This book is about the little-known fact that there are four different kinds of meditation—Witness Meditation, Transformative Meditation, Discursive Meditation, and Transcendental Meditation. More often, each kind of meditation is promoted and practiced apart from the others. But combined as a process, they lead to cosmic consciousness and more loving attitude toward one’s self and planet Earth. Instead of the violence of interpersonal competition and environmental exploitation so prevalent today, the ideals of peace, justice, and harmony can become the new reality given a more integrated approach to life’s material, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual realms of experience. But in spite of the enormous advances in technology, we are still caught up in unwinnable wars that cost lives and resources of all the participants; we are still confronted by the injustices of social and economic controls that have most recently resulted in meltdowns; and we are still faced with that seemingly unsolvable environmental problems that are plaguing our planet today . Seemingly, the leadership of our global community is failing us. So it’s up to us as individuals. Meditation and the Evolution of Cosmic Consciousness is not a how-to book, however. It is an attempt to identify the process in a way that can be imitated. To do so, Don Ayre has reviewed his private practice as a family and child therapist and the writings of a number of historical figures that he recognizes as “great minds” for evidences of cosmic consciousness that can be used to build a living model. Ayre invites his readers to examine their uses of meditation and the writings of their favorite authors to contribute their thoughts and ideas that will assist with the evolution of cosmic consciousness.

Suppose you could ask God any question and get an answer. What would it be? Young people all over the world have been asking those questions. So Neale Donald Walsch, author of the internationally bestselling Conversations with God series had another conversation. Conversations with God for Teens is a simple, clear, straight-to-the-point dialogue that answers teens questions about God, money, sex, love, and more. Conversations with God for Teens reads like a rap session at a church youth group, where teenagers discuss everything they ever wanted to know about life but were too afraid to ask God. Walsch acts as the verbal conduit, showing teenagers how easy it is to converse with the divine. When Claudia, age 16, from Perth, Australia, asks, "Why can't I just have sex with everybody? What's the big deal?", the answer God offers her is: "Nothing you do will ever be okay with everybody. 'Everybody' is a large word. The real question is can you have sex and have it be okay with you?" There's no doubt that the casual question-and-answer format will help make God feel welcoming and accessible to teens. Conversations with God for Teens is the perfect gift purchase for parents, grandparents, and anyone else who wants to provide accessible spiritual content for the teen(s) in their lives.

COSMIC ENCOUNTER brings you the experience of viewing the development of human spirituality through the eternal eyes of the universe. Its insight reveals a deeper understanding of where we have been and what we have become. These conversations with Orion also uncover an intriguing glance into the workings of the universe, and a comforting guide for the future. “ Where is home? Home is where you finally know who you are and you come to be at peace with all that you are and all you have ever been.” Spirituality is about the heart, not where we live, or how we grew up. We can all find a connection that feeds the soul, gives us insight and comfort, and ultimately brings us home. Regardless of how we get there, spirituality is how we find out about ourselves. It is truly the inner spirit, the core of our soul that we ultimately yearn to know. Finding and connecting can happen in many ways. “There is a conscious effort and determination by growing numbers of people to move dark energy away from Earth and bring in the energies of spiritual light. We are here to support you, but it is you on the Earth who will determine the future.” The search for spirituality is at the core of life for all humans. It determines the direction of our life, depending on how we respond to that inner call. To listen and be open to spirit takes us in one direction. To shut off that voice and ignore our need for spirituality, or to distort its purpose, takes us on a very different path.
