With astonishing insight and breathtaking clarity, here is an answer to the only question that has ever really mattered. An exploration of the seven ways we experience God.
In this remarkable book, Chopra takes us step by step from the from stage, where the brain's 'fight or flight' response leads us to a God who is an all-powerful and sometimes unpredictable parent, to the seventh stage, where the brain experiences God as pure being, beyond thought, a sacred presence. It is at this seventh stage that we attain a true, life-changing spiritual understanding of the world land our place in it; it is the level at which saints and sages dwell.
All seven stages are available to each of us, all the time.
In How to Know God, Deepak Chopra charts a fascinating course as he explores mysticism, religious ecstasy, genius, telepathy, multiple personality and clairvoyance, drawing insights from psychology, neurology and physics, as well as from the great religions. The result is vintage Chopra applied to the greatest subject of all: the ultimate quest we are all on, whether we realize it or not. For, as Chopra puts it, 'God is our highest instinct to know ourselves.' This extraordinary book makes a dramatic and enduring, contribution to that knowledge.
