I'm still not sure what on earth this was about. Not only was it awful, but also confusing as hell and filled with ridiculous statements.

"This is why humans suffer, but you are not actually human, so it isn't necessary for you to suffer this way."

So...this is telling me I'm not a human being. Great. Great start. I should have stopped right there and mark this as DNF. In fact, I'm still trying to figure out why I didn't.

"Essence loves it all, even the chaos, messiness, and challenges."

I picked this book up expecting to find a book about divinity and connecting with it, how to expand your worship and practice, or something similar. Instead, I got a face full of almost incoherent ramblings bordering on cultist propaganda, emotional manipulation, and brainwashing. There are so many problems with it that I don't even know where to start.

First of all, it's an absolute travesty that trees are being wasted to create paperback formats of this book. It's bad enough, in my eyes, that t

Absolutely outstanding. The writing style is very clear, and the author has the most important message to humanity that I have ever read. This book has helped me grow and I can apply everything that she has had to say. Anybody who is on a spiritual path would be very well advised to read this book.

All I can say about this book is what the hell was this woman smoking and where can I get some? It reads like the ramblings of a total nutjob with some serious problems with magical thinking and I'd advise her to seek therapeutic intervention immediately. There's such things as spirituality and then there's delusional. I want my 2 hours back.

I very much enjoyed reading this well written book, which calls us to awaken to our true nature.
The author points out how ego draws us into its unreal world of thought, it continuously gives attention to itself and it never ending needs. While we are the Divine in disguise as human beings, our life journey is intended to bring us back to love. Instead of constantly being pulled into egos agendas we are being directed to follow essence, our innate intuition and surrender to the flow of life. The

I struggled to read this one. I was hard for me to get into and I am sorry to say that I couldn't even finish it.

She rambled far too much about, I don't even know what. It was complete nonsense from the beginning. It was a free book so I didn't lose anything other than my time from reading this, but I would not recommend this book at all.

Easy read!

This was an easy read that just felt "right" the whole way through. There were many times where I found myself smiling and taking a screenshot because I was able to identify with what was being said.

I'm sure this book is liked by somebody, somewhere, but it wasn't for me. It seems to be more appealing to the fundamentalist Christian. But since it was free, I guess I should not complain too much.

Good read to start a great year. I left my A New Earth book by Eckhart Tolle on the plane right after New Years returning from holiday. I had this on my Kindle and decided to give it a try. It was a quick read that calmed my mind.

Hard to put down

I have been reading self help books. I felt this book hit on the spiritual aspect of what I had already been reading.

I much preferred Eckhart Tolle's "New Earth" and Marianne Williamson's "Return to Love," which cover the same principles more lucidly. But this is a quick read.

I feel that this book is very reliable and wonderful on helping focus on relationships, communication, religion, and mindfulness.

Great for living in the moment and feeling oneness. If you are religious don't read books like this, you won't get it..

I was hoping for something to bring me to a more religious place and instead I got something more incoherent and rambling.

Everything in life offers an opportunity for awakening in Truth. This little book is a clear reminder of that.
