Why Are We Here? {Inspirational Quote}


Spiritual Self

Each of us is here to discover our true Self…

that essentially we are spiritual beings
who have taken manifestation in physical form…

that we‘re not human beings that have occasional spiritual experiences…

that we’re spiritual beings that have occasional human experiences.

~ Deepak Chopra ~

with love Zeenat

  1. We are passengers here,very truth.

  2. Hi Zeenat, this is a beautiful quote. Deepak Chopra and everything he teaches resonates with me so well, I read his books all the time.

    Thank you for sharing!



    • Hi Lana, Me too 🙂 I love his writings, his books everything. I think there is a lot of deep wisdom and practicality in them.
      Glad you liked the quote as much as i did 🙂

  3. Very beautiful and so true.

  4. Zeenat,
    This is something that I feel very much right now in my life. And reading this quote is really a reminder that this is the right path…

  5. While not very long ago I would have agreed with this quote I now believe we are here to make a very important decision. Will we surrender our insistence on selfishness and ego to be part of what most would call heaven for eternity or not? Time is short.

    Imagine that you wanted to build a perfect community of mutual love and support. You know from experience that one selfish person is enough to destroy the peace of that community so you make the decision that only those who are totally giving will be invited in. Would our Creator do any less?

    • Hi Grow Map,
      we are all here to learn. Everyday is a learning experience. We all have aright to question and discover, and we all have our rights to our own opinions. Whatever makes us comfortable with our existence is usually the right path…
      Thank you for your insightful comment 🙂

  7. I heard this once, somewhere… and I’ve never forgotten it. This whole human experience is just a tiny part of who we are, of what we have always been and always will be.

    Thank you for reminding me of this today.

    • HI Lisis, I know what you mean…this quote has that stick with you kind of feel. It somehow opens our heart and mind to such wonderful possibilities.

  10. Great quote! Deepak Chopra is one of my favorite philosophers of our time. Thanks for sharing this!

    • Hi Lena,
      Welcome to my humble blog. Its nice to know that you love Deepak Chopras work as much as I do. Glad you liked it. And thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. Hope to see you here again 🙂

  11. Hi Zeenat,

    A beautiful quote and I totally agree with every part of it. Teilhard de Chardin said “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”

    This quote from Deepak Chopra reminds me of that. We truly are spiritual beings and how I wish more and more people would wake up to that truth. Thank you so much for sharing this quote with all of us. 🙂

    • Hi Nadia,
      I read the Teilhard De Chardin quote only recently. But, its so similar. Both have such deep meanings rooted in them..I just love how this quote makes the spirit fly….such endless possibilities….
      I so glad you liked it. The more people who truly understand what this quote means, the better.
      Thank you for your lovely comment 🙂

  12. This is a great post to remind us what we should focus on other people when we are around them.

    Too many people focus on the superficial side of things these days, but I can’t blame them, with the mass media and magazine industry’s influence, who can actually easily escape their traps?

    This quote makes us believe that there is something much deeper than our human surface, and that we are all essentially the same.

    Very inspirational and true 🙂

    Thank you for providing this post Zeenat.

    • Hi Steven,
      What a lovely comment. It is so true, in today’s day an age.with media bombarding us and telling us with whats beautiful and whats not..its very important that we all try to look within and know that those material superficialities dont matter as much as what on the inside.
      Am glad you liked the quote.
      Thank you fro your thoughtful comment 🙂

  14. Great quotation. People have so much angst about finding their purpose in life, when the purpose of life is the joy of experience. Thanks Zeenat!

    • HI Kaushik,
      Rightly said!! Our purpose and all that we seek is right here inside us..and we are go all over the place looking for it.
      Thank you for your perfect thought 🙂 Am glad you liked this quote.

  15. I think this very well points out our true purpose. To discover our true spiritual self. 🙂

    • Hi Walter,
      We are all spiritual beings…..and that is our sole purpose to find ourselves….cause in finding ourselves we will have found all that we are looking for. Thank you for your lovely comment 🙂

  16. Hi Zeenat!

    I LOVE this quote! In time, I will discover my true self!
