The Sanctum by Pamela King Cable (Firefly Southern Fiction) 4.8 Stars (109 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Fleeing a horrendous life, Neeley discovers the true meaning of family, forgiveness, and love in a wolf sanctuary, which becomes a central metaphor for the difficult journey we all must undertake to find our way home. Thoroughly enjoyable book!" ~ Cassandra King Conroy (Pat's wife) - Bestselling author of Moonrise, The Same Sweet Girls, and The Sunday Wife" This inspirational tale thrills with a tight plot, lyrical scene descriptions, and complex characters.

The Varieties of Religious Experience by William James (Philosophical Library/Open Road) 3.3 Stars (28 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Harvard philosopher William James's compiled lectures on religion, considered to be among the most brilliant studies of mankind's relation to the divine William James's Varieties of Religious Experience brings together twenty lectures on the nature of religion, delivered at the University of Edinburgh between 1901 and 1902. Renowned at the time for their practical and even-handed approach to the human experience of religion, the lectures form a sympathetic and analytical portrait not of the church, but of the personalized experiences of religious life. James examines the words of writers and philosophers from Immanuel Kant to Plato to Ralph Waldo Emerson to Marcus Aurelius in his investigations of faith, the soul, and systems of belief. Praised by philosopher Charles Pierce for its "penetration into the hearts of people" and by the New York Times for its ability to stir the sympathies of readers, The Varieties of Religious Experience is a lucid and thought-provoking examination of man's encounters with God. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Exploring the Mind: Discovering Humps and How they shape us by Gary W. Cross Price verified 2 hours ago

The mind is perhaps the most complex thing in the universe. Use it well and we can be wise, and help make a good life for our self and those around us. Use it poorly and... Yet we spend little time, if any, trying to understand our mind and how to better use it. In this book, we explore the mind, so that we may better understand it, and thus better use it. Explorations are offered throughout the book to help you, the reader, to explore the mind yourself. When you explore something yourself (rather than just read the results of others' explorations) your understanding will be much deeper, you will better remember what has been explored, and most importantly, you will be more likely to utilize the knowledge that you gain - in this case, to better use your mind and to have a better life. In the initial explorations, you will discover what features you have in your mind. Importantly, we are not exploring the physical features of our brains (such as neurons, the cortex, thalamus, amygdala... ). In this book, we restrict our explorations to those features in our minds that we can personally explore, such as our thoughts, memories and feelings. Next you will discover humps - what I consider to be the most important features of the mind. We all have humps, many of them. Mostly we are unaware of them, and unaware of what enormous effects they have on us. Understand the characteristics of humps, and you understand the characteristics of your mind! Next you will discover why it is important to know about your humps. You discover that your humps shape what you think, feel, desire, dislike, look at, expectations, say and do. Finally, you explore other humps and how they shape your humps. Other humps include the humps of other people, the humps in your cultures and the humps (or patterns) in the world around you. You will discover how these other humps shape your own humps, and thus play a large part in shaping your mind and your reality. This book is part of the series ...

Exploring a Good Life with Humps in Mind by Gary W. Cross Price verified 2 hours ago

We all seek a good life for ourselves, but even more so, for our children and grandchildren. But what is a good life? What stops us from having a good life? And how can we achieve a good life, or at least a better life? In this book, we use our knowledge of the mind, in particular our knowledge about humps, to help us to better understand what a good life is, and how to better achieve a good life (or at least have a better life). Importantly, this book won't (and can't) tell you what your specific directions to a good life are. However, this book does offer help for you to determine your own specific directions (which depends on your specific humps and the specific humps of those around you). If we don't know and follow our own directions, then we are following others' directions. This book is part of the series 'With Humps in Mind'. The basic premise of this series is that the better we understand our own mind, the better we will use our mind, the wiser we will be, and the better life we, and those around us, will have. Other books in the series include: 'Exploring the Mind - Discovering Humps and How they shape us' 'Exploring Wisdom with Humps in Mind' 'The Way of Sophia with Humps in Mind'
