What if there are signals all around you trying to get your attention? What if these signals are there to support your deepest dreams for who you can be and what you can create in this world? What if life itself is quite simple and we humans make it burdensome, heavy, and a struggle by our choices? And what if the way we do this is counterintuitive? What if living in a state of joy is accessible to all who seek and choose it? And what if we are prompted throughout our lives to develop the ability to recognize how to live into the highest and best we can be with joy and grace? And what if the reason we don't is counterintuitive? What is possible for each of us individually and for societies, as a whole, when we intuitively follow inner wisdom over our fears and ego identities? Just maybe we will live into our dreams, our life's work, and the highest and best of who we are here to be. The path presents itself. Do you know how to recognize the signals? Do you want to?

Ārya Asanga’s Bodhisattvabhūmi, or The Stage of a Bodhisattva, is the Mahāyāna tradition’s most comprehensive manual on the practice and training of bodhisattvas—by the author’s own account, a compilation of the full range of instructions contained in the entire collection of Mahāyāna sutras. A classic work of the Yogācāra school, it has been cherished in Tibet by all the historical Buddhist lineages as a primary source of instruction on bodhisattva ethics, vows, and practices, as well as for its summary of the ultimate goal of the bodhisattva path—supreme enlightenment. Despite the text’s seminal importance in the Tibetan traditions, it has remained unavailable in English except in fragments. Engle’s translation, made from the Sanskrit original with reference to the Tibetan translation and commentaries, will enable English readers to understand more fully and clearly what it means to be a bodhisattva and practitioner of the Mahāyāna tradition.

The wisdom and knowledge that Judy has learned from her experience with cancer can be our guide and coach.' - Bernie Siegel MD, Author of Love, Medicine & Miracles and The Art of Healing Dancing with Cancer focuses on the creation of a positive and proactive mindset with which to face the specific challenges and stages of cancer. It combines the author’s own experience of using what she calls Thought Work (including creative self-expression, healing energy work and meditation) with conventional cancer treatment in order to connect her intentions for healing to the everyday reality of a diagnosis of incurable bone-marrow cancer. The book offers guidance and inspiration not only to cancer sufferers as they undergo the various stages of treatment but also to those supporting them, enabling them to understand better the experience of the cancer patient as well as the possibilities of mind–body empowerment. Part I allows the reader to gain inspiration and reassurance from Judy’s personal cancer story, as well as put into practice her Thought Work suggestions, which include revelatory questionnaires and journaling, creative exercises (such as drawing healing mandalas) and guided meditations. Part II gives a more detailed description of the Thought Work tools, including instructions for setting healing intentions, for using mindful breathing and for cultivating an attitude of gratitude, as well as meditations for a range of cancer situations and step-by-step instructions for creating artworks. Throughout the book are examples of Judy’s own transformative artworks, which she offers along with the reminder that any creative self-expression can be healing – it is not the outcome but the physical process of doing that matters, enabling multi-level transformation.

Like asking the eagle to lumber or bear to fly, you will never find your own graceful state of being by looking outward for direction. Grace appears when you step inward to your unique essence and walk your own path. (108) Humans Being is a book dedicated to all who long to find their voice, pursue their passion, and live more fulfilling, creative, and healthier lives. It offers a simple framework in the form of the Universal Soul Grid for reconnecting with unique purpose and voice and for recognizing unconscious choices that block creativity, insight, and lives of ease. The exercises are designed to provide practice fields for readers to engage at their own pace and to reinforce what it means to live in grace, listen to the heart, and lead a life of clarity and courage. The path to lives of ease and grace is available to all, and yet: Not all of us have been engaging all aspects of this path. But its influence and prompting in your life become clear when you look squarely at who you are becoming, the results of your choices, and the relative ease or difficulty of your life. The simple truth in your heart-in whatever form you recognize it-serves your own unique journey. As long as you remember that point, faith and courage more easily follow. The desire to open your eyes and see where you invest your energy to hold yourself back-for whatever reason-becomes a curiosity, rather than a failure. And the possibility of greatness and living your dreams emerges much more clearly. (p. 15)

‘The Buddha was the source. Venerable Svasti and the young buffalo boys were rivers that flowed from the source. Wherever the rivers flowed, the Buddha would be there.’ In Old Path White Clouds, the world's revered master of mindfulness, Thich Nhat Hanh, retells the story of the Buddha in his own inimitably beautiful style. He draws upon Pali, Sanskrit and Chinese sources to trace the Buddha’s life slowly and gently through the course of eighty years. Seen partly through the eyes of the Buddha himself and partly through those of Svasti, the buffalo boy, Old Path White Clouds brings the Buddha closer to us as we journey with him on his path to enlightenment and nirvana.

Many people bring spiritual practices into every aspect of their lives--except the boardroom! But spiritual guidance can be used just as easily to help fill the bottom line as it does to fill our hearts and souls. In The Path to Wealth, entrepreneur May McCarthy will show you how to create a true financial partnership with the all-knowing power in the universe that she calls your Chief Spiritual Officer, or "CSO." This is not a dogmatic book; McCarthy encourages you to partner with a higher power of your own understanding, but she is insistent on one point: this power is within you and it knows what must happen for you to receive what you want. In this book you'll learn the job descriptions for both yourself and your CSO, and you'll have a daily road map to help you achieve your financial goals. As you practice these steps daily, you will experience seeming miracles that you never thought possible, all with less effort and more fun. Once you decide what you want, it's the CSO's job to create the path to get you the goods you've defined. Your job is to follow each step in this daily practice and watch as the benefits you want unfold.

The Rámáyan is one of the first and most important Hindu epic poems telling the story of the hero Rama as he is exiled from his home because of his father's second wife. He then wanders the forests for over a decade and marries his true love Sita who is eventually kidnapped and killed by a demon king. Rama goes to war with this king to avenge the loss of his wife and best friend. The importance of this poem is evident in the long list of tales that followed it after its publication and the story also shows the Eastern Indian ideals of the perfect relationships, faith and philosophy. The poem stands alone in its grandeur and is one of the longest and grandest of epic poems ever to be written.

This volume surveys the major philosophical concepts, arguments, and commitments of the Confucian classic, the Analects. In thematically organized chapters, leading scholars provide a detailed, scholarly introduction to the text and the signal ideas ascribed to its protagonist, Confucius. The volume opens with chapters that reflect the latest scholarship on the disputed origins of the text and an overview of the broad commentarial tradition it generated. These are followed by chapters that individually explore key areas of the text’s philosophical landscape, articulating both the sense of concepts such as ren, li, and xiao as well as their place in the wider space of the text. A final section addresses prominent interpretive challenges and scholarly disputes in reading the Analects, evaluating, for example, the alignment between the Analects and contemporary moral theory and the contested nature of its religious sensibility. Dao Companion to the Analects offers a comprehensive and complete survey of the text's philosophical idiom and themes, as well as its history and some of the liveliest current debates surrounding it. This book is an ideal resource for both researchers and advanced students interested in gaining greater insight into one of the earliest and most influential Confucian classics.
