The author has written several books... all on different ideas. He writes a book and then does a workshop tour. So far, he's written The Moses Code, The Kabbalah Code ..so we think maybe he's got a Jewish mysticism idea going on... but THEN he gets on this Saint Francis kick and now, with THE PROOF, he's left judeo-Christianity behind and he's going with generic New Age mysticism. It irks me that authors like Dyer and Vitale and Twyman just seem to pump out books for the purpose of selling books. (Joe Vitale actually wrote a book about how to write best-selling Self-Help books by using hypnotic Power Words!)
He wrote this book with a co-author (Anakha Coman)... if 'writing' is what you could call it. This book is a transcript of conversations they had about ideas of Oneness (a concept they leave sketchily-defined). The book is chockful of sentences like "...The way I'm experiencing [Oneness] in this moment is as a longing of the heart, a longing to remember..."
Each of these metaphor-strewn sections are just a few pages in length. There are 40 Practices (190 pages), the three lessons about "Achieving the Impossible" (30 pages) an Afterward and 14 blank pages labeled "Notes". Each section begins with a few quotes from famous authors and ends with an exercise. These 'exercises' consist, mainly, of a mindset of point of view for the day. ("...Today, practice finding a pace that connects with your natural rhythm and flow...") This material is straight New Age/Guided Meditation tape prose. While it is well-done, it is not innovative.
Finally, the author's premise is hollow. He lets us in on the gambit, unconsciously I think, when he shares that he discovered The Proof, first, by reading a book by a Mentalist (not the psychic kind.... the stage magician kind). He learns a technique that looks like mind-reading but is actually being aware the subtle clues you can pick up by close observation of a person. As he improved his ability to read those unconscious movements and expressions, he began to believe that he truly was reading their minds and that, at some deep level, we must all be One. This 'muscle-reading' technique is taught to the reader so that we can also experience the same revelation. (This is akin to Tony Robbin's Fire-Walk workshops where you learn the trick to walking across a pit of hot coals... thereby discovering that you are a powerful being who can achieve anything you desire.)
If you are a Tony Robbins or a Wayne Dyer fan... if Inspirational literature is something that turns you on... if you like flowery, conversational chapters about Rhythm and Breath and Sound and Heart... you will probably enjoy this book. If you were expecting a book with 'meat'... with clear instructions about real practices that would bring you to the undeniable truth of about the Interdependent Web of Life... you will probably be disappointed.
My vision of God is now found in giving up any belief in the idea of God. And by doing that you discover the infinite and the absolute, and you realize that we are all one in each others eyes...and in God's.
If you are searching to feel more connected, grounded, then this wonderful book will lift your heart, and bring you closer to who YOU are truly meant to be. Now how could you go wrong with that?

I feel that this would be a great book for anyone who is seriously interested in trying to open their heart, to become less isolated and live more soulfully in the world.
