Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The ring shout is the oldest known African American performance tradition surviving on the North American continent. Performed for the purpose of religious worship, this fusion of dance, song, and percussion survives today in the Bolton Community of McIntosh County, Georgia. Incorporating oral history, first-person accounts, musical transcriptions, photographs, and drawings, Shout Because You're Free documents a group of performers known as the McIntosh County Shouters. Derived from African practices, the ring shout combines call-and-response singing, the percussion of a stick or broom on a wood floor, and hand-clapping and foot-tapping. First described in depth by outside observers on the sea islands of South Carolina and Georgia during the Civil War, the ring shout was presumed to have died out in active practice until 1980, when the shouters in the Bolton community first came to the public's attention. Shout Because You're Free is the result of sixteen years of research and fieldwork by Art and Margo Rosenbaum, authors of Folk Visions and Voices. The book includes descriptions of present-day community shouts, a chapter on the history of the shout's African origins, the recollections of early outside observers, and later folklorists' comments. In addition, the tunes and texts of twenty-five shout songs performed by the McIntosh County Shouters are transcribed by ethnomusicologist Johann S. Buis.Shout Because You're Free is a fascinating look at a unique living tradition that demonstrates ties to Africa, slavery, and Emancipation while interweaving these influences with worship and oneness with the spirit.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Jerrilyn McGregory explores sacred music and spiritual activism in a little-known region of the South, the Wiregrass Country of Georgia, Alabama, and North Florida. She examines African American sacred music outside of Sunday church-related activities, showing that singing conventions and anniversary programs fortify spiritual as well as social needs. In this region African Americans maintain a social world of their own creation. Their cultural performances embrace some of the most pervasive forms of African American sacred music—spirituals, common meter, Sacred Harp, shape-note, traditional, and contemporary gospel. Moreover, the contexts in which they sing include present-day observations such as the Twentieth of May (Emancipation Day), Burial League Turnouts, and Fifth Sunday. Rather than tracing the evolution of African American sacred music, this ethnographic study focuses on contemporary cultural performances, almost all by women, which embrace all forms. These women promote a female-centered theology to ensure the survival of their communities and personal networks. They function in leadership roles that withstand the test of time. Their spiritual activism presents itself as a way of life. In Wiregrass Country, “You don't have to sing like an angel” is a frequently expressed sentiment. To these women, “good” music is God's music regardless of the manner delivered. Therefore, Downhome Gospel presents gospel music as being more than a transcendent sound. It is local spiritual activism that is writ large. Gospel means joy, hope, expectation, and the good news that makes the soul glad.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the popular legend of Pocahontas to the Civil War soap opera Gone with the Wind to countless sculpted heads of George Washington that adorn homes and museums, whole industries have emerged to feed America’s addiction to imaginary histories that cover up the often violent acts of building a homogeneous nation. In Ersatz America, Rebecca Mark shows how this four-hundred-year-old obsession with false history has wounded democracy by creating language that is severed from material reality. Without the mediating touchstones of body and nature, creative representations of our history have been allowed to spin into dangerous abstraction. Other scholars have addressed the artificial qualities of the collective American memory, but what distinguishes Ersatz America is that it does more than simply deconstruct--it provides a map for regeneration. Mark contends that throughout American history, citizen artists have responded to the deadly memorialization of the past with artistic expressions and visual artifacts that exist outside the realm of official language, creating a counter narrative. These examples of what she calls visceral graphism are embodied in and connected to the human experience of indigenous peoples, enslaved Africans, and silenced women, giving form to the unspeakable. We must learn, Mark suggests, to read the markings of these works against the iconic national myths. In doing so, we can shift from being mesmerized by the monumentalism of this national mirage to embracing the regeneration and recovery of our human history.

There are keys and tools that are given throughout the book which develops strength, accountability, and a renewed mind. Once you apply these tools and have a plan set for yourself, then you will begin to see the change that you've longed for your entire life. There's a twenty-eight-day outline that this book follows; and in that, time it will begin your life long process. You can live an amazing life and not be hindered or weighed down by the stronghold of weight. "So don't let weight consume you. Let it fuel you!"

Book excerpt: Volume ten includes Chögyam Trungpa's three most recent books and many selected writings. The Collected Works of Chögyam Trungpa brings together in ten volumes the writings of one of the first and most influential and inspirational Tibetan teachers to present Buddhism in the West. Organized by theme, the collection includes full-length books as well as articles, seminar transcripts, poems, plays, and interviews, many of which have never before been available in book form. From memoirs of his escape from Chinese-occupied Tibet to insightful discussions of psychology, mind, and meditation; from original verse and calligraphy to the esoteric lore of tantric Buddhism—the impressive range of Trungpa’s vision, talents, and teachings is showcased in this landmark series. Volume Ten begins with Chögyam Trungpa’s three most recent books: Work, Sex, Money, Mindfulness in Action, and Devotion and Crazy Wisdom. The first two books in the volume emphasize the importance of meditation in action and bringing awareness, mindfulness, intentionality, and a sense of the sacred into everyday life. The third book explores devotion and discusses mutual commitment and surrendering between teacher and student. The selected writings in this volume range from older articles originally published in the Vajradhatu Sun to recently edited articles, including several that have not yet appeared in print. Overall, these articles show us how Trungpa Rinpoche worked deeply and directly with many interest groups and subsections of the community, and how he infused each situation with dharma, taking every opportunity to present essential teachings.

