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.

    "Skip it"

    I disliked the cheesy acting and role playing. Also huge focus on killing the ego - old spiritual practices.

    "author shows deep understanding of the course"

    it's a great book to start before reading the course Miracles. it's an easy to listen to story that summarizes the course pretty well

    "Love"

    I enjoyed every minute of it. I listened to it various times as new messages have surfaced. An open mind is suggested :)

    "an informercial"

    First of all I want to forgive Gary. This meetup with the two Ascended Masters Arten and Pursah is really far fetched. At one point he even wanted to touch Pursah's hand. I am really not sure whether this write-up of his few years' encounter with them are to sell as a guide to the more magical A Course in Miracle ACIM.

    But to be truthful, Mr Gary's other 2 books that reference ACIM - The End of Reincarnation and Fearless Love, are very good.

    "Every book of his."

    I have every book he has written and read each more than once. I wish he would put ALL of them on audiobooks.

    "Excellent Refresher"

    The Disappearance of The Universe is my favourite book of all time and this audiobook is a great way to refresh these timeless ideas of healing in your mind. This audiobook does not contain the entirety of the book yet still is absolutely totally incredible!

    "A charade..."

    Here are some words to describe my experience of this book: Dogmatic, judgmental, immature, hypocritical, contradictory, arrogant, vulgar, condescending, sarcastic, hostile, offensive, and poorly written. And if you read other reviews about this book, you will find most of these descriptions contained within many of those reviews as well as this one. From my experience… this is an inexcusable presentation of a theoretically spiritual philosophy (supposedly based in love and forgiveness). Perhaps the actual ACIM is a course based in love and forgiveness and this book is a massive disservice to it - I cannot say at this time as I have not read it (ACIM) - yet. If this book is theoretically (a self proclaimed) accurate representation of A Course in Miracles, then my instinct but would be to avoid ACIM like the plague. A major premise of this book is that the universe in which we exist is completely meaningless and a horrific nightmare mistake which simultaneously does not exist in any way, shape or form. ...As far as my experience of this book goes, this book is a horrific nightmare and exponentially more meaningless than it claims our universe to be. I purchased the audiobook after seeing many positive reviews, one in particular recommending reading it prior to reading ACIM in order to be able to understand A Course in Miracles better.

    There are many Amazon reviews previously written explaining more specifically all of the adjectives I have used to describe this book - so please refer to them!

    Essentially, there are a multitude of more enlightened and compassionate spiritual books and texts available - my recommendation: take a pass on this one and perhaps either read the actual A Course In Miracles or look elsewhere altogether.
    One recommendation I do have is to check out Paul Selig's channeled books (among many other excellent options).
    interestingly, I scanned through this book in a bookstore several years ago & was completely turned off by what I read in it at that time, choosing not to purchase it. Unfortunately, I was lured into purchasing it at this time after seeing positive reviews - thinking maybe I had assessed it too harshly at that time. I should have stayed with my first instincts and impression as this book is what is harsh (and not my impressions/assessment of it).
    I certainly did not learn anything new or revelatory in Gary Renard's book. As one reviewer stated it, it is even unhealthy. However, if you wish to believe that your life here and now (or any prior or future lives) are completely and utterly meaningless, while simultaneously being entirely nonexistent illusions) …then forge ahead! Indeed, this world is not as solid as we may believe it to be, but I certainly do not believe our experiences here are utterly meaningless - I am very open to different perspectives on what it is we are doing here and why, but I find many of the premises of this book to be contradictory nonsense, honestly. If the premises in this book were true, then whoever we are and how we came to be here would apparently be a preposterous joke.
    To me this book is a spiritual charade, not enlightening or helpful. Lastly, this book is theoretically teaching true forgiveness. Well, if the two "ascended masters" written about in this book actually exist, I certainly wouldn't want them to be my teachers in forgiveness as they are very intolerant and sarcastic. And. as an extension of that, I certainly hope they would not be representing Jesus' true message - since, as far as I can ascertain, Jesus truly taught only love - not hypocrisy, judgment, intolerance and arrogance as is reoresented within the writings in this book.

    "A new found freedom.."

    A whole new way to look at forgiveness that brings profound peace and spiritual freedom in a world of turmoil and pain.
