About the author

Editorial Reviews

From the publishers:

Tong is terrific! He debunks the buzz around popular self-help authors, claiming that the self cannot be the agent of change on its own behalf. Since it is the soul that experiences profound change, the self is but a step-child; it may be the last to know things are different. However, the soul cannot change on its own. It needs guidance.

Secrets of Human Transformation:
Being Real, Part 1

by Chris Tong, Ph.D.

Practical Spirituality Series, Book 2
57 pages
Date Published: May 2000
ISBN: 0717354210

The impulse to change springs out of dissatisfaction and unhappiness. But what change is actually possible? And what bearing do approaches for change actually have on our happiness? In this book we will examine a variety of approaches to transformation, from Sigmund Freud’s psychotherapy, to Stephen Covey’s “7 Habits”, to the self-transcending God-Realization of the great Spiritual Masters. We will see how how such approaches vary in their presumptions about the full depth of the human being (from animal-like to Divine); the faculties available to a human being (including “higher” faculties); the natural (or Divine) laws or principles with which human beings must be aligned; how the heat that arises in the friction between old and new habits is managed or endured; and what agents of transformation are available to assist in the process of transformation (from therapists to Spiritual Masters).

We will conclude that True Happiness is a matter of transcending the sense of being a separate self, and being restored first to Communion with, and ultimately Identification with God. This is a Spiritual and ultimately Divine matter that requires the unrelenting transmission of Divine Grace only provided by the Spiritual Master.
