<p>While in grad school in the early 1990s, Chris Niebauer began to notice striking parallels between the latest discoveries in psychology, neuroscience, and the teachings of Buddhism, Taoism, and other schools of Eastern thought. When he presented his findings to a professor, his ideas were quickly dismissed as “pure coincidence, nothing more.” </p><p>Fast-forward 20 years later and Niebauer is a PhD and a tenured professor, and the Buddhist-neuroscience connection he found as a student is practically its own genre in the bookstore. But according to Niebauer, we are just beginning to understand the link between Eastern philosophy and the latest findings in psychology and neuroscience and what these assimilated ideas mean for the human experience. </p><p>In this groundbreaking book, Niebauer writes that the latest research in neuropsychology is now confirming a fundamental tenet of Buddhism, what is called Anatta, or the doctrine of “no self.” Niebauer writes that our sense of self, or what we commonly refer to as the ego, is an illusion created entirely by the left side of the brain. Niebauer is quick to point out that this doesn't mean that the self doesn't exist but rather that it does so in the same way that a mirage in the middle of the desert exists, as a thought rather than a thing. His conclusions have significant ramifications for much of modern psychological modalities, which he says are spending much of their time trying to fix something that isn’t there. </p><p>What makes this book unique is that Niebauer offers a series of exercises to allow the reader to experience this truth for him- or herself, as well as additional tools and practices to use after reading the book, all of which are designed to change the way we experience the world—a way that is based on being rather than thinking.</p>

Beth Praed's first book was the number one book on multiple sclerosis at Amazon for six years. She credits God for having given her this book. The story about her dream where she meets a "man-in-a-brown-robe" was published by Guideposts' Magazine (http://www.guideposts.org/inspiration/mysterious-ways/miracle-words). <br /><br />She also states that she saw the brown-robed man a second time when he told her to write a book on domestic violence and sell it for "practically nothing". Hence, her explanation for why a best-selling author is selling a book for such a small amount. <br /><br />Praed's third book on domestic violence was developed with the following two goals in mind: 1) to help women prepare an escape plan that will allow them to successfully escape their abusers, and 2) to give abused women the tools to completely help them recover.<br /><br />A few of the book's helpful chapters include: <br />• "A List of Possible Abusive Behaviors", <br />• "Surviving Severe Abuse", <br />• "Protecting Yourself Is Part of the Healing Process", <br />• "Should I Leave or Should I Stay",<br />• And "Techniques to Speed You on the Road to Recovery". <br /> Also included is discussion of a current hot topic in the courts, "Parental Alienation Syndrome—How Your Abuser Might Try to Use It Against You".<br /><br />According to Praed, "No one deserves to be treated in the ways that you have been treated.  You may think that you are the only one who has gone through these things.  But, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  There is a way out.  You will be free and this book will help you get there."<br /><br />Donovan's Bookshelf Review: The value of Domestic Violence: My Freedom from Abuse's approach lies in its ability to provide a succinct synthesis of facts in a form that's easy to understand. There are also specific chapters packed with details that aren't readily found elsewhere, such as 'Protecting Your Children', 'Going to Court' and 'A Note About Child Protective Services'. These, in particular, are often sticking points that survivors need to understand in order to make the best possible decisions about their future. This hard-hitting handbook offers tough questions, inspiring possibilities, and plenty of concrete insights on the entire process, from recognizing abuse to dealing with the aftermath of freedom.<br /><br />

