I love that the author starts the introduction with basically saying you can take these ideas or leave them, and then by explaining that those already on the road to enlightenment will be more likely to get it.
He is apologetic about having a more Christian perspective, but his explanations are deeply Buddhist at times, Hindu, Tao and common sense at others. I found no bias in his writing and lots of connections between the major philosophies.
The definition of ego is astonishing and really helped me dig deeper into awareness. The pain body chapter is one of the most practical explanation on forgiveness I have read to date.
Everything about this book challenged my way of thinking and perceiving and moved me closer to being.
It is beautifully written and the concepts are well defined and illustrated, without the spoon feeding or vagueness I’ve sometimes encountered in books of this type.
Apparently, I was supposed to read The Power of Now first… as the author expresses through acceptance, things happen when they are supposed to. Embrace what is with you now.
Ps: I’m starting The Power of Now next.
Blessings and good reading!
