Overview

Peace is the Way by Deepak Chopra

“There is no way to peace, peace is the way.”

This statement has never been more true. Now, Deepak Chopra expands on A. J. Muste’s insight, teaching us how to expand awareness, stop reacting out of fear, and reject war—one person at a time. As Dr. Chopra says, “Violence may be innate in human nature, but so is its opposite: love. The next stage of humanity, the leap we are poised to take, will be guided by the force of that love.”

Surveys constantly reaffirm to us that our number one desire is for world peace - yet we also feel powerless in our efforts to create it. If ever there was a time and a real place to form a ¿global community of conscious peace makers¿, that time is now and the place is now described in detail in Deepak Chopra¿s latest masterpiece, Peace is the Way. This is the time to take the important steps in the direction of personal evolution. Our chosen way of being in the world has more than a personal consequence: it is truly the power necessary to create the peace we desire both personally and globally. We¿re not talking about an anti-war movement. We¿re talking about a peace movement as in moving with peace. With much-needed insights on why we are NOT creating peace, Chopra writes on The Myth of Security, The Metaphysics of Terror and The Chemistry of Anger he delivers the solutions in Putting the Body at Peace, God is Revealed in Stages and Seven Practices for Peacemakers. Chopra clearly outlines how each one of us can end war one person at a time. Take this important book to heart and make practical use of it. Each of us has our own individual wars within ourselves, our families, our communities, etc. Our contribution to ourselves and to humanity must be to ¿be for, think for, feel for, speak for, act for, create for and share for peace¿. There IS something you can do. Start with understanding how.

This book is another outstanding, thought-provoking selection from Deepak Chopra that explains the basis of the senseless and needless violence of today's troubled world and offers spiritual solutions for ending the chaos and bloodshed. The world's spiritual teachers all understand that humanity cannot long continue on its current path which will almost certainly lead to utter destruction on this planet, yet the answer is to stop viewing ourselves as victims of the 'less than human' villains--'Others'--and begin respecting our common humanity. When we question the cultural, religious, and political forces that motivate and influence our spheres of existence, we can begin to see other people as ordinary people like ourselves with the same desire for happiness and live the way of peace. In this extensively researched book, Dr. Chopra provides the historical, social, and psychological underpinnings of how the world arrived at the place it now finds itself, living in constant fear of extremists and terrorists which can be found in all cultures and religions. I especially loved the epilogue which is an apt and wise conclusion to the book's premise. It features the Buddhist fable of Sticky Hair and Prince Five Weapons which teaches that compassion is the most potent weapon we can use to utterly destroy our enemies.

This is one of my favourite Deepak Chopra books -- brilliant. And practical, too. You'll love this read, and then you'll want to get your friends to read it, too! Ailsa www.buildyourownhouse.ca/ailsa/books.htm

Deepak Chopra juxtaposes current events with the wisdom of the ancient sages. While recognizing a growing threat of xenophobia and a collective fatigue with the same old solutions to the same old problems, Chopra offers simple day to day suggestions for individuals to raise peace consciousness in our personal little corner of the world.
