Universal Man, Abd-al-Karim al-Jili
1 Abd-al-Karim al-Jili Universal Man
UK Beshara Publications 1995 0904975150 / 9780904975154 Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
75 pages. Abd al-Karim al-Jili, or Abdul Karim Jili was a Muslim sufi saint and mystic who was born in 1366 at Jil in Baghdad. He is famous in Muslim mysticism as the author of this book - "Universal Man". He travelled in India; lived for a time in Yemen, and died in 1403, at the age of 38. He produced more than twenty books. of which Universal Man (al-insan al-kamil) is the most celebrated. His teaching follows that of Muhyiddin ibn 'Arabi (‘the Greatest Sheikh'), of which it can be regarded as a systematic exposition. Universal Man is Man the Macrocosm, the complete image and manifested consciousness of God, exempli?ed and expressed in the lives of saintly individuals. ]ili's account therefore takes the form of a series of chapters on the appearances of Absolute Reality as Essence, Names, Qualities and Divinity. These appearances correspond to contemplative states encountered by the mystic on the path of Union, which are discussed more particularly in the later chapters. Jili's exposition is incisive and illuminating; his intention entirely practical. He writes: ‘I will mention of all that only that which happened to me on my own journey to God; moreover I recount nothing in this book, neither of myself nor of another, without my having tested it at the time when I travelled in God by the path of intuition and direct vision’. Titus Burckhardt has provided an extensive and helpful introduction to Jili's work, and commentary on the text.

UK Rider 1978 0091347319 / 9780091347314 Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
159 pages. "The most impressive fact in man's spiritual, intellectual, and poetic experience has always been ... the universal prevalence of those astonishing moments of insight which Richard Bucke called 'cosmic consciousness'" (in "This is it" first sentence). This book offers six essays, written between 1956 and 1960 which deal with the relationship between mystical experience and everyday life. The author claims that we need to disentangle ourselves from habits of speech and thought which make it impossible to see that everyday experience is the real thing. The title essay on cosmic consciousness includes the author's account of his own experiences in the inner realm. 'Instinct, Intelligence and Anxiety' is a study of the paradoxes of self - consciousness; Spirituality and Sensuality' presents a lively debate on the false opposition of spirit and matter; and 'The New Alchemy' gives a balanced account of the states of consciousness akin to spiritual experience. This collection also includes the text of the.author's celebrated pamphlet 'Beat Zen, Square Zen and Zen.'

USA Ave Maria Pr 1993 0877935009 / 9780877935001 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
143 pages. Father William Barry believes that God wants an intimate relationship with each one of us - and that the deepest desire of our own hearts is to have an intimate relationship with God. Yet while we pursue this desire and long for its satisfaction, we also resist it - which can lead to a painful stagnancy. How can we move forward? In this book, Fr. Barry serves as our spiritual director, leading us on a series of brief "retreats" to help us understand the foundations of our relationship with God, what threatens it, and how we can continuously move forward into a closer and more meaningful relationship with God. In his warm, conversational style, Barry offers meditations, poses questions, and gently encourages us to respond to God's immeasurable love by following what is truly in each of our hearts - a longing to love him in return.

He and I - Spiritual Journey of a Mystic, Bossis, Gabrielle
6 Bossis, Gabrielle He and I - Spiritual Journey of a Mystic
Mumbai St. Pauls Publications 2009 8171091547 / 9788171091546 Soft Cover Good 12mo 
351 pages. Here is a book for all ages and all degrees of culture. It is written in "the language of the little ones", yet the profound depths of meaning defy even the mind of the savant. The great historian Daniel Rops described it as "an astonishing and beautiful story" and placed it among "the most authentic masterpieces of spiritual literature". "He and I" is the story of God and Gabrielle - Gabrielle Bossis - a French woman, born in 1874, who has given us a document that is not only timely but timeless, for it reaches ahead into the future - our future - "the new age of enlightenment" that has already dawned. Gabrielle Bossis was the very antithesis of the classical saint and mystic so often presented to us. She travelled widely, was wealthy and enjoyed exuberant health until the illness that carried her away in 1950. The writer of the short biographical sketch of her in "He and I" summarized her gift to us all, young and old. For her testament she left us "the peaceable record of Heaven". Heaven ... not for tomorrow in some far off Elysian field, but an eternal NOW, here as hereafter, by our atonement with Him in the Christ consciousness.

200 pages including b/w illustrations and endnotes. Christine Bryden was a top civil servant and single mother of three children when she was diagnosed with dementia at the age of 46. Since then she has gone on to challenge almost every stereotype of people with dementia by campaigning for self-advocacy, writing articles and speaking at national conferences. This book is a vivid account of the author's experiences of living with dementia, exploring the effects of memory problems, loss of independence, difficulties in communication and the exhaustion of coping with simple tasks.

