From the depths of despair to heights of true love, Everett R. Hubbard soulfully portrays the full breadth of the human experience in The Sensitivity of a Man. This remarkable collection of more than 60 poems and short essays is intensely personal in nature yet universal in scope. Here are moving sketches of the spirit-crushing effects of contemporary life on a modern black manand the power of faith in God to raise him up from even the lowest lows. All of them attempt to forge a way out of a cultural mindset that has demanded menand particularly black mento sequester their emotions from view.In Homeless, Everett examines the interminable connection among all of us and asks what separates the gutter dweller from anyone else. In Sight Unseen, a blind man sheds new light on who actually has a physical disability when what really matters is sensing the spirit. In The Message Pt. 2, Everett urges his brothers toward a renewed respect for women, based on an eternal and sacred bond. And The Streets casts a wary but experienced eye on an urban horror scene, asking, Is this what weve reduced ourselves to? The answer, Everett finds, is noas long as we entrust our lives to the Heavenly Father. At once a stark critique of masculine mores, examination of challenges faced by the black community, and stirring call to God, The Sensitivity of a Man will stay with you long after the book is closed.

The Way of Rest

Finding The Courage to Hold Everything in Love

Author: Jeff Foster

Publisher: Sounds True

ISBN: 1622037928

Category: Body, Mind & Spirit

Page: 352

The Way of Rest gathers nearly 200 of Jeff Foster’s most inspiring essays, poems, and reflections on restoring and reviving ourselves when we feel exhausted or defeated. Drawing from his personal journey—including his own struggles with illness and depression—Jeff invites us to contemplate “the Way of Rest” and its potential to transform our experience of: • Imperfection—how we are “gloriously flawed” yet complete exactly as we are • Not knowing—how we come to trust in the greater intelligence of life • Melancholy and loneliness—how we learn to release the healing energies of “exquisite sensitivity” • Ordinary moments—recognizing and receiving “the closest thing of all” • Discomfort and discontent—how our frustrations become an opening to deep peace • Love—rediscovering who we are beyond our carefully constructed facades • Silence—discovering the vibrancy of living by letting go of thoughts and concepts “I hope the words in this book inspire, challenge, and encourage you. But most of all, I hope they help you remember that you are life, inseparable from the power that grows the flowers and gives birth to galaxies,” writes Jeff Foster. The Way of Rest brings you his companionship and support whenever you need it most.

Freedom from Within

A Gift of Love

When we are born, we are free. Somewhere, however, the joy is lost; somewhere along the way we allow our souls to slip into bondage. At times our bondage can be so full of hurt and pain that it seems we never knew the feelings of love, joy and inner peace. The key to returning to happiness and both physical and emotional balance and health lies in greater self-awareness and a better understanding of the energy of the soul and the divine. In Freedom from Within: A Gift of Love, author, counsellor and teacher Teresa Alexander invites us to witness and join her inspirational journey to inner freedom, escape from the bonds of the ego and embrace faith and total love. Teresa seeks to help us discover and open our hearts to the divine presence within ourselves. Her comforting, energetic poems and prose, which she began writing in 1990 after witnessing and aiding miracles of healing in herself and three other people, challenge us to embrace newness in our lives, embrace freedom and follow our hearts’ paths of joy, confidence, courage and faith. Once we are free from ego and the fears it brings, the love, beauty and glory of each day can be ours. Put aside all these things, For God has promised more. The joy, the laughter and the learning Must be behind another door. Money cannot buy it, Not any amount of wealth. The joy we seek is in our heart, Deep within our self.

Page: 334

Eknath Easwaran taught spiritual living for nearly 40 years and drew deep, ongoing inspiration from the sacred literature of all traditions — the great river of wisdom that is always flowing throughout the world. The 149 short extracts in this anthology come from the much-loved saints, sages, and scriptures of the Christian, Hindu, Sufi, Jewish, Native American, Buddhist, and Taoist traditions. These passages can be read for daily inspiration, for their insights into other spiritual traditions, for the light they throw on how to live, for the sustenance they offer when we feel sad or tired, and for the deep transformation they can bring in Easwaran’s method of passage meditation. Rich supporting material includes stories from India, detailed background notes, suggestions for memorization and for studying the texts in practices such as lectio divina from the Christian tradition, and instruction in using these texts in passage meditation.

This book is for those who savor the journey and are willing to put their lives under a microscope to explore how the pieces fit together. How do you come to define who you are? How do you fill the emptiness in your soul? How do you come to know who you were born to be? Have you lost someone to a violent death? Have you ever doubted your own intrinsic worth, felt crazy, or been labeled by the mental health system? Can you use a dose of meaning and purpose - because we live in a world that can be so unjustly harsh? If you can say yes to any of these questions, this book is for you.

Gorse Fires

Author: Michael Longley

Emerging, as it did, after over a decade of silence,Gorse Fireshad an immediate and resounding impact - revealing a poetry that seemed renewed and re-energised - and winning the Whitbread Prize for Poetry in 1991. It is now regarded as the pivotal book in Michael Longley's distinguished career. If Ireland remains Longley's starting-point or implied focus, it is often sighted through disturbing perspectives that derive from foreign cultures, from Homer's Odyssey, from the Second World War, and from the Holocaust. Even his beautifully precise poems about the West of Ireland are shadowed by the many destructive forces ranged against the creative act. Longley's versions of Odysseus' return to Ithaca and 'Ghetto' (based on the Polish ghettoes) epitomise his concern with the meaning of home and family. He sees these archetypes of Western civilisation as vulnerable, problematic, violated by power. Odysseus' homecoming involves murder and vengeance as well as reunions - a connection with the ambiguities of life in Northern Ireland. Gorse Firesis an unusual artistic blend: darkly austere, yet abundant in images, catalogues and syntactical virtuosity. The formal links between poems gives the whole collection the air of a richly varied sequence; it is a work of the highest order.
