Take a comfortable seat and close your eyes. Together, let’s take some long, deep conscious breaths, taking in the love of everyone around us and exhaling that love out into the world. Inhale and exhale, slowly and deeply.

In your mind’s eye, envision the faces of people around the world, on continents far away, in topography that may be new or different for us, in mountain villages, rainforests, high desert regions, and cities we may have only seen in photos.

Bring into your awareness your highest vision of perfect health. See it infusing your own body; you, perfectly healthy, vibrant, and full of joy.

Take that feeling of perfect health that surrounds you and send it along this network of unity, so that everyone feels the nurturing sensations of your vibrant love.

Let’s form our intention that the vitality and joy we have experienced throughout this journey benefit the entire global community.

You are made of love, joy, and powers as mighty as all of creation. You are a radiant spirit, full of light, and worthy of all good things. As we release our day and prepare our bodies to rest and start fresh tomorrow, know that you are loved. You are encouraged to dream big – to let your light shine for all to see.

Each day is a new opportunity to start over, to let go of past mistakes, and to open our arms to new adventures. If you made mistakes today, it’s okay. You can correct them. Don’t be hard on yourself; making missteps is all a part of learning and growing, and tomorrow is a new day. If a test didn’t go well, or if you got into an argument with someone… even if you just felt “off” today, you can gently let it go now.

Each day also brings so many wonderful things to be thankful for – our family and friendships, our home, our warm bed… You probably have many more to add to that list, so let’s stop for a moment and think about three things you are grateful for today. You can say them quietly to yourself.


Forgiveness begins with the recognition that actions perceived as hurtful or wrong are the perception of the ego, not the higher self.

The ego moves us to seek justice or revenge to right a perceived wrong. The higher self, however, knows that the universe will rebalance all actions at the appropriate time, in the appropriate way in accord with the whole cosmos, not just the view of one person’s hurt feelings.

When you forgive, you are allowing that process to unfold instead of holding on to your ego’s point of view. Forgiveness is a courageous act of trust and compassion, one that comes with the bountiful reward of healing, love, light, and liberation for our bodies, minds and spirits.

When we find that we are holding on to pain or resentment connected to a person or situation, we are, in essence, holding onto memories from the past. On this journey we are now choosing to live love in every moment. Love exists, not in the past, but in the present moment.

The beauty of this choice is that as we forgive another we are actually choosing freedom for our own soul. Through forgiveness, we free ourselves from attachments to the past and we clear encumbrances that constrict our heart, helping to expand our ability to love and be loved.

As we embrace the practice of forgiveness, we recognize that this natural process brings us closer to our essential nature and is part of our spiritual evolution.


It is important to remind ourselves that we are already complete, created by universal intelligence, to be a divinely loving, lovable and loved being.

We are the total, complete package. Looking outward for our good is a desire of the ego, which craves validation from outside sources, mainly opinions from others.

Going within, and reconnecting with our Higher Self, reaffirms that validation comes from the inside, the home of pure love and acceptance.

Our sense of wholeness must come from self-referral, which is, using our soul as the reference point instead of seeking approval elsewhere.

Sometimes, in order to find love, we believe we have to have a fit body, perfect skin and fashionable clothes. Chasing what we are told is perfection is an exhausting exercise that takes valuable time and energy – energy that could be spent contemplating and living our magnificence.

The love we are looking for is looking for us – inside of ourselves, in the very core of our being.


Getting to the source of any pain, whether it is physical, mental, or emotional, is how healing begins. Often times, our pain is the result of events from long ago, and the hold these memories have on us keep us stuck in life patterns that are no longer serving us. These past events limit our ability to be fully present and at peace with ourselves. Once we can identify these “wound-producing” stories, we can then reframe them so healing can occur.

Recognizing that our pain comes from an unmet need opens the possibility of how we can consciously get our needs met now.

Shifting our awareness, seeing ourselves with new eyes and listening with new ears, is the secret to all healing.

Our inner silence is our greatest teacher, our greatest tool for healing. In the noise and din of the outside world, it is almost impossible to hear the voice of spirit, of the universe, of our Higher Self saying, “You are loved. You are loved.”


