What would you do if you were sitting quietly in your living room when two mysterious strangers appeared from out of nowhere-and then told you they were 'ascended masters' who had come to reveal some shocking secrets of existence and teach you the miraculous powers of advanced forgiveness? Would you call the cops? Call a psychiatrist? Call out for pizza? When two such teachers appeared before Gary Renard in 1992, he chose to listen to them (and ask a lot of questions). The result is this startling book: an extraordinary record of 17 mind bending conversations that took place over nearly a decade, reorienting the author's life and giving the world an uncompromising introduction to a spiritual teaching destined to change human more

Without the overview and perpective that 'Disappearance of the Universe' (DOU) gives I doubt that I would have persevered with A Course in Miracles (ACIM). There is no doubt in my mind that ACIM is the one book we should all study but DOU helps make sense of it in an easier to read format. I am very grateful for DOU and would highly recommend more

"I read this book with ears that hear. There is a very accessible overview of some of the principles of A Course in Miracles in ways that might be understood. If you can stomach the pseudo cool posturing and language of the author. But that kind of understanding may very well delay the understanding that the course itself initiates. 'The world' as use in A Course in Miracles, is the world of definitions and concepts that you made up - and that you give preference to, over and above direct living experience. The Living World is the Living Word. The movement and extension of Be-ing. It is the valuing of private control and the attempt to do it that will disappear. ACIM promotes the capacity to see and be the evidence of love. ACIMism is trying to 'do' it. Love does it. There is nothing you need to understand to make love welcome except the realisation that your attempt to understand - in your terms - keeps love out! It isnt that many of the ideas in Gary's book are not right - for some of it is. But it does not have the power of Presence of wholeness - of inegrity, of realisation. It is entertainment. Spirit can use anything as a vehicle if it is the one that you allow it to reach you. Dont identify with or against the book. Obtain identity from God - directly, in the un knowingness. You are Living Movement. As the shop in Aylsham proclaims: "Concept curtains and blinds" In Peace Brian"show more
