approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Deepak's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Deepak Chopra comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Deepak Chopra - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Deepak Chopra" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Deepak a little better. This page describes the disguise Chopra wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Deepak Chopra is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Deepak tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Chopra's way of dealing with problems.
Deepak Chopra may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Chopra's emotional balance and well-being.
Deepak Chopra is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Deepak Chopra probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Chopra's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Chopra, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Chopra's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Chopra will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Deepak Chopra overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Chopra's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Deepak through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Chopra's more rational friends. Deepak Chopra certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Deepak Chopra has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Deepak Chopra to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Deepak Chopra comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes he appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Chopra tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Deepak's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Moreover, Deepak Chopra also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Chopra needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Deepak Chopra is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Deepak radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Others may see Deepak as a cool, reserved and unapproachable person, perhaps as a result of his conservative and stern upbringing. Deepak Chopra may feel that no one understands him and tends to isolate himself from others.
Deepak Chopra tends to lead a very harmonious life and live in peaceful surroundings. His emotions seem to play a big part in his relationships with others and Chopra bases his relationships on inner understanding between people.
