Reflecting on a celebrated passage from The Imitation of Christ - one of the most enduring Christian documents of all time - Eknath Easwaran offers insights into the practical means to make Jesus' love come alive in everyday life. This warm, anecdotal book shows us what love is, how to love more effectively, and how to overcome obstacles to loving more fully. Drawing on his wide experience as a teacher of meditation and his intimate knowledge of the Christian mystical tradition, Easwaran gives exhilarating glimpses of what love means to Christian mystics like Augustine, Teresa of Avila, Catherine of Genoa, and others. An essay by Carol Lee Flinders relates the personal story of Thomas a Kempis and a short overview of the flowering of mysticism in the late Middle Ages. Included are brief instructions in eight basic spiritual practices that anyone can use in his or her present context to strengthen the capacity to love.

In 1963, Jane Roberts, an intelligent and somewhat skeptical writer and college graduate, began to receive a series of communications from "an energy essence personality" who called himself Seth. Psychic investigator Richard Roberts has chosen from some 3,000 pages the most thought-provoking and helpful of Seth words from eight Seth books ranging from The Seth Material (1970) to the last book Dreams, "Evolution," and Value Fulfillment (1986). Among the topics are the nine "families of consciousness, the evolution of Earth and its creatures, how thoughts form reality, how we create our lives from the dream state, the illusion of time, simultaneous incarnations, "probable" alternate selves, unknown realities, the three "Christs," and the eternal validity of the soul.

In this elegant, authoritative, and entirely accessible book, he sets out to answer these questions.

In this brilliant short book and the accompanying audio download, Ricard talks us through the theory, spirituality, and practical aspects of meditation. He illustrates each stage of his teaching with examples, leading readers deeper into their own practice. Through his experience as a monk, his close reading of sacred texts, and his deep knowledge of the Buddhist masters, Ricard shows the significant benefits that meditation, based on selfless love and compassion, can bring to each of us.
Living a better-feeling life really comes down to one thing only: coming into alignment with the Energy of our Source. Abraham reminds us that we are truly Source Energy focused into our physical bodies, and that a conscious Connection to that Broader Non-Physical part of us is necessary if we are to be the joyful Beings that we were born to be. Abraham calls that wonderful alignment Getting into the Vortex. Through a series of Leading Edge books (New York Times bestsellers), Abraham has emphasized the importance of our conscious alignment with the Source within us. They have let us know that our natural state of Being is inside our Vortex of Creation in complete alignment with Source Energy--and that every aspect of our physical experience reflects our alignment with, or resistance to, that Connection. Everything--from the physical well-being of our bodies, the clarity of our minds, and the abundance we allow to flow, to the satisfaction in every relationship we experience--is impacted by our all-important relationship with our Vortex. Abraham has helped us to understand that our dominant intent in every day is to get into the Vortex! And now, they have lovingly and specifically guided Jerry and Esther Hicks in the creation of an innovative and valuable tool that promises to get us into the Vortex right now . . . and that tool is enclosed in the Getting into the Vortex User Guide in the form of a 70-minute CD. This unique recording contains four powerfully guided daily meditations that have been designed to get you into the Vortex of Creation in four basic areas of your life: General Well-Being, Financial Well-Being, Physical Well-Being, and Relationships. Jerry and Esther are thrilled to offer this powerful, first-of-its kind, musically scored, breath-enhancing, user-friendly tool from Abraham that will get you into the Vortex.
