Title: Make Love to the Universe
Author: Phoenix Desmond
Review: This book was about a journey the author took with a spirit, he traveled through the Himalayas looking for the Master. He found many who were filled with negative feelings that brought more negative into their lives, and he met those who were filled with positive energy bringing more positive into their lives and those they loved. The idea that love can cure most of the ills that ails us made me think. The more we relax and are at peace with life around us, the healthier we are. I would agree with that, stress makes us ill and keeps us from enjoying life.
The experiences he describes are a bit mystical and sound almost drug induced at times. The Baba’s that travel around without food or money, but depended on others to take then in for the night, he referred to this as the universe providing the basics of life to all who would seek it. Yet I will be negative for a moment and wonder that if the people willing to feed and shelter the Baba’s did not themselves work, then who would care for all the wanderers. Someone needs to work someone’s needs to be responsible with everyday life and not just take off and hope someone is there to care for them. I’m sure that the author would tell me I needed to work on my energy flow and trust the universe to provide what I needed, but I think you get what I’m saying.
This is a short fast book to read and I think I will try the meditation he suggests. If you are looking for something different in your life this may be the book for you.
Quotes in the book I found interesting: “If you wish for others to be happy, focus on achieving happiness within yourself, until the vibrations you carry become so strong that they inspire all who are touched by their waves. This will encourage the expansion of happiness into their hearts.”
“Whenever you foster unity in your interactions with your relatives, you are making love to the universe.”
I will be offering this book on Goodreads Swap.

Synopsis: In Make Love to the Universe, Phoenix Desmond recounts his experience walking the Himalayas under the guidance of compassionate spirits from Sirius. With their assistance, he returns to an ancient way of life remarkably similar to that of the Buddha, abandoning both his possessions and preconceptions to live among the poorest of poor in India. Written from the perspective of both Phoenix and the accompanying Sirians, this fast-paced, captivating narrative traces their quest to find Master babaji, an immortal being capable of eliminating suffering. Along the way, the Sirians employ the vivid imagery of Phoenix's natural surroundings to reintroduce the universal language of the heart—a method of perception that enables us to use spheres of energy to instantly connect with any life-form. The practical, heart-centered exercises they offer are intended to aid in the global transition towards a unified collective, and can be applied by anyone.
A unique blend of humorous storytelling, powerful channeling, and insightful observation, Make Love to the Universe offers a blueprint for a human experience that is both harmonious and fulfilling. Those who take the plunge with Phoenix into the depths of love will find that while his journey was extraordinary, both the struggles he endured, and the triumphs he celebrated were not unlike those we encounter in our everyday lives.
