Book Description :

Throughout our lives, most of us have been conditioned to view the essence of our human being and the greater realm of creation itself as somehow mysterious and unknowable. In many ways, it seems as if we have relegated our lives to dense matter as the central focus of our identity. Exploring the possible inner or metaphysical realities can provide an orientation and detail necessary for greater understanding of ourselves and the dimensional spheres of life that connect us. My lifes work has included studying the underlying structures that support all physical manifestation as well as the beings that live within and work to sustain them. I believe that all inner and outer life forms and entities are dimensionally connected. We are continuously interacting with them unconsciously through various levels of our being, the collective consciousness of humanity, our planet, and the celestial bodies in the universe. My experience has been that the lack of awareness of our own greater being is what hinders our ability to comprehend the universe multidimensionally. In my view, before entering our present dense physical forms as humans, we have progressed through many developmental cycles, as did our Earth, solar system, and universe. This book documents what I have learned about the universal creative process and dimensional human evolution from our source beginnings to the present. I have tried to integrate the various accounts of the scientific, mythological, religious, and metaphysical versions of cosmology, cosmogenesis, and cosmogony. Exploring the inner realms of possible connections between humanity, Earth, and the cosmos has been a complex undertaking and journey into uncharted territory. My research, life experiences, and clairvoyant perspectives regarding the dimensionality of all life are the basis for the writing of this book.

Book Description :

Suddenly, last September 11th, many of our comfortable assumptions about our world, our faith, and ourselves came crashing down with the twin towers of the World Trade Center. In the wake of that disaster, we are all re-examining values we once took for granted. 'In the Aftermath' is a collection of reflections from well-known writers and church leaders exploring the political, economic, social, and religious implications of our responses to the events -- to see what these can, and are teaching us about our world, our faith, and ourselves. Among the contributors are William Willimon, professor of Christian ministry at Duke University; Derek Evans, former deputy secretary general of Amnesty International; the Rt. Reverend Bill Phipps, former moderator of the United Church of Canada; Nancy Reeves, Ph.D., clinical psychologist; and Walter Wink, professor of biblical interpretation at Auburn Theological Seminary in New York City.

Book Description :

Does any one religion have all the answers? Or must we find the answers to life’s questions within ourselves? What would the Buddha think of Jesus’ message of unconditional love? Would the Buddha and Jesus have any common ground? In Jesus Meets the Buddha, author James Kim attempts to answer these questions and many more by exploring the histories and beliefs of two of the world’s major religions: Christianity and Buddhism. Driven by his own desire to answer questions such as “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?” Kim builds on the discourses of the world’s greatest thinkers to examine religions and philosophies, including Judaism, Hinduism, Confucianism, and even Voodoo. His conclusion is that every religion in existence today is a precious gem of human history and an irreplaceable facet of the giant mosaic that makes up our world. He argues that by combining Jesus’ teaching with the long-held ethical and religious traditions of the East, we can build a meaningful unity for humankind. Provocative and well-researched, Jesus Meets the Buddha is a must-read book for anyone interested in the world’s religions or who is looking for their own answers about their place in the universe.
