Using the fundamentals of A Course in Miracles, Seeing Beyond Illusions walks us through a gentle dismantling of the dualistic lie of separation, freeing us from our unconscious guilt at having forsaken Source by learning to trust our divine connection to all that is. At its core, this book is about letting go of our need and urge to control, freeing ourselves to embrace forgiveness, and experience the reality of our profound connection with others.

The easiest of easygoing spiritual coaches, David Cowan has a gift for synthesizing wisdom as old as Jesus and as cutting-edge as neuroscience, his writing is infused with an all-encompassing relevance that heals.

My thoughts:

Wonderfully paced and easy to read, Cowan’s “Seeing Beyond Illusion” is 17 chapters of brilliance. Like Ken Carey’s Foreword, I felt as if Cowan were putting my own thoughts on the page as I read. Of course, it was Cowan skillfully setting the table.

By misrepresenting the Divine through their own limited and anthropomorphic projections, human dualistic religions turn those who were awakening to new vistas of human potential through education and science away from a truly integrated and natural spirituality.

I really enjoyed this thought-provoking book and posted some of the quotes on Facebook as I was reading it. “Seeing Beyond Illusion” is a must-have for your spiritual home library. I give the book 5 stars out of 5.


Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this ebook free from Weiser Books. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
