The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
by Eckhart Tolle
Ekhart Tolle's message is simple: living in the now is the truest path to happiness and enlightenment. And while this message may not seem stunningly original or fresh, Tolle's clear writing, supportive voice and enthusiasm make this an excellent manual for anyone who's ever wondered what exactly "living in the now" means. Foremost, Tolle is a world-class teacher, able to explain complicated concepts in concrete language. More importantly, within a chapter of reading this book, readers are already holding the world in a different container - more conscious of how thoughts and emotions get in the way of their ability to live in genuine peace and happiness.
Tolle packs a lot of information and inspirational ideas into The Power of Now. (Topics include the source of Chi, enlightened relationships, creative use of the mind, impermanence and the cycle of life.) Thankfully, he's added markers that symbolise "break time". This is when readers should close the book and mull over what they just read. As a result, The Power of Now reads like the highly acclaimed A Course in Miracles - a spiritual guidebook that has the potential to inspire just as many study groups and change just as many lives for the better.

Music for Healing and Relaxation
A Short Introduction
The health benefits of music have been known for a very long time. It is even hypothesized that the universal appeal of music is related to the experience of hearing the mother's heartbeat in the womb. Although the reasons why music therapy are effective are still subject to debate, it is a fact that it does produce positive and measurable physiological effects, even in relatively healthy individuals.
The New Age (also referred to as the New Age movement, New Age spirituality, and Cosmic Humanism) is a decentralized Western social and spiritual movement that seeks "Universal Truth" and the attainment of the highest individual human potential. It includes aspects of Occultism, astrology, esotericism, metaphysics, alternative medicine, music, collectivism, sustainability, and nature. New Age spirituality is characterized by an individual approach to spiritual practices and philosophies.
The New Age movement includes elements of older spiritual and religious traditions ranging from atheism and monotheism through classical pantheism, naturalistic pantheism, and panentheism to polytheism combined with science and Gaia philosophy: particularly archaeoastronomy, astronomy, ecology, environmentalism, the Gaia hypothesis, psychology, and physics. New Age practices and philosophies sometimes draw inspiration from major world religions: Buddhism, Chinese folk religion, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism; with particularly strong influences from East Asian religions, Gnosticism, Neopaganism, New Thought, Spiritualism, Theosophy, Universalism, and Western esotericism. Additional terms for the movement include All is One and Mind-Body-Spirit.
The modern New Age movement emerged in a distinct form in the late 1960s and early 1970s, although its roots can be traced back to the 19th and early 20th centuries. It gained momentum in the 1980s and strengthened with the Harmonic Convergence event in 1987. Diverse individuals from around the world practice New Age spirituality.

Stories from A-Z
Spiritual Power, Ancient Wisdom
Nowadays many lists of webpages (including these pages on Avalonís Treasury) offer the possibility to not only provide a title and a short description for your site but to also publish a whole story that points to your website. You should use this opportunity since an informative story acquires much more new visitors for your internet pages than a simple entry in a list of websites.
Writing for the internet is a special challenge since most visitors of a webpage only skim through texts in order to find the information they were seeking as quickly as possible. It is therefore very important to structure your stories in a way that makes them easy to comprehend and quick to read. In this context it is helpful to start the text with a summary of its content and only then to explain more details step by step - this way the visitor of the webpage can decide after every paragraph if he already has learned enough or if he wants to read more information.
Use short paragraphs that structure your story in single ideas - a maximum of 3-4 sentences per paragraph is ideal. Besides the main heading of the story subheadings should be used so that visitors can find the part of the text they are interested in by skimming. The headings should not be longer than 10 words and summarize the following part of the story in an informative way. Also the usage of bold and italic words offers the possibility to highlight important passages of the text. But italic characters can be hard to read on screen - if they are used to mark citations quotation marks therefore can be used as an alternative for highlighting.
Lists with bullets are also ideal to structure ideas in a way that can be captured at a glance and that differs from the rest of the text - if you want to stress the amount of information in your story (e.g. 8 Methods for Writing better Stories) you can also use numbered lists. Furthermore images and references are elements that attract attention and thereby structure a story - if possible your images should have a highlighted caption that gets the attention of your readers. References can be combined with quotations and lead to the originator of the statement - if you highlight quotations using coloured text the structure of your story is enhanced further.
Also the stories on the page http://www.alte
t-wisdom.html were structured this way in order to allow a quick reading thereby helping the visitors of this page to easily find the information they are seeking. If you want to point to this page you can use the following information about our website and the page itself:
- Website: Our short description is "Webshop for Alternative Health, Jewelry and Books about Crystal Healing".
- Page: Websites and stories about "Spiritual Power, Ancient Wisdom" can be found on this page.
Well structured stories are an important possibility to make the own website more popular and to stress your personal expertise in a field of knowledge. If you take care that your visitors can skim through the content of your stories in order to find the important things they want to know you will soon gain additional guests for your website thereby increasing your reputation on the internet.
