by Charles Siebert


Against the backdrop of a tumbledown Brooklyn neighborhood, Charles Siebert, a native Brooklynite and longtime city-dweller, reflects upon the five months he has just spent at Wickerby, an old, collapsing log cabin in the woods of Canada. In vivid, lyrical prose, Siebert relates the events that prompted his sudden departure to Wickerby, and, while recounting the details of his isolated existence there, arrives at a series of stunningly original insights that explore and often explode the classic Romantic distinctions between city and country, man-made and natural.

"Outside my window, the city lights are taking hold now, the breeze-brushed, gently pulsating grid. Why is a cemented aggregate of homes arranged in a tall, tight cluster any further from nature than one wood home within the woods? Because it is so thoroughly man-made? But we wouldn't call the towering carpenter ant's nest that I found one day in Wickerby's collapsing southeast corner 'ant-made.' We are no less natural than the next creature except that thinking makes it seem so. There is no such thing as nature. Wickerby would remind me of this. There is just the earth and us, the name-callers, standing upon it, calling those places without us, nature."        Against the backdrop of a tumbledown Brooklyn neighborhood, Charles Siebert, a native Brooklynite and longtime city-dweller, reflects upon the five months he has just spent at Wickerby, an old, collapsing log cabin in the woods of Canada. In vivid, lyrical prose, Siebert relates the events that prompted his sudden departure to Wickerby, and, while recounting the details of his isolated existence there, arrives at a series of stunningly original insights that explore and often explode the classic Romantic distinctions between city and country, man-made and natural. Along the way, the book's episodic, wide-ranging narrative takes us from Brooklyn's rooftops, where "pigeon mumblers" chase their flocks into the sky, to Albert, Wickerby's reclusive caretaker who pilfers the cabin's artifacts for his own yard sales.        In what emerges as a refreshing subversion of the typical log cabin book, this beautifully composed account of a journey away from the city ultimately allows us to view the city anew: not as the traditional antagonist of the natural world, but as a logical and inevitable outgrowth of that world, an entity as wondrous and awe-inspiring as anything found in nature.

Long ago I was in a traumatic situation that caused me to close up and avoid love. I remembered reading this book which helped me years ago but then decided (after much procrastination) to finally order the book a second time.

I have something called PTSD that also contributed to my cold heartedness. If you are looking for something to help HEAL the heart and become open to love once again, this book is for you.

I also got this book because I needed a break from reference books, something I'm prone to buying. This book actually tells stories on love and encourages the welcoming of love. Not only that, but it also opens the mind and reminds you of what love truly is. Something I believe I had forgotten over time or possibly dismissed as setting myself up into vulnerability in order to get hurt. Not so.

I highly recommend this book to everyone, particularly those who have lacked the ability to acknowledge their higher self and the ability to love.

I "borrowed" this book in hard copy from my parents 9 years ago, and it's been read so often I've wrecked it lol. So, I bought the Kindle version. I can't speak highly enough about this book. When I feel insecure, when relationships seems hard, I re-read this and remember the first truth every newborn knows: I am completely loved, and completely lovable.

If you want to learn how to fall in love with yourself (not in an ego way) then read this gem. It is the one experience everyone should have.

I have this book and find it to be one of the most wonderful approaches to explaining the loss of authentic love in our lives. This might be Deepak Chopra's best book yet and his brilliant insights into the notion of romantic love as one that's grounded in spirit, are wonderful. It goes a long way in explaining where love has fallen apart in our Western Tradition--we've limited our own understanding of the complexities of love and we've failed to see its connection to spirit. I highly recommend it for everyone who wants to better understand love as a theory and a critical (pun intended) practice.

However, I cannot recommend the service provided by Amazon and its vendor when I placed a second order for the book. After my order was placed (and charged to my credit card), I was notified that it would not ship for about two weeks. Then, I was told that I could not change my order. Indeed, I did change it by writing to the vendor and asking to have it canceled. Turns out, she (vendor) was able to ship the book sooner, and, in fact, was on her way to ship it when she discovered my email message. But, her tone with me in her email response was so offensive, that I asked her to cancel my order, remove the charge from my card;and recommended that she have a discussion with Amazon.

Clearly the two vendors were giving out conflicting information. I think, however, that what will remain with me is her tone in her message. I was so offended that I will not order from this vendor
again and I extend my offense to Amazon as well. No customer should have to endure this amount of grief with a vendor for reasons beyond his/her control. Amazon and Ginger: Get it together here. There are other booksellers on the internet and the competition is pretty fierce.

This is the first book that I've read of Deepak Chopra's. I've heard great things about his work and was excited to delve into this one. I appreciated Chopra's insight into the human heart and emotions. The stories he uses to highlight his points were useful, comical, and educational at certain times. I could certainly see myself in a lot of his characters.

At times, I found his writing to be quite cerebral, littered with theory. I found myself having to read certain chapters over again to feel like I was getting the true sense of what he was trying to get across. It's certainly not a sit back and read at the beach type of read for me... but rather a text that I felt compelled to delve into and study.

"Loving another person is not separate from loving God. One is a single wave, the other is the ocean." ~ Deepak Chopra

In "The Path to Love," Deepak Chopra blends modern day wisdom with ancient insight and myths. This is a reflective study of love's many stages (from romantic love to spiritual love) and as Deepak reveals the many nuances he also explains the spiritual goal of life. This book uncovers the reasons love is healing while anger and hate can be fatal.

There are quite a few case studies and the book is structured around stories of people struggling with everything from marital issues to questions about reality itself. Deepak acts as a psychologist who is solving issues one after the other. His clients have breakthroughs and each conversation reveals something new.

"Love and spirit are forming a connection every time you meditate on the heart, starting with the first time." ~ Deepak Chopra

For the most part this book reads like a comforting conversation with a trusted friend. There are instructions for a heart meditation. Then, a few questionnaires are included for your enlightenment. While this is not technically a workbook, it could be said that the contents of the book will change you as you answer the questions and discover hidden secrets about yourself.
