          Here is a dialog specifically dealing with the content in my Book of Life: Ascension and the Divine World Order. The dialog covers a wide range of topics but in essence the discussion centers around the nature of The Book of Life as a summary statement of what is to come on the LP. I wrote the book ten years ago way before I had the level of knowledge I do now but even to this day the book remains a cogent and accurate statement of ideas and concepts since developed, and a spiritual and cosmological summary way ahead of its time. All in all a fascinating and interesting discussion, as some have commented over the years.
