PRIMAL RELIGIONS, PRIMAL PASSIONS: An excerpt from AND LIVE REJOICING by Huston Smith
By Publicity Admin

Spiritual trailblazer Huston Smith, who passed away on Friday, December 30, 2016 at age 97, was a preeminent teacher of world religions. 

He wrote comprehensive books about religion and memoirs of his own life, but nowhere did he merge the two elements of seeking and experience with such storytelling flair as he did in And Live Rejoicing, a book that New World Library is proud to have published. 

We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt from the book, in which Huston discusses Native Americans and indigenous cultures. May he rest in peace.

HOW TO STOP THE CYCLE OF DOUBTING YOURSELF, QUITTING, AND LOOKING FOR A MAGICAL SOLUTION by guest blogger Jennifer Louden, author of THE LIFE ORGANIZER
By Publicity Admin

I can’t stand it anymore! Too many amazingly talented women whose gifts the world desperately needs are stuck in a debilitating cycle of self-doubt, quitting, then looking for a magic solution. It’s keeping too many of us from getting what we most want. It’s blocking us from creating the impact, satisfaction, and happiness that we crave — and the world so needs!

It drives me batty. Batty!

And I understand this cycle and know it all too well. I wasted too many years and too much money doubting myself and looking for someone to tell me what to do.

It is a mission of mine to help stop this cycle FOREVER.

Hope and Fear: An excerpt from THE ACTIVIST’S TAO TE CHING by William Martin
By Publicity Admin

In these challenging times, the need for activism is greater than ever before. William Martin, author of The Activist’s Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for a Modern Revolution, writes, “We have learned the secret of transformation: Injustice feeds our determination. Hate increases our love. Wounds bring forth our healing, and fear uncovers our courage and serenity.”

We hope you’ll take a quiet moment to read this excerpt from The Activist’s Tao Te Ching:

Both hope and fear are hollow companions.
Each will trigger anxious thoughts.
If hope and fear drive us,
our actions will be built on unstable ground.
We will always second-guess our moves,
looking over our shoulder, fearful
even of our friends,
squabbling among ourselves,
blaming and praising in a futile attempt
to control people and events.

DISCOVER THE LIFE YOU WERE MEANT TO LIVE by guest blogger Chetan Parkyn, author of THE BOOK OF DESTINIES
By Publicity Admin

I can remember quite clearly a moment in my life when I realized nothing made sense to me, that everything I had done and was doing seemed out of tune, even meaningless. I was sitting alone at a campfire in the shelter of a small group of pine trees in the highlands of Kenya, enjoying the first opportunity to be by myself in over a year. My father had died eighteen months before, and I knew I had not come to terms with his passing, especially considering how I had busied myself in all kinds of intense activities to avoid acknowledging my thoughts and feelings. In the light of his passing and reflection on the life he had lived, I had not stopped to reconsider what was important to me and what I really wanted to achieve in my own life.

In such a state of feeling lost, I was very fortunate soon afterward to be guided to someone, in India, who could look deeply into my life and tell me about it from a purely objective point of view. Do you know those times when you hear something that resonates deeply within you and yet you cannot altogether explain how or why it does? And how, after receiving such insight, it is impossible to go back to an old way of doing things because your perspective has completely changed?
