Dear Chopra Center Family,
In the amazing and mysterious ways of the universe, earlier this week, I was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.
As of this time, my only symptoms are some visual changes. I am very grateful that I have identified compassionate and competent
physicians dedicated to supporting my maximum recovery. To that end, I am undergoing surgery today.
I want you to know that although I am feeling some sadness, my overwhelming sense is one of tremendous gratitude, appreciation, peace, and love. My life has been so full and rich, and the love that I am surrounded with permeates every aspect of my body, mind, and soul.
If things go according to plan, it is my expectation that within a few weeks, I will return to support the Chopra Center’s mission of healing and transformation. We have created a magnificent team, which is fully capable of continuing the beautiful and important work of the Chopra Center.
If you wish to lend your support, which I would greatly appreciate, here’s what you can do:
1. Keep my family and me in your prayers. Knowing that the collective plays a vital role in shaping reality, I sincerely welcome your loving thoughts and good intentions.
2. The Chopra Center team has set up a website www.lovefordavid.com where you can post your prayers and good wishes, share stories if I have touched your life positively, and send jokes and funny story’s for I truly believe that laughter is the best medicine. I plan to visit this site on a daily basis for your precious inspiration.
3. Tell the people in your life that you love them now. Life is so delicate and precious. Take advantage of this opportunity to express your love and gratitude to all those who will listen.
I want you to know that however things unfold, I am filled with love and bliss for this opportunity to have a human incarnation.
Updates will be posted as we receive them. This is a delicate and wonderful time, so let’s come together as a community to support each other. I will leave you with the words of my beloved Hafiz:
“When all your desires are distilled
You will cast just two votes:
To love more.
And be happy.”
We’ll get through this together . . .