Confessions of the Broken: A Codependent Rock Chick’s Journey from Hopelessness to Healing is the companion book to Heidi’s original blues/rock/gospel album, Confessions of the Broken. The book stands alone as a powerful, authentic glimpse into the journey of recovery from codependency. This ebook also invites you into a multimedia experience: you can listen to every song on the album and hear Heidi share this message live, in a full-length storyteller event. Clickable links to these free resources are included in the book for your convenience. <br /><br />Music has a way of reaching places in our hearts where words alone often fail. Confessions of the Broken soulfully marries music with a powerful message that will fill your heart with hope in a way that is nothing short of supernatural.<br /><br />A note from the author:<br />“A few years ago, I got to a place where so many aspects of my life were no longer working for me. I was depressed, hopeless, and as I looked around at the carnage of my life, I saw so many broken relationships; so many of my dreams were in shambles. I realized there must be a common denominator in all of this brokenness. And there was. It was me. This realization was one of God’s greatest gifts to me: the gift of reality that kicked open the doorway to healing from the awful soul-sickness of codependency. These songs came to me as I walked through the darkness into the light of recovery. Although I’m so proud of how these rockin’, soulful tunes turned out, and I do hope you enjoy them, I realized that the higher purpose of this project is to share the message of hope within the music. This book does just that. If you are discouraged or feeling stuck, please know that you are not alone. This project is for you. I hope you receive the gift of knowing you are never alone and that healing is available to you.” <br />~Heidi

<p>Man has only one mind, but he has two distinct phases or functions of the one mind. Each phase is characterized by its own phenomena, which is peculiar to itself. Each of these minds is capable of independent action as well as synchronous action. We call one the objective mind because it deals with external things, and the other is the subjective mind. The subjective mind is amenable and controlled by suggestion of the objective or conscious mind. The objective mind takes cognizance of the objective world.<br /><br />In this work Dr. Joseph Murphy expands on his theory that the latent powers inherent in our subconscious can improve our lives. Dr. Murphy provides specific steps to nourish your conscious mind with the tools and attitudes that will open up the infinite power of your subconscious mind. Whether you wish to conquer a bad habit, be more successful, obtain harmony in your family, or achieve goals that have thus far been unattainable, you will be given guidelines to put you on the right path.</p><p><strong>About the Author:</strong><br /><br />Joseph Murphy was born in Ireland, the son of a private boy's school headmaster and raised a Roman Catholic. He studied for the priesthood and joined the Jesuits. In his twenties, an experience with healing prayer led him to leave the Jesuits and move to the United States, where he became a pharmacist in New York (having a degree in chemistry by that time). Here he attended the Church of the Healing Christ (part of the Church of Divine Science), where Emmet Fox had become minister in 1931.<br /><br />In the mid 1940s, he moved to Los Angeles, where he met Religious Science founder Ernest Holmes, and was ordained into Religious Science by Holmes in 1946, thereafter teaching at the Institute of Religious Science. A meeting with Divine Science Association president Erwin Gregg led to him being reordained into Divine Science, and he became the minister of the Los Angeles Divine Science Church in 1949, which he built into one of the largest New Thought congregations in the country. In the next decade, Murphy married, earned a PhD in psychology from the University of Southern California and started writing. After his first wife died in 1976, he remarried to a fellow Divine Science minister who was his longstanding secretary. He died in 1981.</p><p><strong>CONTENTS:</strong><br /><br /><strong>Chapter 1</strong> : How Your Own Mind Works<br /><br /><strong>Chapter 2</strong> : The Subconscious Mind and Health<br /><br /><strong>Chapter 3</strong> : The Subconscious Mind and Alcoholism<br /><br /><strong>Chapter 4</strong> : The Subconscious Mind and Wealth<br /><br /><strong>Chapter 5</strong> : How to Apply the Subconscious Mind to Marital Problems<br /><br /><strong>Chapter 6</strong> : The Subconscious Mind and Guidance<br /><br /><strong>Chapter 7</strong> : Overcoming Fear through the Subconscious Mind</p><p>Miracles of Your Mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy, ebook, 9788180320743</p>

