The spiritual-scientific investigator has ... to transform the soul itself into an instrument; then - when his soul is awakened and he can see into a spiritual world - he experiences, on a higher level, a similar great moment as blind people do when, having been operated upon, they look at a world they have not seen before. In a key series of lectures on personal development, Rudolf Steiner explains that the central mission of spiritual science is to enable people to ascend, in full consciousness, to a knowledge of spiritual realities. But given that the means to achieve spiritual perception are now widely available, the danger exists that some individuals will gain access to the spiritual world whilst harbouring impure motives. This can lead to a distorted understanding and vision of that world. Steiner's emphasis, therefore, is on the preparatory steps - the metamorphosis and purification of the human soul - required for achieving true spiritual enlightenment. Life itself teaches and prepares us for progress, and anthroposophy explains and brings this to consciousness. In some of his most lucid lectures, Steiner describes the missions of anger, truth and reverence, the significance of human character, the meaning of asceticism and illness, and the phenomenon of egoism. He also clarifies the differences between Buddhism and Christianity, describes the goal of spiritual science, and makes some esoteric observations about the moon. Throughout the talks Steiner refers to many significant historical figures, including St Augustine, Coleridge, Leonardo da Vinci, Madame Blavatsky, Goethe, Homer, and Shakespeare.

Psalms And The Transformation Of Stress

Professor Sylva has written a major book in what Clifford Geertz terms "blurred genres." By that Geertz means a study that refuses to stay slotted in a specified scholarly discipline, but reaches across such distinctions, in order to face real and complex human issues. As biblical scholarship moves out of its more positivistic modes, it is able to make contact with human dimensions of the text that "objectivist" criticism had long precluded. In this book, Sylva with painstaking research and urbane articulation reflects upon how the Psalms touch fractured human conditions in healing ways. This is no surface interpreation of scripture for the sake of "an easy religious fix," and it is no "pop psychology," because the author has thought with great steadfastness and is informed on both sides of the interface. The power of his argument is in the detail of human stress and in the effective nuance of the poetry. For his interface he employs the intriguing term "theotherapy." I have no doubt that this book will become a major resource for bringing back together text and human reality that our recent interpretative past has rent asunder. Sylva invites us to a new conversation as we "blur" our safer points of reference. Walter Brueggemann Professor of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary This book seeks to uncover the serious and deep ways in which the Psalms speak to the human situation. Few works that I know of have sought to bring the Psalms to bear on the stresses and strains, the functions and dysfunctions of the family as has been done here. Professor Sylva endeavors to show how the Psalms create a fundamental trust in God, a trust that moves out into all other relationships starting with the family. This is something that happened to me as a child and that I came to realize only much later. In this work, The Pslams are clearly not simply a springboard to say some things about family therapy. They are the heart of this book, and it is only as they are heard in detail that one then moves or is carried by them into a more secure family relationship. I hope very much that this work will enhance the reading and appropriation of the Psalms within the family as a source of family health and strength. Patrick D. Miller Professor of Old Testament Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary Dana Sylva is Associate Professor of Biblical Studies at Saint Francis Seminary in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He is the editor of "Reimaging the Death of the Lukan Jesus" (1990), and he has published articles on Old testament and New Testament exegesis.

MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME IN GOD'S HEART: After 7 years of volunteering to serve the men, women, and children at a very popular outreach center in Atlanta, GA, I stumbled upon an amazing personal discovery. I came to the humble realization that homelessness is not simply a state of physical destitution. But homelessness is also a place of spiritual and emotional emptiness. It is very true that some live in a perpetual state of misfortune and need the relationship, the challenge, and the encouragement of others to "dare to hope" that their circumstances are only temporary. Many undoubtedly need financial relief to end their state of homelessness. Yet, each of us, whether well off or destitute, can attest to the fact that at one point or another we have felt abandoned and displaced. While serving as an outreach leader, I found a new family. I discovered though I had a physical dwelling, I too was in an emotional state of homelessness. While serving the homeless, I struggled to conquer my own issues with abandonment. I found myself desperately attempting to place the pieces of my own life in a recognizable order. And it was while serving that I found an extension of God's family that are far too often overlooked, disqualified, and misunderstood. Each month I would show up with a fresh sermon in hand-ready to inspire and motivate those whom "I thought" were in need of encouragement. But each time, I left with the discovery that I needed it more than any of them. I arrived ready to inspire, but left all the more inspired myself.HOPE FOR THE SOUL is inspired by the men, women, and children seeking love, purpose, and a reason to believe that a better experience of life exists. In this book, you too will discover that there is a secret place in God's heart to find all the rest, affirmation, and love you have been longing for. HOPE FOR THE SOUL is guaranteed to strengthen your ability to:*Speak life to every dead dream*Pursue your God-given power*Declare freedom from past failures*Perform at maximum capacity in His strength*Trust God and His promises to build a better life!!

You Can Depend Use caution in the beginning Use wisdom in the end Use patience as you move through life On truth you can depend "My poems, or 'literary expressions' as I prefer to describe are purposeful and subtly encourage readers to bring forth their unique and transformative genius. They gently point a direction to those on their journey of life. And while on this journey, my work suggests to travel lightly and with levity - not taking oneself too seriously along life's way. Often described as proverbs, my poems have a striking brevity that ignites a slow-burning fire with a subtle yet enduring impact. And in a flash of spirit, my work is at once simplistic and profound, hidden and revealing. . . elusive and evident. This embracing of seemingly opposites results from my turning to my inner spirit - becoming a vessel that connects me with infinite spirit. This connection allows my work to touch all and transform through the unity of oneness of spirit and life experience."

In 1948, the Afrikaner Nationalist Government became the ruling party in South Africa and instituted the brutal system known as apartheid. To maintain their power, Afrikaners drew on Christian scripture and traditions to create self-justifying religious narratives that supported their oppressive ideologies, prohibiting inclusion and suppressing pluralism. In time these Afrikaner-Christian narratives began to unravel as counter-narratives within the Christian tradition influenced the Black church to demand equality and democracy. This socio-political and cultural transformation is best understood and interpreted through the vision of ubuntu: a mode of thought in African culture that places a value on humanity in community and shifts the focus from singularity to plurality in South African society. In The Ubuntu God, Samuel A. Paul traces how the dismantling of apartheid led to recognition of the religious other, the recovery of alternate narratives, and the reappearance of ubuntu perspective and practice in the political and public sphere. After the peaceful transition to a democratically elected government, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission created a platform for multiple voices, stories, and religious narratives to be shared in a public political context. This multiplicity of voices resulted, ultimately, in the formation of a new constitution for South Africa that sought to uphold African values of community and inclusion in its institutions. While South Africa's apartheid system and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission are both rooted in the biblical narrative, the former used its theology to enforce an iron rule while the latter combined Christian and African concepts to create a pluralistic and open society. Such a society is characterized by a culture that emphasizes communality and interdependence.

In the popular mind, the mystic is seen as the supreme solitary. This image, if accurate, would make the mystical quest marginal in an era when much theology has emphasized socially responsible praxis. Against the popular image, Mary Frohlich develops a theological model -- based on the writings of Bernard Lonergan and the "self-psychology" of Heinz Kohut -- that both respects mysticism's irreducible character and shows how it concretely transforms people and systems. She then applies this model to an interpretation of a classic expression of spiritual transformation, the Interior Castle of the sixteenth-century mystic Teresa of Avila.

Plotinus, the father of Neoplatonism, lived in Rome during the third century AD. For many scholars -- not only classicists and philosophers but medievalists, renaissance specialists, Islamists, theologians, and students of religion -- he remains a figure of commanding importance. Yet his work is seen as forbidding and inaccessible. The increase in Plotinian scholarship since the 1970s has included works that, although deeply rooted in scholarship, aim at a wider audience. Form and Transformation, while in that tradition, is the first book in English to provide an accessible introduction to Plotinus from an open, contemplative approach, examining in detail Plotinus' interpretation of the Platonic Theory of Forms.
