Adakah hatimu gelisah? Adakah hatimu gundah-gulana? Adakah hatimu pedih, sedih dan sempit dek kerana dosa dan pelbagai masalah yang menimpa? Mungkinkah HATIMU sudah lama tidak di BASAHI dengan iman? Bagaimana pula dengan air mata mu? Sudah berapa lama ia kekeringan? Sudah berapa lama ia tidak berlinangan kerana penyesalan? Dan sudah berapa lama pipimu tidak di BASAHI air mata keinsafan? " Hati yang di basahi iman, pipinya akan mudah di basahi air mata kecintaan..."
"Un biglietto d'entrata nella memoria costa solo 13 dollari. Basta trovarsi nei pressi della cittadina di Bethel, un'ora di macchina a nord di New York, e sarete attirati da cartelli che indicano una direzione e un nome che dopo quarant'anni manda ancora inaspettate scariche elettriche: Woodstock. Anzi per l'esattezza: Woodstock Museum. Una cosa del genere poteva accadere solo in America. A chi altri poteva venire in mente di costruire un museo dedicato a un concerto? Un concerto ...
Un oggetto immateriale, intangibile, esistito solo nel flusso spazio-temporale di tre giorni.
Come è possibile? E, soprattutto, cosa è stato davvero Woodstock? Di sicuro molto di più che un semplice festival di musica. Diciamo una singolarità della storia, un monumento costruito in tempo reale a una rivoluzione che si stava sbriciolando nello spazio di un sogno, e quindi necessariamente un'opera immateriale, di cui non sarebbe rimasta nessuna traccia fisica, un'idea, un concetto. È stata una singolarità? Ovvero un evento estremo, nel quale le normali leggi dello spazio-tempo subiscono alterazioni unìche? O più semplicemente il climax, l'inevitabile orgasmo di un'eccitazione generazionale durata qualche anno?"
More than 11,000 babies are born every day in the United States. Their parents prepare the room, buy all the equipment and diapers, go to birthing classes, find a pediatrician and anxiously await their arrival. Rarely do these parents have any preparation for the sleep deprivation before them. Kim West, author of "Good Night, Sleep Tight" and nationally known as "The SleepLady (tm)" has written 52 Sleep Secrets for Babies" to help new parents learn what they need to do to get their babies - and themselves - the sleep they need. The Sleep Lady(R)approach is founded on my general beliefs as a family therapist: I'm a proponent of parents developing and maintaining a secure attachment with their child while creating a family life where everyone is happy, healthy and well-rested. My sleep approach builds on step-by-step changes in bedtime, napping and overnight routines so that a child can develop sleep independence and sleep more soundly and longer while feeling confident that Mom and Dad will be nearby and responsive. It's a gentler alternative for families who can't stomach the idea of letting their babies cry it out; for families who have tried Ferber without success; and for families who had success earlier on with crying it out but find that it isn't working now. I have also worked with families who believe in co-sleeping but whose babies don't really sleep all that well, even nestled snugly with Mom and Dad. And I've guided many families who did co-sleep for a few months or a few years but now want the family bed to revert to a marital one. 52 Sleep Secrets for Babies summarizes much of what I have learned from working with hundreds of families and that I now teach to the new parents I see in my practice and through my website. So many have asked me for a quick and easy to follow guide to helping their babies learn to sleep and to help them prevent problems down the road, I have put together this little book that you can carry with you anywhere and refer to before and after sleep problems arise.
The world's foremost expert on Maya culture looks at 2012 hysteria and explains the truth about what the Maya meant and what we want to believe. Apocalypse 2012: An Investigation into Civilizations End. The World Cataclysm in 2012. 2012: The return of Quetzalcoatl. According to many of these alarmingly titled books, the ancient Maya not only had a keen insight into the mystical workings of our planet and the cosmos, but they were also able to predict that the world will end in the year 2012. David Stuart, the foremost scholar of the Maya and recipient of numerous awards for his work, takes a hard look at the frenzy over 2012 and offers a fascination (and accurate) trip through Mayan culture and belief. Stuart shows how the idea that the "end of the Mayan calendar," which supposedly heralds the end of our own existence, says far more about our culture than about the ancient Maya.
The Order of Days explores how the real intellectual achievement of ancient Maya timekeeping and worldview is far more impressive and remarkable than any of the popular, and often outrageous, claims about this advanced civilization. As someone who has studied the Maya for nearly all of his life and who specializes in reading their ancient texts, Stuart sees the 2012 hubbub as the most recent in a long chain of related ideas about Mesoamericans, the Maya in particular, that depicts them as somehow oddball, not "of this world," or as having some strong mystical link to other realms. Because the year 2012 has no prominent role in anything the ancient Maya ever actually wrote, Stuart takes a wider look at the Maya concepts of time and their underlying philosophy as we can best understand them. The ancient Maya, Stuart contends, were worthy of study and admiration not because they were strange but because they were altogether human, and they developed a compelling vision of time unlike any other civilization before or since.
