El poder del mito book cover
El poder del mito
Joseph Campbell - 1988-06-01
Calificación de Goodreads
Contienen todas las culturas un fundamento único y universal? ¿Qué tienen en común el Quijote, John Lennon, el Buda, Ulises, el Papa, el rey Arturo y la Guerra de las Galaxias de George Lucas? «Sobreponiéndose a las más oscuras pasiones, el héroe simboliza nuestra habilidad para controlar al animal irracional que habita en nosotros.» Así, Joseph Campbell —autor de El héroe de las mil caras y Las máscaras de Dios— considera el mito como instrumento fundamental para interpretar la realidad, enriquecer la experiencia vital y comprender los oscuros y atemorizantes abismos de la existencia, como semilla de todas las religiones que, en su diversidad, expresan distintas metáforas de un mismo prurito de explicar lo inexplicable. Entender el pasado y esclarecer el presente por medio de la mitología, y más concretamente de su expresión formal, los ritos, fue el desafío que Campbell persiguió con verdadera pasión durante toda su vida. Este diálogo con el periodista Bill Moyers, que tuvo lugar un par de años antes de su muerte, sintetiza los principales postulados de su pensamiento y de su obra.

El poder del ahora
A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
Eckhart Tolle - 2004-08-19 (publicado por primera vez en 1997)
Calificación de Goodreads
The Power of Now is a guide to spiritual awakening from a man who is emerging as one of this generation's clearest, most inspiring teachers on the subject. Eckhart Tolle is not aligned with any particular religion but does what all the great masters have done: shows that the way, the truth, and the light already exist within each human being. There is no need to look elsewhere. At the heart of this book is Tolle's own story of early despair that culminated in a life-transforming experience of enlightenment at the age of twenty-nine. He emerged to share insights on the perils of the mind, the power of the present, and the accessibility of one's true nature. According to Tolle, "To regain awareness of Being and to abide in that state of 'feeling-realization' is enlightenment."
