The subtitle Reminders for the advanced soul reminds us that when reading a book, we usually take away the information and lessons we need to learn So this handbook goes a step further as it has no page numbers and the reason for this is, that the book will open to the page on which the reader may find guidance or the answers to doubts and questions in his mind It s been a while since I read the book but I recall a metaphor at the beginning of the book that describes that those little pebbles of [...]
Keep this in my office and use it for daily inspirations If you read illusions, this book will allow you to continue thinking outside of the box.
I found this book while I was searching in the library for just any book by Richard Bach.To know what it was about, I flipped open some page in the middle, and found the whole page blank, except just one line written in the center It read Your depth of intimacy with another is inversely proportional to the number of others in your life I gave this a thought, and I found it impressive it was really true And on the back cover, the line that caught my eyes was Open it, and whatever you need to know [...]
This little book will always live in my bag, just in case I need a reminder.
My current handbok.
Great thoughts and message Excellent to read first thing in the morning or before bed, to keep your mind in check Favorite author.
A fun book to have, if you have read illusions Not very useful otherwise
I haven t read this book per say, but I have opened it several occasions where I needed a word and this book often than not gave me exactly what I wanted to hear I remember Illusions where the Don Shimoda tells Richard to take this book, open any page and it ll be the advice he needed He called it the magic book aka the Messiah s Handbook.And I love magic.
This 2004 book by Richard Bach, is connected to his other book, Illusions In that book Richard author meets Donald Shimoda, a pilot and a messiah , who teaches Richard how the world works, particularly that things around us and the reality are mere illusions In that book Donald and later also Richard use a book this book which has no page numbers and has a single thought written on each page The purpose of this is that the reader may ask a question, close eyes, select a page and read the answer [...]
My paternal grandfather, and in turn, my dad, shared a mortal fear of anyone getting a swelled head Pride was the greatest sin in their book Which raises the interesting question in my mind does saying you re the messiah automatically disqualify you Is it possible to have an accurate sense of your self importance if you re a prophet I raise this because Bach appears to be a man who has raised his own journey for enlightenment above the concerns of everyone else, particularly those who might expe [...]

OK, so it might be helpful to do some research into this guy s real life before you start buying into his advice I wish I had known what I know now before I read and bought into his other books.The only part of Messiah that he seems qualified to write about is the first four letters.Not that I am any better But, then, I wouldn t write a book titled The Messiah s Handbook I am just trying to poke a hole through this guy s bubble of pride and allow in a little truth for those of you looking at the [...]

Now by rights I should go back and slide everything I ve rated back one star Edit Ha That was dramatic Actually, no Not true.This book introduced me to what I thought was the fundamentals of stoicism, and reminded me in a timely fashion about the importance of believing in your own visions And self And personal power and responsibility and stuff Liked a lot.
These lessons are amazing they come in handy in every situation you have This book has secrets within it s pages which allow you to look at reality much differently than you would before It also helps you out when you need a wake up call and need to realize that it is everyone s world and everyone s choice The one thing that you have to remember when you ve completed the book is that everything in that book may be wrong.
Messiah s Handbook Reminders for the Advanced Soul by Richard Bach Hampton Roads Publishing 2004 Fiction General Everything in this book may be wrong, we are told early in this volume Apparently, the answer to any question you pose is in this slim volume ask a question, open the book at random, and read either left or right page You try My rating 7 10, finished 7 21 14.
This book was inspired by the Messiah s handbook from the book Illusions, also by Richard Bach This book is designed along the ideas of bibliomancy, where you ask yourself or the universe a question, and turn to a random page for your answer.Every time I use this book, I feel a little better about everything.
This is not one you read cover to cover either but have handy for those pestering questions you just need answers to And most often the answers are things you already know and don t want to hear but it s nice reassurance all the while
Short book of inspirational sayings supposedly written down from one of the characters in Richard Bach s novel Illusions Thoughtful and insightful moving readers to believe that anything is possible.
We usually do such a game with this book you imagine a question in your head, to whom you want to have answer Than you say the number of page witch other person is opening, you read it and there s answer to the question It is always right
This little book goes everywhere with me It s a fun book of reminders for advanced souls or thought provoking tidbits for less mindful readers It will always mean something particularly special to me.
So you want to be a Messiah This book is written for you to dip into at random each day, rather than to be read from cover to cover in the usual manner Each page reminds you of something thaat matters to a Messiah DIY
messiah s handbook
An essential read to be paired with Illusions.
