One of the techniques Butterworth explains is to Relax, Let Go, and Let God be God in us. The relaxing part is often the missing link for many. I think of it as giving ourselves over in trust to Him. Butterworth also speaks of the power of group prayer, something I'm part of and always find an amazing experience. His "Praying for Others" chapter was also a heart opener, where we are asked to remove our worry from the situation before turning to the divine for an answer. Not easy, but if we truly trust in Him we can establish ourselves in that love that will envelop whoever we are concerned about and establish them in the healing flow. The wonderful thing about this process is that it can work within any religious context, and is what, I believe, Jesus was trying to teach all along.
On a personal note, I have been on several Unity retreats with Eric and Olga Butterworth and loved both their teaching and their loving presence. Continuing the journey, I present my own related spiritual teaching in a work of fiction, Dreality: A story about returning home, which tells of the journey from brokeness to wholeness and what life is all about from the viewpoint of those who have died and are now in heaven. There is no greater force on the planet than love, and the sooner each one of us makes knowing that love the most important thing in our lives, the sooner we can make our planet a true reflection of heaven.
The Universe Is Calling is a great personal journey to read and enjoy. Find a bookstore that has it and begin to read it. If it catches your attention, then buy it - enjoy.
This may not be a helpful review; but if you give the book it's due, you'll see why it's better for others to find out for themselves how good this book is and how helpful it is to your life.
I so appreciated Butterworth's research and the presentation of his arguements and I have recommended this book to many friends and relatives.
I read recently that Eric Butterworth passed away some years ago and I felt as though I had lost a friend.
