Download or read book Sounding Solitude PDF or another Format written by Sr Mary Paul Cutri OCD and published by ICS Publications. This book was released on 2011-11-10 with total page 176 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Solitude is a universal experience. For some people, its connotations of loneliness and isolation are terrifying prospects. Others seek it out, sensing solitude’s potential for bringing depth and creativity to their lives. Even those who embrace it willingly, however, discover at some point that solitude, like nature, has its changing seasons. Why write a book about solitude? One answer: God. Those who are God seekers often turn to solitude to listen to God, to be present to God, to be attentive to God’s word, wisdom and Spirit. Embraced purposefully, solitude enables us to cultivate another way of seeing and being, to be more open to discovery of and exploration into those unfathomable riches we call God.
Download or read book Solitude PDF or another Format written by Philip Koch and published by Open Court. This book was released on 2015-12-15 with total page 390 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Koch's Solitude, both solitude and engagement emerge as primary modes of human experience, equally essential for human completion. This work draws upon the vast corpus of literary reflections on solitude, especially Lao Tze, Sappho, Plotinus, Augustine, Petrarch, Montaigne, Goethe, Shelley, Emerson, Thoreau, Whitman and Proust. "Koch uses the work of philosophers, historians, and writers, as well as texts such as the Bible, to show what solitude is and isn't, and what being alone can do to and for the individual. Interesting for its literary scope and its conclusions about all the good true solitude can bring us." —Booklist "Reading this book is like dipping into many minds, fierce and gentle. The author reveals his long study of great philosophers, and interprets their thoughts through the lens of his own experience with solitude. He traces our early brushes with solitude and the fear it can engender, then the craving for solitude that comes with full, adult lives." —NAPRA Review

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: THE LORD OF THE REDEMPTION: Hermetic Archtronics, the Saviours and the Tachyon Teachings in Out-of-Body Travel –And I saw work that the Lord would have me do in this venture, to bring the consciousness of humanity ever closer to the consciousness of all universal life. And I nodded in acceptance of this task to bridge that divide between them. And I contemplated the titles given to me for this rendering: ‘Hermetic Archtronics, the Saviours and the Eltachyon Teachings in Out-of-Body Travel.’ The individual definitions came to me as I contemplated upon the words. 1.) Hermetic – meaning to seal something completely and airtight, 4.) the Saviours – being the descent of the vibration of incarnate deity or masters from the above to the below, 3.) Archtronics – the unifying structural design of things and 4.) Tachyon – the particles which travel beyond the speed of light. What did it all mean? It was simple, really. Redemption itself is the sealing of a soul completely in an airtight compendium to that of the divine movement and will. And this has already been accomplished through the descent of the saviours. Their recurring teaching focuses on one thing – a curious thing, an unexpected thing – taking refuge in divine name. This is efficacious because the divine name heralds a vibration. Structurally, in the world of vibration, it is the divine name which unifies the individual personality to the great field of being. In its highest thrust, that vibration will attain to the field beyond the speed of light, beyond human capacity and the physical world, the field of calm abiding. And it is here that the death of the multiplicity has already occurred. To this world the human soul must seek to become compatible if he is to reach the highest spiritual pinnacle afforded to those in the mortal realms below. He must himself become a field. As I continued pondering these things, I looked up. And suddenly, they were there.” From ‘The Lord of the Redemption, By Marilynn Hughes
Download or read book Sound, Sin, and Conversion in Victorian England PDF or another Format written by Julia Grella O'Connell and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-04-19 with total page 172 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The plight of the fallen woman is one of the salient themes of nineteenth-century art and literature; indeed, the ubiquity of the trope galvanized the Victorian conscience and acted as a spur to social reform. In some notable examples, Julia Grella O’Connell argues, the iconography of the Victorian fallen woman was associated with music, reviving an ancient tradition conflating the practice of music with sin and the abandonment of music with holiness. The prominence of music symbolism in the socially-committed, quasi-religious paintings of the Pre-Raphaelites and their circle, and in the Catholic-Wagnerian novels of George Moore, gives evidence of the survival of a pictorial language linking music with sin and conversion, and shows, even more remarkably, that this language translated fairly easily into the cultural lexicon of Victorian Britain. Drawing upon music iconography, art history, patristic theology, and sensory theory, Grella O’Connell investigates female fallenness and its implications against the backdrop of the social and religious turbulence of the mid-nineteenth century.

