interesting take on "awakening"
on January 19, 2014
im about 3/4ths done with this book and yes I adore the poetry, very lovely expression of ideas in that form. Im going to attempt to say this from my most centered place as best as I can. first off my background is strongly weighted in the teachings of Seth (jane Roberts), Bartholomew (mary-margaret moore and Abraham (Abraham-hicks) as these are the ideas that most resonate with MY inner knowing.
on thousands of "points" all of the above teachings converge or "dove-tail" seamlessly with what alice has come to realize for herself on her journey/ yet, there feels to be an area... now mostly coming into "view" in the later portion of the book that has taken (what feels to me to be) a turn back in on itself in a direction that was probably there all along...
the idea that the (ill use her "terms") "mind-made self" is something that must somehow be ... so continuously, um... monitored? dealt with, even noticed enough to need to step aside FROM, feel to me to be still more (piles and piles of it at this point) MIND games.
to come to a decision that the "small and needy self" (???????) of ourselves is EVEN THAT (ie. small and needy, etc) is so... beyond the truth of who we AS GODS are that its mind blowing to even read the phrase in this book!
to suggest that comfort and relief (of any kind in any manner) is in ANY way a distancing of ourselves FROM source is ludicrous! source IS THAT.
anyway, im not into going into it any more than to say what I have. there is A lot of beauty and wisdom in this book and I appreciate myself for buying it, it has confirmed something on a very deep level for me and for that I thank Alice and wish her all the very best in her continued journey.
