WHISPERED NOTES A Devotional Hymnal Janice Gray Kolb and Robert A. Kolb, Jr.
As these meditations and hymns were being typed, my husband discovered amongst his music a group of his hymns that he had forgotten existed. Because of the lost meditations he had set these hymns aside. Now found, he asked if I might again ask the Holy Spirit to give us meditations to accompany each hymn so that we might have fifty-two of each, one set for every week of the year. At first I was afraid to ask Him, for the meditations received in prayer ten years ago were given as if in a package, encapsulated in a period of time and in His love and then were finished. Yes, I had heard Him speak to me in prayer over and over again since then—but these meditations were unique.

Edited by his disciple Swami Kryananda
One of the great prayer scriptures of all time is now available in paperback. Yogananda told his disciples to read WHISPERS FROM ETERNITY every day – that through these prayers, he would guide them after his passing. With imagery that is vividly beautiful and powerfully alive, Yogananda's prayers draw God into every aspect of everyday life, as the nearest and dearest beloved.
Many poetic works can inspire, but few, like this one, have the power to change your life. These verses rank with the greatest mystical poetry of all time: the works of St. John of the Cross, Rumi, Kabir, Mirabai and Omar Khayyam. In this book Paramhansa Yogananda - the great master of yoga and author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi - shares his exquisitely beautiful thoughts and words filled with longing for the divine. Yogananda was not only a spiritual master, but a master poet, whose poems revealed the hidden divine presence behind even everyday things.
Each of these prayer-poems has been spiritualised by this great man of God. Open this book, pick a poem at random and read it. Mentally repeat whatever phrase appeals to you. Within a short time, you will see your consciousness transformed. This book has the power to rapidly accelerate your spiritual growth and provides hundreds of delightful ways for you to begin your own conversation with God.
This beautiful book opens a mystical window on the devotional experience of ecstasy. Sharing soul-awakening prayers and affirmations born directly of his high personal state of God-communion, the celebrated author of Autobiography of a Yogi shows readers how to achieve their own ecstatic perception of the Divine.
Yogananda said, "Let every beat of my heart be a new word in my endless love lyric to Thee. May every sound from my lips carry secret vibrations of Thy voice. Let my every thought be bliss-saturated with Thy presence."

WHITE EAGLE ON DIVINE MOTHER The Feminine and the Mysteries Jenny Beeken
This book reminds us that spiritual and material life has always been governed not just by God the Father, but, also, by God the Mother. It is the blending of these two energies which produces the power of the Christ within our own being and in the world. The raising of the solar force and the return to the wisdom of the feminine is the natural counterbalance to the greater development of the mind in the Age of Aquarius.
This the first in a brilliant new series of White Eagle guides to spiritual understanding is about how the landmarks in the year - the seasons Easter Christmas the equinoxes and so on - enable us to build a rich spiritual practice. White Eagle argues that the passage of the earth around the Sun is still a fundamental reality in our lives and living attuned to it brings sunlight into everyone's life.
A book for all who are seeking actively to work in harmony with the spiritual laws that underlie all life. It is therefore for those who wish to live more harmoniously, courageously and with more awareness. It is, also, for those who wish to bring balance and peace to their individual lives and to the world.
White Eagle gives a broad picture of divine laws which are eternal and omniscient.
An in-depth account of where we derive the intuition from and how, as part of a sound spiritual practice, we can develop it and learn to trust and use our 'sixth sense'. The path of opening up the intuitive side of our being is one of progressive initiation into awareness on all levels.
Developing a conscious awareness of angels can help us through times of challenge and times of joy. Their presence is ever there and as we awaken to this, our lives become enhanced and enriched by their powerful loving support.
White Eagle's Little Book of Angels is a careful selection of teaching from spirit, organised so that White Eagle's words and the reader's intuition lead to the discovery of a specific angel for every need.
White Eagle says that humanity and angels have evolved on different streams of life and while our guides, loved ones and spiritual teachers on the other side of life, are on the same stream as we are, angels come from a parallel stream of life. They, however watch over us giving non-judgmental, loving, compassionate understanding.
Angels help us both individually and universally. It is very important that we consciously focus on them and work with them. They help us create harmony and balance in our lives and we help them by our constant attunement and awareness of their ever loving presence. We and they are all part of the brotherhood of life and by our cooperation we can work to restore ecological balance and harmony and give healing to our beloved Mother Earth.
WHITE EAGLE'S LITTLE BOOK OF COMFORT FOR THE BEREAVED
WHITE EAGLE'S LITTLE BOOK OF COMFORT FOR THE BEREAVED is essential reading for anyone who has 'lost' a loved one. In this new collection of the most comforting, helpful and informative passages of White Eagle's teaching on death, White Eagle deals with the subject so many of us long to understand: life after death. He guides us through the experience of passing into the world of light; helping us to make a beautiful spiritual contact with our loved ones there.
