This book, which draws on the principles and practices of philosophy, is packed full of sound, concrete advice and guidance from the wise of both East and West. It shows us how to become free of fear—that tyrant of the soul by living more from the Self than the ego. Dr. Costello details the dynamics of fear from the perspective of Advaita Vedanta—its forms and figures—before presenting the nine fundamental fears with the help of the Enneagram system. There are Stoic strategies for facing fears, existential exercises, and recommended daily practices. Dr. Costello writes as both a philosopher and clinician and brings to this fascinating subject, in which we’re all implicated, his erudition in both theory and therapy. The work complements his online course hosted by Udemy, “Therapy Technique for Anxiety, Phobias, & OCD,” which highlights the importance of “paradoxical intention,” derived from Viktor Frankl’s school of philosophical psychology.

Most of us have never experienced such deep anxiety and uncertainty in the world as we are in these current times; this anthology of Buddhist teachings offers an antidote. While we can’t control the home foreclosures, job losses, dwindling savings, and the other myriad challenges facing our society, Buddhism teaches us that there is one thing we can always control: our own state of mind. How we react to the ups and downs of life makes all the difference, and Buddhism offers a wealth of wisdom and practices to help us maintain a stable, wise, and helpful state of mind no matter what happens. In the Face of Fear shows us how to • remain open, joyful, and caring, even when life is stressful • avoid old behavior patterns that only make things worse • access our innate confidence and fearlessness • turn difficult times into opportunities for spiritual development • learn why caring for others is the best way to relieve our own suffering • discover that our true nature is always awake, wise, and good, no matter what is happening This anthology features the greatest contemporary Buddhist teachers and writers—people renowned for addressing precisely the problems we’re facing today—including the Dalai Lama, Pema Chödrön, Thich Nhat Hanh, Chögyam Trungpa, Sylvia Boorstein, Jack Kornfield, Norman Fischer, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Sharon Salzberg, and many others.

This guide to embracing your true self is “a classic, a masterpiece, yet it is so honest that each time you read it, it speaks with a fresh, new voice” (Hugh Prather, author of The Little Book of Letting Go). Surrounded by the pressures of society, we often measure ourselves by impossible standards. We see images of idealized women and become scared that our own bodies, personalities, or ambitions do not measure up. Author and therapist Sue Patton Thoele knows what it’s like to be scared and unsure of your place. And she knows how to transform these fears into resilience. If our days are riddled with negative self-talk, our happiness inevitably suffers. Unhealthy mindsets can also infiltrate our relationships with others. Women, especially, feel the need to be caretakers, looking out for the needs of others and, often, putting those needs above our own. By learning how to identify these patterns, we can target areas that require change in our lives. In this motivational book, Thoele shares her personal story, as well as other women’s, in order to help readers learn how to journey from a place of fear to a life of courageous self-love and acceptance. In The Courage to Be Yourself discover how to set boundaries, communicate more effectively, and change self-deprecating behavior patterns. This collection of stories of growth and healing from Thoele and other women come together to make the perfect gift for women of all ages

The excellence of God s word and grace helps us to be strong and wiser in our beliefs and wear the appropriate armor of righteousness. It also shares the unfeigned love by the Holy Spirit. Without the word the outer man will soon perish, and the inner man is renewed. Your word is forever and it gives us favors by God and his strength. Thank you for letting your word be manifested in our consciences. It offers life eternally, good health, protection, and light unto our path. Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven and established upon the earth. Your word enlarges our heart with joy and peace. We may be troubled, but we don t have to live in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed. We are thankful that your death worketh life for us. It is because of the written word that we believe in Jesus. We give thanks for being of the same spirit. Your word also worketh through repentance to salvation. It encourages us to walk upright in a godly manner. In conclusion, we know if we are in the world that worketh death. We are grateful our body is your earthly treasure. Amen.

Personal meditations on the wondrous and exalted idea of Freedom in all its rich and varied fecundity. Now with over 7,000 million of us on this earth, what could freedom possibly mean for us as earthlings, and as dreaming creatures always asking at every bend in the road about the meaning and purpose of our lives, and the yearning to cut the rope and be free? Freedom is at the heart of creation; these beautifully expressed thoughts on the meaning of freedom in our intricate and challenging world by an original and provocative thinker, are a delight to read. –Dr. Khalid Sohail, Psychotherapist & Poet, Canada In the company of great thinkers, philosophers and poets of all ages, and honed by the testimony of all that is good and evil in mankind, Sehdev Kumar has presented before us a resounding YES to the centuries-old question: “Am I my brother’s keeper?” –Dr. Máximo Barón.
