A fifteen-year-old boy is walking through a swirling fog on his way to school when a voice calls out, "Come here. We need to talk." Out of the mist emerges an old man with a white beard. He is a fantastic figure, as wizardly as Merlin, as wise as Socrates, as peaceful as Buddha. Whoever he is, the old man has appeared on that very day to change the boy's life. "You are old enough to learn about things," he says mysteriously. "And who is going to teach you but me?" The old man gives the boy four days of "soul training," a time of riddles, tricks, parables, and incredible twists that brings out surprising answers to each of four burning questions about spirituality: Do I have a soul? How do wishes come true? What is the supreme force in the universe? How can I change the world? "The old man with the white beard showed me the spiritual side of life," writes Deepak Chopra, "where real passion and excitement come from. So before you begin, take a deep breath. This story could turn out to be yours."

Before "New Age" there was "New Thought," a philosophy that sought God through metaphysics and was wildly popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. American mystic and bestselling author RALPH WALDO TRINE (1866-1958) was one of the most influential writers on New Thought principles, and here, in this 1906 work, he rails against some of the most troubling social problems of his day... and ours: . child hunger in properous cities . the unfair distribution of wealth in the United States . the crushing effects of poverty on the family . the abuses of private corporations . and more. Trine's liberal outlook is remarkably modern, and alas, his cry for social justice is all too pertinent more than a century after his anger caught fire in this remarkable book.

Fire in the Heart uncovers the dynamic processes through which some white Americans become activists for racial justice. The book reports powerful accounts of the development of racial awareness drawn from in-depth interviews with fifty white activists in the fields of community organizing, education, and criminal justice reform. Drawing extensively on the rich interview material, Mark Warren shows how white Americans can develop a commitment to racial justice, not just because it is the right thing to do, but because they embrace the cause as their own. Contrary to much contemporary thinking on racial issues focused on altruism or interests, Warren finds that cognitive and rational processes alone do little to move whites to action. Rather, the motivation to take and sustain action for racial justice is profoundly moral and relational. Warren shows how white activists come to find common cause with people of color when their core values are engaged, as they build relationships with people of color that lead to caring, and when they develop a vision of a racially just future that they understand to benefit everyone--themselves, other whites, and people of color. Warren also considers the complex dynamics and dilemmas white people face in working in multiracial organizations committed to systemic change in America's racial order, and provides a deeper understanding and appreciation of the role that white people can play in efforts to promote racial justice. The first study of its kind, Fire in the Heart brings to light the perspectives of white people who are working day-to-day to build not a post-racial America but the foundations for a truly multiracial America rooted in a caring, human community with equity and justice at its core.
In this new book, the third in the trilogy that began with The Magus of Strovolos and Homage to the Sun, Markides continues his fascinating pursuit of the mystical teachings of Daskalos and Kostas, two Greek Cypriot healers and masters of metaphysical knowledge.
FIRE IN THE HEART is a powerful memoir by a woman, once a shy, insecure schoolgirl, who reinvented herself as a professional wildlands firefighter. Determined to forge herself into a stronger, braver person, Mary devotes herself to fire from the Florida swamp to Alaska’s interior. Filled with literal struggles for survival, tough choices and Mary's burning passion for what she does, Fire in the Heart, is an unflinching account of one woman’s relationship with fire. But when she loses a close friend to the famous Storm King Mountain forest fire in Colorado, which killed fourteen firefighters, Mary faces the hardest choice of her life; to stay in the game or turn back and try to find the woman she used to be. It is both a thrilling memoir about life-threatening work and a meditation on identity, strength, bravery, bonds, and survivor’s guilt.
Strong-willed Amnesty Brown leaves Boston to claim an inheritance in the Sierra Nevada mountains and finds herself the owner and new editor of the town newspaper, and falling in love with saloon owner Haydn Lomax
The poems presented here represent a first attempt at finding an audience broader than the small circle of my friends. Most of the poems were written between 1995 and 2010. Fire in the Heart is a title of special significance. The suggestion of a passionate creative struggle in that part which has long been considered the symbolic center of the human soul should be apparent. There is also a meaning which exists in stark physical terms. At the age of 36, I had a heart disease which turned my heart into useless fluttering pulp. The disease, myocardial sarcoidosis, caused my heart to stay inflamed, chronically, as though it were fighting some sort of infection -- as though it were on fire. I have a new heart now, a transplanted heart, and while the destructive inflammation of my disease has departed along with my failing native heart, my soul has remained intact though still inflamed. It is consumed, more than ever, by an acute and disturbing awareness of the finite nature of our human existence which I beat back through the affirmation of creativity. Such is the nature of my writing.
