CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD BOOK 1Conversations With God: An Uncommon Dialogue, Book 1
- Neale Donald Walsch - Suppose you could ask God the most puzzling questions about existence - questions about love and faith, life and death, good and evil. Suppose God provided clear, understandable answers. It happened to Neale Donald Walsch. It can happen to you. You are about to have a conversation... I have heard the crying of your heart. I have seen the searching of your soul. I know how deeply you have desired the Truth. In pain have you called out for it, and in joy. Unendingly have you beseeched Me. Show Myself. Explain Myself. Reveal Myself. I am doing so here, in terms so plain, you cannot misunderstand. In language so simple, you cannot be confused. In vocabulary so common, you cannot get lost in the verbiage. So go ahead now. Ask Me anything. Anything. I will contrive to bring you the answer. The whole universe will I use to do this. So be on the lookout; this book is far from My only tool. You may ask a question, then put this book down. But watch. Listen. The words to the next song you hear. The information in the next article you read. The story line of the next movie you watch. The chance utterance of the next person you meet. Or the whisper of the next river, the next ocean, the next breeze that caresses your ear - all these devices are Mine; all these avenues are open to Me. I will speak to you if you will listen. I will come to you if you will invite Me. I will show you then that I have always been there. All ways.

- Neale Donald Walsch -The dialogue continues in this anxiously awaited follow-up to the best-selling Conversations with God, Book 1. Conversations with God, Book 2 resumes the dialogue where Book 1 left off, moving from personal issues to more global and political concerns. Included are questions about the nature of time and space, human sexuality, as well as geophysical and geopolitical considerations of worldwide implication. The dialogue in Book 2 is in Neale Donald Walsch's own words, ". . .captivating, disturbing and challenging. . . .In this book, God suggests nothing less than a social, sexual, political, and economic revolution that would help create the paradise on earth we all seek." Just as fascinating and compelling as Book 1, Conversations with God, Book 2 will take you to new and more expansive understandings, to greater and more universal truths--until, of course, The Dialogue Expands. . . .

- Neale Donald Walsch
- On Easter in 1992, when Neale Donald Walsch  was in the depths of a deep depression, he appealed to God for help. To his surprise, God answered back. In CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD: BOOK 1, Walsch recorded their inspiring communication on personal matters like relationships and work. BOOK 2 expanded its focus to global concerns including governments, social issues, and world peace. Now, in CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD: BOOK 3, Walsch shares his dialogue with God on "the largest questions facing man," matters of universal concern: life and death, the nature of other realms and dimensions, and our place in the giant web of space and time.

Everyday Grace EVERYDAY GRACE - Marianne Williams - What do your spiritual convictions have to do with traffic jams, job anxiety, reading the new spaper, or arguing with your spouse? Everything, according to Marianne Williamson. It is the way we live in our everyday world that determines the shape of who we are. So Buddhist or Muslim, Christian or Jew, it is the moments when our daughter doesn't make the basketball team, or our best friend lands our dream job, or our business instinct tells us to bury the guy across the boardroom table, that test and build our living faith. In these pages, Williamson teaches us to ride the currents of our everyday ups-and-downs; and she shows us how to find, in each of those moments, an opening to the soul.

For each of our souls is a storehouse of spiritual riches and mystical powers. Everyday Grace helps us mine our inner resources as we lay the foundation for a more graceful life: a life in which we stop blaming and judging; a life in which how we get there is as important as where we're going; a life in which we take time to savor sacred silence; a life in which miracles happen. Marianne Williamson walks us through a day in this life, helping us foster spirit in everything from grief, guilt, and jealousy, to boredom, anxiety, hopelessness, and happiness. And in five vivid, inspirational, and timely meditations, she writes with passion on imbuing our rituals, holidays, relationships, community, and Sabbaths with peace and purpose. Reclaiming those times and places we expect to be happy and holy; times and places we are often most disappointed not to see God in ourselves or in those we love most. ISBN 1573222305

inspirationwaynedyer.gif (4673 bytes)INSPIRATION: Your Ultimate Calling - Wayne W. Dyer - Dr. Wayne Dyer wants us to listen up. There’s a voice in the universe calling each of us to remember our purpose—our reason for being here now, in this world of impermanence. The voice whispers, shouts, and sings to us that this experience of being in form, in space and time, knowing life and death, has meaning. The voice is that of inspiration, which is within each and every one of us. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explains how we’ve chosen to enter this world of particles and form. From our place of origin, in ways that we don’t readily comprehend now, we knew what we were coming here to accomplish, and we participated in setting this life process in motion. So why not think this same way? Why put the responsibility or blame on any one or any thing that’s not a part of us? On Earth we have the capacity of volition—we can choose—so let’s assume that we had the same capacity when we resided in the spiritual realm. We chose our physical body, and we chose the parents we needed for the trip. It doesn’t seem too great a stretch to move into the idea that we chose this life in concert with our Source. Each chapter in this book is filled with specifics for living an inspired life. From a very personal viewpoint, Wayne Dyer offers a blueprint through the world of spirit to inspiration, your ultimate calling. ISBN 1401907210 (Hay House)hc

When he was a boy, Krishnamurti, writing as Alcyone, set down the simple precepts for right living published as At the Feet of the Master. This lucid guide to the spiritual life has inspired millions around the world. Mabel Collins, a ninteenth-century British writer, collected forty-two aphorisms for right living which are as current for today's seekers as they were when they were first published as Light on the Path. Helena P. Blavatsky, founder of The Theosophical Society, set down her own guide to the spiritual life in the mystical and poetic masterpiece The Voice of the Silence.

Collected for the first time in a single volume, these three contemporary spiritual classics can set anyone on the path to spiritual wisdom.

Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) is one of the most honored spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. His books include Freedom from the Unknown, Think on These Things, and Commentaries on Living.

That's what Jim Benson thinks. Mary's Field is the tale of a man who refuses to accept what his life has brought him, and who takes his indignation to the man himself.

Thich Nhat Hanh
"Our biggest fear," Thich Nhat Hanh writes, "is that we will become nothing when we die. If we think that we cease to exist when we die, we have not looked very deeply at ourselves." Exploring that deepest fear and the very nature of existence, the author of Living Buddha, Living Christ teaches readers how our fear of annihilation can actually help us learn how to conquer fear. Sound crazy? "Freedom from notions," the author gently reminds us, "is the purpose of our practice."

From the Publisher
"There is a story about a Zen master whose monastery was overrun by marauding soldiers. When the Zen master did not appear frightened, the soldiers' captain said, "Don't you know who I am? I could run my sword through you and not think twice about it." The Zen master replied, "Don't you know who I am? You could run your sword through me and I wouldn't think twice about it."" The Zen master's reaction might seem foreign to those of us who are taught to value life. Life is valuable and truly precious, but do we truly value life, or do we simply cling to it out of a desperate fear of the unknown, a fear that when we die we face total annihilation?  ISBN 1573222216

The Poisonwood BibleTHE POISONWOOD BIBLE - Barbara Kingsolver

THE POISONWOOD BIBLE is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it -- from garden seeds to Scripture -- is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa. The novel is set against one of the most dramatic political chronicles of the 20th century: the Congo's fight for independence from Belgium, the murder of its first elected prime minister, the CIA coup to install his replacement, and the insidious progress of a world economic order that robs the fledgling African nation of its autonomy.
