“Writing this piece of art was a beautiful journey in itself. In my mindfulness I discovered that I am a translator - when I receive the visuals I need to translate it into the English language as best I can so that when you read it you see it and feel it.” - Shakeela Kingzley
The author has created a unique path to understanding the third dimension of life.
Acknowledging the role of religion in life, he says that one does not have to be religious in order to find spirituality or the third dimension.
Through the conditioning of our upbringing, religious beliefs may even be a stumbling block to finding ones true self, free of pre-conditioning or opinions.
Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have survived more than fifty years of exile and the soul-crushing violence of oppression. Despite their hardships - or, as they would say, because of them - they are two of the most joyful people on the planet. In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu travelled to the Dalai Lama's home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness's eightieth birthday and to create this book as a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: how do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering?
They traded intimate stories, teased each other continually, and shared their spiritual practices. By the end of a week filled with laughter and punctuated with tears, these two global heroes had stared into the abyss and despair of our times and revealed how to live a life brimming with joy.
This book offers us a rare opportunity to experience their astonishing and unprecedented week together, from the first embrace to the final goodbye.
In hierdie boek deel ek my eie pad wat ek met die Doodsengel gestap het en hoe my pa se afsterwe my lewe dramaties verander het. Nianell en Riana Scheepers is maar ’n paar mense wat ook hul eie ervaringe met afgestorwe siele kom deel. Sekerlik die belangrikste deel van die boek is om ons vrese vir die dood aan te spreek en die konsep vir onsself te herdefinieer, sodat ons ook nie ons eie afsterwe sal vrees nie. Ek kyk na die potensiaal wat ontstaan om te groei en te ontluik in die unieke jy, wanneer die dood jou lewe kom omvergooi.
A first-person account of Jim Tucker's experiences with a number of extraordinary children with memories of past lives, Return To Life focuses mostly on American cases, presenting each family's story and describing his investigation. His goal is to determine what happened - what the child has said, how the parents have reacted, whether the child's statements match the life of a particular deceased person, and whether the child could have learned such information through normal means.
Tucker has found cases that provide persuasive evidence that some children do, in fact, possess memories of previous lives. Among others, readers will meet a boy who describes a previous life on a small island. When Tucker takes him to that island, he finds that some details eerily match the boy's statements and some do not. Another boy points to a photograph from the 1930s and says he used to be one of the men in it. Once the laborious efforts to identify that man are successful, many of the child's numerous memories are found to match the details of his life. Soon after his second birthday, a third boy begins expressing memories of being a World War II pilot who is eventually identified.
We experience our environment in a unique way through our senses. Some people thrive in a busy environment with lots going on and many people involved. They like everything brighter, louder, hotter, faster and find these inputs enjoyable and stimulating. Others avoid a crowded, noisy environment and will escape to ordered tranquillity whenever they can. They prefer everything softer, milder, slower and quickly feel overwhelmed and irritated by too much fuss and flutter. Sensory intelligence explains in clear layman's terms how this works to help you understand why you and others respond to sensory input the way you do. It then tells you how to modulate your senses to adapt to your environment and other people, or change your environment to fit your sensory preferences. It will help you to function more effectively and give you greater understanding and adaptability within your relationships, both at home and at work.

You'll find all the practical tips you need for adapting these methods to your daily life, even for a few minutes a day on the subway or in an office cubicle. And as your life opens to deep happiness, clarity, peace, and creative energy, you'll be inspired to keep on practicing—naturally.

