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.

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!
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
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)
"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
