The Other Side of Silence: Meditation for the Twenty-First Century based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Morton has a strong grasp of Meditation. He also has respect for Eastern Religions. This book covers much on introspection and inner silence. It tells how to connect with one's own soul. To heal the heart. To explore the mind and master it. It teaches how to use imagination and prayer to explore the spiritual world. and to connect with Higher Powers and God. This is form of Christianity I respect. Reading it was a pleasure.
This book gets down to the nitty gritty of having a personal relationship with God. It was a rather difficult read for me though. It was originally used as a graduate level thelogoy text book some years ago at Notre Dame, and consequently reads like one. As a child it was thought that Morton Kelsey was retarded but one day in school one of his teachers realized that he was a genius. Ever since they stopped treating him like he was retarded and started treating him like a genius, he became one. Many people dabble in Eastern religions to find that sense of one-ness with the creator. This book teaches you how to shut up long enough to hear that God is screaming in our ears trying to get our attenttion. It takes practice but is very effective and powerful once mastered. If you're searching, if you're trying to find something to believe in, try this book. But be careful, it is an extremely overwhelming experience the first time you realize that God is sitting in the room next to you and you can speak to Him directly. If you can't stand the heat (bad pun, I know) stay out of the kitchen.
