This book explores the concept that the reality which is created by the consciousness inherent in the Western worldview is exceptionally limiting and probably unsustainable. After describing the contexts within which the book was written the author documents his personal journey in search of wholeness and meaning. From his experience of this journey he suggests that the wisdom, insight, and praxis contained within - what he describes as the meta-narratives of - Holism, Indigenous cultures, and Eastern traditions are manifestations of a holistic consciousness. The author explores the concept that a shift to such a holistic consciousness is required in order to redress the imbalance that is evident in all humanity's relationships, and he suggests that enabling such a shift in consciousness would have deep implications for the concepts and contexts of community, adult learning, meaningful work, and sustainability.

Born to the middle class, in Middle America, in the middle of the twentieth century, to middle-of-the-road republicans, Jashanananda was a fearful child. He was reluctant to make an appearance in this world and then slow to blossom. It was not until he found himself studying psychology in the "free love" sixties that he began exploring new ideas and asking questions like "What is this world?" and "Who am I?" With the help of psychedelic drugs, Jashanananda turned away from academia and began an inner quest to find what's real. This journey led him to Eastern religions and down the path of yoga, which carried him through a twenty-year marriage, a job in corporate America, and raising three children in the mountains of Colorado. Then, one day, in the midst of his middleclass suburban life, he had an awakening and everything changed. He was back on his journey in search of his true self, the source of love, and the true nature of existence. This is his story.

Often, we hear people say that all religions should be forbidden, because they only bring misery. These reactions are understandable when we see or hear the daily news. But where does all this misery come from? Is it because former religious leaders pursued self-interest too much, instead of the Christian faith from the source? Or is it our indifferent attitude, that offers negative forces a free path? To find the answer, we must go back to our source of life, to the reason for our earthly existence. It teaches us, that what we call religion, is the development of a spiritual consciousness, to elevate the human soul, the very self. And that the words of our Creator do not stop on the last page of the bible. He has sent us His New Revelations to encourage us and to find our way home again, to the House of our Eternal Loving Father. Whoever reads the book may realize how important it is to ask yourself life questions. How you can give substance to your earthly existence. That this book may help you on your way to find your purpose in your life’s journey.

Anthony C. Yu’s translation of The Journey to the West,initially published in 1983, introduced English-speaking audiences to the classic Chinese novel in its entirety for the first time. Written in the sixteenth century, The Journey to the West tells the story of the fourteen-year pilgrimage of the monk Xuanzang, one of China’s most famous religious heroes, and his three supernatural disciples, in search of Buddhist scriptures. Throughout his journey, Xuanzang fights demons who wish to eat him, communes with spirits, and traverses a land riddled with a multitude of obstacles, both real and fantastical. An adventure rich with danger and excitement, this seminal work of the Chinese literary canonis by turns allegory, satire, and fantasy. With over a hundred chapters written in both prose and poetry, The Journey to the West has always been a complicated and difficult text to render in English while preserving the lyricism of its language and the content of its plot. But Yu has successfully taken on the task, and in this new edition he has made his translations even more accurate and accessible. The explanatory notes are updated and augmented, and Yu has added new material to his introduction, based on his original research as well as on the newest literary criticism and scholarship on Chinese religious traditions. He has also modernized the transliterations included in each volume, using the now-standard Hanyu Pinyin romanization system. Perhaps most important, Yu has made changes to the translation itself in order to make it as precise as possible. One of the great works of Chinese literature, The Journey to the West is not only invaluable to scholars of Eastern religion and literature, but, in Yu’s elegant rendering, also a delight for any reader.

"The art of life is the most distinguished and rarest of all the arts." -C.G. Jung, CW 8, par. 789. The Cycle of Life explores the patterns that unfold over the course of our lives, as we set out to find our place in the world, in our efforts to live authentically, and in our search for home-that place within ourselves that can so easily be neglected or disregarded in this fast-paced modern world. In the first half of life, the task of the young traveler is to depart from home, to adventure out into the world to find his or her own individual path. However, in the second half, we find ourselves on what often amounts to a very long journey in search of home. In many a tale, the hero, for instance Gilgamesh, sets off on his road to find life's elixir, while other stories, such as the Odyssey, revolve around the hero's long and arduous journey home. Many are also familiar with the journey of Dante, who at the very beginning of his Divine Comedy finds himself "Midway along the journey of our life.” The archetypal journey of life is constantly reenacted in the never-ending process of individuation. We find ourselves returning to this venture repeatedly, every night, as we set out on our voyage into the landscape of our unconscious. Many dreams begin by being on the way, for instance: I am on my way to ... I am driving on a road that leads into the desert ... I am walking through one room after the other in a long corridor-like building ... I am walking towards my office, but it looks different than in reality ... I walk on the pavement and on the opposite side of the street someone seems to be following me ... I go down into an underground parking ... I am in my car, but someone I don't know is driving ... I have to go to the place from where I came ...

A true spiritual journey begins within. The search for who we are, and the deeper purpose of existence, is ultimately an inner quest. Searching Within provides the tools and information to set out on this inward journey. It explains why acquiring self-knowledge is so important for any kind of profound inner change, and how it can bring many benefits to one's life and the world. It describes how using the timeless principles of self-discovery, one can observe and understand their subconscious, with its many drives and desires, and uncover the causes of suffering within themselves--and at the same time, develop their consciousness, the source of inner peace and love, and the spiritual part each person carries within. Interspersed throughout the book are a series of the most effective and powerful exercises for self-discovery, which can be put into practice in daily life, and used to acquire one's own personal experience. With detailed, clear, precise, and yet simple explanations, this book is the most effective handbook on self-discovery there is and provides a firm foundation and beginning to the inner journey back to source. If taken, the journey leads us further and further within, and at the same time, deeper and deeper into the mysteries of creation. As we penetrate into our own psyche, we penetrate into the very heart of the cosmos. If taken far enough, this journey leads to the reunion with one's divine Being and the very source of creation itself. Mark Pritchard (writing with the name Belsebuub) is the author of a number of books on spirituality, out-of-body experiences, dreams, self-discovery, and esoteric knowledge. He has appeared on radio and television programs internationally, and writes from decades of spiritual and mystical experience.
