IS REALITY RELATIVE? Jan. 24 2010
By Angelina Heart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? - A must read for any thinking person, questions if reality is only relative. According to Dr. Eldon Taylor's most thought provoking work to date, our perception of reality is ever in flux and is always relative to our conditioning, experiences, belief systems, our willingness to open our hearts and minds to new paradigms, and whether or not we live in fear or love. This autobiographical tale reveals how one of the most brilliant minds in America came to question reality and the value and purpose of our multilevel perceptions. Each new reality initiates a journey into a new trajectory of soul expansion, and more importantly brings one to the comprehension that we create our own realities.

He's all over the place April 3 2010
By Life-long learner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was disappointed in this book. It's all over the place. Wise and insightful one moment, missing the point the next moment. (Example: Arguing that Gandhi's approach doesn't apply to today's terrorists because they don't possess the same sensibilities as the British did misses the larger point about Gandhi's genius. Gandhi was so successful because he read his opposition so well and continually adapted his approach to their mindset and tactics. He wouldn't have approached today's terrorist the same way he approached the British. His approach to the British was taylor-made for who there were and what they valued.)

The author has had some extraordinary experiences, and I give him credit for trying to figure out what they mean, but perhaps the meaning would be more easily found by looking at the bigger patterns instead of trying to examine each event separately, in its own detail. And I would advise him to remember to keep things in context. Just because you have a hammer doesn't make everything a nail; just because you have a wonderous and wonderful experience doesn't mean that the same thing will be as helpful in another circumstance.

This author's frustration at searching for meaning is evident, but not really helpful for readers. I would advise readers to steer clear of this book unless they are simply seeking a companion as they slog through their own confusion.

Use this book as a doorway to great conversations with everyone. April 26 2010
By Sussi G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've been a marriage and family therapist for thirty plus years, and this book has dramatically changed the way I work with clients.

When I read the statement that "The greatest guru can only ask the questions that will lead us inward to search for meaning", I realized that I needed to begin with the questions about what it might mean that they are where they are, and why they are doing what they are doing. It moves us to a much higher logical level immediately. Heart-felt solutions and new meanings and understandings of life experiences emerge quickly for all of us.

Clients take the question with them and stay at the higher level of open-ended questioning and delighted observation. It's like the "spiritual" scientific method.

Dr. Taylor allows us to walk with him through his own fascinating life of intelligent searching, observation and testing of beliefs and hypotheses. His own life experiences sound amazing, until you begin thinking of all of your own that are just as amazing and unexplainable.

The book has led me to ask people I meet (like the "complainer" in the next seat on the airplane), if they have ever had an experience that doesn't seem possible in the light of current scientific knowledge. It's fun, try it! Almost everyone has, and it leads to deeper and more interesting conversations about meaning.

Even my "digital native" nephews and nieces look me up for non-digital conversations at family gatherings!

Non-Preachy Brilliance Sept. 8 2010
By Gillian Holloway - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The Complete Dream Book, 2nd edition: Discover What Your Dreams Reveal about You and Your Life

This enjoyable book from master storyteller Eldon Taylor is thought provoking and fun at the same time. It takes a truly wise person to have such a light, engaging touch while inviting you into questioning the limits of reality. Taylor recalls mysterious incidents in his life, including once when his life was saved inexplicably, as if he were somehow lifted out of the scene of an accident. His memories are so fascinating and well told, that they stand alone as fabulous stories, yet each one begs the question of taking another look at what we define as "real" and possible.

The chapters and essays are short and pithy, with such titles as: Airy Fairies, Whiny Wimps and Scandalous Shamans. His humor makes everything easy to take, and his style allows you to make up your own mind about miracles, coincidences, mysteries and most important of all: meaning. His message seems to be to trust yourself and to keep asking intelligent, open minded questions. Perhaps that is one of the most important things any of us can do.

Life Changing March 29 2010
By K. Dianne Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
While reading this book, I realized how much religious guilt I had been carrying around since childhood. Although I had been denying it for most of my life, I suddenly understood that I had literally and finally gotten rid of it! It was like taking a deep breath after being suffocated for years.

Thank you, Mr. Taylor, for writing this book and for your remarkable insight. I normally share my books with others but instead, I'll buy my friends their own copy. This is something I will be reading over and over again!
