A viral Ebook The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life This is not one of those books you can just read once and take all you need to know from it. You really would have to read this book several times to fully understand what Deepak Chopra is saying because the book is just so jam-packed with information on basically everything: how to bring unity to your life, how to remove suffering from your life, how the Universe works, what the meaning of life is, how our standard notion of evil is an illusion, how to understand time, and how to come to terms with death.My favorite chapters of the book, in particular, were the chapters teaching you how to let go of pain (Secret #5: The Cause of Suffering is Unreality, pp. 65-80) and how to accept death (Secret #10: Death Makes Life Possible, pp. 161-177). Both of those chapters were very well written, and I think a lot of people can benefit greatly from reading these sections at the very least.Unfortunately, there are sections of the book that I did not understand, and not through lack of trying. Even after reading whole sections twice and thrice, I still don't understand what he was trying to say. For example, there is a section of the book Deepak Chopra says how we need to stop thinking of ourselves as a person (p. 76). He says when we think of ourselves as a person we see the world as ourselves and then everything else. In reality it is that everything is one. I don't understand this. How can I not be a person? How can I not have been born? It just seems so illogical, and he doesn't explain it well enough in my opinion.There were, however, many great quotes that I was able to take from this book that I would like to share with you. Hopefully, you, the reader of my review, can connect with these quotes and take something from them. Maybe you will even appreciate them so much that you would then like to read this book also."To seek who you are, you have to let go of old images about yourself" (p. 56)."The road to freedom is not through feeling good; it is through feeling true to yourself" (p. 57)."To be centered is like saying I want to feel my home in creation" (p. 61)."Suffering is pain that we hold onto. It comes from the mind's mysterious instinct to believe that pain is good, or that it cannot be escaped, or that the person deserves it" (p. 65)."Most of us take for granted that time flies, meaning that it passes too quickly. But in the mindful state, time doesn't really pass at all. There is only a single instant of time that keeps renewing itself over and over with infinite variety" (p. 198)."You can't have a relationship with someone you don't pay attention to, and in your relationship to the universe, attention is paid here and now, or not at all" (p. 204)."What people experience as obstacles in life are reflections of a decision to shut out understanding" (p. 239)."At least once every day, do something that looks like a success in your eyes and that earns you praise from either yourself or someone else. Be sure that the external praise is sincere" (p. 242)."Don't let a day go by without asking who you are" (p. 260).
