It's Never Crowded Along the Extra Mile
Wayne W. Dyer - 2002
Wayne W. Dyer as he shares what it’s like to go the extra mile and lead a deeper, fuller life. Drawing upon the lessons of great teachers such as St. Francis of Assisi, Viktor Frankl, Jesus Christ, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, and Buddha, Dr. Dyer helps you discover that you can achieve true inner peace and success by integrating ten powerful “secrets” into your life that can transform your everyday existence into a path for spiritual enlightenment. Dr. Dyer goes on to demonstrate the same meditation technique—Japa—that he himself has used for years to make conscious contact with a higher power. He provides real-life tools that can help you improve the way you relate to others . . . and yourself. Using Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s ten secrets for success and inner peace, you’ll discover that you can bring anything you desire into your life! Some of the important points Dr. Dyer makes on this 8-CD set include the following: • By clearing out preconceived notions and allowing a higher functioning of the mind, you’ll begin to attract what you really want and manifest the “symptoms” of inner peace. • When you’re open to everything and attached to nothing, you’ll learn that you don’t need to evaluate yourself based on money or fame. • By giving up your personal history, you’re freed from the concept of failure and can connect with God in the here-and-now. • You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it. Any limitation can be transformed with the intention to manifest. • Every great artist and thinker has been able to find insight and creativity by reaching a higher energy. Anyone can access this energy—it’s only a thought away! • We’re all connected to God. When you “tap in to” this connection, you can access intuition, see the universe as one, and understand that you simply have to align yourself with what you want in order to bring it into your life.

Paramhansa Yogananda knew this disciple would carry his message to people everywhere.Kriyananda was often present when Yogananda spoke privately with other close disciples; when he received visitors and answered their questions; when he was dictating and discussing his important writings. Yogananda put Kriyananda in charge of the other monks, and gave him advice for their spiritual development. In all these situations, Kriyananda recorded the words and guidance of Yogananda, preserving for the ages wisdom that would otherwise have been lost, and giving us an intimate glimpse of life with Yogananda never before shared by any other student.These Conversations include not only Yogananda's words as he first spoke them, but also the added insight of an intimate disciple who has spent more than 50 years reflecting on and practicing the teachings of Yogananda. Through these Conversations, Yogananda comes alive. Time and space dissolve.

The Art of Power
Thich Nhat Hanh - 2007
Being peaceful and happy is the most important thing in our lives and yet most of the time we suffer, we run after our cravings, we look to the past or the future for our happiness."Turning our conventional understanding of power on its head, world-renowned Zen master, spiritual leader, and national bestselling author Thich Nhat Hanh reveals how true power comes from within. What we seek, we already have. Whether we want it or not, power remains one of the central issues in all of our lives. Every day, each of us exercises power in many ways, and our every act subtly affects the world we live in. This struggle for control and authority permeates every aspect of our private and public lives, preventing us from attaining true happiness. The me-first mentality in our culture seeps unnoticed into our decisions and choices. Our bottom-line approach to getting ahead may be most visible in the business world, but the stress, fear, and anxiety it causes are being felt by people in all walks of life.With colorful anecdotes, precise language, and concrete practices, Thich Nhat Hanh illustrates how the current understanding of power leads us on a never-ending search for external markers like job title or salary. The Art of Power boldly challenges our assumptions and teaches each of us how to access the true power that is within our grasp.
