The Universe Is Calling: Opening to the Divine Through Prayer by Eric Butterworth
The Universe is Calling addresses the growing need for understanding and clarity regarding the function and nature of prayer. Taking the problems with traditional prayer to their roots, Eric Butterworth asserts that our fundamental concept of God must change before we can experience true connection with the divine. Instead of prayer to an imperialistic and remote God, Butterworth encourages praying from the shared consciousness of God. He outlines principles that enable entrance into the stream of God-consciousness, and offers techniques that act as universal guidelines for both interpersonal communication and spiritual living.
