The Hero with a Thousand Faces PDF Summary

The Hero with a Thousand Faces PDFQuick: what do Osiris, Prometheus, Buddha, Mohammed, Jesus, King Arthur, Luke Skywalker, Frodo and Harry Potter have in common?

Answer: Everything.

They are all variants of the same story.

Joseph Campbell has all the details.

And he shares them under a beautiful and fairly suggestive title: “The Hero with a Thousand Faces.”

Who Should Read “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”? And Why?

“The Hero with a Thousand Faces” combines Joseph Campbell’s revolutionary understanding of mythology with Jungian psychology in a way which makes both of them not just comprehensible, but also irresistibly alluring.

However, even more than people involved or attracted by either discipline, the book should interest novelists and screenwriters, since Campbell breaks down the universal myth of the hero in a way which makes his scheme usable as the background for almost any work of art.

Don’t believe us?

George Lucas used Campbell’s scheme to write “Star Wars.”

About Joseph Campbell

Joseph CampbellJoseph Campbell was an American mythologist and author.

Born in New York City in 1904, he was educated at Columbia University in medieval literature, before continuing his studies in Europe, Paris, and Munich specifically.

Here, influenced by the work of Freud and Jung, the art of Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, and the literary works of James Joyce and Thomas Mann, Campbell developed an interest to pursue the study of Sanskrit and Modern Art, something which his alma mater rejected.

Even though this meant that he would never obtain a Ph.D., in 1934, he became a Professor of Literature at Sarah Lawrence College, a position which he held for the next 38 years, until 1972.

He died fifteen years later, just a few months after completing the widely revered series of interviews with Bill Moyers, “The Power of Myth.”

“The Hero with a Thousand Faces PDF Summary”

The basic premise of “The Hero with a Thousand Faces” is remarkably simple: every important myth you can think of shares the same fundamental structure.

And the reason why this shouldn’t strike anybody as odd or fascinating is even simpler: myths are manifestations of humanity’s deepest (and, thus, usually unconscious) urges and needs, fears and desires.

And since humans everywhere share the same psychology, the myths of many cultures through many different times must be the same as well.

Of course, it’s easy to say such a thing and much more difficult to prove it.

Hence, “The Hero with a Thousand Faces,” which not only lays out the structure of the monomyth (in its first part) and the cosmogonic cycle (in its second part) but also offers hundreds of different examples from hundreds of different cultures as evidence to back the scheme.

Since the first part is the much more interesting and influential part of the book – borrowed from Joyce, “monomyth” is Campbell’s term for the underlying scheme of the hero’s adventure – we’ll leave the cosmogonic cycle out of our discussion for now, and, hopefully, extend our summary in the recent future.

Let’s begin with Campbell’s summary of the basic structure of the hero’s journey:

The usual hero adventure begins with someone from whom something has been taken, or who feels there is something lacking in the normal experience available or permitted to the members of society. The person then takes off on a series of adventures beyond the ordinary, either to recover what has been lost or to discover some life-giving elixir. It’s usually a cycle, a coming and a returning.

These – the taking off, the adventures, and the returning – are the three main stages of the hero’s journey, and Campbell dedicates a chapter to each; each of these chapters is further divided into several sections outlining different phases of that respective stage.

Nicely illustrated, the hero’s cycle looks like this:

The Hero with a Thousand Faces Summary

Of course, not all heroes pass through all stages (in fact, a hero rarely does), but there is basically no myth of a hero which includes an episode that won’t fit into Campbell’s beautiful scheme.

Here’s what it says, broken down, section by section:

#1. DEPARTURE

A hero’s journey starts with a call to adventure: the hero is summoned by someone to venture from his normal world into the world of the unknown for one of many different reasons.

Sometimes, this call is just too strange or dangerous or ethically problematic, so the hero refuses the call. However, after some hesitation and in the presence of just enough evidence (say, Hamlet seeing the Ghost of his Father), the hero eventually agrees.

Once he/she embarks on the adventure, his supernatural aid – the mentor – appears or becomes known to him.

With the help of his aid’s advices or magical talismans, the hero is able to cross the first threshold and finally enter the unknown, the field where the laws of the normal world don’t apply anymore (aka: “that creature was actually a vampire!”)

A minor setback or danger may appear at this stage, such as Jonah – or Geppetto – ending up in the belly of the whale.

OK – not that minor in real-life terms.

#2. INITIATION

But that’s when the real adventure commences!

The Hero is now in a world of “monsters,” treading the road of trials. After several heroic endeavors, he encounters the goddess or the temptress – either way, the woman who will make or break him (remember Gilgamesh?)

Now, comes the center point of the journey: the hero meets the person/figure which holds the ultimate power over his identity or life. Campbell calls this stage the atonement with the father which means that if you had known the contents of “The Hero with a Thousand Faces” and taken it literally before watching “Star Wars,” you would have guessed one of the most famous twists in cinematic history!

Apotheosis is an Ancient Greek word meaning deification, which makes this stage self-explanatory.

The ultimate boon is the goal of the quest: the thing due to which the hero’s journey started in the first place. It can be the Holy Grail or the elixir of life – or just some type of knowledge. But once the hero obtains it, the journey is complete.

Time for coming back.

#3. RETURN

Sometimes, however, the hero may refuse to return: the grass is greener on the other side for me, he thinks, so who cares about the people awaiting the boon.

And sometimes, returning from a journey may be just as difficult as going on one: so, at this stage, the hero must perform the magic flight.

If it doesn’t go well – say, he is wounded or weakened – he may need to be rescued from without by a supernatural aid, a beloved person, or a completely unassuming figure.

Next follows the crossing of the return threshold after which the hero usually shares his boon with his original community.

Now, he is the master of two worlds, both his brutal physical force and his inner spiritual understanding of what it means to live in a human society.

In some cases, he makes one more step upward, achieving the freedom to live by the total annihilation of his former fear of death.

Key Lessons from “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”

1.      All Heroes are the Same
2.      The Basic Structure of the Monomyth
3.      Why All of This Matters

All Heroes are the Same

The main thesis of “The Hero with a Thousand Faces” is there in the book’s title: Osiris and Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad, Luke Skywalker and Harry Potter are all just different manifestation of the same character, the Archetypal Hero.

The Basic Structure of the Monomyth

The universal pattern of the hero’s journey – the monomyth – can be summarized, in Campbell’s words, thus:

A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered, and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.

Why All of This Matters

Because, to quote Campbell, even though “there are of course differences between the numerous mythologies and religions of mankind,” once the similarities are understood, “the differences will be found to be much less great than is popularly (and politically) supposed.”

Campbell’s hope?

Unification in the sense of mutual human understanding.

Our Critical Review

Soon after the release of the first “Star Wars” film in 1977, George Lucas stated that his script was influenced in large part by “The Hero with a Thousand Faces.”

Since then, numerous different authors have used the same recipe to recreate the story of the hero, in more than one way, in more than one medium.

“Indiana Jones,” and “The Matrix,” “The Beauty and the Beast” and “Lion King,” “Community” and “Lost” – they all owe their structure to Campbell’s monomyth.

Just a few reasons to consider “The Hero with a Thousand Faces” one of the best nonfiction books of all time!

Ask, Believe, Receive PDF Summary

Ask, Believe, Receive PDF7 Days to Increased Wealth, Better Relationships, and a Life You Love (…Even When It Seems Impossible)

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Jesus said that.

And in “Ask, Believe, Receive” David Hooper has transformed this philosophy into a step-by-step manual for a perfect life.

