More About the Author

In 1986, a teacher named Harry Palmer created The Avatar Course. That same year he founded Star's Edge International®, the seminar management corporation that supervises the delivery of the Avatar Materials. Harry's writings are a profound contribution to the growing body of knowledge, exercises, and processes directed to self-improvement. Many individuals and companies in the personal-development industry have adopted his ideas.

Harry Palmer dresses simply, lives simply, and remembers to open the door for the ladies. He looks at you steadily when you talk and, if you get the feeling that he is interested in what you have to say, he is. In sharp contrast, he is also the CEO of a rapidly growing international corporation and the unexpected inheritor of a prestige that once belonged only to prominent spiritual leaders. This simple man's writings are creating a movement that is sweeping the planet.

Today, few who fair-mindedly study Harry Palmer's techniques can doubt the profound effect that his writings are having on the collective consciousness of the world. Harry's writings have been translated into 20 languages, and his business model has had a major impact on the personal-development seminar industry.

I was actually introduced to 'Living Deliberately' which I read way back in the early 90's, as part of my new journey to design & craft the second part of my life.

At that point in time, I found it to be somewhat esoteric.

In a nut shell, there are actually three important parts in the book:

- the first part deals with the author's personal awakening & transformation;
- the second part outlines the working philosophy behind the proprietary & expensive AVATAR training, which the author has created based on his personal awakening & transformation;
- the final part covers belief system, experiencing reality & creating thoughtforms; to be more precise, about how our beliefs create our thoughts, in turn, how our thoughts create our experiences (& how we can discreate them at will); these aspects form the philosophical foundation of the AVATAR training;

Frankly, I didn't quite enjoy reading the book in the beginning, although it introduced me to the 'working mechanism' behind belief engineering. I was hooked & went on to read & explore other works, especially Bruce Doyle's 'Before You Think Another Thought'. To me, the author of this book did a much better job in explaining the many aspects of belief engineering. Many thanks to you, Bruce!

For readers who are still interested in reading 'Living Deliberately', I would suggest a companion book to go along, i.e. 'Resurfacing: Techniques for Exploring Consciousness' (also by Harry Palmer), which has a series of 30 practical exercises. These specially tailored exercises will give readers the 'world experience' of being in control, rather than absorbing more 'word experience.' It is definitely worth exploring!

This book tells the story of Harry Palmer and his journey to higher awareness. It is filled with interesting stories. I thuroughly enjoyed it. I'm not convinced that his training is worth $2,400, but I liked the book.
If your interested, there is also a book called Resurfacing which has many of the exercises from the first couple of days of the Avatar training.

Format: Paperback
I didn't realize the transforming power of this book til some of its lines stopped me in my tracks for a frozen moment in time, the auspicious statement: I am a belief that believes. What is he talking about, I thought? Further reading yields more gems: ...reality is anything we believe it to be! Then: we create possibility by believing ourselves into it, and we dissolve limitation by believing ourselves out of it! This is so contrary to what life supposedly had taught me. Then the author describes how we can encounter word lessons daily but what about world lessons, actually carrying out and applying it, to see if it is so. I tore out the card in back and took my course of Resurfacing for this world lesson recently. It exceeded my expectations! And I am feeling on top of creation and enjoying creating ever more. I highly recommend this book. I gave it a 4 and you can get the other 1 point by taking the course and then give it a 10!

Harry Palmer has discovered the secret of how to live life in a deliberate way. In this delightful, entertaining narrative of his own explorations in consciousness he tells how he discovered the insights to develop a course which offers experiential tools that everyone can use to create the life they prefer. The book is easy to read and offers much food for thought. I have read and reread it. Every time, I take away a new "word" lesson which deepens my understanding of my self. Very worthwhile reading for anyone who is searching for a way to create happiness in their life.

One hears a lot of psychobabble about how 'we create our own reality' but here is a solid, compelling description of an investigation into the processes through which we shape our own experiences - a must read for anybody interested in personal evolution (and beyond!). It could transform your life...

Format: Paperback
AN EXCELLENT BOOK FOR ANYONE SEEKING THE TRUTH. HARRY COULDNT HAVE DONE BETTER.....THE TEXT IS SO LUCID AND SIMPLE TO READ. THE BOOK COVERS THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE AVATAR MATERIALS AND THE PRINCIPLES UPON WHICH THE WHOLE SYSTEM IS BASED. STRONGLY RECCOMENDED FOR THOSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE THEIR LIVES BY JUST READING A BOOK!! MIGHT PUT A LOT OF SHRINKS OUT OF BUSINESS!!

Format: Paperback
Every now and then, a message will illuminate the path we walk and provide a meaningful guide for the philosophical questions we ask about our lives. During the past decade, I have read Living Deliberately, three times. From achieving source (awareness without definition) to our beliefs (filtered perceptions), we get an appetizer before the rest of our lives. Some of the morsels sampled during this reading: Honesty (the courage to face what we fear); Fear (our belief in our inadequacy to deal with something); Regret: a break in higher self trust. Consider (abridged): The only real difference among us is the beliefs we create. Beliefs can be created and discreated.

Wait untill you take the course! Harry Palmer outlined the mechanics of conciousness and found a way (for anyone who wants) to explore the most intimate realm exisiting for any individual. Some people say it's a complicated book. Some people say life is complicated. The invitation from Palmer is to become very interested in it, and explore for yourself. The results a stunning. This modern mind technology really works! Beyond meditation, beyond therapy...Read this book and get the feel of what life is all about and what you can contribute to it!
