Following Journey Into the Flame—“a spiritual adventure of the first order” (New York Times bestselling author Felix Palma)—comes the second part in a post-apocalyptic trilogy about a set of ancient books that hold the key to humanity’s survival. In 2030, after the Great Disruption brought humanity to the brink of a second dark age, the Chronicles of Satraya were discovered, restoring hope in the world. But the secret powers in their pages remained largely unknown. There were some, however, who understood them. The Reges Hominum, the Kings of Men, a clandestine group influencing history from the shadows, sought to use their hidden gifts to regain world control. But their plans were foiled by an unlikely group: Alain Perrot, an eccentric old man and former member of the Council of Satraya; Special Agent Valerie Perrot, his daughter; and Logan Ford, a young painter who discovered he was the son of one of the Chronicles’ original finders, long since murdered in an effort to protect them. Soon, seemingly unrelated global events pull Logan and his allies into another contest with those enemies determined to bring a rising world back down. The earth’s still-recovering energy supply is put at risk. Illnesses spread. Earthquakes without epicenters shatter the land. And the only things holding the world together are the Chronicles, connected to a series of scattered, hidden mirrors around the globe. With T.R. Williams’s trademark excitement, mystery, magic, and deep wisdom, the second book in the Rising World trilogy ensures that you will never look at your reflection the same way again.
LOOKING THROUGH THE MIRROR takes the reader on a journey to freedom from the inner constraints created through childhood abuse. It offers unique insight into the creation of the negative self-image and view of reality by identifying the precise points in childlike awareness where development shifted in order to cope, and where transformational power is still available through, finally, an adult understanding of the past. With workshops and meditations, deep healing and emotional release intensifies at source level and the controlling patterns of behaviour, which formed as coping strategies, become unnecessary as self-authority grows within without guilt. Beginning at the first step towards self-healing, this book alternately informs and inspires as it reinstates self-positivity to its rightful core, lifting the heart to bask, at last, in the sunshine of unconditional self-love. "This eloquently written and succinctly crafted book has the potential to heal many people - not just another run-of-the-mill self-help offering, this one comes straight from the heart of compassion and wisdom. I recommend it highly." Barefoot Doctor
You began to read these words. What can it bring you? Have you ever driven for half an hour-from home to work or between any two points-and not remembered much of what you saw? Many of us go through most of our lives like that. But others actually see, perceive, understand, and then share life's joys or sorrows with others. Life can be so touching, so serious, but it can also be so funny and full of joy. What is our existence in this world? For most of us, it is a struggle for survival in a fragile way of life. Then arise the desires for wealth, importance in society, and entertainment. But does the life given to us not expect mental growth and personality development, the caring for others or public service, also stewardship of nature-and can we not enjoy all the beauty in art, culture, and nature around us? The following stories are offered to you, the reader, to let you pause and perceive, to touch your human sensitivity and understanding-and also to bring you joy, to simply entertain you. So, please, proceed! Select titles from the table of contents and begin reading these stories. When you are done, hopefully you will feel enriched-and, maybe, you will begin to perceive more stories in your own life. A clear vision of reality renders the stories colorful and lively-but deep empathy renders them personally meaningful. Primarily based on human sensibility, the stories are variously romantic, funny, or serious and are written at times with a smiling, at times with a crying face.
The Riddle In the Mirror is a personal account of a healing journey through experiencing the conflicting Apartheid era in South Africa during the authors childhood. The difficulties she experienced challenged a deeper insight into spiritual awareness that supported her path in search for healing. This story is everyones story, as we all experience difficulties that challenge us to evolve. The Riddle in the Mirror is an essential map on our healing journey. It shifts our focus, from struggling with repetitive behaviour patterns that keep wounds alive in us and our children, towards psychological and spiritual growth instead. It connects the processes of healing to archetypal principles that illustrate how our personal healing contributes to the healing of humanity. We identify our life challenges as healing opportunities by looking at life as a mirror that reflects a spiritual truth recognizable beneath our socially conditioned secular interpretations and assumptions of experiences. We recognize how our personal story relates to our cultural and ancestral stories as a metaphor for collective healing of the whole world, through our personal participation by waking up to our own spiritual consciousness.

A Journey through Knowledge: Festschrift in Honour of Hortensia Pârlog is a collection of articles dedicated to one of the best known Romanian university teachers and linguists, both in her home country and well beyond its borders. The heterogenous material (both in terms of the range of issues tackled and in terms of the approaches adopted by the authors) in the three sections of the volume finds itself a common denominator in the idea of “traveling” and “journey”, around which they are organized. In the first section, Traveling across Identities and Emotions, Pia Brînzeu touches upon some identity issues, in dealing with a form of subversion in Coz Shakespeare, by Marin Sorescu; Jaques Ramel argues against the opinion that Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Night Dream was written to be performed as an epithalamium during wedding ceremonies; Adolphe Haberer brings to the fore the non-hero features of the main character in Virginia Woolf’s Jacob’s Room; Liliane Louvel writes about the mirror in literary texts, insisting on its potential to send back graphic reflections onto these texts; and Maurizio Gotti discusses definitional criteria, i.e., the principles according to which a term should be defined. In section two, Traveling in Time and Space, Slávka Tomaščíková speaks about the status, functions and characteristics of media narrative discourse during the last decade; Aleksandra Kedzierska follows and characterizes various types of journeys in Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, highlighting their significance for celebration; Alberto Lázaro traces the changes that medieval stories, abundant in sexual references and instances of adultery, have suffered to meet the publication requirements during Franco’s regime in Spain; Stephen Tapscott focuses on the relationship between contemporary American poets’ lyric and previously written works (especially Modernist); while Fernando Galván examines a number of literary texts centering on cities that have been dreamed of or imagined by various writers, to illustrate decay, deconstruction and regeneration. The third section, Traveling between Languages and Cultures, opens with Smiljana Komar’s account of the translation of some frequent English discourse markers into Slovene and continues with Loredana Pungă’s illustration of the issue of loss and gain in translation. Irma Taavitsainen and Päivi Pahta highlight the functions of the English politeness marker please, pliis in Finnish, and investigate whether and how its meanings have changed when it has been adopted into the host language. Lachlan Mackenzie’s contribution rounds off the volume with some suggestions on how recent changes in the English language should be taken into consideration when teachers of English evaluate the linguistic performance of their students.