This book speaks to everyone, and helps us to know that in our personal experience of death, we are never alone.
From the book of the same name, but with extra material and beautifully read by Jenny Dent, this CD brings White Eagle's unique teaching about the angels to life!
With teaching on the angels of the elements, of music, of healing and our guardian angels, this CD allows us to attune to their presence and learn how to work with them. As you listen quietly and with love they draw very close! (cdxs)
This book of teaching has been specially compiled for people who are unwell, who fear illness or who are caring for the sick. White Eagle says that, hard though illness is, from a spiritual point of view it is a manifestation of growth, even of initiation. There is thus comfort to be found, always. The joy of White Eagle's teaching is that while he shows that sickness is used for the growth of the soul, he also reaches out in loving empathy to bring comfort and hope to the sufferer. When death comes as the ultimate healer, White Eagle is also there to help. There are gems for all in this inspiring book.
WHITE FIRE HB* A Potrait of Women Spiritual Leaders in America Malka Drucker Photographs by Gay Block
This remarkable book gives voice and image to the often ignored invisible or overlooked narrative women's spiritual leadership in America today. WHITE FIRE as in the title refers to the spaces that surround black letters and words on a page. It is a Talmudic tradition that the Bible was written with black fire on white fire. Today we can only read the 'black fire' but one day we may be able to read 'white fire.' Revealed through Malka Drucker's insightful interviews and Gay Block's compelling photographic portraits the women represent both diversity and sisterhood. Pioneering women ministers such as Bishop Leontine Kelly are profiled along with Yoruba priestess and writer Luisa Teish media star Iyanla Vanzant meditation teacher Sylvia Boorstein and best-selling author Marianne Williamson ashram leader Ma Jaya theologian Elaine Pagels anthropologist Jean Housten and other women who lead traditional and non-traditional communities. What they share is a passion a calling to serve and the female perspective that is now gaining its place in American spiritual life.
WHO ARE THE REAL CHOSEN PEOPLE? The Meaning of Chosenness in Judaism, Christianity and Islam Reuven Firestone
Religious people who define themselves as monotheists have often advanced the idea that their relationship with God is unique and superior to all others. Theirs supercedes those who came before and is superior to those who have followed. This phenomenon tends to be expressed in terms not only of supersessionism, but, also, “chosenness” or “election.” Who is most beloved by God? What expression of the divine will is the most perfect? Which relationship reflects God’s ultimate demands or desire?
In this fascinating examination of the religious phenomenon of chosenness, Reuven Firestone explores the idea of covenant and the expressions of supersessionism as articulated through the scriptures of the three major monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. He explores how and why the ongoing competition and friction between these religions came about and offers thoughts about how to overcome it.
WHO BY FIRE, WHO BY WATER Un'taneh Tokef Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman
Explore the profound, perplexing and persuasive power of Un'taneh Tokef, one of the most beloved, prominent and controversial pieces in the Ashkenazi High Holy Day liturgy. Interact with thought-provoking and inspiring discussions on all aspects of this prayer that defies easy understanding—its moral challenge, fatalistic theology, proclamation of God's holiness, call to human responsibility and prescription for redemption.
Commentaries from over forty men and women, scholars and rabbis, artists and poets from all major Jewish denominations examine Un'taneh Tokef from the viewpoints of the ancient Rabbis and modern theologians, as well as halakhic, Talmudic, linguistic, biblical, mystical, feminist, community and personal perspectives.
Prayers of Awe: A multi-volume series designed to explore the High Holy Day liturgy and enrich the praying experience for everyone, whether experienced worshippers or guests who encounter Jewish prayer for the first time. Each volume features traditional Hebrew text with a new translation that lets you know exactly what the prayer says. Introductions provide the foundations for the prayer—its history, authorship and legend.
WHO BY FIRE, WHO BY WATER HB Un'taneh Tokef Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman
A peculiar aspect of High Holy Day liturgy is the mediaeval poetry full of lessons and imagery that most modern worshippers find baffling. Un'taneh Tokef is a warning that at every New Year, God establishes, in advance, “who will live and who will die ... who by fire and who by water” - and by such deaths as “strangulation and warfare.” To be sure, “repentance, prayer and charity” can help, but how? With actual relief from dire fate? That hardly rings true to people who lost loved ones in tragic events such as 9/11, for example; or to cancer at a tragically young age. How then can we even say this most famous of New Year prayers?
Over forty contributors who span three continents and all major Jewish denominations examine the prayer's theology, authorship and poetry through a set of lively essays, all written in accessible language. They are men and women, scholars and rabbis, artists and poets. An introduction traces the actual history of the prayer and its authorship. A new translation is accompanied by detailed notes that connect the prayer to its biblical and rabbinic roots.
