Carlos Castaneda takes the reader into the very heart of sorcery, challenging both imagination and reason, shaking the very foundations of our belief in what is "natural" and "logical." His landscape is full of terrors and mysterious forces, as sharply etched as a flash of lightning on the deserts and mountains where don Juan takes him to pursue the sorcerer’s knowledge—the knowledge that it is the Eagle that gives us, at our births, a spark of awareness, that it expects to reclaim at the end of our lives and which the sorcerer, through his discipline, fights to retain. Castaneda describes how don Juan and his party, left thisworld—"the warriors of don Juan’s party had caught me for an eternal instant, before they vanished into the total light, before the Eagle let them go through"—and how he, himself, upon witnessing such a sight, jumped into the abyss.

Soaring With Eagles is a book of devotional meditations upon the book of James. It helps us to deal with our trouble and suffering. I want to be in the line in Heaven, waiting to talk to James about his book. I want to recite my heartbreaks and ask James, "Should I have been happy about these?" I already anticipate his response, "Yes, for suffering stretches you and brings all the character that God has already placed within you to the surface, or it diminishes you because you do not see its intended purpose and accept it." The growth that suffering awakens in us will produce real faith, which shows itself in ministry to the poor, disenfranchised, downtrodden and needy people around us. This book is for all those who want to become real Christians instead of plastic Christians. All who yearn for true greatness should benefit from reading Soaring With Eagles. Readers should learn to laugh when suffering comes their way, knowing that suffering can be a gift from God. Soaring With Eagles should prepare readers for the time when life tumbles in. And, when it does, we will be drawn toward God instead of retreating away from Him.

The Grove of Eagles

A Novel of Elizabethan England

Author: Winston Graham

Category: Fiction

Page: 656

Set in the last years of Elizabeth I's reign, Winston Graham's The Grove of Eagles seamlessly blends historical fact and fiction in a rich tale full of unforgettable characters. In 1588 the Spanish Armada had been defeated in the English Channel and the whole of Elizabethan England was alert for the revenge that surely had to follow. On the Cornish coast, men like John Killigrew - in charge of the castle at Pendennis - were vital to the survival of the country, and on their backs rested the trust of those defending the nation. His eldest but base-born son, Maugan, emerges in the novel, through his loneliness and his love, as a touchingly honest and believable character who is, above all things, a man of his word.

"The events that inspired these verses are collections of memories and fragments that have merged to form poems. The stories of loving experiences between players, that looking for love or company ended up with a wounded heart. These stanzas represent detailed images of the experiences leading to disenchantments and frustrations that loving and losing produces; without forgetting the sublime rapture and ecstasy that loving also inspires. These verses touch the essence of the heart and soul, appealing to that collective need we call love; that human sentiment so powerful, that it can make us touch heaven or sink us to darkest depths of hell."

When a loved one dies, it is a difficult time to make decisions. Yet families must make many decisions in a short period of time, including ones about the funeral service itself. Now those who are frustrated by the process of selecting Bible texts and themes for their loved one's prayer vigil have a resource to help them in their hour of need. On Eagles' Wings provides ten thematic prayer services designed for use at funeral vigils or as alternative funeral services. The theme of each service is described in a brief paragraph, allowing family and clergy to select the one most appropriate for the deceased. Each service is complete (including a bulletin format), yet there is flexibility for individual input. And the services can be led by either clergy or lay leaders, an especially helpful feature for congregations that are serviced by part-time clergy.

The Eagles' Brood by Jack Whyte continues the saga of the Colony known as Camulod, and the tale of the descendants of those brave Romans who forged a new way of life for the Celt and Roman peoples when the Roman legions departed Britain. Most know the new leader of the Colony as Merlyn; all call him Commander. Cauis Merlyn Britannicus is responsible for their safety, and all look to him for guidance, leadership, justice, and salvation. It is a harsh life but a good community, and Merlyn is dedicated to spreading the influence of Roman culture beyond the Colony's borders. Uther Pendragon, the man who will father the legendary Arthur, is the cousin Merlyn has known and loved since they were birthed, four hours apart on the same day, the year the legions left Britain. He is the tireless warrior--the red dragon to Merlyn's great silver bear--and between the two of them, the Colony knows few enemies. As different as they can be, they are inseparable: two faces of the same coin. In a world torn apart by warfare and upheaval, each is the other's certainty and guarantee of the survival of the Colony . . . until a vicious crime, one that strikes at the roots of Merlyn's life, drives a wedge between them. A wedge that threatens the fate of a nation . . . . At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

On Wings of Eagles

The Secret Operation of the Ethiopian Exodus

Category: History

Told through diary entries interspersed with the stories of many Ethiopian Jews in their own words, this is the gripping account of the Jewish Agency's co-ordinator of Ethiopian aliyah as he worked over a decade to free the Beta Israel from shocking conditions. With Ethiopia overrun by rebels, the Jews had left their villages in northern Ethiopia by the thousands to trek for weeks to the Sudan. There, in squalid refugee camps, untold numbers died of disease and malnutrition. Those left alive were motivated only by the desire to return to Zion. Starving, preyed-upon, and often separated from their families in heartbreaking ways, the refugees also faced stark cultural adjustments in Israel. When Israel was able to open an embassy in Ethiopia in January 1990, the author went to Addis Ababa, where his crowning achievement as the Jewish Agency s representative and Israeli consul was overseeing the immigration of over fourteen thousand Jews from the besieged city in the dramatic two-day Operation Solomon in May 1991. This modern-day Exodus story is a heart-warming tale of the love of one man for Ethiopian Jewry as he devoted himself to their struggle to go up to Jerusalem.

Russia and Soul

An Exploration

Publisher: Cornell University Press

Category: Social Science

Page: 364

This ethnography of everyday life in contemporary Russia is also an examination of discourses and practices of "soul" or dusha. Russian soul has historically appeared as a myth, a consoling fiction, and a trope of national and individual self-definition that drew romantic foreigners to Russia. Dale Pesmen shows that in the 1990s this "soul" was scorned, worshipped, and used to create, manipulate, and exploit cultural capital. Pesmen focuses on "soul" in part as what people chose to do and how they did it, especially practices considered "definitive" of Russians, such as hospitality, the use of alcoholic beverages, steam baths, Russian language, music, and suffering. Attempting to avoid narrow definitions of soul as a thing, Pesmen developed a new way of structuring ethnographic interviews.During her stay in a formerly "closed" military industrial city and surrounding villages, Pesmen spent time on public transportation and in kitchens, steam baths, vegetable gardens, shops, and workplaces. She uses stories from her fieldwork along with examples from the media and literature to introduce a phenomenology of russkaia dusha and of related American and other non-Russian metaphysical notions, exploring diverse elements in their makeup, examining and questioning the world created when people believe in the existence of such "deep," "vast," "enigmatic," "internal" centers. Among theoretical issues she addresses are those of power, community, self, exchange, coherence, and morality. Pesmen's attention to dusha gives her a multifaceted perspective on Russian culture and society and informs her rich portrayal of life in a Russian city at a historically critical moment.
