Sage or conman?

This entry on The Huffington Post from renowned self-help guru Deepak Chopra seems to be insightful and devoid of BS.

Wild lions

There are only a handful of mountain lions left in the Santa Monica Mountains. Development has encroached on the habitat of these animals leaving them isolated and threatened. Now their existence depends on a tunnel underneath the 101 to the Simi Hills to the North and beyond. If the tunnel can be built in time they may survive.
Deep in the Santa Monica mountains, her exact whereabouts known only to biologists tracking her by GPS, the puma gave birth a year ago to four kittens. Two males and two females, their newborn eyes and ears sealed shut, their tiny bodies making swimming motions against the lapping of their mother's rough tongue. It was a solitary act by a secretive animal in a wilderness her species has roamed for thousands of years.