Christine Bryden makes an outspoken attempt to change prevailing attitudes and misconceptions about the disease. Arguing for greater empowerment and respect for people with dementia as individuals, she also reflects on the importance of spirituality in her life and how it has helped her better understand who she is and who she is becoming. Contents: Preface. 1. A 'Roller-coaster' journey since early 1998. 2. 'Coming out' with dementia. 3. Let's talk about having dementia. 4. I know who I'll be when I die. Afterword. Appendix 1.

199 pages. Losing our connection with Spirit may be the biggest problem we suffer from today. We want to face our challenges and disappointment with grace; be creative and inspired; feel excited by a purpose and live fearlessly through an intuitive, guiding wisdom. We want to love and feel loved and realise genuine peace ...but as much as we desire a significant spiritual breakthrough and long to know our Divine selves, we're still not making the commitment that will ensure our success. We want the gifts, but we're not engaging in the practical work necessary to obtain them, so we remain stuck and more frustrated than ever. We know a lot about the power of Spirit, yet we aren't actually experiencing it. And we cannot do so through intellectual pursuits alone. In fact, we can only experience it through a deep, intentional daily practice of connecting with Spirit. When you truly make this connection, you'll realise that it's the most authentic, lasting power you have in your life. In this enlightening book, spiritual teacher Sonia Choquette will show you that even though you can't control the outside world, with the power of your Spirit, you can create a sense of purpose within that brings about profound contentment and personal peace - no matter what is going on around you.

Australia David Lovell Pub 1991 1863550208 / 9781863550208 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
220 indexed pages. Includes bibliographical references. The Catholic church is now the largest religious body in Australia. This book examines how contemporary Catholicism is performing in Australia today. It takes a sympathetic but relentless look at the critical issues that face Catholics and outlines an agenda for the church for the 1990s. It challenges both the church and Catholics to emerge from a comfortable sub-culture to confront these issues head on. No Set Agenda also looks to the future to issues such as immigration, the environment and resource development, as well as to the development of a Catholic identity, a deeper spirituality and a more elegant and tasteful worship. Paul Collins challenges our thinking about the state of Catholicism in Australia. He has fresh and invigorating things to say about a range of issues - from Sunday Mass and church schools to the media and the bishops; from matters of conscience and social justice to music and the universities. Paul Collins is a Catholic priest and as such writes with an insider's knowledge and affection.

When the Lord Speaks to the Heart, Courtois, Gaston

Canada Editions Paulines 1983 289039929X / 9782890399297 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
160 pages. All who have had the chance to meet Father Gaston Courtois at retreats, meetings, conferences, formation sessions or in the confessional, all who have found support from his impressive spirituality and humility about his works, will find in these intimate notes the ideas which the author cherished and developed with a passion which no one can resist. His writings are the reward of meaningful contemplation and reflection. In the last years of his life he frequented the chapel more often and for longer periods of time, with a notebook on his knee, praying, so to speak, with his pen to Christ, writing in his own words, "Your will be done." Father Courtois expressed often the desire for a great number of prayer leaders. He prayed often for this intention, which he often addressed to Our Lady as, "the first leader of prayer." His desire seems appealing today. Prayer groups and "schools of prayer" are springing up to guide those who wish to mature in the greatest of disciplines, the open communication between man and God. Father Gaston Courtois (1897-1970) was born in Paris. He served as an officer during World War I and was seriously wounded in action in 1917. After the war he entered the renowned Seminary of Saint Sulpice and in 1921 joined the Sons of Charity. Ordained in 1925 he served for several years as a parish priest and during that period collaborated in the foundation of the French J.O.C. (Young Christian Workers). This was the beginning of a chain of apostolic activities in which he would play a role of leadership»,directorship or editorship: in the fields of Catholic Action. Education and the administration of his own religious institute. His studies took him to the Sorbonne. and the Institut Catholique of Paris. His work was honored by the French Government, the French Academy and the University of Montreal. name in the first page.

