Overview

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.

Maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance, but the monotone voice almost immediately put me to sleep, -- I also felt like he was talking a lot without saying anything.

I can't truely say if the information in this book was interesting or of any value. I couldn't even get through the first CD because Deepak Chopra as a reader is very monotone. I kept zoning out and found it very hard to follow.

While I love some of Deepak's other works this one is a sleeper. It's complexitiy is baffling and once you have interpreted these complexities the author is saying absolutely nothing.

I like this book but you have to make sure you pay attention because there are several complicated concepts and you may have to repeat the CD a couple of time to grasp them The only thing I don't agree with is that he states that the world in not external but inside us. If you read the book Journey of Souls by Michael Newton it will help to understand what Deepak is trying to say.

Chopra can make the most complex material extremely simple.

  • Book Rating: 4/5

Great book in typical Deepak style!! This book will make you think from a part of your being that isnt accessed in the "ordinary" world. Deepak is an incredibly deep thinker that inspires the reader to delve deep into the recesses of their own spirit to explore their purpose for being here.
