  • "An Interview with Campbell & Moon"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is a short (17 min) interview with Jack Campbell and Elizabeth Moon. I have listened to Campbell Lost Fleet series and am now listening to JAG in Space and have enjoyed them. So I was interested in hearing more about him and his writing. I had never heard of Elizabeth Moon is was intrigued by her. Apparently she was in the U.S. Marines and writes fantasy as well as military Sci Fi. She discuss the various series she writes I was interested in Vatta's War a military Sci Fi and will see if Audible has it. I did not learn a great deal about them as the interview was too short but they did discuss about how they go about writing and how the characters changed from their original ideas. This is worth the listen and it is free.

    "not what I expected"

    Overall

    There is nothing from the book except commentary and literary analysis of the book. I do appreciate it, however, that was not how it was presented online.

    If you could sum up The Secrets of the Power of Intention in three words, what would they be?

    change your thinking


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Secrets of the Power of Intention?

    the simplicity in which Dr Dyer explains how the faces of intention determine how we live our lives, if you intend to get pain, suffering, little money, you are right, you will get that. If you intend on feeling good, access abundance, (expecting it to be there, not looking for it), you will live a life free of burdensome thinking. endless searching for the moment you cannot find, it is now. you already have it!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes because I read the Power of Intention and this is just a hearing of the different way he brings it across, it is 7 hours so not in one sitting but I get his point in the first sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read, I first read Excuses Begone, this is my first recommendation of his teachings. I was in Deep Depression and had struggled with it for most of my life. This time it was so bad, I only got out of bed to work part time from home, eat, essentials. I started reading Excuses begone and realized I was holding on to old negative thinking patterns that basically got me to this point. Once I let go of them, they were GONE! I felt instant peace and never go back to the pain of the past anymore. If you are struggling with yourself, constant thinking, worrying. Get his books! especially Excuses Begone and Power of Intention. The two books changed the way I live my life now. More satisfying! Best Quote of Dr Dyers

    In this live lecture, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores intention as an all-pervading force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. Intention, he explains, is not something you do, but an energy you're a part of. Not only do you emanate from the field of intention, but if you align yourself to it, your desires become fulfilled and you find yourself at peace.

    In this lecture, Dr. Hawkins presents some basic ideas, such as the fact that everything happens spontaneously and that nothing causes anything. Everything is an automatic consequence of the energy field. He shows how the power of one’s intention brings about manifestation, and how potentiality becomes actuality in and of itself because of the field. He explains the use of kinesiology, why people may not believe in it, and how the infinite field of consciousness instantly registers truth.
