Ask Deepak: How to Reach Spiritual Enlightenment

Each week,  Deepak Chopra responds to users’ questions with enlightening advice to help them live their best lives.

Q: Is it man’s purpose to seek and reach enlightenment? What are the obstacles to reaching enlightenment, and how does one overcome these obstacles? I preach positive thinking to all that are around me, yet sometimes I find myself feeling hopeless and can’t get out of the rut. Please help. Thank you.
