His book is a collection of profound and often amusing dialogues with an unseen being that "wrote itself" during eleven days in May. An unusual person by any yardstick, his inquiring mind asked the most challenging questions about the nature of reality, like what is death and what is the purpose of our lives; what is God and how is the physical world brought into existence; how the world of light generates and envelops the world of form. The answers are coherent and never superficial, provoking a lot of reflection on the part of the reader. It is intensely satisfying when you can add another insight to the mosaic of your own understanding of the universe, and this book is full of them.
I was reminded of the scene from "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" where Indy's faith is tested as he prepares to step out over a chasm. It is a leap of faith for most of us to believe in a Creator and trust that there is a purpose in our lives. Books like "11 Days in May" are like the sand that Indy threw out over the path to outline the steppingstones across the fearsome void.
I have been an avid reader of self development books since the 90's. I have read 100's of books in human development, communication, metaphysical topics, law of attraction and success books. Was listening to a radio program that interviewed JD Messinger (the author) and thought that his take was very different and that he added his own unique credibility to what he was saying.
I have been finding this book very different than most that I have read in the subject area. New perspectives put in a new way. I am pretty sure that what JD has written is going to cause a shift for me. And I think it will for a lot of people. One of the things that struck me and has made me pay attention is the fact that he came from the background that he describes and still took that leap of faith. I respect that more than I can say. I came from a financial background and had some pretty strong (life changing) wake up calls as well. Took me on a new path and I am way happier. I have also experienced some of that synchronicity that he describes. I want more of that. Life is magical when that happens. That is where the shift will come I think. For me, being more aligned and less concerned about things is what it has helped me with the most.
Read it. You wont be disappointed.
Also, he is accessible. He actually answers emails and takes the time to respond.
Just thought I would give you my two cents.
I found it easy to follow the dialogue and it provided me a way to remember the exchange. In other words, I learned something about what he was trying to convey. More importantly, I learned some things about myself, how to frame some of my previous experiences. It was worth my time and thought. My compliments to JD Messinger for choosing to tackle this project and provide a view I would not normally see without his story and process.
Get this book it is incredible.
