This book has some useful insights, but they are buried among a lot of vague mysticism and nonsense.

For instance, there is some truth in this:

"..if you have guilt, fear and insecurity over money, or success or anything else then these are reflections of guilt, fear and insecurity as basic aspects of your personality. No amount of money or success will solve these basic problems..."

One has only to look at Charlie Sheen or Lindsay Lohan to see that material goods will not solve deep psychological

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success is a labelled as one hour of wisdom, a pocketbook guide to fulfilling your dreams. It is written by world-renowned author, Deepak Chopra. This little book may be small but it is filled with a lot of good common sense wisdom.

The work is divided into seven section, one chapter for each of the seven spiritual laws of success: The Law of Pure Potentiality, The Law of Giving and Receiving, The Law of Karma, The Law of Least Effort, The Law of Intention and Desire,

Very disappointing. I mean, it's Deepak Chopra. Gotta love him, right? Turns out, not so much.

I agree with the laws he suggests. But they're cloaked in such hooey and psychobabble that I gagged. Why not just say that it's important to spend part of every day in stillness in order to connect with our inner selves and break free of the material world/rat race, rather than going on and on about our mystical connections to the universe?

It seemed to be very much pandering to Westerners who want to fe

I resisted Deepak Chopra for many years until now, for no really good reason. Perhaps it's got something to do with The Love Guru (which I did not like) poking fun at new age cliches. But I needed an audio book for the commute and wasn't sure what to go with so I opted for something short. This was 90 minutes, read by the author and irresistibly "enlightening". So much so that I stayed with it and heard it over and over several times. I hope it sunk in. The really great thing about this book is ...more

I've been reading this book for a few weeks. It's somewhat more complex and requires time to unravel and let the concepts sink in. It's definitely readable, I have just had to read one chapter at a time and let the "laws" sink in one at a time before exploring the next. It shifts the thinking about the universe and our place in it. Rather than approach us as "stardust" or inconsequential, it challenges the individual to see that we are the center of OUR universe and we have to deliberately creat ...more

I am figuring lots m'comrade.

I often thought that the life lived in solitude is the best energy a fate can give, but I was very wrong. Wrong.

Solitude is necessary as showering is, but it doesn't mean that we shower all day.

Happiness is the bliss of all our days. Even our beloved Aristotle, Plato and Socrates conquered such a thought.

Without reading into these men, I knew this before hand, and now, this read made me feel spectacular.

It helped me to realize that I have a whole energy of a lifetim

This is the first book I ever read by Deepak Chopra.

How I found this book was one day, outside of my apartment in San Jose, California, there was a very nice side table with a little drawer in front, abandoned at the sidewalk. I looked around, and it appeared that someone had put it there to get rid of it. I was looking for a small table as a meditation table, so cleaned it up and took it inside.

Through three moves, through two states, this little table wound up going between Washington, Oregon

This book changed my life. It found me at the perfect time and I've been reading it almost daily since then. It shifted me from viewing uncertainty as something unsettling to a gift - the law of potentiality. "Everything is as it should be" has become my mantra. Even after loosing my home and most of my possessions to a flood, I had faith that it was a blessing in disguise. It was. Each of the laws has lifted me to a better place, and more peaceful perspective. When I read the book, I could feel ...more

Terrific book! An amazing friend of mine bought the pocket book version for me and I've referred to it every day. You can literally breeze through it in under one hour flat, and at the end of each "law", Deepak sums up everything he talked about, which makes skimming super easy and quick. Every time I look back and remind myself on what to practice everyday, I gain a great sense of calmness and relaxation knowing that these laws are easy to follow and extremely beneficial in yours and other peop ...more

This is the one book I revisit time and time again. I downloaded it from itunes and listen to it on my commute. I would recommend the audio version. Deepak's voice is very soothing, there's not too much heavy content, and the audio makes it easy to jump back/forwards to concentrate on certain spiritual laws.

A friend of my parents suggested I read this book while I was home for Christmas after she heard about my work situation. She suggested that I pick up the book immediately because I was in the "right frame of mind." This book reminds us of the importance of meditation, of being a good person and karma but it certainly was not what I was looking to read in order to address my work situation and to get through each day. Had I reminded myself of how important other things are as compared to work, t ...more

What really helped me about this book was Deepak's "universal meditation" thing at the end where he asks everyone to focus on a specific spiritual law on a specific day. So for about a year, I did this. Sunday, being conscious of the Law of Pure Potentiality, for instance. This practice helped me to be more centered and aware of synchronicities. I also really appreciated life alot when I was in this practice. I don't know why I'm no longer doing this...

Other than that, this book is pretty slim

Chopra is a little overly flowy in his language, but he had some good points that made sense. It's difficult from a western point of view to really appreciate an eastern point of view, but i'm trying to adjust my mindset. Some of his laws seem above my head, but I've already applied one or two to my life and they've worked beautifully. He has some helpful, practical ways at the end of each chapter to make them work in your life. Thought-provoking stuff.

Read the book at a crucial time in my professional life.Finished the book in a day over three sittings.Planning to read it again several more times as this is not a book that we read and forget.To derive full benefit of all the seven laws described in the book we need to practice observing them on every day of the week in such a way that we start with the first law on sunday and finish with the seventh law on the saturday.

Reading this book on the cusp of a brand new year has me inspired, hopeful, and eager for twenty-twelve. By introducing the essence of each spiritual law and simple steps for living the laws, Chopra presents a most compelling manifesto to creating a life full of happiness, joy, and abundance...everything I intend to enjoy in the new year.

A practical guide without any practicals!!!“A practical guide to the fulfillment of your dreams” – this is what the cover page says.

I received one of Deepak's book as a gift from my manager back in 2007 and since then, I have been following his work as much as I possibly can. The seven spiritual laws of success is a great book, The lessons learnt are so dear. If you ever struggled in understanding Galatians 5:22, this is the additional book that will drive the lessons home

I can only speak from a personal stand point , but for me, I loved this book/ audio book. Even if you're religious, it does not conflict with any of your beliefs, although, to let you know, I think some of what is said is mentioned in the bible. It's like a how to to change and go to with living a certain way. As he breaks down each law, he makes you think, reflect and look at you and the way you are living your life. It's not a how to get rich and money book, but a how to get rich with life, an ...more

It started with a friend mentioning the book and asking me to give it a look. I responded by a cock of the head and said, "I hate these Guidlines to Life sorts. What would any man, sitting on the other side of the globe, know about my petty problems and how I can solve them?"
He laughed and replied, "You're judgmental. Read it."

And when I did, I discovered it to be a startling experience. After each law, I put down the book and pondered over it - what it said, how much truth it held, how much bli

YOU ARE ALREADY SUCCESSFUL!

Seven Spiritual Laws is one of my all time favorites.

I loved this book. It took me some time to truly comprehend the depth of Deepak’s teachings. I finally got it! This book is filled with ancient wisdom; quantum thought and simple steps one can apply right away.

My first read was in 1995. It is a quick read with only 111 pages, a requirement while I was still in Chinese medical school. I loved the concept of creating wealth through effortless thought and that one could

1. This book is about self exploration and self growth. It is about learning the kind of power that's within yourself.

2. The main ideas are learning the principles that nature uses to create everything in material existence- everything we can see, hear, smell, taste or touch.

Had I read this book any more than a few months earlier I wouldn't have been able to digest its messages.
