A consultant to Jnana Yoga--the means of Silent Knowledge--by direct contemplation of the Unchangeable
• indicates that every thing in one’s physique, character, suggestions, stories, and studies has shape and is changeable and, hence, is neither crucial nor everlasting
• Identifies the witnessing attention within--all that is still while the ephemeral is eliminated--as the genuine Self, the single and basically unchanging everlasting Being
In The Yoga of Truth, Peter Marchand, via a chain of deceptively basic introspective questions, leads the seeker into discarding everything--body, character, strategies, stories, experiences--that disguises the ego’s relentless masquerade because the Self. this type of contemplation, with its consistent dedication to witnessing with out attachment, disempowers the ego’s fixation on its items, top in its place to the conclusion that the witnessing cognizance is, in reality, the only immutable Being inside of or without--the actual Self, the genuine You.
The common phantasm rests upon area and time, physique and parts, the existence strength, brain, mind, ego, and Self. Jnana Yoga finds not just the insubstantial and illusory nature of our presumptions but in addition our recurring dedication to the semblance of being a person that they bring. This phantasm collapses like a home of playing cards prior to direct inspection. whilst anything has shape, whilst it may switch, it can't be the everlasting with which we search union. Witnessing cognizance stands on my own as that that's with out shape. In The Yoga of Truth, Marchand leads us easily, and compellingly, to the reality of our nature and the peaceable bliss of real Being.

An exploration of the repressed, esoteric female mysteries within the Bible in the course of the lives of 4 girls, all archetypes of the sacred prostitute

• finds how the phobia of the facility of the sacred prostitute resulted in a rejection of woman sexuality and a damaging dualistic suggestion of fellows and women

In Feminine Mysteries within the Bible, Ruth Rusca unveils sacred mysteries of the female and the alchemical courting of the female and male forces on the center of the Judeo-Christian culture. Drawing on over 30 years of analysis, she explores 4 archetypal girls within the Bible: Tamar, the sacred prostitute; Rahab, the meretrix; Ruth, who redeems the soul; and Bathsheba, the daughter of the Goddess. those women--sacred prostitutes one and all--represent the indestructible female existence strength, the knowledge of the Goddess, and the transformative energy of the soul, they usually signify the 4 levels of the advance of soul cognizance.