Baptist de Pape had just finished law school and was about to start his legal career when, plagued with doubts about what job to take, he saw an interview of Eckhart Tolle with Oprah Winfrey that changed his path completely. In the clip, Tolle asked that we consider not what we want from life, but what life wants from us. de Pape underwent an epiphany and felt with utter conviction that part of his purpose in life was to investigate the power of the heart and make a film about the power of listening to your heart. He travelled the world interviewing spiritual teachers, who offered answers to existential questions and taught important lessons about the power of the heart, lessons that reveal your hidden talents and qualities, and which help you bring out the best in yourself. Baptist interviewed 18 masters for the book and film: Maya Angelou; Deepak Chopra; Paulo Coelho; Eckhart Tolle; Marianne Williamson; Gary Zukav; Isabel Allende; Jane Goodall; Joe Dispenza; John Gray; Michael Beckwith; Ruediger Schache; Neale Donald Walsch; Howard Martin; Rollin McCraty; Marci Shimoff; Linda Francis; and Dean Schrock. Each has his or her own cultural, philosophical, and professional background and helps create a sensational portrait of the heart as an inexhaustible source of love, wisdom, and intelligence that far surpasses that of the mind. Here are the lessons from those teachers, a journey to discover the power of your heart that will transform how you think about money, health, relationships, and success and how you live in relation to them. You will discover an original and authentic power, one that is buried inside yourself like a hidden treasure. It is time to take the key and open the treasure chest inside. It is time to discover the power of the heart.
In An Appeal to the World, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet illuminates the way to peace in our time, arguing for a form of universal ethics that goes beyond religion – values we all share as humans that can help us create unity and peace to heal our world.
THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
‘I see with ever greater clarity that our spiritual well-being depends not on religion, but on our innate human nature, our natural affinity for goodness, compassion and caring for others’
In this urgent ‘appeal to the world’, His Holiness the Dalai Lama addresses our time of division, calling on us to draw upon the innate goodness of our shared humanity to overcome the rancour, mistrust, and divisiveness that threaten world peace and sustainability.
Working with trusted collaborator Franz Alt, the Dalai Lama calls on the better angels of our nature to tackle a wide range of contemporary issues, from war, violence and intolerance to climate change, global hunger and materialism. Applying the techniques and teachings of Tibetan Buddhism – from listening and contemplation to meditation and nonviolence – His Holiness provides a roadmap forward.
Brief yet profound, An Appeal to the World is an inspiring message of love and optimism that can truly change the world.
Astrology is an ancient practice used by our ancestors to plan their life by the stars. Over the years we have lost touch with the universe around us and the important framework it can provide us to get the most out of life. The Signs will help you to discover more about yourself and those around you by teaching you how to interpret your natal chart (the arrangement of the stars at the time of our birth). By looking at how your chart impacts each aspect of your life and contributes to overall well-being, astrology encourages us to be more aware of others and ourselves and helps to modify how we react to other people and the situations we find ourselves in. This is not a crystal ball in which to read the future but instead should be seen as a path guiding you toward greater control of your life which increases happiness and enhances well-being.
We're all struggling to find time in our lives, but somehow there's never enough to go around. We're too tired to think, too wired to focus, less efficient than we want to be, and guilty about not getting enough time with our loved ones.
We all know that we feel starved for time, but what are we actually doing about it? Precious little. In The Art of Stopping Time, New York Times bestselling author Pedram Shojai guides us towards success with what he calls Time Prosperity--having the time to accomplish what you want in life without feeling compressed, stressed, overburdened, or hurried.
So how do we achieve this Time Prosperity? We learn to Stop Time. To do that, Shojai walks us though a 100-day Gong, which is based on the Chinese practice of designating an amount of time each day to perform a specific task. The ritual helps you become mindful, train your mind, instill new habits, and fundamentally transform your relationship with time. We can find moments of mental awareness while in the shower, eating a snack, listening to podcasts, and even while binge-watching our favorite TV shows.
He shares how to use Gongs to reprogram your habits, reduce stress, increase energy, exercise the ancient practice of mindfulness, and become a master of your time. Whether you do one per day, a bunch at a time, or read the whole book in one sitting, practicing the Gongs is a dedicated act of self-love that snaps us out of our daily trance and brings the light of awareness to our consciousness. The more we practice, the more we wake up, and the better off we are.
We are living, working and engaging with the world longer than ever before. Yet our society tends to give young people all the glory, failing to recognise and nurture the tremendous resources and possibilities presented by men and women moving beyond middle age and into later life. Now in his seventies, renowned psychotherapist, former monk and celebrated author Thomas Moore encourages us to embrace a pure acceptance of growing older. Ageing, Moore says, is a life-long process - a series of initiations. Through these initiations each of us, over time, can become a deeper, more enlightened and spiritually atuned person. Ageing, he teaches, is something for us to honour, own and celebrate. Ageless Soul is a beautiful meditation on how to make the most of our years as we grow older.
