Wisdom of the Ages: A Modern Master Brings Eternal Truths Into Everyday Life

Wisdom of the Ages: A Modern Master Brings Eternal Truths Into Everyday Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"What do our ancestral scholars, whom we consider the wisest and most spiritually advanced, have to say to us today?"

The answer to this question posed by bestselling author Wayne W. Dyer lies in this powerful collection of writings, poems and phrases by some of the greatest thinkers of the past twenty-five centuries. In succinct original essays, Dr. Wayne Dyer sets out to explain the meaning and context of each piece of wisdom, and, most important, to explain how we can actively apply these teachings to our modern lives.

From ancestral masters including Buddha, Michelangelo, Rumi, Whitman, Jesus, Emily Dickinson, and Emerson, here are treasured passages on a variety of subjects, including solitude, time and passion. Among the contributions are words on inspiration from Pantanjali, author of the Hindu classic Yoga Sutras, teachings about the power of prayer from thirteenth century monk St. Francis of Assisi, and thoughts about the importance of action written by Mother Theresa.

The voices collected here cut across a wide range of historical eras and cultures, yet they communicate universal truths about the human experience.

Wisdom of the Ages provides us with a marvellous dual opportunity: to receive guidance from our great ancestors and to recognise our own potential for greatness.

"This book is not about appreciating poetry and philosophy as much as it is about applying the wisdom of these writers to our everyday lives. All the selections in this book convey messages from sensitive, highly creative, and productive individuals who were alive here at one time, just as you and I are today."

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

Synopsis:
