An elegant rendering of the great mystic's thoughts on the mysteries of the authentic life This is a little book about soul freedom. It is a book about discovering the secret to all the things we most desire: contentment, meaning, peace of mind, and true freedom. This skillfully edited translation of selections from the writings of Meister Eckhart provides a roadmap to the spiritual life for contemporary seekers. Eckhart takes us on a journey of discovery; a journey in which we learn to let go, relinquish our need to know everything, and lose those things that we think are important for a life of worth. And in the end he shows us that the true secret is this: to find yourself, you must lose yourself. Here is timeless wisdom from a medieval mystic who has influenced a wide range of spiritual teachers and mystics both inside and outside the Christian tradition. Erich Fromm, Arthur Schopenhauer, Dag Hammarskjöld, Eckhart Tolle, Richard Rohr, D. T. Suzuki, Rudolf Steiner, and Matthew Fox have all credited Eckhart as being an important influence on their thought. In addition, his work has influenced the development of 20th-century American Buddhism and the Theosophical tradition. Divided into five sections—Seeking the Light, Facing Darkness, Risking Love, Knowing Nothing, and Embracing Everything—the book leads readers on the path to an authentic spiritual life.

This book explores the prophetic characteristics of literature, particularly poetry, that seek to reimagine the world in which it is written. Using theological and philosophical insights it charts the relentless impulse of literature to propose alternative visions, practicable or utopian, and point toward possibilities of renewal and change. Drawing from each of the three main Abrahamic religions, as well as Greek and Latin classics, an international group of scholars utilise a diverse range of analytical and interpretive methods to draw out the prophetic voice in poetry. Looking at the writings of figures like T. S. Elliot, Blake, Wittgenstein and Isaiah, the theme of the prophetic is shown to be of timely importance given the current state of geo-political challenges and uncertainties and offers a much-needed critical discussion of these broad cultural questions. This collection of essays offers readers an insight into the constructive power of literature. As such, it will be of great interest to scholars working in Religion and the Arts, Religious Studies, Theology and Aesthetics.

Though he lived in the thirteenth century, Meister Eckhart’s deeply ecumenical teachings were in many ways modern. He taught about what we call ecology, championed artistic creativity, and advocated for social, economic, and gender justice. All these elements have inspired spiritual maverick Matthew Fox and influenced his Creation Spirituality. Here, Fox creates metaphorical meetings between Eckhart and Teilhard de Chardin, Thich Nhat Hanh, Carl Jung, Black Elk, Rumi, Adrienne Rich, and other radical thinkers. The result is profoundly insightful, substantive, and inspiring.

Meister Eckhart, thirteenth century Dominican theologian and the greatest of German mystics, speaks to us with a new voice in this faithful and authoritative translation by M.O'C. Walshe. Eckhart was regarded as the most learned scholar of his time, people flocked to hear him preach and his influence on contemporary theology was considerable. However, his declaration as a heretic has meant that his spiritual message has been lost to us for centuries. Today, his teachings are being rediscovered by a new generation of spiritual seekers following his 'wayless way' which bridges East and West.

The contributions in this volume investigate models of connecting theory and leisure in the history of ideas with regard to the question of an anthropological foundation of theory.
Author: Tobias Keiling
English summary: The link between leisure and contemplative activity, as paradigmatically developed in Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, has a pre- and long post-history reaching into present day philosophy and theology. Aristotle's melding of leisure with theory is explained anthropologically because human nature's capabilities are perfectly realised in a contemplative form of life. The contributions in this volume investigate models of connecting theory and leisure in the history of ideas with regard to the question of an anthropological foundation of theory. German description: Die Engfuhrung von Musse und theoretischem Tun, die Aristoteles paradigmatisch in der Nikomachischen Ethik entwickelt, hat eine Vor- und eine lange Nachgeschichte bis in die gegenwartige Philosophie und Theologie hinein. Begrundet wird die Engfuhrung von Musse und Theorie bei Aristoteles anthropologisch, weil sich in einer kontemplativen Lebensform die Moglichkeiten der menschlichen Natur auf vollendete Weise verwirklichen. Die Beitrage in diesem Band untersuchen ideengeschichtliche Modelle einer Verbindung von Theorie und Musse daraufhin, wie diese sich zur Frage einer anthropologischen Fundierung der Theorie verhalten. Sie fragen nach der Anthropologie der Theorie.

Ayahuasca Glimpse is a sui generis book , focusing in the practical preparation of sacramental use of etheogenic substances, it does encourage us to take a good and hard look at the roots of shamanic rituals and the notion that they were based on fertility cults, and shamanic practices such as Ambrosia and Soma rituals, it is a source of spiritual communion with the universal consciousness, of God. Goithyja is Another great explorer and pathfinder in human consciousness Such mind altering substances formed an integral part of the religious rites of ancient peoples. He approaches such matter in a popular type of writing, that the otherworldly and the ordinary, participation and observation; the result is a easy to ready book out there, enforcing a practical approach to such field of knowledge, I do suspect that ethnobotanists and anthropologists familiar with the Amazon will find relatively few surprises, on this book, But the ant hills of detail are not the point. Ayahuasca Glimpse is designed to inform a wider audience of how to safely communicate with entheogens, Goithyja with his background in meditation and mysticism or other more internalized psychedelics, has the Holy Vedas as spiritual guidance to follow, making easy for Psychonauts to experience with entheogens. Ayahuasca glimpse can be pretty handy to novices and neophytes, to safely approach such realm, pointing also the best entheogenic substances to use, and the best countries to partake with them.
