Take Me to Truth is the first book to boldly address the fundamental problem that all spiritual seekers face on the journey to awakening; the ego. Take Me to Truth is a powerful six-stage navigational guide that takes us through the six remarkable stages of undoing ego. Each of these stages becomes an experience of deepening trust, eventually removing all existing blocks to the awareness of the Infinite Love that we are and have. It bridges the yawning gap that exists between seeking enlightenment and finding it.
Take Me To Truth: Undoing the Ego
By S. K. Dubel "author, caterer" - August 20, 2007
This is it! Finally, the difference between seeking enlightenment and actually living it. I have been a student of ACIM for many years, and the philisophy of this great great book seemed to remain somewhat elusive, to me. After reading both of Gary Renard's books, the meaning became a delicious surprise and finally, I found the God I was looking for, yesss!!! (Also, very important to me, I did not want to morph into some kind of new-age, born-again, in your face Christian, screeching my philosophy, while not living the truth. And amazingly enough, that did not happen. My family, friends and acquaintances just keep noticing that I have become much kinder, calmer and happier, not such a bad thing.) I am now on my 3rd reading of Take Me To Truth and am delightfully amazed that every single time, I am led to a new level of not only awareness, but how to take that awareness into the world we are now existing in, and live it. I believe I have read almost every self-help, spiritual,... read more
Tremendous distillation of ACIM principles...and more
By Irishboy - August 24, 2007
I echo the previous reviewer's sentiments. I, too, am a long time student of A Course in Miracles and it remains my central spiritual path. However, as every ACIM student knows, this massive tome, albeit a spiritual masterpiece, can be a bit unwieldy and obtuse (ya think?). How refreshing it is to discover a book which presents solid Course teaching in a new and much more accessible form. While I'm sure that the authors of this book would agree that there is no substitute for in-depth study of the source material, it is nonetheless a welcome respite to have these timeless principles restated in plain english. That is not to imply a "watering down" of the Course material. In fact, just the opposite is the case. Reading this book has given me fresh insights that I am anxious to take back to my study of the Course.
All in all, it's a wonderfully thought out and very well-written introduction to ACIM and to the newly emerging Wisdom Tradition as well.
While it's clear from the many five-star reviews that this book is valuable to many people, I would suggest that it may not be "right" for ACIM purists. The authors avoid many of the key terms in ACIM in an apparent attempt to remove any traditional "religious" references. In addition, it interjects several techniques, such as the Enneagram, that reinforce the perception of separateness and individuality.
With all that is good about the book, if you are put-off by restatements of ACIM principles in more "acceptable" (and therefore less accurate) language, Take Me To Truth probably isn't for you.
Disappearance of the Universe and Your Immortal Reality address many of the same everyday issues, while staying true to the language of the Course. Books and CDs by Ken Wapnick work directly with the words of the course to illuminate their meaning in our lives. I would recommend these for those who wish a more direct route to understanding ego's control over our lives.
