The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success (book review)

By

screen-shot-2016-12-14-at-3-02-04-pmThis powerful little book contains the essence of Deepak Chopra’s teaching.  At only 115 pages it’s a quick read divided into short chapters titled:

  • The Law of Pure Potentiality
  • The Law of Giving and Receiving
  • The Law of Karma or Cause and Effect
  • The Law of Least Effort
  • The Law of Intention and Desire
  • The Law of Detachment
  • The Law of Dharma or Purpose in Life
I think this is a great book for small group study.  Sometimes in book groups there is so much material to cover in a limited time.  This book is not like that – instead it features short wisdom sayings that are ripe for group discussion.  Such as:
  • “Accept people, situations, and events as they are, not a you wish they were, in this moment” (in the Law of Least Effort chapter)
  • “Whatever we put our attention on grows stronger in our life, whatever we take our attention away from withers and disappears.” (in the Law of Intention and Desire chapter)
  • “The Law of Detachment does not interfere with goal setting.  We still have the intention of going in a certain direction, but between point A and point B there are infinite possibilities.” (in the Law of Detachment chapter)
I was part of a small group that discussed this book one chapter each week.  The material really struck a chord with my group as members participated in deep and meaningful sharing from their own lives.

I’ve heard Deepak speak in person a couple of times, and I have read a few of his other books.  At times he can be very deep.  I found the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success easy to understand with practical suggestions to implement in my life.
