Golden Age, Golden Earth BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

For millions of years energy has been coming down from above to planet Earth, with the purpose of raising the frequencies of our planet. With the dawning of the Golden Age - which began with the end of the Mayan Calendar on the 21st December 2012 - and its Golden Energy, things are starting to change. The Golden Energy and its materialisation power have been hidden deep inside the Earth for millions of years, waiting for us humans to be ready to use them in a constructive and positive way, for the benefit of the Earth and of mankind. Planet Earth is the epicentre of the integration of all energies and knowledge coming from the other planets in our solar system. The time is now right for Earth itself to take on the responsibility for future development here - and this is where the Golden Energy will play a major role. By activating the Golden Energy, you will help contribute to the Whole in the way you were born to do, by successfully living out your life purpose on a daily basis, using your spirit energy. This book will give you essential new insight as to how you fit into the bigger picture. Scandinavian author, Anni Sennov, is highly clairvoyant on the spiritual level and she has, over the years, helped many spiritual seekers to find their different consciousness platforms in life, thanks to her books, courses, work-shops, lectures, transformational webinars and personal consultations. With this, her 22nd book, Anni Sennov welcomes you to the Golden Age, where you, with all your power, have an important contribution to make.

Future Orientation Springer, Berlin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

As early as infancy, humans orient themselves to the future and continue to do so throughout life. Although the capacity for orienting oneself to the future is innate and manifested in infancy, the forms, content, and developmental function of future orientation change with age. In adolescence, when youths start considering adult tasks with greater interest and earnestness, weighing options and making decisions, future orientation serves as a basis for setting goals, charting plans, and outlining one s future life course.Today, the majority of youths are undergoing a double transition by which their personal coming of age takes place in times of rapid social change, thereby leading to a growing disparity between parents and adolescents with regard to the nature of adult roles. In this way, understanding how adolescents interweave the paths they chart for themselves with the paths prescribed by their traditional communities is particularly important.Consequently, the purpose of this book is to outline the theoretical framework and examine empirical research on the construction of adolescents future orientation in cultural context, especially focusing on minority youths.Conceptually, future orientation interfaces three theoretical approaches:Self-theory, Goal theory, Identity formationLike self-theory, future orientation focuses on the subjective construction of the self; like goal theory, it is situated in the future; and like identity formation, it examines how adolescents and emerging adults deal with such questions as, What do I want to make of myself? (Erikson). It has common elements with agency, self-regulation, personal striving, and intentionality, thereby emphasizing the positive rather than negative aspect of adolescents development and behavior.In essence, future orientation pertains to mental processes underlying anticipation of prospective events. Although the behavioral indications of such processes can be identified in infancy (Haith), a core definition of future orientation that applies particularly to adolescents and adults emphasizes higher mental processes and describes it as the images individuals have regarding their future as self-constructed and consciously represented.Future-orientation research has addressed itself to the description of the prospective life space constructed by individuals belonging to different age, gender, and ethnic groups and to its explanation in terms of personality factors, interpersonal context, and cultural milieu. To employ Bronfenbrenner s terms, future-orientation research has evolved from social-address to person-process explanations. Like other aspects of psychological functioning, future orientation is the outcome of universal processes shaped by cultural patterns. Therefore, this book will examine the links between future orientation and personality, gender, family, and other close relationships as well as the affect of future orientation on developmental outcomes in their cultural context. These issues and the conceptualization of future orientation are discussed in the book chapters.

