What did your face look like before your parents were born? In The Face: A Time Code, bestselling author and Zen Buddhist priest Ruth Ozeki recounts, in moment-to-moment detail, a profound encounter with memory and the mirror. Ozeki challenges herself to spend three hours gazing into her own reflection, recording her thoughts and noticing every possible detail. Those solitary hours open up a lifetime's worth of meditations on race, aging, family, death, the body, self-doubt and, finally, acceptance. Ozeki paints an intimate and rich portrait of life as told through a face.

200Ts Vision of Vision One of my formative childhood experiences was in 1968 stepping into the Uptown Theater on Connecticut Avenue in Washington, DC, one of the few movie theaters nationwide that projected in large-screen cinerama. I was there at the urging of a friend, who said I simply must see the remarkable film whose run had started the previous week. "You won't understand it," he said, "but that doesn't matter. " All I knew was that the film was about science fiction and had great special eflPects. So I sat in the front row of the balcony, munched my popcorn, sat back, and experienced what was widely touted as "the ultimate trip:" 2001: A Space Odyssey. My friend was right: I didn't understand it. . . but in some senses that didn't matter. (Even today, after seeing the film 40 times, I continue to discover its many subtle secrets. ) I just had the sense that I had experienced a creation of the highest aesthetic order: unique, fresh, awe inspiring. Here was a film so distinctive that the first half hour had no words whatsoever; the last half hour had no words either; and nearly all the words in between were banal and irrelevant to the plot - quips about security through Voiceprint identification, how to make a phonecall from a space station, government pension plans, and so on.

In Race and the Senses, Sachi Sekimoto and Christopher Brown explore the sensorial and phenomenological materiality of race as it is felt and sensed by the racialized subjects. Situating the lived body as an active, affective, and sensing participant in racialized realities, they argue that race is not simply marked on our bodies, but rather felt and registered through our senses. They illuminate the sensorial landscape of racialized world by combining the scholarship in sensory studies, phenomenology, and intercultural communication. Each chapter elaborates on the felt bodily sensations of race, racism, and racialization that illuminate how somatic labor plays a significant role in the construction of racialized relations of sensing. Their thought-provoking theorizing about the relationship between race and the senses include race as a sensory assemblage, the phenomenology of the racialized face and tongue, kinesthetic feelings of blackness, as well as the possibility of cross-racial empathy. Race is not merely socially constructed, but multisensorially assembled, engaged, and experienced. Grounded in the authors' experiences, one as a Japanese woman living in the USA, and the other as an African American man from Chicago, Race and the Senses is a book about how we feel the racialized world into being.

In Revelation John is given an enigmatic vision which is filled with apocalyptic world events to take place just prior to the return of Christ. Therefore for centuries countless scholars have attempted to interpret the dream and reveal when these future events would come to fruition. But because of its vague and confusing scenarios, they were left perplexed and could only speculate and theorize as to what John was attempting to convey in his prophecy. This writing begins by comparing the stone coffer in the Great Pyramid to the Bibles lost Ark of the Covenant, and in doing so many astounding revelations are brought to light. But when I focus solely on the pyramid itself I stumble across a cryptic clue. And once I unravel its hidden mystery, a 15,000 year old secret is revealed that connects the Great Pyramid to God, the Holy Bible, and Christ, and leads me straight to the book of Revelation in which for the first time ever, Johns vision is revealed. Upon reading this book you will understand that the reason for the ambiguity of Johns vision was because it was not meant to be interpreted until the end of time was at hand. But moreover, you will learn the location of the mysterious city of Babylon; the location of the bottomless pit; when the Antichrist will enter into the world from out of the pit; how and from where he will rise to power; who will crown him as a king; and of his greatest miracle that will deceive many nations into believing he is the risen Christ. But most imperative; you will learn that because Johns vision has been revealed in advance, that at present its a prophecy in the form of a warning, but also, that if this warning is not heeded, it is soon to become one of destiny.

Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2020 by Marie Claire, Bustle, Real Simple, and Literary Hub A Palestinian American woman wrestles with faith, loss, and identity before coming face-to-face with a school shooter in this searing debut. A uniquely American story told in powerful, evocative prose, The Beauty of Your Face navigates a country growing ever more divided. Afaf Rahman, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, is the principal of Nurrideen School for Girls, a Muslim school in the Chicago suburbs. One morning, a shooter—radicalized by the online alt-right—attacks the school. As Afaf listens to his terrifying progress, we are swept back through her memories: the bigotry she faced as a child, her mother’s dreams of returning to Palestine, and the devastating disappearance of her older sister that tore her family apart. Still, there is the sweetness of the music from her father’s oud, and the hope and community Afaf finally finds in Islam. The Beauty of Your Face is a profound and poignant exploration of one woman’s life in a nation at odds with its ideals, an emotionally rich novel that encourages us to reflect on our shared humanity. If others take the time to really see us, to look into our face, they will find something indelibly familiar, something achingly beautiful gazing back.

This commentary on The Gospel of Thomas originally appeared--in a much-truncated form--between and November of 2003 and March of 2005, on the Fantastic Planet weblog. Composed as an attempt to provide a cohesive collection of thoughts and meditations on that most prevalent of Gnostic scriptures, I wanted to produce something that would be useful instead of merely interesting, something that addressed modern concerns within a Gnostic context, by a Gnostic, for people interested in Gnosticism.
