Distinguished author and television executive Marita Golden writes movingly about her life -- first as a black activist in the sixties in her hometown Washington, D.C., then as a journalism student in New York. In those turbulent years, she gained a profound understanding of what it means to be black in America. While studying in America, she met Femi, an African man. They fell in love and she journeyed to Nigeria to become his wife. In Africa, plunged into a culture so very different from her own, but one she felt she should understand, Marita Golden learned about both her own new sprawling Nigerian family and Nigeria's large American community. But Femi, once her strength, began to insist she fit herself into the strict mold of his society and assume the submissive role of a Nigerian wife. In her new, strange surroundings, Marita Golden discovered that home is not simply a destination, but rather something you must carry always inside you. "A marvelous journey . . . powerful imagery . . . distinctly drawn characters come alive, events pulsate with energy." -- The Washington Post Book World From the Paperback edition.

A History of the Heart

The heart not only drives our physical life, but throughout human history it has also been viewed as the seat of our deepest emotions. It has figured hugely – if metaphorically – in nearly every aspect of human civilization, and as the unending subject of literature, music and art. Yet until now there has not been a study of this paramount icon of love. Ole M. Høystad ably fills this enormous gap with a compelling investigation into this epicentre of grief, joy and power. Firmly positioning the heart at the metaphorical and literal centre of human culture and history, Høystad combs through religions and philosophies from the beginning of civilization to explore such disparate historical points as the Aztecs' ritual of removing the still-beating heart from a living sacrificial victim and offering it to the gods; homosexuality and the heart in Greek antiquity; European attempts to employ alchemy in service of the mysteries of love; and the connections between the heart and wisdom in Sufism. Høystad charts how the heart has signified our essential desires, whether for love and passion in the medieval excesses of troubadour poetry and chivalric idealism, the body-soul dualism propounded by the Enlightenment, or even the modern notions of individualism expressed in the works of thinkers such as Nietzsche and Foucault. A provocative examination of the deepest vaults of our souls and the efforts of the many lonely hunters who have tried to unlock its secrets, A History of the Heartsubverts the clichés to reveal a symbol of our fundamental humanity whose beats can be felt in every aspect of our lives.

James Allen, author of the bestselling As a Man Thinketh-one of the most popular writers in the fields of inspiration at the turn of the 20th century-devoted himself to helping others find inner peace and enlightenment. His prescriptions were often as practical as they were spiritual, empowering the individual by emphasizing personal responsibility. Out From the Heart continues that tradition, with essays on The Nature and Power of Mind, Formation of Habit, and Doing and Knowing, among others. Before starting down the path of truth and virtue, Allen cautions, see yourself as you are. Great discipline and patience will be required, but the result will be "the Life Beautiful."British author and pop philosopher JAMES ALLEN (1864-1912) retired from the business world to pursue a life of writing and contemplation. He authored many books about the power of thought including The Way of Peace, The Mastery of Destiny, and Entering the Kingdom.

How Unconventional Wisdom Unleashes the Power of Modern Medicine

Author: Mehmet C. Oz M.D.,Ron Arias

Publisher: Penguin

Category: Health & Fitness

Page: 224

Dr. Mehmet Oz, celebrated heart surgeon and co-founder of the Complementary Care Center at New York's Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital, is spearheading the health-care revolution that is yielding powerful new healing tools that will forever change the way we think of medicine. In this ground-breaking book, he describes his pioneering work--combining cutting-edge Western medicine with such Eastern techniques as acupuncture and chi-gong, as well as such controversial therapies as hypnosis, music, massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, and energy healing. The inspiring and affecting stories of his patients are the heart of this book--from the extraordinary discipline of Frank Torre, who used his professional sports training to "psych" himself into healing after heart transplant surgery, to the "impossible" recovery of blues great Johnny Copeland, who was roused from a seemingly impenetrable coma through the force of his own music. In recounting his patients' experiences, Dr. Oz forges a blueprint for the radical new medicine of the next millennium--drawing on the best from Eastern and Western therapies and empowering patients to become partners with doctors in promoting their own recovery.

Death and reincarnation are the two most mysterious of the spiritual mysteries. It is easy to reject the truth behind both of them. After all, when a person dies they stop breathing. The big question becomes: What happens at death? What is its mystery? Does a person cease to exist after their last breath has been taken? Fear of death is what causes us to worship death. We worship death when we put death on a pedestal and pay for expensive funerals, dress the lifeless body in finery, lay the lifeless body in a satin lined casket made of fine wood, lower the casket into the ground and identify the location with an expensive gravestone. Then we walk away, to wait for the event to happen to us. It is easy to believe that we do not live after death, regardless of all that Holy Script teaches, regardless of all that spiritual teachers have taught since the beginning of time. When we see a loved one take their last breath, we witness a fact. There is no hidden meaning. The loved one is gone. We are left with emptiness and, sometimes, unbearable sorrow. There are those who believe only what they can see. Death is the end of life. No amount of reasoning can convince them otherwise.

We all share the experience of carrying with us the one question that has always seemingly stood in the way of the next step in our personal development, the development of our spiritual practice, or our understanding of ourselves. Answers from the Heartcollects 50 of these most important and heartfelt questions posed to Thich Nhat Hanh by participants in his retreats and from his students, and offers his personal, heartfelt, and often surprising answers. These exchanges offer an accessible way into Buddhist teachings and often mix practical immediately applicable suggestions with ideas for further study and contemplation. The conversations also provide a lively glimpse into the connection between students and their teacher. Answers from the Heart's six thematic sections -- Daily Life, Living and Dying, Engaged Buddhism, Mindfulness Practice, Family and Relationships, and Children's Questions, make the book easily accessible for those new to Buddhism as well as for more experienced practitioners. Thich Nhat Hanh's answers condense Buddhist wisdom of 2500 years into individual answers that shine with diamond-like clarity and summarize Thich Nhat Hanh's own insight based on his lifetime of practice.

A collection of poems. Like the facets of a diamond. Each time you read them, a new insight is gained. You soon discover that they are much deeper than they appear. Sometimes the reader is surprised, if not amazed, at the direction a poem may lead them. How does a sea gull inspire a Black man; or a child learning to walk tell us about the profound simplicity of God; or a boy, innocently dribbling his basketball an indication of the universality of people everywhere? These poems have a biblical character about them and are not just to be read, but to be a source of inspiration. Yet the stories they tell are real, and everyone who reads them will be able to identify with the incident or description as real to them.

A DARK CENTURY FOR SUB SAHARA AFRICA Is the analysis of internal factors influencing foreign direct investment (FDI) in Nigeria, thus sub Sahara Africa in the broader context. Its purpose is to determine the internal factors: market size, political instability, corruption, natural resources and business climate influencing foreign direct investment.

The text is in six chapters. The first chapter examines the subtle truth, thus foreign direct investment flow to sub Sahara Africa. The second chapter explores some foreign direct investment foundation theories and recent scholarly studies on internal factors influencing FDI. The third chapter analyzes the internal factors influencing foreign direct investment within the context of the Nigerian economy.
