Written in the aftermath of 9 11, the book helps the reader cope with and understand anger, loss, death and tragedy Comprising two parts a discussion of the 9 11 experience in light of Chopra s teachings, and a 100 day guided affirmation the book is a quick read I found it to be too much focus on the events of 9 11, and less on the broader view of healing and transition It was an OK read, and one that may help when dealing with loss. Chopra writes about the days following 9 11 01 and how people asked him to help them He talks about how ournegative thoughts of fear, anger, sadness are illusions and by changing the thoughts, we change our own reality.The body holds the negative energy of these emotions unless you talk about them Other ways to release blocked energy in our bodies is with deep breathing, exercise, and meditation Deepak Chopra lists 100 affirmations Use one each of them for 100 days.I like reading and listen Chopra writes about the days following 9 11 01 and how people asked him to help them He talks about how ournegative thoughts of fear, anger, sadness are illusions and by changing the thoughts, we change our own reality.The body holds the negative energy of these emotions unless you talk about them Other ways to release blocked energy in our bodies is with deep breathing, exercise, and meditation Deepak Chopra lists 100 affirmations Use one each of them for 100 days.I like reading and listening to Chopra as his manner exudes an air of calm Also, his taking of wisdom from multiple religions is both interesting and hopeful The first half of this book explores our relationship to fear and suffering, especially around death and trauma, but the real value of it, to me, is in the second half, made up of 100 sequential affirmations and prayers that can be used as a roadmap to deeper understanding and greater peace. I didn t actually read one passage a day as instructed because I m bad at routines , but I read a few every few days often rereading at least one so the idea could sink in I really tried to savor this book and practice its messages It can be hard to focus on one aspect of the psyche, and even harder to carry the message with you all day when there are so many other messages being thrown at us each day.It begins with the author s son s account of the events on 9 11, a huge tragedy that our w I didn t actually read one passage a day as instructed because I m bad at routines , but I read a few every few days often rereading at least one so the idea could sink in I really tried to savor this book and practice its messages It can be hard to focus on one aspect of the psyche, and even harder to carry the message with you all day when there are so many other messages being thrown at us each day.It begins with the author s son s account of the events on 9 11, a huge tragedy that our whole nation can relate to The nice thing about the passages themselves is how applicable they are to just about any circumstance involving pain and loss Most of the passages circle back to the existence of one s soul, so a reader needs to accept the possibility that the concept is real in order to enjoy this book As with many self help books, you have to take the useful with the less than useful I appreciated the straightforward approach to dealing with painful feelings, and I think this book helped me to process those feelings in aneutral, less damaging way However, the author adds some prayers toward the end that don t fit in so well with the rest of the book No emotion isunwelcome than anxiety It arrives and refuses to leave Sigmund Freud Written soon after 9 11, Chopra gets to the heart of the wound in all of us and shows us how to heal My daughter, Sarah, gave me this book, and I am deeply appreciative to her There are 100 days of affirmations in the back of the book. This book has made me realize how little I knew of the ego and it s identity.Fantastic insight into your deeper self I would recommend this book to anyone trying to understand themselves. Go ahead and sneer because it is Deepak Chopra if you want to But I found this book to be a great help in dealing with sadness and loss. This little book was written just after 9 11 so that theme pervades the writing, however it s message has broad applicability It is just about 100 pages of commentary and 100 pages of daily meditations It would be usefuly to anyone who has experienced great fear or suffering all of us I have yet to complete all of the meditations but they seem quite useful, somethan others. ^DOWNLOAD KINDLE ↾ The Deeper Wound: Recovering the Soul from Fear and Suffering ⇝ The author of How to Know God provides help for healing deep trauma whenever it arises so we may find peace in ourselves and in our worldTerror came from the sky, and afterward the world would never be the same September , defined tragedy for a generation On that day Deepak Chopra found himself driving from city to city, meeting thousands of people who begged for meaning and solace in the face of suffering In response he has written The Deeper Wound, offering a way of healing as a memorial to the thousands of victims who perishedThe opening section, In the Face of Tragedy, defines suffering as the pain that threatens to make life meaningless When our deepest needs go unfulfilled, suffering begins We begin to heal when we go beyond personal anger and fear to a realization of our true self, the self that was never afraid and can never be woundedThe true self contains the light that no darkness can attack Having described a path of awareness and compassion that leads to the light, the second half of The Deeper Wound takes us there through A Hundred Days of Healing, daily affirmations, exercises, insights, lessons, and questions each a step out of pain toward a higher reality We can become living memorials to tragedy by restoring the power of life, writes Deepak Chopra You are that life, you are that power Let us see if we can find the spark that will make the spiritual flame spring up Healing yourself comes in two stages first releasing the energy of suffering, then replacing it with the soul s energy It is a gentle and fragile path, very much like holding on to a thread as it leads you from step to stepIf you take the time to listen to the voice of silence, you will be astonished at the power you have at your command, however long that power has been overlookedA portion of the proceeds earned by the author and publisher from the sale of this book will be donated to the Red Cross to aid in humanitarian relief efforts around the world
