Us vs. Them
There is a persistent theme in the book, marketing emails and the like, that tries to divide the reader. It’s like an “us vs. them” mentality. I’ve seen it before (when I was in the Golden Dawn, and in Scientology.) It’s an idea that while others systems may be cute, they are impotent. They lack the power of effectiveness of “THIS SYSTEM.” and Others have tried but have failed. I don’t care for “us vs. them” type of arguments. The idea that one person knows more, or is better, is simply relative based upon the person using the system. Any system can work, and any can fail. It’s all really based on our unique path.
In his chapters on meditation this is clearly stated. Throughout the marketing emails, this is clearly stated. It’s like a push of Eric Pepin’s system over any other.
If it weren’t for the effectiveness of his program, I would have simply dismissed this fellow. He does have gems. His meditations are good. Are they better than anyone else? Is it so different than other systems? Maybe its different… but is it better?
One man’s medicine is another man’s poison. Each of us has our own path to God. That’s my belief. You may find your path to God in a religion, while another finds it in Buddhism or another in the occult. Some may find it with Eric Pepin.
Eric’s message, tools and philosophy is effective. I may not agree with all of it, but I have to give credit were credit is due.
In the end, while I disagree with some of Eric’s assertions and I didn’t care for the “us vs. them” mindset, I do feel he’s on to something and it’s quite powerful.
If you’re interested in this spiritual book, or his organization (Higher Balance), I suggest starting out slow, read the Handbook of the Navigator and just ignore (for now) those elements you disagree with. Try one or two of his meditations. You might be able to buy the book with access to meditations… I did off some online ad. Then you’ll have a better flavor of what’s in store. Check out their YouTube channel and review his videos. This is a great way to figure out if it resonates with you.

While I disagree with his world-view in relation to souls, I do believe I can learn quite a bit from his methodology and put it into my own spiritual practice.
The excitement of his team, his students is clear. They seem to really grasp something deep and often times have a hard time putting it into words. They say they see things… glitches… and I believe them.
