Perhaps the most important section in Dan Millman's best-selling book, The Life You Were Born to Live was titled Laws that Change Lives. These laws, as described, were key to overcoming the specific hurdles on a given individual's life path. Different laws played critical roles for different paths. But the author considers these laws so central to all our lives that they needed a book of their own, and a more universal treatment, since anyone could benefit from applying any of these laws. As he writes: "Within the mystery of our existence, the universe operates according to spiritual laws as real as the law of gravity and as constant as the turning of the heavens. Aligning our lives to these laws can transform our relationships, careers, finances, and health. Simply put, they make life work better." The Laws of Spirit, Dan Millman's "little book of big wisdom," offers a teaching tale in which he encounters an ageless woman sage while on a mountain hike. There, in the wilderness, she takes Dan and his readers through experiences and tests in the natural world that demonstrate the power of spiritual laws of balance, choice, process, presence, compassion, faith, action, patience, , surrender, and unity. As the sage relates, "These laws belong to all of us. They rest within our hearts and at the heart of every religion and spiritual tradition." As you make your own journey through the pages of this book, you will find universal solutions to the varied challenges of our lives, leading to perspective and wisdom about the meaning and purpose of our lives here, and our connection with all of creation It begins with a single step: Open the first page of a book you will refer to again and again for inspiration and guidance on life’s journey, up the mountain path.

There are many aspects of Buddhism found in most religions. These include ethics and morality, altruism and iconic stories of inspirational people. But The Little Book of Buddhist Wisdom looks at what makes Buddhism unique. This begins with the most central teaching of Buddhism, The Four Noble Truths. The Four Noble Truths identify our fundamental problem of life and its cause. But more importantly The Four Noble Truths provide the antidote as well, the course of training that leads to greater skill and greater happiness. This path culminates in final release and transcendent knowing. The law of karma states that our actions have consequences. We are not victims of determinism, random chaos or an external authority. While the law of karma allows for circumstances outside of our control, it focuses us on what we can control. Our destinies are in our hands. The most complex and subtle of the Buddha's teachings is that on causation. The teachings on causation describe a universe of every-flowing causes and results, an ocean of experience that changes from moment-to-moment. This is good news because it is the causal nature of life that is the foundation for our ability to evolve, change, become more skilled, and happier. The final wisdom teaching describes the Three Characteristics of conditioned experience: dukkha (stress, or suffering), impermanence (inconstant and unreliable) and non-self. Most of the difficulty we have in life is because we identify with ever-changing phenomena. To become free from this stress we must release these attachments. This is the way to harmony with life and the universe.

Das neue große Buch des Erfolgsautors und berühmten buddhistischen Lehrers Schlägt man ein grundlegendes Buch über den Buddhismus auf, erwartet man als Erstes den Hinweis auf das allem Leben zugrunde liegende Leiden. Nicht so bei Jack Kornfield. Im Ursprung, schreibt er, liegt die Würde, die unser tiefstes Wesen ausmacht. Sie entstammt unserer Verbundenheit mit allem Lebendigen, die die Wurzel jedes wahrhaftigen Mitgefühls ist. Seine Vision des Buddhismus offenbart ein absolut positives und ermutigendes Menschenbild. Kornfield versteht den Buddhismus als großartiges psychologisches Konzept und nicht als ab- und ausgrenzende Religion. „Das weise Herz“ ist ein machtvolles Buch der Heilung und zugleich eine Laudatio auf Buddha als den größten Heiler. Es widerlegt überzeugend die Auffassung, dass über den 2500 Jahre alten Buddhismus nichts wirklich Neues und Aufregendes mehr geschrieben werden kann. „Das weise Herz“ ist Kornfields Meisterwerk und dürfte bald nach seinem Erscheinen einen Platz unter den zeitlosen Klassikern des Genres behaupten. • Jack Kornfield gehört mit dem Dalai Lama und Thich Nhat Hanh zu den ganz großen buddhistischen Lehrern • Erstmalige Darstellung des Buddhismus als eines großartigen Systems positiver Psychologie

The United States of America stands on the precipice of a New American Revolution which will either end our nation as we currently know it or propel us to new heights. Living among us is a remarkable group of revolutionaries, all Millennials, who are tasked with saving and restoring this great nation. Reminiscent of Founding Fathers George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, these God-called young men and women also share commonalities with Martin Luther and Bible heroes Moses, Gideon, David, Daniel, Esther and Nehemiah. Phill Bettis reveals how these emerging leaders will challenge and question almost everything as they begin an incredible journey toward reemergence of personal responsibility, genuine leadership and discovering God again. These unexpected leaders will face daunting challenges as many in the United States are close to giving up on our economy and political environment. Negativity abounds in the media, and instead of being united, citizens are rapidly choosing sides and asking if there is any way to turn America back to the great nation she once was. Full of encouragement and unabashed reality, The Little Book of Annoying Questions seeks to inject a healthy dose of optimism into our public discourse. Bettis pulls no punches, asking difficult questions that force one to confront the issues of our day. Questions posed to our institutions and to us are simultaneously uncomfortable and inspiring. Those questions reveal a remarkable path to preserve our legacy of freedom and American exceptionalism. Timely and compelling, The Little Book of Annoying Questions opens the door to conversations necessary to save the heart and soul of the United States.
