1.0 out of 5 stars Successful Mass-Marketing Manipulation, 9 Dec. 2011
I cannot understand why this book has so many good reviews - it really is just five to ten words per page in big print, saying NOTHING new and original EG: 'Say no instead of yes'. What with the few dreadful cartoons scribbled here and there - I really did find this book an insult to Personal Development. This is typical 'New Age' hype, very, very cleverly packaged, branded and shipped out to the shallow masses - who are more than happy to pay for it.

Hay House should be ashamed of themselves.

1.0 out of 5 stars Spiritual Materialism in Action, 2 Oct. 2011
I so wanted to enjoy this book but sadly found it to be very shallow and the author does nothing for women's liberation. She portrays women as 'girly' 'ditzy' and, well, just a bit stupid. I am amazed that so many females seem to have enjoyed this and haven't actually noticed the stereotyping, albeit if this is actually Elizabeth's life as it is non-fiction after all.

The potential in this story is huge but it simply fails to deliver from a heart level. It is just an awful mass of Elizabeth's left-brain rambling that continues after her so-called 'enlightenment' - an absurd word to be using under these painful circumstances.

I battled it out to the end, so wanting to join Elizabeth as she truly woke up to her delusion but all I found was what genuine spiritual masters call 'Spiritual Materialism'. Take a look at the book of the same name by Chogyam Trungpa.

Hey this is my opinion and obviously in the minority so maybe you will enjoy this book. I didn't and was left sad, deflated and just a little disillusioned with the human race.

5.0 out of 5 stars At Last - the true meaning of Tantra!, 3 April 2009
I am always moved and challenged by Chogyam Trungpa for he dares to be honest in his teaching the West. Here this Great Master dispels the many myths around Tantra and strongly suggests NOT to even go there if you can help it! How many spiritual teachers say this? There is only one brief mention of sex in here; where of course Chogyam tells us that it is not about sex; a huge misconception that many Westerners (including practitioners!) make. This groundbreaking book I sense will not be very popular; simply becasue it tells it as it is and few people want the truth about spirituality - it is hard work, it hurts, there is no hope and sex doesn't really have anything to do with it! Read this genuine masterpiece at your peril and be prepared for it to challenge and disperse all your previous 'beliefs.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for believers!, 3 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apparitions [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
If you like something quirky and have an over active imagination - this is the series for you! I was told before I watched it that it was 'far fetched' and indeed it is, but then that is what I like, something that pushes the boundaries and dares to risk far reaching places in order to entertain the audience. Although 'fiction' if you look into it further it also makes some valid points that are accurate; such as the 'possession' of Mother Therasa just before her death, the visions her followers had afterwards and it also tackles issues such as gay men in the Catholic church and challenges the misuse of power by Rome and the struggle Priests have to do certain parts of their job. But above all this; it is fun, shocking and a tad scary in places. Enjoy!
