The Book of Love is very appropriately named, because Love is what this book is about. It is based on the daily meditations of the author, and is refreshingly different as the spirituality of the Aboriginals, the indigenous people of Australia, is focused upon with insight and respect, writes one reviewer.
A refreshing take on the Genesis Story which fits neatly with Australian Aboriginal Dreamtime legends, writes the reviewer about Alcheringa, When the First Ancestors were Created.
Looking back now over the past 37 years I have realised the major turning points in my life have been connected with HONG KONG. Why? – I do not know – as I live in Australia.
My husband called into my little office and gave me a letter that had arrived in the morning mail from HONG KONG. It read:-
“Dear Mrs. Barrow,
“The electric green title of “The Book of Love” twinkled at me from a book shelf as I entered Ted Healy’s office at The Diary Company, Hong Kong. It was too irresistible not to lay hands on it, so of course I picked it up. It took some doing to get Ted to loan it to me, but with the proper attitude one can always exert some influence over little portions of day to day life.”
“Many will write to you about your work and ask questions regarding its content. Myself, being a more mundane individual, find intrigue in the page count (as well as the content.) Your book contains 144 pages from the title page to the last page (counting all paper sides within the cover.) There are no roman numeral page numbers up front as one would expect to find. The narrative of the first sitting begins at page 7 with no other page numbers before it. A burning question forms in my mind “Is Valerie Barrow aware that 144 is the “All Purpose Number?” There is no other choice but to write you and ask.”
The Star People who gave the Atlanteans their crystal technology based on the “Night Side Forces” use a numbering system based on seven. The also conveyed to the Atlanteans that 144 was the All Purpose Number, the number of physical elements in nature, the prime harmony. If you are aware of that, then your conveyance of the fact to the reader is one of an infinitely sublime nature. If you are not, then other forces are exerting their influence in your work”
“So you can understand my curiosity, I am editing the readings of A Medium, for the book “The Atlantean influence in Contemporary Society.”
We are instructed that the book will be 144 pages in length.”
“It would be a pleasure to hear from you so I can sleep at night.”
