Book Description

Life is full of challenges, both big and small. Spirituality is here to offer solutions.

Over the course of his career as physician, teacher, and bestselling author, Deepak Chopra has received thousands of questions from people facing every kind of challenge. They have asked how to lead more fulfilling lives, how to overcome relationship problems and personal obstacles. What’s the best way to deal with a passive-aggressive friend? Can a stagnant career be jump-started? In a world full of distractions and stress, how does one find time for meditation?

Hidden among all of these questions are answers waiting to be uncovered.

In this groundbreaking book, Chopra shows you how to expand your awareness, which is the key to the confusion and conflict we all face. “The secret is that the level of the problem is never the level of the solution,” he writes. By rising to the level of the solution in your own awareness, you can transform obstacles into opportunities. Chopra leads the reader to what he calls “the true self,” where peace, clarity, and wisdom serve as guides in times of crisis. For Chopra, spirituality is primarily about consciousness, not about religious dogma or relying on the conventional notion of God. “There is no greater power for success and personal growth than your own awareness.” With practical insight, Spiritual Solutions provides the tools and strategies to enable you to meet life’s challenges from within and to experience a sense of genuine fulfillment and purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another "Home Run!" for Deepak Chopra April 16, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
There is always more to a situation (issue/challenge) than meets the "eye." First appearances of a matter are just a way of bringing your attention to what needs correcting in your life. Instead of staying at the "level" of the problem, rise above it and try to see what message is being communicated to you via the situation at hand. Deepak Chopra does it AGAIN with "Spiritual Solutions." When I thought that even HE would run out of steam, there came "Spiritual Solutions" with all the answers to questions ruminating in my mind. According to Deepak, there are three levels of awareness about a problem or situation: 1. Contracted Awareness, where you stay at the level of the problem 2. Extended Awareness, where you begin to sense/know that there is more to the problem than meets the eye. 3. Pure Awareness, where you are able to recognize the situation for what it is and respond from a higher level. "This is the level where no problems exist," Chopra writes. "Every challenge is a creative opportunity. You feel completely aligned with the forces of nature."
The book was thoughtfully presented, getting to the heart of the "spiritual solutions" in the beginning by offering right upfront the three levels and how we can identify where we are in terms of "awareness." I especially felt soothed to know that there is a reason for my "sometimes" impulsiveness and also my irritation when people HIDE their "agendas," with me immediately distrusting/disassociating from them. The third section, Q&A, is a great offering. Questions were thoughtfully chosen so as to provide comprehensive insights (answers) into questions challenging many on a daily basis. The fourth/final section was awesome: Creating Your Own Solutions. This gets to the heart of the matter of spirituality, i.e. all answers lie within ourselves and that our "true self" always is communicating with us. "Strongly Recommend" for those on spiritual path!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Spiritual Journey June 18, 2012
Format:Hardcover
This is the first book by Deepak Chopra that I have read. I am not familiar with this author's work and I found some of his concepts difficult to understand. Part of it was the terminology. I did like his idea that a problem can be transformed into a creative opportunity. For me it is a new way of looking at problems that I have not thought of before.

Chopra talks a lot about consciousness and awareness and how to expand it. He also talks about the "true self" and I am not exactly sure what that is. According to this author "There is no greater power for success and personal growth than your own awareness".

For me, the most useful part of the book was the section called "Dear Deepak: One on One". In this section the author shares letters from people about some problem or dilemma in their lives and he answers their questions. Seeing how he applied his principles to real world, everyday problems was quite helpful. I may read some of his other books. -- Valerie Lull, Author, Ten Healthy Teas

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed April 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read pretty much everything Deepak Chopra has written over the years. I've even paid $175 for the privilege of sitting in the first row to hear him speak, and his books have, in the past, been an inspiration to me. I must say that I was disappointed with this book, and mostly with the Q&A. I found his answers to be judgmental, trite, and at times actually rude or hurtful. Lacking was insight into how one would actually go about expanding their own awareness given their very personal situation. Not what I had expected at all, and sorry to say I was quite disappointed not just in the book, but in Deepak's lack of compassion, patience or good advice.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Trusted Authority July 26, 2012
Format:Hardcover
Dr. Chopra is quite simply very cool. The reason he has such appeal is beyond his style is a genius of a man who has spent his life studying what makes for a high quality of living, both physically and spiritually.

In Spiritual Solutions Dr. Chopra continues his pursuit of helping people recognize that health and healing need to happen in the invisible as well as the visible.

As Chopra has shared in discussing fascinating experiments with placebos (such as cancer patients receiving a placebo and being told it was a powerful drug that had balding as a side effect and then went bald, BELIEF is the drug.

However, much of traditional medicine treats the body while ignoring the spirit. Thus comes the infamous debate, are we physical beings having a spiritual experience, or are spiritual beings having a physical experience. If that latter as Chopra believes, then treating the spirit will bring healing to the physical and to our relationships and lives.

It was Dr. Chopra who changed my own thinking when I first heard him share that we have 60,000 thoughts a day; unfortunately for many people the next day they will have 95% of the same thoughts.

Want to change your life? Take charge of your thoughts and change your thinking. I work in corrections teaching life skill classes and cognitive behavioral therapy to the residents. Chopra models our own motto, the content is our thinking is the quality of our lives, as has been written;

Watch your thoughts, they become your words.
Watch your words, they become your actions.
Watch your actions, they become your habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny. (Anonymous)
