Depression abzugeben

Bastei Entertainment


Seelische Erkrankungen verschleppt man oft und das kann schiefgehen. Uwe Hauck möchte über das Tabuthema Depressionen aufklären, den Betroffenen die Angst vor Psychiatrien nehmen und einen Einblick in das geben, was einem in der Klapse erwartet.

Offen, schonungslos und unterhaltsam lässt er uns an seinem Therapieverlauf teilnehmen und spart nicht mit Anekdoten über Beschäftigungsmaßnahmen, wie Korbflechten, Maltherapien oder Ausdruckstänzen. Denn die Klapse ist nichts anderes als ein Krankenhaus für gebrochene Seelen, und eigentlich sind in der Klapse eher normale Menschen, die mit dem Wahnsinn da draußen nicht mehr fertig werden, so der Autor.

Der ganz normale Wahnsinn

Aufbau Digital


Sind Sie glücklich mit Ihren Mitmenschen?

Jeder von uns ist ein bißchen wahnsinnig. Aber wir sind in guter Gesellschaft. Woody Allen ist eine fleischgewordene Neurose, Clint Eastwood spielt in seinen Filmen Charaktere mit schizoiden Zügen und Obelix ist nicht fähig, sein Leben ohne Asterix zu organisieren.

Wie weit es noch kommen kann, wenn es nicht schon so weit gekommen ist, zeigen die beiden Psychologen mit authentischen Berichten aus der Praxis und mit Beispielen aus Filmen, Romanen und Comics. Und am Ende verstehen wir besser, warum Obelix ohne Asterix ein Nichts ist, warum die Freundin immer gleich anfängt zu heulen und warum der Chef so ein Wichtigtuer ist.

»Wenn man dieses Buch gelesen hat – ich schwöre es Ihnen – ist man glücklich«, schwärmte Elke Heidenreich über François Lelords »Hectors Reise«. Wenn man »Der ganz normale Wahnsinn« gelesen hat, ist man auch glücklich mit seinen Mitmenschen, so nervtötend sie auch sein mögen. Wie man sich am besten mit schwierigen Menschen arrangiert und trotzdem die Fassung bewahrt, erklärt dieses überaus eloquente und amüsante Buch.

Die Launen der Seele

Aufbau Digital


Machen Sie sich das Leben leichter!

Wieso möchten wir an manchen Tagen die ganze Welt umarmen und uns an anderen in ein Mauseloch verkriechen? Wieso können wir einmal wegen derselben Kleinigkeit in die Luft gehen, die wir ein andermal mit Leichtigkeit parieren? Wer traut sich schon, seinem Chef zu sagen, er sei heute wirklich nicht in Stimmung, um diese oder jene Arbeit zu verrichten? Er wird wohl kaum auf Verständnis hoffen dürfen. Wir empfinden sie als Störenfriede, unsere Stimmungen, als Sand im Getriebe, der uns daran hindert, reibungslos zu funktionieren. Und dennoch sind wir ständig irgendwie gestimmt – sei es nun positiv oder negativ, beides zusammen oder eher neutral –, und das bestimmt unseren Tag ganz entscheidend mit. Anhand von klinischen Studien ebenso wie einfühlsam dargestellten Fallbeispielen, aber auch Anleihen aus Literatur und Philosophie analysiert und erklärt der Bestsellerautor das Phänomen unserer Gemütslagen. Darüber hinaus gibt er dem Leser detaillierte und anschauliche Empfehlungen an die Hand, die ihm helfen sollen, mit seinen Stimmungen umzugehen oder vielmehr, auf sie zu hören, anstatt gegen sie anzukämpfen. Denn so lassen sich scheinbare Schwächen in innere Stärke umwandeln.

The Prophecies of Nostradamus

BookRix


The renowned prophet Nostradamus (Michel de Nostradame) was born on December 14, 1503 in St. Remy, Provence, France. Nostradamus came from a long line of Jewish doctors and scholars. His family had converted from Judaism to Christianity in 1502, as a result of persecution on the ascension of Louis the XII. After a classical education he studied medicine, herbalism and astrology. During Nostradamus' lifetime the Black Death (today known as the bubonic plague) wiped out over a quarter of Europe. It is no wonder that a sense of apocalyptic terror fills Nostradamus' quatrains.

Nostradamus had the visions which he later recorded in verse while staring into water or flame late at night, sometimes aided by herbal stimulants, while sitting on a brass tripod. The resulting quatrains (four line verses) are oblique and elliptical, and use puns, anagrams and allegorical imagery. Most of the quatrains are open to multiple interpretations, and some make no sense whatsoever. Some of them are chilling, literal descriptions of events, giving specific or near-specific names, geographic locations, astrological configurations, and sometimes actual dates. It is this quality of both vagueness and specificity which allows each new generation to reinterpret Nostradamus.

Nostradamus is said to have predicted his own death. When his assistant wished him goodnight on July 1, 1566, Nostradamus reputedly pronounced, "You will not find me alive at sunrise." He was found dead on July 2, 1566.

