A Deepak Chopra Companion: Illuminations on Health and Human Consciousness – Deepak Chopra

Amazon Synopsis: Deepak Chopra, M.D., has researched, written, and lectured on a vast range of subjects--from Ayurvedic medicine to meditation, karma to creation, purpose to potential--all from the perspective of a physician, endocrinologist, and healer. He has been a pioneer in the field of mind body medicine and is the best-selling author of twenty books, including Ageless Body, Timeless Mind and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.

In A Deepak Chopra Companion, Leon Nacson, a longtime friend and colleague of Dr. Chopra, presents an accessible survey of his works, from the most basic concepts of mind body medicine to the most rewarding paths of spiritual growth. Based on their dialogues over the years, A Deepak Chopra Companion answers the questions readers themselves would ask Dr. Chopra if they had the opportunity. For instance: What am I doing here? Who am I? Why is meditation so important? And what is the connection between intention and desire?  The result is a book that covers all the fundamental points that lie at the heart of Dr. Chopra's views on healing and the exploration of human consciousness.

 

Change Your Thoughts - Change Your Life – Wayne Dyer 2009

Amazon Synopsis: Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.

In this book, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has reviewed hundreds of translations of the Tao Te Ching and has written 81 distinct essays on how to apply the ancient wisdom of Lao-tzu to today’s modern world. This work contains the entire 81 verses of the Tao, compiled from Wayne’s researching of 10 of the most well-respected translations of text that have survived for more than 25 centuries. Each chapter is designed for actually living the Tao or the Great Way today. Some of the chapter titles are “Living with Flexibility,” “Living Without Enemies,” and “Living by Letting Go.” Each of the 81 brief chapters focuses on living the Tao and concludes with a section called “Doing the Tao Now.”

Wayne spent one entire year reading, researching, and meditating on Lao-tzu’s messages, practicing them each day and ultimately writing down these essays as he felt Lao-tzu wanted you to know them.

This is a work to be read slowly, one essay a day. As Wayne says, “This is a book that will forever change the way you look at your life, and the result will be that you’ll live in a new world aligned with nature. Writing this book changed me forever, too. I now live in accord with the natural world and feel the greatest sense of peace I’ve ever experienced. I’m so proud to present this interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, and offer the same opportunity for change that it has brought me.”

 

The Conscious Mind: In Search of a Fundamental Theory - David J. Chalmers 1997

Amazon Synopsis: What is consciousness? How do physical processes in the brain give rise to the self-aware mind and to feelings as profoundly varied as love or hate, aesthetic pleasure or spiritual yearning? These questions today are among the most hotly debated issues among scientists and philosophers, and we have seen in recent years superb volumes by such eminent figures as Francis Crick, Daniel C. Dennett, Gerald Edelman, and Roger Penrose, all firing volleys in what has come to be called the consciousness wars. Now, in The Conscious Mind, philosopher David J. Chalmers offers a cogent analysis of this heated debate as he unveils a major new theory of consciousness, one that rejects the prevailing reductionist trend of science, while offering provocative insights into the relationship between mind and brain.

Writing in a rigorous, thought-provoking style, the author takes us on a far-reaching tour through the philosophical ramifications of consciousness. Chalmers convincingly reveals how contemporary cognitive science and neurobiology have failed to explain how and why mental events emerge from physiological occurrences in the brain. He proposes instead that conscious experience must be understood in an entirely new light--as an irreducible entity (similar to such physical properties as time, mass, and space) that exists at a fundamental level and cannot be understood as the sum of its parts. And after suggesting some intriguing possibilities about the structure and laws of conscious experience, he details how his unique reinterpretation of the mind could be the focus of a new science.

Throughout the book, Chalmers provides fascinating thought experiments that trenchantly illustrate his ideas. For example, in exploring the notion that consciousness could be experienced by machines as well as humans, Chalmers asks us to imagine a thinking brain in which neurons are slowly replaced by silicon chips that precisely duplicate their functions--as the neurons are replaced, will consciousness gradually fade away? The book also features thoughtful discussions of how the author's theories might be practically applied to subjects as diverse as artificial intelligence and the interpretation of quantum mechanics.

