The 7 Golden Secrets To Knowing Your Higher Self  

by Dr. A.K. Selvarajah. Published By M. I. Resources Inc. 230 Pages.

This book fills an important gap. It is the ONLY book distilling the secret wisdom of the ages AND modern personal development techniques into seven understandable and practical steps YOU can use to contact the Higher Self. 

There have been many books on contacting your divine inner wisdom. However, few of them give you so many practical strategies to achieve this union. The emphasis is upon doing; bringing the Higher Self into your life through practicing these seven secrets. Also, it is not a "monks only" book, i.e. for the super-spiritual. The seven secrets can be used by anyone, no matter how busy.

In researching the book, Dr. Selvarajah delved into areas as diverse as Mysticism, Buddhism,  Mind-Body Science, Meditation, Esoteric Christianity, and even Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Indeed, it is the skillful interweaving of ancient teachings with modern personal development strategies that sets the book apart and makes it so powerful. 

As Dr. Selvarajah stresses, there is no ONE way to your Higher Self. Instead, there are many paths up the same mountain. With "The 7 Golden Secrets To Knowing Your Higher Self", you are given an excellent roadmap to the summit. You can choose the one that suits you, and pursue it at your own natural pace. This is a book that will grow with you, and that you will want to read many times to access its deep resources of wisdom. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

How To Know God

Deepak Chopra. Published by Harmony Books. 319 Pages.

In "How to Know God", Deepak Chopra does an excellent job of tackling one of the toughest subjects of all: communion with the Almighty!

 
Whilst this never really reads as a "How To" manual, it is nevertheless packed with fascinating metaphysical insights on a wide range of subjects. As ever, Dr. Chopra displays his wide knowledge of a whole variety of fields, ranging from Quantum Physics to the Rishis of Ancient India.
 
The basic proposition of the book is that we can only really know God through ourselves. Whilst this is generally true of ALL reality, it is particularly true of God. The level of spiritual development we have achieved will determine the kind of God we see and interact with. According to Chopra, there are seven key stages of spiritual growth, and thus seven "types" of God we will see. In ascending order of spiritual awareness, these are the God (1) the protector; (2) the almighty; (3)of peace; (4) the redeemer; (5) the creator; (6) of miracles; (7) of pure being.
 
In part, this explains why people's views on God differ so widely, and why nobody can agree as to what God is. The book is clearly argued, fascinating in its breath of insight, and takes the reader on a wild and exciting adventure into the heart of the Divine. Your views on God will never be the same again.
