9780692324813: GODLESS -- Living a Valuable Life Beyond Beliefs (Volume 6)

As we have become more civilized we have lost the wisdom of the ancients. We have taken their understanding and limited it to formulas. What we want is to know what works, and to make things work better so our lives are more comfortable.
The sophisticated structures of civilized philosophies, theologies, and political-economy hide the truths buried under their foundations.

Godless
blends what Rasley has learned from the Basa Rai in the Nepal Himalayas, from Quakers, and the American philosophy of Pragmatism. The book describes a values-based way of living derived from the author's cross-cultural experiences. It encourages a spiritual response of awe and gratitude for being alive and conscious in this wonderful shared world.

From the Author:

"Godless" explains why beliefs divide us and how values unite us. Imagine a world of people and nations guiding their actions by objective evidence instead of beliefs, of shared values instead of competing ideologies or religious doctrines.   
"You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will be as one."
John Lennon - Imagine

From the Back Cover:

      "Godless" begins as a memoir reaching back into the author's Puritan family history and the Salem witch trials.  Rasley's worldwide travels, spiritual quest, and intellectual journey took him far from his small town roots in the Presbyterian Church and Republican Party.
       Fascination with cultures very different from his Hoosier homeland developed during adventure travel breaks from studies in London and the University of Chicago.  A successful law practice eventually allowed him the freedom to combine ethnographic research with mountaineering expeditions and philanthropy projects.  A special bond with the Rai people of Basa village developed during Rasley's "philanthro-trekking" in the Nepal Himalayas. 
       Indianapolis First Friends Quaker Meeting agreed to sponsor fundraising for a foundation Rasley developed in partnership with Basa village.  These dissimilar people on opposite sides of the world share fundamental values in their tolerant, peaceful, and simple approach to life.   "Godless" blends what Rasley has learned from the Basa Rai and Quakers with the classic American philosophy of Pragmatism to describe a values-based way of living.  It encourages a spiritual response of awe and gratitude and advocates replacing divisive ideological politics with pragmatic decision-making.
    
Jeff Rasley's undergraduate studies at the University of Chicago combined concentrations in Philosophy, Religion, and Politics, he received a J.D. from Indiana University and M.Div from Christian Theological Seminary.  He teaches a class on philanthropy and nonprofit organizations in the Butler University Honors Program.

Godless -- Living a Valuable Life beyond Beliefs is a critique of fundamentalist religions and extremist political ideologies. It advocates guiding our lives by positive values and making pragmatic decisions. If we abandon superstitious beliefs, we can rally around the fundamental values of taking good care of ourselves, assisting those in need, and tending to the needs of our shared world. Godless recommends a modern pragmatic version of the Judeo-Christian ethic of loving self and neighbor. It does not encourage readers to abandon their religious communities, but suggests a way to worship focused on awe and gratitude. It doesn t demand leaving political parties, but proposes a pragmatic method of conflict resolution to replace the political gridlock of divisive ideological politics. Living a valuable life beyond beliefs is a way of living with mindful attention to caring for ourselves and others. It is derived from the cultural wisdom of the Rai people of Nepal, values advocated by the Quaker Society of Friends, and the classical philosophy of American Pragmatism. It is a way to find a golden mean of balance between selfishness and selflessness. Jeff Rasley s undergraduate studies at the University of Chicago combined concentrations in Philosophy, Religion, and Politics; he received a J.D. from Indiana University and M.Div from Christian Theological Seminary. He is a professor at Butler University teaching an Honors class on philanthropy and nonprofit organizations. Codice libro della libreria APC9780692324813
