On A Quote (Deepak Chopra)

(This quote came during one panicky situation I had lately during travel - I guess it was a teaching moment).

I an not a big fan of Deepak Chopra. I think, he is just a very smart man who knew how to cash the aura of spirituality and eastern teachings to people in west. There was nothing new in his books for me. And, lately I was told he is selling oils, balms, ointments and healing recipes on his website!

(We have many such hakims and babas on the walls and streets of sub-continent)

Above said, once in a while I enjoy his quotes. Lately, one of his quote is all over the internet after it was mentioned in Ivanka Trump's book. I liked the quote, but it is easy said than easy done.

"In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you".

This quote also reminded me of many great cricket batsmen, who under massive pressure keep their cool in final overs of the match and wins only because of their ability to thrash blow with precision on last ball. There is a reason, cricket is said to be a game of life!

Not a huge of fan Deepak Chopra or cricket ... but I feel this "stillness inside " comes from "contentment " in life ...Which is really hard to achieve...but achievable . Most restless people are the most discontent people too ...that's my observation ~
