The Deeper Wound

Front Cover
Ebury Publishing, Jan 26, 2010 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 208 pages

Following the terrorist attack in New York on September 11, Deepak Chopra addresses the feelings it caused in all of us: fear, the meaning of death and how to find your "higher self" under catastrophic circumstances. The sort of questions he asks are: is there a deep wound at the heart of humanity? Will revenge salve this wound or aggravate it? He also comments "if you and I are having a single thought of violence or hatred against anyone in the world at this moment, we are contributing to the wounding of the world."

Although this book has grown out of a tragedy that has affected us all, its spiritual message is also of general application in situations where one might be feeling extremely vulnerable, frighteningly angry, deeply sad and trying to make sense of a terrible situation.

I read this because the name DEEPAK CHOPRA was embibed onto it. This book fails to impress an average person like me as it revolves around the incident September 2001. He might have taken other examples as well to highlight the traumatized situation just not getting to much focussed on NEW YORK only. Overall message was very clear just browsing initial pages.
Compilation was good and so as the message. Most of the concepts were very same and nothing new was there in subsequent chapters. Overall good attempt to uplift the distressed and lost folks.