In 1987, when Bryan Parys was four years old, his father Alfred pressed record on a tape player next to his hospital bed. He began leaving messages for his wife, three children, and anyone who wanted to know why his terminal cancer at age thirty-eight wouldn't shake his faith. ""If God told me to walk into a fiery furnace, I'd do it,"" he said, perhaps knowing that he would not walk back out. In Wake, Sleeper, Parys tries to understand his father's deathbed fire in the context of a Christian childhood that taught him about eternity. Unspoken feelings of doubt lead Parys toward an inner life where he is allowed to question, provoke, and search for beauty in the void of grief. Through the lens of his upbringing in a Christian school and the church that met in the school gymnasium, that inner voice emerges in Wake, Sleeper. The grief of his past contrasts with the tension of his search to fit in, told as a lyrical and often humorous meditation on time. ""Wake, Sleeper is a compelling articulation of the depths of grief, faith, doubt, and reckoning . . . Parys's stylistic attention and willful experimentation define and honor the personal history he so deftly renders. Full of blistering disquiet and sincere affection, this fantastic debut begs us to keep our eyes open and rise up with it."" --Dave Harrity, author of Our Father in the Year of the Wolf ""Christian Wiman has written about 'trying to learn how to inhabit time so completely that there might be no distinction between life and belief, attention and devotion.' In these illuminating essays, Bryan Parys renders the vivid details of his coming of age in just such a spirit, and we are privileged to be alongside for the journey. [This] is an important debut and Parys a welcome new voice."" --Daniel Bowman Jr., author of A Plum Tree in Leatherstocking Country ""Wake, Sleeper is a brave, irreverent, funny and stunningly generous exploration of faith and resistance to it, of identity, of grief, of the joy of intellectual and spiritual inquiry. Parys's attention to the idiosyncrasies of language opens lines of thought that are at times profound and, at others, hilarious. This is an edgy, brilliant scouting of ancient geography by a young and highly gifted writer."" --Meredith Hall, author of the memoir Without a Map ""Many writers share their questions in order to offer their answers. But some writers, like Bryan Parys, live in the messiness of questions. Eschewing the temptations of certainty, Parys has created a gorgeous, searching work. Wake, Sleeper is a book of revelation."" --Chris Stedman, author of Faitheist: How an Atheist Found Common Ground with the Religious and Executive Director of the Yale Humanist Community Bryan Parys is a writer, editor, and teacher. His creative nonfiction work has appeared in Ruminate Magazine, Sojourners, and The Good Men Project, among others. He received his M.F.A. in creative nonfiction at the University of New Hampshire, is a writer at Berklee College of Music, and teaches writing on Boston's North Shore. This is his first book

Great Mirror of Male Love Stanford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The first complete translation of Nanshoku okagami by Ihara Saikaku (1642-93), this is a collection of 40 stories describing homosexual love affairs between samurai men and boys and between young kabuki actors and their middle-class patrons. Seventeenth-century Kyoto was the center of a flourishing publishing industry, and for the first time in Japan's history it became possible for writers to live exclusively on their earnings. Saikaku was the first to actually do so. As a popular writer, Saikaku wanted to entertain his readership. When he undertook the writing of Nanshoku okagami in 1687, it was with the express purpose of extending his readership and satisfying his ambition to be published in the three major cities of his day, Kyoto, Osaka, and Edo. He chose the topic of male homosexual love because it had the broadest appeal both to the samurai men of Edo and to the townsmen of Kyoto and Osaka, his regular audience. Homosexual relations between a man and a boy were a regular feature of premodern Japanese culture and carried no stigma. When a boy reached the age of nineteen, he underwent a coming-of-age ceremony, after which he took the adult role in relations with boys. The first twenty stories in Nansoku okagami feature boys from the samurai class whose lives exemplified the ideals of boy love; the second group of twenty stories shifts its focus to young kabuki actors who exemplified boy love in their own way, serving as prostitutes in the theater districts of the three major cities. The stories, which eschew the explicitly erotic, touch on many interesting aspects of life in premodern Japan, notably samurai connoisseurship of boy love, with its emphasis on loyalty between lover and beloved, the Buddhist tradition of love between priests and acolytes as a means of spiritual enlightenment, the life and pleasures of the urban classes, and the world of the kabuki theater.