<p>He was my religious teacher. I should have been able to trust him. But he made me do unspeakable things…</p><p>At seven years old, Nabila Sharma began her lessons at the mosque as every good Muslim girl does. But from the minute she looked up at her Imam, the man who held her spiritual future in his hands, she knew something was wrong.</p><p>Over the next five years Nabila’s life became unbearable. While she was behind the doors of the mosque, the most sacred of places, the Imam brutally molested her on the slightest whim. Each day he would make her perform unspeakable acts, physically and mentally torturing her into compliance, to fulfil his perverse desires.</p><p>Nothing would stop him; no plea would make him relent. But he was a respected member of the community, trusted by everyone; if Nabila cried for help she would risk the honour of her family, an unthinkable act. There was nowhere she could turn, no one she could talk to. As a young Muslim girl, Nabila was powerless.</p><p>Brutal is the shocking, revelatory and heart-rending account of one girl’s plight in a society where honour and shame are a matter of life and death. It is a tale of innocence lost and a life shattered, but above all it is a tale of survival, of a young girl who found love and hope in the darkest of places.</p>

Søren Kierkegaard was a Danish philosopher, theologian, poet, social critic and religious author who is widely considered to be the first existentialist philosopher. He wrote critical texts on organized religion, Christendom, morality, ethics, psychology, and the philosophy of religion, displaying a fondness for metaphor, irony and parables. Much of his philosophical work deals with the issues of how one lives as a "single individual", giving priority to concrete human reality over abstract thinking and highlighting the importance of personal choice and commitment.<br /><br />The Soren Kierkegaard Collection features:<br /><br />Fear and Trembling<br />Philosophical Fragments<br />Purity of Heart Is to Will One Thing<br />and<br />The Sickness Unto Death

<b>Discover the Joy of Not Thinking...</b><br /><br />When I was sixteen, I had a mental breakdown. It happened while I was on vacation in the Caribbean with my family. I’d been reading an old Zen book, and it did me in. I’d experienced some strange mental states before, but this was different. As I read this book, death moved to the foreground of all my thoughts—and then stayed there. I found myself in a tropical paradise, terrified. Living seemed too cruel to carry on with. Buddha had said all life was suffering and all that meant was that everything was hopeless. There was no way out. Escape was impossible. When you looked at things soberly, it was obvious. Life, inevitably, was really just suffering and death.<br /><br />I kept this anxiety to myself as best I could. There was nothing to say anyway. No one could help. I was helpless, mortified, but aware that I was unable to do anything about it. The stress began to wear on my body. It felt worse and worse. I would have killed myself right there if death didn’t scare me even more than life. I reasoned if I killed myself at least this particular suffering would be over.<br /><br />These feelings peaked and then went on, and on, and on. At some point, I took a drive with my family to a beach on the other side of the island. It was bad. My insides felt as if they were being torn out. I didn’t understand what was happening. I felt like vomiting but couldn’t. Finally, we arrived at the beach. I sat under a tree, in the shade, trying to act sane.<br /><br />And then I thought I died.<br /><br />Something happened and then nothing. And then there was something again. I don’t know. Was I dead? I looked around and realized I wasn’t. I was on the beach, under a tree. But there was no “I.” Everything was different. <i>Everything had dropped off.</i> Where was “I”? I didn’t exist. What was happening? What was this? It was indescribable. You couldn’t describe this. Any description was pointless. Everything was perfect just as it was, but at the same time, it wasn’t that. Because there was no everything. There was nothing at all. There was no need to describe anything ever again because there was nothing. Words and description were meaningless. Nothing was real. Nothing mattered!<br /><br />And this was, undoubtedly, the best news possible. The greatest realization I could wish to have. Yet that couldn’t begin to explain how good this was. It was way beyond any conception I could come up with. Everything, and everybody, was saved. That was clear. Everything was fine—now and forever. Nothing needed to be done, ever. The whole thing—life, death, reality, individuality, good, bad, right, wrong—was a lie. An illusion. A sham. Everything just <i>was</i>—just <i>is</i>.<br /><br />And this was perfection, beyond any belief, rationalization or label I could ever put on it. It made no sense, and it was perfect. It was before time itself. It transcended thought, was past my comprehension. Thought created all this suffering—<i>and thought itself was not real</i>. Without thought, all was grace—always. It was all blissfully and blatantly simple, yet totally illogical. I sat on that beach, thunderstruck. It was laughable. Whatever you thought, it didn’t matter. Thought had nothing to do with anything <i>real</i>. Everything was always perfect, no matter what you thought…
