In this book, Mark Prophet, a modern-day adept, explains how color, sound, and geometry can be used to create thoughtforms that have a reality far greater than mere imagination. This science can be used to precipitate physical objects. But of far greater worth is the potential for creation in the realms of Spirit. Mark explains that he is not permitted to reveal all the secrets of creation, but the keys are there for those who would pursue the teaching all the way to its Source. Among Mark and Elizabeth's best-selling titles are The Human Aura, The Science of the Spoken Word, Your Seven Energy Centers, The Lost Years of Jesus, The Art of Practical Spirituality, and her successful Pocket Guides to Practical Spirituality series.

The primal role of art in awakening and liberating the soul of humanity • Presents a seven-stage journey of transformation moving from the darkened soul to the light of spiritual illumination • Provides a meditation practice to experience the spiritual energy embedded within art • Includes artists Alex Grey, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Walter Gaudnek, and others Art and Spiritual Transformation presents a seven-stage journey from the darkened soul to the light of spiritual illumination that is possible through the world of art. Finley Eversole introduces a meditation practice that moves beyond the visual content of an art form in order to connect with its embedded spiritual energy, allowing the viewer to tap in to the deeper consciousness inherent in the artwork and awaken dormant powers in the depths of the viewer’s soul. Examining modern and postmodern artwork from 1945 onward, Eversole reveals the influences of ancient Egypt, India, China, and alchemy on this art. He draws extensively on philosophy, myth and symbolism, literature, and metaphysics to explain the seven stages of spiritual death and rebirth of the soul possible through art: the experience of self-loss, the journey into the underworld, the experience of the dark night of the soul, the conflict with and triumph over evil, the awakening of new life in the depths of being, and the return and reintegration of consciousness on a higher plane of being, resulting finally in ecstasy, transfiguration, illumination, and liberation. To illustrate these stages, Eversole includes works by abstract expressionists Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Mark Rothko and modern visionary artists Alex Grey and Ernst Fuchs, among others, to reveal the powerful and liberating forces art contributes to the transformation and evolution of human consciousness.

Do horses make choices? How do they seem to know what people are thinking and feeling? Are horses spiritual beings with a destiny all their own? If so, how is this destiny connected with humanity's future? How does the equine mind compare with the human mind? What do horses have to teach people? And why are women so attracted to horses? These are some of the questions writer and equine therapist Linda Kohanov explores in her extraordinary book The Tao of Equus. In it she intertwines the story of the spiritual awakening she experienced with her black mare Rasa with compelling neurological research, cultural history, mythology, and first-hand anecdotes from years of teaching and facilitating equine therapy. She delves into the mental and spiritual processes behind the magical connections people, and women in particular, often experience with horses. She skillfully describes the subtle behavioral nuances horses express and perceive — what she calls the "wisdom of the prey" — as well as a feminine wisdom found in her powerful interactions with horses, bringing to the page subtleties that women riders have intuited for centuries. Blending her extraordinary experience — what some would consider paranormal — with a wide-ranging survey of the phenomena of horse-human communication, Kohanov delivers a ground-breaking work sure to interest both longtime riders and readers interested in the leading edge of animal perception and animal-human communication.

In this article the author articulates the effects of the paradigm shift of Man and Woman Balance on the fields of philosophy, religion, psychology, economics and politics, sexuality, marriage and family, education, art, and health and ecology. Author Bio: Christopher Alan Anderson (1950 - ) received the basis of his education from the University of Science and Philosophy, Swannanoa, Waynesboro, Virginia. He resides in the transcendental/romantic tradition, that vein of spiritual creativity of the philosopher and poet. His quest has been to define and express an eternal romantic reality from which a man and a woman could together stand in their difference and create a living universe of procreative love. Mr. Anderson began these writings in 1971. The first writings were published in 1985. On a personal note, when Mr. Anderson was asked to describe the writings and what he felt their message was he responded, "Spiritual procreation. Mankind has yet to distinguish the two sexes on the spiritual level. In this failure lies the root of our problems and why we cannot yet touch the eternal together. The message of man and woman balance brings each of us together in love with our eternal other half right now." Keywords: Man and Woman Balance, Relationships, Procreation, Spirituality, Love, Metaphysics, Eternal, Creation, Sexuality, & Soul.

