Among the figures discussed are the anti-philanthropic Henry David Thoreau and the dangerously philanthropic John Brown.

A Few Thoughts about the Course

Author: Robert Brink
Publisher: Dog Ear Publishing
ISBN: 9781598588859
Release Date: 2009-03
Genre: Religion

A Few Thoughts About the Course examines several key concepts from A Course in Miracles which show that our perspective on the world around us is mistaken. These key concepts are: the reversal of cause and effect; the belief that ideas can leave their source; and level confusion-which also entails a belief that the mind is dependent on the body. According to A Course in Miracles, our perceptions resulting from the above phenomena show us a false picture. What leads to our acceptance of the misperceptions resulting from these three false concepts is perception of a state of separation (being separated from each other and separated from God). A Few Thoughts About the Course examines the keys to understanding how the false perspective of the perception of separation can be undone so we can return to a remembrance of our oneness with God and with all of God's creation. Robert Brink has avidly practiced and studied the content of A Course in Miracles since December of 1991. His lifelong dedication to Jesus' request in the gospels to "seek first the kingdom of God" is based on an understanding that "seek first" means it must be the highest priority in life. His unique perspective in this regard provides valuable insight into the spiritual nature of A Course in Miracles, which is also enhanced and enriched through the content of several other divinely inspired works: God Calling, God at Eventide, The Spirit of Findhorn, Opening Doors Within, The Living Word, and The Living Silence. The striking parallels shown between similar passages from these books and A Course in Miracles help illustrate the divine/spiritual nature of A Course in Miracles and also bear witness to the author's own close personal relationship with Jesus.

The Haunting of Twenty First Century America

Author: Joel Martin
Publisher: Forge Books
ISBN: 9781466828032
Release Date: 2013-12-17
Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

In this companion volume to The Haunting of America and The Haunting of Twentieth-Century America, national bestselling authors William J. Birnes and Joel Martin explore today's intellectual and spiritual awakening—one that is challenging traditional belief systems. Birnes and Martin show that, though many governments deny the importance of a spiritual component to national policy, even the most conservative governments have based social and financial policy decisions on a profound belief in the existence of the paranormal, ghosts, and spirits. From using psychic spying programs to gather intelligence on enemy nations to investigating the use of mind control to impede the abilities of hostile troops, the U.S. government has continuously developed paranormal weapons and tactics alongside their more mundane counterparts. U.S. Presidents from Franklin Pierce through Ronald Reagan regularly relied on the paranormal, using trance mediums, channelers, and astrologists to help plan agendas and travel schedules. The Haunting of Twenty-First-Century America is unlike any American history you will ever read—it posits that not only is the paranormal more normal than most people think, but that it is driving current events to a new "Fourth Culture" of the twenty-first century.
