This program is read by the author. A best-selling author and rabbi´s profoundly affecting exploration of the meaning and purpose of the soul, inspired by the famous correspondence between Albert Einstein and a grieving rabbi. ´´A human being is part of the whole, called by us ´Universe´, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings as something separate from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness....´´ (Albert Einstein) When Rabbi Naomi Levy came across this poignant letter by Einstein, it shook her to her core. His words perfectly captured what she has come to believe about the human condition: that we are intimately connected and that we are blind to this truth. Levy wondered what had elicited such spiritual wisdom from a man of science. Thus began a three-year search into the mystery of Einstein´s letter and into the mystery of the human soul. What emerges is an inspiring, deeply affecting audiobook for people of all faiths filled with universal truths that will help us reclaim our own souls and glimpse the unity that has been evading us. We all long to see more expansively, to live up to our gifts, to understand why we are here. In Einstein and the Rabbi, Levy leads us on a breathtaking journey full of wisdom, empathy, and humor, challenging us to wake up and heed the voice calling from within - a voice beckoning us to become who we were born be. 1.

Have you ever thought about how your seemingly insignificant life events have formed who you are? How intriguing it is to look back and discover how your current life path is directly, or indirectly, connected to your past! Emerging present moments and fading past events surprisingly, yet naturally, bring gratitude in life. From the ordinary to the unusual, this book chronicles a little girl’s journey through the joyous ups and painful downs of searching for life’s gift of gratitude. Life’s important lessons were revealed to her through everything from positive influences found in unexpected teachers, injustice in school from pre-kindergarten to college, ordinary friends around her daily life, unfairness inherent in some Japanese traditions, typical family dynamics, uncovering family secrets, fantasies of being French, and the bursting forth of an unspeakable voice. In Gift of Gratitude, author Claire E. Hallinan shares her gratitude for the gifts that she was given by her past: the ability to think of all experiences as positive, the strengths that she determined to be resilient, and the future that she believed to be hopeful through her unique learning experiences. It is these gifts that she is able to share in her very own classroom as a teacher today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jennifer Groberg.

In this work, the well-known apologist Sir Robert Anderson examines spiritual phenomena like glossolalia by searching the Bible and taking history into account.He argues that the theology of the ´´gift of tongues movement´´ reveals enormous ignorance and that it perverts Scripture. As an example, he cites Pentecost and how the glossolalists’ observance of it subordinates the core events to secondary ones of limited worth. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Vince Whittaker.

You will find tonight very practical, and yet I assure you, very, very spiritual. Christianity has to be continually redeemed from secular history, for Jesus Christ is the human imagination. As Paul tells us in his first Letter to the Corinthians: ´´We have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might understand the gifts bestowed upon us by God.´´ Now tonight we´ll show you one of these gifts if you really understand who Jesus Christ is. I tell you, He is your own wonderful human imagination. That is Christ. It comes as a shock when you first hear it if you were raised in the tradition as the speaker was. I was raised in a Christian home; and naturally, like hundreds of millions of Christians, we were taught it as a secular history: a little boy who was born of a woman who knew not a man, and that his father was God, and he was the son of God; and that was the story as I was taught it. But I was searching and seeking from the time I think I can remember. I believed the story as mother taught it to me. I did believe it. And I can´t tell anyone the shock that was mine; and sometimes, maybe, I wondered if it would not have been better to turn back, like Israel in the desert, and go back into slavery; but I couldn´t, any more than they could. They had to keep moving towards the Promised Land. For when you are disillusioned, having been taught the story as we all have been taught it, to discover that he is not something in history - he is nearer than your breathing - in fact, he can´t even be ´´near´´; he is your very self; he is your own wonderful human imagination - it comes as quite a shock. 1.

Many people go through their entire lives not realizing why they feel ´´different´´ or why they don´t ´´fit´´ in with their peers. They may be teased and chastised. They may struggle to make sense of the world. Other people may look at them oddly. They may grow into old age as reclusive and avoidant of others. They don´t know why they feel ´´different´´, just that they do feel as though they came from another world. If any of these things describes you, odds are good that you are an indigo child or indigo adult. If you are fortunate, you have grown up in a family of indigo children and indigo adults. You are aware that you are ´´special´´, that your family is genetically ´´special´´, and that you can grow or enhance your gifts and abilities. If you are unlucky, you have grown up in a family that hides and punishes you for being ´´different´´. Your parents or teachers may have labeled you as ´´spacey´´, ´´inattentive´´, ´´eccentric´´, and ´´quirky´´. They may have put you into special classes or even medicated you to quiet down your active mind. Maybe you are a parent of an indigo child, and you are curious about opening up your child´s skills, gifts and abilities. These abilities might initially scare the parents, teachers, or the child. However, once a person realizes that these abilities are special ´´gifts´´ that can be used for good, instead of bad purposes, the gifts and abilities become easier to work with, more targeted, and much less frightening. You may be in shock or awe. You may be searching for answers. We will try to give you some of the answers in this book as to why you or your loved one has these abilities when others don´t seem to have the same abilities. We will explain why children are more open to the abilities. We will discuss the various gifts and abilities that you might have. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tina Strong.
