"You know, this friend called mind,
it's in a role.
It was given to us
to create identification out of nothing.
It's such an ancient divine servant.
The Self took the form of thought
to help itself play the game.
So could you bow down to thought
as an ancient retainer?
It's the Self in disguise."
Looking at Mindfulness: Twenty-five Paintings to Change the Way You Live
By Christophe Andre
Looking at Mindfulness collects classic and esoteric paintings, from Rembrandt to Hopper to Magritte, and offers a lucid commentary on the inner workings of each. André describes the dynamic on the canvas, and turns to the viewer's own reactions, exploring the connection between what we see and what we feel. Moving beyond the art on the page, André teaches us what it means to consider our surroundings, our daily interactions and obligations, and their effect on our inner well-being.

The Feminine face of Awakening
by Rita Marie Robinson
Read the Chapter featuring Pamela.
Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Wisdom is a collection of intimate, heartfelt conversations with women spiritual teachers who live and look like ordinary people. What makes them extraordinary is that each woman has awakened to her true nature. This doesn't look like the old stereotype of transcendence, detachment, and bliss. Quite the contrary. This is the feminine half of the spiritual journey - bringing it down to earth and embracing all of what it means to be human.
These real life stories show by practical example what it means to be fully awake and fully engaged, to meet the world without resistance - even and especially when it's not easy - whether it's death, divorce or illness. The invitation is explicit . . . "if these ordinary women can be fully awake and fully human, why not me, why not you? And why not now?"
Women featured include Annette Knopp, Catherine Ingram, Dorothy Hunt, Francie Halderman, Gangaji, Neelam . . . and Pamela.
260 pages: £11.99, $16.47 Can be ordered from Amazon.
