Chopra is an incisive and persuasive writer. Here, he takes as his
subject the most profound mystery of all: how to know God. Chopra,
a former doctor, uses anecdotal evidence along with scientific
argument, exploring phenomena such as clairvoyance and telepathy as
well as aspects of psychology and neurology. It's an interesting
and stimulating read, and the authoritative tone does much to sweep
the sceptical reader through. However, his premise - to examine God
as an objective entity - is almost immediately belied by his stated
search for God as subjective; as a component or state of the mind.
'We are trying to find the basic facts that will make God possible,
real and useful,' he asserts, adding that 'God is as we are'. A
'useful' God seems an unattractive and rather pointless
proposition, but Chopra does not pursue this line, choosing instead
to focus on the brighter picture of the divine within - the
limitless self. (Kirkus UK)
The bestselling author of Ageless Body, Timeless Mind has written
his most ambitious and important work yet - an exploration of the
seven ways we experience God. These are shaped, not by any one
religion, but by an instinct that is hardwired into the brain. In
this remarkable book, Chopra takes us step by step from the first
stage, where the brain's 'fight or flight' response leads us to a
God who is an all-powerful and sometimes unpredictable parent, to
the seventh stage, where the brain experiences God as pure being,
beyond thought, a sacred presence. It is at this seventh stage that
we attain a true, life-changing spiritual understanding of the
world and our place in it; it is the level at which saints and
sages dwell. All seven stages are available to each of us, all the
time. Deepak Chopra explores mysticism, religious ecstasy, genius,
telepathy, multiple personality and clairvoyance, drawing insights
from psychology, neurology and physics, as well as from the great
religions. The result is vintage Chopra applied to the ultimate
