The Kingdom of God Is Within You is a nonfiction book written by Leo Tolstoy. A philosophical treatise, the book was first published in Germany in 1894 after being banned in his home country of Russia. It is the culmination of 30 years of Tolstoy's thinking and lays out a new organization for society based on a literal Christian interpretation. The Kingdom of God Is Within You is a key text for Tolstoyan nonviolent resistance and Christian anarchist movements.

Mantra means a tool created in mind to improve mind by a system of repetitions and it is aimed to connect with higher energies which may be in Universe. This is an ancient Hindu Science practised since thousands of years. Repetitions of Mantra develops faith and than faith causes benifits. This book is not exhaustive in this science of Hindus, but it does introduce the system with good demonstrations and examples.- Haresh A Raichura

Have you ever found yourself in a relationship or friendship where something just wasn't quite right? I mean, we all have dysfunctional families and "eccentric" friends to some extent, but I'm talking about those moments when you find yourself emotionally exhausted at every interaction and dreading every single moment you spend with that person. Times with them used to be better, and it's those wonderful memories that keep you around them, struggling to remind them of who they can be.

Alfred Adler was not a man driven mad by ambition, nor was he a terrorist. Individual psychology, a construction of Alfred Adler, rests heavily on the notion of social interest presenting an optimistic view of the individual. It is differences such as the optimistic outlook of the individual of Adler that create a tenuous relationship between Adler and Freud.

Teleological view of goal setting... You see a possibility to move from a place of inferiority to a place of superiority... Goals are projections of an Individual about his possibilities in future to migrate from a place inferiority to a place of Superiority.. A man not only knows what he is doing, he is also knowing why he is doing what he is doing...His locus of control is inside him, not outside him... The book is very short...The Individual Psychology of Alfred Adler is a vast subject and more important today than ever. It is the Individual within us who needs to be made more stronger and more clearer about his motivations and undercurrents. There is some problem with narrator. But I chose to ignore it and tried to digest content..

The "perfuming of a scorpion", referred to by the great Sufi teacher Bahaudin, symbolizes hypocrisy and self-deception: both in the individual and in institutions. In A Perfumed Scorpion, Idries Shah directs attention to both the perfume and the scorpion - the overlay and the reality - in psychology, human behavior and the learning process. Crammed with illustrative anecdotes from contemporary life, the book is nevertheless rooted in the teaching patterns of Rumi, Hafiz, Jami, and many other great Oriental sages. It deals with the need for and the path to knowledge and information.

As I listened, barriers to acquiring knowledge, began to lift one by one. I began to see a new world. I began to learn a new way to listen to these stories.. Truly, I found this book as Way to Way

The world is so full of so many leaders and politicians who continue to perfume a scorpion in hope that it will not sting them. But few of them know that it will always sting them. In fact, many of them themselves are perfumed scorpion. Apart from this title book, I enjoyed every story this book contains. Some of these stories made instant, effortless, changes in my attitudes. 🍁

In Idries Shah's Wisdom of the Idiots, the "idiots" are Sufis, called this because their wisdom penetrates to a depth which renders it inaccessible to the merely intelligent or academically knowledgeable. The stories of the Sufis are tools prepared for a specific purpose. On this level the movements of the characters in a story portray psychological processes, and the story becomes a working blueprint of those processes.

The book causes many paradigm shifts in mind. The teaching is through stories which one can relate to real world. Some of these stories have very deep meanings. Such works are true inheritance from those who thought well and lived well. This is my first book on Sufism. I felt as if I am introduced to treasures of human wisdom with its practical application. Reading this story and their analysis and meaning, causes instant paradigm shifts in minds which are ready and hungry for wisdom. The language is lucid. The listening is a profound pleasure. This is what I think. I also wish that prices are lower so that more and more human being can be benefited.

George Robert Stowe Mead was one of the most prolific and gifted scholars of Gnosticism and Hermeticism of the first half of the 20th century. This book explores gnostic ideas and texts from an entirely sympathetic point of view, which was rare at the time. Editor Jason Augustus Newcomb has rendered the book more comprehensible for modern listeners, as well as added additional notes and commentary.

Whatever we do or think, our Mind is the Initiator. Path seems to be to pray to Mind to lead us from that which is imperfect to that which is perfect good. To me, once there may have been such a religion called "Religion of Mind", itself is a fact which tells me that Mind has doors which can be opened through devotion and dedication to it. Then second thought comes to my mind is, "Our all images of all Gods are also conceived in our Mind"... The book provoked many thoughts in me. I would like to know more about this ancient tradition..

When you live without command, your default demeanor is to waste your time. You might gain some knowledge, but you won't apply it very well. You've the potential to live a mighty, self-directed life of your choosing, but until you take command, this potential stays an illusion. With taking command, you not only accept responsibility for your life story, you take total charge of it. You'll have the clarity to distinguish the sort of life story you wish to live, as well as the might to really produce it.
