This book serves as a note of encouragement for our times. The Celtic
view of the meaning of "Christ" delivers a message based on experience
over the beliefs that have so long muddied the lives of many people. JPN
brings the experience of Christ to a universal audience. He says that "the
image of God is at the core of our being. And like the Garden, it has not
been destroyed. It may have become covered over or lost sight of, but
it is at the beginning of who we are." Modern non-dual teachings, both
inside and outside of religions, involve this direct approach to the
experience of recognizing ourselves, or the identity of "I." We are not
the identity which our cultures and religions and science keep saying
we are. And the amazing thing is that our own experience, if we carefully
refer to it, will tell us that we are indeed that which JPN says we have
covered over or lost sight of. Paul Cezanne, the painter, said much
the same thing: "The time will come when a single carrot, freshly
observed, will set off a revolution." John Philip Newell is an igniter
of this revolution in each of us!
