North Stars:  Resources for our Spiritual Axis


The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
Deepak Chopra. Book and DVD.

The gift of language and clarity come through in this succinct spiritual and scientific understanding of how the universe works. I’ve long said if you only read one book for the rest of your life, it should be this one. Chopra starts with the Potential we all bring to our own unfolding, and moves it through to our Dharma, our purpose. In between he goes step by step through the dynamics of the other laws: giving and receiving, least effort, intention and desire, Karma (cause and effect) and, in my opinion, the biggest and most difficult law of all to master: detachment.

Understanding and living these laws can bring great peace and growth to us as individuals, nations and cultures. The book is easily read and can be referenced quickly. The DVD, while informative and visually compelling with Olivia Newton-John as a key part of the creative communication of content, is not as easily accessed for life-application, in my view. Creating affirmations and meditations from the written word where one can linger and reflect is more effective for long-term deepening of practice leading to spiritual success. This is a book for everyone.

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.” – Ghandi