Download or read book Crosscurrents in Phenomenology PDF or another Format written by R. Bruzina and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2012-12-06 with total page 330 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: One of the greatest and oldest of images for expressing living change is that of the movement of waters. Rivers particularly, in their relentless motion, in the constant searching direction of their travel, in the confluence of tributaries and the division into channels by which identity is constituted and dispersed and once more reestablished, have stood as metaphors for movements in a variety of realms-politics, religion, literature, thought. Among philosophic movements, phenomenology and existential ism are discernible as one such movement of ideas analogous in configuration to the flow of a river in its channel or network of channels. The course taken by the stream of phenomenology and existential philosophy in North America is easily seen from the contents of the six volumes of collected papers from the annual meetings of the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philo sophy that have preceded the present selection. What soon becomes clear in general, and is evident as well in the present volume, is that phenomenological and existential philosophies are far from being homogeneous, are far from showing an identity as to the sources from which they derive their energy, or the themes that they carry forward toward clarification. And yet there is a con fluence, a convergence of orientation, sympathy, and conceptuality, INTRODUCTION 4 SO that problematics harmonize and complement and mutually enrich.

Download or read book Roman Catholics and Shi'i Muslims PDF or another Format written by James A. Bill and published by Univ of North Carolina Press. This book was released on 2002-05-09 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: i" --> This timely work explores two influential religious traditions that might seem to have little in common: Twelver Shi'i Islam and Roman Catholicism. With the worldwide rise of religious fundamentalism, it is imperative that religious movements such as Christianity and Islam begin working harder to understand one another's history and beliefs. Myths and misunderstandings continue to prevail, and observers tend to focus on the differences between the two faith systems. Without denying these differences, the authors of this book reveal a number of interesting linkages between Roman Catholicism and Twelver Shi'ism. They compare the histories of the two faiths, consider parallels between important figures in each, and highlight the doctrinal, structural, and sociopolitical similarities they share. Balanced in tone and carefully researched, the book helps explain the essence of both traditions while enriching our understanding of each. There are an estimated 140 million Twelver Shi'is in the world today. The highest percentages live in Persian Gulf countries, including Iran and Iraq, and in Azerbaijan, Lebanon, and Afghanistan. Sizable numbers also inhabit Pakistan, India, and Turkey. The largest Christian denomination, Roman Catholicism is present across the globe, though its population of more than one billion people is concentrated in North and South America and in Europe.

Download or read book Wagering on Transcendence PDF or another Format written by Phyllis Carey and published by Rowman & Littlefield. This book was released on 1997 with total page 299 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Wagering on Transcendence explores the question of ultimate meaning in literature. Through essays, Mount Mary College professors from various disciplines analyze several pieces of literature from a variety of genres and authors to show how each depicts the human struggle to find meaning. The essays analyze concrete examples of spiritual journeys, the ways in which nature can be an avenue of transcendence, the transforming effect that the search for meaning can have on the individual, how transcendence can be experienced through community, the roles of language and story in the quest for transcendence, and the wager itself: how our bets about the existence of the Divine determine how we live our lives.
Download or read book Teresa of Avila PDF or another Format written by Peter Tyler and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2014-02-13 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this strikingly original book, published to mark the fifth centenary of Teresa of Avila's birth, Dr Peter Tyler takes the writings of the sixteenth-century Spanish reformer and brings them into dialogue with some of the foremost thinkers who have shaped our contemporary notion of self. Starting with Freud and Kant, Tyler shows how the post-modern deconstruction of the self has allowed new possibilities for the spiritual to emerge once again as a vital force in our self-understanding. Key psychological and philosophical notions such as the unconscious, ego and desire are presented in ways that open up the door to the soul. Inspired by Teresa of Avila, Tyler offers possibilities of spiritual freedom to the troubled, contemporary self.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An inspired and impassioned historical examination of humanity's search for the divine From Plato to Wittgenstein and religions from Judaism to the Hindu tradition, interspersed with divine influences from Classical Greece, Romantic poetry, and the occasional scene from 'Alien', ‘God: A Guide for the Perplexed’ charts the path of humanity's great spiritual odyssey: the search for God. Leading the way through this minefield is acclaimed philosopher-theologian Keith Ward, blending the sublime and the eclectic in a narrative which offers wit, erudition and moments of genuine pathos. As a survey of the different manifestations of God through the centuries, and an examination of humanity's search for the divine, this is an engaging and informative book. As a deeply moving testament to our endless capacity for spiritual hope, it is compulsive reading for anyone interested in, or embarking on, the great quest for meaning. ‘A lively and very clearly written discussion summarizing and criticizing the thoughts of many significant thinkers.’ Times Literary Supplement ‘Wry but delightfully non-ironic, intelligent and clear, this book is a blessing. ‘ Publishers Weekly ‘Highly informed, witty and immensely accessible. One of the most congenial, lively and informative introductions to this field.’ Alister McGrath, Professor of Historical Theology, Oxford University
