5.0 out of 5 stars Another face of Jesus, 17 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming Heart and Mind - a New Perspective on Christ and His Message (Paperback)
This is a truly inspiring read. It gets right to the heart of what Jesus was all about without the trappings of dogma and ritual. After all Jesus was not a Christian himself but brought up a Jew. The early church followers seemed to be more in tune with what he was really trying to say in his zen-like parables than we are today. We have lost something of the original essence in the West. After reading this book I would think anyone would desire to follow him.

The author gives a set of exercises at the back of the book to help the reader to tune into what Jesus was really saying. There is the activity of centering prayer and also the discipline of lectio divina amongst others. The reader is asked to experience the presence of God through surrender and letting go. It is all about taming the ego and moving away from the little self to understand the higher consciousness - a quantum leap of faith. It asks us to look at life from a perspective of non-duality.

Excellent. May this book grace the hands and bookshelves of many seekers and inspire them. There is much to be learnt from this book that looks at Jesus and his teachings in a new light. I am inspired.
