Everyone exists, but not everyone live. What is life? "Your birth giver smile when you were born, And your birth given cry when you die, Make it special, make it large, Let the whole world frown when you die, and they pray to have you as their child in your next life". This won't be an easy process, you have to learn everything, you have to learn from your bitter experiences, you have to learn how to get up, when you fall, you have to learn how to fight back, you have to learn and you have to thank those difficult-difficult circumstances which got you down on your knees, for they teach you how to get up on your feet again. Next time you will fall, don't forget to thank your previous fall and this book which taught you to stand up and fight back, which gave you that "What next?" attitude. Give yourself the most precious gift of life with this book.

Poet, philosopher, and cancer survivor Mark Nepo has been breaking a path of spiritual inquiry for more than forty years. In his latest book, the #1 New York Times bestselling author “writes reflectively and poetically about the lifelong spiritual journey” (Publishers Weekly). Called one of the finest spiritual guides of our time, Nepo explores what it means to become our truest self as we face life’s challenges—as well as its joys. Navigating some of the soul’s deepest, most ancient questions, he asks: How do we stay vital and buoyant amid the storms of life? What is the secret to coming alive? The soul’s journey is inevitable, and no matter where we go we can’t escape this foundational truth: What’s in the way is the way. As Nepo writes, “The point of experience is not to escape life but to live it.” Featured on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday program, and a key presenter in Oprah’s nationwide The Life You Want Weekend Tour, Nepo inspires each of us to discover who we were born to be. Like his bestselling The Book of Awakening, The Endless Practice is filled with insights and stories, guidance and practice that will bring you closer to living life to the fullest.

Sitting in a meadow in the shade of a crabapple tree were two little sisters. They watched as ants traveled back and forth on an exact path with loads that appeared much too heavy for their tiny backs. Meeting other ants they would stop and engage in "ant talk" then march on to their intended destination. Observing nature, the sisters learned that all of life's creatures have little worlds of their own that somehow must be important to God. Otherwise, what was His creative purpose for their being? One Life is the story of an ordinary person who watched as life progressed from being relatively simple and somewhat understood to being one in which the infinite perplexities appeared beyond understanding-let alone solvable. It is about a teacher's life experiences as she observed that lurking beneath the surface were interferences that would make the teaching of children much more difficult than it ought to be. In its own subtle way One Life shows how biblical truth has been undermined one step at a time, slowly, very slowly, so that society in general is taken unaware. The real concern is that today it continues. Virginia Parks Jones was born May 23, 1922, to Hobart and Esther McBrayer Parks in the hills of Kentucky in a town called Corbin. She taught school for forty years at the elementary and junior high levels, having begun her career in the small coal-mining community of Mary Helen. She ended her career in Orange County, Florida. She and her husband, Harry, reside in Harlan, Kentucky perhaps proving that the hills of Kentucky have a way of calling you back home.

The third reader of my long-gone school days said something like, Life is a river, from its small and unimportant beginning it flows steadily onward. It may hesitate, but never stop until early or late its end is reached. By anyones calculations, the river of my life has been a long and, on the whole, a very placid one. No treacherous rapids or impassable falls have ever disturbed its steady flow. I have filled many pages with recollections of what to some may seem a very humdrum and uneventful life. Arent most lives just that except to the individuals who have lived them? This self-appointed task has been a very pleasant one. I trust that someone sometime in the future will find pleasure and perhaps a bit of knowledge hidden in these pages. It is said that three score years and ten is ones allotment for life; beyond that, one lives on borrowed time. It has never been clear to me just where and from whom this time is borrowed. I must say, the last decade and a half that I have borrowed from somewhere have been most satisfactory. I most sincerely hope that my credit will hold good awhile longer

The title of our collection is owed to Hannah Arendt herself. Writing to Karl Jaspers on August 6, 1955, she spoke of how she had only just begun to really love the world and expressed her desire to testify to that love in the title of what came to be published as The Human Condition: "Out of gratitude, I want to call my book about political theories Arnor Mundi. "t In retrospect, it was fitting that amor mundi, love of the world, never became the title of only one of Arendt's studies, for it is the theme which permeates all of her thought. The purpose of this volume's a- ticles is to pay a critical tribute to this theme by exploring its meaning, the cultural and intellectual sources from which it derives, as well as its resources for conte- porary thought and action. We are privileged to include as part of the collection two previously unpu- lished lectures by Arendt as well as a rarely noticed essay which she wrote in 1964. Taken together, they engrave the central features of her vision of amor mundi. Arendt presented "Labor, Work, Action" on November 10, 1964, at a conference "Christianity and Economic Man:Moral Decisions in an Affluent Society," which 2 was held at the Divinity School of the University of Chicago.

The Sovereignty Of Taste

Challenging prevailing trends toward aesthetic neutrality, James S. Hans argues that there is such a thing as good and bad taste, that taste is something one is born with, and that it is firmly rooted in the mechanics of biology. Taste is everything, Hans says, for it produces the primary values that guide our lives. Taste is the fundamental organizing mechanism of human bodies, a lifelong effort to fit one's own rhythms to the rhythms and patterns of the natural world and the larger human community. It is an aesthetic sorting process by which one determines what belongs in--a conversation, a curriculum, a committee, a piece of art, a meal, a logical argument--and what should be left out. On the one hand, taste is the source of beauty, justice, and a sense of the good. On the other hand, as an arbiter of the laws of fair and free play, taste enters into more ominous and destructive patterns--but patterns nonetheless--of resentment and violence. Hans develops his conception of taste through astute readings of five literary landmarks: Milan Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Sophocles' Oedipus the King, William Faulkner's Light in August, and the poetry of Emily Dickinson and the Polish Nobel Laureate Czeslaw Milosz. These texts explore the art of soulmaking and the quest for personal expression: the costs as well as the fruits that come from acceding to the imperatives of one's being. They also reveal how the collision of personal and collective rhythms, whether in the Greek citadel or the Mississippi countryside, leads to violence and ritualized sacrifice. Elegant, principled, and provocative, The Sovereignty of Taste is an essential book that restores taste to its rightful place of influence, shoring up the ground beneath civilization's feet and offering hope for the future of integrity, value, and aesthetic truth.
