"Leonard Orr's book is the most realistic and practical in the field of conquering death." —Timothy Leary
"Leonard Orr has the ability to alter reality. If you enter into a relation with him with any degree of sincerity, you will be mutated. Stuff is going to come up in his presence—anything that is less pure than he is—and you are going to have to address it. Reading this book is entering into a relationship with him." —Bob Frissell, author of Nothing in This Book Is True, But It's Exactly How Things Are
Biographie de l'auteur
Along with such folk heroes as Ram Dass, Fritz Perls, and Timothy Leary, Leonard Orr is one of the originators and elders of what we term today "the New Age movement." The founder of Rebirthing, he began his journey during the '50s as a born again Christian and Bible student in the Delaware River region of New York. Orr has since published twenty books in more than a dozen languages, including Rebirthing in the New Age; Breath Awareness; Babaji, the Angel of the Lord; and Government Without Taxes. His international Rebirthing Movement has served over ten million people on six continents.
THERE ARE THREE major components of physical immortality: the philosophy of physical immortality, the psychology of unraveling the death urge, and the physiology of physical immortality, which involves basis principles of body mastery. Lire la première page
Ce livre parle d'un sujet peu ordinaire, et il est d'un homme qui n'est pas non plus. Léonard Orr est le créateur du rebirth. Dans sa préface il nous dit avoir décidé de n'écrire ce livre qu'après avoir rencontré huit personnes ayant vécu au moins 300 ans dans leur corps physique. Orr nous parle ici des moyens utilisés par des yogis et maître spirituels que chacun peut utiliser afin de prolonger la vie. Ne nous trompons pas, il ne s'agit pas de créer une potion magique ou de faire revenir les morts à la vie. Il s'agit de re-spiritualiser la vie, de cesser d'accumuler la négativité dans le corps physique, de respirer mieux et par là même de revenir vers ce que nous sommes. Il ne s'agit pas de devenir un bigot, un dévot, un ermite un moine ou de sacrifier des poulets... ou de vendre son âme!!! Il s'agit de jouir de la vie d'une manière saine et sainte. Personne ne souhaiterais vivre une vie entière de privation, et encore moins si elle était très longe. Il s'agit de créer une vie que l'on puisse apprécier. Ce livre ne fournit pas une recette toute faite. Le diamant brut à tailler, c'est nous! Ouvrez donc votre vie à la possibilité qu'elle soit bien plus longue et plus intéressante que vous ne le croyez à présent. Le comte de Saint-Germain a une biographie qui nous fait penser que lui y était arrivé (documenté sur internet). Pourquoi pas vous?

First discovering this book years ago I purchased a dozen copies and gave them to friends. Not many of these friends actually found that the book spoke to them. Some even dropped me from their list of desirables. How audacious they said, "you must be afraid of dying"! This is not surprising as the idea of physical immortality appeals to very few people. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. The more I have investigated the subject and applied the principles that Leonard speaks of, the more I become alive and vital, and the more effortless is the enjoyment of this marvelous breathing experience we call "existing as human". This book then is one to read and return to, not for it's literary brilliance as one reviewer complained, but because it creates a new invaluable perspective of our possilities. As the Nobel prize winning poet, Theodore Rhedke (spelling?) says, "What we need are more people who specialize in the impossible." After reading this you may want to explore, Sondra Ray, Robert Coon, Analee Skarin, SATPREM'S The Mind of the Cells, and go to the website, [...] to mention only a few other sources of inspiration. By the way, I saw Leonard in January 2004 and he looks ageless, relaxed and is full of fun and laughter. Perhaps these principles when applied bear delicious fruit!

Far and away superior to the usual superficial cliches that pass for "spiritual or New Age" writings these days. Really useful information you can use to make your life better and more Holy in a real and practical way. This is the kind of wisdom you usually have to spend 20 years in a cave in India to get. Written in clear, concise, and understandable prose. Beautiful. Buy it! Buy it! Buy it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5Breaking the Death Habit; The Science of Everlasting life9 mars 2006
Par G. Kingi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Once I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. It is incredible. About a year ago I started seriously thinking about my own immortality but not really knowing how to begin to achieve my divine right of immortality. Leonard maps it out with humor, sensitivity and wisdom. It should be a must read on everyone's list. I am now practicing daily water/fire/earth and air purification according to Leonard's suggestions. Next will be over-coming the food/sleep addiction that we all seemingly have. Who knows I just might make it to immortality. Do yourself a favor and buy the book and then read it and then love yourself enough to start the purification processes as outlined by Leonard. Namasti.

2.0 étoiles sur 5Better writing and presentation would help23 juin 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I typically like to be presented with ideas and concepts with enough information presented in an such a way that I will reach the same conclusion as the author or presenter has done him or herself. When information is being presented to promote one's viewpoint on any topic, be it life, love, death, etc. I want to be taken into this world in a descriptive and visualized way in order to sense on my own what THIS experience really is. I believe this would be generally called objectivity. Mr. Orr would do much better working with this. Breaking The Death Habit unfortunately has a habit of presenting information in both structure and prose that reads more like the advertising of an expensive vitamin plan, which includes useful facts, first account stories, new terms ("death urge" is my favorite marketing ploy used in the book), and enough negative reinforcement to drop everything and head to the mountains in order to stop this terrible thing called death that we have all subscribed to. And by the way, it's a really really bad thing if you don't do something right now about it! What this book really needs is a rewrite. There are some very interesting accounts of immortality here, along with education from terms, thoughts, physical exercizes, that can be quite useful. What this book contains in its presentation is negativity and reinforcement, which is ironic to this reader, because Mr. Orr has a section of the book specifically aimed at organized religion and how it's negativity and reinforcement creates fear and misinformation to the masses. I think Mr. Orr can learn much from his own writing. Also, there are better ways of presenting a singular, personal experience without the reader feeling like he or she is less relevant than the writer. It takes away from the overall character of what the book's message is all about.
