I applaud your ability to articulate this so well because it is definitely something that needed to be said.
