Book Description

March 27 2012
Life is full of challenges, both big and small. Spirituality is here to offer solutions.

Over the course of his career as physician, teacher, and bestselling author, Deepak Chopra has received thousands of questions from people facing every kind of challenge. They have asked how to lead more fulfilling lives, how to overcome relationship problems and personal obstacles. What’s the best way to deal with a passive-aggressive friend? Can a stagnant career be jump-started? In a world full of distractions and stress, how does one find time for meditation?

Hidden among all of these questions are answers waiting to be uncovered.

In this groundbreaking book, Chopra shows you how to expand your awareness, which is the key to the confusion and conflict we all face. “The secret is that the level of the problem is never the level of the solution,” he writes. By rising to the level of the solution in your own awareness, you can transform obstacles into opportunities. Chopra leads the reader to what he calls “the true self,” where peace, clarity, and wisdom serve as guides in times of crisis. For Chopra, spirituality is primarily about consciousness, not about religious dogma or relying on the conventional notion of God. “There is no greater power for success and personal growth than your own awareness.” With practical insight, Spiritual Solutions provides the tools and strategies to enable you to meet life’s challenges from within and to experience a sense of genuine fulfillment and purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not to miss! May 18 2012
By Clara
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a must-read, must-keep, and must-recommend book, not only to those seeking answers to the so many "why?s", but to all whom you care about so they will undertake a happier journey in their life. I was skeptic at first, having bought it upon my friend's insistence. I was then totally engrossed as suddenly life matters begun to make sense indeed... and so easily. A life-changing! A+++

Format:Hardcover
It is very refreshing to find a book in the spiritual genre that provides real solutions to everyday, universal problems that are impacting so many of us on this human journey. Many books provide relief to the reader in the form of long-term practices that are meant to help the individual evolve their consciousness, which of course is of great benefit; however, being human means that we sometimes need immediate, easy to apply solutions as well.

In Deepak’s book, “Spiritual Solutions” we find some heartfelt advice to help us overcome many of the challenges we face in our day to day existence. I understand that many of our challenges have their roots in very individual circumstances, yet the advice given by Deepak seems to be easily applied regardless of the unique nature of the particular problem. Whether it’s relationship problems, financial problems, or questions related to consciousness and enlightenment, you will find numerous answers to these questions in, “Spiritual Solutions.”

As many notable people in history have stated, and I am paraphrasing here, the level of consciousness that created a problem needs to be exceeded in order to find a solution to the problem, and through expanding our awareness we are able to see our problems in a different light, or at least able to perceive solutions that we did not see previously. I believe that this book will assist the reader in expanding their awareness while providing immediate solutions to some of life’s great challenges. I tip my hat to Deepak for sharing his thoughts and solutions so directly in an era when so many have chosen a more indirect route.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another "Home Run!" for Deepak Chopra April 16 2012
By Che' Vyfhuis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
There is always more to a situation (issue/challenge) than meets the "eye." First appearances of a matter are just a way of bringing your attention to what needs correcting in your life. Instead of staying at the "level" of the problem, rise above it and try to see what message is being communicated to you via the situation at hand. Deepak Chopra does it AGAIN with "Spiritual Solutions." When I thought that even HE would run out of steam, there came "Spiritual Solutions" with all the answers to questions ruminating in my mind. According to Deepak, there are three levels of awareness about a problem or situation: 1. Contracted Awareness, where you stay at the level of the problem 2. Extended Awareness, where you begin to sense/know that there is more to the problem than meets the eye. 3. Pure Awareness, where you are able to recognize the situation for what it is and respond from a higher level. "This is the level where no problems exist," Chopra writes. "Every challenge is a creative opportunity. You feel completely aligned with the forces of nature."
The book was thoughtfully presented, getting to the heart of the "spiritual solutions" in the beginning by offering right upfront the three levels and how we can identify where we are in terms of "awareness." I especially felt soothed to know that there is a reason for my "sometimes" impulsiveness and also my irritation when people HIDE their "agendas," with me immediately distrusting/disassociating from them. The third section, Q&A, is a great offering. Questions were thoughtfully chosen so as to provide comprehensive insights (answers) into questions challenging many on a daily basis. The fourth/final section was awesome: Creating Your Own Solutions. This gets to the heart of the matter of spirituality, i.e. all answers lie within ourselves and that our "true self" always is communicating with us. "Strongly Recommend" for those on spiritual path!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Spiritual Journey June 18 2012
By Valerie B. Lull - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is the first book by Deepak Chopra that I have read. I am not familiar with this author's work and I found some of his concepts difficult to understand. Part of it was the terminology. I did like his idea that a problem can be transformed into a creative opportunity. For me it is a new way of looking at problems that I have not thought of before.