Who Should Read “Ask, Believe, Receive”? And Why?

If you’ve ever read “The Secret” but are unable to apply its philosophy in a simple, day-to-day manner, this book will come to you very handy.

Especially if you’re interested in changing your life in one of these five spheres: money, relationships, health, employment, and business.

The best part?

You can read this book even if you haven’t read “The Secret” before.

About David Hooper

David Hooper is a musician turned music marketer and author.

He hosts RED: The Marketing Podcast for Experts and has a podcast about marketing via podcasts called Big Podcasts Daily.

Hooper has written several books, of which “Six-Figure Musician” and “The Rich Switch” are the most famous ones.

“Ask, Believe, Receive PDF Summary”

When David Hooper was in high school, a friend of his grandfather gave him a copy of “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen.

A few years later, he came across some old recordings by Earl Nightingale which inspired him to start looking for motivational books similar to “The Strangest Secret.”

Nowadays, he doesn’t believe these two events were mere coincidences.

But that it was the Universe showing him the guideposts on his path toward self-discovery.

Which is why what happened next turned out to be the final piece of the puzzle: in 2006, Hooper had an opportunity to see the film “The Secret,” and he saw it “in the right place, at the right time, with the right material”!

And it all made sense!

In Hooper’s opinion,

The Secret’ exposed the world to the Law of Attraction in ways James Allen, Earl Nightingale, and others hadn’t. It reached millions of people, many who would never set foot in a metaphysical bookstore or New Thought church.

“Ask, Believe, Receive” is intended as a practical supplement to Rhonda Byrne’s extremely popular book, one which – in Hooper’s opinion – “The Secret” wouldn’t have even needed if it wasn’t for all the misinformation surrounding the Law of Attraction today.

It’s a “step-by-step formula, actually five of them, to help you achieve what you want in specific areas of your life – money, relationships, health, employment, and business.”

Each of these formulas is divided into seven steps, so the subtitle is not a clickbait: David Hooper actually believes that his book can transform five important aspects of your life for the better – if not for the best – in no more than a week!

And he believes in this so much that he isn’t even interested in earning money from it: just like all of his previous books, he has made “Ask, Believe, Receive” freely available as an audiobook at YouTube.

Here’s, for example, Day 1 of “How to Attract Ideal Relationship”:

We weren’t able to locate a playlist of the book, but you can find all of the chapters on David’s channel here.

And we highly encourage you to listen to them all – or, at least the ones you’re most interested in – and start applying the Law of Attraction to your life as early as today!

For our summary, we’ve decided to summarize the 3 steps of the title, i.e., the 3 steps you need to follow to activate the Law of Attraction in any sphere of your life.

Step #1: ASK

The first step to activate the Law of Attraction: asking.

But not asking as in “I want a lot of money.”

Asking as in “By the end of this year, I want to find a fun and fulfilling job as a _____________ in a company located in _____________, which will earn me about $_____________ a month.”

And even more specific than that!

Why?

Let us answer you this question with a question of our own: what are the chances that you are going to get the meal you really like if you tell to the waiter at a restaurant “Give me something good to eat”?

Well, consider the Universe your waiter!

In other words: be specific, be polite, and ask what you want out loud.

You can even write it down or create a vision board.

Anything will do as long as the message is clear and passed on.

Best practice: visualize your goal daily, for one or two sessions of 15 minutes each!

Step #2: BELIEVE

Even though it seems straightforward on paper, this – says David Hooper – is the trickiest and “most challenging” of all three steps.

Why?

Because merely asking something from the Universe will amount to nothing if deep down inside your heart, you’re still plagued by these two limiting beliefs.

Limiting belief 1: not believing that you deserve something.

You do – and you have to tell yourself that you do on a daily basis.

It’s as simple as that: unless they hurt someone, we all deserve to see our wishes fulfilled during our lifetimes.

So, do yourself a favor and rebuild your life on the pillars of self-esteem.

You deserve it.

Limiting belief 2: not believing it is possible to have what you want.

This is a common mistake many people make.

How does it work?

Say you want to have a million dollars. The only way you think you can get it is by winning the lottery. So, you focus all your energy on guessing those magic numbers, and, in time, you realize that this is improbable.

So, you start thinking that you’ll never get your million dollars.

However, you’ve forgotten the most important lesson: the universe has unlimited resources.

So, keep an open mind!

The Universe will do the rest.

Step #3: RECEIVE

However, be aware that you’ll only be able to receive your gift after letting go of any emotional attachment to your present or future state.

This could mean being impatient, desperate, angry, sad, mad, frustrated, afraid.

The only state the Universe understands is the state of allowing which, in the words of Hooper, “actually means to be in a state of non-resistance.”

A good way to let everything go and reach the state of allowing is to spend some time lying quietly in meditation.

Key Lessons from “Ask, Believe, Receive”

1.      How Does the Law of Attraction Work?
2.      Ask, Believe, Receive
3.      The Power of Affirmations

How Does the Law of Attraction Work?

But, isn’t this all just some New Age mumbo-jumbo?

Is there some scientific basis for the Law of Attraction?

Well, according to David Hooper, there is:

Here’s how it works: Your thoughts trigger your emotions. Your emotional state emits a specific ‘frequency’ of energy to the universe. In turn, the universe returns events and experiences into your life that correspond with your emotional frequency.

Ask, Believe, Receive

The three steps which activate the Law of Attraction are the following:

#1. Ask: be specific and precise in what you want; write it down or create a visual board; ask the universe politely, as if you’re sending it a letter in the form of a prayer.

#2. Believe: build your self-esteem: you deserve to get what you want, and it is very much possible to get it; dig deep inside your heart and keep an open mind.

#3. Receive: put yourself in a state of allowing and non-resistance by lying still and meditating.

The Power of Affirmations

A good way to reach a higher frequency and allow for some things to happen to you sooner is by telling yourself a couple of daily affirmations.

Mantras of the kind: “I always have more than enough _________________.”

Feel in the blank with anything: “money than I want,” “love in my life,” “of anything I need…”

This will put your mind in a more assertive and allowing state, i.e., it will make the second and the third step of the Law of Attraction much easier.

Creative Visualization PDF Summary

Creative Visualization PDFUse the Power of Your Imagination to Create What You Want in Your Life

What if you can create the future of your own choosing using nothing more but the power of your imagination?

In 1978, Shakti Gawain became one of the very first people to posit that question, contemplate it thoroughly, and, fascinatingly, adorn it with an affirmative answer.

Creative Visualization” is the book-length solution to the quandary.

Who Should Read “Creative Visualization”? And Why?

“Creative Visualization” is basically “The Secret” three decades before “The Secret.”

So, if you like Rhonda Byrne’s classic – or any of the many self-help books which aim to help you make positive changes to your life by teaching you how to think positively – you’ll certainly like Shakti Gawain’s pioneering book as well.

Read it if you want to find an encouragement and revolutionize your life.

Especially if you need some helping hand to take you out of the gutter.

Shakti GawainAbout Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain is an iconic personal development and New Age thinker and author.

Born as Carol Louisa Gawain, she obtained a degree in fine arts and dance from the University of California in the mid-1970s.

Soon after – in 1978 – she published her debut book, “Creative Visualization” which has been a bestselling book ever since.

She went on to write few other classics of the similar kind, such as “The Path of Transformation,” “Living in the Light,” “Four Levels of Healing,” “Developing Intuition,” and “Creating True Prosperity.”

All in all, her books have sold more than 10 million copies and have so far appeared in editions in no less than thirty countries and languages.

