The Course Of Love


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In Edinburgh, a couple, Rabih and Kirsten, fall in love. They get married, they have children -- but no relationship is as simple as "happily ever after." The Course of Love is a novel that explores what happens after the birth of love, what it takes to maintain love, and what happens to our original ideals under the pressures of an average existence. With philosophical insight and psychological acumen, Alain de Botton shows that our Romantic dreams may do us a grave disservice -- and explores what the alternatives might be. The conclusion, as the characters gradually discover, is that love is not "an enthusiasm," but rather a "skill" that must be slowly and often painfully learnt. This is a Romantic novel in the true sense, one interested in exploring how love can survive and thrive in the long term.

A Course Of Love Combined Volume Second Edition


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

A Course of Love is a book that changes lives because its purpose is to return you to your true Self. That one change will completely change your life and the world. Both individuals and humanity as a whole are now passing through a tremendous transformation. Are you ready to: KNOW YOURSELF in a new way, without judging yourself? ACCEPT ALL YOUR FEELINGS without rejecting them or projecting them onto others, thus remaining in harmony with who you are? LET GO of the perceptions and judgments of the mind, turning instead to the wisdom of your heart? This Second Edition contains the supplement, “Dialogue Unveiled.” ACOL is more than a book. It offers a new way of living and being. ACOL posits that all changes we would like to see happening in our lives, even in the world, stem from a single change: moving from seeing ourselves as separate individuals, to seeing the truth thatwe are an integral part of life, and of an eternal Consciousness that exists in Unity. ACOL is a call to move into love's embrace. As we remember our true identity, we let go of previous limiting beliefs that brought about experiences of struggle, loneliness, and pain. Our authentic Self leads us to live in certainty and with a clear sense of meaning and purpose. ACOL is often experienced as more of a transmission than a text. It keeps on revealing more, even to those who have read it numerous times before. Many readers find it to be truly alive. Though it stands by itself, ACOL is complementary to A Course in Miracles.Like ACIM, ACOL presents itself through the Voice of Jesus. It says that the two Courses work “hand-in-hand.” Many students of ACIM recognize the Voice. Despite its name, ACOL does not “teach love,” for “love cannot be taught but only recognized.” ACOL leads to the re-discovery our shared heartbeat, a union with One and a relationship with All. And despite its name as a “course,” it does not call for effort but for awareness. “While you continue to put effort into learning what cannot be learned, as you continue to see yourself as a student seeking to acquire what you do not yet have, you cannot recognize the unity in which you exist.” ACOL invites the reader to recover a memory that your heart has never lost. The goal is beyond learning. The goal is direct knowing through realizing one's true identity.

A Course Of Love


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

No matter how much is learned, if that learning remains in our heads, it is not enough. Unless learning touches our hearts, it's never going to bring us the wisdom we seek, the peace we desire, or the intimacy and connection for which we yearn. A new and more receptive way of knowing is needed, and is found in this course for the heart. "A Course of Love" was received by Mari Perron and given to be a "new" course in miracles. It is for the heart what "A Course in Miracles" is for the mind. For many, it is the next step in a journey already begun.

Essays In Love


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The bestselling author of The Architecture of Happiness and How Proust Can Change Your Life revisits his utterly charming debut book, Essays in Love. The narrator is smitten by Chloe on a Paris-to-London flight, and by the time they’ve reached the luggage carousel he knows he is in love. He loves her chestnut hair, watery green eyes, the gap that makes her teeth Kantian and not Platonic, and her views on Heidegger’s Being and Time — but he hates her taste in shoes. What makes this book extraordinary is the depth with which the emotions involved in the relationship are analysed. Love comes under the philosophical microscope. Plotting the course of their affair from the initial delirium of infatuation to the depths of suicidal despair, through a fit of anhedonia — defined in medical texts as a disease resulting from the terror brought on by the threat of utter happiness — and finally through the terrorist tactics employed when the beloved begins, inexplicably, to drift away, Essays in Love is filled with profound and witty observations on the pain and exhilaration of love. An entire chapter is devoted to the nuances and subtexts of an initial date, while another chapter mulls over the question of how and when to say “I love you.” With allusions to Aristotle, Sartre, Wittgenstein, and Groucho Marx, de Botton has plotted an imaginative and microscopically detailed romance.

The School Of Life


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

What does it mean to live wisely and well in the twenty-first century? And how should we go about doing it? These are the most important questions to ask ourselves and the ones we most often avoid dealing with. This insightful, witty and generous book reveals one simple answer to the question of a good life- emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence will not make you into a perfect person. It will not save you from moments of self-doubt, frustration or lost temper. Instead it will allow you to understand that these moments are completely normal, completely human, and that there is no such thing as perfect. There is only good enough - and that really is good enough.

In The Course Of A Dream Emanuel For Love


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The Age of Aquarius has dawned upon man. This book is a testament of the new age to herald the Arc of the Covenant -- The Dream. This is the Promised Land. It is the Law written in the heart of man. We were meant to awaken to a greater multi-dimensional awareness in which our spirit is free. It is a known fact that everyone dreams every night. How can one then awaken without a dream? The process of awakening begins with a dream. The revelation of our true potential has been staring us in the face night after night and we have dismissed it as idle ramblings of the mind. For me, the process began with a series of precognitive dreams culminating in a miracle wheat penny that would set me firmly on the path of illumination guided by my dreams; my inner voice. As external confirmation, the universe in synchronous fashion placed pennies on my path at precisely the right place and time to coincide with the magical "ah ha" experiences that come from working with dreams. Here is how it happened to me.
