5 Stars – Priceless Primary “Reader”

I am in the middle of some sort of spiritual convergence in which everything I have learned up to this point in my 67 years of life is coming together centered on a new understanding of the indivisibility of God, consciousness, energy, and the Cosmos including what some call extraterrestrials, others call angels and demons, I choose to call advanced forms of energy with higher levels of love. Ethics — and patriotism — are central to my reflections.

5 Star — A Novel that Inspires Reflection

In this one book, Nora Maccoby has brought together some of the most important ideas related to extra-terrestrial intelligence, human intelligence, and cosmic intelligence – everything is a form of energy with inherent intelligence. As a former spy who is also a top Amazon non-fiction reviewer, reading in 98 categories, it has taken me decades to achieve a diversified understanding that this one book offers any reader. The author has melded a vast potpourri of nested concepts of intelligence, consciousness, and universalism. I found this book gripping, enchanting, and uplifting. Have you ever wanted your own personal Star Gate? You have it in your hands.

5 Star — The Bible As Jesus Intended — for All, Not Some

From the Foreword by Walter Brueggemann:

QUOTE (xv): Thus, almost all of the information (misinformation that we receive in the West is filtered through Zionist ideologicial interest that holds in thrall much of the Christian community in the United States and consequently that holds in thrall US policy as well. In that articulation the current plight of Palestinians is kept invisible and the legitmate claims of Palestinians, ground in historical and social reality, are left without articulation.

QUOTE (xvii): Ateek’s reading of the Christian gospel is a move from “some” to “all,” a rejection of privileged tribalism, and a prospect for a just peace in which all parties may participate.

QUOTE (xix): This book is a venture in truth-telling advocacy.

There are three take-aways:
