Eric Butterworth first wrote this book forty years ago, but do not let that put you off. I actually cannot believe I am the first to review this fantastic piece of work and it is an honour, as this book could be life changing for you - it has been for me.
To put this review into context, I am on a spiritual path and well read in the likes of the Tolles, Walsch's, Chopra's etc which are all great works, but none of them moved me liked this book.
Do not be put off by the title, this is not some self help book it is in fact putting the true interpretations of Jesus' teaching in a new light away from religious doctrine and religions that I'm afraid in today's society, do more to drive people away from god than towards.
When you truly appreciate the messages from Jesus they are beautiful, timeless and actually point to the divinity within each of us. You also see just how close Jesus teachings were to the messages of Buddhism and Hinduism which is love, compassion and the awakening of the divine consciousness within us.
I have never been interested in organised religion, but growing up in the west and I guess you could say within "Christian society", we are indoctrinated in Christianity to some extent almost subliminally. This book takes the veil off all that and bathes you in the true light of what Jesus was really saying and is a perfect complement to the likes of Eckhart Tolles work. In fact is through Eckhart Tolles recommendation that I found this book.
Do youself a huge favour and get this little book and I say to you "Namaskar !" (Read the book to find out)
