In my own training, I have always been instructed not to get caught up in accepting and rejecting, not to get caught by biased mind. At one time, this presented a question for me: Did it mean I should not have preferences?
I have long been fascinated by the phenomenon of crop circles. In 1994 I made a pilgrimage to England to study the mysterious formations, appearing consistently now for over 20 years. While the glyphs have been the subject of controversy and some have been fabricated by hoaxers, an intelligent study of them points sharply toward the expression of interdimensional intelligence. (For an illuminating overview of the state of the art in the crop circle phenomenon, watch the DVD What on Earth? (www.whatonearththemovie.com)
Michael Glickman, author of The Bones of God, is a renowned architect who illuminates the sacred geometry behind the crop circles. Michael identifies two distinct camps of crop circle investigators: “One camp is founded in scientism, focused on the study of various chemical and electromagnetic forces associated with the circle formations. While that’s interesting, a far more significant camp explores the meaning of the formations. Who is communicating to us? What are they trying to tell us? How will this extraordinary phenomenon affect the destiny of humanity and enrich the quality of life on earth?”
Publisher’s Description: "The sky was our original calendar, our original storybook, the first illustrated edition, the prototype GPS. Beyond its pragmatic usefulness, the sky was the domain of spirit, traversed by deities and a place to which human souls departed. Let's re-enchant it, shall we?"
Shamanic practitioner, Wicca priestess, and author of Math for Mystics Renna Shesso invites readers along as she takes a pagan's look at the night sky -- as messenger, guide, storyteller, and mother. She weaves together facts and folklore about the heavens that can't help but fill readers with awe and guide them to personal and sacred discoveries.
Using a planet-by-planet, star-by-star chapter format, A Magical Tour of the Night Sky draws on astronomy, Tarot, shamanism, astrology, Wicca, lore, legend, and history to interpret the patterns and movement of the night sky and re-awaken our spirits.
In a classic scene in The Graduate, young Ben is at his college graduation party when a friend of his parents takes him aside and earnestly whispers, “Plastics.” That industry will be the next rage, the fellow hints, and if Ben is smart he’ll get in on the ground floor.
Fast forward to 2012. A young acupuncturist phones my Hay House Radio show, Get Real, and confesses her fear that she will not be able to earn enough money to provide for her family, including her little child. I whisper to her, “Transformational services” and leave a pregnant pause for the message to sink in.
I go on to tell the woman that in the years to come we will see increasing change, disorientation, and turmoil as many social systems and institutions will likely disintegrate. They will be replaced by new systems rooted in truth, vision, and service rather than fear, greed, and illusion. As people are pushed out of old comfort zones and lifestyles they will be hungry for answers, relief, and skills to shift into more authentic and rewarding careers, relationships, and living situations. At such a time anyone connected to spiritual principles and tools will be in high demand and of great service.
Journey to the Greatness Within
Publisher's Description: From the bestselling author of The Essential Laws of Fearless Living and The Courage to Be Free.
The Seeker, the Search, the Sacred is about the universal and timeless spiritual principles that lead us to a personal discovery of divine guidance and higher insight.
This is a landmark work by self-realization teacher and bestselling author Guy Finley, who offers it as compelling evidence that within every human being dwells a nameless Sacred Being that teaches us to live in the light of our own true selves.
In The Seeker, the Search, the Sacred, Finley presents passages from all the major religious traditions and philosophies to demonstrate how they all work in concert to describe different aspects of a single compassionate, loving, and divine intelligence.
A practical book on meditation and enlightenment, a must read for any spiritual seeker. A more poetic Eckhart Tolle; Kahlil Gibran meets Krishnamurti. Ilie Cioaras message is original and unique, as he never travelled to India and never belonged to any traditional school. By practicing the silence of the mind, through an all-encompassing attention, we discover and fulfill our innermost potential of becoming one with the divine spark that lies dormant within us.
"Having studied Ilie Cioaras inspired book, I am quite convinced that if its wonderfully wise contents are read diligently, and its prescribed practise is persistenly followed, then it will gradually and gracefully lead the fortunate reader to his or her own Self Realisation." Alan Jacobs, Poet and President of the Ramana Maharshi Foundation UK
