Answers to the questions that arise on the spiritual path. No matter where we are in our spiritual development, we all have questions about our practice and what we are experiencing--both the challenges and opportunities. How can I overcome my struggles to meditate more deeply? Is there a need for a guru or can I rely on myself? Can I trust my intuition? Is it possible to hear the "Inner Word," the voice of the soul, and how can I be sure that's what I'm hearing? Is the Higher Self in the heart? Offering trustworthy answers to these and many more questions, renowned spiritual teacher Paul Brunton provides instructions to guide one's development in three fundamental areas of the spiritual path: meditation, self-examination, and the unfolding of awakening. Guiding you with insight and care through each stage of meditation, including advanced states that deepen one's inner life, he explains how meditation is the art and practice of introverting attention, of freeing oneself for a period of time from thoughts, sensations, and feelings and allowing the soul to reveal itself out of the quiet that one has created. He explains the goal of each meditative stage and the obstacles you are likely to face and examines the need for spiritual dependency on any particular guru, teaching, or practice, showing that following your intuition can bring spiritual success. Exploring the process of self-examination and emotional purification, Brunton shows how life's challenges are moments by which we can make real progress in our surrender to a higher life. He reveals how to break free from the ego, follow your intuition to align with your ideals, and tap into the inspiration flowing from within. He also examines the development of transcendental insight, the cornerstone of compassionate wisdom in action, which allows us to become a source of inspiration to all we encounter. Including writings received by the Paul Brunton Philosophic Foundation after his death, this guide offers transformative wisdom to aid our understanding of what the spiritual journey entails, help point the way when the way is uncertain, and learn and grow from the challenges that arise as you develop spiritually.

In our increasingly secular world, holy texts are at best seen as irrelevant, and at worst as an excuse to incite violence, hatred and division. So what value, if any, can scripture hold for us today? And if our world no longer seems compatible with scripture, is it perhaps because its original purpose has become lost? Today we see the Quran being used by some to justify war and terrorism, the Torah to deny Palestinians the right to live in the Land of Israel, and the Bible to condemn homosexuality and contraception. The holy texts at the centre of all religious traditions are often employed selectively to underwrite arbitrary and subjective views. They are believed to be divinely ordained; they are claimed to contain eternal truths. But as Karen Armstrong, a world authority on religious affairs, shows in this fascinating journey through millennia of history, this narrow reading of scripture is a relatively recent phenomenon. For hundreds of years these texts were instead viewed as spiritual tools: scripture was a means for the individual to connect with the divine, to transcend their physical existence, and to experience a higher level of consciousness. Holy texts were seen as fluid and adaptable, rather than a set of binding archaic rules or a `truth' that has to be `believed'. Armstrong argues that only by rediscovering an open engagement with their holy texts will the world's religions be able to curtail arrogance, intolerance and violence. And if scripture is used to engage with the world in more meaningful and compassionate ways, we will find that it still has a great deal to teach us.

Waking Up in Paris - Overcoming Darkness in the City of Light (Paperback): Sonia Choquette, Sonia Choquette, Ph.D. Waking Up in Paris - Overcoming Darkness in the City of Light (Paperback)

'As if waking up from a nightmare, I thought: if I am going to be traumatized, I might as well be traumatized in Paris, right?' Devastated by the unexpected end of her decades-long marriage, renowned spiritual teacher and intuitive guide Sonia Choquette undertook an equally unexpected move and relocated to Paris, the scene of many happy memories from her life as a student and young mother. Arriving in a Paris still reeling from the Charlie Hebdo massacre, Sonia began a journey of healing that involved deep soul-searching and acceptance of a new, sometimes uncomfortable reality. In this follow-up to Walking Home, Sonia shares her intimate thoughts and fears, as well as the unique challenges of setting up a new life in a foreign land. From moving into a freezing, malodorous apartment, to a more pleasant - yet haunted - flat across the Seine, to her current light-filled home, Sonia shares how these changes parallel her inner transformation. Along the way, Sonia regales readers with vivid stories of her unfortunate encounters with French hairdressers and beauticians, her adventures in French fashion and her search for the perfect neighbourhood cafe. Her companion throughout is the city of Paris - a character unto itself - which never ceases to fill her with wonder, surprise and delight, and provides her with the spiritual strength to succeed in establishing her new life.

Footsteps into the Light - A Comprehensive Handbook and Practical Guide into the Spiritual Life for the Enquiring Mind:... Footsteps into the Light - A Comprehensive Handbook and Practical Guide into the Spiritual Life for the Enquiring Mind: Spirituality and Reality (Paperback)

R304 R234 Discovery Miles 2 340 Save R70 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Footsteps into the Light introduces the reader to the idea of spirituality and religion in a wide range of topics, from the incredible wonders of the everyday going into the spiritual journey in the hands of the pragmatic God of science and all creation. Ultimately we are brought face to face with the reality of our everlasting journey. With a background of engineering science and its practical application, the author is able to take us on a voyage of spiritual discovery in the knowledge that what is so readily taken to be the paranormal and beyond understanding is really quite normal on the higher planes of realisation. It is written in a chatty style as though the author, a former teacher of the subject matter, is talking to us in a friendly manner in which we can be equally at ease while listening. Presented from a Christian standpoint, it welcomes all faiths as well as any without faith or belief. There are passages of an interesting and complementary nature seemingly unaligned at first, but most useful in a wider appreciation of the main theme; all contained in thirty succinct chapters. It is an excellent handbook for general reading and reference, as well as for anyone seeking, or already upon, the pathway of discovery.

