The Deeper Wound
Following the events in New York in early September 2001, Deepak Chopra addresses the feelings that have come out of them for all of us: fear, the meaning of death and how to find you "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, it 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.
