One might think Dr.
Chopra, New Age guru and best-selling self-help author, has
his hands full explaining how we can all have ageless bodies
and timeless minds, but apparently he has enough spare moments
to dabble in fiction. He has the gift to teach and explain what
we all often ponder. Life, happiness, and living healthy and
longer and truly enjoying it. A master in the art of living
life. His insights has helped millions and can help you too.
Way of the Wizard: Twenty Spiritual Lessons in Creating the
Life You Want.
Chopra is big. His message about attaining joy and fulfillment
by recognizing the mind-body connection has struck a chord that's
reverberated beyond New Agers into the general public. Still,
he basically has only one message, leaving him no choice but
to try to jazz it up with each successive book. Chopra has ventured
into the world of fiction with mixed results. This time, he
blends a bit of folklore into his "lessons" about
20 principles for reintroducing magic into one's life. Invoking
the Camelot legends and using Arthur and Merlin (also the focus
of his novel, The Return of Merlin) as metaphors for
the eternal seeker and inner wisdom, Chopra gives readers the
tools to find the enchantment in their own lives.
Return of Merlin
He's taken on a daunting task for himself: re-creating the Camelot
legend in modern dress and decorating it with New Age messages
about reincarnation, redemption, and a reminder that we are
all magical creatures. That's a lot for one book to take on,
and Merlin often crumbles under the weight of its thematic
baggage. That's too bad, because the tale itself, set mostly
in modern England, does have a magical quality as it portrays
Merlin and Mordred, each assisted by a revolving cast of characters,
fighting for control of our outer and inner worlds. Some pages
are riveting and others numbing, suggesting that part of the
problem lies in the editing. It's not a good sign when a novel
comes with a key (in this case, instructions on how to understand
the symbolism); worse, when an author feels burdened to tell
us that his story "is meant to be understood on many levels,"
it's a sure bet that the book is in danger of not being understood
on any level.
