This Deepak Chopra's masterpiece very clearly (and in simple terms) explains how is that conscience masters us and the whole cosmos. It goes on to explain with beautiful stories, metaphors and scientific evidence the mechanisms behind our brains and mind, our bodies, our souls and the definitive connections between us all and every single "thing" in the universe. We are and everything else, the expression of the cosmos! The author's background in Vedanta ties the book together. While he explores many avenues ancient and modern it is tied together by returning to the Vedas and the rishis. This appealed to me for I have found this to be the root of the perennial philosophy- the anchor of the Golden Thread. The teaching of the three domains (physical objects, subtle objects, and pure consciousness) within the interpenetrating Reality of the Akashic field resonates with truth. Moreover, the concept that you can switch your primary allegiance from the physical realm to the subtle in life- and be supported by it- has been satisfactorily verified in my own life. Similarly, over identification with the physical realm will hold you back from what is truly significant in life. I would highly recommend this book to all who are pursuing a spiritual path.

I bought this book as a Christian looking to gain some insight and ideas on death and the afterlife. The first few chapters were very well written, until i had gotten a taste of Chopra's warped view of Christianity. By only page 105 i was forced to shelve the book, after Chopra implied that Christians cancel out their sins by committing good deeds, and we only get into heaven by doing good deeds, and im sorry but that is far from the truth. Christians achieve salvation by accepting Christ as our savior, not through works. If someone is going to write a book on a subject as this one, he ought to be more familiar with the core beliefs of other religions.....
