Life in excess

Deepak Chopra has become famous for writing books. He is Indian, but works and lives in the US for many years now. Trained as a physician, he uniquely connects the west and east. He is mostly inspired by Hinduism. His book: “The seven spiritual laws of success” has given practical insights to live successfully.

The seven laws which are drawn up in his book are:
  1. The law of pure potentiality
  2. The law of giving
  3. The law of karma (or cause and effect)
  4. The law of least effort
  5. The law of intention and desire
  6. The law of detachment
  7. The law of “Dharma” or purpose in life
Volumes have been written about philosophy. As far as I’m concerned, this book stands out in two ways. Firstly it’s written accessibly. It is not a long book and the style of writing can be read by almost anyone easily. Secondly it doesn’t only describe the law and underlying philosophy. It also suggests how to implement it within your daily life at the end of each law. This way it is even easier to practice these laws in real life.

For short: worth reading!
