Nirvana is. You are. Be enlightenment. Nirvana is not to be found in the fulfillment of endless desires, the analysis of profound thoughts, or even hours, days, or years of meditative contemplation. In fact, it is the very act of seeking to obtain happiness, peace, and enlightenment that keeps them out of reach. Nirvana in a Nutshell offers over 150 Zen meditations to help you discover what you might be doing (or not doing) in your life to sabotage your goal of reaching inner peace, your own personal paradise. Let go of the quest and become that which you truly seek and you will find your own Nirvana. Nirvana is the state of grace where there is no longer any physical suffering, mental anguish, or unanswered questions. Many assume that the only way to achieve that magical state is if they walk away from the world and enter "the spiritual path." But conflict is a part of life - any kind of life. If you allow your peace to be taken away from you by external occurrences or internal disharmony then you will never know contentment. Peace is an inner triumph. Nirvana is not known, because it has been propagated as the ultimate obtainment. It has been made a desire. But, as Siddhartha Guatama stated, "The cause of suffering is desire." Scott Shaw contends that people are looking for contentment in all the wrong places.

This volume represents the first book-length treatment in English of one of the greatest mystical writers in Christian history, Jan van Ruusbroec (1293-1381). A careful reading of the texts by the Flemish historian Paul Mommaers focuses on two delicate relationships: that between mysticism and religiosity and that between a mysticism of union in love and the more metaphysical mysticism of unity. Winding in and out of this presentation is a commentary by theologian of religions Jan Van Bragt, which attempts to place the problematic in a wider, interreligious context by contrasting the spiritual path of Buddhism with that of the Christian mystical way. The combined result is not only an original reading of the great Flemish love-mystic, but a groundbreaking attempt to view religious history through the dual lenses of one's own faith and that of the faith of others. Ruusbroec's approach is seen to challenge traditional ideas about differences between the Buddhist and Christian ways and to open new possibilities for further encounters at the level of mystical thought and practice.

Follow one woman’s journey from skepticism, misfortune and near death, to a state of Nirvana. Accompany her on a quest for truth and knowledge and discover what life is really about as you are brought out of the darkness and into the light of a new world. Be prepared to be challenged as you embark on the wildest ride in human history. We are now at a point where technology begins to merge with human development and creates a more sophisticated species. Along this journey, author D. Crawford, begins to understand that 2012 is only the beginning, as we are propelled forward in a rapid rate of evolution and scientific discoveries. This is where the mind and spirit will finally merge as one. We can now understand how we are demi-gods, and that we are the Universe, incarnate. Humans are intelligence, experiences and infinite information encased within physical form. We are perpetual motion and beings of light waves in a state of a solid. Step back and explore the big picture as a wondrous puzzle and Divine Plan become clear as we interlock the pieces of spirituality, neuroscience, psychology and quantum physics. After all, this is not just any story of Truth and enlightenment; it is your story as well. The book contains personal experiences and topics including: Karma, evolution, the String Theory, rising above ego to higher frequencies, and using the infinite power of the human brain.
