Summary

The landmark bestseller that changed the way we think about love: “Every line is packed with common sense, compassion, and realism” (Fortune).  The Art of Loving is a rich and detailed guide to love—an achievement reached through maturity, practice, concentration, and courage. In the decades since the book’s release, its words and lessons continue to resonate. Erich Fromm, a celebrated psychoanalyst and social psychologist, clearly and sincerely encourages the development of our capacity for and understanding of love in all of its facets. He discusses the familiar yet misunderstood romantic love, the all-encompassing brotherly love, spiritual love, and many more. A challenge to traditional Western notions of love, The Art of Loving is a modern classic about taking care of ourselves through relationships with others by the New York Times–bestselling author of To Have or To Be? and Escape from Freedom.  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

  • Balancing Heaven and Earth - A Memoir - cover

    Balancing Heaven and Earth - A...

    Robert A. Johnson

    One of this century's most popular psychology scholars, Robert A.Johnson was among the first to present Carl Jung's rich but complex theories with simple elegance and grace,opening them to an entirely new and hungry audience. His masterful works--including the best selling He, She, Inner Work, and Owning Your Own Shadow-are known and loved as much for their beautiful retellings of timeless myths and folktales as for their deep wisdom and profound insight.  
    Balancing Heaven and Earth reveals, for the first time, Johnson's own fascinating and mystical life-from his near-death experience at the age of eleven to the lifelong soul journey that has informed his writing and taught him how to live a spiritual life in the endlessly challenging modern world. Full of compelling, humorous, and surprising stories of encounters with an assortment of "sages, saints, and sinners," it lays bare Johnson's own inner world and its dazzeling landscape of powerful dreams, mystical visions, and synchronistic events.  
    Beginnning with a vivid retelling of the childhood accident that claimed the lower part of his right leg, Johnson describes the life-defining moment when he was transported by a mystical vision to a realm that exists just beyond ordinary consciousness-a realm he calls the "Golden World." With this experience, described as "both my curse and my blessing," Johnson is launched on a spiritual quest that leads him in search of Eastern wisdom, to encounters with such wise men as J. Krishnamurti and D.T. Suzuki, and finally to Carl Jung, who shows him his destiny revealed in a dream. Johnson's experiences lead him to a unique understanding and acceptance of the slender connecting threads at work in all our lives, guiding us and shaping who we are-"call it fate, destiny, or the hand of God."  
    As much a personal guide as a memoir, Balancing Heaven and Earth teaches us to follow , as Johnson has, the subtle influences of dreams, visions, and even our deepest sufferings in order to live attuned to our spiritual selves. A pure delight for Johnson's many fans and a splendid example of his trademark blend of illustrative myth and psychological insight, this is a work of incomparable beauty and inspiration showcasing the wisdom of a lifetime.

    New Light on the Eyes -...

    Today, millions of men, women, and children, throughout the World, depend upon glasses. To the very many who ask, as did the Author thirty years ago, when he too was very shortsighted, `need such things be?' this book is of outstanding interest.
    Written in simple words for the laity, who are entitled to an understanding of their eyes, this book is also of profound importance to the ophthalmic and optical professions. It solves many of the problems of why eyes, normal at birth, develop refractive errors. It also introduces methods for the prevention of Cataract and Glaucoma, as well as rational treatment of these diseases.
    The universal prescription of glasses to-day is based upon an 'hundred years old' theory that astigmatism is congenital, that shortsighted eyes are permanently too long, and longsighted eyes too flat, and that all adjustments of focus for near vision depend solely upon the small natural lens inside the eye incessantly changing its curvature and strength.
    In contradiction, however, the Author has proved, and depicts, with the aid of simple diagrams, that astigmatism is caused by irregular muscular tension on the pliable eyeball, and that normal eyes involuntarily lengthen to produce 'natural shortsight' for near vision, automatically return to an 'at rest' condition for distance vision, and arc mechanically capable of flattening for extreme distance vision or very longsight.
    These natural processes, and their activation, are simply explained, and clearly indicate that developed irregular shapes of the eyes are capable of correction, and are not static unless so maintained by the wearing of glasses. Methods of scientific correction, evolved by the Author and named 'Oculopathy', are briefly indicated.
    The Author demonstrates that irregular muscular tensions, productive of refractive errors, also largely contribute to the development of Cataract and Glaucoma.
