Life, Life, and More Life!
on February 17, 2007
The first time I ever conducted a study of one of Deepak Chopra's books, it was "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success." The language was so esoteric and poetic, I often felt like a translater, trying to explain to my class what Deepak meant. This book is an easy read by comparison. I love the concept that Deepak mainly focuses on, which is simply this: Consciousness is creative. Consciousness is eternal. So consciousness continues to create after death. In other words, through our consciousness, we actual "create" our own individual heaven or hell . . . temporarily, anyway. This concept is corroborated by another book I enjoyed on this subject, which is "Home With God" by Neale Donald Walsch.
I have given "Life After Death" 4 stars instead of 5 because about two thirds of the way through this book Deepak goes off on far too many tangents, and loses focus. However, there is one thread that holds most of this book together nicely, which is an East Indian fable that Deepak uses at the beginning of each chapter to illustrate some of his major points. I enjoyed that. All in all, there is much value in Deepak's latest work.
