With economies in peril, war in the Middle East, genocides, global warming, and a host of other grim phenomena, the world has never seemed so besieged. The solution, says Robert Sardello, lies with the individual. In this timely, thoughtful book, he explains how the soul can engage with the outer world to produce radical change. Because we think of the world as a vast mechanism and behave as mechanical objects in it, the results are devastation and dysfunction. The key is to learn to identify with the plight of the Earth by developing a true sense of individual imagination and conscious awareness of inner purpose and beauty in conjunction with the soul of the world. Sardello shows how to achieve this awareness and bring what is inside out into the world, inspiring balance and stability. Using the Grail legend and the myth of Sophia—known as the Soul of the World—as well as writings by Jung, James Hillman, and Rudolf Steiner, Love and the Soul helps readers imagine a revitalized Earth by exploring the significance of grieving, the transformative power of radical receptivity, the creative power of dreaming, and a new basis for community.

The Soul Truth is a collection of channeled writing and spiritual wisdom through which the author has gained during her own personal awakening. These messages originate from the spirit and energy of love and their purpose is to awaken the memory in each of us that we are all one and that love is our natural and authentic state of existence. This book reminds us that fear is merely a tool used by the human ego to keep us from experiencing the joy and peace that come from staying grounded in our natural state of love. Using metaphors that are current and relevant to our modern world, the author re-introduces age old concepts such as faith, gratitude, and forgiveness. Her metaphors are fitting and beautiful but so simplistic at the same time, making it easy to absorb and understand. The Soul Truth gives evidence of our oneness, not only with each other, but with the entire universe. Reverend Marcy Ellen reminds us that we are all connected and interdependent, and that by excluding any part of the human race for any reason, we are only hurting ourselves.

The Daughter Zion allegory represents a particular narrative articulation of the paradigm of bridal mysticism deriving from the Song of Songs, the core element of which is the quest of Daughter Zion for a worthy object of love. Examining medieval German religious writing (verse and prose) and Dutch prose works, Annette Volfing shows that this storyline provides an excellent springboard for investigating key aspects of medieval religious and literary culture. In particular, she argues, the allegory lends itself to an exploration of the medieval sense of self; of the scope of human agency within the mystical encounter; of the gendering of the religious subject; of conceptions of space and enclosure; and of fantasies of violence and aggression. Volfing suggests that Daughter Zion adaptations increasingly tended to empower the religious subject to seek a more immediate relationship with the divine and to embrace a wider range of emotions: the mediating personifications are gradually eliminated in favour of a model of religious experience in which the human subject engages directly with Christ. Overall, the development of the allegory from the twelfth to the fifteenth centuries marks the striving towards a greater sense of equality and affective reciprocity with the divine, within the context of an erotic union.

For a generation of musicians and fans, the late Ray Charles provided the catalyst that fused the previously largely exclusive genres of jazz, blues and gospel music. In an era when jazz and pop music were seemingly poles apart, the impact of Charles' music was truly revolutionary in that it brought together these strands and fans for the first time.This critically acclaimed biography traces Ray Charles' amazing story from the abject disadvantage of being orphaned, black and blind in the South of the 1930s to the height of international success.With many quotes and exclusive interviews, including several with Ray Charles himself as well as from those who worked with, or were simply influenced by, the man who more than anyone else could truly be called the founding father of soul music.Mike Evans was a regular contributor to Sounds, Cream, and Melody Maker. He is also the author of books on The Beatles, Elvis Presley and the music in New York.Paperback edition.
