Deepak Chopra says President Donald Trump needs love.
This week on Bold TV Deepak Chopra, author of the New York Times Best Seller “You Are the Universe” and Co-Founder of JIYO joined us for our Bookstr segment. The author talked with our hosts, Carrie Sheffield and Clay Aiken, and Bookstr CEO, Sarah Hill to draw on his own personal insight on President Trump and our current media climate.

Deepak said President Trump represents all of us.
“People like our current president need empathy, love and actually he is a real teacher because he represents what psychologists call our ‘shadow self,’ the part that we are all embarrassed about,” Deepak said.
A core message expressed by Deepak is the necessity to communicate messages to mass amounts of people. He said we need to be bold and reach people on a massive scale, “through social media, through social networks, through education.”
Deepak continued that the kind of media that Clay identified as being “vitriolic” in past years, is becoming a “dinosaur.” On the other hand, Deepak is encouraging the kind of media that isn’t polarizing, but rather is intended for us to collectively create a world that is “sustainable and peaceful.” Furthermore, he said the worst thing done by the liberal media was to call Trump supporters ‘deplorables’. This sort of label sparked outrage in a particular group that felt marginalized.
Clay asked, “what do we need to do in our lives to make sure we are not growing more and more polarized?” Everyday, Chopra says, as a collective consciousness, we must ask ourselves: Who are we? What do we want? What do we do on a daily basis “to manifest the dreams we have for ourselves, for our families, our communities?”
And what do we do when these visions collide? “Don’t say ‘I’, say ‘we’. What do ‘we’ want?” Deepak said.
