For me, this book is Holy Spirit’s help to take me to the next level. This book has served the ONE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT PURPOSE. I am speaking of FORGIVENESS. Through the course, I gained the knowledge and understanding of the components of forgiveness, but somehow wasn’t able to put them all together. Then, along came this book and now I get it.
Forgiveness process is: learning to believe and see that this world is just a dream, that I am not this body, that what this body sees and feels and experiences is not happening. That no one is doing anything to me, because what I see and experience out in the world is really my own projected hatred and guilt which are inside me. But this is not real either, because I never sinned against God. I never separated from God. The real me is and has always been one with God all along. So, I do not have to run and hide from God and I have nothing to feel guilty about. I did not do anything wrong.
Forgiveness is being aware of all of this and then letting go of what this body sees and experiences and feels. It is learning to detach and separate myself from this world, by not getting emotionally involved in its activities, by remembering that this is just a dream, that it is not real and it is not happening.
Finally, since this body is not me, then, it does not matter what happens to this body. I can completely detach and separate from this body and have no personal investment nor attachment to this body. But since this body is here in this illusory world at the moment, then, by all means, Holy Spirit please utilize it for the good of all oneness.
The above is my personal paraphrase, elaboration and extension of the process of forgiveness as described in the book. As it is said in Gary’s book, the words do not matter, it is the attitude that is important.
So, the truth is here. Now, comes the diligent part of applying it which is the next phase of my life.
By the way, it really doesn’t matter to me where or from whom Gary received these insights, whether they came from ascended masters, Pursah and Arten, or from other sources. All this truth comes down from Holy Spirit anyway, regardless of the mouth through which it is spoken.
There are many other spiritual gold nuggets that I have gleaned from the reading of this book. And, I was also able to fill in some spiritual gaps, things I was curious about, with the information from this book as well. But, there are also some pages and chapters, especially towards the end, that just do not add up for me. Throughout, I heavily relied on Holy Spirit’s guidance and discernment to sort through everything to determine what to keep and use and what to discard.
Lastly, I was able to understand this book precisely because I have spent considerable amount of time studying the course first. The course was also the place where I learned to discern Holy Spirit’s thoughts and messages.
But, then, your path may be different. So, may the Holy Spirit guide you.
Thank you, Holy Spirit. Thank you, Pursah and Arten. Thank you, Gary. Thank you, Patrick Miller. Thank you, Hay House Publishers. Thank you, Amazon. And thank you Pip, my beloved spiritual co-traveler, who told me about this book to begin with.
PS. Since finishing this book, I have returned back to my studies in the course... And, after having read Gary's book, I am noticing a huge difference. The truths in the course touch me on a much deeper level. There is great clarity. This book has and is helping me tremendously in my spiritual path... the goal of which is full awakening. So, again, thank you everyone.
It is a new way of looking at the world as told to the author by two ascended masters. Once you believe what the masters have said, then you go on to the next book, A COURSE IN MIRACLES. This book, which is a major eye-opener, will have to be read more than one time for complete comprehension. I highly recommend this book. It is like no other.
I started to think that the Universe didn't add up. If that was true, what was I doing here?
And also, for the last couple of rare channeled readings I had had over the years, my guides had thrown in disturbing comments like "The world is a place of limitation; the limitations are to help you find out who you really are; the earth isn't real it's a projection"; etc.
Finally I got so confused by my own conclusions and these comments that I prayed with great intensity and sincerity, "Dear God, show me the truth, the full truth, and nothing but the truth."
A week later I found The Disappearance of the Universe, on the front display case at Borders. It was indeed the answer to my prayer.
This book contains the truth, and it is meant for all those who are ready for it, who are tired of seeking and tired of illusions and fantasies and spiritual dead ends and inexplicable frustrations and paradoxes and 'mysteries' and promises unfulfilled; tired of the apparent insanity of the known world; tired of the "spiritual buffet line," and ready for real answers. In fact, this books answers all the myriad questions that have remained unanswerable for millennia -- unanswerable by philosophers, theologians, spiritual teachers, psychologists, physicists, and the world's greatest and deepest thinkers.
I think this book is destined to be acknowledged as the most important book written in the 21st century. It's certainly the most important book I've ever read, and I've been a spiritual seeker since 1975 (and a professional in the field for over 15 years).
In the popular movie and book The Secret, renowned author and teacher Michael Beckwith tellingly states, "You attract to you the predominant thoughts that you're holding in your awareness -- whether those thoughts are conscious, or unconscious; that's the rub." Unfortunately, neither Beckwith nor any other teacher ever goes on to explain what is in our unconscious, much less how to change or heal it. Whereas, The Disappearance of the Universe teaches that it's not the beliefs in our conscious or even subconscious minds that run people; what really runs us are the beliefs we have that are completely unconscious. DU presents a way to actually heal and remove the things that are hidden in the deep canyons of the unconscious mind. It is a direct and sure-fire path to enlightenment and inner peace.
The Disappearance of the Universe is fun, engaging, and well-written. It's also powerfully revealing. If you're ready for it, it's something you will come to treasure and re-read. The provocative truth rewards revisiting on a regular basis. I've personally read the book 17 times, and find new and deeper comprehension each time. It's a book whose concepts, if taken to heart, understood, and followed, will last you an entire lifetime. It's the end of the seeker's road, the final answer, the last teachings you'll need -- the truth, the full truth, and nothing but the truth.
