In essence, the title says it all. This book gives practical and powerful tools that will enable anyone to grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally and consciously. This book is the result of twenty years of training with four spiritual Masters in this dimension, and seventeen years of teaching and training hundreds of students around the world. Michael demystifies what is often considered beyond our understanding. His writing is clear, direct and easy to read. The information is presented in such a way that people at all levels of consciousness will learn a great deal from this work. Regardless if you are now beginning your path consciously, or have been working consciously for decades, this book will spring you into the next levels of being and understanding. In fact, the text can be read year after year, and new realizations will come each time. This book is multi-leveled, packed with inner meaning and wisdom that speaks directly to the soul. Just the fact that you've delved this far in your investigation of this book, are now reading even the first sentence of it's introduction, speaks volumes about you: Primarily, it says you're considering - maybe even hoping? - that something you need will be found within its pages. And we both know you didn't just stumble upon a book about how to spiritualize no less than every aspect of your life while looking for some light reading. No, we are here together because you're looking for answers. Good, because that's what Michael Fikaris' book provides. Secondarily it says that you're not someone who's interested in a book containing three or four spiritual truths repeated fifteen different ways over three hundred pages. Nope. It reveals you to be the type of person who says, 'Give it to me now, all of it - I can take it'. Good again, because this book will do just that: give it to you straight, without the airy-fairy rainbows and halos, not that there's anything wrong with that.

The Evolving Soul is dedicated to the notion that we are all on a path of spiritual evolution and that we are meant to become highly evolved super-beings. It is not about the idea of a far-off concept such as heaven, but involves our capacity to live in a state of complete peace and harmony while living in this increasingly busy world. It is about how the Universe is teaching us to evolve every day. This book also explores the varying levels of spiritual growth through which we all progress, moving from resistance to tolerance, and eventually into full acceptance. It also examines how these varying states of evolution relate to relationships, ego, hidden issues, inner decisions, true happiness, and unconditional love. The Evolving Soul is designed as a guide toward the highly evolved path of finding true peace amidst the chaos. Through simple hands-on principles, it offers meaningful guidance toward a greater awareness of how life is trying to teach us to find this extraordinary state of being.

The Oneness Circle Handbook offers a life-transforming journey filled with heart-felt connections. The Oneness Circle is a structured meeting of people who believe that all are part of the same energy called Oneness. Wanting to accept the highest and best in themselves and each other, members meet to share miracles, prompts and affirmations. The detailed structure within The Oneness Circle Handbook provides the agenda, the timeline of sharing, and the ten steps of expressing affirmations. These steps honor and celebrate the great wisdom within each person as members affirm their trust, connection and co-creation with Oneness energy. Sharing in the Oneness Circle with spiritual partners brings strength and confidence in the ability to hear the wisdom within and to follow its direction. Through the practice of listening to the inner voice and allowing it to blossom into expression, inner guidance flows creatively, lovingly, and powerfully. As members listen with open hearts to affirmations and then take turns echoing back the essence of each one, it is a moving experience for both the giver, the receiver, and all who are present. Empowering! Oneness Circle is an amazing practice for encouraging us to tune in and honor our intuitionto acknowledge and appreciate miracles and manifestations that occurall the while awakening to who we really are. Heather Popio, member of the Oneness Circle, pilot at a major airline. Study of Oneness principles opens minds. Living of Oneness principles opens hearts.

Harness the power of an integrative approach to couples counseling! Why do marriages fail? The behaviorist or cognitive therapist explains that unhappy couples have self-defeating ways of thinking about their spouses and themselves. The sociologically oriented counselor points to the impact of social trends and dramatic changes in child-rearing and social expectations. A therapist oriented toward psychodynamics or systems theory sees the destructive patterns of childhood replayed in the marriage, with spouses taking on rigid roles. The pastoral or humanist counselor believes that partners who cannot experience self-fulfillment through commitment and trust will feel less love and grow more and more disconnected. Couples Therapy, Second Edition, brings together all these points of view to make a unified whole. This integrative approach proposes a new model of successful marriage based on four cornerstones: resiliency, social support, adaptability, and self-fulfillment. Weaving together theory and research, Couples Therapy, Second Edition, explores how common issues can lead to trouble in relationships. It suggests specific interventions so therapists can teach clients to deal with such problem areas as anger management, domestic violence, depression, anxiety, parenting conflicts, in-laws, work pressures, and sexual dissatisfaction. Couples Therapy, Second Edition, offers a sound theoretical framework as well as practical ideas. Through clinical vignettes and up-to-date research, it makes the common conflicts and developmental stages of marriage so understandable that it can be profitably read by clients as well as counselors. Its invaluable resources for the couples therapist include: end-of-chapter professional development questions therapeutic exercises answers to frequently asked professional and ethical questions intervention suggestions for the therapist self-assessment questionnaires book and video recommendations on each chapter topic Written in clear, readable prose, Couples Therapy, Second Edition, offers practical help for the experienced clinician as well as theoretical overviews for the counselor in training.