Gawain is the co-founder (with Marc Allen) of the New World Library Publishing Company.

“Creative Visualization PDF Summary”

Remember Des’ree?

Of course you do.

And remember her 1994 hit about “the affirmative powers of self-confidence” titled “You Gotta Be”?

If not – here’s a reminder:

There’s a reason why we started our summary with Des’ree’s “You Gotta Be.”

Because that song is basically “Creative Visualization” put to music.

Uncoincidentally, we may add, since Des’ree actually wrote it while drawing inspiration from this very book to get over a painful break-up.

But, then again, she’s not the only one.

Whether consciously or unconsciously, numerous sports superstars – such as LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, Carli Lloyd, Kerri Walsh Jennings… – use visualization techniques to improve their game.

And swear by its effectiveness!

Well, “Creative Visualization” is the book where it all started.

You already know the basic premise: think positively and positive things will happen; envisage what you want to do, and your body will move you forward to do it; visualize the finish line before the starting pistol has even fired, and you’ll get to it first.

But why should something like that work?

Well, think of it this way!

If you are a painter and you want to paint, say, a group portrait of some historical figures, you first have to see the final image in your head, then sketch their positions, and only then move to its execution.

Just the same, you can’t start writing a book if you don’t know how it will finish and it’s basically impossible to assemble correctly the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle if you don’t have the big final picture in your head at all times.

Well, the same is true with your life:

Let us imagine that life is a river. Most people are clinging to the bank, afraid to let go and risk being carried along by the current of the river. At a certain point, each of us must be willing to simply let go and trust the river to carry us along safely. At this point, we learn to ‘go with the flow’ — and it feels wonderful. Once we have become accustomed to being in the flow of the river, we can begin to look ahead and guide our course onward, deciding where the course looks best, steering the way around boulders and snags, and choosing which of the many channels and branches of the river we prefer to follow, all the while still ‘going with the flow.’

But – you may wonder – how does it work?

Or, in other words, does creative visualization has a surer scientific or philosophical foundation?

Well, according to Gawain, it does.

The key is to use the power of your “alpha waves” which originate from your brain’s occipital lobe during the minutes of “wakeful relaxation with closed eyes;” or, in more practical terms, just before you go to sleep, the few moments after you wake up, during meditation, or while you’re calmly listening to a flowing river or the wind rustling through the forest leaves.

Well, these alpha waves, according to Gawain, are the ones which connect us with the energy waves controlling the future, emanating and streaming through the universe around us.

And when we creatively visualize, we are actively participating in the dialogue between the energies.

Just like in love, the more you give, the more you receive back. Send care and affection, and the universe will respond to you caringly and affectedly.

As the Bible says: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

Key Lessons from “Creative Visualization”

1.      Creative Visualization is the Art of Changing Your Life with the Power of Your Thoughts
2.      Three Prerequisites: Affirmations, Self-Love, and Belief
3.      Tips for Successful Creative Visualization

Creative Visualization is the Art of Changing Your Life with the Power of Your Thoughts

Picture this:

A colleague of yours is constantly taunting you in the office about minor things and it is obvious that he doesn’t like you.

But, do you: a) play out in your mind the quarrel you’re inevitably going to have with him in the near future; or b) think about a peaceful conversation you’re going to have with him after which you’ll transcend your disagreements become best friends.

B is, obviously, the better-case scenario, but, if you are like us, you are probably obsessed with A.

Well, the “creative visualization” technique says that you’ll reap what you’ve sowed, i.e., if you think about A, you’ll unavoidably get A in the end.

So, why won’t you start thinking about B?

Three Prerequisites: Affirmations, Self-Love, and Belief

If you have problem visualizing, then start with daily affirmations. You don’t have to see images. You can just talk yourself up. Think of Des’ree’s song and the way it sometimes makes you feel.

An important prerequisite for a successful creative visualization, is love. If you don’t love yourself first, you won’t get in touch with your energy. So, accept the outcome first – and then start visualizing.

Also – believe!

Because doubt is creative visualization’s greatest enemy.

Tips for Successful Creative Visualization

Few things you can do to make sure that your creative visualization will succeed.

First, quiet down your mind and set a clear goal before yourself. You can even play some music if that “quiets down” your brain.

Use all five senses and be as realistic as possible.

Also, don’t repress the bad thoughts that will inevitable come. Acknowledge them and try to meander around them. Otherwise, they will emerge victorious.

Finally, say it out loud: “I’m going to make this thing happen. You just sit and watch!”

Our Critical Review

When it appeared in 1978, “Creative Visualization” launched a movement which, if not the phrase itself, made the philosophy behind it one of the most popular and most well-known in the personal development field.

Four decades – and countless of imitators – later, the book is still widely read and used in almost every single field of human endeavor.

And when a personal development book is as popular half a century after first seeing the day as in the first few years after it was published – then it’s undoubtedly a book which has struck a profound cord of the human nature.

So, even though we think that it’s just too New Age to tickle our fancy, we won’t try to discourage you from reading it.

Sanaya Roman’s “Spiritual Growth” offers many tips on how you can become your higher self.

And, thus, a more mature, more joyful, and more alive person!

“Spiritual Growth” – as its blurb claims – is written in the tradition of the great spiritual masterpieces of the ancient world.

In other words, it’s a book which explores timeless problems and tries to reach enduring conclusions.

It’s also practical, since it includes a series of meditations which can help you reach a higher state of your existences.

So, if you are into meditation and yoga, New Age spiritualism and religion in general – read “Spiritual Growth” and see how much it succeeds in realizing its objective.

Sanaya RomanAbout Sanaya Roman

Sanaya Roman considers herself merely a medium for Orin, “a wise and gentle spirit teacher” she has been channeling for many years.

Through Sanaya, Orin has created over 200 audio lessons, and written four books: “Spiritual Growth,” “Living With Joy,” “Personal Power Through Awareness,” and “Soul Love.”

Orin has also co-authored with DuBen (a spirit supposedly channeled through Duane Parker) two more books: “Creating Money,” and “Opening to Channel.”

The books have sold almost 3 million copies worldwide and have been so far translated into no less than 24 languages.

“Spiritual Growth PDF Summary”

“Spiritual Growth” is the third book in Sanaya Roman’s/Orin’s “Earth Life” series – and, quite possibly, the most famous of the six.

It’s, more or less, an entirely practical book, since it’s basically a list of teachings and techniques whose aim is to help you reach a higher self in your everyday life, in addition to aiding you while you create a vision of your higher future purpose.

The book is divided into three parts, each of which contains seven chapters.

(The last time !)

Part 1: Reaching Upward

The goal of the first part of “Spiritual Growth” is to teach you how you can move from your self to the Self of the Universe.

The basic premise is that you are not just the person living inside of your body.

You are much more than that.

And you can have everything you want.

Every time you use your imagination you are breaking the shackles of your limited being, letting go the ghost entrapped in the shell of your body and your senses.

The more expansive your imagination, the more expansive the future reality you can create for yourself.

Create?

Exactly!

You can transcend your present by connecting with the Universal Mind and by linking your inner self with the higher will of the Universe and the plan of humanity’s evolution.

Thus, you’ll open yourself to the miracles of the universe, and even learn to create some miracles yourself – out of pure light!

Don’t accept your current circumstances as the best you’ll ever have. Don’t believe people when they tell you something is impossible to create. When you know how to create with energy and light anything is possible.

Part 2: Opening Inward

You are a creature of energy much more than you are a creature of muscles and bodily fluids.

