Review

“This book changed my perspective on life and religion. Eric Butterworth teaches that God isn’t ‘up there.’ He exists inside each one of us, and it’s up to us to seek the divine within.” (Oprah Winfrey)

“A wonderful book...truly a life-changer, as many readers know. This book really does release the power within us all.” (Norman Vincent Peale)

“For many, this book will be an answer in itself. For many more, it will open doors to ever-richer depths.” (Ira Progoff, Founder, Intensive Journal Program for Self Development)

By John P. Morgan VINE VOICE on December 27, 2005
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?

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.

What can I say about this book? Eric Butterworth was a legend in the Unity movement. He was a Unity minister for many, many years. For those of you not familiar with Unity, this is not a problem. You can still glean so much knowledge and advice from this book. The insights and Truth that is found in these pages will change your life! This book really speaks to the true nature of Jesus the Christ and who he really was. What is Christ Consciousness? And what are princples of Truth? What does the Bible say about reincarnation? Past lives? How do we live to our true, full and glorious potential? All these questions are answered in this book. This book really helps us to 'come up higher' and listen to that 'still, small voice' inside us. It teaches us that all God wants for us is ultimate good! It teaches us about Divine Order and how God is constantly working with us to help us reach our highest good! Oprah has read this book and was moved. Maya Angelou writes a beatiful preface, calling Butterworth her mentor and spiritual teacher. Even if you have never heard of Unity, don't let that discourage you from reading this book. Who knows? Maybe you'll be more interested in Unity after this book and want to learn more! This is truly a life-changing book and has changed the way I think about our brother and way-shower, Jesus. This is a must read!

This motivational, inspirational, spiritual, enlightening and mind expanding book was written about "What did Jesus really teach?" It is based on the teachings of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, founders of the Unity Movement, and "Lessons in Truth" by Emilie Cady. Although anyone from any religious background can practice the Unity principles, the interpretation of Bible and Jesus's teachings in this book and "Lessons in Truth" are quite different than mainstream Christianity.

It is interesting that when I checked the reviews, there were two people who gave one star to this book. The first person didn't like it because "it was too religious" and the other one claimed "there was not enough religion in it." Unity is called "spirituality without dogma" and the Unity publications are highly motivational writings intertwined with metaphysical Christianity. Unity principles, also the content of this book, are as follow:

1. God is love, all good and the only source of our prosperity (Prosperity includes our emotional, mental, and spiritual as well as physical needs). He is omnipotent, omniscience and omnipresent.
2. Humans are made in God's image. Therefore, we all have Holy Spirit living in us.( the Divinity of Man)
3. What we dwell on is what we bring more of in our lives. Positive thinking brings positive results. (Energy flows where mind goes)
4. In order to be healthy mentally, physically and spiritually, we need to be connected to our Creator with regular prayer.
5. Affirmative prayer (Instead of pleading and bargaining with God, being grateful and thanking God for the answered prayer before it is answered) brings positive results.

If you are working on personal-growth and spiritual enlightenment, this is the book for you.
