Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man

Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man

This is the seventh book in a progressive series based on the revelations of consciousness research. It describes in detail how to discern not only truth from falsehood but also the illusion of appearance from the actual core of reality. The text explains how to differentiate perception from essence, and thereby enables the reader to resolve the ambiguities and classical riddles that have challenged mankind for centuries and baffled the best minds in history. While modern technologies have provided a phethora of new toys and conveniences, the basic problems of daily existence remain. This book provides the tools to survive and regain fundamental autonomy and inner harmony while living with the complexities of the modern world.

Along the Path to Enlightenment

Along the Path to Enlightenment

What blocks spiritual progress? And how do we transcend these blocks? The spiritual teachings of David R. Hawkins on the nature of consciousness, spirit, and ego are known worldwide by students seeking to realize spiritual Truth. As a mystic, Dr. Hawkins has infused the truths found in the precepts of Western religion with the core of Eastern philosophy, bridging the familiar, physical world to the nonlinear, spiritual domain. This collection of passages, carefully selected from Dr. Hawkins’s extensive writings, offers readers a new contemplation for each day. Any one of these passages, fully understood, can elevate one’s level of consciousness.

Healing and Recovery

Healing and Recovery

These holistic lectures were first presented to a variety of recovery organizations and clinicians from diverse backgrounds. The emphasis is on recovery in its fullest sense - mental, physical, psychological and spiritual. To "heal" means to make whole, in contrast to "treating," which is limited and short-sighted. The author draws from a diverse clinical background of over 50 years as a leader in the field of psychiatry. This, and his own spiritual evolution, led to a series of over eight books on the subject of human consciousness itself. Our society lives with constant stress, anxiety, fear, pain, depression, worry and addiction. This book is a dedication to the relief of human suffering in its varous expressions. To truly heal is to "make whole" on all levels.

Power vs. Force

Power vs. Force

All human endeavors have the common goal of understanding or influencing human experience. To this end, man has developed numerous descriptive and analytical disciplines: Morality, Philosophy, Psychology, and so on. Regardless of what branch of inquiry one starts from-philosophy, political theory, theology-all avenues of investigation eventually converge at a common meeting point: the quest for an organized understanding of the nature of pure consc iousness. To explain that which is simple can be difficult indeed. Much of this book is devoted to the process of making the simple obvious. If we can understand even one simple thing in depth, we will have greatly expanded our capacity for comprehending the nature of the universe and life itself.

A new paradigm of reality?

A new paradigm of reality?

The vision that culture has historically offered about reality has failed to help humans to live fully or to achieve their potential. A knowledge revolution has been taking place in recent years that, once it is understood, can completely transform human beings, offering new solutions to personal and collective problems because their root causes have been identified at last. What we now know means that we can understand spiritual truths and their multiple dimensions without abandoning rationality. This new vision is strong enough to put an end to human suffering and boost inner peace, which is for what every being human yearns. New science sees an intelligent design in the whole Universe. Quantum physics has revolutionized our knowledge of reality. All scientists are now aware of the quantum "enigmas" but not everyone agrees on how to interpret them. This book offers an interpretation that might explain them, and one that is based on the idea of "science within consciousness". As you read the book, it will become evident that this interpretation most closely resembles the vision of reality that both the perennial wisdom of Humanity and the teachings of the great spiritual masters have offered us throughout history. The first part of the book outlines briefly what some of the leading thinkers on science and philosophy have to say about reality and how this new vision of the world is converging with what the perennial wisdom of Humanity has been saying throughout our history. The second part seeks to explain what can happen to us when we are exposed to this new knowledge and how all of us can change inside ourselves in the light of this information. This book aims to unite, not divide, helping Humanity to raise its level of consciousness, allowing us to live a higher quality life in accordance with our spiritual dimension.

The Natural Bible for Modern and Future Man

The Ultimate Theology of the Still Evolving Mind

The Natural Bible for Modern and Future Man

Writing under the pen name John F. Brain, the author of The Natural Bible for Modern and Future Man calls upon the most advanced knowledge of modern neuroscience to discuss the origin and practice of religions around the world. The author uses contemporary knowledge of the interaction of the three principal development stages of neural evolution in humans to explain the wide range of religious beliefs and related behavior among the various cultures in the global community. This book is directed towards those interested in issues such as separation of church and state, the ethical application of new human sciences, changing views of sexuality, and the continued clash of cultures around the globe. The Natural Bible for Modern and Future Man strongly emphasizes the need for greater care in exercising the responsibilities of leadership, especially those involved in legislative, judicial, and educational processes.

Remaking Men

Jung, Spirituality and Social Change

Remaking Men

The nature of masculinity is a popular subject for contemporary authors, either treated critically from a sociological standpoint, or analysed from a psychological and spiritual perspective. In Remaking Men, David Tacey argues that we must strive to bridge the gap between these separate traditions - masculinity should neither be hijacked by the spiritual, Jung-influenced men's movement, nor discussed merely as a product of socio-political forces. Examining his own and other men's experience in a critical and lively discourse he evades the simplistic optimism of the 'inner journey' approach and the chronic pessimism of contemporary academic arguments. This is a fascinating and very accessible look at masculinity for those who want to explore self and society with intelligence and soul.

Beyond Physicalism

Toward Reconciliation of Science and Spirituality

Beyond Physicalism

The rise of modern science has brought with it increasing acceptance among intellectual elites of a worldview that conflicts sharply both with everyday human experience and with beliefs widely shared among the world’s great cultural traditions. Most contemporary scientists and philosophers believe that reality is at bottom purely physical, and that human beings are nothing more than extremely complicated biological machines. On such views our everyday experiences of conscious decision-making, free will, and the self are illusory by-products of the grinding of our neural machinery. It follows that mind and personality are necessarily extinguished at death, and that there exists no deeper transpersonal or spiritual reality of any sort. Beyond Physicalism is the product of an unusual fellowship of scientists and humanities scholars who dispute these views. In their previous publication, Irreducible Mind, they argued that physicalism cannot accommodate various well-evidenced empirical phenomena including paranormal or psi phenomena, postmortem survival, and mystical experiences. In this new theory-oriented companion volume they go further by attempting to understand how the world must be constituted in order that these “rogue” phenomena can occur. Drawing upon empirical science, metaphysical philosophy, and the mystical traditions, the authors work toward an improved “big picture” of the general character of reality, one which strongly overlaps territory traditionally occupied by the world’s institutional religions, and which attempts to reconcile science and spirituality by finding a middle path between the polarized fundamentalisms, religious and scientific, that have dominated recent public discourse.

The Spirituality Revolution

The Emergence of Contemporary Spirituality

The Spirituality Revolution

The Spirituality Revolution : The emergence of contemporary spirituality recognises that we have outgrown the ideals and values of previous times and reveals an image of the spiritual situation of our era. Recent discoveries in physics, biology, psychology and ecology have begun to restore status to previously discredited spiritual visions of reality and this book illustrates the ways in which we might uncover a universal spiritual wisdom that could transform our splintered world. Topics explored include the current state of the Western experience of spirit, our need for spiritual guidance when we cannot turn to organised religion in their traditional forms, and the creative potentials of spirit in education, personal experience, contemporary philosophy and popular feeling for the environment.
