Book Description

As elegant as his bestselling How to Know God and as practical as his phenomenal The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, this groundbreaking new book from Deepak Chopra contains a dramatic premise: Not only are everyday coincidences meaningful, they actually provide us with glimpses of the field of infinite possibilities that lies at the heart of all things. By gaining access to this wellspring of creation, we can literally rewrite our destinies in any way we wish.

From this realm of pure potential we are connected to everything that exists and everything that is yet to come. “Coincidences” can then be recognized as containing precious clues about particular facets of our lives that require our attention. As you become more aware of coincidences and their meanings, you begin to connect more and more with the underlying field of infinite possibilities. This is when the magic begins. This is when you achieve the spontaneous fulfillment of desire.

At a time when world events may leave us feeling especially insignificant and vulnerable, Deepak Chopra restores our awareness of the awesome powers within us. And through specific principles and exercises he provides the tools with which to create the magnificent, miraculous life that is our birthright.


From the Hardcover edition.


Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Devotees of the bestselling author (The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success), who founded the Chopra Center for Well-Being, will welcome his latest ideas on how to live a more fulfilling life. He employs his familiar combination of scientific theory and new age mysticism to present this guide to harnessing what he calls synchro-destiny. According to Chopra, an important level of human existence consists of the nonlocal or spiritual domain. Drawing on the example of physics's unpredictable quantum leap, when an electron unpredictably jumps from one orbit to another, he maintains that our own lives too are unpredictable, that it is impossible know what direction life will take. However, such randomness in the universe is actually interconnected. Unpredictable coincidences are, the author maintains, important messages that can be used to achieve one's true destiny. This process of synchro-destiny consists of connecting the individual soul to the universal soul through a number of mental exercises, provided here. Although Chopra's theories are expressed in a confusing and repetitive manner, the techniques he advocates may prove interesting to those who enjoy his humanistic, if convoluted, approach to self-help. Among the seven principles for achieving synchro-destiny are the daily practice of meditation, a continued focus on one's deepest desires and the acknowledgment of emotional pain.

From Booklist

Chopra is at it again, finding yet another way to share his mystical knowledge by helping us get to know ourselves better, or live fuller lives, or learn how to forgive some childhood slight, or rewrite our destinies, or explore the mystical realms that dwell within us. In this book, Chopra focuses on the coincidences that occur in our lives. Using a rather complicated assemblage of scientific-sounding information, combined with vintage Chopra-isms, the author teaches that coincidences are messages, clues about our lives that we need to follow more closely. He claims that if you live your life with a better appreciation of coincidences and become sensitive to the underlying meaning of these events, you will achieve the spontaneous fulfillment of your deepest desires. Per usual, the book includes exercises and steps to lead you along the way to the promised conclusion, a happier and more fulfilling life. Chopra has established a name for himself in the self-help genre, so librarians might want to be sure they have a copy. Kathleen Hughes

5.0 out of 5 stars Fulfill Your Desires! October 22, 2003
Format:Hardcover
I took Deepak's class, SynchroDestiny, years ago at the Chopra Center. I loved it! So I was really happy that I could have this book to read over and over again. And for anyone who likes the book, I recommend that you take the class, it is phenomenal!
There are so many things that I like about this book. Perhaps the most valuable for me is in learning to recognize life's little signals - those messages that show us we're headed in the right direction. It's about awareness, and recognizing that these are not random coincidences, but signposts we should stop and look at.
This book, and "The 7 Spiritual Laws of Success" are two books that I will always keep and refer to often. Thanks, Deepak, for sharing your profound wisdom with us once again!

5.0 out of 5 stars A PERFECT fit ... for me. April 7, 2004
Format:Hardcover
No book is for everyone ... no book can reach every person in the infinite variety of lives we live. But THIS book was precisely what I was looking for when I found it. I've referred to it over and over and over again and it has proven to be of invaluable assistance to me as I've worked to change my life from the inside out.
As I first read the book, and was blown away by how perfectly it filled in the gaps in the picture of life that was forming within me, I also realized "this book isn't for everybody". Read the other reviews and follow your instincts. If it sounds like something that you've been searching for but haven't been able to find ... then I think you'll be delightfully pleased. If it sounds like smoke and mirrors to you, then look for something else. If you're in the mood for an apple, why eat an orange and blame the orange when you're done?

5.0 out of 5 stars Symphony of Synchrodestiny February 23, 2005
Format:Hardcover
Each of us is immersed in a network of coincidences. We are synchronized with one another through a conspiracy of coincidences. This synchrony is choreographed by a great pervasive intelligence that lies at the heart of nature. We discover that by applying attention and intention to these coincidences, we can create specific outcomes in our lives. We consciously shape our destinies moving closer to enlightenment. This is the miracle of Synchrodestiny.

The universe is an on-off phenomenon. The continuity and solidity of the world exists only in the imagination. In reality, we are all flickering in and out of existence all the time. The sensory experience of al living beings is a purely artificial construct created in the imagination. There is a Zen story in which two monks are looking nat a flag that is weaving in the wind. The first one says, "The flag is weaving." The second one says, "No, the wind is weaving." Their teacher comes over and they pose him the question. The teacher says, "You both are wrong. Only consciousness is moving." As consciousness moves, it imagines the world into existence.

Without consciousness acting as an observer and interpreter, every thing would exist only as pure potential. That pure potential is the Virtual domain, the third level of existence. The first two levels are the Physical domain and the Quantum domain. It is nonlocal and cannot be depleted. It is unending and all-encompassing. Tapping into that potential is what allows us to make miracles.

There's a deeper level of reality," says Chopra. Science calls it quantum reality. Quantum in physics defines the smallest indivisible unit of information and energy. So a quantum of light is a photon, a quantum of gravity is a graviton.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take notice of your reality October 21, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
In his latest book, Deepak Chopra tells us to be conscious of the messages that we receive from the universe. I did not find a lot of new information here, but enjoyed the method of presentation immensely, so I recommend it. I also recommend Optimal Thinking: How To Be Your Best Self, a superlative universal book to accept and let go of what is out of our control and OPTIMIZE what is in our control and create our best life. I also recommend The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People which gives you a solid path to effectiveness and to get along with others.

Format:Hardcover
Deepak Chopra reviews the evidence that confirms we are all linked together in a web of consciousness. Going well beyond this basic fact, he weaves a marvelous thesis suggesting that there are no coincidences. Every single event is pregnant with meaning. The challenge is to open ourselves to become aware of the invitations in what appear to be coincidences - to waken to our participation in the web of ongoing creation.

The more we are in the flow of the universe, the more often and the more profoundly our inner desires and wishes can manifest into outer realities. This is not to say that our every whim will be granted to us.

This reviewer was concerned at first that Chopra's suggestions could be misinterpreted by readers as an invitation to activating the powers of manifestation for selfish desires. Chopra quickly dissipated that concern.

Chopra presents a helpful series of exercises with each chapter, inviting readers to journey into experiential understandings of synchrodestiny. These include centering, meditation, clearing oneself of negativity that can lead to projections on others, and moving into deeper spiritual awarenesses.

This engaging book is warmly recommended for seekers on the path of spiritual awareness and healing ways of contributing to a world that is sorely in need of healing.
