My Little Blue Dress eThe day This pilgrim knows that he can ask for bread orven shelter from anyone on his journeys and get assistance as he travels He walks across Russia with his knapsack and trusts that God will provide for him From the beginning he has one uestion How does one pray without ceasingHe is given the answer by one aged cleric that he meets and practices the Hurrah For The Blackshirts!: Fascists and Fascism in Britain Between the Wars exercise faithfully until he succeeds on a certain level and is able toncourage and share it with others He mentions other helpful religious works of the time At the Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life end of the book you understand that he has been narrating this to someonelse and is off to Israelwhere he has secured passage on a ship for freeThe journey and glimpses of the life in 1850s Russia is my favorite part of this and yet the point is also about the average Crazy Love everyday person and the uest for truth Also there is a definite draw here for people who are interested in our western versions of meditationsome of the descriptions of how difficult it is to clear your mind and be mindful of practice reminds me of similar writings of Buddhist meditation Today s Christian who has noxperience of liturgical religious practices may find the views on prayer really confining and outdated but the main character s arnest desire to be closer to Jesus is also very modern Of course I first came across this book in Franny and Zooey I later found it at a place called Urban Ore I love how virtuosic the pilgrim is with his humility how open he is to learning secrets from veryone he meets along the road and how clearly he describes attaining unceasing internal prayer as an xperiment of the imagination to picture your heart beating in your chest and to slowly travel inwards with your creative intellect until you reach it to sit silently in the spaces between heartbeats and then feel the love baby He also did a good job of reminding me how to stay faithful to teachers who have passed through the portal of dreams and sometimes make us feel abandoned and alone That s when a book can come to the rescue I felt like whenever I put this book down I could not help but breathe deep and clear and walk along the sunny side of reality a balm against those cut off suffocating parts of my judgemental mindThe Pilgrim Continues His Way wasn t as good in my opinion Exactly twenty one years ago last April I uit smokingIt was the WORST ordeal of my life bar NONENo kidding I just uit cold turkey They say there s no fool like an Old FoolThat day I felt lost rootless I felt I was in a lifeless vacuum I was suddenly a disembodied soulAnd that s xactly what happens when you uit cold turkeyPreviously your life is so busy and tied up with the ndless routines of work and smoke breaks are your reward and thereby part and parcel of your work and of the stress that arises during family times as well that you think NOTHING of uittingPoor foolNOW I no Longer Had The Cigarettes That had the cigarettes that the crutch for my Social Self I was in a VoidEach day was brute agony Rather than lose my mind which may well have happened I had to fill that void with a voiceMy voicePrayingTHIS is the story of that prayer a prayer prayed a long time ago by a solitary soul who was on an ndless pilgrimage around RussiaHe had left behind Black Heart, Red Ruby everything that he held dearxcept his FaithSome brave people chance all on a wing and a prayerSo this uiet humble narrator walks thousands of miles casting his fate to the wind and to GodCarpe diem uam minimum fate to the wind and to GodCarpe diem uam minimum posteroYes this little unassuming man takes the worldly Roman Horace to his Christian heart seizing the day and leaving what it and tomorrow will bring to his Master s willWho among us could do that todayFor sufficient to ach day is not only the good of it but the vil as well And soon after uitting smoking I was to learn that IN SPADESOne of the biggest software conglomerates in the world was designing a new computer tool for our organization and I along with two other former clerks was slated to troubleshoot and critiue itThis system was the PITS and we low guys on the totem pole didn t care who knew it The backwash from industry and our own senior management then became intense Big money was on the table We were being swept aside by a tsunamiBut we fought anyway And our work seen as a breezy rubber stamp of approval was very nearly stamped XPD remember THAT blockbuster novelThree years later I sat across the boardroom table from my Director General and told him there was NO WAY the system would workSo guess what it went back to the drawing board boys For ten or twelve long years AFTER I retiredAnd you know what ELSE They say if a tree falls in remote Siberia someone hears it And they say New Plant Parent: Learn the Ways of Plant Parenthood even the trees havears Believe me kids Hard Work Pays Off Never say NEVERAnd a year before retirement for my contribution to our organization I was awarded the ueen s Golden Jubilee Medal And with all the unfamiliar and unwanted publicity promptly fell into BurnoutAnd like us three lowly peons this little pilgrim is repeatedly robbed screamed at and Beaten Within Inches Of His within inches of his Yet he keeps walking humblyWhat s his secretThis one prayerThe very heartbeat of the Russian Orthodox Philokalia a copy of which the pilgrim has been given and which he carries all across 19th century Russia in his backpackAnd the prayer isSimply Lord Jesus have mercy on me a sinner Which he and I repeated without ceasing Through blizzards Over mountains In the midst of wincing pain To his amazed hosts when given hospitality In. L Russian by Reginald M French and with an introduction by Huston Smith author of The World’s Religions The Way of a Pilgrim is the chronicle of an anonymous nineteenth century Russian Christian?. ,

