Illusions, The Adventure of a Reluctant Messiah

PinkstarPinkstarPinkstarPinkstarPinkstarIllusions, The Adventure of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach

This lighthearted, mystical adventure story about two barnstorming vagabonds follows a thought-provoking dialogue between a guy named Richard and a real Messiah who quit. I experienced my first "aha" experience reading this book in college. It was like I was remembering something I knew a long time ago, or had found a precious ring after a long arduous search. Insight and humor abound.

I liked this book for many reasons. But the primary reason is, this woman has balls! She knew damn well she was going to get a lot of flack about this book. She knew the possibility of ridicule, but she wrote it anyway. She takes you on an intimate yet powerful journey into her personal life and inner self. I enjoyed traveling with her from Stockholm to Hawaii to the mountains of Peru. I was with her as she struggled with her disbelief till she reached radiant affirmation of who she was and discovered her very roots of existence.

Conversations  With GodPinkstarPinkstarPinkstarPinkstarPinkstarPinkstarPinkstarPinkstarPinkstarPinkstarConversations With God (Book 1) by Neale Donald Walsch

A God with wit, humor, and who doesn't speak in parables? About time. Neale isn't claiming to be the Messiah of a new religion, just a man who sat down one day with pen in his hand and some tough questions in his heart. As he wrote his questions to God, he realized that God was answering them... directly... through Walsch's pen. The result, far from the apocalyptic predictions orcultic eccentricities you might expect, turns out to be matter-fact, in-your-face wisdom that rings so true it's hard to put down. As I started reading this book, it was more like I was REMEMBERING the truths for the first time.

This book clarifies the complications and differences in "styles" between men and women. I laughed all the way through it.

A must read for anyone that's in a relationship or wants to have a relationship or has contact with other people. Have I missed anyone? Incredibly simple yet packed full of insights into how we think and behave in relationships. Mr. Kaufman shines a light on all the beliefs we hold about love and relationships, and how those beliefs lead us to fear, anxiety, distance, confusion, and distrust, not love. Once I saw the beliefs, it gave me the power to change them, and have the type of relationship I always dreamed about. In my opinion, this book should be studied from 1st grade through life.
