The Way of Nothing

Don't worry; you are still special because your story is special and unique. I am
not trying to patronise you; Ireally believe that. I am not one to negate the story in
favour of the way of nothing. Your story is full of ups and downs, and no one can ...

Though it is simple and obvious, you may not understand the incredible importance of the way of nothing. When you do see the way, you will wonder, "Can it really be this easy and simple?" And seeing that there was never anything in the way of freedom can almost be embarrassing. "How could I have never seen it?" you’ll ask. The Way of Nothing: Nothing in the Way explores the obstacles that stop you from reaching your highest desires: enlightenment, eternal peace, or simply ordinary contentment. These obstacles are nothing more than concepts you have that seem real, yet they vanish with insight into the way. It is a wonderful surprise to discover that there has always been nothing in the way of what you want. Best of all, there is really nothing to it!

Lectionary Story Bible Year A is the first in a series that will cover all three years of the lectionary. The complete set will be an indispensable resource for anyone who wants to share faith stories with children and make the Bible relevant to young people today.

Dieses Buch ist mit viel Freude und Abenteuerlust entstanden, beides springt auf den Leser über. Eine Familie sucht sich selber und entdeckt bei ihren regelmäßigen Zusammenkünften, zur Vorbereitung eines großen Familientreffens, die interessante Seite der Vergangenheit. Die persönlichen Geschichten aus dem Leben der Nachkommenschaft der Familie Wiesheu. Einfache Leute vom heutigen Standpunkt aus betrachtet, damals fleißige und in gewisser Weise stolze Bauern und deren Nachfahren, die ihren Besitz wertschätzten und Aufgaben und Pflichterfüllung über ihre eigenen Bedürfnisse stellten. Aus den Geschichten spricht eine gewisse Bescheidenheit, die jeder Ehrlichkeit zu Grunde liegt. Diese Authentizität ist es, die dem Buch Glaubwürdigkeit verleiht und mitten aus dem Leben der Landbevölkerung des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts ein Zeitzeugnis abgibt. Ein Buch für Menschen, mit Liebe zu ihrer Heimat und Freude am Entdecken der eigenen Vergangenheit. Einige der Geschichten sind auch ins Französische und Englische übersetzt.

A signal contribution to the burgeoning field of comparative philosophy of religion, The Dynamics of Religion describes patterns of living faith in major world religions in a way which corrects misperceptions of them as archaic traditions trapped in the past. Packed with telling examples, this book shows how religions provide meaning and guidance for their followers; what the fundamental constituents of all religions are, including stories, symbols, solutions to the mystery of evil, and more; and how religions are dynamic processes that constantly change and adapt over time. The author concludes that truth comes not from the dogmatic retelling of any single master story, but from the dynamic interplay between stories old and new. What is distinctive in each tradition is not any single set of unchanging meanings but the character of the life lived. The Dynamics of Religion is exhilarating and essential reading for anyone interested in the way religion begins, structure themselves, and develop through time.

“A unique and special kind of masterpiece.” —John Banville Now available in paperback In The Way of Forgiveness, the distinguished writer and translator Stephen Mitchell provides a stirring account of the power and wisdom of forgiveness. Based on the biblical story of Joseph and his brothers—a beautiful, brilliant, arrogant young man is sold into slavery but eventually rises to become viceroy of Egypt—The Way of Forgiveness is a riveting expansion, lush with vivid characters and a captivating sense of place. What’s new here is the lyrical, witty, vivid prose, informed by a wisdom that brings fresh insight to this foundational legend of betrayal and all-embracing forgiveness. Mitchell’s retelling interweaves the narrative with brief meditations that, with their Zen surprises, expand and illuminate the main themes. The engrossing tale that he has created will capture the hearts and minds of modern readers and show them that this ancient story can still challenge, delight, and astonish.
