Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Devotees of the bestselling author (The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success), who founded the Chopra Center for Well-Being, will welcome his latest ideas on how to live a more fulfilling life. He employs his familiar combination of scientific theory and new age mysticism to present this guide to harnessing what he calls synchro-destiny. According to Chopra, an important level of human existence consists of the nonlocal or spiritual domain. Drawing on the example of physics's unpredictable quantum leap, when an electron unpredictably jumps from one orbit to another, he maintains that our own lives too are unpredictable, that it is impossible know what direction life will take. However, such randomness in the universe is actually interconnected. Unpredictable coincidences are, the author maintains, important messages that can be used to achieve one's true destiny. This process of synchro-destiny consists of connecting the individual soul to the universal soul through a number of mental exercises, provided here. Although Chopra's theories are expressed in a confusing and repetitive manner, the techniques he advocates may prove interesting to those who enjoy his humanistic, if convoluted, approach to self-help. Among the seven principles for achieving synchro-destiny are the daily practice of meditation, a continued focus on one's deepest desires and the acknowledgment of emotional pain.

From Booklist

Chopra is at it again, finding yet another way to share his mystical knowledge by helping us get to know ourselves better, or live fuller lives, or learn how to forgive some childhood slight, or rewrite our destinies, or explore the mystical realms that dwell within us. In this book, Chopra focuses on the coincidences that occur in our lives. Using a rather complicated assemblage of scientific-sounding information, combined with vintage Chopra-isms, the author teaches that coincidences are messages, clues about our lives that we need to follow more closely. He claims that if you live your life with a better appreciation of coincidences and become sensitive to the underlying meaning of these events, you will achieve the spontaneous fulfillment of your deepest desires. Per usual, the book includes exercises and steps to lead you along the way to the promised conclusion, a happier and more fulfilling life. Chopra has established a name for himself in the self-help genre, so librarians might want to be sure they have a copy. Kathleen Hughes

Wer Deepak Chopra nicht mag - wird ihn auch danach nicht mögen.
Wer ihn noch nicht kennt - sieht sich mindestens der Herausforderung gegenüber, so einen "Unfug" zu glauben.

Schlichtere Gemüter so wie ich - obendrein Ingenieur - neigen zu Zweifeln. Das widerspricht doch dem gesunden Menschen-Verstand. Unwissenschaftlich, Wunschdenken, auch wieder nur so eine östliche Weisheit ...

Soweit zum Kontra.

Wer von sich glaubt logisch zu denken ... sollte sich mal vor Augen führen an welchen "Unfug" er glaubt, der vor 1, 2, 300 Jahren nicht nur für (wissenschaftlich) unmöglich gehalten wurde, wofür man auch schon mal auf dem Scheiterhaufen hätte landen können:

- Der Mensch kann fliegen
- Man kann sprechen mit jemandem in 100 km Entferunung
- Unzählige magische Helfer dienen uns, die mit elektrischem Strom betrieben werden

Ich brauche nicht mehr aufzuzählen. Ist eh klar: das einzige was sicher ist - wir wissen, dass wir nichts wissen.
Das Wissen von 1900 - überholt.
Das Wissen von 2000 - überholt.
Das Wissen von 2100 - auch bald überholt ... etc.

Zu jeder Zeit gibt es einen gewissen Konsens über das was geht und nicht geht.
Und dieses Wissen, Können, Gehen ... schreitet mit unglaublicher Geschwindigkeit voran.

So auch hier. In den 90ern hatte Rupert Sheldrake - ein nobelpreisverdächtiger Wissenschaftler - eben jene Wissenschaftsgemeinde schockiert durch Veröffentlichungen, die gar nicht in deren altes Weltbild passten (Das Gedächtnis der Natur u.v.a.).

Sheldrake bringt ja einen Begriff ins Spiel - das morphologische Feld - über das alles mit allem in der Natur verbunden ist.
Was sagt Sheldrake?

Vereinfacht: unser Bewußtsein und unsere Gewohnheiten nehmen EInfluß auf die Dinge (Tiere, Menschen, Maschinen ...)
Seither machen führende Köpfe in der Physik, Molekularbiologie, Medizin ... jede Menge neue Entdeckungen - streng nach wissenschaftlichen Methoden geprüft - die auch die Wissenschaft zwingt, alte Denkschemen fallen zu lassen, mindestens zu erweitern.

Soviel gesagt - wer offen ist, wer glaubt, dass die Welt in 10, 100 oder 1000 Jahren anders aussieht, der weiß sich selber als einen Reisenden durch die Zeit. Durch SEINE Zeit. Und auch wenn sie langsam weiter schreitet, das was heute noch etwas schräg anmutet - ist irgendwann eh jedem klar und einsichtig.

So könnte es auch hier sein.
Was Deepak beschreibt klingt für den aufgeklärten, modernen Menschen nur schräg.

Was Deepak beschreibt kenne ich aber auch aus meinem eigenen Leben. Trotz all meiner Bedenken passieren manchmal unglaubliche Dinge - Zweifel erfüllen sich / penetranter Glaube erfüllt sich. Und zwischendurch immer wieder solche kleineren und größeren WOW-Momente, Wunder.

Glaube an dein Glück - dann kommt es gerne. Mindestens schon mal eine gute Arbeitshypothese.
Für den der offen ist weiter zu denken, oder der selber schon unglaubliche Erlebnisse in seinem Leben gemacht hat ...

wieder mal eine echte Inspiration von Deepak Chopra! :-)
