      I’ve been reading Chopra for years, but this is the first book of his I’ve underlined, highlighted, tagged pages with post-its, and hand-copied paragraphs into my journal. It brings much of his life work into one place, and it’s organized impeccably.

          Anyway. The subtitle of the book is Living from the Source of Lasting Happiness, and I must say he directly addresses these Big Issues. He’s got some awesome ideas for living a more effortless yet powerful life - and it’s going to be a book I re-read a lot.

          For instance, something he’s said in many of his books but somehow stood out for me here:

          “...if we want something to become our life experience, then we put our attention on it. If we don’t want something to become our life experience, we take our attention away from it...” (p. 106)

          At the end of each chapter he recaps the main points, which I find really helpful. If you‘re a Deepak Chopra fan - or if you‘re just curious about him - this is a fabulous book.
