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!
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?
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.Read more ›
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.
