Happier than God? A title that I couldn’t really take seriously! How can anyone or anything be more than something that is All That Is?

Neale Donald Walsch, author of several New Thought books, including the CwG series, is a favourite author of mine, but I thought I’d pass on this new one; somehow the title lacked the sophistication that an "important” work would have. However, I’m glad I remembered that you can’t always tell a book by its cover … or its title!

This work is a textbook, manual, guide, and expose`, all rolled into one valuable package.

The author gives a believable explanation of the idea that we can be happier than God. However, it’s not the only concept put forth in this work. So much about manifesting the affairs of our lives is dealt with here. If you resonated with the movie and book The Secret, you may find this work exciting. It gives more depth to the subject of Personal Creation, and helps to clear up possible misinterpretation or mistaken notions of this most important and wonderful aspect of human life – the process of creating, through the Energy (Law) of Attraction.

In his unique conversational style, Walsch does what he does best – explains the unexplainable. There are concepts and laws not covered in The Secret, and other works of this nature. He writes of the Law of Opposites, important to know about, if we’re discouraged with the process of consciously manifesting what we want.

Hints of the content of the book are in some chapter headings: The Great Principles of Life, Why Life Becomes Contrary, Why We Forget, and How, Why the Process of Creation Has Been Kept Under Wraps, and How to Use the Process of Personal Creation to help the Whole World.

If the above titles, or terms like Mystery Formula, Mechanisms of Manifestation, and Unspoken Truth intrigue you, this may be a book that you’ve been waiting for. It’s as if this writer has access to the minds and hearts of many, and responds to the questions therein.

At the beginning of his books, Walsch usually tells the reader that the reader has caused the book to be in his/her own hands; has attracted it, caused the awareness of it, is now reading it, and it has not all occurred by chance. Is it possible that this article is the prompting that you have arranged for?
