Every life is a book of secrets, ready to be opened. The secret of perfect love is found there, along with the secrets of healing, compassion, faith, and the most elusive one of all: who we really are. We are still mysteries to ourselves, despite the proximity of these answers, and what we most long to know remains lodged deep inside.
We all want to know how to find a soul mate, what career would be most fulfilling, how to live a life with meaning, and how to teach our children well. We are looking for a personal breakthrough, a turning point, a revelation that brings with it new meaning. The Book of Secrets--a crystalline distillation of insights and wisdom accumulated over the lifetime of one of the great spiritual thinkers of our time--provides an exquisite new tool for achieving just that.
Because answers to the questions at the center of life are counterintuitive, they are often hidden from view, sequestered from our everyday gaze. In his ongoing quest to elevate our experience, bestselling author Deepak Chopra has isolated fifteen secrets that drive the narrative of this inspiring book--and of our lives. From "The World Is in You" and "What You Seek, You Already Are" to "Evil Is Not Your Enemy" and "You Are Truly Free When You Are Not a Person," The Book of Secrets is rich with insights, a priceless treasure that can transport us beyond change to transformation, and from there to a sacred place where we can savor the nectar of enlightenment.
"The Book of Secrets is the finest and most profound of Deepak Chopra’s books to date. Want the answers to the secrets of life? Let me recommend that you start right here." -- Ken Wilber, author of A Brief History of Everything
From the Hardcover edition.
In his revealing and readable BOOK OF SECRETS, preeminent personal-growth authority Deepak Chopra continues the chronicles and translations of the mysteries of humanity's hunger for spiritual fulfillment he has previously undertaken in classic works like AGELESS BODY, TIMELESS MIND and THE SPONTANEOUS FULFILLMENT OF DESIRE. Chopra cites the dissatisfactions of material achievements, providing many remarkable insights into ways of breaking out of ineffective thought and behavior patterns. He expands insightful meditations on the causes and cures of suffering into exercises for the removal of anger and stress, proposing that "evil is born in the gap between body and mind," and offers simple methods for either conquering or dispersing negative thoughts and emotions. SECRETS carries Chopra's patented mix of Eastern and Western philosophy and religious theory, with often opaque pronouncements ("You are dying at every moment so that you can keep creating yourself") that may confuse the casual reader; however, his gradually unfolding depiction of humankind's unity with the universe is a tale that will greatly reward the effort of close study.
