Beautiful new translations,
modern renditions of timeless principles from Genesis, the
Koran, Rumi, the Gospels. KJV: "And God blessed them,
and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish
the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish
of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every
living thing that moveth upon the earth. Klotz" version:
The entire principle of humanity was still in its beginningness
- only in potential, not action, yet, it already had a life
of its own. The Universe breathed compassionately on this
yet-unmanifest being so that it began to generate, multiply,
and fill space. It became the dominant and most attractive
goal of the Universe to establish the human principle in
embodiment, embracing the whole of manifest creation at

A former Rand Corporation
systems analyst, Ralph Strauch is now a martial arts expert
and Feldenkrais teacher and practitioner. His disillusionment
with the impossibility of imposing logically thought-out
"systems" onto living people, expecting them to
perform as predicted and being constantly unnerved at the
folly of it, led him on his search for the meaning and purpose
of life. This book is all about perception, how we take
it for granted that what we have been told is true, and
how agreement seems to make truth, when in fact it does
not necessarily. Full of easy little experiments to test
and correct perception, this book is a joy. And as a bonus,
there is a chapter on how dolphins communicate, written
so anyone can understand. 224

If you are interested in
immortality and understand the unlikelihood of just an indefinite
span of years for the physical flesh and the probability
of the need for a body of a new dimension, you will enjoy
this book. Some of the science is a bit out there, but well
worth checking out. Gregg Braden discusses the end of the
present era and the role we play as a bridge to the new
one. A gem of a book.

A lovely little fable about a true Teacher
and his friends, witty and full of lessons about love.
by SUSAN TROTT
Oh, the dear sweet Holy Man is back.
Did you read the first book, The Holy Man? A lovely
little fable about a true Teacher and his friends, witty
and full of lessons about love. Because I enjoyed it, I
read this sequel, The Holy Man's Journey, expecting more
of the same-was I surprised! This book reaches another level
of Truth, and is almost shocking in its honest portrayal
of how students are taught. The shocker will mean a lot
to you if you have ever known a Holy Man yourself.
by JOHN SQUADRA
Erotic and exotic Spiritual poetry-an
acquired taste, I know. But this book is positively Rumiesque.
The author writes of his love for the feminine and the spiritual
nature of the experience: he sees The Beloved in his arms.
Not for everyone, granted, but if you are interested in
the real meaning of romance, this little volume is for you.
||The Illuminated Rumi
& Commentary by COLEMAN BARKS
Illuminations by MICHAEL GREEN
You know that old question, "If
you were stranded on a desert island and could have only
one book, what would it be?" This would be my new choice
- I can hardly believe how full this volume is. Not only
the magnificent ancient/modern/timeless words of the beloved
Rumi, but the most amazing collages of every genre of art.
Famous images from Christian, Hindu, Islamic, Native American
and other art positioned in amazing ways with fractals and
smoke and flowers and calligraphy woven together with the
words. I have never seen a book quite like this. The images
are so striking that even through four readings it still
is fresh and new, I still pick up things I didn't see before.
Each page is unique. If you only get yourself one present
this year, you won't be disappointed if it is this.
||The Way of Story
by HELEN M. LUKE
"It is in part by our response to the
great stories of the world that we too can begin to find,
each of us, the individual story, expressing the symbolic
meaning behind the facts of our fate and behind the motives
that determine the day-to-day choices of our lives."--Helen
M. Luke The Way of the Story is a gem. The Wise Old
Woman herself examines The Inner Story, The Hunter and the
Hunted, Salmon-Fisher Boy, The novels of Charles Williams,
The Exodus and The Story of Saul. Helen Luke's intelligence,
wit and wisdom are bound to delight you.
Woman's Book of Dreams,
Dreaming As a Spiritual Practice
by CONNIE KAPLAN
Although we don't support (or reject)
"unprovables" (astrology, for instance, which
is used in this book), we certainly do support our friends
and their work. Connie Kaplan is one of the most brilliant
people I've ever known (as well as extremely witty!), and
has managed to integrate her keen intellect with the Feminine.
The Woman's Book of Dreams, Dreaming As a Spiritual Practice,
is a synthesis of her unique work with women and dreaming.
If you are interested in dream work, I doubt that you'll
find a more original approach anywhere,and certainly you
won't find anything more readable, you won't want to put
it down. A beautiful gem, just like Connie.
