Question: What is the measure of a good life?
Deepak Chopra: The measure of a good life, in my opinion, is the progressive realization of one's goals. It’s the ability to have love and compassion. It is the ability to get in touch with the creative source within us. And it’s the ability to participate with others in their evolutionary process as well.