Open your heart chakra and increase your vibratory rate, so that you can both give and receive more energy from the higher planes of existence.

That way, you’ll be able to easily accept all changes – good and bad – and experience peace at all times.

People who have aligned their emotions with their souls are capable of meeting both heartbreaks and joys with the same calmness.

Because they’ve learned that in order to feel good, they have to allow themselves to feel that way:

People who have abundance, loving relationships, and happiness are not more deserving or better than you. They simply allow more good things into their life.

Some of them are even capable of changing the frequencies and experience their existence in some parallel universe.

You can choose your own reality if you want to.

You just have to be open-minded.

Part 3: Expanding Outward

Finally, once you open to your innermost being and find none other than God there, you’ll experience something you’ve never thought possible before.

Namely, you’ll see the world as it is – a stream of energies of love and kindness – and not as we are condemned to see it – a material heap of mass and chaos breeding sorrow and pain.

Once you do this, you’ll be able to attract only those things which will serve a higher good.

And even become transparent – so that bad energy can merely pass through you as if you’re non-existent.

Key Lessons from “Spiritual Growth”

1.      Reach Upward: Unite with the Universe
2.      Open Inward: Connect with Yourself
3.      Expand Outward: Become More Than You Are

Reach Upward: Unite with the Universe

No matter how solitary you feel on this planet, you are actually never alone.

You are part of an energetic field, a thought in the Universal Mind.

And you think of yourself as an individual, a being separated from the Universe, only because of your own ego and the artificial limitations you set for yourself.

Stop doing that!

Connect with the Universal Mind and see the bigger picture!

Thoughts can move mountains – literally!

The only thing you should do is learn how to think – and how to set yourself a goal which the Universe will conspire in helping you achieve it.

Open Inward: Connect with Yourself

The Universe is perfect.

Even the bad things which happen to you – happen for a reason, for a higher good.

If you open inward and connect with yourself, you’ll be able to calm your emotions and finally realize that you are not thrown within a reality – you can actually choose the one you want to.

Allow yourself to be happy – and, you’ll see, you will be.

Expand Outward: Become More Than You Are

Learn how to expand your spirit outward and burst through the confines of your body.

It – and basically everything you perceive with your senses – is an illusion, a veil behind which all things are connected and you are much more than the person currently reading this sentence.

If so, why should you act as if some things affect you, and others don’t?

You are all – and everything is you.

Stop taking things personally – in fact, stop taking all things personally – because you are a part of a much larger being.

And you are perfect.

Our Critical Review

Just like “A Course in Miracles,” “Spiritual Growth” purports to be written by someone who is not actually from this world – a spirit-teacher called Orin.

There are, usually, two ways to look at books of this kind: either dismiss them as an oddity or take them very seriously and start idolizing every word within them.

We recommend a third one: read them as works of fiction which may help you adopt a completely different outlook on your life and living in general.

If they don’t – then it’s all but irrelevant who wrote them: evidently, God doesn’t speak all languages. If they do – well, once again, it’s beside the point to talk about the author: obviously, the objective was reached even without the supernatural element.

We sincerely believe that people may profit profoundly if they reading religious books this very same way.

The Golden String PDF Summary

The Golden String PDFAn Autobiography

You’ve certainly read one or two biographies of a Yogi.

And you have probably read your fair share of hagiographies of Christian saints.

But what about the autobiography of a Christian yogi?

Bede Griffiths’ “The Golden String” is exactly that.

Covering the first half of this exceptional man’s life.

Who Should Read “The Golden String”? And Why?

Since “The Golden String” is an autobiography, it’s only obvious that the people who’ll enjoy it the most are those who have some previous knowledge of Bede Griffiths.

However, if all you know about him comes from Wikipedia, be warned that this book only covers the first half of Bede Griffiths’ life, ending with his decision to embark on an enlightening journey to India.

So, if you are interested in his experiences from the ashrams of South India, then you should consult Griffiths’ other book with a Blakean name, “Marriage of East and West,” an autobiography justly subtitled “A Sequel to the Golden String.”

Of course, if you have the time, it would be best if you read both books – so that you get the full picture.

Bede GriffithsAbout Bede Griffiths

Bede Griffiths, born Alan Richard Griffiths, was a British-born Oxford-educated Benedictine monk who spent the second half of his life living in the ashrams of India.

Because of this, by the end of his life, he was known by yet a third name, Swami Dayananda, i.e., the Bliss of Compassion.

After spending his childhood in poverty, Griffiths got an Oxford scholarship. At Oxford, he met C. S. Lewis and started regaining his lost faith. This will ultimately result in him rejecting modernity and becoming a monk.

“The Golden String” was his debut book. By the end of his life, he will end up writing eight more.

“Universal Wisdom,” Griffiths’ idiosyncratic selection of the religious thoughts from all major religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Sikhism) will be published soon after his death in 1993.

“The Golden String PDF Summary”

In one of the “Notebooks” of the great English Romantic poet William Blake, there’s a beautiful stanza which ultimately ended as the epigraph of “To the Christians” plate of his prophetic poem “Jerusalem”:

I give you the end of a golden string;
   Only wind it into a ball,
It will lead you in at Heaven’s gate,
   Built in Jerusalem’s wall.

Bede Griffiths used its first verse as the title of his 1954 beautifully written autobiography; the implication: this book, chronicling Griffiths’ personal experiences with faith, may lead you to the discovery of God as well.

Because, in his personal dictionary, discovering God is synonymous with discovering yourself.

Alan Richard Griffiths was born at Walton-on-Thames on December 17, 1906. He was the youngest of three children in a middle-class Anglican family.

However, soon after Griffiths was born, his father was betrayed by his business partner, leaving Griffiths’ family at the very brink of absolute poverty.

Consequently, in 1919, Griffiths was entered into the Christ’s Hospital, the “Blue-Coat school,” called that way because it was only attended by the poorest boys.

Griffiths excelled in his studies, and by 1924 it was obvious that he was destined for something great.

It was here, while reading authors such as Fielding and Austin, and especially Dante, Shakespeare’s “King Lear,” and S. T. Coleridge, that he fell in love with Western culture.

He had also fallen in love with Marx and many other social thinkers, so, by the end of his secondary education, Griffiths considered himself a zealous socialist, an ardent pacifist, and a devoted atheist.

“We did not believe in any authority beyond our own reason,” writes Griffith.

However, an evening walk in 1924 will change that profoundly, because a mystical experience would open his eyes to the presence of God in nature:

I remember now the feeling of awe which came over me. I felt inclined to kneel on the ground, as though I had been standing in the presence of an angel; and I hardly dared to look on the face of the sky, because it seemed as though it was but a veil before the face of God.

It was with this new-found belief in the divinity of all living things that Griffiths continued his journey, by entering Oxford in the fall of 1925.

Needless to add, he was one of the very selected few of his milieu who had the honor of earning an Oxford scholarship.

Two years later, still believing that Christianity is “a religion of the past,” he started studying English literature.

His tutor?

S. Lewis, the guy you may know as the author of “Narnia,” but also the guy many people revere as one of the wittiest Christian apologetics of the 20th century.

Lewis’ views on religion – combined with a careful study of Plato and Aristotle, Spinoza and Kant’s “Critique of Pure Reason” – will affect Griffiths deeply, especially after 1929 when the author of “Narnia” will experience his first conversion to theism.

The next year, repulsed by the flux of modernity and the dehumanization of man by the second Industrial Revolution, Griffiths would start a Waldenesque “experiment in common life” with two friends, Hugh Waterman and Martyn Skinner.

