One Mind

Larry Dossey, M.D.

Self Improvement, Empowerment, Inspirational, Spirituality


Imagine a united consciousness, an awareness of which all of our minds are a part . . . and a potential way out of the division, greed, and destruction that threaten to engulf our world.

In the 20th century, we were introduced to several subdivisions of the mind: the conscious, unconscious, subconscious, preconscious, and so on. But what we didn't know was that there was another level of consciousness, an all-encompassing, infinite dimension of shared intelligence: the One Mind. This universal consciousness connects all of us through space and time. Even now, as you read these words, you are participating in the One Mind.

Emerging studies have shown that the One Mind isn't just an idea; it's a reality. In this book, Larry Dossey shares compelling research that supports the One Mind concept.

These cases include experiences of:

    Shared thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations with a distant individual
    Communication between humans and sentient nonhumans, such as pets
    Large groups of animals-flocks, schools, herds-behaving in highly coordinated ways
    Acquisition of previously unknown knowledge from a person who has died
    Hidden or lost objects found through mental means alone
    Direct contact with a transcendent domain through near-death experiences

Through engaging stories, fascinating case studies, and brilliant insights from great thinkers throughout history, One Mind explores the outer reaches of human consciousness. In it, you will discover a new way to interpret the great mysteries of our experience and learn how to develop the empathy necessary to engender more love, peace, and collective awareness. The result is a rich new understanding of what it means to be human and a renewed hope that we can successfully confront the challenges we face at this crossroads in human history.

With One Mind, Dossey shows that we are not alone, that we are all one.

One Mind, by Larry Dossey, M.D., is a well researched book containing vast amounts of evidence and case studies which explains that we are all droplets in a vast ocean of higher consciousness, in which we all have access. The stories contained in the book are interesting, touching on such subjects as entanglement, the twin connection and remote viewing.

On the downside, it reads very much like a textbook and, at least for me, was not an easy read. This is not a typical feel-good spiritual book. Nor is this a book on how to connect with universal consciousness. However, anyone serious about learning more about the subject of consciousness will find this book very worthwhile.

All of the case studies were very interesting and were similar to my own experience I had when I was nineteen. I was at work when all of a sudden I began to shake and cry uncontrollably. I knew something was wrong with my twin sister and was desperate to get a hold of her. Once I did, I found out that she had witnessed her boyfriend being attacked at the same time I was in distress. According to the author, this is an example of accessing the One Mind. Other such similar examples are found in this book and are truly fascinating.

This book demonstrates that we are all connected through a universal One Mind and that consciousness is real. And therefore, we all need to work together to solve the problems at this particular time. Hopefully, this book will aid in that noble goal.

One Mind: How Our Individual Mind is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why it Matters by Larry Dossey, M.D. explains that we are all part of one infinite consciousness referred to by the author as One Mind. This book is broken up into four sections which explain the concept of the One Mind. The four sections in this book are entitled: Glimpses of the One Mind, Working with The One Mind, Accessing the One Mind, and The Way Forward.

Throughout the four sections of this book we are given case studies and stories to show us how the One Mind works. We are also shown that we are all one. This book covers subjects on everything from twins to near death experiences and shows how these things relate to the One Mind.

Overall, I thought that One Mind by Larry Dossey was very informative and can show us that we are all part of a greater consciousness. I also think the four different sections are helpful in showing how One Mind works. My favorite part of this book showed how we access the One Mind through our dreams. The only criticism that I have for this book is that it reads like a textbook and can be hard to get through at times.

I acknowledge that I received this book from Hay House in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion of the book.

Larry Dossey's wonderful new work, "One Mind: How Our Individual Mind is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why it Matters", is so much more than just a book - its an inspiring, thought provoking collection of stories, studies, and true accounts that offer convincing evidence of the reality of the One Mind and how we are all connected to this "infinite dimension of shared intelligence" - how we are all really One.

Through fascinating looks at subjects such as coincidence, telepathy, animals moving as one, the animal/human bond, near death expreiences, reincarnation, communication with the deceased, savants, twins, remote viewing, and so much more, Larry brings the reader time and time again to the only logical conclusion - that we are all connected and that we can all have access to all that is, has been, or ever will be.

I especially enjoyed the chapter on dreams, which Larry describes as a "universal doorway to the One Mind", and was delighted to find a chapter titled, "Love is the Last Word". Larry teaches that love is "a gateway to the One Mind because love tempers the forces of isolation, separateness, and individuality." Larry concludes with a comforting reminder of our eternal connection to the One Mind and all that is.

As I read this book, I couldn't help but think of one of my favorite scriptures:
"...You have an unction from the Holy One, and know all things..."(1 John 2:20)... "One Mind" is a record of that "Holy One".
Get Larry's book and acquaint yourself with the ancient and eternal One Mind that we are all a part of, where all really is already known.
