A Voice as Old as Time: Contemplations for Spiritual Transformation by David Bennett (Author)


In his second book, Energy Healer and Transformational Coach David Bennett uses contemplations to develop a center of focus in meditation and during daily life. The contemplations in this book provide a subject for serious thought or consideration into the reader’s divine nature. Unlike other meditation techniques that look to empty the mind, contemplations intently focus on an idea about something while in a state of stillness or when being mindful. Reflective meditation involves repeatedly turning your attention to a theme but being open to whatever arises from the experience. Deep and lasting wisdom comes from experience so A Voice as Old as Time gives contemplations that allow the reader to calmly plant the seeds of transformation that works to expand their consciousness. The wisdom of contemplations is a voice as old as time thus the title of this book. Contemplations like these have been spoken by our ancestors before and still hold the wisdom today for those ready to listen.

A Voice as Old as Time
evolved from the daily contemplations that David posts on his Facebook page DharmaTalks and the work he does helping others on a path of spiritual transformation. Many times while posting reflections and while writing this book, David found that the contemplations and life crisscrossed in unexpected ways. Many people that follow his daily contemplations online reported similar experiences. The book can be used in daily practice and/or as a divination tool to see what reflective energy is needed in life at any particular moment for the user. Working with reflections helps the reader make empowered choices that imbue their lives and relationships with real substance and depth.

In A Voice as Old as Time, the contemplations are arranged into forty-four brief chapters in a natural progression toward spiritual maturity and awakening—from finding and knowing yourself, to living in love and eventually finding purpose. Throughout there are woven-in common themes like connecting to your divine essence, using loving intentions, and gratitude while on the journey we call life. David writes from a common premise of everything is alive with spiritual energy of love, the eternal flame that is found everywhere and in everything. Anyone can access the wisdom of their true nature so they can face life’s many decisions with empowerment, clear vision, right action, and a sense of purpose. A Voice as Old as Time is a tool of focused meditations and mindfulness that can be used during anyone’s journey toward spiritual transformation, a tool that can assist in living more purposefully, more authentically, and more joyfully. The purpose of this work is not to express any special philosophy or doctrine, but rather to give bits of truth that resonate with any belief system and assist the reader with their passage.

Abstract: I had two near-death experiences (NDEs) that showed me my future and during the integration of those experiences I was able to see the potentials of what lies ahead for our world and humanity. I will briefly share the portions of my veridical experiences that dealt with the future and then relate the communication I received about potential struggles and possible solutions. I would like to challenge the audience to look at the bigger picture of the world we live in today, realizing that only a few environmental disasters could push our already stressed social, political and economic structures into a very serious condition. The governments of the world could not support their citizens and communities in the ways we have come to rely on. Yet, the spiritual community embodies the qualities to overcome these challenges. Also, through my connection in social media I have found there is hope in the message that spiritually transformative experiencers (STErs) around the world are conveying. I will share the ways given to me to circumvent these dire conditions and begin to deliver support that will reduce the stressors before a crisis occur.
