You don't have to believe in God in order to experience God.
-- Deepak Chopra

The best-selling author of Ageless Body, Timeless Mind and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success has written his most ambitious and important work yet -- an exploration of the idea that everyone can have the direct experience of divinity. According to Chopra, the brain is hardwired to know God. The human nervous system has seven biological responses that correspond to seven levels of divine experience. These are shaped not by any one religion (they are shared by all), but by the brain's need to take an infinite, chaotic universe and find meaning in it. As we make sense of the swirling "quantum soup," we inevitably find the face of God. In this remarkable book Chopra shows us how. And along the way we delve into such mysteries as religious awakening, ecstasy, genius, telepathy, multiple personality, and clairvoyance -- all parts of the "mind field" that quantum physics discovered almost a hundred years ago. This invisible place, although it appears to be an empty void, is actually the womb of creation. Here God is our co-creator in the constant process of self-creation that is life itself. As we come to know God better, we gain direct access to healing, love, and miracles. How to Know God is Deepak Chopra's writing at its very best, an internationally celebrated blend of philosophy and science applied to the greatest subject of all. This is the quest each of us is on, whether we realize it or not. For, as Chopra writes, "God is our highest instinct to know ourselves." This book makes a dramatic and enduring contribution to that knowledge.
