Mallika Chopra is the daughter of Deepak Chopra, a famous spirituality speaker. Mallika herself is an entrepreneur and the founder of Intent.com, a website that talks about personal, social and global wellness.
She is also a writer and recently has launched a book called ‘Living with Intent: My Somewhat Messy Journey to Purpose, Peace, and Joy’. This book talks about how lost Mallika started feeling while preaching her own students.
She recalls, “Because of my father, people feel like my brother and I are experts in all this stuff. They think we meditate regularly, that we are vegan and that we live in this different plane. It couldn’t be further from the truth.”
Even while she was pregnant, she couldn’t feel the joy anymore, “Suddenly all of the joy and excitement and magic of being pregnant became really stressful. What am I doing bringing a soul into this planet that is so full of pain and suffering and hatred?”
That’s when she reminded herself the 3 most important questions of life:
Who am I?
What do I want?
How can I serve?
The answers she found were:
“Because if I know who I am, then I can teach my children.”
“If I’m not living authentically and in a way that I feel I’m serving, then that’s not my path. I don’t want it.”
“It’s the everyday people who are doing extraordinary things who raise the frequency of our planet.”
Dear Jaipur women, do you find these questions helpful? Mallika, just like you, undergoes daily obstacles and she seems to have found the solution. She says:
“When I am with my children, it’s not complicated. It’s sitting quietly for five minutes and then we ask ourselves those questions: ‘Who am I? What do I want? And how can I serve?’ I have stayed true to my meditation practice. It gives me the grounding I need every day. I have also found acceptance. Not a resigned acceptance, but a joyful acceptance of the role I’m playing right now with my children. It is a time of a lot of magic and joy.”