Obelisk Wiley

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Nearly every empire worthy of the name--from ancient Rome to the United States--has sought an Egyptian obelisk to place in the center of a ceremonial space. Obelisks--giant standing stones, invented in Ancient Egypt as sacred objects--serve no practical purpose. For much of their history their inscriptions, in Egyptian hieroglyphics, were completely inscrutable. Yet over the centuries dozens of obelisks have made the voyage from Egypt to Rome, Constantinople, and Florence; to Paris, London, and New York. New obelisks and even obelisk-shaped buildings rose as well--the Washington Monument being a noted example. Obelisks, everyone seems to sense, connote some very special sort of power. This beautifully illustrated book traces the fate and many meanings of obelisks across nearly forty centuries--what they meant to the Egyptians, and how other cultures have borrowed, interpreted, understood, and misunderstood them through the years. In each culture obelisks have taken on new meanings and associations. To the Egyptians, the obelisk was the symbol of a pharaoh's right to rule and connection to the divine. In ancient Rome, obelisks were the embodiment of Rome's coming of age as an empire. To nineteenth-century New Yorkers, the obelisk in Central Park stood for their country's rejection of the trappings of empire just as it was itself beginning to acquire imperial power. And to a twentieth-century reader of Freud, the obelisk had anatomical and psychological connotations. The history of obelisks is a story of technical achievement, imperial conquest, Christian piety and triumphalism, egotism, scholarly brilliance, political hubris, bigoted nationalism, democratic self-assurance, Modernist austerity, and Hollywood kitsch--in short, the story of Western civilization.

The story of Cambridge is one of curious conflict: an unrelenting struggle for independence by a squalid fenland settlement, which entirely changed its purpose as, down the centuries, a great University grew in its midst. Yet it was this unwelcome intruder, seen today as an island of ancient glory in a surge of modern expansion, that makes the City of Cambridge known to the world. The coming of the "clerks"; the early hostels and colleges; the problem of the King's Ditch; the limitations of a medieval education, and of learning itself until recent years; the "rod" and its application; the tremendous religious emphasis, and compulsion, that endured until the last century; the dissolution of the religious houses; the Reformation and its martyrs; the threats to the University's very existence; Cambridge and Cromwell, himself a pensioner of Sidney Sussex; the seemingly unending strife between town and gown, and the hazardous office of Mayor; the unending procession of poets and scientists, headed by Milton and Newton, and of great men in every walk of life; the colleges, and their independence, in the modern age of reform, not least in architecture; and even the tidal phenomenon of the undergraduates' hair, once restricted by clerical tonsure; it is in terms of these factors, grave and gay, that the story of Cambridge is told.

Excerpt: Heath Andrew Ledger (4 April 1979 - 22 January 2008) was an Australian television and film actor.

Posthumously he shared the 2007 Independent Spirit Robert Altman Award with the rest of the ensemble cast, the director, and the casting director for the film I'm Not There, which was inspired by the life and songs of American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. In the film, Ledger portrayed a fictional actor named Robbie Clark, one of six characters embodying aspects of Dylan's life and persona. Ledger was nominated and won awards for his portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight, including the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, a Best Actor International Award at the 2008 Australian Film Institute Awards, for which he became the first actor to win an award posthumously, the 2008 Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award for Best Supporting Actor, the 2009 Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor and the 2009 BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actor.

This is a coming of age story both physcially and spiritually. It answers the question, what is my purpose in life, does it coincide with my dreams and how does God fit into it? This is a fictional story that mirrors the true experiences of young people and what they face growing up in the inner city. "Khia's voice is refreshing and unlike most of what's written. It sounds like she's on her way to become an overnight sensation, but then that's the dream. Yet the book provides enough sidenotes to suggest her path isn't going to be easy or clear. Lots of foreshadowing.There's a playfulness within Khia's heart that shines despite the death of her parents. Further, this book show her relationship to others in a way that tugs at heartstrings. The book creates unique characters in familiar settings, which makes it believable." TobyC

Ug and his parents are living in the Stone Age. And that means stone blankets, stone cold food, an even colder cave and, worst of all, hard stone trousers! Being an inquisitive and intelligent child, Ug suggests a series of modifications to improve the quality of family life. His ideas about heating, cooking, boats, and balls that actually bounce are met with a hostile reaction by his parents who don't know what he's going on about. Even Ug himself is occasionally unsure of the purpose of his inventions - his round stone that rolls down the hill is great, but what is it actually for? With the help of his father, who is slowly coming round to his son's way of thinking, Ug comes tantalisingly close to his ultimate garment goal, only to find that there are some obstacles even a boy genius can't overcome.