Dr. Eben Alexander, author of international phenomenon Proof of Heaven, shares the next phase of his journey to understand the true nature of consciousness and how to cultivate a state of harmony with the universe and our higher purpose.
In 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander's brain was severely damaged by a devastating case of bacterial meningitis, and he lapsed into a weeklong coma. It was almost certainly a death sentence, but he miraculously survived and brought back with him an astounding story. During those 7 days in coma, he was plunged into the deepest realms of consciousness and came to understand profound truths about the universe we inhabit. What he learned changed everything he knew about the brain, mind, and consciousness and drove him to ask a question confounding the entire scientific community: How do you explain the origins of consciousness if it is not a byproduct of the brain? His challenge relates to a revolutionary shift now underway within our modern scientific understanding. Ultimately, direct experience is key to fully understanding how we are all connected through the binding force of unconditional love and its unlimited power to heal.
In Living in a Mindful Universe, the New York Times bestselling author of Proof of Heaven and The Map of Heavenshares his insights into the true nature of consciousness. Embracing his radically new worldview, he began a committed program of personal exploration into nonlocal consciousness. Along the way, he met Karen Newell, who had spent most of her lifetime living the worldview he had only just discovered was possible. Her personal knowledge came from testing various techniques and theories as part of her daily routine. With Living in a Mindful Universe, they teach you how to tap into your greater mind and the power of the heart to facilitate enhancement of healing, relationships, creativity, guidance, and more. Using various modalities related to meditation and mindfulness, you will gain the power to access that infinite source of knowing so vital to us all, ultimately enriching every facet of our lives.
'Life-transforming' Susan Cain, author of Quiet Emily Esfahani Smith explains why the search for meaning is far more fulfilling than the pursuit of personal happiness. To explore how we can change our lives for the better, she draws on the latest research in psychology, sociology, philosophy and neuroscience, as well as insights from figures in literature and history such as George Eliot, Viktor Frankl, Aristotle and the Buddha. She shows us how cultivating connections to others, identifying and working toward a purpose, telling stories about our place in the world, and seeking out mystery, can immeasurably deepen our lives. To do this she visits remarkable people and places, such as a tight-knit fishing village in the Chesapeake Bay, a dinner where young people gather to share their experiences of profound loss, a drug kingpin who finds his purpose in helping people get fit, and more. And she explores how we might begin to build a culture that leaves space for introspection and awe, cultivates a sense of community, and imbues our lives with meaning.

Who among us is not affected by issues such as stress, depression, personality and behavioral changes, agitation, hypertension or high cholesterol--to name a few? Did you know that these are some of the cognitive and biological deficiencies that are associated with Alzheimer's? It is estimated that 5.4 million people in the U.S. are afflicted with Alzheimer's disease. In its capacity to completely destroy personalities, relationships and daily living, we cannot afford to continue thinking of it as a private disease. Alzheimer's is a family problem--ruthless in its scope and spread. And despite relentless trials and research studies, scientists have not found a drug to control it. Even worse, there isn't even a fully reliable diagnostic test for it. Alzheimer's disease has become a gigantic specter that looms before all of us as we age, and it is advancing unimpeded. Today we know that contributing factors and symptoms (such as stress and hypertension) can be alleviated with holistic, alternate management approaches--like meditation, yoga, music therapy and virtual reality therapy. Research studies from Harvard Medical School, Johns Hopkins University and Mayo Clinic, among many others, have demonstrated the comprehensive benefits of yoga and meditation on various aspects of the human mind--and when you think about it, that's where Alzheimer's disease develops--in the mind. But, how can meditation and yoga stop or even reverse the course of Alzheimer's? They set the mind on an inward journey where the risk factors that precipitate the disease are formed. This bridging of the old and new creates an imperative paradigm shift in our perspective toward Alzheimer's disease management. Why Buddha Never Had Alzheimer's is precisely what is needed to cause a drastic and necessary revolution in medical care.
