»Gott ist ›Licht‹, ›bevor‹ er ›Wärme‹ ist, wenn man so sagen darf; die Gnosis ›hat Vorrang‹ vor der Liebe, oder besser, diese ›folgt‹ jener, denn die Gnosis umfasst die Liebe auf ihre Weise, wohingegen die Liebe nichts anderes ist als die aus der Gnosis ›hervorgegangene‹ Seligkeit. Man kann das Falsche lieben, ohne dass die Liebe aufhörte, das zu sein, was sie ist; man kann jedoch nicht in gleicher Weise das Falsche ›erkennen‹, das heißt, die Erkenntnis kann sich nicht über ihren Gegenstand täuschen, ohne aufzuhören, das zu sein, was sie ist; der Irrtum schließt immer einen Mangel an Erkenntnis ein, wohingegen die Sünde keinen Mangel an Willen mit einschließt.« Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998) wird in weiten Teilen der Welt als einer der bedeutendsten religionsphilosophischen Schriftsteller des 20. Jahrhunderts angesehen. Er gilt als führender Vertreter jener Denkrichtung, die Sophia perennis (»immerwährende Weisheit«) genannt wird, und welche die zeitlosen und überall gültigen Grundsätze enthält, die den verschiedenen Lehren, den Sinnbildern, der heiligen Kunst und den geistigen Übungen der Weltreligionen zugrunde liegen. »Gnosis« ist für Schuon tiefe, den Menschen verwandelnde Erkenntnis und darf nicht mit den zur Zeit des frühen Christentums aufkommenden Irrlehren verwechselt werden, die heute oft unter dem Begriff »Gnostizismus« zusammengefasst werden. Der erste Teil des Buches behandelt Fragen, die mit der Unterschiedlichkeit der religiösen Überlieferungen zusammenhängen; der zweite metaphysische und anthropologische Themen, darunter den aufschlussreichen Aufsatz »Gott überall sehen«; der dritte widmet mich sich aus Sicht der Gnosis in drei Kapitel dem Christentum. Das Buch wendet sich an Menschen, die auf der Suche nach einem geistig fundierten Verständnis der Welt und ihres eigenen Lebens sind, einem Verständnis, das über die Antworten hinausgeht, welche die modernen Wissenschaften geben können. Es vermag zu befreienden Einsichten und tiefer Gewissheit zu führen.

If youe(tm)re like thousands of Canadian children who grew up in the 1960s and e(tm)70s, you need look no further than Mark Howee(tm)s funny, intimate account of being a Howe. As a boy, Mark playedball hockey with the kids of other Detroit Red Wings on the stairs of the Olympia, and his mom, Colleen, created a place where the neighbourhood children could play hockey in the winter, even to the detriment of her own windows. When Mark was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2011, he honoured his father by proudly wearing Gordiee(tm)s retired #9 Red Wings jersey at the ceremony. This book features many touching, even harrowing storiese"Gordie caring for his ailing wife as she was debilitated by Picke(tm)s disease, and a freak accident that almost killed Mark on the ice. Featuring many never-before-published photographs of the Howes, this is a book about hockeye(tm)s royal family told through the career of its Hall of Fame son.

Electrical Christianity

Electrical Christianity is a revolutionary guide to Jesus' teachings and spiritual en-Light-enment. It provides clear-cut, in-depth instructions on how to directly "plug into" the Divine Being, the Holy One, and literally "pull down" His Power. Grace is not an abstract principle; it is the palpable experience of God's Spirit-power--and anyone who religiously (or devotedly and intensely) practices the discipline of true Holy Communion presented in this book can experience the descent of Divine Power, the Holy Spirit. The true Eucharist, the practice of Holy Communion (which in its "awakened" form implies reception of the Holy Spirit), is the very heart of real Christianity, and the foremost method for attaining salvation (spiritual en-Light-enment). Electrical Christianity not only details the radical (or gone-to-the-root) practice of Holy Communion, but also analogizes it to an electrical circuit. The Eucharist is simply Ohm's Law applied to spirituality, and once you grasp the Eucharist-Ohm's Law connection, which is explicated in this book, you'll become like Jesus: a spiritual revolutionary. In addition to explicating the Eucharist-Ohm's Law connection, the book also sheds penetrating light on psychology, politics, and sociology. It presents a vision of integral psychology that differs markedly from Ken Wilber's, considers Jesus' politics in a modern context, and examines the history and future of Christianity in the New (or Aquarian) Age.

A prolific writer and author of over 24 books, Rene Guenon was the founder of the Perennialist/Traditionalist school of comparative religious thought. Known for his discourses on the intellectual and spiritual bankruptcy of the modern world, symbolism, tradition, and the inner or spiritual dimension of religion, this book is a compilation of his most important writings. A key component of his thought was the assertion that universal truths manifest themselves in various forms in the world's religions and his writings on Hinduism, Taoism, and Sufism are particularly illuminating in this regard.
