Three years later and I still highly recommend this book to people who are new on the spiritual journey as well as those who are "advanced students".

Format: Paperback
My first review of this book was written in 2002. Three years later and I still highly recommend this book to people who are new on the spiritual journey as well as those who are "advanced students". I use that term loosely as I feel that the only advances we ever really make are those in terms of consciousness.

There was one review that said this book was too religious. I think that Butterworth uses a lot of terms associated with the Christian religion but in no means does it make this book "religious". Butterworth stresses that Jesus is not the great exception but the great example.

I can see where the reader may have gotten a tad scared because there is a tendency on the part of some spiritual seekers to want to do away with anything that has to do with Jesus and Christianity. But I feel that the Christian religion is not truly based on the real message of Jesus. Creeds and Dogma and rites and ceremonies came after Jesus left the scene. Let us remember that Jesus himself was not a Christian at all, but a Jew who plumbed the depths of the Torah and had a revelation so magnificent that he wanted to share it with all.

Jesus discovered that there is a Power within all of us. Read your Bible, people! He said, "What I have done, you can do likewise and even greater things than these..." People don't want to hear that because that means we now have an inner responsibility to committ to but let us also remember that it is never we, ourselves, that do the work but the "Father within". Does a seed know how to turn into a flower? Does a caterpillar know how to turn itself into a butterfly? Do we, in all our supposed knowledge, really know how to turn bread, milk, and cheese into bones, muscle, and living tissue?

Format: Paperback
In 1987, I was literally at rock bottom in my life. I just felt devoid of all things good. As I would soon learn...or maybe the more appropriate word here is, 'remember'...nothing really happens by chance... "To everything there is a season; a time to every purpose under Heaven.." (Ecclesiastes 3:1) and I discovered the classic book "Discover the Power Within You". Coming from a traditional religious background, I was a little shocked at some of Butterworth's statements and yet something rang deep within my soul that felt familiar and comfortable. I began to feel as though there really was a purpose in my life and that God really was within me and all around at every moment in my Life...even at the lowest moments in my life. Fifteen years after reading this classic book, I still turn to it now and again and everytime I read it, I find some new jewel within its pages. It's not the words themselves that are healing; it is the implications behind the words that truly heal.
Let yourself heal and reveal the Glory of God within you with the help of this book.

Format: Paperback
This book reviews the lessons Jesus Christ came here to teach, however these lessons are disected and recast with the underlying philosophy that: *we are all the sons and daughters of God, *that we are invinsible beyond measure, *that the Kingdom of heaven is right here and now, and *that within us lies the power and divinity necessary to achieve any dream we can conceive of.
Written with PROFOUND clarity and deep insight, it blows away the prevailing beliefs held by "conventional" Christians over the past 2000 years by revealing that we live in a Universe where there is only love.
The entire book is INSPIRATIONAL, although the most exciting chapter is "The Miracle of Abundance".
Thank you Eric Butterworth for such a masterpiece!

Eric Butterworth's book Discover The Power Within You is fantastic! It lifts the veil of mystery from the spiritual experience. His message is simple and clearly stated, that if we will just excercise the power we all have in us by going within and communing with God, then we will no longer have discord in our lives. It is one of the most profound and moving books that I have ever read. I highly recommend it for anyone who is willing to take personal responsibility for their lives and wishes to co-create with God. Butterworth brings forth Jesus' beautiful message that we are all Gods (John 10:34) - not one more special or powerful than another. We need simply to WAKE UP! and recognize our own innate divinity.

Format: Paperback
Without any doubt, there`s a love / hate relationship with this book, depending on your past, your outlook, your ability to be "open minded", etc... Many readers/reviewers (as you`ll see below) give proof to this statement.
This book connected me to live an inspiring life.
The actuality is that religion is simply based on individuals experiences. Christianity is nothing but this. Jesus had some profound experiences he felt were so important that he must share them with all he could, this led to the formation of Christianity and unfortunately others experiences distorted Jesus` original message and the Catholic Church formed.
What Butterworths books do is try to capture the pure essence of Jesus` teachings before they were contaminated. His opinions will surely anger, baffle and frustrate the closeminded theologian. (What else is new?) For those of you who question, who search and who have not found what you were looking for in the Catholic Church, this book answers those questions as well as helps to redirect your energies, your prayer life & your role in life. What you`ll find is that you already are what you`re looking for. Are you ready?
Many Catholics will greatly appreciate Butterworths books and many will despise. The people vote with their feet though. Look around, more people get their spiritual nourishment from Oprah than sitting in a pew listening to a priest who has failed to connect. Discover the Power Within will surely connect you to that place Jesus found.
Namaste!