The Virgin of the World

BookRix


THE mystic title of this celebrated Hermetic text the "Kosmic Virgin," is in itself a revelation of the wonderful identity subsisting between the ancient wisdom-religion of the old world, and the creed of catholic Christendom. Koré is the name by which, in the Eleusinian Mysteries, Persephone the Daughter, or Maiden, was saluted; and it is also--perhaps only by coincidence the Greek word for the pupil or apple of the eye. When, however, we find Isis, the Moon-goddess and Initiatrix, in her discourse with Horos, mystically identifying the eye with the soul, and comparing the tunics of the physical organ of vision with the envelopes of the soul; when, moreover, we reflect that precisely as the eye, by means of its pupil, is the enlightener and percipient of the body, so is the soul the illuminating and seeing principle of man, we can hardly regard this analogy of names as wholly unintentional and uninstructive. For Koré, or Persephone, the Maiden, is the personified soul, whose "apostasy," or "descent," from the heavenly sphere into earthly generation, is the theme of the following Hermetic parable. The Greek mysteries dealt

only with two subjects, the first being the drama of the "rape" and restoration of Persephone the second, that of the incarnation, martyrdom, and resuscitation of Dionysos-Zagreus. By Persephone was intended the Soul; and by Dionysos, the Spirit. Hermetic doctrine taught a fourfold nature both of the Kosmos and of Man; and of this fourfold nature two elements were deemed immortal and permanent, and two mortal and transient. The former were the spirit and the soul; the latter, the lower mind--or sense-body--and the physical organism. The spirit and soul, respectively male and female, remained throughout all the changes of metempsychosis the same, indissoluble and incorrupt, but the body and lower intellect were new in each rebirth, and therefore changeful and dissoluble. The spirit, or Dionysos, was regarded as of a specially divine genesis, being the Son of Zeus by the immaculate Maiden--Koré-Persephoneia, herself the daughter of Demeter, or the parent and super-mundane Intelligence, addressed in the Mysteries as the "Mother." But Koré, although thus of heavenly origin, participates more closely than her Son in an earthly and terrestrial nature. "Hence," says Proclos, "according to the theologians who delivered to us the most holy Mysteries, Persephone abides on high in those dwellings of the Mother which she prepared for her in inaccessible places, exempt from the sensible world. But she likewise dwells beneath with Pluto, administering terrestrial concerns, governing the recesses of the earth, and supplying life to the extremities of the Kosmos."

The Divine Pymander

BookRix


In this Book, though so very old, is contained more true knowledge of God and Nature, than in all the Books in the World besides, except only Sacred Writ; And they that shall judiciously read it, and rightly understand it, may well be excused from reading many Books; the Authors of which, pretend so much to the knowledge of the Creator, and Creation. If God ever appeared in any man, he appeared in him, as it appears by this Book. That a man who had not the benefit of his Ancestors’ knowledge, being as I said before, The first inventor of the Art of Communicating Knowledge to Posterity by writing, should be so high a Divine, and so deep a Philosopher, seems to be a thing more of God than of Man; and therefore it was the opinion of some That he came from Heaven, not born upon Earth [Goropius Becanus]. There is contained in this Book, that true Philosophy, without which, it is impossible ever to attain to the height, and exactness of Piety, and Religion. According to this Philosophy, I call him a Philosopher, that shall learn and study the things that are, and how they are ordered, and governed, and by whom, and for what cause, or to what end; and he that doth so, will acknowledge thanks to, and admire the Omnipotent Creator, Preserver, and Director of all these things. And he that shall be thus truly thankful, may truly be called Pious and Religious: and he that is Religious, shall more and more know where and what the Truth is: And learning that, he shall yet be more and more Religious.

The glory and splendour of Philosophy, is an endeavoring to understand the chief Good, as the Fountain of all Good: Now how can we come near to, or find out the Fountain, but by making use of the Streams as a conduct to it? The operations of Nature, are Streams running from the Fountain of Good, which is God. I am not of the ignorant, and foolish opinion of those that say, The greatest Philosophers are the greatest Atheists: as if to know the works of God, and to understand his goings forth in the Way of Nature, must necessitate a man to deny God. The Scripture disapproves of this as a sottish tenet, and experience contradicts it: For behold! Here is the greatest Philosopher, and therefore the greatest Divine.

Studies in Occultism

BookRix


Occultism is not magic. It is comparatively easy to learn the trick of spells and the methods of using the subtler, but still material, forces of physical nature; the powers of the animal soul in man are soon awakened; the forces which his love, his hate, his passion, can call into operation, are readily developed. But this is Black Magic — Sorcery. For it is the motive, and the motive alone, which makes any exercise of power become black, malignant, or white, beneficent Magic. It is impossible to employ spiritual forces if there is the slightest tinge of selfishness remaining in the operator. For, unless the intention is entirely unalloyed, the spiritual will transform itself into the psychic, act on the astral plane, and dire results may be produced by it. The powers and forces of animal nature can equally be used by the selfish and revengeful, as by the unselfish and the all-forgiving; the powers and forces of spirit lend themselves only to the perfectly pure in heart — and this is DIVINE MAGIC.

The Astral Plane

BookRix


IN the extensive literature of Theosophy this little work stands out for certain specially marked characteristics. It records an attempt to describe the Invisible World in the same manner that a botanist would describe some new territory on this globe not explored by any previous botanist.

Most works dealing with Mysticism and Occultism are characterised by the lack of a scientific presentation, such as is exacted in every department of science. They give us far more the significance of things, rather than descriptions of the things themselves. In this little book the author approaches the Invisible World from the modern standpoint of science.

The first point which it is necessary to make clear in describing this astral plane is its absolute reality. In using that word I am not speaking from that metaphysical standpoint from which all but the One Unmanifested is unreal because impermanent; I am using the word in its plain, every-day sense, and I mean by it that the objects and inhabitants of the astral plane are real in exactly the same way as our own bodies, our furniture, our houses or monuments are real – as real as Charing Cross, to quote an expressive remark from one of the earliest Theosophical works. They will no more endure for ever than will objects on the physical plane, but they are nevertheless realities from our point of view while they last – realities which we cannot afford to ignore merely because the majority of mankind is as yet unconscious, or but vaguely conscious, of their existence.
