As a way of saying thank you to all those who have opened their hearts to her, author and school counselor Mrs. D. shares a journal created especially for them, presented in poetry and prose. A Familiar Voice Amidst the chaotic confusion, the office phone rings. Years have passed since the dismal dark voice on the other end So frantically fought back thoughts of taking her life.

Sharing authentic personal stories and profound life lessons, Kristen Moeller explores our pervasive human tendency to wait for life and to look outside ourselves for answers. What are you waiting for? Do you find yourself waiting for the right moment? The ideal relationship? The perfect job? Are you waiting for your “real” life to begin? Do think that the gifts of life are right around the corner? That one day you will arrive and everything will be okay? Do you endlessly search, yet never seem to find? Through the sharing of authentic personal stories and profound life lessons, Kristen Moeller explores our pervasive human tendency to wait for life and to look outside ourselves for answers. Too often we are “waiting for Jack”—whatever or whoever “Jack” is. So we don’t try; we give up. We sell out and we forget who we are. We are afraid to succeed, afraid to fail, and afraid to say we are afraid. But as Wayne Gretzky said, “You’ll always miss one hundred percent of the shots you don’t take!” Waiting for Jack will inspire you to get on the path, move forward and take the shot. And. to remember that you don’t have to wait for Jack! “Refreshingly vulnerable, witty and wise. Waiting for Jack feels like a conversation with your best friend over coffee. With an honest approach and take action message, Kristen Moeller motivates readers to make it happen. This book is a special gift!” —Robyn Spizman, New York Times–bestselling author

The #1 New York Times best-selling author Wayne Dyer has been inspiring people to change their lives for many years. Now three of his most fascinating books are collected in this single volume: • The Power of Intention details Wayne’s research on intention as a force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. He explains that it is not something we do, but rather an energy we’re a part of. This is the first book to look at intention as a field of energy that we can access to begin co-creating our lives. • Inspiration dissects feelings of emptiness, the idea that there must be something more, and trying to determine the meaning of life . . . all evidence of a yearning to reconnect with our soul space. This book explains how we’ve chosen to enter this world of particles and form, and each chapter is filled with specifics for living an inspired life. From a very personal viewpoint, Wayne offers a blueprint through the world of Spirit to inspiration, our ultimate calling. • Excuses Begone! reveals how to change the self-defeating thinking patterns that have prevented us from living at the highest levels of success, happiness, and health. Wayne presents many of the conscious and subconscious crutches most of us employ, along with ways to cast them aside once and for all. The old, habituated ways of thinking will melt away as the absurdity of hanging on to them is exposed, and we ultimately come to realize that there are no excuses worth defending—ever. The Essential Wayne Dyer Collection is a must-read for those wanting to explore the power and potential of the human mind, as well as anyone who is finally ready to live the best life possible!

Piers Plowman

A Modern Verse Translation

DOWNLOAD NOW »
William Langland's 14th-century poem Piers Plowman is a disturbing and often humorous commentary on corruption and greed that remains meaningful today. The allegorical and satirical work revolves around the narrator's quest to live a good life, and takes the form of a series of dreams in which Piers, the honest plowman, appears in various guises. Characters such as Conscience, Fidelity and Charity tumble out of the text alongside Falsehood and Guile, and are instantly recognizable as our present-day politicians and celebrities, friends and neighbors. Along the way social issues are confronted, including governance, economic relations, criminal justice, public finance, marital relations and the limits of academic learning, as well as religious belief and the natural world. This book is a new verse translation of Piers from Middle English which preserves the energy, imagery and intent of the original, and retains its alliterative style. It derives from a 2012 arts festival presentation performed in the priory where Langland--a contemporary of Chaucer--was probably educated.

After the death of her parents and grandparents, eighteen-year-old Jewel Etchemendy, a Basque woman, inherits her family’s 28,000-acre sheep ranch in Johnson County, Wyoming. When she receives an anticipated, yet unwelcome, marriage proposal from her best friend—the son of the family who manages her ranch—she flees, abandoning everything while throwing herself into college and then serving in Iraq as a combat nurse. Jewel’s story begins after she leaves the military to return home. She finds herself in an Alaskan wilderness competition where she meets and falls in love with a man who takes her on an adventure of a lifetime, where she is forced to make the ultimate life or death decision to save herself. After meeting Grady McDonald, an ex-U.S. Army sniper from Belle Fourche, South Dakota, she learns to accept love again. Grady’s family becomes her own, and the love and support from them strengthens her enough to face her fears and return to everything she had abandoned in Wyoming. Still not content to simply settle in Wyoming, Jewel and Grady embark on another adventure that changes the course of their lives. What is supposed to be a simple trip to help provide humanitarian aid, turns into a nightmare that takes them as far as Uganda where they will have to survive harsh conditions, militant Inherahamwe rebels, and a hostage situation that takes them beyond their limits. Grady, along with a team of ex-military men from various branches of the armed services, will have to call on their military background and experience to free them from the grips of one of the most feared terrorists in Africa.

