Show synopsis In the most ambitious and important book of his career, Deepak Chopra sets us on a path to the ultimate spiritual experience. The bestselling author of "Ageless Body, Timeless Mind" and "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success" has written a groundbreaking exploration of the seven ways we experience God. These are shaped not by any one religion but by an instinct that is hard-wired into the brain. In this remarkable work, Chopra takes us step by step, from the first stage, where the brain's "fight or flight" response yields us the experience of a God who is an all-powerful parent, to the seventh stage, where the brain experiences God as pure being, a sacred presence that just is. All seven stages are available to us at all times. In "How to Know God," Deepak Chopra charts a fascinating course for us, as we explore 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 - that internationally-celebrated blend of philosophy and science- applied to the greatest subject of all. This is the quest all of us are on, whether we realize it or not. This is the ultimate hunt, for as Chopra puts it, "God is our highest instinct to know ourselves." This remarkable book makes a dramatic, and enduring, contribution to that knowledge.
