Other poems tell of a path in poetry shared with people the author knows and loves, as well as strangers. Not a path to follow but a path made by walking - a kind of pilgrimage. And there are new poems too ...the walk, the story, the poetry go on ...See how they come: bare feet on the warm earth, disturbing the dust of ages, to the telling place where the joy of birth and beginnings is shared and the colours of hope imagined: for every baby born, a star for all life on earth, a story and a promise. (From A parable of being)
In 1969, the writer and her husband set off for what is intended to be a short holiday in Ibiza and end up taking the so-called hippie route to Katmandu in Nepal. It is the true account, written first as a journal and then daily, by a woman who takes this journey without preparation, planning or travel agent and before the instant communication of mobiles, tablets and email. In this fresh and engrossing account of a journey taken nearly 50 years ago from Europe to Asia, Carol Carlton vividly describes a world which has changed dramatically in the decades since; as she travels, an inner journey emerges as the landscape, people and the journey itself have their effect upon the writer. This book is a must-read for readers who are interested in travel and also for those who see life as an adventure, not only through what we do, but how we view the world, who we are and who we become. What emerges from this wonderfully described travel account is an approach to the unknown in the widest sense through life's journey. While their wanderings lead them into many kinds of hardships and dangers, it seems as if their spirit of open-heartedness itself keeps them safe from the unexpected risks that present themselves. At the same time, it reveals how this spirit of innocent curiosity allows people from many countries, religions and ways of life to reveal their innermost convictions and feelings to her. Nowhere is this more poignant than in Syria.
Sanctified Sex draws on two thousand years of rabbinic debates addressing competing aspirations for loving intimacy, passionate sexual union, and sanctity in marriage. What can Judaism contribute to our struggles to nurture love relationships? What halakhic precedents are relevant, and how are rulings changing? The rabbis, of course, seldom agree. Underlying their arguments are perennial debates: What kind of marital sex qualifies as ideal-sacred self-control of sexual desire or the holiness found in emotional and erotic intimacy? Is intercourse degrading in its physicality or the highest act of spiritual/mystical union? And should women or men (or both) wield ultimate say about what transpires in bed? Noam Sachs Zion guides us chronologically and steadily through fraught terrain: seminal biblical texts and their Talmudic interpretations; Talmud tales of three unusual rabbis and their marital bedrooms; medieval codifiers and mystical commentators; ultra-Orthodox rabbis clashing with one another over radically divergent ideals; and finally, contemporary rabbis of varied denominations wrestling with modern transformations in erotic lifestyles and values. Invited into these sanctified and often sexually explicit discussions with our ancestors and contemporaries, we encounter innovative Jewish teachings on marital intimacy, ardent lovemaking techniques, and the art of couple communication vital for matrimonial success.
This book comprises responses by a Sufi master, Hadrat Sahib of the Naqshbandi tradition, to letters written by students of the master. The questions posed in these letters cover a wide range of issues including, financial problems, health issues, family matters, education and bereavement. The advice given by the master reveals a deep spirituality which places the particular student's problem in context and details a specific method of offering oneself to God at all times. It is difficult to find such detail relating to spiritual practices in Sufi literature. These letters are inspirational and timeless. They provide a cure to a world dominated by materialism and all its attendant miseries.
Letters to Marc About Jesus is a beautiful collection of Henri Nouwen's very intimate and very enlightening writings to Marc, his nineteen-year-old nephew, who struggles to find his true path in a world of confusion and apathy. Written with Nouwen's characteristic grace and wisdom, these letters bear witness to his conviction that anyone can find lasting spiritual fulfillment if they simply take the time to maintain a daily awareness of Jesus in every aspect of life. Powerful and profound, Letters to Marc About Jesus is Nouwen at his best--teacher, guide, and mentor--and will provide the direction and inspiration necessary for any believer to change his or her life.
This is an astrology book about the planets in the houses. Clear descriptions explain the actions of ten planets in each of the twelve astrological houses that relate to the main areas of life including money, family, relationships and work. The talents and abilities that a person may take for granted but, with awareness could develop further, are described for each planetary placement. By understanding that challenges are learning opportunities a person may be able to cope with them better. Spiritual perspectives suggest what the soul may be learning from daily experiences and how the spirit of a person is striving to attain its highest aspirations. The book is straightforward and easy to follow. It can be used like a textbook by student astrologers and may assist experienced astrologers to consider a more spiritual way of looking at horoscopes.
Kevin Cann's book is about understanding God ideas vs. Good ideas. God gives each person His ideas. The difficult part is determining if the idea is from our Spirit or Soul. I want to help the Body of Christ find their God idea and share it with the world.
Merit Award, 2007 World Guild Christian Living Book Praying is an action. Praying is an action that is of the essence of Christian existence. It involves our beliefs, emotions, values, hopes and fears, certainties and uncertainties, knowledge and ignorance. As J. I. Packer and Carolyn Nystrom explain, this book "is a heart-to-heart affair, in which two Christians who try to pray and wish they prayed better share thoughts about what they are doing with people whom they envisage as being like themselves. . . . Our aim is not just to clarify Christian understanding but to foster Christian living. In real praying, head, heart and hands go together." With wisdom, humility and sincerity the authors lead us through different moods of praying, including brooding, praising, asking, complaining and hanging on. InPraying the authors offer hope for those of us who daydream when we try to listen to God and stumble when we try to speak. Yet they don't just teach us about prayer; they challenge and inspire us to do it by pointing us to a clearer realization of the reality of God and his character. Let Packer and Nystrom come alongside you to encourage and guide your active praying to our powerful God, and let him move your praying through mere duty to delight.
David Tabor (1913-2005) was a highly respected and much loved member of the Cambridge Jewish community for almost sixty years. This book contains his Kol Nidre addresses, Bar Mitzvah talks and funeral eulogies, as well as a selection of poems, articles and other talks on Jewish topics.
This book is founded on the premise that being a servant of 'the kingdom community' must become the heart of the church's mission. Unless this happens Christians will have little to offer to a world now facing an ultimate choice between community and chaos. To fulfil this mission the mould of Christendom needs to be broken so that a new form of church - the diaconal church - can come into being. This will mean a church open to dialogue, a laity liberated from clericalism and the creation of a servant leadership. The book includes an informative evaluation of five original case-studies of the diaconal church in action and the diaconal potential of five worldwide Christian 'renewal movements'.
In Bill Vincent's more than 20 years of ministry, there has been countless spirits and demons that he has personally been allowed by God's grace to overcome in many people's lives. There have been various kinds but none as dangerous as the spirit of Jezebel. This book is as no other Bill has written because of the history of dealing with this spirit so many times over the years. The Church doesn't need to take this lightly. Bill brings this timely message several ways to bring clarity. This book isn't just for light reading, don't just skim the surface because there is much that the Holy Spirit is releasing through this book. In the years, Bill has learned a great deal more about this principality, this strongman, and how it operates. After writing Defeating the Demonic Realm Bill never thought he would be releasing a book this powerful again concerning spiritual warfare. We need to understand failure to address the weaknesses and sinful responses have wreaked havoc in the lives of men and women everywhere. The Jezebel Spirit must be overcome before it destroys you!"
