Expected by his enemies to die the miserable death of a military slave, Kaladin survived to be given command of the royal bodyguards, a controversial first for a low-status "darkeyes." Now he must protect the king and Dalinar from every common peril as well as the distinctly uncommon threat of the Assassin, all while secretly struggling to master remarkable new powers that are somehow linked to his honorspren, Syl. The Assassin, Szeth, is active again, murdering rulers all over the world of Roshar, using his baffling powers to thwart every bodyguard and elude all pursuers. Among his prime targets is Highprince Dalinar, widely considered the power behind the Alethi throne. His leading role in the war would seem reason enough, but the Assassin's master has much deeper motives. Brilliant but troubled Shallan strives along a parallel path. Despite being broken in ways she refuses to acknowledge, she bears a terrible burden: to somehow prevent the return of the legendary Voidbringers and the civilization-ending Desolation that will follow. The secrets she needs can be found at the Shattered Plains, but just arriving there proves more difficult than she could have imagined. Meanwhile, at the heart of the Shattered Plains, the Parshendi are making an epochal decision. Hard pressed by years of Alethi attacks, their numbers ever shrinking, they are convinced by their war leader, Eshonai, to risk everything on a desperate gamble with the very supernatural forces they once fled. The possible consequences for Parshendi and humans alike, indeed, for Roshar itself, are as dangerous as they are incalculable. The story continues in Words of Radiance: Part Two.

This landmark collection is the definitive introduction to the Buddha's teachings - in his own words. The American scholar-monk Bhikkhu Bodhi, whose voluminous translations have won widespread acclaim, here presents selected discourses of the Buddha from the Pali Canon, the earliest record of what the Buddha taught.

When the author began his Spiritual Journey through life he faced many things the average person does not. What he has written in this book is his testimony of that journey through his thoughts and reflections of those things he has experienced, studied and learned. This is not a pleasure cruise through airy-fairy land, because he takes his Metaphysics and Mysticism seriously. Though Christ oriented, this book is about more than simply the path of a typical Christian. Christ is a Reality now, a reality that has always been within every human heart, what George Fox, the founder of Quakerism called that of God within every person. In reading this book you will realize that Presence within yourself. You will laugh a little, cry a little and think a lot!

"…His radiance is like the sunlight; He has rays flashing from His hand…" (Habakkuk 3:4 NASB) Too many Christians assume that all will be fine when they "die and go to Heaven." But author and pastor Randy Dean, a modern-day firebrand for the Lord, aggressively refuses to settle for that way of thinking and living. From putting his arm around a hopeless person and giving hope to raising the dead, he is building an army to sweep across the land and shine its spiritual radiance on a dark and sleeping world. The transcendent nature of the Kingdom of God has a dynamic that naturally radiates God's presence and dominating power. Nature itself is agonizing in its wait for you to be radiant with this supreme energy in your very footsteps. -Randy Dean The authentically good news of the Kingdom of God is a transcendent supremacy - a living energy that by its sheer magnetism draws people into its healing force. God sent Jesus as His Radiance. You, too, can be radiant with a Spirit of an invulnerable, irresistible, and pervasive force. Back Dare to live an outrageously attractive lifestyle in every venue of our culture - you are the radiance of His glory!

"Christ The Redeemer" (Dedicated with love to the Brazilian people of the world) There's a voice in my heart A voice that guides you Purifies the darkness with beauty And new life This light in the forest. We are all natives. We are all human. My blood comes In the Amazon rain All the tears i have cried For you My beautiful ones. Inside the veins of the trees Is the wisdom to heal. Love each other-- I want the drug gangs To give up their weapons Find the Truth. There's a voice in my heart A voice that guides you. (c)2010 Copyright by Kassi Ydris. Written on Sunday, June 6th.

“During his retirement Imam Ali (AS) devoted himself to the study of the Master’s percepts by the light of reason. ‘But for his assassination,’ to quote the language of a French historian, ‘the Muslim world might have witnessed the realization of the Prophet’s teaching, in the actual amalgamation of Reason with Law, and the impersonation of the first principles of true philosophy in positive action.’ The same passionate devotion to knowledge and learning which distinguished the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) breathed in every word of his Disciple. With a liberality of mind-for beyond the age in which he lived-was joined a sincere devoutness of spirit and earnestness of faith. His sermons, faithfully preserved by one of his descendents, and his litanies or psalms, portray a devout up looking toward the Source of All Good, and an unbounded faith in humanity. The accession of the Umayyad to the ruler ship of Islam was a blow to the progress of knowledge and liberalism in the Muslim World. Their stormy reigns left the nation little leisure to devote to the gentler pursuits of science; and to this, among the sovereigns, was joined a characteristic idolatry of the past. Their thoughts were engrossed by war and politics. During the comparatively long rule of a century, the House of Umayyad produced only one man devoted to the cultivation of letters; and this man was Abu Hashim Khalid ibn Yezid-‘the philosopher of the Merwanian family’-as he has been called, who was set aside from the succession on account of his learning. The jealous suspicion and the untiring animosity of the children of Abu Sufian and Hind had obliged the decedents of the Holy Prophet (SAW) to live a life of humble retirement. ‘In the night of misery and unhappiness,’ they followed truly and faithfully the percepts of their ancestor, and found consolation in intellectual pursuits.” -Radiance of Vicegerency, p-185.

Journeys into Radiance is a compilation of messages that were telepathically received from the realms of light where the angels and the Ascended Masters dwell. The messages were received in a group setting where people came together to meditate and commune with the celestial realms. The focus of this activity was to be in service to God and the Divine Plan for planet earth. The information received was recorded and later transcribed for this book. All of those present could feel the infusion of Grace and Light that accompanies this work. It is hoped that all of those that read this book will receive of that Grace.

There are numerous books written about Jewish mysticism, kabbalah, and the Zohar (Book of Radiance). The Zohar is written in code through the use of symbolism, euphemisms, figures of speech, ancient phraseology, and the Hebrew Bible or Tenakh. Tenakh is an acronym formed from the initial Hebrew letters of Masoretic Text’s three traditional subdivisions (Torah - the Five Books of Moses, Nevi’im - Prophets, and Ketuvim - writings). Thanks to the incredible scholarship of Professor Daniel Matt from Berkeley California the codes of the Zohar have become more comprehensible to the inquisitive reader. It was because of Professor Matt’s translation, explanations, and notes on the Zohar in his first seven volumes that I was moved to write this book. ”The Zohar is firmly rooted in tradition but thrives on discovery.”

Ranging widely among Western scientific and analytic ideas and Eastern (Hindu and Buddhist) conceptions related to human consciousness, its nature, and origins, Combs (U. of North Carolina at Asheville) suggests that there is a lot less separating these seemingly incongruent ideas than we have previously thought. Throughout the discussion he clings to a process view of human consciousness that is consistent with his own background in chaos theory and the sciences of complexity.
