Guilt, Sin and God

posted by dchopra

Question:
I love people and I have a recently discovered a problem I have with feeling that I am not worthy/ lovable if not doing and saying everything I can to make people respond positively and feel good. I am worried about not being lovable to others (cla*sic ‘people pleaser’) but fundamentally about not good enough to God and being judged for not doing absolutely everything I could. The words said in church growing up regarding asking for forgiveness of sins “in what I have done and in what I have failed to do” have always haunted me.

Seeing Ourself In Others

Question:
I have a question to the following quote from your recent answer to a question about creation: ”The seed of ignorance is implied in the virtual duality created in consciousness knowing itself as both knower and the object of knowing. In that imaginary separation there is the potential of intelligence mistaking what it sees as something other than an expression of itself.“

Tibet Isn’t a Buddhist Litmus Test

posted by dchopra

As the violence in Tibet has continued, the Dalai Lama issued a stern statement that he could not align himself with insurrection in his home country. Buddhism rests on several pillars, one of which is nonviolence. Tibet quickly became a kind of Buddhist litmus test. How much pain and oppression can you stand and still exhibit loving kindness and compassion? I wonder if that’s really fair. The Tibetans face a political crisis that should be met with political action. Whatever that action turns out to be, nobody should be seen as a good or bad Buddhist, anymore than defending your house from an intruder tests whether a Christian is living by the precepts of Jesus.

By Deepak Chopra, MD and Henry Stapp, PhD The time is ripe for a theory of cosmic mind to be seen by all scientists, not as a speculative notion that conflicts with basic scientific principles, but as a necessary part of a rational science-based understanding of ourselves and nature. The earlie

By Deepak Chopra, MD and Henry Stapp, PhD Pick at random any TV show about the universe, and the visuals will be dominated by a black void sprinkled with billions of galaxies. Such images give the impression of a vast emptiness foreign to human existence. Our bodies would perish within minutes

Skepticism and a Million Dollar Challenge (Part 2)
When I made a video offering a million dollars to anyone who could explain how the brain produces the appearance of the three-dimensional world, I didn't have a publicity stunt in mind. I wanted to draw attention to consciousness research, which has been burgeoning. The public isn’t aware of how b

Getting Zombies Excited (It Takes a Million-Dollar Challenge)
In science, problems get solved faster when the pot begins to boil. Dormant questions need motivation, which is why I posed a million-dollar challenge to anyone in the materialist camp who could demonstrate how matter turns into mind. (Please see the two preceding posts, which set up this provocativ

Skepticism and a Million Dollar Challenge
When public perception is skewed and distorted, it's important to push back. I've found myself doing this in the arena of skepticism. Without a doubt we live in a skeptical age, and it affects everyone. To doubt is a tool for finding truth, but like every positive value, there are pitfalls. Skeptici
