Book Summary by Rosemary Roberts
Americans are feeling outnumbered and threatened,
not so much by foreign terrorists but by their fellow Americans. An atmosphere
of faith-based paranoia permeates a portion of our cultural climate. Unlike
the Europeans, whose educations have included a thorough steeping in religious
studies, we do not -- cannot -- view religion objectively. Instead, we
clutch our Bibles to our bosoms and with varying degrees of emotional
fervor, proclaiming ourselves "a religious nation."
Interviews with Gregg Braden and Dr. Bruce Lipton
By Meryl Ann Butler
"Your thoughts are not contained in your
head - they are a part of the Quantum Field," Lipton continues. "When
playing through your nervous system, the thoughts generate a vibratory
field similar to that of a tuning fork. Thought vibrations interact and
entangle with harmonically-resonant structures in the Field. Simply, we
activate and bring into our lives the things that we think about the most."
By Alan Watts
An excerpt from his autobiography, In My Own Way
The power of something so apparently simple-and
so seemingly absurd-as mantra- and om-chanting is that it fosters a relaxed
concentration on pure sound, as distinct from words, ideas, and abstractions,
and thus brings attention to bear on reality itself.
