Spirit Recovery Medicine Bag: A Transformational Guide for Living Happy, Joyous, and Free by Lee Mccormick
Spirit Recovery Medicine Bag: A Transformational Guide for Living Happy, Joyous, and Free

New Connexion , October 30, 2014

The integration of the backgrounds of the two authors into the book really makes Spirit Recovery Medicine Bag an interesting read. Lee McCormick, founder of The Ranch Recovery Center in Tennessee and a recovered addict, along with Mary Faulkner’s rich background in spirituality and recovery bring a certain realness to the book. McCormick openly reveals the destructive behaviors that lead to realizations regarding his addictions and subsequent decision to go into treatment. After finding himself clean, Lee fearlessly starts to explore other ways to be present in his own life. This practical guide supports readers who make the decision to create a new “story” for themselves. Those seeking this guidance don’t necessary have to come from a background of addiction to substances. It assists those with self-negating behaviors as well using teachings from traditional psychology, Native American traditions, ancient Vedic tenets, 12-step stories, quantum spirituality and folk wisdom. The authors believe that “spirituality is about discovering your truth and the creative expression of that truth -- or finding your thing and doing it.”

Judas of Nazareth: How the Greatest Teacher of First-Century Israel Was Replaced by a Literary Creation by Daniel T. Unterbrink
Judas of Nazareth: How the Greatest Teacher of First-Century Israel Was Replaced by a Literary Creation

New Connexion , October 30, 2014

What if Jesus of the Bible is really a composite character, a blend of several anti-Roman movement leaders of the time? Retired forensic auditor Daniel T. Unterbrink approaches this question like the trained investigator he is. Using his considerable analytical skills, he challenges the historical origins of Christianity. Using data gathered from historical writings and analysis of a myriad of Jewish political-religious movements, he theorizes that Jesus never existed as one man. Instead, he is a literary composite of figures who led several anti-Roman movements. What we think we know about Jesus is from sources who never met him in person and fictional stories created by Paul of Tarsus. Judas of Nazareth is a good read for anyone who loves both history and mystery. Unterbrink examines what is the known history of the time, confirmed writings and anecdotal evidence of disagreements between Paul, Peter and James over the tenets of the “fledgling gentile religion.” This book is a statistically detailed approach to a question that may never be answered. But perhaps Unterbrink has come closer to the truth than ever before.

Rumi: Soul Fury: Rumi and Shams Tabriz on Friendship by Coleman Barks
Rumi: Soul Fury: Rumi and Shams Tabriz on Friendship

New Connexion , October 30, 2014

In the 13th century, the Sufi poet Rumi befriended a mysterious wanderer named Shams Tabriz. Perhaps the central event in Rumi’s life, this relationship fueled many creative endeavors -- including a provocative and groundbreaking series of poems reflecting on the numerous meanings of friendship and love. These poems, rich in beauty and spiritual insight, make up the first half of the stunning new collection Rumi: Soul Fury. Compiled by renowned Rumi translator Coleman Barks, these translations capture the raw power of Rumi’s words and convey his universal celebration of love in its most meaningful form. The second half of the book is composed of the sayings of Shams Tabriz, which are expressed with an ornery and fierce intensity. It is a form of expression that is honest, clear and immediate, and coined by Barks as “soul fury.” Shams heals with “bitter medicine,” while Rumi is kind and gentle in his teachings. Rumi: Soul Fury shines an insistent and brilliant light on how friendship and love can transform your life.

The Self-Actualizing Cosmos: The Akasha Revolution in Science and Human Consciousness by Ervin Laszlo
The Self-Actualizing Cosmos: The Akasha Revolution in Science and Human Consciousness

New Connexion , October 30, 2014

Ervin Laszlo, a systems scientist and integral theorist who was twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, has authored more than 75 books (and published more than 400 articles and research papers). Given all that, his most recent book, The Self-Actualizing Cosmos: The Akasha Revolution in Science and Human Consciousness, is quite accessible to non-scientifically inclined readers. The book details the implications of this new paradigm in helping us understand our world, consciousness, the evolution of the universe and our significant place in the bigger picture. Creative thought leaders in philosophy, science, the media, the healing arts and practical activism further expand on how the new Akasha paradigm affects all aspects of life. The phrase “we are all one” is heard a lot today, and a revolutionary shift is underway in the scientific community in exploring human consciousness. The Self-Actualizing Cosmos reframes our understanding of our collective existence.
