The Profile of a Wise Man

by Swami Suddhanada

Swamiji unfolds many facets of Wisdom like petals of a flower. Wisdom does not lie in searching for a wise man. Wisdom is when you stop blaming others for your problems. Wisdom is when we stop having double standards. Wisdom is becoming happiness. Wisdom is not searching for happiness in other things. A scientist in one who challenges the perception. If doubting the perception is the beginning of science, doubting the perceiver - I the individual, is the beginning of wisdom. Swamiji also explodes many common myths convincingly with sheer directness. Engineers do not know engineering, those who know engineering are engineers. You have a limitation but you are not limited. The body has no fear; body does not know; it has no sense of 'I'. A thought reminds you of the object but does not produce the object. The relevance of knowledge is facing life, not in keeping ideas in your head. Anytime you are with yourself you are happy. Whenever you are happy: unconsciously you are with yourself.

Stress Without Distress

by Hans Selye

STRESS IS NOT SOMETHING TO BE AVOIDED The only way to avoid stress would be to do nothing at all. Virtually all human activity involves stress--from a game of backgammon to a passionate embrace. But this can be defined as the stress of pleasure, challenge, fulfillment. What we all want is the right kind of stress for the right length of time--at a level that is best for us. Excessive or unvaried stress, particularly frustration, becomes distress. And this, in turn, can lead to ulcers, hypertension, and mental or physical breakdown. In this marvelously wise and helpful book, Dr. Hans Selye, the world's leading authority on stress, gives us his prescription for minimizing the psychic insults to the nervous system, mobilizing stress for creative and idealistic purposes, and enjoying a full life in harmony with the laws of Nature.

But a statistical analysis showed that when people retired at age 66 instead, their mortality rates dropped by 11%."

The Way of the Wound: A Spirituality of Trauma and Transformation

by Robert Grant

<p>Countless victims of childhood abuse, domestic violence, violent crime, rape, war, life-threatening illness and natural disaster struggle with the impact of their injuries. Former ways of making sense have been injured or destroyed. The lives of many are without meaning or direct. Unless helped to integrate the significance of their traumatic wounds into more comprehensive approaches to self, life and God victims run the risk of addiction, wasted potential, numerous psychological and physical problems, as well as commitments to distorted spiritualities. Victims of trauma are asked to embark on a path of healing that mystics, shamans and mythic heroes have been walking for thousands of years. The only difference is that the path is contemporary and, therefore, potentially more conscious. Trauma provides a modern access to this spiritual path and can initiate powerful experiences of conversion. If properly supported and accompanied trauma has the power to transform all facets of reality. <p><i>The Way of the Wound</i> lays out a path of healing, along with the central issues that survivors encounter at every crucial point along the way. This work offers direction to every victim of trauma wanting to move to the next level of healing. </p>

The Persecuted Drug: The Story of DMSO

by Pat Mcgrady

DMSO remains a truly amazing substance. It is a versatile solvent; it probably will dissolve more chemicals than any other solvent. It penetrates the skin and is in the bloodstream within seconds; and it carries many dissolved chemicals with it. It freezes at a couple of degrees below room temperature. As a runoff product of the paper industry, it is abundant and should be cheap. (With inflation and the middleman's profits, its price during the last half-dozen years has multiplied thirty fold. But considering its many uses, it still is cheap at the current $10 a pint.)
