Spirituality is not about renouncing the material world. Rather it is realizing it and enjoying it from a different vantage point. Once you realize your true nature — you will be burning the torch of your life joyfully from both ends — spiritually and materially, enjoying the glitter and glow. Self-engineering is a process — a joyful journey within to realize who you really are. It is a personal inner revolution on the voyage to vibrant happiness that changes the way you are and the way you live the precious gift of life. The way an engineer simplifies things to make life comfortable — you will engineer your inner world to make life an easier, ecstatic, natural and blissful experience. Self-engineering is like going directly to the manufacturer, to the Creator. Instead of going to a small street mechanic to solve all your life issues.

“V” is for Victory! In Vedanta, and in spiritual life per se, this equates to achieving success in maintaining the intimate and singularly meaninglful contact with Brahman, the Source of all Existence — even and especially in the midst of our daily life and routine. This is effectively brought about, as the timeless rishi, Vasishtha, relates, through mastery of the life-force (pranajaya), control of the mind (manojaya), attenuation of desires (vasanakshaya), and neutralization of karmas (karma-nirodha) — all penultimate to acquiring that special ability to focus upon Divine Reality to the exclusion of all else (samadhana) until the consummate inner connection (samadhi) is well-established. For this, it is necessary for the two forces of human aspiration and Divine Dispensation to work harmoniously together. To facilitate this in the timeless and time-tested Vedic tradition, advised and available to all, the aspirant utilizes Vedanta (the eternal path) to activate Vichara (self-inquiry) to increase Viveka (discrimination) to deconstruct Vivarta (false superimposition) to remove Vikalpas (mental projections) and destroy Vasanas (root desires) in order to establish Vairagyam (detachment) to become a Vidvan (wisdom-knower) and attain Vijnana (supreme realization). Thus, “V” is for Victory! With such salubrious teachings well-considered, we offer our current helping of Wisdom-Nectar, mainly of or based on the Vedanta. In past issues we have highlighted many of the world’s religions, thereby rendering heartfelt service to the excellent principle of Universality and the harmony of all religions; a timely theme, considering the state of the world and its affairs. But we, as Westerners — videlicet, temporarily embodied souls appearing in a Western setting but espousing no personal or permanent location other than the all-pervasive Atman — feel an inborn affinity with the timeless and eternal Vedanta and feel it has an especial message suited for these times. We thereby and herein emphasize it in a series of intriguing and galvanizing articles designed to preserve yet percolate our precious consciousness, keeping it pure and pellucid.

The chapters of this book are nothing but mirrors for seeing your ''self'' from different angles. And though the journey we are about to embark on is an inner one, it will draw upon every aspect of your life. The only requirement asked of you is the willingness to honestly look at yourself in the most natural, intuitive manner. Remember, if we are seeking the root of ''self,'' what we are actually seeking is you. As you read through these pages, you will find that you know much more than you thought you did about some very deep subjects. The fact is, you already know how to find yourself; you have just gotten distracted and disoriented. Once refocused, you will realize that you not only have the ability to find yourself, you have the ability to free yourself. Whether you choose to do so or not is entirely up to you. But upon completion of your journey through these chapters, there will be no more confusion, no more lack of empowerment, and no more blaming others. You will know exactly what must be done. And should you choose to devote yourself to the ongoing journey of self-realization, you will develop a tremendous sense of respect for who you really are. It is only then that you will come to appreciate the full depth of meaning in the advice: ''This above all: to thine own self be true.'' ---- Introduction

Genesis: Your Journey Home is a groundbreaking book that goes far beyond the usual levels of biblical interpretations, and the ideas taught by religion that are difficult to understand. It bypasses word definition, root studies, historical explanations, and the ideas taught by religion that are difficult to understand but are important. This book examines the first twenty-five chapters, verse by verse, exploring and revealing the deeper metaphysical (beyond the literal) meaning of the text. Most people know that there are multiple levels of truth contained within the Bible, but until now none have brought forth the ultimate Truth hidden within the mundane, semi-historical writings. Rather than creating new doctrines, this book gently peels back ALL levels of dogmatic views to reveal the true core essence of God, humanity, and the nature of reality. Deep within the ancient biblical text is found the true story (record) of creation, the reason for our very existence, and the history of All That IS. This book is for those that are searching for authenticity, purpose, and a sense that truth lies somewhere beyond religious teachings but who are reluctant to discard the inherent value of scripture. This book brings comfort, personal empowerment, a new understanding of God, and fosters a renewed sense of responsibility for life. It is a book whose time has come at last, as it brings humanity to a deeper understanding of God and a realization of their ultimate purpose.

How would you like to experience your life? It’s an intriguing question, and yet we’ve been conditioned to believe our life visions and goals are often unattainable—until now. With The Possibility Principle, psychotherapist Mel Schwartz offers a revolutionary approach to living the life we choose. Though science has vastly expanded our knowledge, it has also led us to adopt a worldview where we see ourselves as insignificant specks living in a mechanical universe. Now, insights from quantum physics reveal that our universe is, in fact, a vibrantly intelligent reality and that each of us plays a vital role in shaping it. In this groundbreaking book, Schwartz shows us how to integrate this new quantum worldview into our everyday lives, allowing us to transcend our limitations and open to infinite possibilities. The Possibility Principle reveals how we can apply the three core tenets of quantum physics—inseparability, uncertainty, and potentiality—to live the life we choose, free from the wounds of our past and the constraints of our old beliefs. You can learn to: Develop a mastery of your thinking as you free yourself from the replication of old thought patterns Utilize the concept of wave collapse to realize that you are not imprisoned by your genes, brain chemistry, or past traumas Overcome anxiety and depression through a shift of mind Thrive in resilient relationships and develop powerful communication skills that foster empowerment and intimate connection Embrace uncertainty to ride the waves of personal change

He once said, “There is nothing more precious in our entire library than the Infinite Way Letters.” Readers can browse the rich table of contents and find a Letter that resonates with a current life experience, or can work through the Letters month by month to follow five years of the work of one of the great mystical teachers of our time.

