Here we see a talking horse helping out a boy who is lost. Instead of telling the story from the perspective of the boy, we see it from the horse's perspective. We see a young orphan making his way across a country wondering why people keep wanting to catch him. We see the kids from the ‘Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ as adults leading as they talk about at the end of that book. We see Arsheesh coming back and playing the prophet/Christ figure in the story. In the end it’s a good story for kids to listen to.
Years ago my mother would take notes while reading books to keep track of thoughts as the book progresses. She can figure out how a story ends before anything is revealed by the author. I tried this concerning the Game of Thrones series, but I gave it up. Here are all those notes and it’s in a nice format.
Anyone that loves or just watches/reads the Game of Thrones this book ties all the threads together. Yet, it doesn’t reveal how it ends, but it does give you an idea of how it will end. We are still waiting on the last two books after all.
When the dead sea scrolls were discovered and the translation began there was much fan fair. Now today people believe that these scrolls are just beginning to be translated when they’ve been being translated since 1947. Here the book or scroll of Isaiah is the most complete and gives us the most detailed information. This reminds me of so many other prophecies of the future, but these are more accurate.
In this book we learn that with all prophecies can be changed we just have to change. There is a prophecy of World War III, but this can’t be allowed to happen because this is a time of awakening. All literature from the past show that each time we get to this point War comes and stops it.
You really need to read this book to tie together what all the spiritual sages of our time and the past sages.
Here the author talks you through basic and complex meditations. Unlike other books that talk about the meditations, here they are. At the end of the book the author has put a lot of meditation with each one being labeled for use when you need it. I recommend this book just for these meditations along with the wisdom contained with it. I would also recommend that the publisher include a PDF of all meditations be included or people buy the Kindle version to get them rather than searching all over the Internet for them.
Unlike Graham's previous book where there was no opening stated purpose of the book. This book probably because of the second author starts out with a stated purpose. Why are people fighting any in depth studies of the Sphinx? The same is true of all these great works called the seven wonders of the world which is off anyways. I believe there is over a 100 wonders that should be listed. We haven’t even begun to look at what was talked about in the Fingerprints of the Gods and the Source Field Investigations.
The big question is that all books ask that look into the past is: ‘Why are people scared to relook at everything with fresh eyes?’ No one can tell us how any of these great works were done and why we're not talking about the the ones in India, Russia, the US, Africa and throughout Asia. Those in true power must be really scared of the truth which they know will eventually happen no matter what they do.
When I first heard Deepak Chopra I didn’t like what he had to say or like the book at all! Then years later I was led to another of his books by what can be described as ‘Spirit’. I listened and realized that he was teaching the same thing as SO many other authors that people are ignoring. I’ve read Edgar Casey, Mike Dooley, Wayne Dyer, and many more. I’ve did Buddhist training for 7 years and left it because the path wasn’t working for me at that time. Now I understand that we have to do this at times. Like in the book ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ and the work of Jack Kornfield you can’t attach to a ‘teacher’ or ‘path’. I read this book and did the exercises and I will keep using the exercises as I move forward, but not as in using dogma.
I’ve enjoyed this book and it would be nice if there was a PDF with all the meditations on it to make it easier to do them later rather than looking them up on the Internet! This would make this book perfect as it is!
I see why Steve Jobs liked this book. Steve wanted to be a spiritual Yogi or leader of people. In many ways he was and he got his wish in some ways. I liked the book learning about India Vedic training in the form of Yogi. The wisdom built into this book goes long with Deepak Chopra's work, Mike Dooley and many others. It’s well worth anyone reading the previous author’s work. I will not ruin it for you, but you should read it. I will say that by the halfway point you will understand why Steve Jobs liked it. Plus you will understand the simple wisdom contained within it. The sound is a little off as it goes loud to quiet quite suddenly.
I was told that this book was the basis for the Source Field Investigations by David Wilcox. I can’t see how that is even remotely possible. I enjoyed learning about all the evidence that is verifiable of civilizations that existed before the accepted scholarly dates of the first human civilizations. Along with the stories similar to event in the biblical stories of bible being carved on stone tablets before the date of the first human civilizations. Why is this information not being actively talked about or taught in schools? I would like to see more of this work, but they need to start the book off explaining what they’re talking about. This is why I don’t like this book as a whole as it took me a bit to understand where they’re coming from.
This is a great story from the 1950’s when you could hitchhike all across the country and sleep out in public spaces. Now there are no public spaces you can do that in legally because most are ‘privately owned’. With that aside I do like the story where you have three different views on what the Dharma is and how different people see it. I would liked to have read at the end an epilogue of where everyone was ten years from when the story ended. After reading it I can see that like the Tao, you can’t speak the Tao and have it be the true Tao the Dharma is the same as in it has a different meaning to everyone that practices it.
Oh, and I do like the part where the woman talks about the ‘police’ watching everything you do just because they can and 50 years after this book was published congress gave the ‘police’ just that authority.
The author takes two books at opposite ends of the spectrum and combines them in a nice complementary way. Along the way he ties these two back into the Tao Chi Ching. I enjoyed it and learned a lot. I won’t spoil and of it, but to tell you to read it. Remember this is easier than the Tao Chi Ching to understand.
John C. Maxwell has been writing leadership books for years and I’ve enjoyed them. Here he has taken many teachings from several books and put them in one spot. If you want a condensed teaching as why mentoring is so important and more important in today’s world this is it. You can read all of John’s books on the this subject and there are several of them and I encourage you to do so! This is just a general overview with little specific details about how to do certain things when mentoring. Please don’t think this is ‘IT’ because it’s only the beginning of a journey that is well worth it!
