Against the Pollution of the I: Selected Writings of Jacques Lusseyran

Against the Pollution of the I: Selected Writings of Jacques Lusseyran (Used)

by Lusseyran, Jacques

Publisher: Morning Light Press

Binding: Paperback

Book ID: 9781596750098, 159675009X

Description

This inspiring new volume presents six little-known essays by the blind French author and Resistance leader Jacques Lusseyran, gathered together for the first time in English. Two of the essays delve more deeply into the human drama and heroism of his interment in a Nazi prison camp at Buchenwald, which Lusseyran described so movingly in his autobiography And There Was Light. Others explore the mystery and wonder of the world that his remarkable inner vision revealed, and offer a comparison of sight both with and without eyes.

Imagine experiencing senses far beyond the usual five-true and vivid sight without eyes, sound from trees, pressure from inanimate objects. Imagine reading the words of a man whom many consider a modern day saint. Against the Pollution of the I possesses the ingredients that make for success: the heroism of World War II, clear-sighted hope, and a full-hearted love of life. Four of the six essays are based on Lusseyran's experiences both during and after university life as a professor of literature and philosophy in Europe and in the United States. Three of the essays address being blind in a sighted society. Blindness, for Lusseyran, invited him to pay more attention, enabling him to discover the divinity of the world available to all people. And in this remarkable collection of essays, Lusseyran offers us a way to access our precious light-filled inner self -- our I -- and transform our lives!

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...

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...

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)

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...

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.

Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.
