To Master Key System

Genre: Self-Help

Το “Σύστημα του Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού” (Master Key System) του Charles Francis Haanel, δημοσιευμένο το 1916, είναι μια διδασκαλία στην αυτογνωσία και την αυτοενδυνάμωση. Πρωτοεμφανίστηκε το 1912 μέσα στα μασονικά καταλύματα, αρχικά στη μορφή των μαθημάτων των 24 εβδομάδων και μετά το 1916 συστήθηκε στο κοινό για πρώτη φορά με μορφή βιβλίου. Τα 24 κεφάλαια περιλαμβάνουν ενδιαφέροντα γεγονότα, όχι μόνο κεφάλαια με ασκήσεις αλλά και κεφάλαια με ερωτήσεις και απαντήσεις- δείτε επίσης απόσπασμα του βιβλίου στο www.master-key-system.org Αυτό (το πολύτιμο) που το θεμελιώδες κλειδί κάνει, είναι η συστηματική δομή της επίκτητης γνώσης, καθώς και οι ασκήσεις. Σταδιακά οδηγεί τους μαθητές του Charles Haanel στη μεγέθυνση του θέματος, δίνοντας χρόνο να κατοπτρίσει και να επανεξετάσει όσα έχουν μάθει. Εξηγεί τις σχέσεις ανάμεσα στα αυτά που αποκαλούμε “Θεό” ή “Παγκόσμια Συνείδηση” και εμάς, το άτομο. Το δεύτερο είναι ένα κανάλι μέσω του οποίου η παγκόσμια έκφραση δίνει και το Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού μας λέει ακριβώς πώς αυτό εκφράζεται. Το Σύστημα του Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού περιστρέφεται γύρω από την αλήθεια. Μαθαίνεις τι είναι η αλήθεια και τι σημαίνει να την εκφράζεις. Θα μάθεις την τέχνη του να γίνεσαι ένα με το αντικείμενο των σκέψεών σου. Μαθαίνεις μία επιθυμία σαν ένα ήδη υπάρχον γεγονός για να δεις και να νοιώσεις πραγματικά. Αρκετά βιβλία και διδασκαλίες σε αριθμό έχουν αντιμετωπίσει αυτό το θέμα. Παρόλα αυτά, κατά τη γνώμη μου, το Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού είναι ο πιο χρήσιμος οδηγός σε έναν νέο εαυτό και κατά συνέπεια σε μία νέα ζωή. Κανένας στο παρελθόν δεν έχει τόσο συστηματικά χτίσει και πάνω από όλα θετικά και απλά εξηγήσει πώς λειτουργεί η δημιουργία και πώς εμείς, σαν άτομα, μπορούμε να το εκμεταλλευτούμε, χωρίς όμως να εκμεταλλευόμαστε άλλους ανθρώπους. Το Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού μελετώντας το και εντάσσοντάς το στη ζωή, οδηγεί στη δημιουργία μίας ξεχωριστής προσωπικότητας η οποία είναι γεμάτη αυτοπεποίθηση, κουράγιο και κίνητρο. Εφαρμόζοντας τις αρχές και τους νόμους που μαθαίνονται στο Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού, ο άνθρωπος είναι τόσο γεμάτος ενέργεια που μετατρέπεται σε μαγνήτη για όλα τα όμορφα και καλοπροαίρετα πράγματα. Ταυτόχρονα είναι στις υπηρεσίες της ανθρωπότητας, δείχνοντας την ταπεινότητά του πριν τη δημιουργία και συνεχίζοντας με υπευθυνότητα στη ζωή. Η μελέτη χρειάζεται πειθαρχία και συγκέντρωση. Οι ασκήσεις αποτελούν αναπόσπαστο μέρος και είναι μείζονος σημασίας, καθώς μέσω αυτών πραγματοποιείται η επέκταση της συνείδησης και ο επαναπρογραμματισμός του υποσυνείδητου μυαλού. Με την απλή και μόνο ανάγνωση του βιβλίου, θα υπάρξει μία μικρή πνευματική ικανοποίηση. Αν και τα τελευταία χρόνια η γνώση έχει προχωρήσει πολύ, το Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού εξακολουθεί να σχετίζεται με το σήμερα όπως σχετιζόταν πάντα. Αυτό που έγραψε τότε ο Charles Haanel, σήμερα είναι ακόμα πιο σημαντικό. Τα παλιά συστήματα και οι δομές που δε δημιουργούνταν για το καλό όλων εμπίπτουν σε αυτό- κάτι το οποίο είναι παντού εμφανές. Ταυτόχρονα, επιταχύνοντας της ανάπτυξη της συνείδησης, πολλοί άνθρωποι “αναγκάζονται¨ να αναπροσανατολιστούν δηλαδή να ξανασκεφτούν και να επαναδιαπραγματευτούν γιατί συνειδητοποιούν πως δεν μπορούν και δε θα συνεχίσουν να ζουν με τον τρόπο που ζούσαν μέχρι τώρα. Πολλά μπορούν να αποδοθούν στο Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού, αλλά το πραγματικό όφελος προκύπτει από τη μελέτη την ίδια. Επομένως, χρησιμοποίησε τη δύναμή σου και ζήσε μία ζωή που δεν είχες ούτε ονειρευτεί στο παρελθόν. Εξαρτάται από εσένα. Η κληρονομιά περιμένει να τη διεκδικήσεις. Το βήμα αυτό που πρέπει να κάνεις για τον εαυτό σου, μπορεί και θα μετακινήσει οποιονδήποτε. Σου εγγυώμαι, πως δε θα μετανιώσεις ποτέ αυτό το βήμα στην καινούργια ζωή. Ακριβώς το αντίθετο. Όταν δεις αυτό που συμβαίνει, αυτό που έχει συμβεί στη ζωή μου και συνεχίζει να συμβαίνει, τότε θα είσαι ευγνώμων που ακολούθησες το Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού.

