We all make decisions constantly--some with careful reflection, some without much thought. But what if we understood these decisions, minor as well as major, as matters of faithful Christian living? In this helpful and encouraging book, Elizabeth Liebert introduces the practice of discernment and guides readers through the process of faithful decision making. Following the way of discernment means becoming increasingly able to notice where God is at work in the world and in one's own life--and becoming increasingly generous with one's own life in response. After briefly exploring the Christian tradition of discernment, Liebert then turns to practical steps and exercises that will help readers as they seek God's call in the midst of their decisions, allowing readers to internalize some of these practices and incorporate them into their daily lives.

The Honeymoon Effect: A state of bliss, passion, energy, and health resulting from a huge love. Your life is so beautiful that you can’t wait to get up to start a new day and you thank the Universe that you are alive. Think back on the most spectacular love affair of your life—the Big One that toppled you head over heels. For most, it was a time of heartfelt bliss, robust health, and abundant energy. Life was so beautiful that you couldn’t wait to bound out of bed in the morning to experience more Heaven on Earth. It was the Honeymoon Effect that was to last forever. Unfortunately for most, the Honeymoon Effect is frequently short-lived. Imagine what your planetary experience would be like if you could maintain the Honeymoon Effect throughout your whole life. Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., bestselling author of The Biology of Belief, describes how the Honeymoon Effect was not a chance event or a coincidence, but a personal creation. This book reveals how we manifest the Honeymoon Effect and the reasons why we lose it. This knowledge empowers readers to create the honeymoon experience again, this time in a way that ensures a happily-ever-after relationship that even a Hollywood producer would love. With authority, eloquence, and an easy-to-read style, Lipton covers the influence of quantum physics (good vibrations), biochemistry (love potions), and psychology (the conscious and subconscious minds) in creating and sustaining juicy loving relationships. He also asserts that if we use the 50 trillion cells that live harmoniously in every healthy human body as a model, we can create not just honeymoon relationships for couples but also a "super organism" called humanity that can heal our planet.

Book Three of our Creation Story provides solutions. Our hope for the future resides in the unexpected, in the irrational, in the intuitive. Mostly, our hope comes from faith in the human capacity to find a way through, to be brilliant when circumstances require brilliance. In our story the Universal Organizing Principle is the absolute nature of reality arising as pure consciousness, intelligence, function, and beauty, which appears in objective form as all manifest things, including whales, birdsongs, human children, stars, bees and primrose flowers. We are standing on a precipice that will destroy us unless we act brilliantly, now! The Ecological Epoch shows us how to do so-that is, how to recreate a healthy relationship with the Earth and with all Nature's creatures. Spirit, Eros and Climate Chaos have left us facing two possible outcomes to our current destructive behavior. The first is a proactive, graceful transition into an Earth-honoring sustainable way of life; the second, economic collapse from weather anomalies, agricultural disruption, rising seas, scarcity of clean water, and radioactive toxicity-all creating innumerable environmental refugees, social chaos and human demise. No matter which scenario eventual holds sway, the end result will be a worldwide culture that has dramatically changed its appreciation for the Earth's living systems and biological functioning; we will have completed the recently begun journey into the Ecological Epoch-changing our relationship with Nature from ignorance to a reorientation based on respect and reverence. Will the transition needed to integrate this new consciousness into our collective behavior be graceful or traumatic? That is the issue of our generation's short existence here on Earth. "A bold and brilliant analysis of the human story set against the predicament of climate change. Beath strikes at the heart (exposes the pain) of our cultural paralysis, explores the root causes and skillfully describes the way to a responsible and enlightened future. I can genuinely say how very good it is, and how particularly poignant it was to read it after the Climate March in NYC-in the context of the ever-present question of what will become of us, what should we do?" -Linda Solomon Wood, Editor-in-Chief, The National Observer "Beath has written a thoughtful, passionate history of The Planet, The Human Species, and, basically, The Future, where we are now, and where may be headed. It's both an easy-going and a stunning read, one of these profound books that seemingly come out of nowhere. One of the best reads in a long time, and couldn't be more timely." -Steve Chapple, UCSD, author "Andrew Beath is a true visionary of our time. This third book in the trilogy calls us to evolve into a new epoch, one that leads with balance, integration, and connectivity. Beath masterfully links scientifi c, historical, spiritual, and mythological information. The New Creation Story is a sacred adventure that honors the Earth and all of its creation." -Rachel Lang, radio program host for "Blissen Up!"
