Believe it or not there is now a translation of the Bible using emojis. I understand outreach but at some point you really need to ask yourself, “am I helping people or am I promoting myself?” Is it cute or is it divisive? Is it respectful?
Will we see the Koran Emoji next?

Some people believe that the Bible is a book filled with hate while others believe that it is a book about love. Some people believe that it is a book of fables and fantasy while others believe it to be inspirational and Historical. I believe that, like everything in life, you get out of it what you put into it.
I’ve read it. It is beautiful…
In this slender volume, Rumi explores the joy of friendship and the agony of loss. These poetic meditations on the most profound of human relationships are like crystals: they sparkle with the many hues of the rainbow and contain worlds within, capturing us with their mystery.
Here are poems that cause us to reflect on our own relationships, to experience again the intensity of friendship, the ache of loss, and the profundity of immersion.
This is a book for poetry lovers, Rumi fans, and all gift-giving occasions; a book to treasure and to share.

I failed to find myself
I looked inside and discovered
I only knew my name.
When I stepped outside
I found my real Self.
I am not this hair,
I am not this skin,
I am the soul that lives within.
Uh oh, I may need one (or more) of these… http://amzn.to/1OChaLi

Here in one slender volume is a basic introduction to Chinese alchemy—a tradition that dates back 5,000 years.
Chinese alchemy, largely associated with Taoism, has a recorded history of more than 2,000 years, but traditionally it goes back even further to nearly 3000 BC and the time of the Yellow Emperor. While Western alchemy was concerned with the search for spiritual and material gold, classic Taoist alchemy was a mystical quest for immortality with its aim being union with the Absolute.
Jean Cooper describes the history and development of Taoist alchemy, compares it to similar traditions in India and Turkistan, and gives it context by contrasting it with the rationale of the Western hermetic tradition. As she writes in her concluding chapter: The whole work of alchemy is summed up in the phrase “To make of the body a spirit and of the spirit a body”. . . . The goal of the Taoist alchemist-mystic was transformation, or perhaps more correctly, transfiguration, of the whole body until it ceases to “be” and is absorbed into and becomes the Tao.
This is an essential guide for anyone interested in Chinese legend and lore, Chinese magic and medicine, and Taoism.
