Suppose you could ask God the most puzzling questions about existence, and God would provide clear, understandable answers? It happened to Neale Donald Walsch. Conversations with God is Neale Donald Walsch's account of his direct conversations with God, beginning in 1992 while Walsch was immersed in a period of deep depression. He composed a letter to God in which he vented his frustrations, and much to his surprise, even shock, God answered him.
I have been in love with this book since it came out. It freed my mind when I was very much in need of clarity, and I revisit it every so often. I can't think of any voices better than Ed Asner and Ellen Burstyn to read god's dialogue, perfectly balanced with Mr. Walsch's. Just read it. Sit, listen carefully, and really let the message sink in. Don't listen in the background and miss what may be the one statement that makes the difference in your soul.
In The Four Agreements, don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the The Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.
The narration by Peter Coyote is brilliant. He's got the perfect voice for this book. He emphasizes in just the right places. The book itself is great, giving a nice bridge between Christian, Native, Asian and other faiths without being insulting to any of them. The native flute in the background makes this a calm, easy listen. Hubby and I both enjoyed.
Highlights from the AudioGO range of 'Doctor Who' titles. Includes clips from: Doctor Who at the BBC, Doctor Who and the Daleks, The Tenth Planet, The Wheel of Ice, The Invasion, Doctor Who and the War Games, The Mind of Evil, Vengeance of the Stones, City of Death, The Stuff of Nightmares (Hornets' Nest 1), Babblesphere, Earthshock, Slipback, Paradise Towers, Tales from the TARDIS Volume 2, Only Human, The Last Voyage, Touched by an Angel, The Jade Pyramid and Genesis of the Daleks.
Sounds like clips from the old show. Very disjointed, with no plotline. Don't bother unless you like that sort of thing.
To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.
I've been reading "enlightenment" books for years, so this one didn't grab me as it likely would many people. Tolle's voice is very soothing, but the male and female co-narrators seemed bored a bit. The chime every few minutes began to be annoying, despite the fact I love (and own) a chime like that. I realize the point it probably to keep people in "the now" but I tend to listen and apply separately.
For me there was nothing new here but it was good to hear it so that I can apply one more perspective to my repertoire. For me, hearing the author's back story was the best, as it shows people you can reach Nirvana from even the lowest of lows - much like N.D. Walsche of the "Conversations with God" books. Overall, definitely a good read.
