A typical theme of the Second Great Awakening was that people couldtake their salvation into their own hands. This was opposed to thechurch being in charge of their souls. Evangelicals believed thatthe second coming of Jesus Christ was at hand and people needed tocleanse their souls.
The theme of a book is the message the author is trying to get across. Themes are ALWAYS in complete sentences. For example: Your friends are more important than your duties.
In the early 1700s revolutions In Both religious and nonreligiousthought transformed the western world. These movement began inEurope and affected life in the American colonies.
enlightenment is similar to the Great Awakening because Great Awakening is a movement and so as enlightenment and they are both around 1700s. Actually I Do Believe that Is indeed true, although The Great Awakening Was A Big Part of "Spiritual RELIGION", and The Enlightenment Was Focused On Th…e Physics Of Science, In which was Fairly Different Because There is Based Question's On How we were Really Born Onto Earth. Many people can answer that In A Flash, and other's may say we don't know the answer yet. Why is that? Well The People that can answer that in A snap have a religious answer such as "Well Adam and Eve Were the first humans (As to which I believe is indeed true since I am more into the religious side), and God Created us, and the animals e.t.c;" Scientifically Proven answers..No one has. So to Be honest There is Hardly Any Similarities, in which someone would say Makes a difference or moves anyone's point of view or philosophy. The only similarities there is Was they were Highly Important, and made a difference in our life and society and yes they were in the 1700's..you Didn't help People Much Just saying -_- and I am Just an 8th grader.....

Overall, the book involves feminism and social confinement. Through the use of clothing symbols in The Awakening , Kate Chopin shows the confinements of women in the Victorian age. The purpose of these items was to hide the women from society- to keep them pure and constricted. With these items sh…e is fully dressed at the beginning. The sun bonnets and the parasols literally keep the sun away and figuratively keep the women from seeing society and the true life of people. These items keep them secluded from the ugliness of society and the new ideas that some people have. The gloves keep the women from literally touching the world; they should be kept under control. The cover illustration displays the typically Victorian clothing where Edna is literally and figuratively secluded from society. When Edna goes swimming, travels to the island, and finally when she dies she always undresses. This symbolically removes society from her body paralleling the removal of her clothes. Edna's lack of clothing exposes who she really is and her individuality. She sheds her clothes in order to find herself without society trying to pull her towards the traditional Victorian roles. As Edna progresses in her self discovery, she takes more and more clothes off until there are no more and she is free. ( Full Answer )

West Side Story was based on the play. As was Romeo Must Die.. If you think about it, Twilight also has similar themes such as forbidden love, Family strife, not fitting in to your lover's world, etc.
Most critics agree that Edna swam out into the ocean and committed suicide at the end of the novel. Edna physically and emotionally leaves the world at the end of the novel. I think she does this because she has tried different ways of becoming an individual including painting, moving out, and… finally telling Robert how she feels. Yet none of these work, and she doesn't have any options left besides death. Edna commits suicide because she cannot figure out what to do with her life- society discourages and prevents her from doing what she wants. The Victorian age does not allow her to be herself and therefore she leaves. Edna does succeed because she feels as though she has no more options left. Killing yourself is the ultimate act of removal because no one can confine you any longer you are free. The lack of confinement also brings physical death. Edna cannot try a new way to express her individuality because she is gone. Edna's actions are not moral because she left behind her children who now do not have a mother. She only though of herself and her feelings when she killed herself- not how her actions would affect her family. Although she had already removed herself from her children by sending them to a family member, she was still alive and still their mother. ( Full Answer )
The Second Great Awakening was a religious movement that occurredaround 1790 in the United States. A common theme associated withthis time was that people had the power to take salvation intotheir own hands.
The majority of the novel takes place in New Orleans, LA. The settings all work together to create different settings for the steps of Edna's growth. They serve as symbols for her level of individuality and nonconformity and develop these themes. Cheniere Caminada is the most freeing setting where …Edna can really be herself. She goes there for Sunday mass where she actually requests Robert's presence instead of him just showing up wherever she is. She becomes sick on the island but Robert waits hours for her to wake up. This takes place after her first swim making her escape to a freeing environment. This setting symbolizes the freedom coming from self-isolation. Grand Isle is the middle level of Edna's growth where she is trying to become and individual but can't quite accomplish it yet. The island has a sense of freedom but her husband is still there so she must still be the Victorian wife. She does learn some ways of the Creoles on the island that are typical Victorian women yet still speak freely. On Grand Isle, she is expected to be the perfect mother even though she doesn't want to. New Orleans is a mix of the other two settings with two houses. In New Orleans in the big house she is supposed to be entertaining members of society and confining to what society wants her to do. The pigeon house allows her to be independent yet also in society. She can move away from the materialistic society but yet the house is still not enough and she must return to the sea where she feels free. ( Full Answer )

The cycle (not the theme) of Judges is this: Israel rebels, God judges them through another nation, the people repent, and God raises up a deliverer, a judge. In this pattern there may be discerned a main theme: God's Faithfulness to His People. Now, it could be argued otherwise, but truly, God's fa…ithfulness through His covenant is the reason why He remains Israel's God, and it shows the principle all throughout the book that as 1 John 1.9 says, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us of all unrighteousness." This is a just, holy God, who hates sin, but who loves His people, and He always softens the hearts of His true people. We know that His love is not baseless, but had in view not the sacrifice of lambs and bulls, but of the Passover Lamb: Christ, and that is why He remained Israel's God, and why the righteous of Israel cried out to Him when in oppression, because of His covenant.

