Description

A New Conception of God: Further Reflections on Gurdjieff's Whim by Keith A. Buzzell continues the thread that was introduced in the first volume, Reflections on Gurdjieff's Whim. In this 314 page volume, bountiful with full color, exquisite illustrations, Buzzell shares his unending pursuit of "fathoming the gist" of G.I. Gurdjieff's three series of writings under the title of All and Everything, with an emphasis on the first series, Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson. Included with the book is an eight page fold-out of key illustrations which can be a substantial aide for the reader to navigate through the complex concepts. In every long thought, Buzzell pursues the implications of current scientific discoveries in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, evolutional biology and cosmology, revealing the vastness of Gurdjieff's vision of the potential evolution of three-brained beings: us humans on the planet Earth.

Buzzell examines Gurdjieff's concept of Conscience, exploring the implications of its involvement in all parts of one's being, with emphasis on the relationship of Conscience with Reason. He takes up the perennial question of war, focusing on its origins within the subconscious. He goes deep into the interstices of the power of the survival impulse in all our three 'brains' or centers: body, feeling, thinking and identifies their essential qualities which throw light on the mechanics of egoism. Buzzell responds to Gurdjieff's injunction to comprehend the essential difference between sensing and feeling, giving a convincing and clarifying account of the biology of these two distinct experiences, as well as their ancient sources. Throughout, a symbol is employed, called A Symbol of the Cosmos and its Laws, which visually organizes the complex notions of levels in Gurdjieff's concept, the "Ray of Creation" as well as many other concepts such as the significance of the digestion of food, air and impressions. With this symbol, Buzzell helps us to see the intrinsic lawfulness of all event and process. The book culminates with a chapter, the title of which gives a taste of its magnitude: "Attention (H12), the Greatest Gift to Life; The Power to Pursue Meaning and Purpose."

The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
