Winnie-the-Pooh has a certain Way about him, a way of doing things that has made him the world's most beloved bear. In The Tao of Pooh, Benjamin Hoff shows that Pooh's Way is amazingly consistent with the principles of living envisioned by the Chinese founders of Taoism. The author's explanation of Taoism through Pooh, and Pooh through Taoism, shows that this is not simply an ancient and remote philosophy but something you can use, here and now.And what is Taoism? It's really very simple. It calls for living without preconceived ideas about how life should be lived-but it's not a preconception of how life-it's.... Well, you'd do better to listen to this book, and listen to Pooh, if you really want to find out.

Get on the express for Feng Shui. Know how to apply the ancient art of Feng Shui to get what you want and attract luck, love, and money

Do you want to:

Attract more money into your life or get out of financial debt? Find that one perfect soulmate or add more romance to your love life? Receive an unexpected promotion at work or land that dream job? Get into that dream school or program you've been wishing for? Improve the family atmosphere at home or relationship with friends? Obtain more happiness or find fulfillment within your life?

Well, now you can, simply by arranging or adding a few pieces of furniture at home or at the office.

Huh, what such nonsense is this? Sounds far-fetched doesn't it? Don't be hasty to jump to ignorant bliss just yet!

You know how people say that your environment can influence a person? Well, the Chinese believes there is much more to it and that it affects your success, happiness, and health as well.

There are energies around us that govern events within our lives favorably or unfavorably; however, you can enhance the positive energy and repeal the negative one, thus turning bad fortune into good fortune. This is what the Chinese considers to be the work of Feng Shui, which has been around for thousands of years.

What is Feng Shui? If this is the first time you've heard of this word, Feng Shui is basically a system of altering the environment harmoniously to one's being for the maximum flow of life energy - what the Chinese called "chi". However, this is not only a Chinese practice, but other cultures also believe in such art of geomancy with placing things in their most auspicious ways for the best outcome on one's life.

Can religious beliefs survive in the scientific age? Are they resoundingly outdated? Or, is there something in them of great importance, even if the way they are expressed will have to change given new scientific context? These questions are among those at the core of the science-religion dialogue.

In The Big Questions in Science and Religion, Keith Ward, an Anglican priest who was once an atheist, offers compelling insights into the often contentious relationship between diverse religious views and new scientific knowledge. He identifies 10 basic questions about the nature of the universe and human life. Among these are:

Does the universe have a goal or purpose?Do the laws of nature exclude miracles?Can science provide an wholly naturalistic explanation for moral and religious beliefs?Has science made belief in God obsolete? Are there any good science-based arguments for God?

With his expertise in the study of world religions, Ward considers concepts from Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, and Christianity, while featuring the speculations of cosmologists, physicians, mathematicians, and philosophers. In addition, Ward examines the implications of ancient laws and modern theories and evaluates the role of religious experience as evidence of a nonphysical reality.

Writing with enthusiasm, passion, and clarity, Keith Ward conveys the depth, difficulty, intellectual excitement, and importance of the greatest intellectual and existential questions of the modern scientific age.
