    Presenting more than three hundred beautiful and inspirational works from all eras of Sufism, from thousand-year-old prayers to contemporary Sufi poetry, this beautiful collection embraces the full diversity of a rich tradition and reveals the heart of Islamic mysticism.

    Essential Sufism edited by Robert Frager and James Fadiman is an awesome compendium of spiritual wisdom from the mystical tradition of Sufism. Here is their introduction to the section on death from the chapter on transformation.

    "For Sufis death is not a transition; it is stepping across a threshold and being given another chance to reawaken. Life, as well, offers a spectrum of opportunities, that, if taken, allow one to recover awareness of one's full identity.

    "Huston Smith calls Sufis the 'impatient ones,' those who are not willing to wait to be reunited with Divinity at death but hunger for union now. 'Why the rush?' the rest of us might inquire. Who looks forward with equanimity to his or her own death?

    "If you accept the premise that life and death are both gifts, then the prospect of death can become more a source of wonder than a cause for fear.

    "It is especially hard for Americans to think in this way, because our culture is almost as phobic about death as that of ancient Egypt. Egyptians packed off their dead into tombs full of belongings, mummifying their dead to prevent physical decay. We do much the same, making our dead look as good or better than they did in life, then preserving their flesh in soft, padded containers as long-lasting and as secure as we can afford. In the face of culturally sanctioned denial, how can we possible see death as a gift?

    "There is a medieval Christian mystery play in which the lead character asks who will come with him into the grave to support him at his last judgment.

    " 'Not I,' said his friends.
    " 'Not I,' said his children.
    " 'Not I,' said his wife.
    " 'Not I,' said his priest.
    " 'Not I,' said his fields of grain, his cattle and his sheep, his gold and all his treasures.
    " 'I will stay with you,' said his Actions, upon which they leapt into the grave to be by his side. Arm in arm, they knocked at the door of death — together.'

    "What do you take with you into the city of death? Not a suitcase, not a purse, not even the pictures in your wallet. You never see a hearse followed by a moving van. Nothing goes with you except the sum of what your life has been.

    "A Sufi teaching says, 'Die before you die.' One interpretation is that you should strive to learn what you would be shown at death while you still have time to make use of this knowledge, that is, while still alive in a body. The wisdom we achieve on death reveals the true value of what is important and what is not. How much richer life becomes if we are able to gain this perspective beforehand." MsSVig

    The 26 Keys:




    The Magic of the Astral Light




    by David Coleman






    This book presents a new and yet very ancient approach to astrology. Unlike the vast numbers of 'how to do astrology' books that have already been written, the course in this book is not merely an intellectual journey, but one which embraces the whole being in a dynamic magical interaction... Instead of being told about the influences over your life shown in a chart and having them described to you, this book enables you to actually experience the meaning of astrological influences for yourself and encourages you to draw your own conclusions. Within the pages of this book you will find all you need to begin exploring the Astral Light.

    Mermaids, Sylphs,




    Gnomes, and Salamanders:




    Dialogues with the Kings




    and Queens of Nature




    by William R. Mistele






    Although the spirit beings of the four elements of nature have been represented in literature, religion, and folk tales, descriptions of these creatures have been vague, and direct experience with them is quite rare. Yet each of the four elemental kingdoms offers great gifts to humanity, if we are willing to recognize that the psychological and spiritual qualities they embody are already inherent in human nature.

    Mermaids dwell in the oceans, lakes, and rivers. They offer love and sharing, a sense of wonder, beauty, and innocence. Sylphs roam the sky; they represent harmony, balance, and the attainment of freedom. Gnomes live underground. Their quiet inner wisdom banishes depression and sorrow. Salamanders dwell in volcanoes and vast caverns of magma beneath the earth. They offer the power of intense heat to refine, transform, and integrate. Who are these mysterious creatures of water, air, earth, and fire? Author William Mistele has devoted a significant portion of his life to finding out.

    Addressing the perennial questions Why are we here? What is the deepest purpose of life? What are our options?, Mermaids, Sylphs, Gnomes, and Salamanders takes the reader directly into the realms of these spirits, telling stories from their perspective. Weaving together fairy tales and poems, thoughtful analysis, and meditative exercises, Mistele illuminates the qualities these beings have mastered and humanity must begin to embrace: empathy, an inner peace with the universe, a divine level of sensuality, and a love that is everywhere in every moment.

    Undines:




    Lessons from the Realm





    of the Water Spirits




    by William R. Mistele






    Undines—from the Latin root unda, which means “wave”— are water elementals, or spirits of the water world. Like their fellow elementals—salamanders (fire), sylphs (air), and gnomes (earth)—undines are united with, and personify, their element. First mentioned in the alchemical works of medieval botanist Paracelsus, undines appear throughout European folklore. Who are these mysterious creatures of lakes, oceans, and waterfalls?

