The Deeper Wound - Recovering the Soul From Fear & Suffering by Deepak Chopra

On the Back of the Book
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 world.

Tragedy can come to thousands, out of the blue, from a single act of malice that may affect a whole generation. Or it can appear in just one person's life, yet cause the same intensity of agony. 

When extreme fear and despair overcome us, it is natural to long for meaning and solace in the face of suffering. In The Deeper Wound, Deepak Chopra offers us a way to heal when everything seems to be falling apart. 

'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.'

Extra Information
The 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. It begins 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 wounded. The 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 towards a higher reality.

    A Masterpiece of a Book

    Posted by Greta on 28th Feb 2006

    In this book, the well know author Deepak Chopra has attempted to tackle  some of the really big questions that have always troubled human beings. As always, he writes very much from the heart, and includes personal anecdotes and insights to illustrate what he says. What are the really big questions? The one that springs to mind is – what is the meaning of Life, but of course when Chopra is being Chopra, he goes back a step from that question, and he looks at the roots of our fears about dying.  His premise is that we must always come to terms with death (and our feelings about it) to truly be alive.  In doing so, he says, we can 'recover the soul from fear and suffering'.  Even if we are not afraid of death and do not feel threatened by it as such, there is much here that is thought provoking and useful, within daily meditation.  Although there are many such guide books,  this one is slightly differently angled.

    He includes a series of affirmations, so that these challenges can be approached in a systematic way. He also allows his reader  an incredible sense of time and space, and also the possibility that all these huge issues can be tackled, and overcome, by everybody.  The secret is in taking the approach at your own individual pace, and Chopra as always is there to guide us through each step and to help us find our own considered pace.  Chopra has written a great deal over the years and will be familiar to  many readers, but for me, this is possibly his finest work. A masterpiece.
