I have also read Twyman's books. They're very inspirational. However, I question as to whether or not he is embellishing a bit. I mean no disrespect. It's just that I stumbled upon a website which does a report on Twyman. I didn't have time to read through the whole thing, but the parts I did read seem to make sense to me. What do you all think? Not to say that I don't appreciate Twyman's work. I am most grateful for his World Peace Experiment. And I don't think he's a "bad" person or anything. But if he's not being completely honest, I hope he will let us know.
>Of all the special reports I have worked on, this has been the most challenging. Along with triggering personal issues for me (which I discuss in the last section of this report), both Twyman and his story has been particularly slippery. As far as we have been able to determine, there are kernels of truth in everything Twyman claims. At the same time, virtually every aspect of his story has also been misrepresented, embellished, and spun in dubious ways. Similarly, while Twyman's main contention that he physically met 13 spiritual masters in Bosnia is almost certainly not true, he seems sincere, and genuinely committed to personal and planetary transformation. Indeed, a part from his megalomaniac claims, he seems like a regular guy -- warm, personable, friendly.
I have spent weeks trying to figure out how to present this report in a way that is fair, accurate, objective, AND GENTLE, but haven't been able to find one. Twyman's claims are so extraordinary, and the issues he brings up are so important, that a watered-down report is not possible -- at least for me.
That said, it is my sincere hope that this report will help everyone involved -- myself, James Twyman, his editor, publisher and associates, his readers and fans, and the NHNE staff and readership -- take a closer look at ourselves, our beliefs, and the spiritual ideas and practices that dominate so much of the personal growth/planetary transformation movement today.<http://www.nhne.com/specialreports/sremissary.html
