The fact that this book has taken on a life of its own and is being read several times by those who buy it, as well as given away by so many of them, doesn't come as a surprise to me. I couldn't put it down. A spiritual book doesn't get any better than this, that is, if you're ready for it and don't expect your spirituality to always be sugar coated. The Disappearance of the Universe is funny, even a little racy at times, but perhaps that's because Renard is a real guy, and his teachers talk to him in a way he can accept and understand. The result is the clearest explanations of advanced spiritual principles I've ever seen, and it doesn't stop there, but leads the reader into the practical application of what is described as "advanced forgiveness." This in turn leads to the removal of unconscious guilt from the mind which is an absolute necessity in order for true enlightenment to be achieved. Only then can we break the cycle of birth and death.Read more ›
Altogether, a wonderful read. I have bought copies for a number of friends.
As a COURSE student for over ten years, I've heard many folks say that the Course - particularly much of the Text itself - can be a bit difficult for some to get through, the information being quite deep, often subtle, and in many cases even startling! (No one said the path to Enlightenment would be easy...) One of the great qualities of DISAPPEARANCE is it's conversational presentation; a series of down-to-earth dialogues between the author and his Teachers. The basic principles of the Course (and metaphysical spirituality in general) are discussed and clarified in ways that even the most uninitiated will find easily understandable, and consistently interesting and enjoyable to read.
For the more advanced Course student - or even for anyone with a background in metaphysics and spirituality - DISAPPEARANCE covers material that opens up new insights into the nature of the illusory universe, and brings a deeper focus into our understanding of the principles the Course teaches. The very nature of "advanced forgiveness" is one of the book's central themes, and this concept and the need for practicing it regularly - while certainly covered completely within the Course itself - is brought to new emphasis very effectively within the pages of DISAPPEARANCE.Read more ›
