Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Assuring readers that 'finding the hidden dimensions in yourself is the only way to fulfill your deepest hunger,' bestselling author Chopra shares 15 spiritual secrets for enlightenment. These secrets may sound easy — 'the world is in you,' 'what you seek, you already are,' 'freedom tames the mind' — but Chopra offers sophisticated thought to challenge a reader's spiritual status quo. Blending science and spirituality, he shows how the mystery of life can be illustrated by the wisdom and workings of one's body, as 'every secret in this book goes back to the existence of an invisible intelligence that operates beneath the visible surface of life.' The most important secret is transcending one's egocentric viewpoint and accepting a single, unified reality: 'you are not in the world; the world is in you.' Each well-written chapter offers a vibrant discussion of these distilled principles, including exercises to help readers apply these secrets to their lives. For example, Chopra focuses a chapter on how death makes life possible: 'Only by facing death can you develop real passion for being alive.' Chopra recasts death as a way to 'imagine yourself into a new form with a new location in space and time.' To do this, he suggests exfoliating one's self-image by imagining oneself at various stages of life, past and future: 'When you see every earthly vestige of yourself vanish,' he concludes, 'you realize you will never succeed in extinguishing yourself.' This isn't easy enlightenment. Chopra pushes his readers to do hard spiritual work in this thoughtful and thought-provoking book. (Sept.)"
