Philosophy: A Path with Heart is an autobiographically structured story of the author’s deeply personal, emotional, and engaging encounter with philosophy, psychology, and spiritual concerns of the mind and heart from the age of thirteen. Significantly more attention is paid to philosophy than biography. The reader is asked to consider the philosophical, moral, political, environmental, and spiritual issues on which the author has reflected, and with which he continues to dance. He cites in some detail the writings of Barry, Halifax, Harner, Illich, Jung, Kluckhohn, Marx, Parsons, Safina, Swimme, Shills, Tillich, and Wilber. The book attempts to inspire an appreciation of philosophy as an ongoing dialogue with one’s self and others. This dialogue is how his or her world is created, and directly responsible for forming the physical, social, and personal space in which they live. Philosophy is asking more of oneself than facile play with a Smartphone. Philosophy is creating a home for the soul as a house is constructed as a home for the body. What are you building for yourself and those around you?

These are excerpts taken from the teachings of Meditation Master Mark Griffin, relating concepts such as shaktipat, the divine nature of breath and the alchemy a guru performs to help us transform into our realized Self. One of the important themes you will find throughout the book is that our human form is a gift that allows us to awaken to eternal possibilities we never imagined. Mark allows us to see our inherent divine nature and claim our universal inheritance, which is to merge with the ocean of love, or God, from which we all emanate. These verses cover concepts such as the nature of Kundalini, the architecture of the human form, the transformation process of awakening, meditation and the challenges of living a spiritual life. Each discourse is short enough to read as a daily inspiration, and deep enough to totally reset your thinking and understanding of life itself. This is volume 5 of the Essential Spiritual Training series from Hard Light Publishing. Mark Griffin illuminates the process of awakening, not with a flashlight, but with a klieg light. Finally, a Westerner has undergone a profound and mysterious transformation, and returned to illuminate the path for us all. His enlightening and insightful book, 108 Discourses on Awakening is perfect for quickly finding your daily inspirational reading. Softcover book; 166 pages, 8.3" x 5.4".