The three men shunned civilization and settled in a cottage in the Cotswolds, where they earned money almost exclusively by milking cows and selling the milk, and where they spend most of their time reading the “Bible” and discussing it.

The experiment – which lasted for a year – had a strong effect on Bede Griffiths and, on returning home, he decided to seek Holy Orders in the Church of England.

He was advised to first gain some experience in the London slums, but during his time working with the poor he suffered a crisis of faith.

He overcome it through the writings of Cardinal John Henry Newman, which helped him undergo a powerful conversion experience.

On Christmas Eve 1932, Bede, despite the protests of his mother, was received in the Roman Catholic Church.

A year later he took the name “Bede,” and he made his solemn profession on December 21, 1937.

A decade later, Bede Griffiths was appointed prior of St. Michael’s Abbey in Farnborough, but he was transferred to Pluscarden Priory in Scotland as a novice in 1951 after he was unable to generate sufficient financial support.

It was in Pluscarden Priory that he wrote “The Golden String,” one of the most moving autobiographies of its kind.

Key Lessons from “The Golden String”

1.      A Mystical Experience: The Golden String of Bede Griffiths
2.      Discovering God is Discovering Oneself
3.      The Divine Mystery Is a Mystery of Love

A Mystical Experience: The Golden String of Bede Griffiths

Bede Griffiths was an Oxford-bound poor boy who excelled as a student in a poor boys’ school before an evening walk in 1924 changed his outlook on life altogether.

Suddenly, he saw himself as something more than the greedy egos we all are – namely, a humble part of everything and all, Nature and God.

And, years later, he realized that, on that very evening, he had managed to find the end of a golden string which, to paraphrase Blake, throughout his lifetime, he would wind it into a ball which would, in turn, lead him to heaven’s gate.

Discovering God is Discovering Oneself

In Bede Griffiths’ words, discovering God means discovering oneself.

Turn that around, and you realize that you can reach God by merely trying to find who you are.

Consequently, if you have that objective in mind, it doesn’t matter if you’re reading the “Bible” or the “Vedas,” the “Qur’an” or Dante and Shakespeare.

They will all lead you to God.

The Divine Mystery Is a Mystery of Love

The divine mystery,” writes Bede Griffiths at one place, “is ultimately a mystery of love, and it reveals itself to love alone. It is only if we are prepared to give ourselves totally in love that Love will give itself totally to us.

To Griffiths, Love is a consuming fire.

It can purify you if you embrace it; but burn you if you resist it.

So don’t.

Our Critical Review

Bede Griffiths’ life had two interrelated halves: one as a monk and one as a yogi.

“Golden String” documents the first of these two halves – from his childhood until his departure for India – and is as beautiful as any autobiography you’ll ever read.

It’s personal, it’s honest, it’s moving – and it’ll probably make you want to yearn for a similar spiritual journey.

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying PDF Summary

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying PDFThe Tibetan people are known for the strives to get a broader understanding of this existence.

The material things are not their primary concern, because they are fully-equipped to go the limit and make every effort to move beyond the state of the ego.

Stay with us, for more on this life-altering book.

Who Should Read “The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying”? And Why?

In all honesty, after every decision, we endeavor to polish up our image to make us feel worthier. What about your perspective, where do you put yourself in this whole live-or-die situation?

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying” cannot be recommended to one particular group, because it covers a topic that concerns us all.

We advise that you should snatch this book because it most definitely deserves a place on your bookshelf.

About Sogyal Rinpoche

Sogyal RinpocheSogyal Rinpoche is Tibetan Dzogchen lama born in 1947. He has been teaching the secrets of Buddhism all across Europe for more than 3 decades.

He is the author of 4 books including Dzogchen and Padmasambhava, Glimpse After Glimpse & The Future of Buddhism.

“The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying PDF Summary”

Part 1: Living

In the first chapter, the author recalls his first-ever near-death experience and marks it as the main incentive for writing this masterpiece. Sogyal says that he wanted to create a manual, or a guide that will help those looking for the real meaning of life.

He finds inspiration in every breath and summons up the courage to oppose these harmful tendencies that are destroying the sanity of the present moment.

Life and death are in the mind, and nowhere else.

Going deep, and digging up those fears, is an inevitable road one must take, to finds its true nature. There are several chapters explored in this part such as Impermanence, The Nature of Mind, Bringing the Mind Home, The Innermost Essence, Evolution, Karma and Rebirth, Bardos and The Spiritual Path.

Although experts agree that this section, could have been published as a stand-alone book, Rinpoche respectfully disagrees and guides us through more in-depth topics of spirituality.

Gird your loins, and jump on the bandwagon to soak up the peaceful vibe of the book. We are just getting warmed up – let’s plunge deeper.

Part 2: Dying

This section revolves around the concept of death and questions the human nature to be overly afraid of an effortless transition – from one state of beingness to the other. If your moral and religious beliefs don’t overlap, you’ll also be dreaded by the thought of transformation.

We are acting as if we were the last generation on the planet. Without a radical change in heart, in mind, in vision, the earth will end up like Venus, charred and dead.

Sogyal unravels the cause for writing an easy-to-absorb but thoughtful book, which is filled with information and abstract meaning. According to him, it’s about time the people get out from the circle of suffering, and accept life with all its elements.

This section is subdivided into five separate chapters:

  • Heart Advice on Helping the Dying
  • Compassion: The Wish-Fulfilling Jewel
  • Spiritual Help for the Dying
  • The Practices for Dying
  • The Process of Dying

In this section of the book, the author gets the ball rolling with some life-altering quotes, statements, and examples.

He expands on the fear of death and explains that it’s profoundly senseless to love life and feel an aversion to its counterpart.

No one is asking of you to fly in the faces of these emotions, just to cast doubt upon your shallow thinking-patterns and unquestioned beliefs.

As a matter of fact, are they even yours? – Probably not, because every person would rather avoid face-to-face confrontations with its judgments and opinions than to take the bull by the horns.

Don’t get too excited. In the end, it’s neither good nor bad.

The last two chapters are particularly interesting and insightful. If you bury yourself in discovering the message conveyed through these examples, you’ll understand that thinking about death is silly. Such revelation will open your eyes to the possibility that you’ve been misled and misguided.

The author spares no one and goes through the death process step-by-step by examining the different stages of inner acceptance. If you are fearful about what awaits you then, be prepared to face death before passing away.

Part 3: Death and Rebirth

If you bear a grudge against the concept of death, the third part will open the doors to a new way of thinking. Death is only a new beginning, a liberation, which the ego considers a threat to its survival. It’s only that the personhood is trapped in a time-frame and it’s afraid to see the big picture.

This section has several chapters as well:

  • The Ground
  • Intrinsic Radiance
  • The Bardo of Becoming
  • Helping After Death
  • Near-Death Experience: A Staircase to Heaven?

All these chapters, speak about the Buddhist perspective in perceiving life. It examines – how to deal with temporary grief and overwhelming depression.

The part ends with a comprehensive analysis of the near-death experience and outlines the harmony between this thought-provoking angle and the bardo teachings.

Part 4: Conclusion  

The last part is wrapped around in two chapters – The Universal Process and The Servants of Peace.

The first chapter, brings to light the concept of death, as something that should be embraced. It explains the universal truth and instigates a new behavior, which supposedly is an integral part of the whole existence.  

The second chapter – Servants of Peace, focuses on those people whose minds and spirits are directed towards one goal of becoming a bodhisattva.

