Every one of us, says Chopra, has the ability to experience God personally and directly. And this ability is not shaped by any one religion, but by an instinct that is `hardwired' into the brain. Chopra explains that there are seven phases of growth towards this experience, and takes us 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. This is the level at which saints and sages dwell, and which we, too, can attain.306pp, 126mm x 198mm, Paperback, 2001
