The Diamond Cutter: The Buddha on
Managing Your Business and Your Life - Geshe Michael Roach
- With a unique combination of ancient and contemporary wisdom from
the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, The Diamond Cutter presents readers with
empowering strategies for success in their work and personal lives.
Geshe Michael Roach, one of the great teachers today of Tibetan Buddhism, has richly woven The Diamond Cutter in three layers. The first is a translation of selections from the Diamond Sutra itself, an ancient text comprised of conversations between the Buddha and his close disciple Subhuti. Considered a central work by Buddhists throughout the world, the Diamond Sutra has been the focus of much interpretation over the centuries. In the second layer, Geshe Michael quotes from some of the best commentaries of the Tibetan tradition. In the main text, the third layer, he uses both sutra and commentary as a jumping-off point for presenting his own teaching.
Geshe Michael gives fresh insight into ancient wisdom by using examples from his own experience as one of the founders of the Andin International Diamond Corporation, which was started with capital of fifty thousand dollars and which today has annual sales in excess of one hundred million dollars. Much of the success of Andin has come from applying the business strategies presented in The Diamond Cutter. Geshe Michael's easy style and spiritual understanding make this work of timeless wisdom an invaluable source for those already familiar with, and those unfamiliar with, Tibetan Buddhism.

OURSELVES: Coordinating Body, Mind and Spirit - Aaron
Hoopes - Can we achieve perfection? While true perfection is
fleeting, we often achieve a moment of perfection: a state of mind that is
just right, a time when we are fully attuned to the needs of our body,
mind and spirit. It is the potential for achieving this type of
integration that Perfecting Ourselves: Coordinating Body, Mind and Spirit
seeks to tap into.
Author Aaron Hoopes explores the basic threads of the self—body, mind and spirit and demonstrates simple methods of integrating the three through breathing exercises, meditation, focused quietism and conscious living. He considers the body and how we can become more fully aware of it by examining detrimental behaviors, exploring the effect they have and suggesting ways to counter them. In particular, he shows how deep breathing exercises and conscious awareness of the breath constitute a major pathway to physical health and well-being. He then looks the mind and how we can gain more control over our thoughts and feelings. In particular, he focuses on “Quietism” an approach that includes exercises for calming the mind and gaining clarity of thought. Finally, he discusses the spirit, which manifests itself when we have integrated a healthy, connected body with a calm, clear mind.
When integration occurs, every moment of life becomes “perfect.” We can live in balance with our self and the world around us. Through breathing and quietism, the quality of life improves. We get sick less often and recover faster. Things that bothered us before become insignificant. Feelings of well-being invade us, and we feel ready to tackle any task or obstacle in our path. Follow along as Aaron leads you through simple exercises that will help you:
*Develop healthy habits one step at a time
*Holistically heal and strengthen your body
*Reduce tension and stress through mindful breathing
*Increase your connection between mind and body
*Get in touch with your “Universal Mind”
*Discover the joys of quietism
*Achieve internal balance

POWER OF NOW - Eckhart
Tolle - Eckhart Tolle is emerging as one of today's most inspiring
teachers. In The Power of Now, a #1 national bestseller, the author
describes his transition from despair to self-realization soon after his
29th birthday. Tolle took another ten years to understand this
transformation, during which time he evolved a philosophy that has
parallels in Buddhism, relaxation techniques, and meditation theory but is
also eminently practical. In The Power of Now he shows readers how to
recognize themselves as the creators of their own pain, and how to have a
pain-free existence by living fully in the present. Accessing the deepest
self, the true self, can be learned, he says, by freeing ourselves from
the conflicting, unreasonable demands of the mind and living present,
fully, and intensely, in the Now.
"The author shares ideas about personal integration with uncommon eloquence and a deep understanding of the human condition. Our true identity is in our moment-to-moment experiences rather than in our past or future. Concern about anything but the present is an unhealthy identification with the mind that can only cause pain and an illusion of control. Being totally aware of ourselves in each moment actually requires little effort or direction if we stop our thoughts long enough to find the pure consciousness that exists in the gaps between them. These ideas will be radical for most Westerners, but they are so smoothly elucidated that almost all seekers of inner truth will find something of value in the program."

WISDOM OF FLORENCE SCOVEL SHINN
Florence Schovel Shinn - Ms. Scovel's works as captured in this comprehensive volume is an invaluable tool for the individual embarking on the journey to understanding faith, the power of the mind and the spoken word. Personally, I have thus far read it through, cover to cover, twice, and have found new things on which to meditate each time. It also gives a very non-judgemental interpretation of God's word and how to use it to live, peacefully, harmoniously, abundantly and joyfully. I not only recommend it, I have given it as gifts to my friends. The power of life and death rests in the tongue. We all hold the key to our happiness in our words. This realization of Truth has set me free. This book has been the catalysts for that freedom.
OF LISTENING, Mindful Communication in the Age of Distraction -
Z. Shafir, M.A. CCC - In this age of distraction, barriers to
listening are everywhere: poor attention spans, multitasking, obsession
with time/speed, self-consciousness, and the constant noise - radio,
phone, TV, traffic - all of which interferes with our ability to get
"the whole message." Rebecca Shafir assures us we can make
powerful connections and transform our lives simply by remembering how to
listen. Her book is based on the Zen concept of mindfulness, which teaches
how to filter out distractions and be totally in the present. In business,
for instance, mindful listening helps us create allies instead of target
sales, achieving a win/win outcome.
This fun, practical guide is full of simple strategies we can use immediately to enjoy our personal and professional lives, including how to: *Enhance relationships *Intensify concentration *Strenghten negotiating skills *Stay focused under stress *Reduce memory loss *Use time more efficiently *Increase attention span *Create loyal customers *Get the message others miss and get them to hear YOU! Step-by-step exercises teach new behavior and encourage us to try it out in the world!
Rebecca Shafir is chief of speech pathology at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Massachusetts. A twenty-year student of Zen, she leads listening workshops in New England and has coached media personalities and political candidates since 1980.