The Abduction Prince Aiden and Princess Ariana were busy making preparations to celebrate the wonder of their first anniversary. The year had flown by, fulfilling their every dream. Aiden had adapted well to the expectations and demands of royalty, along with fatherhood. Angus, two months old, was the pride and joy of the monarchy. The marriage and parenthood brought out the softer side of the blacksmith. His son looked much like him and he held his legacy as often as possible. Princess Camille loved being a first time aunt, spending as much time as she could with Ariana and the baby. The king and Gideon reflected their approval, but usually at a distance. Aiden had relocated his blacksmith trade inside the perimeter of the castle walls, training his two replacements, while using the forge from time to time, to satisfy a more creative nature. His travels had shown him a wide array of artistic applications for his craft and a use that had yet to be satisfied in the kingdom. Aiden designed plates, bowls, mugs and a variety of hand tools, most of which were given away after fulfilling the needs of the royal family. Surprisingly, hed given his cottage to a village family, whose child had told the best story at one of his weekly gatherings. The prince had become a farmer, as well, having recently harvested his first crop of corn. Hed dried kernels for the evenings anniversary festivities in the courtyard. It would be his first presentation of pop corn since his return from the quest. He could hardly wait to see the reaction his new treat would have on the children and the prince planned to hand kernels out to the villagers for the next years planting. Times were good and spirits high, in the realm, where the future looked promising for all. King Darian commissioned the kingdoms first ship. The vessel was built of the finest wood, with help from the Egyptian carpenters. It was a beauty to behold, equal in size to the Argo and the ship would open the island up to trade with countries in the inland sea. Jib supervised the raising of the ship and became the kingdoms first captain, through kings decree. The ship was christened the Phoenix, to honor Aidens quest and his daughters royal marriage. It was the first of six vessels commissioned by the king, with shipbuilding and global trade escalating the rapid growth of the small, inadequate anchorage. Scota sailed back to Egypt aboard the Phoenix on its maiden voyage at her fathers request and having lost any other reason to stay. Everything changed for her with the emotional loss of her husband at the hands of the Nordics. The princess carried the phoenix feather on the return to her homeland, fulfilling Aidens commitment to Queen Nefertiti. King Darian opened her old settlement up for villagers to recolonize and also began construction of a larger seaport capable of handling the increased demands of the realm. The new harbors location was near the mouth of a small river, less than a mile from the castle. While plans for the anniversary celebration were being finalized, Aiden went to the gatehouse to pay the wizard a visit. He hadnt seen Edric since just after his son was born. He took dried corn kernels, from the crop the wizard had helped him plant, to show the magician some of his own magic. Edric hadnt been as preoccupied with his magic mirror since the quest had concluded, spending much of his time grooming his own garden. When there was no answer at the door, the prince walked to the backside of the gatehouse, finding the wizard clipping roses from his prized bushes.
A collection of poetic and prosaic variations on the theme of identity and self-worth, Objects in Mirror Are Closer than They Appear chronicles the author's journey through adolescence, and more importantly, her own mind. The tone of the pieces ranges from therapeutic journal to expository essay as the author edges closer to the resolution of her problems on paper and begins to find her way back through a labyrinth of her own creation.
“I look in the mirror and what do I see? The vision unravels of what is to be. The shell of a woman whose life has been taken away What does it mean to look forward to a new day? Take me away from the life that I lead All I feel is the need to bleed The desire to see red is like hunger or greed. Unzip my skin and set my heart free Is there such a thing as a happy me? Or carrying this burden will I always be?” From fleeing for her life from a crazed boyfriend, to an accidental overdose of prescribed medications; and not to mention a life threatening cutting disorder and eight stays in mental institutions, Tina has overcome monumental obstacles to get to where she is now. Her goal with this book is to inspire, and to help others with Bipolar Disorder realize each has different challenges, but all can be managed with the proper amount of drive, persistence and desire to do so. In this book, her poetry tells the traumatic story of her battle back to reality from her living hell with all the raw emotion she was feeling along the way. Tina opens her heart and soul and pours it out before you in these pages through her intense, gut wrenching poems. You will follow Tina on her journey as she describes to you, through her poetry, what it took to return to reality. Through them you get close insight into how the Bipolar mind works, as it goes from extreme agitation to complete hopelessness and then to a manic euphoria.
