What is Wrong with Us?: Essays in Cultural Pathology by Eric Coombes
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.2MB
Overview: Can any of us entirely banish from our hearts and minds grave misgivings about the condition of the culture we now inhabit? Expressions of those misgivings are mostly unheard in public forums, ignored in the dominant media, and, if noticed at all, dismissed by state-supported bureaucracies and commercial vested interests. To have any chance of gaining attention, they must resolve themselves into coherent forms. We need to clarify our perceptions of the things that trouble us, by articulating and developing our thoughts about them. That is, we are in need of serious criticism-serious criticism, aesthetic, social and political-which is notably lacking in the contemporary world, especially in places readily available to the educated non-specialist, such as the ‘quality’ weekend newspapers, and especially, perhaps, in relation to the visual arts. The pieces collected in this volume are not presented as amounting to an overall account or theory of our cultural condition.

What If This Is Heaven?: How Our Cultural Myths Prevent Us from Experiencing Heaven on Earth by Anita Moorjani
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 238 MB
Overview: If life is about the journey and not the destination, could it be that this is heaven – this physical life we are living here on earth? What we experience in our daily lives often feels like anything but heaven. But what if we understood how powerful we are – that we are powerful enough to mold both our internal and our external realities?
Anita Moorjani, the New York Times best-selling author of Dying to Be Me, is convinced we can do exactly that. The process, she explains, requires dismantling many cultural myths mistaken for indisputable truths. Beliefs such as "we get what we deserve", "loving ourselves is selfish", and "coincidences are just that – coincidences" are ingrained within us from birth, pervasive and influential, leading to generations of misguidance.
Following her near-death experience, Moorjani began to embody truths she learned in the other realm, discovering that letting go of these outmoded myths allowed her to experience heaven not as a physical place but as a state of mind right here and right now. In this examination of our common myths, she shares stories and examples from her own life, revealing the lies beneath the surface of what she was taught and absorbed. By freeing ourselves from these falsehoods, Moorjani asserts, we can leave fear, heartache, and self-imposed boundaries behind and instead live lives full of purpose and joy.
