The book discusses the art of living in the moment and living in the breath. It has five parts. Part one discusses the hierarchy of mindfulness, factors of mindfulness, micro-mindfulness, frameworks of mindfulness, goal setting and planning with mindfulness, and many other aspects of mindfulness. Part two, three and four discusses different practices of mindfulness meditation. Written in clear and concise language, and beautifully illustrated, the book is enjoyable to read and easy to practice. In this book Dr. Ray explores mindfulness as an art of living in the moment and living in the breath. He explores mindfulness as the source of inspiration and inner peace. Ray explains how to apply mindfulness to everything we encounter so we can transcend unconscious habits that have imprisoned us for so long. He shows the ways to transform our fear, expectation, anger, regret, cravings, frustration, and fatigue into positive energy of love and compassion.
Every moment life unfolds its wings slowly. Mindfulness is beautification of the
moment. Beautification happens through attention, awareness, love and
compassion. Every moment is fresh and every moment is new – focus on the
beauty of the ...

"Jerrold Levinson's new book, Music in the Moment, makes a major contribution to the now flourishing field of philosophy of music. He has a daring thesis about music listening that is going to shake up the experts, and pose for them, and for us all, some very hard questions. To reuse, yet again, the old cliché, no one interested in the field, can afford not to read Levinson's book."—Peter Kivy, author of Authenticities"Jerrold Levinson is one of the world's outstanding philosophers of music. His new book, Music in the Moment, is bold, meticulous, cogent and immensely illuminating of the experience of listening to music."—Malcolm Budd, University of LondonWhat is required for a listener to understand a piece of music? Does aural understanding depend upon reflective awareness of musical architecture or large-scale musical structure? Jerrold Levinson thinks not. In contrast to what is commonly assumed, Levinson argues that basic understanding of music only requires properly grounded, present-focused attention, and that virtually everything in the comprehension of extended pieces of music that suggests explicit architectonic awareness can be explained without positing a conscious grasp of relationships across broad spans.
It is even a condition of hearing melody that the tone present at the moment
should fill consciousness entirely , that nothing should be remembered . . . any
turning back of consciousness for the purpose of making past tones present ...

As we grow older, it seems to me that we become less interested in impressing people and more focused on being remembered by those who know us. Certainly, we want to have done enough good things to have those merits define us rather than our demerits. I think we clearly hope that loved ones and friends will know enough about us that they will understand why we lived life as we did. We do not think they will very often agree with us, but we strive to have them see why we took the paths we walked in our life. This modest offering is an attempt to bring a modicum of understanding of the motivations in my life to the minds of our children Alicia and Colin and to my enduring wife Sue. I know they all have wondered about me from time to time. I pray they always knew I wanted only to do good and have them sense the depth of my love for them. And, in these writings there is also a hope that friends and acquaintances will find some laughter and maybe even a tiny bit of wisdom to help them in their journey through life. I was blessed to be born to Shelby Ancel Haley and to Hettie Curry Haley on February 16th, 1945 in St. Joseph, Missouri. No child had more love and protection than I did from these excellent parents. My mothers love was total and was matched by that of my father. As I grew up I began to realize that my father had instilled a significant amount of wisdom in me, because he was truly a wise man. Each time I found myself in distress in life, I was able to remember a lesson or a saying from my dad that I could tie my lifeline to. Mom and Dad created a truly strong foundation for me to build my life upon. Perhaps this little book will help someone I know and love understand me better and remember me more often. It contains poems of faith, sayings some sermons I once delivered and a few devotionals and essays I put on the page over many years. I do want you to enjoy the reading and hope you will laugh more often with me than at me. If I make it to Heaven, I will be regularly walking those sunny streets. I would wish to encounter each and every one of you there and would delight in sharing laughter and love with you in long conversations. After all, we wont be pressed for time there, will we? God Bless!
In this context, the prize is what God is presenting to us in this very moment. I
think this is what The Heavenly Father wants us to see in the Scripture cited
above. As Christians, if we bring “all of ourselves” to what God is presenting to us

Contemporary music. "As I follow the threads from the past/future into the present moment I breathe my time" -- Pauline Oliveros. "The Roots of the Moment" presents the collected writings over the past decade from one of our greatest contemporary musician-composers. Essays, poems, scores, dreams, and HorSpiele (German for, literally, "ear-plays") are presented as simultaneously unfolding texts (graphic design by Blair Seagram). A pioneer of electronic and interactive electro-acoustic music, of meditative or contemplative music (renowned for her work with The Deep Listening Band), and a virtuoso accordionist and performer, Oliveros stands with John Cage, Terry Riley, Conlon Nancarrow, Morton Feldman, LaMonte Young and few others as among the most radical post-war experimentalists of American music. The compact disc enclosed includes four HorSpiele (1987-1993) commissioned for radio performance in Germany and the US.

We may search out the moment the first wave slapped on a shore or the first star
burst in the sky, but we'll never find the first moment when God was God, for there
is no moment when God was not God. He has never not been, for he is eternal.

The Moment of Racial Sight overturns the most familiar form of racial analysis in contemporary culture: the idea that race is constructed, that it operates by attaching visible marks of difference to arbitrary meanings and associations. Searching for the history of the constructed racial sign, Irene Tucker argues that if people instantly perceive racial differences despite knowing better, then the underlying function of race is to produce this immediate knowledge. Racial perception, then, is not just a mark of acculturation, but a part of how people know one another. Tucker begins her investigation in the Enlightenment, at the moment when skin first came to be used as the primary mark of racial difference. Through Kant and his writing on the relation of philosophy and medicine, she describes how racialized skin was created as a mechanism to enable us to perceive the likeness of individuals in a moment. From there, Tucker tells the story of instantaneous racial seeing across centuries—from the fictive bodies described but not seen in Wilkie Collins’s realism to the medium of common public opinion in John Stuart Mill, from the invention of the notion of a constructed racial sign in Darwin’s late work to the institutionalizing of racial sight on display in the HBO series The Wire. Rich with perceptive readings of unexpected texts, this ambitious book is an important intervention in the study of race.
Moreover, not only does Taylor's conception of intentionality imagine that
people's intentions might to some degree be formed by the events they set into
motion, but in offering a model of intentionality unconfined to any single moment
