'Letter to Earth' is a brilliant and inspiring explanation of the nature of the Universe and our place as individuals within it. We are offered clear, intimate and accessible answers to questions most of us reluctantly accept as unanswerable: Is there a God? Why do people get sick, have diseases and suffer? How can we free our children from the patterns of the past? Why is it so hard to realise our dreams? What can be done to change the world? The answers that Elia Wise provides are ground-breaking and take into account the transformational role of consciousness in all human endeavours, from science to spirituality. Written from direct experience, 'Letter to Earth' is a handbook that explains, in well-crafted, accessible language, how we create reality, how life works on planet Earth and what it really means to be a person. It offers a clear understanding of our potential to expand into an unfolding universe of possibilities. "Beautiful and serene, lucid and wise, this book challenges us to get a life - an inner life" - Matthew Fox, author of 'Sins of the Spirit, Blessings of the Flesh'.

Review:

Using a question-and-answer format, Elia Wise has assembled a collection of 22 essays that read like letters from God. Each essay responds to a question, such as "Who runs the switchboard? Is there a God?" Wise then writes an answer, such as, "There is no grand puppeteer moving you around by invisible strings. The creative Source endows all energy with the self-governing power of integral intelligence. Every value in the Universe, and therefore every Being in the Universe, is interactive and interdependent in one integrated circuit."

If this seems like woo-woo gobbledy-gook, read no further. But if there is a spark that ignites your attention, be prepared for a book that explores intuition, quantum physics, the energy of chi, and "essential values" all in one sweeping breath. Like a Carlos Castaneda or Stephen Hawking book, Letter to Earth should be digested slowly. It also requires you to check your skepticism at the door. This is a writer who eloquently preaches to the New Age choir, addressing questions like, who's dreaming when you are asleep, and where are you when you are dreaming? What is déjà vu? "If you are seeking answers, you need to ask questions and be available to receive a response--wherever it may come from," writes Wise. "It could come from the grocer, the radio, the garden or the Cosmos." And for many it could come from this unique teacher. --Gail Hudson

From the Publisher:

The Publisher wants you to know... LETTER TO EARTH has these sterling reviews:

LIBRARY JOURNAL, says: "Prefaced by a letter to her three-year-old daughter, to whom the author bequeaths her unorthodox wisdom, these writings explore several immense questions, such as "How can humanity free its children from the patterns of the past?" and "What can be done to change the world?" The answers that emerge are extraordinary and inspiring, grounded in "New Science," a field of thought that takes into account the transformational role of consciousness in all human endeavors, from science to spirituality. Wise, who has taught healing arts and been involved with consciousness research for over twenty years, offers a lucid and unusual discussion of the multdimensional nature of reality that will intrigue even skeptical readers. An original, beautifully written work that definitely stretches the limits of accepted knowledge about the role of human consciousness in the universe."

M.F. SCHLITZ, Doctor of Science, University of Zurich Fellowship of Scientists, says: "LETTER TO EARTH establishes viable foundations for a science of consciousness. The theories it presents substantiate and unify the work generations of intuitive thinkers and writers. This is seminal thinking that can liberate us in understanding the Universe."

WILLIS HARMAN, Professor Emeritus, Stanford University, President Emeritus, Institute of Noetic Scientists, says: "Some of this we have heard before; the rest could change the world. If hard scientists will read it and extrapolate, they will see a new world."

PAUL GONZALES, UNITED BROADCASTING NETWORK, says: "...insights of classical magnitude. LETTER TO EARTH belongs on your bookshelf next to Plato and Aristotle."

MATTHEW FOX, author, THE REINVENTION OF WORK THE PHYSICS OF ANGELS, says: "Beautiful and serene, lucid and wise, this book challenges us to get a life -an inner life. One wonders if its origin is indeed from another sphere, one that could be called angelic."

TONY TRUPIANO, 75 syndicated radio stations, says: "Astounding! This book is astounding. LETTER TO EARTH offers us insights that could change the foundations of modern thinking."

DOROTHY and BURL IVES, Ambassadors of Goodwill, Burl Ives, Venerable balladeer, say: "We grew up with this book and the author. It is a rare opportunity to be offered a clear and intimate understanding of the Universe. Accept the offering. It will expand your mind and light a fire in your heart."

THE NAPRA REVIEW, says: "Wise writes lovingly and oh, so tenderly... Worth reading? Definitely. ...you are bound to get a lot of insight from these appealing reassuring and earnest expressions of love and light."

INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER, says: "For those lamenting that there is nothing 'new' in the New Age, a recent release might just change that opinion. LETTER TO EARTH is bound together in a stunning package, though it is the content that is capturing the attention of reviewers. Even the traditionally skeptical mainstream press has given the book star treatment."

LEADING EDGE REVIEW, says: "Bravo! LETTER TO EARTH is sure to start a spirited public dialogue."

NEXUS MAGAZINE, says: "Humanity is on the brink of an Age of Inspired Realism in which we will be able to integrate knowledge of the mulitdimensional nature of things into a coherent whole, inclusive of both science and spirituality. But our transformation to this state depends on the love we bring to bear, writes Elea Wise, in her beautifully produced compendium of wisdom, LETTER TO EARTH. "

NEW AGE RETAILER, says: "Elia Wise has undertaken a tremendous project -explaining the workings of the universe- and accomplished this task with inspired grace.... Her ideas are presented in concise and straightforward style, the style of a teacher or master speaking to an eager student...."

ALAN M. Abromovitz, M.D., says: "LETTER TO EARTH is a brilliantly conceived and elegantly expressed view of humanity as it is, and how it can be upon awakening the inner goodness of all being. A guiding light of wisdom and understanding and knowledge satisfying even the most discerning intellect and identifying the nature of true responsibility as the doorway to the realization of health and happiness."