Key Lessons from “The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying”

1.      Indulge in new practices
2.      Don’t regret anything
3.      Live in the present moment

Indulge in new practices

The point of being alive is staying flexible and committed to improving each day. If you stagnate, the world will pass you by, and put you, second-in-command.

Find new wisdom in every action, don’t be afraid to move your boundaries, and explore the hidden treasures of existence.

Don’t regret anything

Regretting your decisions, meaning being stuck in the influence of the past events. Such mindset, can only bring you sorrow and put you on your knees.

Stand up, and resist these notions, because this life has a lot more to offer.

Live in the present moment

Even when death comes knocking at your door, you’ll greet it wholeheartedly if you are truly in the presence of your inner-self.

The future is yet to come, the past brings only sadness, so why not being right where you are? You are not inclined to agree with us, just contemplate this proposition.

Anatomy of the Spirit PDF Summary

Anatomy of the Spirit PDFThe Seven Stages of Power and Healing

There’s a difference between curing and healing, and a difference between being healthy and not being sick.

Caroline Myss, a firm believer in energy medicine, explains both in “The Anatomy of the Spirit.”

And uncovers the structure of the seven stages of power and healing – tentatively present, in her opinion, in all major religions, and illustrated through three great traditions: Kabbalah, Christianity, and Hinduism.

Who Should Read “Anatomy of the Spirit”? And Why?

Energy healing is not everyone’s favorite cup of tea.

However, if it is one of yours, then be sure to read “Anatomy of the Spirit,” something of a Bible in the sphere.

Caroline MyssAbout Caroline Myss

Caroline Myss is an American author, medical intuitive and a mystic.

She is one of the most famous practitioners of energy medicine and has appeared several times on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” explaining what energy healing is and what it isn’t, as well as the basic premises of its philosophy.

In addition, she has written numerous books on the subject. Six of them have gone on to become “New York Times” bestsellers: “Anatomy of the Spirit,” “Why People Don’t Heal and How They Can,” “Sacred Contracts,” “Invisible Acts of Power,” “Entering the Castle,” and “Defy Gravity.”

“Anatomy of the Spirit PDF Summary”

According to the Catholic church, there are seven sacraments instituted by Jesus.

According to a well-known tradition in Hinduism, there are seven chakras, i.e., focal points arranged along the spinal cord.

And, finally, according to the sacred wisdom of the Kabbalah, even though there are ten emanations, there are actually seven branches of the Sephirot.

Notice a pattern?

Well, about two decades ago, Caroline Myss did:

The universal jewel within the… major religions is that the Divine is locked into our biological system in seven stages of power that lead us to become more refined and transcendent in our personal power.

Afterward, she tried to create a map of the human “energy anatomy” by overlapping these three religious traditions

What she came up with was something more: a philosophy of disease:

My particular insights… have shown me that emotional and spiritual stresses or diseases are the root causes of all physical illnesses. Moreover, certain emotional and spiritual crises correspond quite specifically to problems in certain parts of the body.

So, in other words, a disease is a deviation from the God who is embedded within our bodies and biographies.

Consequently, a cure means going back to him, reestablishing the original equilibrium.

So, Myss dedicates a chapter to each of the body’s seven centers of spiritual and physical power, revealing, as she says, the seven sacred truths of our existence.

Each chapter includes the parallels between the above mentioned religious concepts, the related body parts, and potential illnesses, and a list of 10 questions for self-examination.

Let’s have a look at them all!

Key Lessons from “Anatomy of the Spirit”

1.      The Divine Is Locked Within Us
2.      The Three Principles of Energy Medicine
3.      The Seven Sacred Truths

The Divine Is Locked Within Us

This is something most religions believe in: we are created by some God and made in his image.

In other words, our physical anatomy corresponds to a divine scheme.

According to Caroline Myss, the same is true of our spiritual anatomy, which can be sketched if we superimpose the seven Christian sacraments, the seven-branched emanations of the ten Sefirot and the seven chakras.

What we get is the blueprint of a healthy person.

Any deviation from it is a deviation from God – and, thus, a disease.

The Three Principles of Energy Medicine

Caroline Myss is a proponent of energy medicine, i.e., the idea that our physical ailments can be cured if the energies in our bodies are aligned as well as they were in the beginning.

And energy medicine is based on three principles.

The first principle is “biography becomes biology,” i.e., our bodies contain our histories, and “our biological health becomes a living, breathing biographical statement that conveys our strengths, weaknesses, hopes, and fears.”

The second principle is “personal power is necessary for health.” In other words, a patient must generate internal energy to heal himself or herself.

This is closely related to the third principle, which is “you alone can help yourself heal.” Meaning, healing is a bit different from curing, and while the latter can be controlled with medicine, the former (emotional/psychological balance) is your domain exclusively.

The Seven Sacred Truths

There are seven sacred truths you should abide by daily to reach an equilibrium of stability and health.

These are: 1) All is One; 2) Honor One Another; 3) Honor Oneself; 4) Love is Divine Power; 5) Surrender Personal Will to Divine Will; 6) Seek Only the Truth; 7) Live in the Present Moment.

Our Critical Review

“Anatomy of the Spirit” should prove to be an informative read for anyone interested in energy healing.

However, more often than not, we have a feeling that Myss is stretching out the truth on the three religions she compares so as to make her insights fit her rigid system.

Which, ultimately, may be too rigid for its own sake.

I Am That PDF Summary – Nisargadatta Maharaj

I Am That PDF Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

What if you are not who you think you are?

And what if you are something much more and much different?

What if, instead of merely an “I” you are “We” and, even more, “Everything”?

In “I Am That” Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj delves deep into questions of this kind.

And really makes you wonder.

Who Should Read “I Am That”? And Why?

There aren’t many books on mindfulness and spirituality that have been as widely acclaimed as “I Am That” by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

It brought Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj – before this book a humble Indian guru who believed only in the oral transmission of his teachings – worldwide recognition and numerous followers from Europe and the United States.

Today, spiritual authors such as Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra consider it “a modern spiritual classic.”

Should we say more?

Nisargadatta MaharajAbout Nisargadatta Maharaj

Nisargadatta Maharaj, born Maruti Shivrampant Kambli, was an Indian guru, who gained worldwide recognition after the English translation of his talks was compiled and published by Maurice Frydman.

Born on April 17, 1897, Maharaj was introduced to his guru Siddharameshwar Maharaj in 1933, after which he started practicing self-inquiry.

He lost his wife a decade later and his daughter in 1948. He died himself on September 8, 1981, from throat cancer, at the age of 84.

During his life, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj didn’t write any book. All of the books published under his name are compilations by some of his students of his talks which he regularly held in his home.

“I Am That” is the most famous among them.

“I Am That PDF Summary”

In the sixth chapter of the “Chandogya Upanishad,” the 24-year old Shvetaketu Aruneya returns home, 12 years after his father has sent him to school, the first one in his family to have that privilege.

The first question that Svetaketu’s father Uddalaka Aruni asks his son is whether he has returned with the knowledge of that by which “we perceive what cannot be perceived, we know what cannot be known.”

Svetaketu answers in the negative, asking his father what that actually is.

His father explains, using the famous Advaita precept: tat tvam asi.

Tat = That
Tvam = You
Asi = Are

That thou art.”

But what is that exactly?

In “I Am That” – a collection of 101 short ruminations (actually Q&As) on many different deeply interrelated topics – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj tries to answer this question.