Dieses Buch, bestechend in seiner Einfachheit und Poesie, ist ein Augenöffner und Herzöffner für jeden, vom Anfänger in spirituellen Dingen bis zum "alten Hasen". Alle Hintertürchen werden sanft geschlossen, bis wir vor dem Jetzt stehen. Hier ist ein Tor, sagt Eckhart, nutze es! Die englischsprachige Version des Buches ist schon seit Monaten ein Geheimtipp, nun ist endlich die Übersetzung da. Kein Wunder, dass Eckhart Tolle so begehrt ist - die größten, tiefsten Wahr-heiten klingen bei ihm so einleuchtend, schlicht und klar, dass man plötzlich alles versteht, ja, nicht nur versteht, sondern erlebt. Dieser Moment, das Jetzt, das Hier, der Körper...so einfach ist der Fokus, und in der Einfachheit - welcher Reichtum! In jedem Wort schwingt das eigene Erleben des Autors mit, seine Demut, seine Liebe, seine Radikalität, sein Mitgefühl. Die Sprache ist exquisit und zugleich unbedingt präzise. Sorgsam werden wir in das Thema und seine eigene Begrifflichkeit eingeführt, jede Frage, die uns kommen könnte, wird beantwortet, jeder Einwand entlarvt. Eckhart zeigt uns, dass wir von Toren umgeben sind, die alle ins Erwachen führen - das Jetzt ist eins davon, doch auch unsere Beziehungen können zu Toren werden, unsere Konflikte, unser Leid. Das Leben beschert uns ständig neue Gelegenheiten und Eckhart macht uns wach dafür, aufmerksam. Er gibt uns unsere Macht zurück, unser Leben, unser Jetzt zu nützen. Denn: wenn nicht jetzt, wann dann?

Coleman points to the Bible, to the ultimate example found in Jesus Christ, answering the question: What was Christ's strategy for evangelism?

Life and Practice in the Early Church brings together a range of primary texts from the church's first five centuries to demonstrate how early Christians practiced their faith. Rather than focusing on theology, these original documents shed light on how early believers "did church," addressing such practical questions as, how did the church administer baptism? How were sermons delivered? How did the early church carry out its missions endeavors? Early Christian writings reveal a great deal about the tradition, as well as the wider culture in which it developed. Far from being monolithic, the documents which present the voices of the early church fathers in their own words demonstrate variation and diversity regarding how faith was worked out during the patristic period. The texts illuminate who was eligible for baptism, what was expected of worshippers, how the Eucharist was celebrated, and how church offices and their functions were organized. Contextual introductions explain practices and their development for those with little prior knowledge of Christian history or tradition. The pieces included here, all in accessible English translation, represent such sources as Justin Martyr, Tertullian, the Cappadocians, Cyril of Jerusalem, John Chrysostom, and Augustine.

Sind Sie zufrieden mit Ihrem Leben, so wie es ist? Oder sagen Sie: Soll’s das wirklich schon gewesen sein? Wenn Sie sich insgeheim denken, dass irgendwo Größeres auf Sie wartet, Ihnen aber noch der letzte Anstoß fehlt, um endlich die verdammte Komfortzone zu verlassen, dann sind Sie hier genau richtig. Denn Jen Sincero wird Sie packen und von der Couch ziehen, damit Sie endlich das Leben leben, auf das Sie selbst neidisch wären. Aber Vorsicht: Nach diesem Buch ist das Leben definitiv anders! Jen Sinceros eigenes Leben war lange Zeit alles andere als berauschend: Sie hangelte sich von einem schlechten Job zum nächsten, hatte nie genug Geld und fuhr ein Auto, das fast auseinanderfiel. Bis sie entschied, dass sie etwas ändern muss. Sie las gefühlt jedes Selbsthilfebuch auf dieser Welt und ging zu Seminaren, bei denen man Leute umarmen oder seine Wut an einem Kissen auslassen musste. Und – es half. Jen Sincero schrieb ihr erstes Buch und schließlich noch ein zweites, das zu einem Bestseller wurde. Sie arbeitete als Coach, gab Seminare, reiste um die Welt und sprach vor großem Publikum. Sie erreichte genau das, wovon sie immer geträumt hatte. Jetzt gibt Jen Sincero ihre Erkenntnisse und ihr Wissen weiter und zeigt, wie man die Fähigkeiten, die in einem schlummern, endlich zum Blühen bringt. Es geht darum, sich glasklar darüber zu werden, was einen glücklich macht und wobei man sich am lebendigsten fühlt, und es dann mutig umzusetzen, statt sich einzureden, man könnte es nicht schaffen. Mit viel Humor und Schlagfertigkeit gibt sie praktische Ratschläge und zeigt Übungen, die dabei helfen die Selbstsabotage zu beenden und das zu erreichen, wovon man träumt.
