The spiritual path is like any other road—it’s going to have its share of potholes and detours. Safe travel requires a quality rarely taught yet critically important in today’s world: discernment. In Eyes Wide Open, Mariana Caplan supports us in cultivating the acute judgment and discrimination that will help us to live a spiritual life with intelligence, clarity, and authenticity. Is enlightenment less about fireworks and bliss and more about dismantling illusions? How do we fully integrate our practice into daily living? What’s the best way to work with the ego and the shadow? Eyes Wide Open explores these questions and more, offering practitioners from any tradition—or those just getting started—a traveler’s guide through “the labyrinth of increasing subtlety” that defines a genuine spiritual life. Eyes Wide Open has received the following awards: 2010 Gold IPPY—New Age (Mind-Body-Spirit) 2010 Gold Living Now Award—Enlightenment/Spirituality 2010 Silver Nautilus Award—Spirituality

Eyes Wide Open: How to Make Smart Decisions in a Confusing World is Noreena Hertz’s practical, cutting-edge guide to help you cut through the data deluge and make smarter and better choices, based on her highly popular TED talk. In this eye-opening handbook, the internationally noted speaker, economics expert, and bestselling author of IOU: The Debt Threat and Silent Takeover reveals the extent to which the biggest decisions in our lives are often made on the basis of flawed information, weak assumptions, corrupted data, insufficient scrutiny of others, and a lack of self-knowledge. To avert such disasters, Hertz persuasively argues, we need to become empowered decision-makers, capable of making high-stakes choices and holding accountable those who advise us. In Eyes Wide Open, she weaves together scientific research with real-world examples from Hollywood to Harry Potter, NASA to World War Two spies, to construct a path to more astute and empowered decision-making in ten clear steps. With a razor-sharp intellect and an instinct for popular storytelling, she offers counter-intuitive, actionable guidance for making better choices—whether you are a business-person, a professional, a patient, or a parent.

In Eyes Wide Open, Isaac Lidsky draws on his experience of achieving immense success, joy, and fulfillment while losing his sight to a blinding disease to show us that it isn’t external circumstances, but how we perceive and respond to them, that governs our reality. Fear has a tendency to give us tunnel vision—we fill the unknown with our worst imaginings and cling to what’s familiar. But when confronted with new challenges, we need to think more broadly and adapt. When Isaac Lidsky learned that he was beginning to go blind at age thirteen, eventually losing his sight entirely by the time he was twenty-five, he initially thought that blindness would mean an end to his early success and his hopes for the future. Paradoxically, losing his sight gave him the vision to take responsibility for his reality and thrive. Lidsky graduated from Harvard College at age nineteen, served as a Supreme Court law clerk, fathered four children, and turned a failing construction subcontractor into a highly profitable business. Whether we’re blind or not, our vision is limited by our past experiences, biases, and emotions. Lidsky shows us how we can overcome paralyzing fears, avoid falling prey to our own assumptions and faulty leaps of logic, silence our inner critic, harness our strength, and live with open hearts and minds. In sharing his hard-won insights, Lidsky shows us how we too can confront life's trials with initiative, humor, and grace. From the Hardcover edition.

In our postmodern world, we are so driven by our emotions that in "living for the moment" we've forgotten to guard our most precious treasure--our hearts. Young people may not realize it, but acts that appear innocent--such as email and instant messages--can entangle our emotions and lead the heart to places it should not go. Most people give their hearts away long before they give their bodies away, so it is imperative that young people learn the importance of emotional purity, how to avoid the steps that too often lead to a physical downfall, and how to live pure lives. Like talking to a big sister who's gone before them, reading Eyes Wide Open will give young people the necessary keys for making decisions about purity, love, and romance. She also shows them how to acquire a thirst for purity as they realize it is not just another rule, but a path that leads to a dimension of deep and fresh living where they can truly thrive.

""With integrity and wisdom, John Breeding has written a groundbreaking book that deserves the attention of every responsible parent. His absorbing Eyes Wide Open is a wake-up call to parents whose children desperately need protection against the many forms of oppression and exploitation they are now being routinely subjected to."" - Leonard Roy Frank, Activist and Editor of The Electroshock Quotation Description'Eyes Wide Open' is an effort to shed some light on the amazing and seemingly unlimited capacity of our species to live and act from a place of denial and unreality. It seems we humans are intensely vulnerable to conditioning, and that large numbers of us misperceive reality and act in destructive ways as a result. Using this book Prof. Breeding attempts to explain how this happens and offers a few thoughts on a way out. The book consists of two parts. Book 1, 'A 21st Century Manifesto for Parenting', is a practical confrontation of some things parents must face about our highly distressed society in order to protect their children. Book 2, 'Eyes Wide Open', is a sequel, confronting the fact that protecting our own individual children is not enough, that without significant change in the way humans govern the world, our children will not have a future. This little book tries to crack a chink in the colossus of denial and ignorance, the notion being, to paraphrase the great songwriter, Leonard Cohen, that the crack is where the light gets in. About the AuthorProf. John Breeding is a father of two from Texas, USA, he was born in 1952. He is a psychology professor who became aware of the problem of modern psychiatry whilst working in mental health services. He always intended to become a Catholic priest until his teens, this would account for the 'spiritual' aspect of his thinking. He is extremely active in campaigning on the negative effects that prescribed medication can have on youngsters in the US.

We're living in an Ah-Ha moment. Take 250 years of human ingenuity. Add abundant fossil fuels. The result: a population and lifestyle never before seen. The downsides weren't visible for centuries, but now they are. Suddenly everything needs rethinking Ð suburbs, cars, fast food, cheap prices. It's a changed world. This book explains it. Not with isolated facts, but the principles driving attitudes and events, from vested interests to denial to big-country syndrome. Because money is as important as molecules in the environment, science is joined with politics, history, and psychology to provide the briefing needed to comprehend the 21st century. Extensive back matter, including a glossary, bibliography, and index, as well as numerous references to websites, provides further resources.
