A collection of personal stories in which grandparents and elders from around the world share from their "reservoirs of wisdom" to inspire and guide. We have all heard that the only constant in life is change. How can we prepare ourselves to walk toward that change with confidence, trust, and faith? How can we maintain our vision without losing our way? In Sharing the Wisdom of Time, Pope Francis offers a simple but profound solution: To see where we should go, we must understand where we've been. The experience and wisdom of those who have come before us can provide the guidance we need to approach tomorrow free of fear and needless anxiety. Sharing the Wisdom of Time is an international effort that collects the stories of elders from over 30 countries carved from lifetimes of experience. From a blind basket weaver in Kenya to an acclaimed filmmaker in Hollywood, from a survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp to a centenarian midwife in Guatemala, every story is a testament to the power of faith, perseverance, human resilience, and love. The experience and lived wisdom of our grandparents and elders can guide the leaders of tomorrow to move forward creatively and confidently as they envision a future of hope. The testimony of our elders will help us to look above the horizon and see the stars.
An unparalleled exploration of Sufism as it is practised around the world, describing meetings with today's enlightened teachers as well as including wonderfully inspiring translations of the great Sufi masters of the past. Ultimately, this book acts as a guide to the Sufi path and offers wise insight into the meaning and purpose of life. A compelling view of Sufi history together with vivid personal remembrances of living mystics. This is an inspiring and at the same time beautifully subtle book, with light-filled insights on every page." – Saadi Shakur Chishti, author of The Sufi Book of Life The Sufi path described in this book leads the seeker past ordinary states of consciousness towards a new experience of infinitude that is the source of the universe. In this stage there is no duality or otherness, but instead infinitude, the Original Oneness, from which all dualities and attributes emanate. The book is at once an autobiography, a didactic treatise and a literary opus full of wonderful translations of the words of earlier Sufis, as well as the author's own poetry. It describes Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri’s life quest to connect today’s world with classical times, especially through his meetings with enlightened Sufis all over the globe. Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri also addresses profound Sufi teachings concerning the nature of humankind, the cosmos and God, using clear and simple language to address difficult doctrinal issues as only a master who has digested fully such knowledge could do. The book also reveals much about the present-day Islamic world where, despite the tragedies that are to be seen everywhere, tradition and spirituality survive. This is a metaphysical and spiritual guide to the Sufi path that ultimately offers insight into the meaning and purpose of life.
The essays collected here, prepared by a think tank of the Elijah Interfaith Academy, explore the challenges associated with sharing wisdom--learning, teachings, messages for good living. How should religions go about sharing their wisdom? These chapters, representing six faith tradition (Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, and Buddhist), explore what wisdom means in each of these traditions; why and how it should be shared, internally and externally; and the role of love and forgiveness in sharing. This book offers a theory that can enrich ongoing encounters between members of faith traditions by suggesting a tradition-based practice of sharing wisdom, while preserving the integrity of the teaching and respecting the identity of anyone with whom wisdom is shared.

Abigail Hastings, Lora Fitzgerald, and David Houston are orphans, two now in their late teens, having been taken as children to the Dearling Ranch, in Eastern Oregon, in different seasons, by attorney Mason Kile. When one of the kitchen help, a local farm girl, disappears, and the foreman watches Abby and Lora with hooded, menacing eyes, Abby decides she must take Lora and flee from the valley. They persuade David, the blacksmiths apprentice, to help them escape; his dream is to go to Montana, where his parents are buried, and build a home for himself. In 1880, in the midst of a cold spring rain and under the cover of darkness, the trio runs from the ranch, fleeing the evil of Dearling Valley in search of better lives. David slowly came to understand the very real danger that the valley held and was persuaded to take the two kitchen helpers to safety first Montana would have to wait. The three would run hard, and maybe, with Gods help, gain true freedom. Could long buried secrets catch and hold them captive or is there a way to win new lives.

In The Time's Discipline. Philip Berrigan and Elizabeth McAlister offer us a chronicle of their community in Baltimore. They show us that for their nonviolent community, resistance to the nuclear arms race is not merely a political endeavor, but most profoundly a spiritual endeavor, rooted in fidelity to the Gospel. Thus the reporting of Jonah House's first fifteen years is formed around the Beatitudes, eight points of blessing at the outset of Matthew's presentation of the Sermon on the Mount. Invariably for Phil & Liz and those who have been part of their work at Jonah house and related endeavors, that spirituality is not abstract, but rooted in community and resistance and thus very much of this world and in service to its highest good. Understanding that we live in a nuclear empire, they present us in these pages, their experiment in truth in its midst.
This book will appeal to parents who have felt frustrated, helpless, or angry when traditional parenting tools didn't work. The Time-In process is an overall approach that teaches children to be competent, to think, and to succeed using four tools-ask, act, attend, and amend. Parents can use Time-In when they want children to listen and think (ask), change behaviour (act), pay attention to the needs of others (attend), or to right a wrong they have done (amend).
God the Creator made a very unique and specialized realm in which we humans live. It is a realm of particles which cohere as what we call matter; it is also a realm of time, the flow of which he creates and causes to occur moment to moment! It is altogether different from the realm of eternity and non-matter that he occupies. All of this special creation displays both his wisdom and glory. Within it and within our time realm, he makes himself known—and especially so since our departure from him at the fall of man. Not only has the One known as Wisdom made this realm, but he has continued to invade it to call mankind back to himself. Indeed, he eventually invaded as Wisdom made Human to complete an astonishing work in which all may be included as his brand new creation!