And already in the three epigraphs which precede the contemplations, the transcriber and English translator, Maurice Frydman, and the editor of the book, Sudhakar S. Dixit, give a tentative answer: that is everything that you don’t know that you are, the limitless existence, the absolute, God:

That in whom reside all beings and who resides in all beings, who is the giver of grace to all, the Supreme Soul of the universe, the limitless being – I am that. (Amritabindu Upanishad)

That which permeates all, which nothing transcends and which, like the universal space around us, fills everything completely from within and without, that Supreme non-dual Brahman – that thou art. (Sankaracharya)

Or in the words of Nisargadatta Maharaj himself:

The seeker is he who is in search of himself.

Give up all questions except one: ‘Who am I?’ After all, the only fact you are sure of is that you are. The ‘I am’ is certain. The ‘I am this’ is not. Struggle to find out what you are in reality.

To know what you are, you must first investigate and know what you are not.

Discover all that you are not – body, feelings thoughts, time, space, this or that – nothing, concrete or abstract, which you perceive can be you. The very act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive.

The clearer you understand on the level of mind you can be described in negative terms only, the quicker will you come to the end of your search and realize that you are the limitless being.

There is no better summary than the quote above of the contents of this book, which, on the face of it, is beyond summarizing.

Maharaj himself wouldn’t have wanted that, suspicious of any finality.

The book of my conversations,” he once said to a disciple, “should not be taken as the last word on my teachings. I had given some answers to questions of certain individuals. Those answers were intended for those people and not for all. Instruction can be on an individual basis only. The same medicine cannot be prescribed for all.

In other words, never forget that “I Am That” is not a panacea – it’s just a series of conversations with living/breathing people which Maurice Frydman, a Jewish refugee from Warsaw, wanted to preserve for eternity.

Everything that is said here is immediately lost,” he said to his teacher “though it could be of a great benefit for those looking for truth.

Nisargadatta Maharaj allowed Frydman to record the conversations and subsequently translate them into English.

But he wouldn’t allow anyone to think that these conversations are his final word on matters of spirituality and enlightenment.

Because even though the final destination is the same (surrendering to the limitless being), the path to reach it (giving up your identification with your body) differs between individuals.

Some may have to break through their physical greed, others through their spiritual materialism.

But all will have to stop thinking in terms of abstract intellectual concepts and start surrendering to the truth by way of earnestness, the surest sign of maturity.

Feel free to explore more by clicking on any of the 101 questions here and finding out Nisargadatta Maharaj’s answer.

Yes – that’s a PDF of the whole book.

So as to tickle your fancy, we’ll leave you with the most beautiful sentence you’ll read today, straight from the 57th chapter of this book, suggestively titled “Beyond Mind There Is No Suffering”:

Love says ‘I am everything.’ Wisdom says ‘I am nothing.’ Between the two, my life flows. Since at any point of time and space I can be both the subject and the object of experience, I express it by saying that I am both, and neither, and beyond both.

Key Lessons from “I Am That”

1.      Stop Identifying Yourself with Your Body… and Everything Else
2.      “Who Am I” Is the Only Question Which Really Matters
3.      Complete Self-Surrender Is Liberation

Stop Identifying Yourself with Your Body… and Everything Else

You are not your body.

You are not your hands, your legs, your mouth, your eyes.

You are not even your own feelings.

Everything which you perceive is an illusion.

Or, to turn that around, the very fact that you can perceive something (see, smell, feel, touch, taste) is evidence of its illusory nature.

Only the eternal is real.

And the perceivable is ephemeral.

“Who Am I” Is the Only Question Which Really Matters

Channeling his best Descartes – which is interesting to think about – Nisargadatta Maharaj claims that the only thing you can be sure of in this world is that you are and that you can think about that which you are.

However, unlike Descartes, Maharaj doesn’t stop here. Even when you doubt that you are, he says, you are still here – and the very existence of doubt is the evidence of this.

You must transcend it = by eliminating every shred of evidence that you are this, i.e., the particular.

Because you are that, the absolute.

The place where your individual consciousness melds with the consciousness of God.

Complete Self-Surrender Is Liberation

When there is a total surrender,” says Nisargadatta Maharaj in the 84th chapter of “I Am That,” complete relinquishment of all concern with one’s past, presents, and future, with one’s physical and spiritual security and standing, a new life dawns, full of love and beauty.

In the Absolute, there is no such thing as time. And you can only experience it when you start caring about what you have been or what you will become.

And surrender what you currently are to the truth.

Complete self-surrender by itself is liberation.”

Our Critical Review

As we said in the “Who Should Read” section, “I Am That” is considered “a modern spiritual classic” with Adyashanti (Steven Gray) going as far as saying that the book is “the clearest expression” one can find in the matters it talks about.

And true – even though you’ll be familiar with many of the ideas extrapolated in this book, you will certainly enjoy reading it, because Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj has a way of making clearer – even the things you know.

And the same goes for the things you don’t know as well.

Celebration of Discipline PDF Summary

Celebration of Discipline PDFThe Path to Spiritual Growth

Whether we like it or not, we are all on the same journey. Each person is trying to get at least a slight portion of the universal energy in order to refill its internal-batteries.

In this book summary, we encapsulate all the main findings, which would hopefully trigger a change in behavior.  

Who Should Read “Celebration of Discipline”? And Why?

Although this book is easy to digest, not everyone will find it life-altering and amusing. Burying the hatchet is the key message, but you need to gear yourself up with the right mindset to do likewise.

We believe that “Celebration of Discipline” is best equipped for those individuals, who refer to themselves as Christians.

On the other hand, we can’t simply single out one group and neglect the rest, so it’s all comes down to your openness.

About Richard Foster

Richard FosterRichard Foster is a theologian and author born in 1942, who mainly focuses on Christianity. His works target the Christian community, and he strives for inciting change on a global level.

He is the author of several books, related to Christian philosophy.

“Celebration of Discipline PDF Summary”

Celebration of Discipline, as a book, can be portrayed as a spiritual manual, which places emphasis on the idea of aligning with the one Universal Power. In such regards, getting the big picture, and absorbing the twelve Spiritual Disciplines, open the doors to a mind-blowing revelation.

Getting closer to God is a straightforward process if you have the right approach. What does it take for a person to be conscious of the far-greater controlling power?

First and foremost, it’s necessary to give some explanation on how Richard divides these disciplines into three groups of 4 –  Inward, Outward, and Corporate.

Before taking any further steps, it’s an absolute necessity to outline all the Twelve Disciplines:

  1. Meditation
  2. Prayer
  3. Fasting
  4. Study
  5. Simplicity
  6. Solitude
  7. Submission
  8. Service
  9. Confession
  10. Worship
  11. Guidance
  12. Celebration.

Each discipline or step brings us one step closer to God; if discussed and executed correctly. However, not taking decisive actions, can pause your progress, and backfire rather badly. It’s important to mention that each discipline goes along with specific scriptures and examples.

The first four Disciplines (Meditation, Prayer, Fasting, and Study) evidently belong to the Inward category. From an impartial perspective, not all of us, are eager to dig up all those tendencies that keep us away from discovering the real spirituality.

The second batch or the Outward Discipline (simplicity, solitude, submission, and service) throw light upon the world, and why need to stick up for everyone. Taking someone who’s in trouble under your wing, speaks about your readiness to follow the Outward practices.

Silence is one of the deepest Disciplines of the Spirit simply because it puts the stopper on all self-justification.

Last but not least, the last four disciplines fall into the Corporate category (confession, worship, guidance, and celebration).

As one can assume, these practices concentrate on the interpersonal relationships and the service to the community.

