The little book by Epictetus called Enchiridion or "manual" has played a disproportionately large role in the rise of modern attitudes and modern philosophy. As soon as it had been translated into the vernacular languages, it became a bestseller among independent intellectuals, among anti-Christian thinkers, and among philosophers of a subjective cast. Montaigne had a copy of the Enchiridion among his books. Pascal violently rejected the megalomaniac pride of the Stoic philosopher. Frederick the Great carried the book with him on all campaigns. It was a source of inspiration and encouragement to Anthony, Earl of Shaftesbury, in the serious illness which ended only in his death; many pages of his diaries contain passages copied from the Enchiridion. It has been studied and widely quoted by Scottish philosophers like Francis Hutcheson, Adam Smith, and Adam Ferguson who valued Stoic moral philosophy for its reconciliation of social dependency and personal independence.

Here is the revealing underground classic, a work that stands beside the "Seth" books as a delightful and invaluable guide to our inner spirit and our outer world. Emmanuel speaks to us through Pat Rodegast and shares his wisdom and insights on all aspects of life. Beautifully written and illustrated, Emmanuel's Book I is to be treasured, enjoyed and passed on to a friend. Emmanuel says: "The gifts I wish to give you are my deepest love, the safety of truth, the wisdom of the universe and the reality of God . . . . The issue of whether there is a Greater Reality or not, for me at least, has been settled. I know that there is. So I will speak to you from the knowing that I possess." Ram Dass, in the introduction, says: "Being with Emmanuel one comes to appreciate the vast evolutionary context in which our lives are being lived . . . And at each moment we are at just the right place in the journey. As Emmanuel points out, 'Who you are is a necessary step to being who you will be.'" From the Trade Paperback edition.

In The Passionate Mind, Joel Kramer asserts that "what we believe determines much of what we think and do: the way we move, the way we respond to people, how we think of ourselves, how we see the world in general." His basic message, stated in short, clear prose, is that passion is to be found only in the present moment, and mainly through becoming aware of the thoughts flowing through our minds, and through the primal process of observing our thoughts, they begin to self-correct. From the author of The Guru Papers, The Passionate Mind is a wonderful journey for anyone seeking to discover how to look at oneself.

We are challenged by life's difficulties and by people not doing what we want. We desire the world to be different than it is, and it refuses to comply. Inner peace is the only answer, but we cannot get to inner peace using gurus, seminars, workshops, or meditation, as good as those may be. This book cuts through all the esoteric advice and gets directly at what we have to understand about ourselves and have to do to attain inner peace. The key: Only with help from those who care for us can we begin the journey.

Epictetus was a philosopher, a prominent figure of the Roman stoicism. A real name of this person was unknown because Epictetus was a nickname, translated as bought, that showed his status. Epictetus, while being a slave, was owned by one of the Nero's bodyguards and was brought to Rome with such a status. He was born in Phrygia (Minor Asia). Later, the owner granted him freedom.When he was a slave, Epictetus together with his master went to lectures by Musonius Rufus, a representative of the stoicism. At that time this philosophical trend was very popular, and educated Romans considered it a sign of good manners to go to such lectures. Epictetus highly respected Musonius Rufus and joined himself this flow.
