Lists with This Book. Jan 17, Kim Ezpeleta rated it it was amazing.
If you’re ready – you get it! And you keep it in your purse – on your nightstand. I’m reading again now. Blown away by this.
Never leaves my mind. High level spiritual writing. Jan 11, Kareem Shihab rated it it was amazing. Here is the deal with this book. Its a bit of a confusing read at first and even throughout, but once you understand in form is which it is written it is quite eye opening. Don’t be put off by the fact that he uses words like christ consciousness and other religious jargon, this book is about understanding the self and approaches the idea of non-divergent thought as the essence of life.
Other people might call it living in the present but this book was written way before all those new agey terms Here is the deal with this book. Other people might call it living in the present but this book was written way before all those new agey terms were used for this ancient wisdom.
Trust that thought and being trapped in the mind is not the best way to live day to day, but rather let life flow through in the absesnce of compulsive thought trust that when something comes up you will be able to make the correct decision. Jun 17, Fernando rated it it was amazing.
Benner goes impersonql beyond imagination and deep into the impersonal self everyone has in them. His explanation is by far the most profound, logic and credible one I have ever heard and felt.
The Impersonal Life
In this book he writes as if it is yourself talking to yourself. The way he describes the impersonal self of each one goes straight to a point of wisdom and enlightenment. To read this book one must definitely have had to go through a series of self experience moments. To analyze what he is saying and really fee Benner goes way beyond imagination and deep into the impersonal self everyone has in them.
To analyze what he is saying and really feel it as if it was you, yourself and no one else impersobal this imperdonal is the great teaching of this book. Reading and focusing on his meaning and what he was trying to transcend has been a peak experience I would never forget. Finding yourself in yourself deep inside. The answer to all the questions lies oife your awareness and thinking.
Your impersonal self is everything and everyone. Feeling the presence of the whole universe inside you and you in all the universe. Apr 27, Ann Lynda rated it it was amazing. I keep having to buy new copies because I give this to everyone who might find it interesting – the root from which benjer ‘spiritual’ impereonal have sprung, brilliant. Aug 04, Joyce rated it it was amazing. The language is a little confusing and the book is fairly repetitive this is done on purpose but what is contained in the pages is neither contradictory nor complex.
It explains what is essential from the Bible, though it is a book of universal spirituality, not religion. You will learn about the true nature of the world and impersoal what your and everyone else’s purpose is. The final chapters are essential for application. If you are ready, you will understand. If not, continue to live yo The language is a little confusing and the book is fairly repetitive this is done on purpose but what is contained in the pages is neither liffe nor complex.
If not, continue to live your life, but keep the book around.
You’ll come back to it eventually when the time is right. Aug 20, Dana rated it it was amazing Shelves: Simply a beautiful book about the Creator, and our role in life. May 28, Michelle Cantrell rated it it was amazing.
This is one of those books that you have to be ready to receive the message. If it is hard to understand then set it aside and read at another time. Nov 10, Jackie St Hilaire rated it it was amazing. The divine manifested in you. It has been said that Elvis Presley had this book close by for every day meditation, that impersonnal gave away copies to family and friends.
Next to the Bible, Elvis pondered these words every day. Written in and authored Anonymous, imperosnal author who was a Lutheran pastor did not want to be recognized. This is a small book The divine manifested in you. This is a small book only 90 pages but it will open up vistas within you.
But beware of going too fast on your spiritual journey, you can’t jump hoops, you can’t get ahead of God.
Once you have searched and found the ultimate truth that has been within you since birth, it will take time for you to discern what exactly you should be doing and doing is just what you should stop. God cannot possibly work within you if you are moving too fast.
Slow and easy wins the race but not too slow that you miss the opportunity to make a difference in your surroundings. Paul says in Philippians 3: Discernment will come through the Holy Spirit, oftentimes very subtle, you have to pay attention and not get too absorbed with your own thinking and desires.
This is a paradox because one cannot just sit around all day waiting for divine intervention, one has to move forward, take steps and stay connected within.
The outcome of each day will either give you rest and fulfillment or anxiety. You will know deep within if you have followed your true self. The Gospel of Thomas: If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you.
Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father.
But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty. I ordered the Kindle edition. Jan 14, Margaret rated it it was amazing.
My experience with this book is just Transcendent!!! All through the pages, I felt a Majestic Powerful Omniscient being is talking directly to me.

Jun 26, Brian Wilcox rated it really liked it. An inspiring guide, with a style cumbersome. The late author, a Lutheran clergyperson, presents a non-traditional approach to Christian teaching. His guidance can be understood in parallel with teachings from other traditions pointing to nonduality or no-self, or both, as well as the teachings of Joel Goldsmith.
The Impersonal, like Emptiness in Buddhism, is without-personality, and only one Self, meaning we do not have a soul each; the one Self, as ‘God’, is the Impersonal I Am. Christ is imper An inspiring guide, with a style cumbersome.
Christ is impersonal, we each are that same Impersonal.
