Publisher's Summary

We had been in India about two years, doing regular routine research work, when I met the Master known in these writings as Emil. While walking along a street in the city where we were staying, my attention was attracted to a crowd. I saw the center of interest was one of the street magicians, or fakirs, that are so common in that country.

As I stood there I noticed beside me an elderly man who was not of the same caste as those about him. He looked at me and asked if I had been long in India.

I replied, "About two years."

He asked, "Are you English?"

I answered. "American."

Brilliant teachings beckoning to step over the edge

A well written and well narrated story that answers many questions, yet makes one even more hungry to know if there’s more ...
Can’t wait do delve into the other volumes. Would be fantastic if Jonn Marino narrated them !!

The Power is Within.

I really enjoyed hearing what I have felt all along, that the Power is within us,
not out there.

Insighful spiritual and food for the soul. I’ll be listening to it again . You get a sense of hope and a feeling of it’s so simple.

This book is what Jesus was trying to convey

Narrator was great but I was following along with the actual book and noticed he was skipping paragraphs that are written in the book. I did not like that.

This book is a must read to truly grasp who and what Jesus was trying to convey. Yet modern society religious dogma has it believed that only through the acceptance of a man named Jesus will this third party person forgive you for the bad things you've done by just asking and that the worshipping of this idol/deity will gain you access to the heavens or you will burn in the eternal fire pits of hell. That, however, is not true. God is within, not without. This book pretty much confirmed what I have been discovering throughout my own re-search.

Read the entire series.

Absorbing

The narrator gave a peppy and easy to follow read. If you are on a spiritual journey as I am, you may find these observations and concepts fortifying your own inner discovery.

Worth the Wait

Most enjoyable!!!
I’ve waited a long time for a book like this. It expresses much of what I’ve been given in inspirational meditational experiences. I can’t wait for more.

Dr Joe Dispenza spoke of this book he had read.

I have enjoyed this book and now on my second read in combination with daily meditation I see the insights and divine messages personal to every reader. Much light and love

Extraordinary recounting of amazing encounters.

This expedition in 1894 of a group of eleven people visiting the Far East is meticulously recounted and contains the wisdom of the ages. I have re-read the whole collection a couple of times and listening to the first volume whilst walking in a park is truly a blessing rediscovered a-new. God bless Spalding for his work and John Marino's story telling voice is perfect for this book.
I would recommend listening to this rendition for anyone on a spiritual path wanting to grow further in consciousness.