All of us have pondered the nature and meaning of consciousness. Engaging and penetrating, The Conscious Mind adds a fresh new perspective to the subject that is sure to spark debate about our understanding of the mind for years to come.

 

The Consciousness of the Atom - Alice A. Bailey 2008

Synopsis: This book was delivered as a series of weekly lectures in 1921 and 1922, and published later in 1922. Bailey, even at this point in her career, shows a mature grasp of esoteric issues, and deftly brings in scientific concepts such as radioactivity and the fourth dimension. Unlike some other authors of this genre, she invokes leading-edge science when it moves the argument ahead, not to impress the reader with her erudition, or to baffle the audience with irrelevant facts.

She sees the universe as alive at all scales of existence. While the comparison of an atom to a solar system no longer holds true, her vision of how consciousness evolves even in the micro-scale and macro-scale, and how that is mirrored in the tripartate human being, is a lucid explanation of an occult world-view expressed by many other thinkers.

Spirit Communication: The Soul’s Path – Kevin Ryerson and Stephanie Harolde 1989

Publisher's Weekly: Ryerson, a California medium, or trance channeler, claims to be the outlet through which the following spirit-entities speak: John, an apostle of Jesus; Aton-Re, adviser to Egyptian pharaoh Akhnaton; a Haitian herbalist named Obadiah; Tom MacPherson, an Irish pickpocket from Shakespearean England; oriental teacher Japu; et al. Their voices, as recorded in this hodgepodge, sound remarkably alike as they expound on love, the soul, soul mates, the law of karma, achieving an androgynous personality, past lives and so forth. With an assist form freelancer Harolde, Ryerson, who figures prominently in Shirley MacLaine's books, describes the mechanics of mediumship and outlines a theory of mind that accentuates the superconscious. His informally presented philosophy is a smorgasbord that draws freely from such sources as Buddhism, Edgar Cayce, Jung, the legend of Atlantis and Judeo-Christian tradition.

Following the success of this work, Dr. Murphy lectured to thousands of people around the world, and millions tuned in to his daily radio program. In his lectures, he pointed out how real people have radically improved their lives by applying specific aspects of his concepts.

Subliminal: How Your Unconscious Mind Rules Your Behavior - Leonard Mlodinow

Amazon Synopsis: Leonard Mlodinow, the best-selling author of The Drunkard’s Walk and coauthor of The Grand Design (with Stephen Hawking), gives us a startling and eye-opening examination of how the unconscious mind shapes our experience of the world and how, for instance, we often misperceive our relationships with family, friends, and business associates, misunderstand the reasons for our investment decisions, and misremember important events.

Your preference in politicians, the amount you tip your waiter—all judgments and perceptions reflect the workings of our mind on two levels: the conscious, of which we are aware, and the unconscious, which is hidden from us. The latter has long been the subject of speculation, but over the past two decades researchers have developed remarkable new tools for probing the hidden, or subliminal, workings of the mind. The result of this explosion of research is a new science of the unconscious and a sea change in our understanding of how the subliminal mind affects the way we live.

Employing his trademark wit and lucid, accessible explanations of the most obscure scientific subjects, Leonard Mlodinow takes us on a tour of this research, unraveling the complexities of the subliminal self and increasing our understanding of how the human mind works and how we interact with friends, strangers, spouses, and coworkers. In the process he changes our view of ourselves and the world around us.

 

TNT: The Power Within You - Claude M. Bristol 1974

Amazon Synopsis: This stuff is hard to articulate but Claude does a wonderful job of doing so. If you've experienced this process in action you know what he is talking about but if you haven't it sounds a little far fetched. You can't just think I want a million dollars and have it show up, it's very intense and you have to focus with a great deal of intensity with no doubt in your mind but it does work. There are a lot of books on this subject from Joseph Murphy, Florence Scovel Shinn etc. and they are all along the same lines. I like this one because the authors passion for the subject comes through loud and clear which makes reading the book a pleasure.