    Undines takes readers directly into the water spirits’ realm through stories, personal encounters, and interviews with such luminaries as Istiphul, the undine queen whose presence embodies the magical essence of the feminine. Whether seen as fact or fairy tale, Undines presents archetypal truths and insights into human nature. The powers and abilities that undines display are latent in us all and crucial to humanity’s evolution (or mere survival): harmony with nature, empathy and compassion, a deep capacity to love, and a cooperative rather than combative relationship to the world. Undines will appeal broadly to readers of mythology, fantasy, and fairy tales, particularly to practitioners that work with nature spirits and elemental beings—Druids, Wiccans, pagans, and those interested in magic and mysticism.

    Includes texts in Chinese, Pali, and Sanskrit.


    The process of translation is one of the important media through which Buddhism, and particularly Buddhist ideas, migrate from place to place. But translation can never be simply loyal transmission; it is rather an exercise in understnading and interpretation. Sometimes that understanding, or its communication, can go astray. In this paper I examine one set of cases in which we confront a translation difficult to understand, but one which may, in the end, help us understand something about the process of early Chinese understandings of Indian Buddhism.

    Jonathan A. Silk (1960) studied East Asian Studies at the Oberlin College in Ohio and subsequently Buddhist Studies at the University of Michigan. At the latter university he obtained his PhD in 1994 with the thesis: The Origins and Early History of the Mahāratnakūţa Tradition of Mahāyāna Buddhism, With a Study of the Ratnarāśisūtra and Related Materials.

    During his studies, Silk spent several years in Japan supported by various grants. After his PhD, Silk became Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at the Grinnell College in Iowa and in 1995 at the Department of Comparative Religion of the Western Michigan University. Since 2002 he occupied the same position at the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). There, Silk has been director of the South & Southeast Asian Languages Program. Silk received several awards during and after his studies, and occupied a fellowship six times, the last one at Yale University. MsSVig

    Conversations With God (Trilogy)- Neale Donald Walsch (.pdf, .doc, .epub formats)

    This is the complete 3 volume set that's been floating around on the internet for a few years now. It has been completely re-formatted to make it easier to read than the versions freely available.

                                                     1. We are all one.
                                                     2. There's enough.
                                                     3. There's nothing we have to do.
                                                     4. Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way.

                                                     The living of these four sentences could change the world."

    "Married and divorced four times, unable to stick to any career and recovering from a broken neck after a car accident, Walsch was in deep despair when he awoke in the middle of the night and put pen to paper: “What does it take to make life work?” he asked.

    The question was directed to God.  God answered.

    The brashness of Walsch’s claim is that he’s talking to God, not about God. After scribbling his urgent question, Walsch says, he heard a warm and loving voice that gave him an answer to that and multiple other questions. He’s likened the process to 'taking dictation.'

    All of his books - typically found in bookstores’ metaphysics or Spirituality section - follow the same question-and-answer, give-and-take format between Walsch and God. They touch on hundreds of different topics, from sin to sex to salvation.

                                                     It is clear that the 'god' who speaks to Walsch is not the God of the Bible.

    "Walsch says God spoke to him in the middle of the night and that he began writing down notes on a yellow legal pad.  Walsch concludes that there is no good and evil, no right or wrong and that even Hitler went to heaven."

    "Q. In reading the first 'Conversations with God,' I recognized much from James Redfield, Marianne Williamson, Wayne Dyer and other authors. I could imagine some people saying you simply adapted their materials, then added your own.

    A. They're right. Marianne and James Redfield got it from God, too. It's not unusual that we say the same thing. And I wouldn't be surprised if some priest said, "Hell, that's what I told him in a sermon as a boy." God made it clear that he has been teaching me all along.

    Q. Are we all gods? Or all part of God? Or are we all collectively God?

    A. Yes, to all of the above."

    Communion with God - Neale Donald Walsch (.pdf, .doc, .epub formats)

    Here's another book by Neale Donald Walsch that does a superb job of explaining how myth and belief structures across the centuries have supported and fostered the illusion of reality we now experience and create, and why the illusions of relativity are necessary for the absolute to experience reality. (It also has been reformatted for easier reading.)

    In human experience, all things are considered within the context of what you think you already understand. You cannot help but do this. You know no other way to proceed.

    Put another way, you are looking at the illusion from within the Illusion. (A fish doesn't know it lives in water until it's out of it!)

    Once you understand the structure of illusion, you will then be able to use the Illusion as it was intended to be used, as a tool with which to experience the Ultimate Reality.

    As you become aware of creating the illusion, you will cause it to be what you wish it to be, rather than simply watching it present itself as you think that it has to be.

    Enjoy the read.

