In the groundbreaking tradition of Ageless Body, Timeless Mind, Deepak Chopra sets us on a path to the ultimate spiritual experience.

The bestselling author Deepak Chopra is back with a new work that explores the seven ways we experience God. As Chopra explains, these experiences are shaped not by any one religion but by an instinct that is hard-wired into the brain. In this remarkable work, Chopra takes us step by step, from the first stage, where the brain's "fight or flight" response yields us the experience of a God who is an all-powerful parent, to the seventh stage, where the brain experiences God as pure being, a sacred presence that just is. All seven stages are available to us at all times.

In How to Know God, Chopra charts a fascinating course for us, as we explore mysticism, religious ecstasy, genius, telepathy, multiple personality, and clairvoyance, drawing insights from psychology, neurology and physics as well as from the great religions.

I couldn't get past the first 30 minutes of the first CD

I tried on three different occasions to listen to this book. I couldn't get into it, I didn't feel as though it flowed well and the content wasn't suitable for an audio book in my opinion. To many sections of the book that contained multiple items, "item one" blah blah blah, "item two" blah blah blah, "part a" blah blah blah, "part b" blah blah blah and so on.

Deepak Chopra is one of my favorite authors. He did not disappoint with this one. He points out seven distinct levels of perception of God. We are each at a certain level, and our reality is defined by how we see God. Very enlightening. Thanks, Deepak!

Merging Science and Sprituality

I enjoyed this book immensely. It helped my logical mind come to grips with some unanswered questions I had after confirmation into the church of my youth. This book is not so much about religion and more about scientifically making a case for 'God'. After making his case he reinforces it through explaining God as a process of spiritual awakening. No matter what your religious background is, I believe you will gain insight into your existence through this book.
