Going Beyond the Human Mind to Discover Your Infinite Potential – Deepak Chopra – #683
By: Dave Asprey
This episode of Bulletproof Radio is a special in-person podcast at the Milken Global Conference in Abu Dhabi with Deepak Chopra.
Deepak Chopra, M.D., FACP, is a world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and personal transformation. TIME magazine described him as “one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century.” He’s been exploring the intersection of science and spirituality for decades.
Immersed in the study and practice of meditation, Ayurveda and mind-body-soul connection, his teachings have greatly influenced our modern understanding of the self. His long scholarship and research of human consciousness has furthered our understanding of what’s real and what’s possible.
“In terms of human potential, metareality isn’t outer space but the pure, unbounded consciousness that lies at the source of the mind,” he says in our interview.
“Consciousness is the knowing element in every experience, whether it’s perception, or mental, or emotional, or imagination,” Deepak continues. “Any sensation, any perception, any feeling, any thought is constantly bubbling out of consciousness. And we have constructed a physical universe out of it, which is brilliant, actually, because, in a way, humans are representing the infinite as this experience.”
We discuss what it means to be “beyond human” based on Deepak’s 90th book: Metahuman: Unleashing Your Infinite Potential. You’ll learn how to question reality, move past limitations constructed by your mind, and enter a new state of awareness. And when you realize a “reality without limits,” you’ll be able to realize your full human potential.
