Three of the most profound thinkers I know have joined forces to produce this life-altering book that invites you to see reality through your own eyes.  Profound, yet practical, eloquent, yet easy to read, it is destined to become a reference book for any Baha'i intent on personal transformation.

In this wonderfully practical and human book, we are invited to turn our attention towards investigating our spiritual reality, Ronald Tomanio, Diane Iverson and Phyllis Ring describe how that experience is met and encountered and why it is indescribably fulfilling – the very purpose for which we were created.

Drawing on a letter of the Universal House of Justice of 19 November 1974 that provides a possible sequence that such an investigation of reality might follow, the authors explore the process – and pitfalls – that we can encounter along the way.

Some of the steps identified by the authors that can guide the soul safely along the road of development include:

setting aside blind imitation of the past

learning to build the good rather than fighting evil

choosing acts of service commensurate with our spiritual understanding

listening carefully to our intuitive voice

knowing our purpose

regarding our fears as illusory and

acquiring a sin-covering eye.


On a personal note, I had the pleasure of teaching at a summer school with Ronnie, and his explanation of the Station of Servitude, which is discussed in this book, was one of those insights that changed my perspective forever.  I highly recommend this book.

Here's a review from a customer:

I just finished reading With Thine Own Eyes. It deals with, among other topics, how to avoid blind imitation of the past, how best to give and receive service, how to be and act as a servant of God. I read it cover to cover, and re-read several portions. I found it to be a perfect blend of the spiritual and the practical. Three thumbs up! One for each co-author.
