Consciousness, Chopra says, is the ultimate reality.

Question:  What are the recurring themes in your work?

 

Deepak Chopra: The themes that run through all my work are that consciousness is the ultimate reality; and that by understanding consciousness, you understand everything about yourself, perception, creativity, behavior, relationships. So by understanding consciousness, you have the ability to create anything in your world. And you have the ability to influence also the collective consciousness to not only bring about personal healing, but social transformation; and ultimately healing our planet, which happens to be extremely wounded. So in the Upanishads which includes the Bhagavad Gita, they say, “Know that one thing by learning which everything else is known.” And that one thing is consciousness.
