Although Steiner did not often speak or write about love explicitly, love is at the very heart of his whole body of work and the foundation of his hopes for humankind and the Earth. Steiner teaches that, without love, nothing is possible; with love, however, we can do everything. Love is always "love of the not-yet." To love is to create; it is to selflessly enter the current of time that flows toward us from the future. Reality, true knowledge of reality, is impossible without love. Only through love can we truly know as we are know, can we encounter the world and its beings in a living way. Without love, knowledge becomes manipulation, domination, control; the world becomes a space of dead things. But, when we know through love, we enter into a pattern of dynamic, potentially redemptive relations and the world becomes a living world of beings working for the good. This collection gathers all of Rudolf Steiner's main lectures and writings related to love. From earthly love to the nature and function of spiritual love, these pieces are essential reading for anyone concerned with the future of humanity and the Earth. Love and Its Meaning in the World is essential reading for anyone who'd like to gain a deeper understanding of our true mission as human beings and the purpose of evolution on Earth. Chapters include: "The Division of the Sexes" "Lucifer and Christ" "The Mission of Reverence" "The Buddha's Teaching of Compassion and Love" "Faith, Love, and Hope" "Love & Its Meaning in the World" "'I'-Feeling, the Soul's Capacity to Love, and Their Relationship to the Elemental World" Love mediated by the senses is the wellspring of creative power, of what is coming into being. Without sense-born love, nothing material would exist in the world; without spiritual love, nothing spiritual can arise in evolution. When we practice love, cultivate love, creative forces pour into the world.... For human beings, love is the most important fruit of experience in the sensory world. Once we really understand the nature of love, or compassion, we will find that love is the way spirit expresses its truth in the world of the senses.... "We may even say that, in love, the spiritual world awakens in the physical. The more truly a soul inhabits the spiritual worlds, the more it experiences lovelessness and lack of compassion as a denial of spirit itself." --Rudolf Steiner

Meditative reflection--strengthening thinking and feeling through the will--is one of the main methods of experiencing Anthroposophy. "The best path to this goal," says Prokofieff, "is inner work with the Foundation Stone Meditation, because this meditation is the quintessence of the whole of Anthroposophy, given in meditatively inspired form by means of earthly words." Rudolf Steiner described the substance of the "Foundation Stone Meditation" as spoken by him "out of the will of the spiritual world," and as "verses heard from the Cosmic Word." Owing to its spiritual and mantric form, the text of this meditation represents an archetype and is thus a key to the most diverse areas of world and human existence. Depending on "which spiritual portal is opened with this key," explains Prokofieff, "one arrives at one result or another, and one and the same line of the meditation becomes a reply to the most varied questions." The author applies this method in this work and, in the process, illuminates and opens up many dimensions of spiritual science. His research embraces, among other aspects, the relationship of the "Foundation Stone Meditation" to the being Anthroposophia, the spiritual hierarchies, human karma, the Rosicrucian, Michaelic and Grail streams, the Mystery of Golgotha, the two Jesus children, the three spiritual sources of Anthroposophy, and even the Constitution of the General Anthroposophical Society.

This book is about the psychodynamics and treatment of schizoid disorders. These patients are pervasive in psychotherapeutic practice, but are often misdiagnosed as neurotic, borderline, or narcissistic. Far more attention is devoted in the literature to the narcissistic and borderline conditions than to this most common of the personality disorders. Schizoid patients go through the motions of daily living, but superficially, like robots, without any zest or enthusiasm. They may be involved in ongoing relationships and social situations, but they do not experience the joy or pain of living because a crucial part of their feelings has been radically repressed and isolated from their central personality. They have split off the emotional hunger for love, care, and contact, and at the heart of the personality there is a core of emptiness. The hunger for love, first felt as a vital, fleeting need, becomes a constant state of mind as it remains unmet. This state of mind is split off from the remaining personality, and gradually its needs are extinguished. The active emptiness of hunger becomes a frozen, static, lifeless emptiness. Thus, schizoid patients experience a death-in-life and a pervasive, compulsive conflictual hunger for things: food, drugs, sex, money, admiration, or tyranny over others to fill the empty core. They go through life as the living dead, hungering for things, as the vampire thirsts for blood to keep itself going. In treatment, these patients go through the motions of therapy without genuine involvement. Initially, therapists often mistake them for easy patients because they do not make inordinate demands. The therapist may forget to discuss the patient in supervision or never think of him between sessions. Dr. Seinfeld poignantly describes the apathy that gradually pervades the therapeutic relationship. A profound fear of rejection and merger underlies the patient's seeming indifference to the therapist, and the patient may drop out after a small mistake or a therapeutic lapse in empathy. Dr. Seinfeld shows how the therapist can engage these patients while avoiding the common therapeutic pitfalls. The book delineates the phases of the treatment process and presents clear guidelines for intervention, which requires exquisite timing and precision. With extensive clinical vignettes, Dr. Seinfeld guides the reader in reaching the lost, empty heart of the schizoid personality.

