Religions come in predetermined packages. They come with an approved name for the creator of existence, the name of their superstar, their all-star team, their approved beliefs, songs, and, in some cases, dress codes and dietary requirements. In A Guide for Spiritual Living, author Rev. George L. McLaird presents a wide variety of alternatives if you are uncomfortable with or frustrated by your present religious experience or spiritual condition, or if you have no idea where to begin searching for your own personal spiritual path.

It includes ideas for activities, contemplation, and self-nourishment, as well as advice for addicts to feed the spirit, mind, and body and exercises to help clarify your path. Advocating a holistic approach, McLaird teaches that spiritual living requires flexibilitygrowing, morphing, and constantly being revised, refreshed and reinvented. He helps you structure a spiritual path that is uniquely yours by showing you how to listen to your own internal dialogue and how to use that information for your growth. George is a spiritual guru of the highest order. People want what hes got and this book provides a roadmap for how to get it - a more spiritual, fulfilling, balanced and happy life.

Answers to the questions that arise on the spiritual path • Includes specially selected writings from the huge literary archive of Paul Brunton • Explains the different stages of meditation and the obstacles likely to arise for each, offering guidance for achieving advanced states of meditation to deepen one’s inner life • Challenges the need for spiritual dependency on any particular guru, teaching, or practice, showing that following your intuition can bring the best spiritual success • Explores the process of self-examination and emotional purification, revealing how to break free from the ego and tap into the inspiration flowing from within No matter where we are in our spiritual development, we all have questions about our practice and what we are experiencing--both the challenges and opportunities. How can I overcome my struggles to meditate more deeply? Is there a need for a guru or can I rely on myself? Can I trust my intuition? Is it possible to hear the “Inner Word,” the voice of the soul, and how can I be sure that’s what I’m hearing? Is the Higher Self in the heart? Offering trustworthy answers to these and many more questions, renowned spiritual teacher Paul Brunton provides instructions to guide one’s development in three fundamental areas of the spiritual path: meditation, self-examination, and the unfolding of awakening. Guiding you with insight and care through each stage of meditation, including advanced states that deepen one’s inner life, he explains how meditation is the art and practice of introverting attention, of freeing oneself for a period of time from thoughts, sensations, and feelings and allowing the soul to reveal itself out of the quiet that one has created. He explains the goal of each meditative stage and the obstacles you are likely to face and examines the need for spiritual dependency on any particular guru, teaching, or practice, showing that following your intuition can bring spiritual success. Exploring the process of self-examination and emotional purification, Brunton shows how life’s challenges are moments by which we can make real progress in our surrender to a higher life. He reveals how to break free from the ego, follow your intuition to align with your ideals, and tap into the inspiration flowing from within. He also examines the development of transcendental insight, the cornerstone of compassionate wisdom in action, which allows us to become a source of inspiration to all we encounter. Including writings received by the Paul Brunton Philosophic Foundation after his death, this guide offers transformative wisdom to aid our understanding of what the spiritual journey entails, help point the way when the way is uncertain, and learn and grow from the challenges that arise as you develop spiritually.

Spiritual Living: What Matters - and What Doesn't is for the person who wants a more rewarding spiritual life. Written in a lucid, conversational style, the book focuses on issues that really matter, clearing away linguistic and doctrinal stumbling blocks that often prevent spirituality from developing into religion. Pertinent questions after each chapter make this book ideal for discussion groups and spiritual retreats, as well as for the individual. It includes an annotated bibliography. "Without promoting a particular theological agenda, Helen Hills explores a wide range of questions with candor, clarity, and freshness. I heartily recommend this book as a mature starting point for deepening the journey of faith and a resource for discussion groups." Rev. Andrew Foster, Rector, Church of the Ascension, New York, N.Y. "Spiritual Living will be helpful not only to spiritual directors, clergy, and faith communities, but also, and perhaps especially for secular souls yearning for affirmation and advice beyond the boundaries of a particular religious tradition." Rev. K. Jeanne Person, Grace Church, Brooklyn, N.Y. "Helen Hills leaves room for skeptics to become believers and for believers to be skeptical. Her definition of spirituality is expansive rather than narrow. The book is written in a way that invites the reader into a dialogue with the author." Esther Haskell, Charlemon Federated Church, Charlemont, MA
