"¿Existe eso que se llama "Un minuto de Sabiduría"?" "Por supuesto que existe", replicó el Maestro. "Pero un minuto ¿no es demasiado breve?" "No. Es cincuenta y nueve segundos demasiado largo".... ... "El abrir los ojos puede llevar toda una vida. El ver es cuestión de un instante". Sólo lleva un minuto, aproximadamente, leer cada una de la anécdotas que aparecen en este libro. Probablemente, el lenguaje del Maestro pueda resultar misterioso, exasperante y hasta absurdo. Pero es que éste no es un libro fácil. No ha sido escrito para instruir, sino para despertar. Escondida en sus páginas (no en las palabras impresas, ni siquiera en los propios cuentos, sino en el espíritu, en su talante, en su atmósfera) hay un SABIDURIA que no puede expresarse en lenguaje humano. Mientras se lee la página impresa y se esfuerza un por penetrar el críptico lenguaje del Maestro, tal vez, sin darse uno cuenta, tropiece con la Enseñanza Silenciosa que se esconde en este libro y resulte uno despierto... y transformado. Si tiene uno la suerte de despertar de este modo, comprenderá por qué el mejor lenguaje es el lenguaje no hablado, la mejor acción es la que no se realiza y el mejor cambio es el no pretendido.

"Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred let me sow love, Where there is injury, pardon . . . For it is in giving that we receive, It is in pardoning that we are pardoned And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life". This famous prayer, traditionally attributed to Saint Francis, has traveled the world, winning hearts and inspiring minds with its simple and persuasive witness to the power of unconditional love. As Leonardo Boff shows in his moving reflections, this love not only brings each person the promise of eternal salvation, but also provides the basis for social peace, redeems the world, and constitutes the hidden meaning of the universe.

Spiritual Direction gives us the unique and unrivaled experience of having Henri Nouwen as our personal spiritual director, answering our questions about the spiritual life in his wise, comfortable, and engaging style. With Nouwen's guidance, we can reorient our lives and open the door to true spiritual transformation. Henri Nouwen, the world-renowned spiritual guide and counselor, understood the spiritual life as a journey of faith and transformation that is deepened by accountability, community, and relationships. Though he counseled many people during his lifetime, his principles of spiritual direction were never written down. Now two of his longtime students, Michael Christensen and Rebecca Laird, have taken his famous course in spiritual direction and supplemented it with his unpublished writings to create the definitive work on Nouwen's thoughts on the Christian life. Stories, readings, and thematically organized questions for reflection and guided journal writing provide an unparalleled resource for spiritual direction, both for individuals and for small groups.
Reveals techniques for achieving spiritual immortality through an in-depth exploration of Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching • Includes practices and meditations for living in harmony with the Tao (universal essence) and Te (kind action) • Reveals the integration of heavenly and human power in the mystic field within us • Presents Tao Huang's English translation of the Tao Te Ching from the original Chinese Mawangdui text unearthed in 1973 For over 2,500 years the words of the Tao Te Ching, the primary scripture of Laoism and Taoism, have been regarded as among the greatest treasures of the world. Lao-tzu, whose name means “the ancient child,” wrote these brief but essential verses that have both confounded and conferred blessings on humankind. Now Taoist masters Mantak Chia and Tao Huang guide readers through the origins of this philosophy, the meaning behind its 5,000 pictographs, and the way of living that generations have followed. While the text of the Tao Te Ching has been passed down in literary form for generations, the essence of the text can be understood only through heart awakening--a true integration of body and mind--made possible with the insights and exercises in this book. The authors analyze Lao-tzu's teachings, line by line, and offer meditations, interpretations, and practical illustrations that clarify the true meaning and purpose of this classic text.
By far the greatest of all the mystical texts, explaining the relationship between God and the soul, divine and human love; the inspiration for the greatest Christian poetry of Dante and St. John of the Cross, by the founder of the silent Trappist order of monks.
?Following the example of St. Ignatius, we believe that praying the Examen will lead to a better life. The 500-year-old daily practice of honest self-assessment and reflection is a founding principle of Ignatian spirituality. What we don’t know is if St. Ignatius ever felt like changing it up a bit. Jesuit speaker and author Mark Thibodeaux, SJ, is confident that St. Ignatius wouldn’t mind a little flexibility in his prayer. Join Thibodeaux as he guides you through new and unique versions of the Examen, totally flexible and adaptable to your life. In ten minutes, you can tailor your daily prayer practice to fit your personal and situational needs, further enhancing and deepening your meditation. Reimagining the Ignatian Examen—the only book of its kind—will lead you through a fresh and stimulating reflection on your past day, your present state of being, and your spiritual desires and needs for tomorrow.

To be unforgiving is harmful. The inability to come to terms with one’s anger or strife often can lead to stress disorders, mental health disorders, and relationship problems. Forgiveness is a personal decision. Forgiveness and Reconciliation focuses on individual experiences with forgiveness, aiming to create a theory of what forgiveness is and connect it to a clinical theory of how to promote forgiveness. Dr. Worthington creates an evidence-based approach that is applicable for individuals and relationships, and even for society. He also describes an evidence-based method of reconciliation - restoring trust in damaged relationships. Dr. Worthington hopes that this theory will inform scientific research and improve intervention strategies. Showing that forgiveness transforms personality, Worthington describes ways a clinician can promote (but not force) forgiveness of others and self. He provides research-based theory and applications and discusses the role of emotion and specific personality traits as related to forgiveness. Forgiveness and reconciliation might not be cures, but, as Worthington shows, they are tools for transforming both the self and the world.

Una vita nuova. Studio di Barbara Bozak. Questo libro e uno studio del testo ebraico di Ger 30-31 mediante l'utilizzo di tecniche di analisi poetica. Si presenta Ger 30-31 nel suo complesso letterario in cui ogni elemento contribuisce alla comunicazione di un unico messaggio: la promessa di un nuovo futuro, dono gratuito di Dio. This book is a study of the hebrew text of Jer 30-31 using techniques of poetic analysis and having as an underlying focus the question of exegetical method. It examines the text in terms of its diction, prosody, syntax and imagery with a view to understanding the unit in its historical and literary contexts, and presents Jer 30-31 as a literary whole in which every element works together to communicate a single message: the promise of a new future, gratuitous gift of god. The careful literary analysis of this poetic cycle demonstrates that while the concept of salvation is the essential focus of the little book of consolation (Jer 30-31), the ideas of suffering and punishment are also highly developed and found throughout the whole. The book concludes with a brief consideration of the extraordinary use of the feminine image in Jer 30-31 and offers some hypotheses for its presence. in its use of literary poetic analysis this work moves beyond the questions of diachronic studies and thus implies that synchronic reading, with its focus on the final text as the ultimate bearer of meaning, is a valid exegetical method.
