Maranda Pleasant: What would you say to the world right now? The most urgent truth?
Deepak Chopra: How can I heal myself and heal the collective insanity right now.
MP: Collective Insanity?
DC: Yes. What are the symptoms of collective insanity? War, terrorism, eco destruction, extinction of species, climate change, mechanized debt, contamination of food, destroying our oceans, and our collective psychosis—a soon-be-a terminal patient, and that patient is the human species.
MP: So the biggest question is how do I heal myself?
DC: And heal the world. There is no social transformation in the absence of personal transformation. Personal transformation must be focused on love, compassion, joy, peace, equality, and creativity.
