Seven Paths to God: The Ways of the Mystic

by Joan Borysenko, PhD

A former cell biologist and a licensed clinical psychologist Borysemko affirms that one doesn't have to climb a mountain to have a mystical moment--they can be found in the mundane and ordinary moments of daily life. What is the nature of God--Mother, Father, Great Spirit, the Tao, the One Who Is Many--and how do we live in harmony with the Divine Plan by using our unique gifts and talents? Why are we here? and what is the measure of a life well lived? What is happiness, and what legacy will we leave behind?

A New Earth

A New Earth

by Echart Tolle

The highly anticipated follow-up to The Power of Now. Tolle presents an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one. In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are − which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are − and learn to live and breathe freely.
