As soon as I started reading this I felt the power and depth, but I have still to complete it and do all of the studies. It is a long journey. You may too keep having to come back. NOT for beginners in the spiritual / personal development field (normally)!!
A Course in Miracles is a classic in modern spirituality. The landmark guide is in as much demand today as it was when it was first published in 1975. This updated text is split into three volumes which include the text, workbook for students and manual for teachers. Although the course is Christian in statement, it deals with universal spiritual themes, and is designed to help achieve dramatic, lasting results in every aspect of your life.
Included are some encouraging and fascinating references to methods to transform racist tendencies!
Terrorism, poverty, wars, racism, global warming, domestic violence, tsunamis, and cancer. The problems and hardships we face each day are daunting and downright depressing. How can we expect to find happiness and meaning in our lives when the modern world seems like such a truly unhappy place? It is possible to achieve, and a man who has achieved it – despite tremendous suffering – talks about what it's like to be happy in a troubled world.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama has suffered enormously throughout this life yet always seems to be smiling and serene. Is he oblivious? Does he simply ignore the pain he sees around him? Just the opposite. The Dalai Lama is deeply engaged in compassionate practice and in The Art of Happiness in a Troubled World, Dr. Cutler walks readers through the Dalai Lama's teachings on how to achieve peace of mind and come to terms with life's inherent suffering.
Using common sense and modern psychiatry, The Art of Happiness in a Troubled World applies 2,500 years of Buddhist tradition to twenty-first century struggles. With the Dalai Lama's trademark warmth and humour and Cutler's penetrating mind, the result is a wise approach to dealing with human problems that is both optimistic and realistic, even in the most challenging times.
An amazing account, life-changing. A bit repetitive at times, but maybe to get the point across. Offers alternative viewpoints on Karma and the notion of time!
In this truly inspirational memoir, Anita Moorjani relates how, after fighting cancer for almost four years, her body-overwhelmed by the malignant cells spreading throughout her system-began shutting down. As her organs failed, she entered into an extraordinary near-death experience where she realized her inherent worth…and the actual cause of her disease. Upon regaining consciousness, Anita found that her condition had improved so rapidly that she was able to be released from the hospital within weeks…without a trace of cancer in her body! Within these pages, Anita recounts stories of her childhood in Hong Kong, her challenge to establish her career and find true love, as well as how she eventually ended up in that hospital bed where she defied all medical knowledge. As part of a traditional Hindu family residing in a largely Chinese and British society, she had been pushed and pulled by cultural and religious customs since she had been a little girl. After years of struggling to forge her own path while trying to meet everyone else's expectations, she had the realization, as a result of her epiphany on the other side, that she had the power to heal herself …and that there are miracles in the Universe that she had never even imagined. In "Dying to Be Me", Anita freely shares all she has learned about illness, healing, fear, "being love", and the true magnificence of each and every human being! This is a book that definitely makes the case that we are spiritual beings having a human experience …and that we are all One.