One night, after an evening spent at an unsatisfying social gathering, Oriah Mountain Dreamer sat down and wrote her heartfelt poem 'The Invitation'. It begins, 'It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing…' Profound and passionate, the poem travelled by word-of-mouth and the Internet across the globe to be read at weddings, funerals and spiritual gatherings. Now, in this practical and inspiring book, the author expands on the ideas behind the poem to create a guidebook for living a life full of integrity, commitment and passion.

Remarkable…this book is at once a fierce and tender presence. Its wisdom could become a lifelong companion, engaging and awakening the original, unique rhythm of your mind and soul.'
JOHN DONAHUE, author of 'Anam Cara'

'An invitation to the ultimate dance.'

One Earth, Many Religions - Multi Faith Dialogue and Global Responsibility (Paperback): Paul F. Knitter One Earth, Many Religions - Multi Faith Dialogue and Global Responsibility (Paperback)
Paul F. Knitter
R514 R461 Discovery Miles 4 610 Save R53 (10%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

One of the world's foremost exponents of the "pluralist" position as the most adequate Christian theological account of religious diversity turns to a new and urgent issue facing the community of world religions. For Paul Knitter, the spectre of environmental and social injustice looms over any serious discussion of humankind's future. As urgent as it is to have peace among the world's believers to achieve peace among nations, it is urgent that these communities unite in understanding and defending of the earth. In One Earth Many Religions Knitter looks back at his own "dialogical odyssey" and forward to the way that interfaith encounters and dialogue must focus attention on new challenges. Nothing less than enlisting the commitment of the world's religions on the task of saving our common home will do. In making that case, Knitter makes clear the complex structurespolitical, economic, and social as well as religious - that face those who approach this task. While articulating a "this-worldly soteriology" necessary to overcome our eco-human plight, Knitter offers practical considerations on actions and projects that have and should have been undertaken to stem the tide of environmental and human suffering. The global crisis is both at the center of One Earth Many Religions and a test case for Knitter and others engaged in the dialogue of religions. Can religious differences concerning the nature of the transcendent themselves be transcended in order to promote eco-human well-being? The issue seems basic and clearif interreligious dialogue cannot effect such a change, then one must question whether religion is of any use whatsoever.

In the 1960s, Americans combined psychedelics with Buddhist meditation to achieve direct experience through altered states of consciousness. As some practitioners became more committed to Buddhism, they abandoned the use of psychedelics in favor of stricter mental discipline, but others carried on with the experiment, advancing a fascinating alchemy called psychedelic Buddhism. Many think exploration with psychedelics in Buddhism faded with the revolutionary spirit of the sixties, but the underground practice has evolved into a brand of religiosity as eclectic and challenging as the era that created it. Altered States combines interviews with well-known figures in American Buddhism and psychedelic spirituality-including Lama Surya Das, Erik Davis, Geoffrey Shugen Arnold Sensei, Rick Strassman, and Charles Tart-and personal stories of everyday practitioners to define a distinctly American religious phenomenon. The nuanced perspective that emerges, grounded in a detailed history of psychedelic religious experience, adds critical depth to debates over the controlled use of psychedelics and drug-induced mysticism. The book also opens new paths of inquiry into such issues as re-enchantment, the limits of rationality, the biochemical and psychosocial basis of altered states of consciousness, and the nature of subjectivity.

Now a" New York Times "Bestseller

As a college student he spent 16 days in the Pacific Ocean with five guys and a crate of canned meat. As a father he took his kids on a world tour to eat ice cream with heads of state. He made friends in Uganda, and they liked him so much he became the Ugandan consul. He pursued his wife for three years before she agreed to date him. His grades weren't good enough to get into law school, so he sat on a bench outside the Dean's office for seven days until they finally let him enroll.

Bob Goff has become something of a legend, and his friends consider him the world's best-kept secret. Those same friends have long insisted he write a book. What follows are paradigm shifts, musings, and stories from one of the world's most delightfully engaging and winsome people. What fuels his impact? Love. But it's not the kind of love that stops at thoughts and feelings. Bob's love takes action. Bob believes "Love Does."

When "Love Does," life gets interesting. Each day turns into a hilarious, whimsical, meaningful chance that makes faith simple and real. Each chapter is a story that forms a book, a life. And this is one life you don't want to miss.

Light and fun, unique and profound, the lessons drawn from Bob's life and attitude just might inspire you to be secretly incredible, too.

Love Does has a kind of 'north star' effect that will push you to refocus your life and energy on what is most significant. It doesn't just invite you to respond with your God-given potential, it invites you to become a part of what God can do beyond your potential." --Reggie Joiner, Founder and CEO of Orange

"There are some nasty rumors out there about treasure. Mostly that's it's buried and needs discovering. Or has to be mined. Or can only be located with a map and a big X. Not so, says the life of Bob Goff. Living from the center of your heart doesn't have to be complicated or elusive. Love just wakes up in the morning and gets busy loving. The treasure is sitting right there next to the pancakes. About 5 pages in, I knew my life and I were gonna have words." --Nicole Nordeman, Mother and Musician

LESS > Fake LESS > Shame LESS > Masks MORE > Real Jesus promises `life and life to the full'. So why do so many people walk away from faith - and not just teenagers but people who have been in church for years? The full life offered is one of genuine relationship with God and others, but has our tendency to fight vulnerability, mask weakness and hide disappointment cost us the real thing? Have we tried to keep it together, keep the faith, until we simply can't do it anymore? Following Jesus should not require fronts: when we fully grasp the love of God towards us, in all our mess and sin and doubt, we experience the freedom that vulnerability, honesty, and sacrifice brings. That's real life; life to the full. MORE > Real explores how we can build lives on truth, and cultivate a real faith that lasts through the storms of life.
