LORD OF THE WORLD
BY ROBERT HUGH BENSON
CLAVI DOMUS DAVID
I am perfectly aware that this is a terribly sensational book, and open to innumerable criticisms on that account, as well as on many others. But I did not know how else to express the principles I desired (and which I passionately believe to be true) except by producing their lines to a sensational point. I have tried, however, not to scream unduly loud, and to retain, so far as possible, reverence and consideration for the opinions of other people. Whether I have succeeded in that attempt is quite another matter.

Painting Outside the Lines: The Life of Psychic Artist
Author Melissa Harris
Fine artist, free spirit, successful entrepreneur, psychic and medium, Melissa Harris shares her art and her life - a feast of creative exploration. As a "sensitive" childhood leads to young adult struggles, she expands portrait painting to open doorways into souls and sojourns in New York and Paris to learn to paint only what she loves. Autobiographical in nature, in this book Melissa reveals her beliefs about the truths of some general traits of the artist and the common ingredients of an artist's life. "For me, there is no other choice but to paint." Painting Outside the Lines is a visual feast, vibrant in color and emotion, sensuous and soulful. As we enter the enchanted world of the artist as seer and adventurer, Melissa's expressive work captures the universal stories of our own human experiences. If these oils, watercolors and collages are her medicine, this healing spreads across the pages, inspiring us to express our inner world and ignite our visionary nature, a reminder that even erratic and ever-evolving lives can lead to graceful changes and that, truly, "Anything is possible!" melissaharris.com
The Audible Life Stream, Ancient Secret of Dying While Living
By Alistair Conwell
The secret to unlocking your purpose in life is solving the mystery of death while still living. The Audible Life Stream, or Primordial Sound Current, is the all-pervasive universal consciousness within everyone. Few realize there is credible evidence indicating that Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, and so on, all perfected the meditative technique of turning their attention inwards, thereby merging with the Audible Life Stream, to become adepts of dying while living. The Audible Life Stream: Ancient Secret of Dying While Living is the first book to provide convincing evidence of the Audible Life Stream and emphasize the importance of it to every human being, since none of us can escape the clutches of the Lord of Death. This unique book provides evidence of the Audible Life Stream from a variety of sources, including, independent testimonials of near-death experiences and out-of-body experiences from people in USA, UK and Australia; excerpts from major religious texts; simply explained quantum physics principles; and independent anecdotes from the increasingly popular field of sound/music therapy.
Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back
by Todd Burpo, Lynn Vincent (Contributor)
"A beautifully written glimpse into heaven that will encourage those who doubt and thrill those who believe."
"Do you remember the hospital, Colton?" Sonja said. "Yes, mommy, I remember," he said. "That's where the angels sang to me."
When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren't expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed--a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy's trip to heaven and back.
Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgery-and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born. He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read.
"Heaven Is for Real" will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child.
A Simple Plan to Live Fully Charged
By ASHLEY KOFF, KATHY KAEHLER
From celebrated dietitian Ashley Koff and fitness trainer to the stars Kathy Kaehler comes Mom Energy, an exciting new way for moms to tap into their own natural and renewable sources of energy to overcome fatigue and achieve their personal health goals. Koff and Kaehler have put together a safe, sensible, flexible, and, most importantly, effective program for moms of any age-whether their kids are in diapers or heading off to college.
While being a mom is undeniably rewarding, it's also one of the most physically demanding and stressful activities in modern society. In fact, one of the most common complaints from mothers is that they simply don't have the energy to do everything they want, which means they end up sacrificing one thing (usually their own health) to accomplish another. Koff and Kaehler lay out a three-part program (reorganize, rehab, and recharge) that can be molded to any lifestyle to help moms naturally up their energy levels. And with this enhanced energy, they will get all sorts of other unexpected benefits, including a stronger immune system, easier weight loss, and even better relationships. Mom Energy will teach readers what will help and what will hurt in their quest for optimum energy. Find it Here

