As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases.In The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents: Guiding Your Children to Success and Fulfillment, healer and philosopher Deepak Chopra follows up on his runaway bestseller, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, by extending and reinterpreting his spiritual laws for parents. "From the day your baby is born, you are a teacher of spirit," Chopra writes. "Look upon spirituality as a skill in living, since that is what it is. I believe in imparting these skills as early as possible by whatever means a child can understand." To meet this end, Chopra translates his own "laws" so that even the youngest child can comprehend them. For instance, Chopra's First Law, "The source of all creation is pure consciousness ... pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest," translates as "everything is possible." In his wise and deceptively simple program (focusing each day of the week on one of the seven laws), Chopra suggests ways for parents to teach children truly spiritual values by incorporating spiritual goals into family life. --Ericka LutzThe Seven Spiritual Laws of Success was a phenomenon that touched millions of lives. Its author, Deepak Chopra, received thousands of letters from parents who expressed the desire to convey the principles they had learned to their children, along with questions about how to do so.
The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents is Dr. Chopra’s answer to those parents who wish to raise children with values that satisfy spiritual needs as well as create the experience of abundance. Exploring specific ways to practice the Seven Spiritual Laws as a family, Chopra explains how to convey these laws to children, and how to embody them in age-specific activities each day.
The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents moves us beyond a focus on private triumphs and failures to experience the spiritual nature of communion with family, to share with those closest to us the infinite riches of innocence and love.
