The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire

Chopra distinguishes in this book three levels of existence:

  • Physical or material – the visible universe
  • Quantum – everything consisting of information and energy not perceived by the five senses.
  • Nonlocal or spiritual domain – intelligence of consciousness.

He warns, that humans lose their “sense of connectedness in a welter of concerns about everyday worries” and tells us that the “universe is a huge reflection of ourselves in our own consciousness”. He believes that the universe is the “Soul of all Things”.

He compares the spiritual domain with the ocean and the physical level with the wave.

He tells us that we have to “dive past the ego, past the limitations of the mind that harness us to events and outcomes in the physical world”.

He believes in KarmaCompare with Theosophy under Philosophy, that our individual souls are conditioned by experience and that through the memory of past experience our souls influence our choices and interpretation in life.

In his words, we are what our deepest desire is. As is our desire, so is our intention. As is our intention, so is our will. As is our will, so is our deed and as is our deed, so is our destiny.

The nonlocal intention is in his eyes always evolutionary and therefore moving in the direction of harmonious interactions that serve the longer good.

When self-concern departs, nonlocal intelligence enters.

The answer lies in paying attention to the clues provided by the nonlocal mind. Coincidences are messages. They are clues from God to break out of our familiar patterns of thinking.

In this book he also talks about archetypes, a psychological concept originally proposed by Carl JungSee also Memories, Dreams, Reflections under Psychology, that play an  important role in astrology as well.
