Publisher's Summary

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, best-selling author Deepak Chopra has isolated 15 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.

A superbly challenging and enlightening audio book

This is surely one of Deepak's best books on audio. From the first minute to the last, Deepak's insights into spirituality are stunning. The way the book is organized and his helpful suggestions for acting upon the secrets are done well.

Sublime

After listening to this book, I make Deepak my number one mentor for spirituality. His mind is sublime. He is by far the most lucid thinker of our time and embodies how far consciousness has come. My own personal evolution and awareness has taken quantum leaps with his teachings. I can feel estatic knowing that I am part of a consciousness that has no boundries and will never stop evolving for eternity. Every "now" moment in my life can only become more and more insightful and blissful. I know that death as percieved by my mind can only bring the greatest quantum leap in the evolution of conscousness that has ever been experienced. And I can only imagine that the evolution will gain infinite momentum beyond imagining as consciousness grows stronger at manifestation in the infinite dimensions within. I am beyond estactic to find out what my consciousness will manifest as I let God live my life and my true power is revealed through my infinite intelligence, which I so kindly granted myself.

Insightful - deep and intense

I Loved the concepts. I will have to listen to it more than once to fully appreciate all the subtle messages. It will be one of the books i will go back to so a good buy from an audiobook persective. Deepak does take a little bit of getting used to from a voice perspective.
