The universe has no fixed agenda


An excerpt from the writings of Deepak Chopra (born October 22, 1946).

If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.

The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.

If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign – body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on – alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction.

Deepak Chopra is an Indian-American author and advocate of alternative medicine. A prominent figure in the New Age movement. His books and videos have made him one of the best-known and wealthiest figures in alternative medicine. To date, Chopra has written over 91 books, 21 of them New York Times bestsellers, which have been translated into 43 languages.

Chopra has written that his thinking has been inspired by Jiddu Krishnamurti. He speaks and writes regularly about metaphysics, including the study of consciousness and Vedanta philosophy. He is a philosophical idealist, arguing for the primacy of consciousness over matter and for teleology and intelligence in nature – that mind, or “dynamically active consciousness”, is a fundamental feature of the universe.
