The acclaimed #1 New York Times bestselling author presents a spellbinding tale of a mother's tragic loss and one man's last chance at gaining salvation. Can we save ourselves, or do we rely on others to do it? Is what we believe always the truth? One moment June Nealon was happily looking forward to years full of laughter and adventure with her family, and the next, she was staring into a future that was as empty as her heart. Now her life is a waiting game. Waiting for time to heal her wounds, waiting for justice. In short, waiting for a miracle to happen. For Shay Bourne, life holds no more surprises. The world has given him nothing, and he has nothing to offer the world. In a heartbeat, though, something happens that changes everything for him. Now, he has one last chance for salvation, and it lies with June's eleven-year-old daughter, Claire. But between Shay and Claire stretches an ocean of bitter regrets, past crimes, and the rage of a mother who has lost her child. Would you give up your vengeance against someone you hate if it meant saving someone you love? Would you want your dreams to come true if it meant granting your enemy's dying wish? Once again, Jodi Picoult mesmerizes and enthralls readers with this story of redemption, justice, and love.

During his lifetime, His Eminence Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche created vast benefit throughout the world. He demonstrated the unceasing activity of a bodhisattva—one who is committed to alleviating the suffering of others while simultaneously establishing their enduring well-being. That he taught extensively concerning how we could do the same, bringing his depth of wisdom and compassion to the everyday dilemmas we all face, is a cause for great rejoicing. Through the teachings found in this book, we can begin to experience the embrace of wisdom and sanity that comes from giving rise to awakened mind, the very heart of the bodhisattva. Truly the remedy for all that ails this world, it can be nurtured and expressed by anyone, regardless of religion, nationality, race, gender, income, health, or age. Of the vast array of thoughts and experience the human mind can give rise to, there is nothing more transformative than the simple profundity of a genuinely kind and good heart. Many of the principles articulated here are relatively easy to comprehend and common to a variety of spiritual traditions. However, the actual experience of awakened mind takes place beyond the confines of any teaching, and ultimately beyond the realm of conceptual thought. Leading us skillfully to this awakened mind, Chagdud Tulku guides us through a time-honored instruction made accessible to our contemporary lives through the Bodhisattva Peace Training. This practice involves three essential steps. First, we encounter teachings from a qualified lama or instructor. Then, we deeply contemplate what we have read or heard in order to determine its validity and relevance. We ask questions, identify doubts, and resolve confusion and misunderstanding. Finally, we meditate, blending the teachings with our mind and heart until we become one with them. Being honest with ourselves about what’s actually arising under the surface of our mind and heart at any given moment, and genuinely transforming anything other than good heart, takes years of experience. Stabilizing, deepening, and expanding that kind heart into a seamless experience of the awakened mind is ultimately a lifelong practice. What matters is not how long it takes, but that it happens authentically, for it is the accumulation of choices we make, moment by moment, that determines our future experience. In our contemporary world of instantaneous access to knowledge, immediate gratification, and instant pain relief, we are accustomed to quick fixes. It would therefore be understandable to think that simply through reading, we could be changed permanently by a book like this and carry its meaning consistently into our daily lives. But reading is only the first step in a lifelong journey. If we don’t thoroughly engage the training, the values we hold so dear can be swept away by the tsunamis of our daily existence. We have spent a lifetime developing responses to pain and difficulty. Changing these old habits is like trying to reverse the momentum of a boulder tumbling down a mountainside. It requires great effort, skill, patience, perseverance, and no small amount of courage. But as we move closer to the realization that life’s meaning and purpose can be found in benefiting others, the strength and sincerity of our efforts will be reflected in the world around us. Through this process that is at once tender and profound, a metamorphosis occurs that fundamentally alters our understanding of ourselves, of others, and of reality itself. If you feel a resonance with Rinpoche’s words—a yearning, even, to make your life and heart one with their meaning—spend time contemplating them, deeply, as they apply to life as you’ve known it. Then meditate on them, again, and again, when alone and in the world, throughout the day, every day, until their essence arises spontaneously as lived experience. Only when we genuinely live these teachings can our lives and our work in the world be transformed.

Out of your heart flow your words and actions. Change your heart, and you'll change your life. According to best-selling author Dr. Gary Smalley, nobody has to live by the destructive subtle lies or believe the distortions of truth this world holds out to us. There are steps, strategies, and beliefs people can bring to their lives to either totally transform them or quietly improve them-and it all starts with hiding God's Word in their hearts. Hiding God's Word in his heart radically changed the life of Smalley himself, and he is seeing it revolutionize the lives of people around him as well-from lust, materialism, selfishness, anger, stress, overeating, anxiety, and guilt, just to name a few. No matter a person's age, experiences, or previous patterns, this book will guide readers to the whys and hows of orchestrating their beliefs to forever change their lives and relationships.
