Couldn't get through the first part of the book
on March 31, 2015
Being an environmentalist who loves nature, I thought I would like this book. However, I couldn't get through the first part of it. How it twists the biblical idea of knowing the truth from its fruits into promoting these necklaces/chopping down trees was a little bit too weird for me and just shows the tendency in the new age to twist spiritual concepts to sell something or to try to make money. The idea that the cedars are "ringing" and need to be cut down to activate our energy/heal us etc, to me is like humans believing we are ascending through DNA activations while not really caring that Fukushima, fracking, pollution, oil spills and other issues are threatening nature's entire existence.
To me, it just goes back to humans really need to learn to leave nature alone, become more natural themselves, and stop being so greedy and only concerned about what affects humans all the time. I'm a big fan of intention living, off-grid ideas etc. And, I really don't know what this book has to impart on these kinds of topics because getting through the first part of the book I felt so disgusted by the idea of humans chopping down all these ringing cedars (claiming that chopping them down would help the planet somehow) that I couldn't read anymore.
