Summary

Tatah kim? What then? Adi Shankara asked this question years ago. What then? Making this soul-searching query his starting point, Dada J.P. Vaswani takes us on a journey of introspection and self-discovery to uncover the purpose of this, our human birth.
 
After acquiring degrees, amassing millions of dollars, gaining approbation and applause of crowds, man passes away like any other man. He does not— cannot— carry with himself his degrees, his wealth, his prestige and power. What is the purpose of life? What is its goal? Are you living your precious human life meaningfully, consciously, purposefully?
 
If you have ever asked yourself these questions, this book will help you with a few enlightening answers. It will show you that there is more to life than existing at the mundane level of material pleasures and possessions!
 
Come, discover what is next on your life's agenda, with Dada, the practical philosopher to show you the way!

    Balancing Heaven and Earth - A...

    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.

    Your body is constantly being attacked by very harmful substances known as free radicals. You cannot see them, smell them, or touch them, but they are always there, trying to destroy body proteins and cell membranes. OPC's (oligomeric proanthocyanidins) are among today's most poten and promising free-radical fighters. Found in grape seeds, red wine, and the bark of French maritime pine tress, more powerful than vitamins C and E, the gold-standard among antioxidants. This book explains the benefits of OPCs in combating modern-day killer diseases and in protecting the body's billions of cells.
