Top Customer Reviews
Here are some reasons why I think this is the case:
1. The author presents his mystical instruction as new and innovative ("Take a glance at the material here. It is revolutionary, it is new in its nature, almost foreign in some ways..."). But even what seems - at least to my ear - to be accurate in the book has been written about by hundreds of mystics, gurus and teachers over thousands of years, from many different cultures around the globe. And much of that previous writing is more in-depth and thorough than what this author has written. Taking a look at the rich traditions of Neo-Platonism, hermeticism, kabbalah, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Christian mysticism, etc. and you would find the original ideas in a much purer and, IMO, more helpful form. The only thing that seems truly original in this book is how some of the core mystical concepts from these traditions are misrepresented or distorted. At one point, when the author alludes directly to a famous Einstein quote, he doesn't give him credit, and this is really on par with the whole experience of "The All Knowing Diary."
2. The visualization methods taught in the book (the "Secret Pages") are - at least from the perspective of most mystical practice - quite basic, do not offer a well-rounded description of the mystical process, and will likely only appeal to some people. Even then, I suspect they may only produce temporary benefits due to their incompleteness.
3. The inaccuracies in the book are also counterproductive. Encounters with the True Self and the attenuation (or elimination) of ego as framed by the author will not provide "cures for all illnesses," "pain-free births," "the fountain of youth," or many of the other things the author claims - at least not according to the ancient systems from which he borrows all of his concepts. And I'm not saying this just because of how incompletely the metaphysics and practices in this book are packaged. It is also because such promises are generally not the aim of mystical practice - just as the practice of spiritual alchemy was not really about turning lead into gold - and such expectations will in fact disrupt the more real and substantive benefits that a more well-rounded mystical system provides. Further, when the author makes statements like "Seek self-belief in all areas and this clarity will return you your riches" or "money reflects your clarity - become clear to become wealthy," he is either advocating an outright falsehood or distorting the essence and purpose of mystical experience as I and countless other practitioners have come to understand it.
Apart from these issues, the book also appears to be a sophisticated advertisement for a predictable money-making scheme - a scheme that, like so many others of late, is based on commoditized self-help training and fuzzy spirituality. When I did a Google search on "The All Knowing Diary," I found training promoted by the author that costs, for example, $2,960 for a 12-module course, individual on-line courses for $150 to $250 each, and $200/hour mentoring. In addition, the language included in the marketing pitches for this training use phrases like "create a limitless business!" or "make huge performance breakthroughs" and are specifically targeted at the usual consumer base for such pitches: athletes, business professionals, parents, etc. Of course I don't know what the author's true intentions are, but such evidence seems pretty disconcerting.
With all of this said, I actually found one or two things in the book that were helpful reminders - such as the difference between "knowing" and "believing." But most of the concepts seemed so oversimplified and diluted that they really do more harm than good, so I felt that this review needed to be written.
It makes a lot of good points but keeps them succinct and brief. He has a training video which teaches the how-to's also.
I followed along with it only once and had answers to 4 of my life dilemmas by morning, without even addressing them specifically for solutions!
It's cool....it's fun....it's simple, solid and it WORKS!!!
This is not a book to keep to yourself - you will no doubt want to share it with like-minded people. If your are sincere about creating a world that works for you and everyone you don't want to just read this book - you want to practice it.
recommend it to someone who hasn't had the experience of connecting
to Universal Intelligence. I think they would find the book a little crazy.
However, for those that have, they can read between the lines and realize
some valuable additions to their journey in connecting to the source.
I'm still not sure if I would recommend someone pay for it...borrow it.
