Deepak Chopra on Oprah’s Lifeclass

I have just watched Deepak Chopra and Oprah in Oprah’s Lifeclass on OWN. As someone not from the U. S., I became more aware of her work through this event (also see here) with Eckhart Tolle.

She does a good job. [Incidentally, by the way, she also addresses the relationship between religion and spirituality I discussed in my previous post. Her stance of distinguishim them may be understandable especially in a country like America, where there are some quite fundamental people who might otherwise object to some of the important insights.]

Deepak Chopra gives some valuable advice during the broadcast – have a look!


On the Terms “Religion” and “Spirituality”

Today, I read Eckhart Tolle’s explanations as to “religious versus secular spirituality” (which has also been recorded on ETV a few months back).

I was tempted to write a comment there, but not ultimately sure about my motive, (and) whether it was not more the mind, and given the possibility I should not sit in front of my computer this morning anyway, I probably better post it here. My comment is:

When reading the comments, it occurs to me that one might wish to be careful not to build an artificial contradiction between “religion” and “spirituality”. (For then, the ego has an opponent to strengthen itself in fighting.)
