Deepak’s 5 Rules to Save Ourselves and Save the World

1. Chaos and instability equals an opportunity for collective change. “Sometimes out of chaos and outrage comes a leap of creativity, or as we know from individuals who go into a crisis mode and reach rock bottom, they sometime suddenly recover because there’s a major shift in their being.  You can’t sink any lower,” says Deepak.

2. Change begins with one person, but is more powerful in groups of like-minded individuals. “Be the shift inside you, then you can communicate the shift and hang out with the people who are kind of resonating at the same frequency.  In the end, things do evolve because that’s the nature of consciousness—it struggles, it experiments, it fails, and it takes creative leaps,” says Deepak.  “I think they manifest individually, one personal resolution of duality at a time. Like a popcorn popper of individuals realizing. The result over time is the advantages to those living in unified field naturally emerges,” says Dylan. 

3.  Working for change with others can lead to a “phase transition.”  ” In actual systems, a phase transition would be say water boiling into steam, or a storm system that suddenly erupts,” explains Deepak. “If there’s a number of people behaving or transitioning into peace and love and compassion and equanimity and joy because consciousness is field, as we just said, unified field, than when it reaches a critical mass, then it affects everything.”

4.  See instability and change as a chance to be creative.  Deepak says to look at the chaos in the world through the lens of “what is the opportunity here for us, personally and individually, but also collectively?”  He says that if our media and leaders started doing that, “there would be creative opportunities that would become very obvious.”

5.  Ask yourself the right questions as you pursue opportunities for change. Ask yourself:  “What is the opportunity?  What are my unique skills at this moment?  What do I really care about?  Who are the people I can connect with and ask for help?  Who are the people I can help with?  How can I nurture the right relationships?  Are they examples of people who have made a difference in this situation?  The more we ask ourselves those questions and we start connecting with other people, then there’s a phenomenon called collective intension, collection creativity that emerges, you know, and it’s a process,” says Deepak.
