The Buddhist practice of mindfulness caught on in the west when we began to understand the everyday, personal benefits it brought us. Now, in this extraordinary book, the highly acclaimed thought leader and longtime English translator of His Holiness the Dalai Lama shows us that compassion can bring us even more. Based on the landmark course in compassion training Jinpa helped create at Stanford Medical School, A Fearless Heart shows us that we actually fear compassion. We worry that if we are too compassionate with others we will be taken advantage of, and if we are too compassionate with ourselves we will turn into slackers. Using science, insights from both classical Buddhist and western psychology, and stories both from others and from his own extraordinary life, Jinpa shows us how to train our compassion muscle to relieve stress, fight depression, improve our health, achieve our goals, and change our world. Practical, spiritual, and immediately relevant, A Fearless Heart will speak to readers of The Art of Happiness and Wherever You Go, There You Are.

"Sowing & Reaping a Fearless Heart - Convicted not Condemned" is the true story of one man’s spiritual journey through life. His journey begins in a dysfunctional household as a child with an alcoholic policeman father, a tolerant mother and a brutal older brother, and takes him through 3 failed marriages, one son and 8 years in the Marine Corps. While in the Marines, he gave his life to Jesus Christ. However, helicopter crashes and shark infested waters left him plagued with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and he resorted to self medication with drugs and alcohol. This lifestyle eventually landed him in jail and 27 months of prison. He finds his roots in his father’s childhood home of Winnsboro, SC, and begins seeking restoration from family that he’s let down over and over. On a walk home from shopping, he’s shot in the head and left for dead. This experience causes him to realize he needs Jesus more than ever and he cries out to GOD in surrender -- then finds more than he imagined. GOD heals him, restores him, and moves him to go on a mission to Swaziland in Southern Africa. He meets a kindred spirit online, a published author and high school teacher who goes on missions to Ghana, West Africa annually. Soon, they are engaged and he is ordained as a Minister. Together they form Waters Edge Ministries, planting home based mini churches and coordinating missions to Africa. An exciting journey that will provide hope for those who dare to turn it's pages. Foreword by Ralph Moore, founder of the Hope Chapel movement. Visit http://weministry.com & http://weministry.blogspot.com & http://weministry.ning.com/

In 1979 Jon Kabat-Zinn popularised the Buddhist practice of mindfulness when he revealed that it could alleviate depression. While mindfulness is a powerful tool, it will only take us so far. Now the highly acclaimed thought leader and English translator for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Thupten Jinpa Langri (known as Jinpa) teaches us to take the next step. He shows us that compassion correlates strongly with happiness, stress reduction, a sense of purpose, better health and a longer life. Self-compassion is the overlooked key to achieving our goals. Yet many of us resist compassion, worrying that if we are too compassionate with others we will be taken advantage of and if we are too compassionate with ourselves we won't achieve our goals in life. We can actually fear compassion. Using the latest science, psychology (from contemporary Western and classical Buddhist sources) as well as stories from others and his own extraordinary life, Jinpa shows us how to train our compassion muscle. Jinpa's programme derives from a remarkable course in Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) that he developed at Stanford University Medical School. Much like Jon Kabat-Zinn's landmark Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programme, CCT has already had profound effects on the many participants. Thupten Jinpa is the perfect guide to achieving a greater sense of wellbeing.

Author David McGee also examines the early '70s east Texas singer-songwriter scene - where Earle met his future mentors Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt - and the rise of the New Traditionalist and Americana movements.".

Giving and reflection on life’s curves, and its ups and down, enables us to take ordinary everyday things and turn them into inspirations. Who wants to grovel in the mud, run through sharp thistles, and squeeze through the thorny hedges of life? Not me! I trust encouragement will be in multiplications of hope and abundant freedom of the “I love living life” people around you even when life sucks. Sharing brings us into a realm of happiness and joy. Use something from this book and pass it on, then add something new and fresh of you own. Blessed By God to Be a Blessing You are blessed by God to be a blessing. We receive power beyond ourselves To do what we already know, It’s because in the beginning was the Word, Speaking blessing upon blessing like snow. We are blessed to be a blessing, For God’s blessing became flesh and blood, And moved into the neighborhood To live among those he loves. Remember how God spoke to Moses . . . “Tell Aaron to give blessing to my land.” So he cried, “The Lord bless you, protect you, For his face radiates upon you with joy.’ Paul passed on God’s grace to the Church, His grace, his love, his communion now ours To pass on to others around us. We’ve freely received, so let us freely give out. God speaks blessing and still speaks From the beginning of time until the now, So let’s pass it on like Moses and Paul He’s blessed us to be blessings galore. Yes, we’re blessed by God to bless others. Carley 17.11.14