You agree that the path before you will be lit as you walk it, and not a moment before.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: If you have some penetration to see Jesus’ teaching in four Gospels, you know that Jesus doesn’t call Jehovah as God or Father. God or Father seen with the word of truth are not different expression with a morality, a true self, a void, the sky, nothing said in the Oriental Philosophy. Over 2000 years the Christian has been called or believed as “pray as name of Jesus, Amen” but captured in the religion fence, turn away their faces from the word of truth, the true Jesus’ teaching and volunteering a slave action cheated by the false of Jehovah with begging and imploring as if the key of relief for Jesus’ death of cross and the revival miracle, they don’t live the true love or the life mercy in not escaping from all the biding or scare. Now we have to live in the true freedom and happiness going beyond living and death getting a perceive treasure likely to Jesus escaping from mind illusion with the treasure map of the word given to us by Jesus, the way, the truth and the life as the light drives out the darkness. Being spiritually awakened, that is, you see the God, meet and this is the relief to enter into the God’s heaven with the forever life. Reviews: “Jesus is not Jehovah’s son” is very awful and shocking idea. What they just believe the different of Jehovah and Paul is like to get a graph from a horn bush. Luther couldn’t change the religion but this book called the big revolution over the religion. -- Man Sung Park, Carpenter Jesus is not the Son of Yahweh (Jehovah) is the one of the greatest book that defines the truth that Jesus want to teach easily and clearly. As the writer say, if we would know the truth that teaches by Jesus, the Christianity and Buddhism would meet each other and the human would finds the true freedom and happiness which is high dimension over the religion. -- Seung Taek Lee, Prof of University of Foreign Studies This book is to understand easily for Christianity problem that views the reader’s mind deeply. This book is not picked up various stories but is expressed what the writer who realized the truth felt and saw through in deep mind. The Gospel in Brief written by Leo Tolstoy is even for the starting to question for Christianity but this book is important to complete Jesus’ teaching. --Jung Bu Jo, Student of Theological School Read this book, what oppose other’s religions and we call heresy or Satan in same religions is because they all don’t know the truth. I respect more Jesus, foresighted leader realized, after read this book. I hope it’s not only all the people find the order and the peace met each other, but also all the religion by this book. --Ye Jin Lee, Teacher of Middle School Why don’t Theologians and Ministers know this contents yet? They can’t find the truth to know easily like this for 2000 years long. The refinding the truth in Jesus’ teaching is the most popular, important event in the world and it will be a bright light for all human. --Woo Nyun Lee, Farmer I went church for 50 years long, but in my mind I always got a question and a doubt. However, this book clears all the question and doubt. I’ve never heard the book detailed and lectures quoted like this Bible for Jesus’ Teachings. I knew now that praying in the Church “the Apostles’ Creed” or the doctrine of Christ are not fixed anything else. -- Jun Su Kim, Rep. Publishing Firm. “Jesus said if the person who would eat my flesh and blood, they will live forever.” It does not mean that if they believe the blood split from Jesus and the revival of Jesus, they got a forgiveness and a relief and go to the heaven. This book defines that if they follow Jesus’ teaching and get the new life beyond the life and death. -- Chang Suk Kim, Homemaker It’s the first time to see the uninteresting and difficult book. It’s uneasy to understand and a lot to accept in my mind. But it’s a book of low balance to blame whom or to support. I am going to compare the contents of this book and t

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Everyone has a story to tell, and I selected to tell my story through my blog formerly called: Monday Morning Bluees, which is an acronym for "Believe Life Uses Everyone and Everything Spiritually." I have endured many hurts, mistakes, lessons, pains, failures, heartbreaks, disappointments, hardships, and struggles throughout my life, but I have also been on the receiving end of countless success stories, miracles, breakthroughs, victories, accomplishments, awards, accolades, and other blessings. I have come to accept that life is filled with polarities, and I came to this time-space reality to experience All of life including both its ups and its downs, (mostly ups). I am learning that I gain strength and momentum when I go through uncomfortable situations, circumstances, and experiences. Reflecting on my lifes story allows me an opportunity to release and heal my past. I now have a greater appreciation for where I have been, a warm acceptance and peace for where I am presently; and a clearer perspective on where I am going. My intention for this work is to shed light on issues that many females face and provide comfort in knowing that we are not alone on this journey I call Life.
