Some books are like a wonderful fluffy dessert – they taste great and are fun to eat but offer little in the way of nutrition. The Oneness Gospel is a “meat and potatoes” book offering nourishment for both the mind and the soul. It is a book that needs to be read slowly and savored like you would savor a gourmet meal.
Proctor says the Oneness Teachings are for everyone and , indeed, they are regardless of gender, social status, religious affiliation or lack of a religious affiliation. Her teachings speak to the human mind, heart and soul. They allow us to talk about God again without the fear that we might offend someone and answer questions that we may not have raised in our own mind yet.
Her Chapters on “The Mind and Thought” and “Emotional Charges and Healing from Trauma” are the best I have read anywhere and, as a hypnotherapist, I have diligently studied both. If you read only these two chapters you will have been enriched. But you don’t want to miss what she says about ego, about suffering, and about heart centered awareness. Actually, Proctor touches on all those issues that are important to us and discusses them with brilliance.
In my view, she truly saved the best for last in the chapter on “Loving God.” If you sit with this chapter and read it meditatively you will never be the same and you won’t view yourself or those around you in the same way again. It will make your heart sing.
I recommend this book for those who are looking for more. To know what I mean by that – get the book.
