Die spirituelle Dimension des Wünschens. Wayne Dyer gehört seit 35 Jahren zu den bekanntesten spirituellen Autoren. In seinem neuesten Buch greift er das populäre Thema Wünschen und Manifestieren auf und bringt es in Zusammenhang mit der Suche nach unserem wahren Selbst. Wünsche werden selten wahr, wenn sie aus dem Ego kommen. sie werden Realität, wenn sie in Übereinstimmung mit dem höchsten Selbst erfolgen. Das Ego sitzt im Gefängnis falscher »ich bin«-Sätze wie »ich bin schüchtern« oder »ich bin ungeschickt im Umgang mit Geld«. Unser innerstes Wesen jedoch kennt keine Grenzen. Es ist potenziell unendlich, göttlich. Wir müssen deshalb all das hinter uns lassen, was uns begrenzt, und uns mit unserem höheren Selbst verbinden. Dann können wir erkennen, was unsere Seele braucht und wir werden Mitschöpfer unserer Realität. Wayne Dyer zeigt in fünf praktischen Schritten, wie wir die Wünsche unseres höheren Selbst erkennen und auf diesen aufbauend unser Leben neu gestalten. so können wir unseren Körper heilen, unseren Geist beruhigen und unsere Seele glücklich machen.

Ist schöpferisches Leben in Freiheit für alle erreichbar? Und wie kann man sie im Leben verwirklichen? Laut Krishnamurti ist es die Wahrheit, die befreit, und diese ist weder in Institu tionen, in religiösen Dogmen noch beispirituellen "Autoritäten" zu fi nden. Wahre Freiheit kann nicht von außen kommen. Niemand kann uns sagen, was wir tun oder glauben sollen. Sie kann nur aus der schöpferischen Entdeckung des eigenen Selbst entstehen. In dieser völlig überarbeiteten Neuübersetzung, die bisher auf Deutsch unveröffentlichte Texte enthält, zeigt der große indische Philosoph Krishnamurti uns ein weites Spektrum an Themen wie Leiden, Angst, Liebe und Sex, die Bedeutung des Lebens und der Transformation und bezieht diese immer wieder auf das Wesentliche: Die Suche nach wahrer, schöpferischer Freiheit.

Insight Dialogue is a way of bringing the tranquility and insight attained in meditation directly into your interactions with other people. It’s a practice that involves interacting with a partner in a retreat setting or on your own, as a way of accessing a profound kind of insight. Then, you take that insight on into the grind of everyday human interactions. Gregory Kramer has been teaching the practice (which he originated) for more than a decade in retreats around the world. It’s something strikingly new in the world of Buddhist practice—yet it’s completely grounded in traditional Buddhist teaching. Kramer begins with a detailed presentation of the central Buddhist teaching of the Four Noble Truths seen through an interpersonal lens. Because dukkha (suffering or unsatisfactoriness) is often most forcefully felt in our relations with others, interpersonal relationships are a wonderfully useful place to practice. He breaks the Noble Truths down into component parts to observe how they manifest particularly in relationship to others, using examples from his own life and practice, as well as from his students’. He then goes on to present the practice as it’s taught in his workshops and retreats. There are a few basic steps to the practice, deceptively simple to describe: (1) pause, (2) relax, (3) open, (4) trust emergence, (5) listen deeply, and (6) speak the truth. The sequence begins following a period of meditation, and includes periods of speaking, listening, and mutual silence. Kramer includes numerous examples of people’s experience with the practice from his retreats, and shows how the insight gained from the techniques can be brought into real life. More than just testimonials for how well the practice "works," the personal stories demonstrate the problems that arise, the different routes the practice can follow, and the sometimes surprising insights that are gained.