Millions of books have tackled the topic of love. Everyone has a love story to tell. Though most of our favorite writers have dedicated much time and effort to describe human love, there's still a popular misconception about this topic. We may assume we know what love is, but when challenges come, times get hard and relationships get rough, we quickly realize that we have only a superficial understanding of love. Many people talk about love but they don't show the fruits of love. Since the fall, humans have lost the real meaning of love. The world has a perverted understanding of love which is contrary to God's word. What many people call 'love' is not true love, but pleasant emotions. When God looks down on the earth, He sees no love. No man practices good; all are selfish! The human heart is the most deceitful above all things, and desperately sick beyond cure. It is very wicked, who really knows how bad it is? Love encompasses all the laws of God. The fact that no man can keep all God's laws, infers that no man possesses true love. The Law of Moses required a love which is not of this world. It is humanly impossible to love your neighbor as yourself, and even very much impossible to love God with all your heart, soul and body. Where on earth will you find such a sublime love? There is no such a thing as true love in this world; we receive it only from God. God pours His genuine love into our heart through the Holy Spirit. It is a type of love which surpasses all human understanding. It is the infinite love of God in the tiny human heart. No one can say, "I love Jesus more than my own life" except by the Holy Spirit. God is love, His very nature is love and He is the source of true love. God gives us the power to love Him and to love others. Only the one who knows Jesus Christ will display such pure love. If everyone could focus on love, the world would be a better place for all. Love should be the primary focus in every relationship, since the success of every human relationship depends on it. A great deal of emphasis should be put on how to express love and sexuality in the godly way. This book provides a holistic understanding of love from a biblical perspective and explains all the dimensions of love from the simplest gesture to the deepest affection. The purpose of this book is to provide in-depth teaching on true love, which will enable you to build healthy relationships with God and people. Because healthy relationships are a vital part of a healthy life. You also can't achieve your potential alone. To become successful in life and reach the highest version of yourself--you need to relate to others with genuine love. We must move from superficial feeling and experience the depth of the eternal nature of love.

"Black and Golden memories" is a collection of poetry and reality that will hit you hard and it will also help you to look at a new world, to view a better world. This book will encourage you to find the true meaning of love. Somewhere we all have black and golden memories in our life. I have picked up some of few moments and written them in my book. In this book, I divided the poem into four categories misery, realisation, imagination, and love. And the fact is our whole life depends on these four categories first we fall into love without understanding the actual meaning of love. It leads us to misery. Later we start to get hurt ourselves and once we get started to hurt, we enter the world of misery. Thereupon, we move to understand where we were wrong and we begin to realize everything from the start. And then, we succeed to know that the love we were thinking of wasn't actual love, or maybe it was one-sided love which you were thinking of two-sided. After some time we reach inside the world of Imagination where we create a new definition of love by ourselves. But in this process, we start to understand what's the real meaning of love. In the end, we find the love and stay there but only some person can achieve who knows the authentic meaning of love. Otherwise, it becomes a never-ending loop. This poetry book is not about misery, it's about the feeling and emotions when someone breaks our heart into pieces where we are unable to hold back ourselves. It's not about realisation, it's about knowing the truth and face the reality. It's not about the imaginations we had, it's all about how we want to do love and what we think about love. It's not about the love it's about ourselves, and the self-respect, trust which we are giving to our immortal soul. As I said this book will help you to know the truth of love and what is the purpose of living in this world...When we begin to understand ourselves entirely then we get to know love start within us. We all have the incredible power to heal ourselves. You just have to do three things Believe in yourself Believe in God Believe in the whole Universe So, let's start this journey with me A journey to heal myself A journey to change myself.

Exposes how ex-gay and postabortion ministries operate on a shared system of thought and analyzes their social implications.

A staple of the culture wars, the struggle between Christian conservatives and progressives over sexuality and reproductive rights continues. Focusing on ex-gay ministries geared to helping same-sex attracted people resist their sexuality and postabortion ministries dedicated to leading women who have had an abortion to repent that decision, Cynthia Burack argues that both are motivated and characterized by a strain of compassion that is particular to Christian conservatism rather than a bias and hatred toward sexual minorities and sexually active women. This compassion reproduces the sexual ideology of the Christian right and absolves Christian conservatives from responsibility for stigma and other forms of harm to postabortive and same-sex attracted people. Using the democratic theory of Hannah Arendt, the popular fiction of Ayn Rand, and the psychoanalytic thought of Melanie Klein, Burack studies the social and political effects of Christian conservative compassion.

'Love is the meaning' is the phrase chosen by the mystic 14th century writer Julian of Norwich to encapsulate all that had been revealed to her in the series of visions that led her to write one of world's greatest spiritual books, her Revelations of Divine Love which continues to inspire countless readers today.Its everyday imagery and warm intimacy set it apart from other great spiritual classics. Ann Lewin uses its homely qualities to provide the basis for an exploration of our own experiences of the spiritual life, and as we search for answers to life's big questions:How can we hold fast to the truth of God's love in the face of suffering and disaster?Does prayer change anything?How can Julian help us to speak freshly about God to our world?What do we do when God seems far away and silent?Can we actually believe that 'all will be well' as Julian did?These and other questions are explored here.

What are the most important things in life, and how can we live more ethical, fulfilling lives? In our modern world, it is not always easy to answer these questions; human needs and ethics have been obscured by the destructive demands of capitalism, colonialism, discrimination, militarism, and other sociopolitical forces. In Finding Meaning & Beauty in an Idiotic World, Wei-Ching Chang offers us a roadmap to thinking through these complex issues, distilling the meaning of life into a series of universal values pertaining to truth, goodness, and beauty. No social mechanism will be left uncovered, as Chang draws upon both Eastern and Western philosophies and the fields of literature, film, political science, and women’s studies to examine each one. The themes that emerge include reason over faith and intuition, the importance of freedom and equality in democracy, how to diminish the calamites of war and violence, and ultimately, how to act cooperatively with one another in the cultivating of worldwide ethics. The result is a thought-provoking tour de force that teaches us, through the power of logic, how we can better appreciate our own lives and act more generously to nurture the lives of others on both personal and global scales.
