"I and the father are one," is the sufficiency of the teaching though it's nuance and practice are of a depth requiring stillness and a meditative revelation. It is important to keep in mind that many of the terms used here, while the same as those of conservative fundamentalism, are intimately not the same in usage. Goldsmith hammers out with the lightest of blows a series of truths that are at once enlightening and soul-searing as the ego with which we as people are so enamored is replaced by the Oneness which is god and love. It is not a book to skim or read once but to soak in and revel in a personal awakening.