We have reached Zero Point in our personal and collective consciousness and are now in a phase of accelerated conscious evolution and manifestation of personal and collective vision. As the current political, economic, and social systems begin to collapse, people are instinctively and intuitively reevaluating their lives and asking what has real meaning and value and what brings them true peace and happiness. Humanity is now poised to establish a unified, co-creative new world that reflects the evolved consciousness of awakened hearts and minds, of collaboration, and of peace. Presenting a guide for these auspicious times, Nicolya Christi offers psychological and spiritual tools to accelerate conscious and global evolution and initiate a New Consciousness for the post–December 21st, 2012, epoch. She gives an in-depth overview of religion and spirituality, both the old paradigm and the evolving new one, and explains how all trauma results from “empathic disconnection,” which hinders our spiritual growth. She provides spiritual practices to manifest a meaningful connection between Self and God/Source/Creator as well as psychological exercises to heal and integrate the shadow self and dissolve psychological wounds. She offers the first fully written account of the First Nations Peoples’ oral wisdom teachings on the 7 Dark, 7 Light, and 7 Rainbow Arrows for evolving consciousness. She also writes in depth about the evolution of relationship and aspiring to a higher love and sexuality. Detailing several maps and models for conscious and global evolution, this handbook inspires each of us toward a consciously evolving spirituality and a true and authentic relationship with God/Source/Creator.

The wisdom that the 2012 code can inspire in us is to look directly at our lives, right here and now: What are our spiritual guiding principles? How can we live in greater harmony with all our personal relations? How can we embody genuine compassion? How can we become increasingly aware and self-reflective? How can we deepen our humility? How can we share our talents and gifts as a way to influence our culture and help manifest the new paradigm? How can we be of service to life, and positively contribute to the whole? How can we cultivate a balance of being and doing, receptivity and action? On this diverse planet, we all have different strengths, different abilities, different callings. Rather than looking to the world to show us our path, we need to look deep within our spiritual being and listen to our inner sense of how to navigate these times of the great unknown. It is essential we learn to hear the voice of our inner wisdom, our spiritual self. No one can give us wisdom; it is within all of us, born of our own direct experience. We each have our own direct connection to our spirit, and we must keep learning how to hear our divine, intuitive directives, whispering within. Th is ability to hear the voice of our inner guidance is the most practical skill we can cultivate in these times. It is what will inform us to how to synchronize in the right place at the right time.

This is an introductory guide to Process Theology for undergraduates. As part of Contiuum's 'Guide for the Perplexed' series, this text provides an accessible introduction to process theology, aimed at nurturing the theological imagination of undergraduates, pastors and interested laypersons. It describes the major themes of process theology and relates them to the everyday lives and spiritual commitments of people today. In addition to addressing traditional theological issues, Epperly addresses cutting edge issues in theology and ethics such as pluralism and postmodernism, matters of life and death, science (technology and genetics), and emerging forms of Christianity. This text is designed for seminary and university classes as well as congregational study. It will help readers to overcome the obstacles created by the technical language often employed by process theologians. Continuum's Guides for the Perplexed are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering. Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.

