    1. I simply cannot recommend this book enough read it, let it soak, let the message saturate you and then go out and look at life, try to find it out there, because as great as this book is, it will not deliver you, you are already delivered, now wake up and live it!theopoetics.olterman/?p=14018

    2. In a way it pains me to only give this book 2 stars- it started off so wonderfully. I really appreciate a lot of what he's saying and found myself pretty encouraged in delightfully tangible ways, but the more I read the more annoyed I gott feels completely unorganized. I normally love books that's have lots of little sections but this just took it too far and felt kind of lazy. Like he wanted to get these thoughts out into the world but didn't want tot take the time to put together a normal book [...]

    3. I've read a lot of books on spirituality and Christianity (and Buddhism). Of all of the books I've read this is quite possibly the most practical one giving me things I think about as I'm going through my day, things that really help. If I could add anything to the subtitle of the book it would be "Just Do It". Ending your suffering isn't complicated- it is maybe a little bit difficult. It's really a matter of realizing your true nature and the nature of the universe and continually reminding yo [...]

    4. The book is a bit different from the author’s earlier ones; it’s not so much a coherent account but a mixture of notes, based on his journals during a period of intense reflection on his life and faith. I found the first section annoying; not only was it repetitive, but it read like one of those scam adverts that keep insisting that we need to know (or buy, or do…) the One Thing that will change our lives without saying what that thing is. And it kept telling me I think this or believe tha [...]

    5. About finding and understanding your true Self which is ultimately your soul containing the peace, love, and oneness with God (Truth) you have always had. However, the mind is incapable of grasping this Truth. Therefore, this can only be achieved by ridding oneself of human constructs, pre-existing systematic religious beliefs, and cognitive thinking. It appears Palmer has taken a Christian worldview and seemingly meshed it with Eastern mystical ideas. Overall, it is a decent read, but a bit rep [...]

    6. If you are sensitive and like to 'keep the peace' and not 'rock the boat', then please stay far away from this book.Otherwise, if you are open-minded and Christian please read thisAtheist and think Jesus and Christians are dumbasses, please read this.If you were Christian/are Christian, or if you're searching and checking out the church and if you feel a bit uneasy about things please read this.If you are tired of the bullsh*t and just want to face up to your own Truth, break down your barrie [...]

    7. Honestly, THE most riveting and confirming book that I've have ever read to this date! I purchased several copies as Christmas gifts! So many members of my family, after having long traditions in religion, are feed up and tired with its limitations. My phone has been blowing up with people thanking me for this book. I simply don't have the words to express the beauty of this point CAUTION: if you read this with your mind and not your heart, you'll never get it! This book is not an exercise oft h [...]

    8. I love all of Jim Palmer's books. This one I just absolutely could not put down. It resonated deeply with my spirit. Honest, authentic, beautifully written truth about life. Are you suffering in any way? Then this book will help you understand how to free yourself from suffering. A must read!

    9. Awesome, in every respect! I'm now signed up with Jim for a 21 day cohort group, to discuss and explore some of the ideas in this book.
