The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Book Review

The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence
The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire. Deepak Chopra. New York: Harmony Books, 2003. 302 pp

Deepak Chopra’s, The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire, is not a new book. It was, after all, published in 2003. But if you have never read this book, its concepts may be refreshingly new to you.

You see, Chopra takes an old and very mystical theme—that of coincidence—and shows you how to read these signs from the universe that will inevitably (if you are alert) lead you to fulfill your life’s purpose.

But (and this is the really exciting part) you don’t have to sit passively by and wait for messages from the Universe, also called coincidences or synchronicities, to come to you. Rather, you can summon them to you.


Chopra describes a two-pronged approach:

1. Attention – Paying attention to coincidences attracts more coincidences.

2. Intention – When you experience a coincidence, ask “what does this mean?” You don’t have to struggle to find the meaning, either. As soon as you ask, the Universe will happily (and usually swiftly) provide it.

I can personally vouch for the principle of attention. For the past several years, I have noticed that the minute I pay attention to coincidence, the more coincidences I experience. What I was lacking, however, was a way to decode these mystical signs. Deepak Chopra’s The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire has shown me a way to decode these messages that I intend to put to immediate use.

But that’s not all…

Chopra also shows you how to determine what he calls your synchrondestiny, or life’s purpose, by using meditation, archetypes, mantras, and sutras. He concludes The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire with 7 principles of sychrondestiny along with a daily practice that will bring you closer to your spiritual essence and toward discovering your life’s purpose.

In case you couldn’t tell, I am excited and impressed by this book. The information it contains is accessible to both the experience spiritual seeker and the novice alike. If you want to learn to work with coincidences to discover your life’s purpose, buy The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire today!