The Truth About Food: The Good, the Bad & the Downright Dangerous
By Gillian Drake
We literally are what we eat, and the health of our body is directly related to the nutritional quality of our food. But up until know we’ve had no way to identify which foods are food for us and which are not. Our food ingredient labels are flawed, and do not five us the whole truth. They focus on calories and grams of fat. But in fact there are good fats and bad fats, good calories and bad calories. To address this confusion, the author has developed a revolutionary system of calibration the total nutritional value of food, not assessing it by a breakdown of fats, vitamins or calorie content, but by its life force, or vitality, which represents all of these tings and more. With a background in biochemistry and more than 20 years as a nutritional consultant, Gillian is committed to helping others live healthier and more productive lives. She helps to fill in the gaps that conventional medicine and psychology often leave, and her knowledge of and experience with alternative health and cutting-edge nutritional research make her a valuable resource on many levels. In essence, she offers "insider information" not available anywhere else, revealing truths and insights that can serve to improve her clients' health, relationships, and outlook, including helping them identify their mission in life through the Soul Map. gilliandraketruthaboutfood.com
Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life
By Karen Armstrong
One of the most original thinkers on the role of religion in the modern world—author of such acclaimed books as A History of God, Islam, and Buddha—now gives us an impassioned and practical book that can help us make the world a more compassionate place.
Karen Armstrong believes that while compassion is intrinsic in all human beings, each of us needs to work diligently to cultivate and expand our capacity for compassion. Here, in this straightforward, thoughtful, and thought-provoking book, she sets out a program that can lead us toward a more compassionate life.
The twelve steps Armstrong suggests begin with “Learn About Compassion” and close with “Love Your Enemies.” In between, she takes up “compassion for yourself,” mindfulness, suffering, sympathetic joy, the limits of our knowledge of others, and “concern for everybody.” She suggests concrete ways of enhancing our compassion and putting it into action in our everyday lives, and provides, as well, a reading list to encourage us to “hear one another’s narratives.” Throughout, Armstrong makes clear that a compassionate life is not a matter of only heart or mind but a deliberate and often life-altering commingling of the two.
Who Moved My Cheese? Written by Spencer Johnson, coauthor of The One Minute Manager.

Who Moved My Cheese? is often distributed by managers to employees as a motivational tool, but the lessons it teaches can benefit literally anyone, young or old, rich or poor, looking for less stress and more success in every aspect of work and life.
No Storm Lasts Forever
Transforming Suffering Into Insight
By DR. TERRY GORDON
As a cardiologist, Dr. Terry Gordon dealt with life-and-death circumstances on a daily basis. He learned that life is precious and tenuous; it can change in an instant. Such a dramatic shift occurred when his son, Tyler, was involved in a car accident, sustaining a severe spinal-cord injury that left him paralyzed. Leading his family through the experience, Terry's journey resulted in a spiritual awakening to a clearer understanding of life and the truths it has to offer. Terry has learned that our experiences become calamities only if we make the conscious decision to make tragedies out of them. Rather than lamenting the so-called adversities, we can choose to be grateful for them, embracing them as gifts from the Divine. These gifts provide fertile soil for growth and enlightenment, offering us the opportunity to transform turmoil, disappointment, and suffering into understanding, insight, and resolve . . . and such gifts are presented to you in No Storm Lasts Forever.

From the Rearview Mirror
By BILL MILLIKEN
From the Rearview Mirror is the story of Bill Milliken's journey from an affluent Pittsburgh suburb to the streets of Harlem and the Lower East Side of New York City in the 1960s, on to communal living in Georgia in the 1970s, to working with multiple presidential administrations in Washington, D.C.
He struggled with an undiagnosed learning disability in school, believing he was dumb and had nowhere to go. After connecting with the Young Life outreach program at the age of 17, however, he found his calling doing street work with homeless, addicted, and other at-risk teens in the turbulent '60s. Bill and his colleagues founded what grew into Communities In Schools, a highly effective organization working to bring services to young people and prevent them from dropping out of school. Along the way, Bill struggled with bringing his personal life into alignment with his ideals, coming to terms with organized religion and his own spiritual path, and creating the family and community he'd always longed for.