When American sociologist and wellness expert Tanya Pergola first visited Tanzania and Maasailand, she became startlingly aware that she was in a place and with people who could teach her something profound. She sensed that lodged within the colorful and beautiful rituals and ceremonies of the indigenous Maasai people were gems of wisdom that could be harvested and shared as antidotes for our increasingly complex, stressful, and often enigmatic modern lives. Dr. Pergola undertook a ten-year apprenticeship with Maasai traditional healers, led by her guide Lekoko Ole Sululu, in exchange for implementing sustainable development projects in Tanzania. In "Time is Cows" she shares the mind-body-spirit medicine of the Maasai, the proud pastoral people of East Africa. In a voice that is at once crystal clear and spiritually alive--one that thousands around the world have already come to know in her talks and classes on wellness, yoga, and nature healing--her insight, inspiration, and empathy are present on every page as she shares her own knowledge and the wisdom of the Maasai compassionately and wholly. Enriched with photographs, stories and "suggested practice" tips, "Time is Cows" is a handbook to help you simplify your life as you uncover its profound meaning.
DescriptionThis book looks at culture being one of the greatest causes of ill health, and our affinity to it. Culture is a set pattern learnt by a group of people. If we look at Hitler and the Nazis, they had a culture based on a pattern, and that was to conquer the world. So did the Roman Empire. Culture is based on a set of rules that support an idea that is long dead. More people are breaking away from their ancestral routes. For instance most Asian cultures. Young women are now beginning to look outside their culture for lifetime partners, sometimes meeting the resistance of their families.However, there is some irony in this book. This book shows that the sane are insane with their animalistic behaviour. While Peter is struggling to break free from his ancestral routes, he thinks of himself as white as he was growing up, which spared him from all the tragedies that black men went through. He uses the white television heroes as his teachers. Eventually Peter breaks free from his ancestral routes to live his life.About the AuthorBorn in 1964, Smith suffered sexual and psychological abuse as a small child at the hands of his local church minister. Struggling to cope with the effects this had on him and being bombarded with religious and bullying abuse he developed schizophrenia at the age of 15. Smith has, despite all the odds, worked hard to regain control of his life by taking on board the advice of his counsellor. He has travelled and worked and his life is now taking an up turn. We are proud to be publishing his first two books and hope there are many more to come.
A guide for pastors, church leaders, and all who help African Americans in their search for a meaningful Christian lifestyle. Forming Christians--leading fallen and flawed human beings into the path of discipleship to a crucified and risen Lord--is one of the central, if not the central, tasks of all Christian churches. It is a difficult enough task anywhere, but for African Americans, beset by racial conflict, personal crises, generational separation, and other concerns, it is especially so. African American churches must work particularly hard to counter the messages their members receive from the dominant and often unfriendly culture. This book employs the biblical text and African tradition to draw on the idea of the search for wisdom as a potent way to help African Americans in their pursuit of genuine Christian discipleship. Wisdom in African American tradition is not simply knowledge; rather, it is those insights, attitudes, beliefs, behaviors,and practices that create and sustain a life of hope and that produce an inherent sense of the worth of one's self. If their members are to engage in the search for wisdom, African American churches must build an intentional ministry of faith formation. Wisdom can be gained, the authors argue, when African Americans listen to the black oral tradition with its proverbial sayings, revered Bible stories, songs, and narratives from the lives of exemplary individuals. The book offers several similar avenues for the search for wisdom, including helpful models of black males mentoring younger black males, as a remedy to the destructive effects that contemporary culture has on this segment of the African American community.

This book is about time and its powerful influence on our personal and collective daily life. It presents the most comprehensive and up-to-date overview of contemporary knowledge on temporal psychology inspired by Zimbardo's work on Time Perspective (TP). With contributions from renowned and promising researchers from all over the globe, and at the interface of social, personality, cognitive and clinical psychology, the handbook captures the breadth and depth of the field of psychological time. Time perspective, as the way people construe the past, the present and the future, is conceived and presented not only as one of the most influential dimensions in our psychological life leading to self-impairing behaviors, but also as a facet of our person that can be de-biased and supportive for well-being and happiness. Written in honor of Philip G. Zimbardo on his 80th birthday and in acknowledgement of his leading role in the field, the book contains illustrations of the countless studies and applications that his theory has stimulated, and captures the theoretical, methodological and practical pathways he opened by his prolific research.
In the modern era, solutions to many environmental problems appear to be beyond the reach of a dialogue based solely on argumentation, dialectics, and the presentation of 'evidence.' The purpose of this study is to construct a bridge between incommensurable ways of perceiving reality, a bridge that can facilitate dialogue across worldview boundaries on environmental issues. This book attempts to link ecology, philosophy, and theology through an exploration of a new model of intercultural dialogue. Case studies provide practical and theoretical applications, which lead to a deeper understanding of not only environmental guardianships but also the fundamental relationship between human beings and nature's being.
