Brief exercises will help you get calm), and finally overcoming those pesky bad habits. Close Your Eyes, Get Free offers an overview of the techniques of self-hypnosis, along with the "big picture": how we developed our nasty habits (aka: who brainwashed you and how); how to reprogram our subconscious minds (aka: how to brainwash yourself . . . it's fun!); how to boost your self-esteem by using what advertising companies have known for years (rather than strip it away so you'll buy unnecessary stuff); and a multitude of life-altering, mood-enhancing stories of redemption that will spur you on in your own life.

Crucible of Faith
By Philip Jenkins
One of America's foremost scholars of religion examines the tumultuous era that gave birth to the modern Judeo-Christian traditionIn The Crucible of Faith, Philip Jenkins argues that much of the Judeo-Christian tradition we know today was born between 250-50 BCE, during a turbulent "Crucible Era." It was during these years that Judaism grappled with Hellenizing forces and produced new religious ideas that reflected and responded to their changing world. By the time of the fall of the Temple in 70 CE, concepts that might once have seemed bizarre became normalized-and thus passed on to Christianity and later Islam. Drawing widely on contemporary sources from outside the canonical Old and New Testaments, Jenkins reveals an era of political violence and social upheaval that ultimately gave birth to entirely new ideas about religion, the afterlife, Creation and the Fall, and the nature of God and Satan.

By J.C. Amberchele
This book is a collection of reflections and observations about life before and after I came to prison, as currently seen from the perspective of this Awake Emptiness at my core. I am profoundly grateful to the late Douglas Harding and his friends for helping me to see Who I Really Am, and to thus break the bonds of contraction and confusion that defined my criminal past. Truly without deserving it, I have been blessed with the miracle of inner freedom, the turnaround of turnarounds, what Harding referred to as the no-meter path to heaven. This book is about living and failing to live the awakened life, and how discovering one's Emptiness-one's divinity-is the difference between the two, which, as it turns out, were never two to begin with. As Harding often said, you cannot fix yourself from the level of the self. Only the One who is Other and yet not other, who is both No-thing and Everything, who is at the very heart of you as Who You Really Are, can transform your life.

The Church Awakening
By Charles R. Swindoll
In THE CHURCH AWAKENING, Charles R. Swindoll discusses the challenges, struggles, and priorities of the church in the 21st century. He reveals the problems inherent in the entertainment-based postmodern church and shows how a return to biblical teaching will restore its strength and impact. Now being replaced by a feel-good message instead of what Christians need to know to stand strong in a world that's lost its way, Swindoll exposes the problems and offers solutions for the postmodern evangelical church. Just as he opened readers' eyes with his bold statements in The Grace Awakening, Swindoll now explains how to reestablish the church as a life-altering experience, based on the principles of Jesus' teaching.