USA Grave Distractions Publications 2014 0991349741 / 9780991349746 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
100 pages. To understand the impact of Pope Francis and his inspiration to the Catholic Church, indeed people of all religions, we turn to the two saints who are his inspiration, Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi and the great love of their spirituality. Eight hundred years ago when the Church had fallen into scandal and hard times, Saint Francis and Saint Clare lifted the Church to new life, new beginnings. Today the Church suffers the same crises. Today Pope Francis is looking at the heart full spirituality of Saint Francis and Saint Clare to lift the Church with less pomp and ceremony and more embracing the poor and unwanted. The Love Letters is the love story of Francis and Clare and the challenge for Pope Francis and the world to discover the same love in our hearts, our neighbor, nature, and all creation. The Love Letters is historical fiction. What if Saint Francis and Saint Clare were to meet Pope Francis? What would be their thoughts, dreams and hopes for a new Church? The Love Letters is the mystical love discovered by two of the world's greatest mystics long ago asking who is the new Pope Francis? Can he rebuild the Church into a living Church, a church less concerned with rules and order and more about forgiveness and compassion? In the silence of our hearts, in giving to those in need, Saint Francis, Saint Clare, and Pope Francis offer a new vision for us all to become instruments of true peace and joy. Bruce Davis, Ph.D. has pursued the footsteps of Saint Francis and Saint Clare for many years. For twelve years he and his wife, Ruth, lived in Assisi, Italy the historic home of these remarkable saints. There they began the Assisi Retreat Center which was awarded one of the top ten meditation centers in the world by Travel Leisure Magazine and CNN. Recently, Bruce and Ruth opened Silent Stay, a new retreat center near Napa, California. Bruce is the author of several books including Monastery Without Walls, The Magical Child Within You, and Simple Peace-The Spiritual Life of Saint Francis of Assisi.

85 pages. Written from a Christian perspective, this book struggles honestly with a dilemma facing 'believers' and 'unbelievers' alike: With so many religions on offer, can one of them be considered true? If there really is something spiritual out there, wouldn't there be some pretty clear signposts to it? Surely God wouldn't leave people with nothing but a bewildering variety of religious voices? If God exists - wouldn't he have made himself clearer? In the second If I Were God book, John Dickson considers the vast array of spiritual claims made by different religions and individuals and asks whether any clarity about God can be found. Written from a Christian perspective, this book struggles honestly with a dilemma facing 'believers' and 'unbelievers' alike: With so many religions on offer, can one of them be considered true?

Sheer Grace: Living the Mystery of God, Dizdar, Drasko

U.S.A. Paulist Pr 2008 0809145170 / 9780809145171 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
218 indexed pages about doing liturgy as theology, and about a way of doing theology through liturgy as something that God does; and invites us to participate in as fully, consciously and actively as we are able. Liturgical renewal is the gift of the ever ancient, ever new Spirit that God offers us, not our task of rubric reform; and liturgical restoration is about God giving us back our divine destiny as creatures who are being ever created anew in the image and likeness of God, not an escape into a dead past. Sheer Grace tries to show not just the "link between" but the indissolubility of theology, liturgy, and spirituality; and it does so by grounding it in a radical tradition of liturgy as transformation that has its roots in the scriptures and the lived liturgical experience of our biblical and ecclesial ancestors. At the same time it looks to the present experience of Christians who feel a deep and largely unmet need for that same kind of transforming experience that liturgy can be; and it looks to the future with hope as a gift of "sheer grace," as something only God can and does give, and not as something we can manufacture by our own efforts at renewal or restoration.

The Social Justice Agenda: Justice, Ecology, Power and the Church, Doust, Jon
18 Doust, Jon The Social Justice Agenda: Justice, Ecology, Power and the Church
Australia Collins Dove 1991 0859249751 / 9780859249751 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
201 indexed pages. There have been major developments in the spirituality, theology and teaching of the Churches on social issues during the past generation. This book is an attempt to meet the need for a general introduction to the topic of justice-and-peace as it has emerged for the Christian Churches in recent years. The emphasis is on the role that can be played by the institutional Church in responding to social justice issues. Beginning with a general account of the major issues of social justice which confront the Christian today, the author then summarizes what the Churches have to say about these issues. After exploring various ways in which Christians and the Churches can commit themselves to the promotion of justice in society, the author examines the crucial contribution which can be made by the Churches to the search for alternatives, that is towards the building of a society and a world that is more just, more respectful of the earth, more sustainable and more participative. The book then discusses what is involved in the Church itself becoming more just. The key issue here is that the Church has power of various kinds and so it is necessary to examine how this power is to be used in ways that are truly just. The question of formation and the training for various kinds of special ministry in the Church is examined, and ways are explored in which commitment to the transformation of society and practical experience of community-building may be integrated with other aspects of formation. The author is a well-known facilitator, consultant, trainer, resource-person and author. For many years he devoted himself to working, in Ireland and overseas, with community groups, Church groups, and teams of all kinds, with a special emphasis on empowerment, community-building, and conflict-resolution.
