My daughter called this book "epic." That's a good way to start to intimate what kind of work this is: a clear look at "the big picture." Meher Baba's "God Speaks" is the description of the journey of the soul throughout all the realms of the cosmos, told as simply and directly as such can be done. This is the book that inspires the idea of Pete Townshend's song from "Tommy," the "Amazing Journey."

Avatar Meher Baba describes God as a limitless, shoreless ocean and each soul as a "drop soul" of t

Recommends it for: Those who want to know how the universe works
Unlike any book ever. Never before has a spiritual book like this been written, and especially significant that it was written in English. Every other highly spiritual text of a similar magnitude was written hundreds of years ago and in another language.
For anyone who feel that there are too many gaps in the explanation of how life and death happen and what God's relationship to everything and everyone is all about, then read this book. It's like the perfect spiritual book and the perfect scien

Bible-Geeta-Kuran-Upanishad and many more. If you can understand the meaning of love you don't need to read any of them.The God speaks is really fabulous to read.As the divine avatar of the century Meher baba is telling us things which is totally unthinkable by human.The science is trying to prove the existence of God. They have big bang theory, they have galaxies and trying to prove everything we have written in our ancient histories and BookS claimed by religion.

Anti-intellectual solipsisticated chicanery.

I tried to give the book a chance since it was recommended to me by a dear friend, but I couldn’t even get past the “Original whim” chapter. I wouldn't say it is harmful or anything, it’s just that it promises too much greatness (after all, it’s the spiritual fruition of some Indian Sufi with a ridic mustache that claims to be a God) and yet it never delivers anything worthwhile. Right from the first chapters, God Speaks is eerily reminiscent of L. Ron

Recommends it for: all people who are aware and care for spirituality and inner growth.
I have learned that we are not this body, truth is a process not an object to be coveted and that God alone is real. We have a connection to that eternity, and it our journey on earth to find union with our eternal non-self...

What I learned from this book went into our statement, please read that.

We have opened a message board to honro those who have got this far and for those who want to go deeper into interdependent truths or should we say the truth of interdependence.

O abordare interesanta a lumii intr-o viziune care combina sufismul cu vedantismul. Meher Baba numea aceasta viziune ca sufism reorientat. O viziune integrala asupra lumii din cele mai vechi timpuri si pana in prezent. Pe alocuri, am gasit franturi de logica, insa literatura spirituala nu este doar despre rational, nu doar despre ceea ce intelegem. Una peste alta e o lectura placuta, chiar daca pe alocuri greoaie.
I was surprised to find that I already knew most of what's in here, from the "zeitgeist," if you can call it that. Also I was deeply disturbed to find that my understanding of time was completely wrong.

Recommends it for: All people on earth
I have learned a little more about how God Speaks and how it has nothing to do with book and how many you read, nor is our purpose on earth to become trapped in the mind. I learned that I am not my body, I am not my Mind. And that God is love and Meher Baba is God.

This book is like a precious jewel. It is undoubtedly the most difficult and the most rewarding book I have yet read, and for that matter, ever expect to read. Perfect.