Absent real conviction, and faith, one can’t get closer to God. Persons stubborn to the bone, cannot find shelter in God’s kingdom.

The quality of your spiritual journey heavily depends on the ability to rise to the occasion, because each individual must be held accountable for its actions.

In efforts to breaks down the details of every discipline, Richard extracts critical information from scriptures and variety of examples.

He wants to give the lowdown on what’s happening behind closed doors, and how a practitioner can recognize the timing to react.

Not one discipline is relegated and put to secondary rank, all of them are equally important for getting the balance required to become a spiritual individual. In the book, you may find techniques, which must be utilized in order to get the most out of each discipline.

Submission reaches the end of its tether when it becomes destructive.

From what’ve acquired so far, it’s fair to say that spiritual growth is literally a transformation in mind, body, and habits.

By doing so, you enter inside God’s grace, and you no longer need to struggle for survival. All the energy feeds your beingness, by allowing it to connect with the ever-present Truth.

Clear your path to mindfulness by tackling all those meaningless limitations that you have embraced.

Generally speaking, the disciplines are bounded to neither cultural nor personal background. Every person in the world can dive right into them. Your social status doesn’t mean anything to God, which tips the balance in favor of the people.

You Christian background is not an obstacle, and regardless of your tradition, it can be said with utmost sincerity, that God is there for you.

Make peace with yourself, and understand that there is not a single person in this world without any blemish.

Key Lessons from “Celebration of Discipline”

1.      Strive for greatness in spiritual terms
2.      Kiss and make up
3.      Accept the consequences of your decision-making

Strive for greatness in spiritual terms

What is your motto? – Have you ever questioned or conducted an inquiry to find more about the actual meaning of life?

We assume that this existence is more than just money, and fight for interests. Growth is inevitable if you transform your mindset.

Kiss and make up

Intelligent and spiritual people back away when that’s necessary, unlike egoistic personalities who follow the same principles amidst all the confusion and masquerade.

Let bygones be bygones and make peace with everyone.

Accept the consequences of your decision-making

Do you dare to take full credit for your achievements, and carry out the heaviest burden?

Those two are intertwined; you can’t reach stability and success while rejecting to take full responsibility for your actions. In the meantime, you can bring leadership into play, to expand your viewpoints and agenda.

Purpose Driven Life PDF Summary

Purpose Driven Life PDFWhat on Earth Am I Here

Put your beliefs to the test, by challenging your ideas, and motives!

As it turns out, we reckon that a person with limited capabilities illustrated through the mind can become the lord of all creation – the alpha and omega. We doubt that!

In this brief summary, we explain the Will of God and more.

Who Should Read “Purpose Driven Life”? And Why?

This book is divided into forty brief chapters, to help the reader go through the process with relative ease. After the introduction part, Warren elaborates details about his key findings and ideas.

You can’t do it on your own; not knowing God is like resisting the ocean current, which is too strong for you to swim in the opposite direction. You must let go, and allow the Universal Force to take good care of you.

As such, it’s pretty evident that “Purpose Driven Life” is recommended for the entire population, even for those who mark themselves as non-believers.  

About Rick Warren

Rick WarrenRick Warren is praised for his immense contribution to society, as America’s greatest spiritual leader – or Guru. His methods vary from conventional to ultra-modern all in the service of the community.

He, alongside his wife, are the founders of one of the largest Church in California.

“Purpose Driven Life PDF Summary”

What is the main incentive that pulls you in a certain direction? – What gears you up, for the challenges up ahead? – If you lean on hate and guilt to show you the way, you will not get too far.

To be purpose-driven individual means to have something that backs your agenda, some abstract energy that urges you to move on.

The eternal-reality is manifested through the strides we make to deepen our relationship with the almighty God. If you intend for this communication to get more profound and to enter God’s grace, you must orient towards broadening your viewpoints.

The glory of God is expressed through mercy and love for those who can’t simply renounce their old habits.

Christ, whose mission was to say the words deriving from the absolute Truth, served others to turn and understand the will of God.

Humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less. Humility is thinking more of others.

This indicates that once we establish ourselves as real believers, thy kingdom will enter our hearts. To make God happy, you must make his children happy, which means to renounce your prejudices and stereotypes, and leave the notion to judge aside.

All the ceremonies, which show why we indulge in specific practices, to get God’s affection, makes us peaceful as well. Through the idea of showing that we are ready to accept the natural flow of life, we sing his praises and worship his existence.

Acknowledging our wrongdoings, and accepting the secondary role as an egoic entity, makes God smile. Meditation and other mind-altering practices can get you closer to him, but you must confront your narrow-mindedness first, to get there.

You weren’t put on earth to be remembered. You were put here to prepare for eternity.

The whole worship-process or should we say life-routine must rely on authenticity and readiness to digest the actual meaning of God’s intentions. When you seem like you are out of God’s grace, it’s vital to remain calm, and 100% prepared to accept his guidance.

According to Rick, God’s family includes everyone, even those who don’t believe in him. The Universal Life-Force loves and takes good care of its children, it doesn’t turn its back on them, even if they do likewise.

Through the Church and other religious objects, God assembles all the believers to cross that threshold. To become a valuable asset to the community, one must be spiritually prepared, to express his regards, courtesy, love, and appreciation.

You must take the initiative to heal broken hearts, and repair damaged relationships among people.

If you want God to bless you and use you greatly, you must be willing to walk with a limp the rest of your life, because God uses weak people.

If you are keen to be protective of the church, you must distance yourself from all the wrongdoings, such as, harming others, and gossiping.

Following a path of a peaceful solution, will help you climb the ladder of compassion, and endorse God’s methods for handling conflicts.

Pay exclusive attention to values, attitude, and character, and understand what it takes to become like the Savior – Jesus Christ.

God wants you out of the ignorant behavior. The whole existence prefers to have another loving person, whose actions will speak on behalf of those who are unequipped to step up. Take this truth into account, and embark on a mission to become everyone’s right-hand man/woman.

Each creature has a role, and each path is highly unique. It’s about time we accept this assignment, and fill our hearts with spiritual wisdom.

All of the facets are perfectly shaped to be in the service of the only Truth. Using them requires for you to dive deep into the unknown, and abandon the hectic lifestyle. Whatever God throws at you, embrace it, don’t reject nor oppose his will, because you don’t know what’s best for you.

Rest assured that God will crush your fears, if you decide to continue Jesus’ mission on this planet.

Balance your life, accept that judgment comes only from one power, and that is something far greater than your mind.

Be the witness of your thoughts, learn the lessons of life, and walk step-by-step until you reach the kingdom of salvation.

If you truly are a Christian, you should be psyched up to conduct an internal transformation. Melt that self-centered personality and embrace evangelism fully.  

Key Lessons from “Purpose Driven Life”

1.      Be in the service of God
2.      Know your mission, and follow it
3.      Become a person with integrity

Be in the service of God

True believers, also labeled as servants, remain faithful even in the darkest hour. God will test your faith, and your courage to stay calm under pressure.

The service doesn’t start outside of your room but in your heart and mind.

Can you devote yourself to the Universal Power, regardless of the outcome?

Know your mission, and follow it

Whether we are aware of it or not, every person on this planet has only one purpose – serving God.

In other words, this means that no matter what you believe is essential, there’s a more prominent and greater power around the corner, which can crush your agenda within seconds.

Become a person with integrity

Growing means, abiding by principles which reveal your intentions.

Resisting the temptation to go for the poisonous apple, can show you the way to locate the treasure trove.

Find the support in small things, and ignite your faith by endorsing a non-judgmental attitude.
