Summary

“Reading this will lead you to a better life.”—Dean Nelson, author of God Hides in Plain Sight  In The 100 Thing Challenge Dave Bruno relates how he remade his life and regained his soul by getting rid of almost everything. But The 100 Thing Challenge is more than just the story of how one man started a movement to unhook himself from consumerism by winnowing his life’s possessions down to 100 things in one year. It’s also an inspiring, invigorating guide to how we all can begin to live simpler, more meaningful lives.

    Lying

    As it was in Anna Karenina, Madame Bovary, and Othello, so it is in life. Most forms of private vice and public evil are kindled and sustained by lies. Acts of adultery and other personal betrayals, financial fraud, government corruption—even murder and genocide—generally require an additional moral defect: a willingness to lie.In Lying, best-selling author and neuroscientist Sam Harris argues that we can radically simplify our lives and improve society by merely telling the truth in situations where others often lie. He focuses on "white" lies—those lies we tell for the purpose of sparing people discomfort—for these are the lies that most often tempt us. And they tend to be the only lies that good people tell while imagining that they are being good in the process.

    Time is that in which we live -- it is horizontal. It is from A to B to C to D; it is in a line. Eternity is vertical. It is not from A to B and from B to C. It is from A to more A to still more A. It goes on upwards. The moment is rare because it happens only when meditation has reached ripening, maturity, when you have touched your innermost core. The vertical line opens a door to eternity. Taken from a series: Hari Om Tat Sat, by Osho

    Exploring classic Qigong meditation from the perspective of modern psychology, parapsychology and cognitive science, Dr. Tianjun Liu defines the mental state of 'still' Qigong in new terms, identifying a specific mental state, Rujing. He examines the psychology of meditation, showing what happens, both mentally and physically, when a person is in a meditation state.
    
    Dr Liu shows how the mastery of Rujing is a fundamental skill vital to the practice of Qigong, and presents a new type of Qigong exercise which takes the achievement of Rujing as its primary goal. His scientific approach to meditation is a breakthrough in this area and will be of interest to practitioners of Qigong and related practices at any level, in addition to anyone with an academic interest in meditation.

    Do 'milestones' feel like millstones? Does the thought of waiting at the school gate make you more nervous than  your five-year-old? Do you find yourself sometimes tempted to just let your  children fight to the death? And does flicking through childcare books leave you  feeling mostly bewildered and blamed? Then The Mumsnet Rules are what you have been waiting  for...  Drawn from the message boards of mumsnet.com and  based on the assumption that if thousands of parents have found a piece of advice  to be helpful then you can be pretty sure it's worth knowing, this book shapes  that collective wisdom into dozens of dos and don'ts that will lead you  through the minefield that is twenty-first-century  parenting.  From tantrums to teenagers, parasites to  parties, competitive parenting to choosing the right school, and  including:  Don't heed the gurus  Do cut your children's hair off  Do bribe and corrupt them through examsDon't let them dress like a Ho  Do be hypocritical about swearing  and  Never buy them a guinea pig ... ...The  Mumsnet Rules will arm you with the insight that usually only comes  with hindsight (as well as teaching you how to make a very classy Easter  bonnet out of a KFC bucket).