Ginseng the Divine Root

Author: David A. Taylor
Publisher: Algonquin Books
ISBN: 9781565127449
Release Date: 2006-06-23
Genre: Health & Fitness

The story behind ginseng is as remarkable as the root itself. Prized for its legendary curative powers, ginseng launched the rise to power of China's last great dynasty; inspired battles between France and England; and sparked a boom in Minnesota comparable to the California Gold Rush. It has made and broken the fortunes of many and has inspired a subculture in rural America unrivaled by any herb in the plant kingdom. Today ginseng is at the very center of alternative medicine, believed to improve stamina, relieve stress, stimulate the immune system, enhance mental clarity, and restore well-being. It is now being studied by medical researchers for the treatment of cancer, diabetes, and Parkinson's disease. In Ginseng, the Divine Root, David Taylor tracks the path of this fascinating plant—from the forests east of the Mississippi to the bustling streets of Hong Kong and the remote corners of China. He becomes immersed in a world full of wheelers, dealers, diggers, and stealers, all with a common goal: to hunt down the elusive "Root of Life." Weaving together his intriguing adventures with ginseng's rich history, Taylor uncovers a story of international crime, ancient tradition, botany, herbal medicine, and the vagaries of human nature.

Divine Powers in Late Antiquity

Author: Anna Marmodoro
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780191079955
Release Date: 2017-01-26
Genre: Religion

Is power the essence of divinity, or are divine powers distinct from divine essence? Are they divine hypostases or are they divine attributes? Are powers such as omnipotence, omniscience, etc. modes of divine activity? How do they manifest? In which way can we apprehend them? Is there a multiplicity of gods whose powers fill the cosmos or is there only one God from whom all power(s) derive(s) and whose power(s) permeate(s) everything? These are questions that become central to philosophical and theological debates in Late Antiquity (roughly corresponding to the period 2nd to the 6th centuries). On the one hand, the Pagan Neoplatonic thinkers of this era postulate a complex hierarchy of gods, whose powers express the unlimited power of the ineffable One. On the other hand, Christians proclaim the existence of only one God, one divine power or one 'Lord of all powers'. Divided into two main sections, the first part of Divine Powers in Late Antiquity examines aspects of the notion of divine power as developed by the four major figures of Neoplatonism: Plotinus (c. 204-270), Porphyry (c. 234-305), Iamblichus (c.245-325), and Proclus (412-485). It focuses on an aspect of the notion of divine power that has been so far relatively neglected in the literature. Part two investigates the notion of divine power in early Christian authors, from the New Testament to the Alexandrian school (Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Athanasius the Great) and, further, to the Cappadocian Fathers (Basil the Great, Gregory of Nyssa), as well as in some of these authors' sources (the Septuagint, Philo of Alexandria). The traditional view tends to overlook the fact that the Bible, particularly the New Testament, was at least as important as Platonic philosophical texts in the shaping of the early Christian thinking about the Church's doctrines. Whilst challenging the received interpretation by redressing the balance between the Bible and Greek philosophical texts, the essays in the second section of this book nevertheless argue for the philosophical value of early Christian reflections on the notion of divine power. The two groups of thinkers that each of the sections deal with (the Platonic-Pagan and the Christian one) share largely the same intellectual and cultural heritage; they are concerned with the same fundamental questions; and they often engage in more or less public philosophical and theological dialogue, directly influencing one another.

The Divine Sense

Author: A. N. Williams
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781139461481
Release Date: 2007-02-01
Genre: Religion

A. N. Williams examines the conception of the intellect in patristic theology from its beginnings in the work of the Apostolic Fathers to Augustine and Cassian in the early fifth century. The patristic notion of intellect emerges from its systematic relations to other components of theology: the relation of human mind to the body and the will; the relation of the human to the divine intellect; of human reason to divine revelation and secular philosophy; and from the use of the intellect in both theological reflection and spiritual contemplation. The patristic conception of that intellect is therefore important for the way it signals the character of early Christian theology as both systematic and contemplative and as such, distinctive in its approach from secular philosophies of its time and modern Christian theology.

Four Views on Divine Providence

Author: William Lane Craig
Publisher: Zondervan
ISBN: 9780310547952
Release Date: 2011-04-19
Genre: Religion

Questions about divine providence have preoccupied Christians for generations: Are people elected to salvation? For whom did Jesus die? This book introduces readers to four prevailing views on divine providence, with particular attention to the question of who Jesus died to save (the extent of the atonement) and if or how God determines who will be saved (predestination).But this book does not merely answer readers’ questions. Four Views on Divine Providence helps readers think theologically about all the issues involved in exploring this doctrine. The point-counterpoint format reveals the assumptions and considerations that drive equally learned and sincere theologians to sharp disagreement. It unearths the genuinely decisive issues beneath an often superficial debate. Volume contributors are Paul Helseth (God causes every creaturely event that occurs); William Lane Craig (through his “middle knowledge,” God controls the course of worldly affairs without predetermining any creatures’ free decisions); Ron Highfield (God controls creatures by liberating their decision-making); and Gregory Boyd (human decisions can be free only if God neither determines nor knows what they will be). Introductory and closing essays by Dennis Jowers give relevant background and guide readers toward their own informed beliefs about divine providence.
