Publisher's Summary

What would you do if you were sitting quietly in your living room when a mysterious couple suddenly appeared from out of nowhere, and then told you they were "ascended masters" who had come to reveal some shocking secrects of existence and teach you the miraculous power 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 audiobook: 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 history.

    "Hire People To Do What You Can Not"

    The content of the book and its conversational delivery of Course material is invaluable. It shaves years off study and assures you read the Course from a context that is not from your past. It helps the new student navigate the language and levels of the course so as not to unnecessarily delay your experience while caught up in vernacular or the all to common mistake of confusing the metaphysical content and the literal content. Read this book several times along with the Course. It is a priceless companion.

    Yet, the delivery is nearly painful to listen to. The"acting" to keep the content of the conversation and inflections meaningful as well as relative to the content is like a middle school play of Shakespeare. You get the content but the delivery is so off at times it's distracting. The author gets to hire out a voice and professional to do what he can not so the listener won't be distracted by his labored breathing and monotone inflections. The other two actors try their best but there is no chemistry. I would be honored to be the voice for the next two books in the series. If it's Gary again, I will stick with the book form and not pay for the audible. And I forgive it all. Joe. Mookdi at aol dot com.

    "wow, i'm in awe."

    this is a new christian theology that borrows from buddhism. i say so not for the sake of terminology and technicality but for the idea that world religions may(scratch may, use are instead) ultimately be one and the same thing, a universal truth. this is christianity going back to its roots.
    this book is going to change the world.

    Story
    "learning to embrace letting go"
    If you could sum up The Disappearance of the Universe in three words, what would they be?

    forgiveness as the solution


    What other book might you compare The Disappearance of the Universe to and why?

    The Selfish Gene

    That is another very novel 'big-picture' view of things that I found fascinating. From a totally different perspective mind you.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    At the outset of the book. If inspiration suddenly manifested itself as a pair of angelic beings on the couch just opposite me, would I listen to them/it, or would I figure I needed to up my meds?

    If you dare to read on for a while, you discover this is a fascinating exploration of life's biggest questions and it offers some compelling concepts but also exercises in experiential learning and problem solving.


    What did you learn from The Disappearance of the Universe that you would use in your daily life?

    How much I can relax if I don't spend so much time judging things and others.

    "The material was great!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, absolutely, but I would say to ignore that it sounds like they are reading to first graders. Just concentrate on the message.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gary.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrators?

    Yes, I just would like them to read it better


    What did you learn from The Disappearance of the Universe that you would use in your daily life?

    Quantum vs Newtonian forgiveness.