Die Zukunft Gottes

Eine praktische Annäherung an die Spiritualität für unsere Zeit

Author: Deepak Chopra

Publisher: Driediger Verlag

ISBN: 3932130413

Category: Religion

Page: 300

View: 602

Kann Gott in einem skeptischen Zeitalter wiederbelebt werden? Was wäre nötig, um den Menschen ein spirituelles Leben zu geben, kraftvoller als alles, was es in der Vergangenheit je gab? Deepak Chopra greift diese Fragen mit Eloquenz und Tiefe in seinem neuen Buch auf. Sein überzeugender Rat: Gott an der Quelle des menschlichen Bewusstseins zu suchen. Er findet sich in jedem von uns selbst und mit ihm auch die Kraft, das eigene Leben zu verwandeln. Gott ist in Schwierigkeiten. Mit dem Aufstieg des militanten Atheismus, einer aggressiv-polemischen Bewegung angeführt von Richard Dawkins, haben viele Menschen resigniert und sich der Idee gebeugt, dass Gott ein überholter Mythos in der modernen Welt sei. Die Argumente scheinen zu stark. Doch tief in sich spüren sie eine andere Wahrheit und die unerschütterliche Sehnsucht nach höherem Sinn, nach einer Gegenwart Gottes. Deepak Chopra widerspricht den Argumenten jener atheistischen Bewegung mit Kompetenz und Leidenschaft. Vielmehr sieht er im Hier und Jetzt die perfekte Zeit für eine neue Spiritualität, die vor allem eines sein sollte: verlässliche Erkenntnis einer höheren Wirklichkeit. Indem er einen Weg zu Gott skizziert, der den Unglauben zu einem ersten Schritt des Erwachens macht, zeigt Chopra uns, dass die Krise des Glaubens wie Feuer ist, durch das wir hindurch müssen auf dem Weg zur Kraft, Wahrheit und Liebe. Auch in der Wissenschaft haben sich längst Dogmen etabliert, an denen zu rütteln das Ende der eigenen Karriere bedeuten kann. "Doch im Gegensatz zu religiösen Fundamentalisten sind sich wissenschaftliche Ideologen nicht bewusst, dass ihre Weltsicht allein auf Glauben basiert. Sie meinen, sie kennen die Wahrheit. Sie glauben, die Wissenschaft habe die wesentlichen Fragen bereits gelöst." So hat Szientismus die schädliche Wirkung, jede Art von Denken und Forschung zu unterdrücken, die nicht den etablierten Richtlinien entspricht. "Der Glaube muss zum Wohle aller bewahrt werden", schreibt Chopra.

"The Way of the Superior Man is quite wonderful. Finally, a guide for the noncastrated male. This book will offend and infuriate some, inspire and test others, but challenge virtually everybody. I found it wise, insightful, occasionally brilliant, and always resourceful. To transcend the body-mind means to transcend and include its sexuality, not transcend and evaporate it. Few are the books that discuss strong sexuality within strong spirituality, instead of tepid sexuality diluted by a mediocre spiritual stance. This book steps straightforwardly into the challenge. Love it or loathe it, it is a shout from the heart of one perspective of the eternal masculine." —Ken Wilber, author of Sex, Ecology, Spirituality; No Boundary; and Grace and Grit "At last! A book that explains the heart and soul of a woman to men. As a woman, I've never felt so understood and validated. This book is a key to helping men and women take their relationships one step further. Finally, a clear and brilliant guide to unraveling the mystery of relationships." —Marci Shimoff, co-author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul "The Way of the Superior Man lays out a challenge before all men to fulfill their true purpose and to be authentically masculine. It will guide you on your journey to a successful and spiritually complete way of life. I invite you to live in the moment, to love openly, and to step up to the plate with this book in your hand." —Tony Robbins, author of Awaken the Giant Within and Unlimited Power The Ultimate Spiritual Guide for Men What is your true purpose in life? What do women really want? What makes a good lover? If you're a man reading this, you've undoubtedly asked yourself these questions—but you may not have had much luck answering them. Until now. In The Way of the Superior Man, David Deida explores the most important issues in men's lives—from career and family to women and intimacy to love and spirituality and relationships—to offer a practical guidebook for living a masculine life of integrity, authenticity, and freedom. Join this bestselling author and internationally renowned expert on sexual spirituality for straightforward advice, empowering skills, body practices, and more to help you realize a life of fulfillment, immediately and without compromise. "It is time to evolve beyond the macho jerk ideal, all spine and no heart," writes David Deida. "It is also time to evolve beyond the sensitive and caring wimp ideal, all heart and no spine." The Way of the Superior Man presents the ultimate challenge—and reward—for today's man: to discoverthe 'unity of heart and spine' through the full expression of consciousness and love in the infinite openness of the present moment. Contents Part One: A Man's Way Part Two: Dealing With Women Part Three: Working With Polarity and Energy Part Four: What Women Really Want Part Five: Your Dark Side Part Six: Feminine Attractiveness Part Seven: Body Practices Part Eight: Men's and Women's Yoga of Intimacy Excerpt: This book is a guide for a specific kind of newly evolving man. This man is unabashedly masculine-- he is purposeful, confident, and directed, living his chosen way of life with deep integrity and humor-- and he is sensitive, spontaneous, and spiritually alive, with a heart-commitment to discovering and living his deepest truth. This newly evolving man is not a scared bully, posturing like some King Kong in charge of the universe. Nor is he a new age wimp, are spineless, smiley, and starry-eyed. He has embraced both his inner masculine and feminine, and he no longer holds onto either of them. He doesn't need to be right all the time, nor does he need to always be safe, cooperative, and sharing, like an androgynous Mr. Nice Guy. He simply lives from his deepest core, fearlessly living his gifts, feeling through the fleeting moment into the openness of existence, totally committed to magnifying love.