Too often, it seems that science and spirituality are irreconcilable but Paul Bailey shows that hard fact and direct spiritual experience can come together harmoniously, and only when they do will the true nature of the universe be revealed to us. What he has to say will inspire mind-shifts and alter our perception of the universe. Bailey's revolutionary approach emerged from a whimsically phrased, but ultimately serious question that scientists tried to answer: If an elephant were sucked into a black hole, where would its matter go? Astonishingly, they realized that the elephant's fate altered depending on each person's particular viewing position. And that's what Bailey allows us to do: see reality and our lives from a different perspective. By linking the apparently unrelated fields of quantum physics, holistic health, cosmology, theology, neuroscience, evolutionary theory, and consciousness studies, Bailey proves that each is a facet of a greater, unified reality, and that science and spirituality are two sides of the same coin. With this knowledge, we will finally understand our place in the universe and gain new insights into some of the most challenging questions facing the world today.

Our Spiritual Destiny: Manifesting New Bodies discusses the ways that evolutionary forces are continuing to unfold through all gradations of life. It explains the purpose of human life as the expansion of Consciousness in matter through ongoing body development. We have the choice to fulfill this purpose consciously at an accelerated pace by changing and raising the matter of our bodies to a level of our divine essence. Utilizing the capacities of our Higher Selves within an initiatory framework of growth and transmutation, we can actively participate in our body development, thereby helping to expedite the manifestation of new bodies. The following are passages from various chapters in the book: From Alignment Clarification: Many of the ancient wisdom traditions, sacred religious texts and modern-day writers have all alluded to some form of physical transcendence, life extension or the raising and refinement of the physical body. From the past, each culture, religion or entity has its own interpretation and language of what the stories mean or symbolize and how they apply to the present day. I believe that many of these references relate to physical ascension, physical body perfection or physical immortality. All include the same premise that our bodies are of a nature and essence which enable their transformation. From Our Journey into Matter: I have come to see all of creation as a work in progress, gradually working its way towards fulfillment. Through evolutionary forces, matter is continually being prepared to express ever-higher aspects of Consciousness in our physical life. It may not always seem like it, but I also believe we are important agents of change for the expansion of consciousness in the world. Our immortal human spirit repeatedly reincarnates within humanity with increasing experience to help unfold and expand a higher plan for matter. However, our main problem with this task is that by taking physical form in matter bodies we cannot remember our divine origins in the inner, unseen realms. From Remembering: Some religious scholars suggest that the essence of all sacred material is somehow buried deep within our being. If this is true, then helping us remember must be the intent and purpose of all divinely inspired sacred books, spiritual literature and cultural myths in the world. Somewhere in our Being or Higher Self, we already know the purpose of physical life in matter. As evolution progresses and our consciousness expands through time, we are incrementally working towards remembering this purpose. From Spiritual Orientation and Alignment: For most of us, the physical demands of our daily lives capture our conscious attention and vital energies. This happens gradually within our ritualized patterns and daily activities. Through this physical focus and orientation, the crystallizing force in matter constructs barriers within our consciousness and bodies that maintain and reinforce this alignment. Because of its compelling and coalescing nature, our life energies are drained through attachment to the form and routine of our lives. As a result, we usually feel and believe we have little left over to devote to our spiritual development. From Health and New Body Alignment: Most people have grown up with a body-centered identity. Everything about living in the world seems to condition us to identify with this orientation. The realities of physical life throughout history have encouraged us to strengthen, build up or perfect our natural body in one way or another. This alignment has ensured the survival of our species. Even today in our modern world, we continue to value the attributes of physical strength, fitness, and vitality as the ultimate experience of a good life. From the standpoint of our present bodies and our collective beliefs about them, this orientation is helpful and necessary. However

Islamic architecture has enriched design with a wide variety of structural shapes, including among others, unique arches, a wide variety of vaults and domes which allow for new forms to be developed. The influence that these structural forms have in non-Islamic countries was one of the themes of the 3rd International Conference on Islamic Heritage Architecture and Art, at which the included papers were presented. There is much to learn from past experiences to arrive at solutions which are environmentally sound and sustainable in the long term. As conventional energy resources become scarce, the Islamic design heritage can offer invaluable lessons on how to deal in an efficient manner with cases of hard and extreme environments. Traditional architecture and urban environments in most Islamic countries are now being eroded by overemphasis on a global type of architecture and city planning. As a consequence, many regions are losing their identity. It will become increasingly important for new developments to take light of what the classical Islamic urban designs and architectures have to offer modern society. An equally important aspect covered is the analysis of the materials employed and the types of structural elements, particularly those unique to Islamic architecture. Preserving this heritage requires the development of appropriate conservation techniques in response to the different materials used and the ways structural forms work, including under extreme conditions, such as earthquakes. These papers deal with the design of many types of buildings in Islamic countries, including not only the better known public buildings like mosques, mausolea, citadels and forts, but also houses and gardens, engineering works such as bridges and dams, irrigation systems and many others which have also had a profound impact on society.
