Deepak Chopra on money and fulfillment: Times of 'adversity' are meant for 'opportunity'

Deepak Chopra, speaking recently to Fox News Digital during the Milken Institute Global Conference in Los Angeles, said that his latest book, "Abundance: The Inner Path to Wealth," was inspired by a lyric allegedly written by Bob Marley.
The lyric, he said, notes that "some people are so poor, all they have is money."
True wealth, said Chopra, a holistic health expert and best-selling author, is hardly about dollars and cents and nothing else.
Ultimately, he said, it's about much deeper and more important issues such as "security and safety … love and belonging."

Living with "abundance" is not just about one's personal or financial situation but extends to "all those with whom you interact," he said.
"Americans are used to spending money that they haven't earned, to buy things that they don't need, to impress people that they don't like," Chopra pointed out.
"That creates a lot of stress. So first of all — stop doing that," he said bluntly.
"Be frugal in these times."
He added, "Secondly, this is a time for opportunities, also."
