Publisher's Summary

What would you do if you were sitting quietly in your living room when a mysterious couple suddenly appeared from out of nowhere, and then told you they were "ascended masters" who had come to reveal some shocking secrects of existence and teach you the miraculous power of advanced forgiveness? Would you call the cops? Call a psychiatrist? Call out for pizza?When two such teachers appeared before Gary Renard in 1992, he chose to listen to them. (And ask a lot of questions.) The result is this startling audiobook: An extraordinary record of 17 mind-bending conversations that took place over nearly a decade, reorienting the author's life, and giving the world an uncompromising introduction to a spiritual teaching destined to change human history.

Positively Great

While some may find the concept of reincarnation and the absence of time and physical reality hard to understand, this book is in my opinion one of the ten greatest books ever written. It fits very well with future students being introduced to "A Course In Miracles".

Some may be disturbed by the story as many have been programmed with a certain God fearing dogmatic mindset that this book contradicts. If you want to learn that GOD is love you must hear this. It is very believable because even the author makes judgemental statements and is redirected in his thinking by these teachers.
They do not always agree with his preconcieved notions and do state things in an understandable way. It is humorous at times as the teachers have a few witty answers and comments and leads to a surprise ending.

Having read the printed version twice then listening to this again is a positive life changing experience.

Solid Content With Bad Form

I already read the text prior to purchasing the audio book, so my expectations as to the content were already set. The book reads quickly (took me about a day) and its message is solid. In contrast, the audio book (in my opinion) is rather loathsome to listen to. Something was certainly lost in the translation from print to audio.

As another reviewer mentioned, the person who plays the part of Arten has a radio announcer voice; while Pursah is played by Doreen Virtue, a familiar voice (if one listens to Hay House Radio). I think those two factors diminished the content considerably. They took away from the message more than they gave.

The only believable person in the audio book is Gary Renard himself. Then again, it was he who had the actual experience; not the other two.

However, as I considered it, I realized that this was one of those situations where I would be called upon to forgive. Could it have been done better? Without question it could have. Yet how many of us could have done it perfectly? Probably none.

Let this be a lesson to us all who seek the Truth: We screw up even the purest of messages with our own hands, try as we might to do otherwise. It is almost inevitable. Best to forgive it and take the content of what we're given; leaving the form behind.

If you're averse to reading a 150,000 word book, this audio format is just fine. The content is all there, just as it is in the book, and the audio quality is high and well recorded. But if you've heard Doreen and the other guy before, one can't help but be distracted by them.

I think the author should seriously consider redoing this book using real actors; perhaps ones with a heavy spiritual inclination, in order to capture the essence of not only the message, but of his overall experience.