Madame Ratignolle is the ideal mother-woman in the novel. . Feminine Ideal- she describes as a "Madonna" . She's a great mom, beautiful, loves her husband . Perhaps, Chopin drew in the book to show that women can be happy in a traditional role, if that role was the person's choice
New Moon, the second novel in the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer, is a more serious novel than the enchanting love story in Twilight . In New Moon , Edward leaves Bella and Bella goes into deep mourning. With this setting comes a number of themes not present in Twilight . From loss to healin…g, death to forgiveness, and the power of consequences, New Moon takes a serious look at the darker side of love. Loss in New Moon One of the most present themes of New Moon is that of loss. The main loss is obvious-Bella loses Edward when he decides to leave after he feels he and his family put her in danger. Loss is prevalent throughout, though. Edward loses his hope that they can survive as a couple. Jacob loses his humanity as he transitions into a werewolf and a new existence because of that. Bella loses her inhibitions and becomes a thrill seeker. Edward perceives that he has lost Bella for good when he thinks she has killed herself. Edward attempts to lose his life. Loss and the consequences of loss are largely what make New Moon into the story it is. Love stories are not all romance and perfection and often do involve loss at some level whether it is as trivial as the loss of being single or as significant at the eventual loss of the relationship if it fails. This theme adds an edge of reality to this story. Healing/Forgivness The flipside of all the loss in New Moon is the process of healing and forgiveness. New Moon presents its readers with many hardships, but for every hardship the characters go through, they heal and move on, or at least begin the process of moving on. Even though it may appear that Bella never truly moves on after Edward leaves, she does find joy again in her friendship with Jacob and begins to heal. Jacob is faced with a difficult new transition-that of becoming a werewolf-and at first hides himself away as he adapts, but soon he is back to interacting with Bella and finds a new life. Finally, perhaps the most significant sign of healing and forgiveness comes after Edward and Bella are reunited at the end of the book. Bella does not have to forgive him for leaving her, but she does. He also must forgive himself. Together, they heal from the events of New Moon and do stay together as a couple. This theme focuses on the better sides of humanity. While everyone experiences loss, unpleasantness, or makes mistakes, it is our ability to heal, forgive, and move on (or not) that often influence our paths in life. Consequences Dealing with consequences is a theme seen throughout the story. This theme goes hand in hand with loss often, but not always. Edward leaves and must deal with the consequence of Bella becoming close friends with Jacob in his absence. Bella must deal with the consequences of Edward leaving. Jacob must deal with the consequences of becoming a werewolf. Everyone close to these three central characters also deals with consequences of their decisions and resulting behavior. While everyone deals with consequences of some sort on likely a frequent basis, this theme in particular links to the author's religion and what is likely her personal beliefs. Stephenie Meyer is Mormon and the Mormon religion has a strong concept of consequences and repentance, as do many religions. No one in Twilight makes it through the stories without feeling the brunt of consequences, or going through the cycle of forgiveness. Defiance Defiance is a somewhat sneaky theme in New Moon , but it is present throughout. When Edward leaves, he tells Bella not to do anything stupid. But then she spends most of the book doing the opposite. She not only defies his request (And why not? He left after all), but she also defies her own logic and usual safety convictions-riding motorcycles, going up to biker strangers, and even jumping off a cliff. She defies Jacob's advice to stay away from Edward, and Edward's requests to stay away from Jacob. Meanwhile, other characters are doing the same thing. Jacob more or less defies werewolf rules by hinting at Bella until she has enough information to guess that he is indeed a werewolf. Edward also makes a fair attempt to defy vampire law in order to kill himself. Overall The more serious nature of the themes of New Moon give this story an edge not present in the first book Twilight , and also significantly different from the rest of the series. Ultimately, the entire series is about the love between Edward and Bella, but in New Moon, Edward is mostly gone. New Moon focuses on what happens when you lose people and facets of your life.

Enlightenment, which is a state in which we see all things clearly, just as they are, without judgments and preconceptions, and where suffering ends can be attained by following what the Buddha described as the Eightfold Path. It is a path between the extremes of sensual pleasure and asceticism. The… Buddha made this observation when he became aware of the impact of his opulent early life as a prince and the lack of progress towards enlightenment he archived as a wandering (and starving) mendicant holy man. The Noble Eightfold Path was also described by the Buddha as The Middle Way. The Noble Eightfold Path consists of: 1. Right View 2. Right Intention (thought) 3. Right Speech 4. Right Action 5. Right Livelihood 6. Right Effort 7. Right Mindfulness 8. Right Concentration Now, it should be said that its not just intellectually "getting it". It is living it in your whole being which gets you to enlightenment. I intellectually get the concept of emptiness of inherit existence, but I still working on seeing it without thinking about it. That's the hard part. When it becomes you then you are enlightened. It like learning a new language, for many years you have to translate from one language to another, but when you finally get it, you think in the new language! It is really amazing when that happens. That's the same difference between understanding and practicing the Buddha's teachings and actually becoming enlightened. ( Full Answer )