To truly experience pure potentiality it’s important that we spend time in the splendor of nature. By observing nature, we can witness the orchestration of its vibrant elements, the astounding forces of life, and the unity of all things.

So, let’s take a trip into nature together and experience this feeling for ourselves. Close your eyes, and sitting comfortably, just breathe.

See, in your mind’s eye, a lush, verdant forest. It’s very moist under the tree’s’ shady canopy, and you can smell the rich soil

Through meditation, we have a variety of experiences, but one that offers the greatest benefit is that we find ourselves in that place between our thoughts, called “the gap,” pure consciousness. In the gap, we can plant the seeds of our most heartfelt intentions and take from it the stillness of the true Self back out into activity. And, we do all this without effort, simply by closing our eyes and repeating our mantra.

So, today, as we prepare to meditate, let’s set our own personal intentions for perfect health. It can be anything you want, but make it as specific as possible. For instance, if you want to incorporate more exercise into your life, your intention could be, “I intend to walk 20 minutes every day.” Whatever is important to your wellbeing, create that intention and then release it into the womb of creation before you begin your meditation, and watch how it manifests in your life.

New York Times bestselling author Deepak Chopra joins forces with leading physicist Menas Kafatos to explore some of the most important and baffling questions about our place in the world.

What happens when modern science reaches a crucial turning point that challenges everything we know about reality? In this brilliant, timely, and practical work, Chopra and Kafatos tell us that we’ve reached just such a point. In the coming era, the universe will be completely redefined as a “human universe” radically unlike the cold, empty void where human life is barely a speck in the cosmos.

You Are the Universe literally means what it says–each of us is a co-creator of reality extending to the vastest reaches of time and space. This seemingly impossible proposition follows from the current state of science, where outside the public eye, some key mysteries cannot be solved, even though they are the very issues that define reality itself:

What Came Before the Big Bang?
Why Does the Universe Fit Together So Perfectly?
Where Did Time Come From?
What Is the Universe Made Of?
Is the Quantum World Linked to Everyday Life?
Do We Live in a Conscious Universe?
How Did Life First Begin?

“The shift into a new paradigm is happening,” the authors write. “The answers offered in this book are not our invention or eccentric flights of fancy. All of us live in a participatory universe. Once you decide that you want to participate fully with mind, body, and soul, the paradigm shift becomes personal. The reality you inhabit will be yours either to embrace or to change.” What these two great minds offer is a bold, new understanding of who we are and how we can transform the world for the better while reaching our greatest potential.

DEEPAK CHOPRA MD, FACP, founder of The Chopra Foundation and co-founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing and Jiyo, is a world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and personal transformation, and is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism. He is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians, Clinical Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Public Health at the University of California, San Diego, Researcher, Neurology and Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), and a member of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists. The World Post and The Huffington Post global internet survey ranked Chopra #17 influential thinker in the world and #1 in Medicine. Chopra is the author of more than 85 books translated into over 43 languages, including numerous New York Times bestsellers. TIME magazine has described Dr. Chopra as “one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century.”

MENAS KAFATOS is The Fletcher Jones Endowed Professor of Computational Physics at Chapman University, author of more than 320 refereed articles and fifteen books. He received his B.A. in Physics from Cornell University in 1967 and his Ph.D. in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1972. He is the Founding Dean of the Schmid College of Science and Technology at Chapman University, serving as dean in 2009-2012.

With Julia Mossbridge, Donald Hoffman, Edward Frenkel, Anthony Aguirre, Federico Faggin; facilitated by Deepak Chopra.

Five different scientists with varying views of consciousness or mind. This panel will be a conversation between these different views to understand their contributions, and to see how they understand each other, and how they relate to other theories of consciousness. The point is to have a genuine deep dialogue between scientific theories of consciousness, to find commonalities, and the meaning of the differences. We will explore whether scientific theories have a consensus about anything relating to consciousness, like an operating definition of consciousness. This panel will be facilitated with an eye from the nondual view of consciousness, to ask questions and address issues in the study of consciousness that can help in looking deeper into the assumptions and conclusions of each theory.
