"By opening this Handbook for wise thinking and living, you open the door to your new identity, because across the threshold there is only the lightness of Being, and infinity in all directions."—Deepak Chopra

In The Wisdom Principles, Dr. Ervin Laszlo, authority in the fields of new science, consciousness, and spirituality, bridges the chasm between our understanding of science and the truths of spirituality, bringing an essential and timely message of wisdom to the world. Laszlo offers readers principles of empowerment that will guide the choices they make for years to come and will allow them to move confidently toward a better future.

This book is the distillation of Laszlo’s sixty plus years spent delving into the mysteries of science and a lifetime of keen spiritual insight. The nuggets of timely wisdom offered in The Wisdom Principles, and the timeless truths revealed on its pages, are a precious resource for wise thinking and living. As we stand at a crossroads of civilization there has never been a greater need for them than today. Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and Gregg Braden are among the renowned thought-leaders who lend their voices to Laszlo’s work, framing the book and underscoring the power of its life-changing principles.

Praise for The Wisdom Principles

"Relish the writer’s thoughts and words but at the same time be open and willing to meet yourself. Wisdom can inspire you when it belongs to someone else; it can transform you only through direct experience. By opening this Handbook for Our Time, you open the door to your new identity, because across the threshold there is only the lightness of Being, and infinity in all directions."—Deepak Chopra

"One of the wisest among us has written a stellar book on wisdom. What is revealed is astonishing in its depth and relevance. This luminous work provides the missing piece to counter the missteps of our time and open the reader to serious reflection and potent action."—Jean Houston

"...if you have a genuine interest in the purpose of your life, and how to make life better for yourself, your loved ones, and all those whose lives you touch, you have put yourself in the right place with this book at just the right moment."—Neale Donald Walsch

"While knowledge is gained from outside, wisdom is brought forth from within. There are various levels of wisdom, but the highest wisdom is that which comes from the divine spark—the sacred source of our being. This new book by Ervin Laszlo will help restore the divine spark in the spirit of humanity."
