Prayer of the Heart in Christian & Sufi Mysticism guides the reader through the stages of mystical prayer. Mystical prayer is a way to create a living relationship with the Divine within the heart. Drawing on Christian and Sufi sources such as St. Teresa of Avila, Attar, St. John of the Cross, and Rumi, as well as from his own experience, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee describes how prayer is first born of need, but then takes one deep within the heart, into the stages of Union and Ecstasy. Through mystical prayer, one is drawn beyond any words into the interior silence of real communion with God. Here, in the silence within the heart, a meeting and merging takes place that carries us beyond our self into the mystery of divine presence, into the secret nature of love's oneness. Prayer of the Heart in Christian and Sufi Mysticism explores the inner listening of the heart, and the secret of 'pray without ceasing' in which we discover how prayer becomes alive within the heart. Finally there is a chapter on the need at this time to pray for the Earth. How can we pray for the well-being of the Earth? How can we include the Earth in our prayers and our heart? This little book is an offering of the heart that brings together the Christian and Sufi mystical traditions in the oneness of love to which they belong. It will benefit any practitioner of prayer, anyone who is drawn to discover a relationship with God within their heart.

'The Signs of God' explores the importance of mystical consciousness at this time of global transition. In the depths of the heart is hidden the secret purpose of creation, which is the key to our present time of transformation. The work of the mystic is to make this key accessible to humanity, and so open the doors of revelation. The possibilities of the future are present but veiled, the joy of life is waiting to return. The mystic can help us to awaken to the oneness that is essential to life, and to recognize the signs of God that will guide us and reveal our true purpose.

Working with Oneness brings mysticism into the center of the marketplace -- into the world of business and technology -- and shows how we can work with it in everyday life. Humanity has been given access to the secrets of oneness, but we need to learn how to work with them. The dynamic energy of oneness has the potential to heal the planet and revolutionize life more than we can imagine, but it requires our individual participation and awareness to become fully alive. Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee provides a blueprint for working consciously with this energy. He stresses the need to change from hierarchical, patriarchal power structures to organic patterns that allow for the free flow of energy and ideas. The Internet already provides a model for a non-hierarchical structure, and the explosive growth of the Web shows the potency of this model. It portrays a unified network that has the potential for global consciousness. We need to understand the dynamics of oneness that gave birth to this model, and how it can function on all levels. On a physical level it can enable goods to flow directly to where they are needed. On the level of human consciousness it points to an interconnectivity of consciousness as the next step in our development. Working with Oneness discusses a number of additional important topics, including: the changing energy structure of the planet; the power of individual consciousness; the danger of the desire for spiritual security; the return of joy to everyday life; the awakening of the heart of the world; a new understanding of magic; the use of the imagination; and mystical participation in life with the energy of oneness. Working with Oneness shows how to participatein life free of the patterns of the past, so that the divine can come alive in every moment of every day.