Chopra talks a lot about consciousness and awareness and how to expand it. He also talks about the "true self" and I am not exactly sure what that is. According to this author "There is no greater power for success and personal growth than your own awareness".

For me, the most useful part of the book was the section called "Dear Deepak: One on One". In this section the author shares letters from people about some problem or dilemma in their lives and he answers their questions. Seeing how he applied his principles to real world, everyday problems was quite helpful. I may read some of his other books. -- Valerie Lull, Author, Ten Healthy Teas

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed April 29 2012
By Omanijewl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read pretty much everything Deepak Chopra has written over the years. I've even paid $175 for the privilege of sitting in the first row to hear him speak, and his books have, in the past, been an inspiration to me. I must say that I was disappointed with this book, and mostly with the Q&A. I found his answers to be judgmental, trite, and at times actually rude or hurtful. Lacking was insight into how one would actually go about expanding their own awareness given their very personal situation. Not what I had expected at all, and sorry to say I was quite disappointed not just in the book, but in Deepak's lack of compassion, patience or good advice.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Trusted Authority July 26 2012
By Tobin B. Crenshaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Dr. Chopra is quite simply very cool. The reason he has such appeal is beyond his style is a genius of a man who has spent his life studying what makes for a high quality of living, both physically and spiritually.

In Spiritual Solutions Dr. Chopra continues his pursuit of helping people recognize that health and healing need to happen in the invisible as well as the visible.

As Chopra has shared in discussing fascinating experiments with placebos (such as cancer patients receiving a placebo and being told it was a powerful drug that had balding as a side effect and then went bald, BELIEF is the drug.

However, much of traditional medicine treats the body while ignoring the spirit. Thus comes the infamous debate, are we physical beings having a spiritual experience, or are spiritual beings having a physical experience. If that latter as Chopra believes, then treating the spirit will bring healing to the physical and to our relationships and lives.

It was Dr. Chopra who changed my own thinking when I first heard him share that we have 60,000 thoughts a day; unfortunately for many people the next day they will have 95% of the same thoughts.

Want to change your life? Take charge of your thoughts and change your thinking. I work in corrections teaching life skill classes and cognitive behavioral therapy to the residents. Chopra models our own motto, the content is our thinking is the quality of our lives, as has been written;

Watch your thoughts, they become your words.
Watch your words, they become your actions.
Watch your actions, they become your habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny. (Anonymous)

1.0 out of 5 stars spiritual solution,by Deepak May 16 2012
By Belai - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Deepak as a spiritual leader is one of my idol, I read most books Deepak Chopra has written over the years. I loved it, I learn so much from his book.
"spiritual solution" I must say that I was really disappointed and shocked by this book, mostly with the Q&A. I found his answers (advice) to be judgmental, rude, critical, and at times actually hurtful. Most of the time he takes a part of the question (only a part) and insult the person... very rude..
I would like to know, what those people felt about him after his answer, I don't remember reading any positive or constructive answer at all, it was all judgmental in a negative way...after several books he has written I did not expected this at all, I am not sorry to say I was quite disappointed
In the rest of book.. it was al monotony, he was saying same thing over and over with different words...it is sooo boring... I am hoping he did not actually wrote this book
