Starman
DVD ~ Jeff Bridges
Wird angeboten von Flohpreis
Preis: EUR 19,97

5.0 von 5 Sternen beautiful heartwarming story, 29. November 2009
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Starman (DVD)
I'm a Jeff Bridges fan, but far from prejudiced (of course). This is a beautiful heartwarming story about an alien who crashed down on earth, cloned himself into the body a widowed lady's deceased husband. He has to travel within a few days across the country, to a meeting point to be picked up by his people. The widowed lady and he travel to a meeting point, but are being haunted down by the FBI on their travels.
A great science fiction story about love, with the right amount of suspense added, and after so many years, it's still one of the best movies out there.

we should all be like HORTON! We'll end up living in a better and beautiful world. Thanks Dr. Seuss, wherever you are now in the Universe. In spite of my age (almost 60....) I still read and love ALL your stories.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Vipassana meditation? GO FOR IT, 23. April 2009
Incredibly Helpful book to understand and practise Vipassana meditation. I meditated for quite some time (helpful for the pain control of rheumatism), before I encountered Vipassana meditation in 2007, as taught by GOENKA. This is probably THE best meditation method, period. A couple of weeks afterwards, I did my 1st 10 day and I do one each year now. I encourage everyone to do at least ONE in this lifetime (hah!). (just find the time... IT'S TOTALLY FREE, visit dhamma.org). This 10 day retreat is absolutely the greatest gift to self. Can't think of a better way to go "IN", and just observe and unserstand what drives us... (mostly NUTS!) and to bring permanent changes to our life. Understanding our cravings/desires and our rejections. How we are stuck in thoughts about the past or the future, and creating our own hell by doing that. Constantly escaping what is here and now in the present moment. Uh... did someone say easy? No it isn't. This is certainly NOT A QUICK FIX. Indeed: a long life effort, and often still a struggle, to get FREE from our self-built ego-mind prison... The beauty of Vipassana is that we gain insight in ourselves, and to realize that we are our own GURU, our own master. Mindfulness is quite powerful. Also HIGHLY reccommended, 3 documentaries of prisoners who also did a 10 day Vipassana silence retreat and the impact it had on them. These dvd's should NOT be missed: "Doing Time, doing Vipassana" (INDIA). "Changing from the inside" (SEATTLE) and "The Dhamma Brothers" (ALABAMA). The book "letters from the Dhamma Brothers" is also a must read. There is certainly a life BEFORE and AFTER a 10 day VIPASSANA silence retreat... for everybody, no-one will ever be the same. I wish I could say I was already enlightened... far from it... I still often do my volcano impersonation, and burn myself and others by doing that. But... nowadays, I DO catch myself in the act... and thankfully observe and feel what happens in my body, so I can just return to my breath, relax, smile and "start again"... As Grady Bankhead one of the Dhamma Brothers said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey: "Everything will be okay, in a minute...". And he's so right! For those we still cannot or won't find the time to go to a 10 day retreat, "start-off" with this book. After reading it, you WILL find yourself on your way to a Vipassana center, I'm sure of that. To close off with Goenka: "May all beings be happy".

5.0 von 5 Sternen POWERFUL little book, with a great impact, 23. April 2009
Don't be fooled by the size of this quite tiny little book, because it is incredibly POWERFUL. After I bought my copy, I bought 3 more, to give away. Very very truthful, and if we practise forgiveness, we will be freeing not only ourselves, but others too.

Razor-Wire Dharma: A Buddhist Life in Prison
Razor-Wire Dharma: A Buddhist Life in Prison
von Calvin Malone
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 17,01

5.0 von 5 Sternen absolutely worthwhile, 23. April 2009
This book should be read by everyone. Being imprisoned and being a buddhist can make a big difference not only for the one practitioner but for many others as well. No one will stay untouched. The stone in the pond and the ripple-effect It's encouraging to realize everyone can change. The stories are each one of them jewels, sometimes kinda rough... Meditation is one of the best ways to experience who (or maybe it is "what") we are, so we can escape the idea of separateness, and treat everyone, including ourself with compassion and kindness, day by day. No, not easy, not even for the "free" people of the world. Unforgettable stories, that are helpful for me to continue practising meditation and keep my heart open for everyone.

5.0 von 5 Sternen wonderful practice, 9. Juni 2008
Not "just a good read", but it's essential to follow these steps, in order to be able to live our life in peace and happiness, under all circumstances.
I still don't find it easy, but I believe/know (!) it is possible to be happy in every moment. As Thich says: Breathe in (I have arrived), Breathe out (I am home).
I also reccommend the 6cd set "The Present Moment (A Retreat on the Practice of Mindfulness)". Teachings that bring peace to ourself and therefore also to the world. Read and enjoy and integrate these teachings into our daily lives.
