Peace and Harmony in Daily Living, Balsekar, Ramesh
4 Balsekar, Ramesh Peace and Harmony in Daily Living
yogi 2005 8190105981 / 9788190105989 Paperback Very Good+ 
Do you really know what you want most in life? Even if you have all the success, fame and money you want, and the good health to enjoy it - are you happy and fulfilled? Why is it that we all find ourselves seeking something more from life - all the time? Now, a modern sage points out that each one of us, at some time or the other, has a taste of what that is: an uninterrupted experience of peace and harmony. He also shows how we can achieve this constant repose in our ordinary, hectic, daily living. This is what the seeking - most evidently, the spiritual seeking - is all about. Thus, Ramesh Balsekar in his book 'Peace and Harmony in Daily Living' raises a very basic question: Why should anyone seek 'enlightenment' or 'Self-realization'? A simple examination of one's personal experience will reveal that what usually disrupts the peace and harmony in life is a thought about something we think we - or someone else - should or shouldn't have done. Hence, a massive load of guilt and shame for oneself, or hatred and malice for the other, is perpetuated. Without a lot of arduous effort - work, discipline, sacrifice, sadhana - without outside assistance, but simply by investigating one's own experience, it is possible to get relief from this bondage. What mystics have said for ages, is here viewed from the perspective of modern living: that actions are 'happenings' and not something done by someone. This understanding is what actually contributes to and helps us in discovering the state of equanimity and peace which we most ardently seek. Try it and you will see how simple it really is.

The Bible for Children: From the Age of Gutenberg to the Present, Bottigheimer, Professor Ruth B.
7 Bottigheimer, Professor Ruth B. The Bible for Children: From the Age of Gutenberg to the Present
Yale University Press 1996 0300064888 / 9780300064889 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. For more than five centuries, parents, teachers and preachers in Europe and America have written and illustrated Bibles especially for children. These children's Bibles vary widely, featuring different stories, various interpretations, and markedly divergent illustrations, despite their common source. How children's Bibles differ, and why, it the subject of this book, recognizing children's Bibles as a distinct genre with its own literary, historical and cultural significance. Comparing European and American children's Bibles, Ruth B. Bottigheimer reveals how the cultural standards and social attitudes of adults who tell Bible stories to children affect the selection and interpretation of Old and New Testamant stories. She also analyzes many familiar Bible stories - for example, the parting of the Red Sea, the Garden of Eden, and the Crucifixion - to see what they tell us about the Protestant, Catholic and Jewish societies that presented them to children. Bottigheimer finds that even disparate religious groups transformed Bible stories for their young according to a common pattern: stories initially stayed close to scriptural text, then troubling passages underwent revisions, and finally a thoroughgoing amendment of the story emerged. Numerous illustrations throughout this book underscore the variety among children's Bibles of different eras and cultures.

15 Fedorschak, V. J. The Shadow on the Path
Hohm Press 1999 0934252815 / 9780934252812 Paperback Fine 
A tight clean copy. Psychology and spiritual healing meet in this important book that explores the nature of the human psychological 'shadow.' Eminent psychoanalyst Carl Jung first used the term "shadow" to designate the dark side of the human p ersonality: the part of ourselves we try to hide from or deny. Paradoxicall y, denying our shadows leaves us stuck on our spiritual paths-a condition t hat V. J. Fedorschak identifies and addresses in this contemporary approach to spiritual psychotherapy. Tracing the development of the shadow from Fre ud through the present, The Shadow on the Path offers four approaches to he lp readers understand and face their shadow-and thereby regain clarity and growth in their lives. An indispensable tool for spiritual and psychologica l growth, and eminently readable, The Shadow on the Path discusses: The "shadow" in the works of Freud, Jung, Reich, Alice Miller and other not able therapists The principles of inner spiritual development in the major world religions, and how these traditions address the "shadow" Examples of the disowned "shadow" in contemporary religious movements Methods of spiritual psychotherapy that can be useful in the healing proces s Case studies of clients in spiritual groups who have worked with their shad ow issues. The Shadow on the Path is a daring book that offers insight into the ramifications of the denied shadow, from individual suffering to corruption within spiritual groups.

Dr Nagai, the hero of the spiritual renewal in Nagasaki after the A-bomb left a simple but effective piece of advice: “Let us be kind to one another, because we are all lonely.”
