'I originally bought The Book of Secrets for my brother, who already had it. I kept it, and eventually read it myself, following my brother and mother' s deaths. It was simply uplifting and so very very helpful to reframe and understand so many conflicting emotions. I continue to read it now - Deepak Chopra is inspirational.'
Very best wishes, Karen Tweed (composer of Midnight May Monday CD, D210328)
The secret hunger that gnaws at people's souls has nothing to do with externals like money, status and security. It's the inner person who craves meaning in life, the end of suffering, and answers to the riddles of love, death, God, the soul, good and evil. A life spent on the surface will never answer these questions or satisfy the needs that drive us to ask them. Finding the hidden dimensions in yourself is the only way to fulfil your deepest hunger. And what better guide could you wish for on your quest than The Book of Secrets, Deepak Chopra's profoundly intelligent and original exploration of the mystery of existence? Step by step, he leads you to the deepest level of your being, the place where you do not have to find wisdom, for you are wisdom. He reveals the mystery of existence not by giving you more knowledge, but by steadily paring away all the layers of illusion that come between you and the light you are. As Deepak says, 'It isn't possible for the self to keep secrets from itself forever, no matter how thoroughly we?ve been trained to believe otherwise.'