    "The Conversations with God series are some of my favorite books. They form the backbone of my current spiritual outlook, and I find myself continually referencing them whenever I feel lost. Very helpful. That being said, this book is one that I have tried to begin a number of times and failed to get through it. I kept getting lost in the language, not understanding. This time though, I couldn’t put it down. This book proves that sometimes the timing on a book is what makes it truly moving to you. I recommend this series to anyone, but I also preface that “mine is not a better way, it is just another way.” ~ Erinina Marie May, 2007

    "This book makes so much sense and is so empowering. It places the human condition into clear perspective and provides common sense tools that can be used to achieve new states of being and greater consciousness. When I read Communion with God, I experienced a sense of remembering. The book reminded me of things I have always known but had clearly forgotten. It was like coming home." ~ Michele Harvey Feb, 2012

    "A stand-alone title to complement Walsch's bestselling Conversations with God series, this too-general spirituality manifesto borrows from most major religions while chastising all of them for their judgmentalism, with Christianity getting the harshest treatment.  Walsch continues his tradition of writing in the first person as God, but this time there is no human counterbalance, making this no longer a conversation so much as a prophetic indictment.

    He begins by describing the "ten illusions of man" that have been perpetuated in unhelpful "cultural stories" i.e., Biblical stories and then helps readers understand and use these illusions in an effort to make their own realities.  Walsch reassures readers that such things as failure, requirement and ignorance do not actually exist, but are among the ten illusions. We are part of God, he explains, and since God is perfect, so are we.

    Walsch seems to believe that his ideas are groundbreaking, but they are garden-variety New Thought concepts adapted for a repackage. His once-innovative technique of writing in the voice of God has also lost its luster; God's prose is having an off day, as evidenced by Walsh's predilection for sentence fragments and stream-of-consciousness thought patterns." ~ (Oct.)

    The Golden Ratio, Pi, Phi, the Fibonacci Series, fractals, Squaring the Circle -- these are only some examples of how the underlying mathematics of existence bring order and beauty to our experience. Throughout history, sacred geometry has been expressed in music, architecture, meditation, painting, and observed in the natural world. Once you become aware of them, the principles of sacred geometry can be seen and used in a vast number of ways. Today it can be applied to the digital space through concepts of elegant design in programming, magical experience design in the event space, and web architecture designed to mirror natural ratios.


    Join Reality Sandwich's David Metcalfe for a special five-session webinar, Sacred Geometry Explained: How the Hidden Order of the Universe Can Enhance Your Life. Explore the geometry of the ancients, and revive integral theories and practices that open you to a wider vision of reality.

    Olivier Clerc s’est passionné très tôt pour la philosophie, les capacités du cerveau et la conscience. Il rédige à 21 ans un premier livre sur le rêve lucide (Vivre ses rêves : comment programmer ses rêves et induire des rêves lucides, Hélios, 1984).

    Pour compenser la pensée analytique dominante du cerveau gauche, Olivier Clerc développe une pensée analogique qui stimule le cerveau droit et recrée du lien et du sens. Sa façon de travailler avec les métaphores permet tantôt d'utiliser des images et analogies puissantes pour illustrer des phénomènes qui échappent à nos sens et à notre conscience, tantôt d'observer l'intelligence à l'œuvre dans toute la nature et d'en distiller des lois et principes que nous pouvons appliquer dans notre vie.

    To compensate for the dominant left brain analytical thinking, Olivier Clerc develops analogical thinking that stimulates the right brain and recreates the connection and meaning. His way of working with metaphors can sometimes use images and powerful analogies to illustrate phenomena that are beyond our senses and our consciousness, sometimes to observe the intelligence at work in all nature and in distilling laws and principles that we can apply in our lives.

    Kabbalah of the Soul:

    The Transformative Psychology and Practices of Jewish Mysticism


    Leonora Leet





    Reveals the transformative spiritual work by which the soul can reach ever higher dimensions of consciousness.


    • Relates the soul levels of the Zohar to the various paths the soul may travel toward ultimate realization.


    • Introduces a new meditative technique called "the Transformative Moment".


    Throughout the history of the Jewish esoteric tradition, humankind has been understood to play a pivotal role in the perfection of the cosmos, uniting the finite with the infinite in the perfection of divine personality. Working from an original synthesis of the major kabbalistic traditions of cosmology derived from the Bible, the Zohar, and the school of Isaac Luria, Leonora Leet has erected a new framework for understanding the mechanism of the transformative spiritual work that enables the human soul to reach increasingly higher dimensions of consciousness. This analysis extends the frontiers of Leet's prior works on the Kabbalah to provide a new illumination of human possibilities.

    Leet first considers the false temptations of worldly power and pleasure that lead to the fall of the soul and then the means of its redemption. She develops a powerful meditative technique called "the Transformative Moment," whose workings are exemplified by Jacob and Joseph and that allow the individual to progress through all the higher levels of the soul, even possibly to attain the miraculous powers of the legendary spiritual masters. She further correlates the hierarchy of soul levels with Ezekiel's Throne vision to show the various paths the soul may travel toward self-realization: sex, love, power, knowledge, holiness, and unification. The first four paths relate to the four-faced living creatures (Chayot) of Ezekiel's Throne vision--the bull-ox, lion, eagle, and man. The final two paths correlate to the prophet and the envisioned man on the throne he recognizes to be his divine higher self, the knowledge that defines the secret doctrine of the whole of the Jewish mystical tradition culminating in the Kabbalah.
