In God Doesn’t Do Anything, Ms. Packard moves away from God as concept object to whom we owe religious adoration and toward an experience of God as Pure Essence, having the power to change who we are as we divest ourselves of egotistic energy.
This essence which can be felt as God Presence brings the soul alive. She further believes that the self can then experience itself in a more integrated way and becomes more responsible for its own being. Defenses wane and the person becomes more open and accepting of his own experiences. He accepts himself as the locus of his evaluations, realizing that no one has a monopoly on Truth. His decisions are guided by love rather than archaic rules and regulations.

Finally Ms. Packard offers some tips that have proven useful to her over the years in accomplishing her goals in hope that the reader may be able to profit by her experience.
