Once again, as of April 25, 2017, I finished reading another book that verifies a concept that has already found its way into my everyday conscious thought. In this case, it is the fact that, “We have lost the connection with God that the ancients had.” But, also, “God’s presence in our lives can be proven via using the feedback loop.”
However, over the past few years; I’ve also grown to become quite certain that the traditional church structure, as we know it, is totally sucking wind in teaching folks how to truly connect with the Lord. “And,” it’s nice to know someone else, with credibility in some circles, sees things the same way.
Deepak Chopra’s, “God; A Story Of Revelation,” is not the first book to confirm my thinking on various topics. However, after my experiences with those who paint themselves as, “Spiritual Leaders,” the contents of this book certainly got my undivided attention.
It’s one thing to feel, in your own heart of hearts, that churches have primarily been operating in a manner that is based more on controlling people rather than serving God’s will. But when you open a book and find someone else has written it down for you to read… Well… “It’s kind of nice to know I’m not the only one who sees this stuff.”
It’s also nice to know that I haven’t been wasting over twenty years of my life working with meditation. I’ve long felt that meditation is more than just a means for manipulating mind and body. I’ve long felt that meditation could be used to manipulate one’s environment as well; using it to discover what God wants from me on a day to day bases.
While Deepak Chopra’s book doesn’t clearly outline the exact techniques used for achieving various goals via meditation; his published work makes it clear that meditation is a powerful component; a catalyst for connecting with the divine to discover one’s day to day purpose. So, if connecting with the divine/God doesn’t have an environmentally altering effect on anyone’s life, “We’re all screwed!”
If you are a deep minded person, not needing your church to tell you how to understand The Bible and view God, this book is well worth your time. However, if you look in the mirror and see a nose ring, complete with leash, affixed to your face, “Forget about it.”
Be aware, too, that this isn’t a book offering tips on the bases of, “Name it and claim it.” So, if you are one of those people who has the mindset of, “It’s not what you can do for your country that matters; it’s what your country can do for you.,” this isn’t your kind of book, either.
“Also,” you don’t have to be a Christian to read this book. “God; A Story Of Revelation,” is one of those books that even a staunch atheist would be able to get something out of.
“Of course,” this is all my opinion, which in the day to day scheme of life, only really matters to a few people. So, if you want to see what I’m talking about, “You’ll just have to pick up a copy for yourself.” Cheers!
