Here, in the spirit of Bruce Feiler's beloved bestseller Walking the Bible, is a portrait of the Holy Land as a physical embodiment of faith. Dramatically conjuring the beauty of Israel's countryside, In the Steps of the Master also evokes the all-consuming passions and deep-rooted mysteries of Jerusalem—and while much has changed, as Morton says, the essential nature of the sites he visits has not.
From the travel writer whom Jan Morris has called "the much-loved master of the genre, often imitated but never matched." H. V. Morton peerlessly evokes the sights, the splendors, and the drama of history for tourists and armchair travelers alike.
IN THE STEPS OF THE MASTER: Are you able to discriminate the real from the unreal in the mass of occult TEACHINGS? Dr. Douglas M. Baker, a worldwide acknowledged teacher of Esoteric Science and Metaphysics is giving you here the keys and detailed instructions to success on your journey. AWAKE,... AWAKE TO DREAMS NO MORE! But let me warn you, that once you start this journey, there is no turning back. This guide will take you there, but do not reckon on coming back. Once you have had a taste of the inner worlds, nothing in you objective world is ever the same. A consciousness expanded can never return to its original size! Man is asleep, but when he awakens, he must tread a razor-edged path. The path outlined in the major esoteric traditions is one that leads to a higher experience, to a higher state of being. All esoteric disciplines from alchemy to yoga are systems that are designed to bring about biological changes in the brain and nervous system, changes which are essential for the metamorphosis of consciousness. This book and other volumes written by Dr. Baker will take you on your personal journey without any detours. In The Secret Doctrine, Madame Blavatsky tells us that we are given in our lives opportunities to acquire enough of the right sort of information to take us to perfection, but we have not within our personality equipment the power to synthesise the knowledge we have gained. This is indeed true. There is no lack of teachings. Our library shelves are stacked with books, read and unread, our Halls of Learning bulge with enough knowledge to make Masters of us all, yet that wisdom, the deposit of the ages, given out by the initiates and Master lies practically ignored. Very few, only a handful in each country, are prepared to take the Secret Path to self-mastery. Only the Few will search deeper than that narrow margin or surface area of wisdom which merely brings comfort to some thwarted aspect of the personality. In the Bible, Jacob's Ladder is the stairway to heaven, the five initiations which you must undergo, and in yoga we speak of building the Antahkarana - the rainbow bridge to the higher worlds. This, then, is the goal - this is the journey upon which you are about to embark. As Life itself is unending, so too is this a journey without an end, and just as there is no end to life, there is no need to think of the end to this journey. Life is a flow of becoming, and so the journey is the process of becoming.
"Following the Master" presents a comprehensive biblical theology of discipleship. Michael Wilkins compares other forms of master-disciple relationships in existence in the ancient Judaism and Greco-Roman world, traces Jesus' steps as he called and developed disciples, and then tracks the early church from its earliest days throughout the Mediterranean world as it followed Jesus' command to make disciples.
Tony Robbins turns to the topic that vexes us all: How to secure financial freedom for ourselves and for our families. “If there were a Pulitzer Prize for investment books, this one would win, hands down” (Forbes). Tony Robbins is one of the most revered writers and thinkers of our time. People from all over the world—from the disadvantaged to the well-heeled, from twenty-somethings to retirees—credit him for giving them the inspiration and the tools for transforming their lives. From diet and fitness, to business and leadership, to relationships and self-respect, Tony Robbins’s books have changed people in profound and lasting ways. Now, for the first time, he has assembled an invaluable “distillation of just about every good personal finance idea of the last forty years” (The New York Times). Based on extensive research and interviews with some of the most legendary investors at work today (John Bogle, Warren Buffett, Paul Tudor Jones, Ray Dalio, Carl Icahn, and many others), Tony Robbins has created a 7-step blueprint for securing financial freedom. With advice about taking control of your financial decisions, to setting up a savings and investing plan, to destroying myths about what it takes to save and invest, to setting up a “lifetime income plan,” the book brims with advice and practices for making the financial game not only winnable—but providing financial freedom for the rest of your life. “Put MONEY on your short list of new books to read…It’s that good” (Marketwatch.com).
Before someone tries to learn how to doodle he or she needs to understand what doodling actually is. The word doodle comes from German, and referred to a person who was a fool, or who was simple in some way. The modern meaning of the word, referring to small drawings done idly while one thinks, came about in the 1930s and might be connected to the word dawdle for someone who's wasting time. All of the history aside though, a doodle is nothing more than an unfocused or unconscious drawing, typically made while one's attention is supposed to be focused elsewhere. This is why doodles often show up in the margins of notebooks or on sticky notes at work; people who are tethered in place and stuck listening to a phone call, lecture, etc. will pick up a pen and begin to make small, unfocused drawings. These are doodles. How to Doodle There's no right or wrong way to doodle, much as there's no right or wrong way to draw in the first place. Doodlers can use the margins of a notebook or a pad of sticky note reminders just as easily as they can use a pristine white sketchbook. A doodler can use a number 2 pencil, a ballpoint pen, or really any other drawing implement that he or she desires. As long as you have a medium, it's possible to doodle. When it comes time to start doodling it's important to let your mind wander and to focus on any creative idea it comes across. Perhaps you see a large letter A on your letterhead, and decide to draw vines encircling it like something out of an old book of Grimm's Fairy Tales. Maybe you decide to add roses to the vines, turning the A into a fully-fledged topiary. Perhaps you decide to put a castle on top of the pinnacle of the A. Maybe you draw the vines hanging down and swinging in an unseen breeze. Grab the book now to know more!
