    Not sure what exactly I was expecting from this book, but it wasn t what I expected I learned about it within the context of reading The Lotus and the Lily This book takes 15 well known teachings of Jesus from the New Testment and presents them in text from the King James Version of the Bible, then in Aramaic the language of Jesus , then an interpretaton, then a section on the meaning of specific words Following this is reference to a CD with music and a guided body meditation as well.I read the book on my Kobo so didn t have access to the images or music.There is some good historical context in this book that made me realize how much of the interpretation of the Bible I am familiar with but only from the Greek interpretation of the original Aramaic and that the Greek interpretation or writing came long after the time Jesus lived in.So a revelation to me is the fact that during Jesus time there was no concept of eternal damnation in hell that all came later with the Greeks Hmmm.Another revelation to me is that the word for Sacred Unity God in Aramaic is Alaha Pretty close to Allah isn t it The quoted text from the Lotus and the Lily book that drove me to read this book was this When we pursue a right relationship with the Universal One and allow this relationship to realign our lives, we produce a condition of receptivity in which anything we need to help us complete our purpose in life will be supplied by the universe So I found the source of that and that is why I read this book.

    I have attended Neil s workshops in Columbus for the past 4 years Two years ago, when the workshop was based on this book I was going through a very difficult time One of the first beatitudes we went through was, Blessed are ye when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man s sake Neil entitles this chapter A Particularly Bad Day The morning before the workshop started was a particularly bad day, the weekend was a blessing Hearing Neil speak of the Aramaic words of Jesus brings a whole new light of understanding and peace I would recommend all of his books, and not only that, attend his workshops if you can.

    I really enjoyed the various translations based on the original Aramaic The idea of the book is really good, and I was very excited to be able to join in the prayers with the 80min CD included I was hugely disappointed by the prayer songs The were extremely western and reminded me of a hippie string party, rather than authentic near eastern prayer songs He should have stayed true to the theme of reaching back into this time period Instead, the CD ruins the feeling, and also casts skepticism and doubt around the genuineness of his entire study.
