Some doo-dah down below in the reviews said obviously the publisher posted reviews to prop up this work. I don't write reviews often because I am too busy and other people have said what I would have written already. But I do vote. This book is about seeing yourself the way you resist seeing yourself and seeing others with a new-found compassion because of it. It is about our willingness to see the speck in another's eye while ignoring our own log in the eye. And it offers hope and love as the rewards for our efforts. It is my favorite Pema work though I love everything I have heard by her - probably all her audiobooks. I do audios as my eyes are not so good anymore, must have been all those logs :-D , and I drive an hour a day to my job which is the perfect listening time for this work - get ready to see things differently before work and process before I get home. God bless Pema and her work.
I am a child of the 50's and 60's. I do not know if this makes Ram Dass especially able to speak the language needed to clear away the junk and let the oneness flow through a heart, but he is the finest speaker I have absorbed in many years of listening to keep the vision clear. Tibetan monks very inspirational, clear, worth the time... but Ram Dass is truly western and speaks from this spot making the other realms accessible straight through the heart. This recording is clear and divided into sessions easy to step away from and return to with ease.
When the student is ready the teacher will appear. This is not a book for everyone but if you are ready for this teaching, it will change you. It is a teaching of self realization and Love. Beautiful truth!
