Although I have read several books by spiritual guru, Deepak Chopra and confess his literary works detailing our cosmic consciousness are on the mark, the diamond studded reading glasses he wears are, in my view, ungodly and gay.
This Elton John of mysticism seemed to lose his train of thought last evening on Larry King. He attempted to explain to an atheist on the panel the difference between the brain and the mind and of course the soul but ended up criticizing western thinking and how we, non-curry eaters, are so ignorant when it comes to understanding the cycle of life.
Fellow Larry King guest and neurosurgeon Sanjay Gupta appeared to support Chopra’s Eastern views on unseen dimensions, reincarnation, the interconnectedness of All, and candles in the wind.
Gupta confessed that from what he had seen on the inside as a brain surgeon, that there is indeed life after death and that somehow, even when there is no blood flowing to the brain, we often think long after we have been pronounced dead.
It was a relief to return to reality and step away from my high-definition Samsun goddess during a commercial break. The sponsor of the show and Deepak’s eyeglasses was the anti-psychotic, mood stabilizing medication Abilify. If I had seen Deepak Chopra before his books, I never would have read him. If only had he described, live on the air, how the spirit of Abilify will save us all, I may have believed that his follower, Michael Jackson, was in heaven.