I m fairly sure that I stumbled upon this while studying Dostoevsky for my final year dissertation at universityThe first text The Way of a Pilgrim has a timeless feel The pilgrim wanders across Russia from one place of pilgrimage to another The pilgrim holds to the practise of continual prayer first praying Christ have mercy on me building up to Christ have mercy upon me a sinner and finally reaching Lord Jesus Christ have mercy upon me a sinner The pilgrim walks The words of the prayer fall in place to the pattern of the pilgrim s heartbeat The praying is continuous The non believer suspects that the altered breathing pattern has an Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey effect on the brain It s a solid spiritual text The author was unknown and I don t recall any details that hinted at the time or place of composition There are no details orven hints about the pilgrim s life before pilgrimage and continuous prayer But for the development of the prayer the pilgrim s way could be ternal or at least the continuous work of a life of pilgrimageThe seuel The Pilgrim Continues His Way is ntirely different and unintentionally funny It is firmly placed in the late nineteenth century An odd group of characters including a university professor meet and discuss their religious ЯED experiences which freuently seem to include the devil appearing to personally tempt them as in Ivan s fevered vision in The Brothers Karamazov but without Dostoevsky s literary gravitas All of these characters are of higher social status possibly to add social authority to their conversion stories or then again it could be a wish fulfilment fantasy on the part of the anonymous author of the sociallite sharing the spiritual outlook of people for whom the appearance of the Devil in veryday life was a believable phenomena It s hard to imagine anybody but a hardened believer finding these stories remotely plausible unless they were also fond of adding too much vodka to their afternoon beer As spiritual reading I could only recommend the first part I m sure it has an appeal to non Orthodox Christians as well and indeed non Christians too as it is an account of spiritual practise not a statement of revelation or theology As a whole both books could be useful for a reader looking for some insight in to pre Revolutionary Russian religious thinking for ordinary believers This is part of the spiritual outlook of the minor characters of dozens of Russian and arly Soviet novels tonight s my night for reviews about books that nearly drove me crazythis is one of those books i had loved franny and zooey but i didn t think that the little book that nearly drove fanny crazy was anything than a plot device and then one day i walked into a bookstore i d never been in before and there it was franny s special book the one that changed verything it was real i d been struggling to maintain some kind of faith at that point i wanted very badly to believe and that need had been deeply ingrained and so i took the book home i read it and then as franny did i began to put it into practice i tried to pray without ceasing i believe i succeeded and i got to a strange place in my mind that way and finally i felt as i did about the ouija board as a child that i was toying with I can see why I was so taken with this book the first time I read it Then it opened doors into prayer which I never knew were possible Now years later it seems less profound but still sweet were possible Now years later it seems less profound but still sweet full of wonderful little vignettes about the Possiblities That A Life Of Constant Prayer that a life of constant prayer offerRead this MANY years ago shortly after my daughters were born Don t know if it was the book itself my spiritual immaturity at the time Grace or a combination of all three but this was a life changing xperience for me Although there are not many spiritual mystics we are all called in Holy Scripture to a life of contemplative prayer The anonymous pilgrim in this Way offers his insights and xperiences for our benefitGod willing I hope to re read this soon Otkrovennye Rasskazy Strannika Dukhovnomu

all the hoopla is about Funny story about that sometime I re read this during a book purge and I think ultimately it is a wonderful little book approachable from both a literary or a religious viewpointBasically it is this an anonymous journalbiography of a young man s search for God through the Jesus prayer This is set in 1860 s Russia when it is apparently common that when life does not go well that people often give up verything they know and hit the road ie searching for meaning or purpose in the religious relics or Monsieur Pain establishments of.
