Discover your ability to be brave in times of adversity with Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously—from one of the greatest spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. Courage is not the absence of fear, says Osho. It is, rather, the total presence of fear, with the courage to face it. This book provides a bird’s-eye view of the whole terrain—where fears originate, how to understand them, and how to call on your inner strength to confront them. In the process, Osho proposes that whenever we are faced with uncertainty and change in our lives, it is actually a cause for celebration. Instead of trying to hang on to the familiar and the known, we can learn to enjoy these situations as opportunities for adventure and for deepening our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Having courage is more than just heroic acts in exceptional circumstances. It’s a necessity to lead authentic and fulfilling lives on a day-to-day basis. This is the courage to change when change is needed, the courage to stand up for our own truth, even against the opinions of others, and the courage to embrace the unknown in spite of our fears—in our relationships, in our careers, or in the ongoing journey of understanding who we are and why we are here. Courage also features meditation techniques specifically designed by Osho to help people cope with their fears. Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

Too often, Christ followers are content to live inside the church walls with other Christians. Jesus calls us to shatter our comfort zones and dangerously share the love we have found in him with people whose lives are characterized by brokenness, self-sufficiency, emotional poverty, and rejection. Discipleship is the process of intentionally and thoughtfully introducing the grace of Jesus to these people so that their hearts will bulge with love, their souls will brim with life, and their faces will brighten with light as they come to intimately know him. How is this accomplished? In these pages, unbelievers who became disciples of Christ reveal what factors influenced them to follow Jesus. The research revealed that discipling is an intentional process that is most effective when our lives reflect the character of Jesus. The author explains discipleship as a relational process that can be understood and effectively accomplished by virtually any follower of Jesus.

Writer and artist Hans Wilhelm delivers messages of comfort and courage in a book meant to inspire readers at times when their whole world seems falling down around them. He supplements his own inspiring thoughts by drawing from religious sources of many cultures and teachings. His central claims are twofold. First, he asserts that the realm of spirit--not the material world--is the ultimate reality. Second, he believes that all men and women are one with God. Citing from Ecclesiastes, Isaiah, Psalms, The New Testament, spiritual thinkers from the East, and even from secular writers like Goethe and Charles Dickens, Wilhelm offers words of wisdom for readers when they are facing tough situations, are frightened about the future, or are beset with personal suffering. Finally, Wilhelm invites his readers to "Celebrate life--even in the midst of a storm. Bring joy because you are Joy!"

Osho is one of the best-known spiritual teachers of our time. The Sunday Times named him one of the '1,000 makers of the twentieth century'; the novelist Tom Robbins has called him 'the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ'. Nearly two decades after his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to grow, reaching seekers around the world.

When you engage with Osho's writing, you feel as if he is speaking to you. His conversational style is fluid and engaging, and while his acute perception often comes as a delight and a surprise, his shrewd insights will stay with you always. Whether he is discussing a complex philosophy, or the teachings of a great mystic, Osho always approaches the subject with his own distinctively irreverent, thought-provoking and inspiring perspectives. Covering subjects including Belief, Responsibility, Relationships, Doing Good and the Power of Consciousness, this is a book that offers real insight into leading a more spiritual life now.

The Ideological Hero In The Novels Of Robert Brasillach Roger Vailland Andr Malraux

The first book to provide a strong theoretical examination of the political ideologies of Brasillach, Vailland, and Malraux, Dr. Tame's study deals in particular with their contributions to the concept of the ideological hero. From different positions of the political spectrum, the three twentieth-century French writers produced what has been called politically committed literature. The principal concepts explored are of «Fascist man» in two novels by Brasillach, the figure of the «Bolshevik» in three novels by Vailland, and that of the Communist hero in three novels by Malraux. One of Dr. Tame's significant findings is that the various images of the ideological hero presented by the three novelists have more in common with one another than has been generally supposed.

Leisured Resistance examines the varied ways in which cultured Roman aristocrats, of very different periods, used their country estates as a political and literary tool. While for some the villas were retreats in which to compose literature and to escape from politics, others adapted this same tradition of cultured otium (or deliberate retirement from everyday politics) to present radical and competing visions of society and literature alike. Examining in-depth sources from both prose and verse from the time of Cicero to the last centuries of the Roman Empire in the west, the title demonstrates how the traditional image of the Roman aristocrat on his country estate was politically and socially very flexible: allowing authors, as times and circumstances changed, to present themselves or their patrons and friends as being in retreat from politics, or alternatively, as providing a focus for political opposition through the deliberate embracing of cultural values and schools of philosophy that offered resistance to prevailing political orthodoxy. The title ends by exploring how this tradition was adapted in the greatly changed world of the barbarian-ruled kingdoms that replaced direct Roman rule in Gaul in the fifth and sixth centuries.

When disaster struck at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, Dennis Smith was among the first to arrive on the scene. Report from Ground Zero is his insider's account of the heroic efforts of the firefighters, police and emergency workers who rushed to downtown New York to face the greatest challenge of their lives. In all, 343 firefighters gave their lives. Entire companies were lost. Among the dead were a father and son; the department's beloved chaplain; commanders and rookies. Smith, author of the classic bestseller Report from Engine Company 82 and once described as 'the Poet Laureate of firefighters' by the New York Post, tells their stories and those of their families, the camaraderie in their companies and the massive recovery efforts following the catastrophe. As the world tries to come to terms with the horror of what happened, the firefighters' courage and fortitude in the face of enormous personal danger and bereavement offers a beacon of hope and redemption. Report from Ground Zero is a tribute to those heroes for our troubled times.
