There is growing international interest in the potential of the cultural and creative industries to drive sustainable development and create inclusive job opportunities.

Why art and culture contribute more to an economy than growth and jobs

An indication of this is a recent set of UNESCO guidelines on how to measure and compile statistics about the economic contribution of the cultural industries. But should this be the only reason for funding arts and culture? Cultural industries can be defined as those whose major outputs have some symbolic value – such as fine arts, film and craft – but also possibly including jewellery design, publishing and fashion. Creative industries are defined more broadly. These have knowledge as their major input, and in addition to cultural goods and services could include things like software design and internet services. UNESCO has provided guidelines on ways in which these industries can be classified. This survey quantifies the global economic and social contribution of the sector. These findings echo worldwide trends.

Mind Magic: Using the Law Of Attraction to Make Sex Sizzle

Oprah claims she does–and so do millions of others around the world who are fascinated with the “Law of Attraction.” So what could be a better time than right now–the eve of 2013–to take a long look at how this knowledge can enliven life, love, and sexuality in the New Year. In her bestselling book “The Secret,” author Ronda Byrne draws upon expert anecdotes and borrowed bits of quantum theory to suggest that the Law of Attraction (let’s call it LoA for short) enables us to have everything we want in life if we understand its rules.

I’m not sure the Law is quite as magically encompassing as Byrne implies, but I do trust that you can bring greater zest and promise to your love life by taking its wisdom to heart. I’ll explain precisely how in a moment…but first we need to understand the Law of Attraction, itself. Lectures by Samael Aun Weor. Power Of Drawing State From WIthin And Being Carefree.

This takes the concept of spirituality in its broadest context. The human spirit lives through the characteristics of one’s life. Honesty, loyalty, truthfulness, courage, dedication, perseverance, patience, compassion, responsibility, humility…..these are qualities that reflect the highest and best attributes of humanity. The artistic path will put you in touch with these aspects of yourself (and their reflected negatives) if you are someone who strives to achieve the highest and best goals that are possible. Art, just as sports, can be daunting. Even those who succeed in doing what they love creatively have issues to face. Yes, other people who are not artists have to face these questions, too, but it seems to me easier to hide from them if you are distracted by your office job.

Gnosis Archive | Library | Bookstore | Index | Web Lectures | Ecclesia Gnostica | Gnostic Society GNOSTICISM IS THE TEACHING based on Gnosis, the knowledge of transcendence arrived at by way of interior, intuitive means. Although Gnosticism thus rests on personal religious experience, it is a mistake to assume all such experience results in Gnostic recognitions. It is nearer the truth to say that Gnosticism expresses a specific religious experience, an experience that does not lend itself to the language of theology or philosophy, but which is instead closely affinitized to, and expresses itself through, the medium of myth. Indeed, one finds that most Gnostic scriptures take the forms of myths. The term “myth” should not here be taken to mean “stories that are not true”, but rather, that the truths embodied in these myths are of a different order from the dogmas of theology or the statements of philosophy.
