Walking though Illusion is a series of stories about biblical people who either knew Jesus or knew of him, and were influenced by him in one way or another. It is more of an emotional accounting than a historical accounting and posits how the characters might have felt about Jesus, how they might have reacted to his choices, and how they might have grown from doing so. Walking through Illusion is not about Christianity; it is about people who lived long before Christianity began. The message appeals to people of any faith who seek a better understanding of their own spirituality.
The concept, walking through illusion, refers to the idea that we come here in our bodies to experience matter (or that which is temporary) to recognize what was real (or that which is felt). The book suggests that action/reaction, cause and effect, or whatever you want to call the pulling of energy back to itself, is a force that runs our lives. And since this force can be used in whatever way we direct it, we have the power to create a better life through it.
Next week, my guest will be Craig Hamilton, author of Broken Open, a beautiful, honest & remarkable memoir about his amazing journey and survival with his diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Craig is an ABC broadcaster in Australia and will be calling us from “down under” to enlighten all of us on managing bipolar disorder and living life to the fullest!
