Think your meditation doesn’t have real consequences?

Think again, and then label that thought thinking and come back to the breath:


He wrote to his Twitter followers (who I like to call “Twits” because anyone following Deepak has to be one): “Had a powerful meditation just now — caused an earthquake in Southern California.”

Later, he added: “Was meditating on Shiva mantra & earth began to shake.”

“Sorry about that.”

    so weird- on a friday night-sunday I felt super worked up- like something was going to burst, and then wednesday i was like, 'huh did anything ever happen?' and realized that yes, indeed something did burst. The Chile earthquake saturday and then the Taiwan earthquake sunday. Damn, did I do that?! 😉 Maybe, maybe not~ but I did tap into the energy of it before it happened.

    I don't know what to make of this post. I know Chopra is kidding. But are you? And what's the joke?

    Help me, I'm baffled.

    I'm sure Cal Tech must have done a top secret study to determine if there is a correlation between Chopra meditating and earthquakes. Waylon has his sources.
