PRIMAL RELIGIONS, PRIMAL PASSIONS: An excerpt from AND LIVE REJOICING by Huston Smith
By Publicity Admin

Spiritual trailblazer Huston Smith, who passed away on Friday, December 30, 2016 at age 97, was a preeminent teacher of world religions. 

He wrote comprehensive books about religion and memoirs of his own life, but nowhere did he merge the two elements of seeking and experience with such storytelling flair as he did in And Live Rejoicing, a book that New World Library is proud to have published. 

We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt from the book, in which Huston discusses Native Americans and indigenous cultures. May he rest in peace.

HOW TO STOP THE CYCLE OF DOUBTING YOURSELF, QUITTING, AND LOOKING FOR A MAGICAL SOLUTION by guest blogger Jennifer Louden, author of THE LIFE ORGANIZER
By Publicity Admin

I can’t stand it anymore! Too many amazingly talented women whose gifts the world desperately needs are stuck in a debilitating cycle of self-doubt, quitting, then looking for a magic solution. It’s keeping too many of us from getting what we most want. It’s blocking us from creating the impact, satisfaction, and happiness that we crave — and the world so needs!

It drives me batty. Batty!

And I understand this cycle and know it all too well. I wasted too many years and too much money doubting myself and looking for someone to tell me what to do.

It is a mission of mine to help stop this cycle FOREVER.

Hope and Fear: An excerpt from THE ACTIVIST’S TAO TE CHING by William Martin
By Publicity Admin

In these challenging times, the need for activism is greater than ever before. William Martin, author of The Activist’s Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for a Modern Revolution, writes, “We have learned the secret of transformation: Injustice feeds our determination. Hate increases our love. Wounds bring forth our healing, and fear uncovers our courage and serenity.”

We hope you’ll take a quiet moment to read this excerpt from The Activist’s Tao Te Ching:

Both hope and fear are hollow companions.
Each will trigger anxious thoughts.
If hope and fear drive us,
our actions will be built on unstable ground.
We will always second-guess our moves,
looking over our shoulder, fearful
even of our friends,
squabbling among ourselves,
blaming and praising in a futile attempt
to control people and events.
