YOUR FORGOTTEN SELF Mirrored in Jesus The Christ David Robert Ord
If you are a follower of Jesus, you have a glorious hope. You expect, someday, to be like Jesus - to be the loving, joyful, peaceful person you see in him. In the meantime, along with millions who hold this hope, you live with feelings of inadequacy, if not defeat, in the present. What, then, of Jesus' promise that we can experience a magnificent life here and now? What about the "peace that passes understanding" and "joy unspeakable" he promised us in our everyday lives?
YOUR FORGOTTEN SELF asserts that if you see Jesus as different from yourself, you have no hope of enjoying the fulfilling life he lived. It argues that, instead of being fundamentally different from us, Jesus was the embodiment of the essence of our humanity. In the view of Jesus' early followers, to be a believer is to see yourself as Jesus saw himself. To have faith is to become aware that you have already been "raised up" with Christ into the heavens - a state of divine consciousness - and are at this moment blessed with "every spiritual blessin". The kingdom of YOUR FORGOTTEN SELF invites you to see yourself with new eyes. When this happens, the power of the Christ floods into your everyday circumstances. You experience life as Jesus experienced it. You begin to live as Jesus in the present moment.
YOUR INVISIBLE POWER The Mental Science of Thomas Troward Genevie Behrend
RESPECT, TRUST, COMMITMENT. These are the cornerstones of a dedicated relationship between a teacher and a student. For a passionate student yearning to learn and understand the essence of a subject, they must demonstrate these traits before a teacher will take them under their wing. In this case, the teacher was Thomas Troward of Cornwall England and the student was Genevieve Behrend.
Not long after her time with Troward, Behrend began her mission in New York City where she established and headed The School of the Builders up until 1925. She then established another school in Los Angeles before touring other major cities throughout North America for the next 35 years as a celebrated lecturer, teacher, and practitioner of Mental Science. Behrend presents the Troward philosophy at its best because of the way her incomparably direct, and dynamic personality relates the life-changing concepts on a personal level. Now it's up to you to respect, trust, and commit.

YOUR MYTHIC JOURNEY Finding Meaning in Your Life Through Writing and Storytelling Sam Keen & Anne Valley-Fox
This book offers readers the tools to detect the story line in their own lives and write and tell it in a step-by-step way, opening up a hidden world of self-discovery and meaning.
We all tell stories about who we are, where we come from, and where we are going. These personal myths in turn shape who we become and what we believe—as individuals, families, and nations. This book offers readers the tools to detect the story line in their own lives and to write and tell it to others, opening up a hidden world of self-discovery and meaning. The numerous accessible exercises are followed by examples of personal stories and inspiring quotes to stimulate the journey to the center of one's purpose.
"By the art of fantasy and imagination, story and image, these authors map the ways personal stories deepen into transpersonal mythic journeys." —David Miller, Ph.D., Watson-Ledden Professor of Religion, Syracuse University
Hailed by many astrologers as a classic, this book not only maps our strengths and weaknesses, but also reveals the true purpose of astrology: to guide us toward our own self-realization. Books on the sun signs rarely emphasize self-help. What most of them say is, "This is the nature you were born with. Enjoy it, or learn to live with it." By contrast, this book tells the reader, "Here are things you can do to improve the nature you were born with."
Swami Kriyananda's studies embrace Indian as well as Western astrology. He shows how extraordinarily sophisticated this ancient science is in its careful delineation of twelve basic categories of human nature. Your Sun Sign as A Spiritual Guide, however, goes far beyond merely intellectual discussion. Fresh, humorous, and full of wisdom, it provides a wealth of original insight in a field burdened by the thoughtless repetition of carelessly worked-out theories. The specific lessons of each sun sign are described with clarity and relevance and a particular meditation practice is suggested for each.
All the ancient teachings stress the importance, to any true understanding of the astrological science, of the faculty of intuition. The convincing insights Kriyananda offers into human nature are born of forty years of meditative practice, as well as of a lifetime of experience in counseling others. It is, above all, his intuitive grasp of his subject that gives this book its unique flavor.
YOUR WORD IS FIRE The Hasidic Masters on Contemplative Prayer Arthur Green
The power of prayer for spiritual renewal and personal transformation is at the core of all religious traditions. Because Hasidic literature contains no systematic manual of contemplative prayer, the texts included in this volume have been culled from many sources. From the teachings of the Hasidic Master, the editors have gleaned “hints as to the various rungs of inner prayer and how they are attained.”
YUGAS Keys to Understanding Our Hidden Past, Emerging Energy Age and Enlightened Future Joseph Selbie and David Steinmetz
The current explanation of history cannot explain ancient anomalies, such as the Pyramids and advanced scientific and mathematical knowledge contained in India's hoary Vedas - but in 1894 an Indian sage gave us an explanation not only for our hidden past, but for the trends of today and for our future enlightenment - a 24,000 year cycle of human development.
The Yugas reveal: · advanced knowledge and higher civilisations in the ancient past · evolving consciousness and human potential through the yugas - mental telepathy, overcoming time and space · present trends in our age of energy · man's enlightened future - paradise on earth
The concept of the yugas is critically important for a clear understanding of humankind's ancient past, our potential future, and the way the larger cosmic environment influences humanity's changing consciousness. The conventional mainstream view of an overall linear progression in human history is no longer tenable; it is now clear that the ancients of 10,000 to 15,000 years ago were not “primitives” and we have much to learn from them. Based on the teachings of Sri Yukteswar, The Yugas by Joseph Selbie and David Steinmetz provides a perceptive analysis of history from the height of the last Satya Yuga (Spiritual Age) of circa 11,500 B.C. to our present age. Just as importantly, the authors discuss trends and developments that we may anticipate over the next 10,000 years as the cycle of the yugas comes full circle. The Yugas integrates and synthesizes disparate facts and apparent anomalies that are often ignored.
"This is a profound book on a profound subject. Intelligently written and fascinating, it provides new revelations on the unfolding of human potential over the course of millennia. --Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.
"An amazing, mind-expanding investigation of the hidden cycles underlying the rise and fall of civilizations. I found The Yugas not only intellectually convincing but also spiritually and emotionally uplifting and deeply healing as well. Despite the dark signs of the times we live in there is hope here for all of us."—Graham Hancock, author Fingerprints of the Gods
