It was in 1987 that Rasha, the author, awakened to her inner calling as a conduit of Divine guidance. Rasha, with an affinity for India and northern Mexico, continues to document her teachings of Oneness. The book under review carries a collection of her talks given at various forums.
As the Divine wisdom of Oneness guided her step-by-step through the agonies and evaluation of an experiential voyage to God-realisation, Rash painstakingly documented the principles that lay the foundation for a new brand of understanding of the phenomenon called ?life?.
In her first dialogue with Oneness, she asked, ?What is Oneness? Are you God??
The reply that she received was, ?As the drop of water is to the ocean?that is what Oneness is. The essence of the drop is every bit the essence of the totality. As you would understand God to be?yet we are God. We are Oneness.? She adds that we all are the embodiment of the God force, as everybody is. What is or is not has come to be the focus of considerable speculation. Some would have us believe that what we perceive as reality is merely an illusion. Though our perceptions are symbolic representations of the thought forms that precipitate them, they are most decidedly real. Some of the major highlights of her talks are as follows:
When we see the reality, the Divine wisdom of Oneness, we get to know the nature of our unlimited state of being without having read about it in books or hearing the concepts spoken by those who herald visions and prophecies of a new paradigm. We will defer to no one as we come to be empowered and we experience ourselves as the aspect of Oneness that we, indeed, are.
Rasha says that there comes a point in life when we reach a saturation point when we are ready to walk out on all of what life gives. ?For clearly, the way it is?is not working.? That is the moment we have been waiting for. For until we have nothing left to lose and nothing left to gain, ?by continuing in your ingrained patterns, you do not have the catalyst for initiating a radical change.? Until that moment our circumstances will continue to depict examples after examples of the life themes on which we have been working all this time. And after we have become aware of what is really happening, our life circumstances will continue to provide for us the testing conditions that ?can be the springboard for transcending those patterns.?
A book on spirituality meant for those who have reached a higher plane in life.
