“The world is in you.” The world is in your consciousness. ( )

People *believe* this crap?

"The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience. " - because fuck personal responsibility, right?

"Evolution is win-win…life is self-correcting." Except evolution is the result of millions of mutations and NO mutation is ever a negative, right?

"Never forget that you are not in the world; the world is in you." What the fuck is this shit?

"Creation is set up to bring you constant hints and clues about your role as co-creator." Sorry, but the universe doesn't give a crap about you.

I would like to apologize to each and every braincell I felt dying as this garbage tried to convince its audience to abandon science and reason in favor of defeatism. ( )

I have read and listened to almost everything Deepak has written or taped (I love listening to his voice!) This book spoke to me. It all made sense to me after reading The Book of Secrets. I admit I had to reread many passages but in the end this one has lingered in everything I do now. If you are seeking answers or needing affirmation, read this book.

Excellent description of East Indian and New Age thought by a medical doctor trained in India with a practice in the US. More than philosophy, this book contains many practical applications of New Thought for our modern era. ( )

Book description
Ieders leven is een boek met geheimen, dat wacht om gelezen te worden. Het geheim van de liefde is alleen maar in onszelf te vinden, net als de geheimen van heelwording, compassie, geloof en het meest verborgen geheim van allemaal: wie wij in wezen zijn.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0517706245, Hardcover)

Every life is a book of secrets, ready to be opened. The secret of perfect love is found there, along with the secrets of healing, compassion, faith, and the most elusive one of all: who we really are. We are still mysteries to ourselves, despite the proximity of these answers, and what we most long to know remains lodged deep inside.

We all want to know how to find a soul mate, what career would be most fulfilling, how to live a life with meaning, and how to teach our children well. We are looking for a personal breakthrough, a turning point, a revelation that brings with it new meaning. The Book of Secrets--a crystalline distillation of insights and wisdom accumulated over the lifetime of one of the great spiritual thinkers of our time--provides an exquisite new tool for achieving just that.

Because answers to the questions at the center of life are counterintuitive, they are often hidden from view, sequestered from our everyday gaze. In his ongoing quest to elevate our experience, bestselling author Deepak Chopra has isolated fifteen secrets that drive the narrative of this inspiring book--and of our lives. From "The World Is in You" and "What You Seek, You Already Are" to "Evil Is Not Your Enemy" and "You Are Truly Free When You Are Not a Person," The Book of Secrets is rich with insights, a priceless treasure that can transport us beyond change to transformation, and from there to a sacred place where we can savor the nectar of enlightenment.

"The Book of Secrets is the finest and most profound of Deepak Chopra’s books to date. Want the answers to the secrets of life? Let me recommend that you start right here." -- Ken Wilber, author of A Brief History of Everything

"Teilhard de Chardin said, 'We are spiritual beings having a human experience.' Chopra builds on this powerful thought in this recording that expands his life's work in spiritual approaches to daily living. He explains the laws of pure potentiality, giving, karma, least effort, intention and desire, detachment, and dharma and includes useful suggestions on how to apply these fundamental, natural principles if one is truly searching for purpose and a satisfying life. Ancient Vedic concepts form the basis of this philosophy of living that transcends the Eurocentric theological dogma that seems to preoccupy Western thought, especially among Americans" -- Library Jounal.… (more)