The Self Illusion

How the Social Brain Creates Identity

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199969892

Page: 368

Most of us believe that we are unique and coherent individuals, but are we? The idea of a "self" has existed ever since humans began to live in groups and become sociable. Those who embrace the self as an individual in the West, or a member of the group in the East, feel fulfilled and purposeful. This experience seems incredibly real but a wealth of recent scientific evidence reveals that this notion of the independent, coherent self is an illusion - it is not what it seems. Reality as we perceive it is not something that objectively exists, but something that our brains construct from moment to moment, interpreting, summarizing, and substituting information along the way. Like a science fiction movie, we are living in a matrix that is our mind. In The Self Illusion, Dr. Bruce Hood reveals how the self emerges during childhood and how the architecture of the developing brain enables us to become social animals dependent on each other. He explains that self is the product of our relationships and interactions with others, and it exists only in our brains. The author argues, however, that though the self is an illusion, it is one that humans cannot live without. But things are changing as our technology develops and shapes society. The social bonds and relationships that used to take time and effort to form are now undergoing a revolution as we start to put our self online. Social networking activities such as blogging, Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter threaten to change the way we behave. Social networking is fast becoming socialization on steroids. The speed and ease at which we can form alliances and relationships is outstripping the same selection processes that shaped our self prior to the internet era. This book ventures into unchartered territory to explain how the idea of the self will never be the same again in the online social world.

You need to know what success and being successful means to you. Know your career goals. Where do you see yourself in five years, in ten years? I have seen many frustrated managers unable to accomplish their goals because they did not understand how to get what they wanted, what it took to get there, or even where to start. Some of these same managers were their own worst enemy. My purpose in writing this book is to cover some of the attitudes and behaviors you will need in order to help you be the success you want to be. These are all things I have learned over the years from my own struggles as well as from observing other successful, and unsuccessful, people. The topics covered in this book are meant to serve as an overview of the key things you will need to be aware of rather than a cookbook to go by. If you find something in these pages that is useful to you, something that you were unaware of, something that you need to improve on, or something that you need to start or stop doing, then I have succeeded in my purpose.

Locke on Personal Identity

Consciousness and Concernment

Author: Galen Strawson

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 140085184X

Category: Philosophy

Page: 280

View: 9592

John Locke's theory of personal identity underlies all modern discussion of the nature of persons and selves—yet it is widely thought to be wrong. In this book, Galen Strawson argues that in fact it is Locke’s critics who are wrong, and that the famous objections to his theory are invalid. Indeed, far from refuting Locke, they illustrate his fundamental point. Strawson argues that the root error is to take Locke’s use of the word "person" as merely a term for a standard persisting thing, like "human being." In actuality, Locke uses "person" primarily as a forensic or legal term geared specifically to questions about praise and blame, punishment and reward. This point is familiar to some philosophers, but its full consequences have not been worked out, partly because of a further error about what Locke means by the word "conscious." When Locke claims that your personal identity is a matter of the actions that you are conscious of, he means the actions that you experience as your own in some fundamental and immediate manner. Clearly and vigorously argued, this is an important contribution both to the history of philosophy and to the contemporary philosophy of personal identity.

The Mystery of Consciousness

It has long been one of the most fundamental problems of philosophy, and it is now, John Searle writes, "the most important problem in the biological sciences": What is consciousness? Is my inner awareness of myself something separate from my body? In what began as a series of essays in The New York Review of Books, John Searle evaluates the positions on consciousness of such well-known scientists and philosophers as Francis Crick, Gerald Edelman, Roger Penrose, Daniel Dennett, David Chalmers, and Israel Rosenfield. He challenges claims that the mind works like a computer, and that brain functions can be reproduced by computer programs. With a sharp eye for confusion and contradiction, he points out which avenues of current research are most likely to come up with a biological examination of how conscious states are caused by the brain. Only when we understand how the brain works will we solve the mystery of consciousness, and only then will we begin to understand issues ranging from artificial intelligence to our very nature as human beings.

This book is about the form, nature, and structure of the human self. The form, nature, and structure of being human is explored as a way for you to redirect to and re-own your true self. The states of being of your natural self are explored as a way to help you to retreat to and return to your true nature. The functions of self are explored as a way to help you to rediscover and reinforce your original self in action, awareness, and experience. This book provides you with knowledge and directions for rediscovering and being your natural self. You can discover and understand what real self is and what real self is not. You can discover how to focus on states of being that promote your authentic self. Read and re-read this book to discover how to recognize and redirect your awareness and identity to your natural child-self. Learn to encourage original self states of being rather than ego states of being. Become aware of how to avoid the blocks and habits that work against awareness of your real self. Know what environments and conditioning inhibit or deny your true self so that you can uproot, switch from, and replace them. Make the right space in your life for authentic self, and authentic self will be revealed for you and rediscovered by you. Self is not something that can be found, because self is not any thing. If you seek what is not lost, then it becomes lost.
