I hope you enjoyed the first chapter of A Better Idea of God.
In the following months I’ll keep the chapters coming both from my new book, A Better Idea of God, and How to Get There, as well as from my previous book, Playing 20 Questions with God. A Cosmic Self-Repair Manual. If you like the ideas and transmissions, and I’m sure most of you will, please do me the honor of sending them along to friends you know who might also be interested in them, also inviting them to join my mailing list and forward the chapter to their friends.
During the past 3 years, as I’ve been recovering from my second brain surgery, it’s become very clear that it’s time for me to vigorously share the gifts that have been given to me. Please enjoy the second chapter from A Better Idea of God.
