Summary

Life is messy and rarely simple.

 
There are times of victory when things seem to be going really well and times of struggle when things seem to be falling apart. The way we process these ups and downs of life is extremely important as it sets the tone for everything in our lives. 

 
Kingdom Theology provides a worldview that allows us to embrace the tension in which we live. It is a worldview based upon the central message of Jesus that the kingdom of God has come, is coming, will be coming soon, and is delayed. 

 
Written in an easy to read conversational tone, Joshua Hopping’s book, The Here and Not Yet, seeks to develop a scriptural framework for Kingdom Theology before exploring how this worldview changes the way we live. In holding the tensions of life together, we are better able to respond to the challenges of life while following the lead of our king and savior, Jesus of Nazareth.

    If you are thoughtful, reflective, in tune with nature -- you are ready for more formal meditation -- and ready for this book.
    Meditation is a tool available to everyone; no matter how callous or spiritual, well-adjusted or complex one's life is. Knowing why and how to meditate are arguably the most important signals of approaching an enlightened life.
    These sixteen chapters follow the sequence of the Anapanasati Sutta, according to the Four Foundations of Meditation. The inspiration and teachings of the Satipatthana Sutta and the Dhammacakkappavattana
    Sutta: Setting the Wheel of Dhamma in Motion, the Buddha's first discourse, are incorporated. Beyond that autobiographical sketches inform the reader about how possible, natural, and easy meditation is.
    These simple facts are not disputed by most people, and the best thing that can be said about each teaching in this book is: I know that... I agree with that simple truth! The sequence of the book leads from one simple truth to the next following a logical path to eliminating suffering (Nirodha) in a practical way. The book can be read from front to back, or opened at any point by experienced meditators for inspirational ideas.

    Based on extensive cultural studies and long years of practice, Livia Kohn here creates a new typology of meditation based on six distinct ways of accessing the subconscious. In a special chapter on each type, she outlines the physiology, world view, and traditional practice as well as its modern medical adaptations and organizational settings. Providing a thorough theoretical framework combined with a comprehensive, analytical overview and extensive practical applications, the book greatly advances our understanding of meditation.

    Patience Creighton has devoted her life to running her father’s boarding school. But when the enigmatic master of the estate appears at her door, battered and unconscious, the young headmistress suddenly finds her livelihood—and her heart —in the hands of one dangerously handsome gentleman. 
    At twenty-five, Patience Creighton is already a spinster. The busy headmistress of Rosemere always expected a dashing man to sweep her off her feet and take her away . . . but that man never came. And since her father’s death, keeping the school running and her mother happy has been plenty to keep her occupied. 
    William Sterling dallied his way into financial trouble and mortal danger. When he is assaulted by his creditors’ henchmen on the road home from a tavern, he guides his horse to the doorstep of his tenant, the Rosemere School for Young Ladies. After being tended to by Patience, the wounded William rides off into the dawn—but makes a point to learn more about the lovely headmistress. 
    As he spends more time at Rosemere, something delicate begins to develop between William and Patience. But that will not deter William’s creditors. With little money to repay his debts, and less for the upkeep of his estate, it becomes clear that sacrificing Rosemere may be the only way to preserve his legacy. But it may also cost him his happiness.

    The purpose of life on earth is to realize who we are. Traditionally this had been called enlightenment, Self realization, salvation or being born again. The course of Self realization cannot be followed by reason alone or by faith or intuition alone but only in a balanced approach that includes both reasoned thought and intuition. Mankind in this current time is overburdened by thought which produces an overemphasis on doing and achieving whatever is sought in the future. In general, people consider life to be a brief struggle to gain standing among their fellows. People seek name fame and fortune in an effort to be special, to stand out or get ahead in life.
    
    Self realization or awareness of awareness as identity frees the mind from thought as identity and allows an entirely different understanding to motivate action. The individual becomes completely integrated in the one living Reality that is timeless, and needs no effort to be completely at peace as mankind. Words cannot express the nature of Self Realization and the worlds scriptures and holy books are written to help those who feel incomplete to free themselves from all suffering and negativity.
    
    This book is a study in intuition and a commentary on the nature of meditative practice. Meditation or concentrated attention reveals progressive awakening and freedom from the need to awaken as I AM. The intention of the reading is to awaken intuition or deepen its presence. Stillness of mind is infinitely attractive to the human soul and when thinking mind becomes allied with intuition the sense of peace and joy exists as the finality of understanding. There is no downside.
