Ask Deepak: Get Answers to Your Spiritual Questions, Part 2

Each week, Deepak Chopra responds to users’ questions with enlightening advice to help them live their best lives. This week, Deepak starts by addressing how to stay positive when times are tough:

Q: I have had a tough road bring me to where I am. I have buried most of my family, dealt with domestic violence, have two amazing kids and multiple sclerosis. When will I connect with my center and truly live my desires? Why have there been so many struggles, and when will I feel peace? I give and try to help people and have good thoughts in my head and heart. Why do I feel struggle at times when I try to remain so positive?
