"Joseph Beuys, Matthew Barney, James Turrell, and Andy Goldsworthy are artists who differ in style, yet they all defy the trends that have diminished art's potential in recent decades. They understand that art is a transformative practice drawing inspiration directly and indirectly from ancient and modern, Eastern and Western forms of spirituality. For Beuys, anthroposophy, alchemy, and shamanism drive his multimedia presentations; for Barney and Goldsworthy, Celtic mythology informs their art; and for Turrell, Quakerism and Hopi myth and ritual shape his vision"--Publisher description.

"A Morning Resolve," an Episcopal prayer printed on the inside front cover of Forward Day by Day, is a "help me tend my spiritual garden" prayer. It asks for God's help in living a simple, sincere, and serene life--by repelling negative thoughts and attitudes (discontent, anxiety, discouragement, impurity, and self-seeking), cultivating positive attitudes (cheerfulness, magnanimity, charity, and the habit of holy silence), exercising graceful activities (economy in expenditure, diligence in appointed service, fidelity to every trust, and a childlike faith in God), practicing faithful daily habits (work, study, prayer, physical exercise, eating, and sleep), and depending on God for the strength and the will to do so. This unique devotional book for personal or small group discipleship/spiritual formation utilizes this daily prayer to guide readers as they examine and meditate on a portion of the prayer each week and examine and employ spiritual disciplines. Ultimately, the intentional crafting of a simple, sincere, and serene life is a spiritual discipline, too. Morning Resolve will guide readers into the spiritual practices that bear good fruit for a grace-filled life.

The radical journey into The Mystique of Spiritual Enlightenment demands the death of our mind. But our mind never wants to die. That is why it doesn't want to know the facts, secrets, and realities of life as well as spiritual enlightenment but tries to live in fantasies like the presence of immortal soul or spirit or human consciousness that never born never die. From the very first page of this radical book, we directly move into the shocking facts and realities of our existence that our analytical mind and its false self, the ego, never wants to accept. But the facts are facts. Indeed, this radical journey through spiritual enlightenment is tough and challenging, but Surinder Leen makes it understandable through examples, reasoning, science knowledge, practical and an easy question-answer format. WHO SHOULD BUY THIS BOOK? - This book is for those people who have a curious, scientific, reasoning, honest, practical and open mind. WHO SHOULD NOT BUY THIS BOOK? - This book is not for people who are the blind believer, dogmatic, conditioned, not curious to learn something new, blamer, fearful, stick to a particular religion and tradition. If you come to this category, then don't waste your time and money here as this book can make your beliefs upside down. SURINDER LEEN (Author) is a sort of philosopher, author, and teacher who has no link with any particular religion and tradition. He writes and tells about the things exactly what they are. He lives in Calgary Canada.
