It has become impossible to resolve the many serious problems we face in America. My token efforts in this book details the issues as I see them.  Whether you agree with me or not, at least give me the credit for devoting the last twenty years of my life trying to make sense out of it all and proposing solutions. I did not do it for financial gain but as an American who reveres our heritage and hopes we can find a way to pull together and once again be that shining city on the hill.

Know yourself ? the real you within your layers of thinking.
The unknown potential which exists in each of us lies in our Unconscious-mind. As a medical doctor and plastic surgeon. I had observed the way a patient?s health and well-being was influenced by the thoughts they held in their mind, especially their Subconscious and the deeper levels of that. Appreciation of Surgical results can be closely affected by the Self Image Body healing is run from the Unconscious mind. But how we feel about results is influences from the Subconscious.

Later when I retired from surgery and retrained as an artist I was given skilled help for a couple of years to explore in deeper levels of Consciousness. I had the intuitive desire to know who I really was ? beyond the family identity I was born with. I had found in childhood the ways knowing could just arrive, and sought the source when given the opportunity.

The Subconscious is a working part of our everyday life and we use it all the time without knowing.

We are more influenced from the Unconscious mind than we may realise. We each Have these 4 basic levels in our system which we explore through the book.

Our real identity and meaning is to be found in these deeper levels of Consciousness hidden away from the world. If you want to know more of your own meaning, then look within your Self. For it is all there, stored in the Unconscious levels of your mind."
James Polson was once a skeptic who believed that God, heaven, and hell did not likely exist outside of his imagination. He was satisfied with his views until he was involved in a car accident that forced the realization that death can occur at any time. Was he wrong about heaven and hell?

Included are fundamentals of Christian life as well as other insights that guide believers to take advantage of the blessings that only God can provide.<br>

His story was destined to be triumphant with a happily-ever-after ending.</p>

Tristan had always relied on the sounds of his guitar to bring him solace when he faltered. But now, a constant and terrifying buzzing in his ears drowns out its joyful melodies, and he spirals to the edge. Jumping off the bridge would be a quiet relief. But Tristan has a bit of good fortune remaining at the bottom of his bucket of life&rsquo;s blessings&mdash;five extraordinary women surround him. Each is magnificent in her own way, and together they refuse to let Tristan&rsquo;s music die. Only one question remains: Can they reach him in time?</p>"
"On an abandoned beach on the Southern California Coast near midnight, Everett Durant reaches into the pockets of his jeans as he approaches the water?s edge. He unburdens himself of all personal belongings as he prepares to commit suicide by drowning but fails. During his unsuccessful drowning, Everett experiences the appurtenance of a Guardian Angel, of sorts. When he wakes, he sees only the impression of a sand angel remaining where he washed ashore.

He soon learns that a young girl either jumped or fell from the cliffs above and suffered and died not so long ago. This realization encourages the washed-up emo-songwriter to honor her memory in a constructive way, and that sets the saga in motion. Everett deeply connects with those living in society?s underbelly as he gives them a voice through a collection of post-beat poetry.

Soon, a quick fifteen minutes of fame lead him into the path of Beatrice Rutherford, otherwise known as ?the heiress.? With the prompting of the heiress, Everett moves deeper into the disorienting seas of cultural conformity, mass socialization, and geopolitical control, while championing the role of an inspired individualism. He could never have imagined that this incredible postmodern journey would begin with a dark night of the soul on an abandoned beach."

Throughout her childhood and youth, her mother convinced her that love and marriage could never be possible for her. So what opportunities were there for a tall, fat, ugly female with the world in turmoil around her as she tried to survive the Lebanese Civil War? She had to create her own opportunities.</P>

<P>In Sydney, five years later, with her two infant sons, she deserted her violent husband to become a single mother on welfare. The welfare system paid for the removal of her facial moles turning the ?ugly duckling? into a ?beautiful swan.?</P>

<P>Aged forty-five years, after a ?singles without partners? party, she was seduced by a tall handsome lover who taught her Western culture lovemaking, where women are allowed to enjoy sex. She became belatedly addicted to it.</P>

<P>During the ensuing five years, she climbed up the social ladder and married a prominent recent widower to secure her social and financial standing. But her past life of guilt and shame caught up with her.</P>

Rediscover your spirituality from our diverse and extensive Religion shelf.

This book, ?About The Holy Spirit, ? is a resource for anyone truly interested in whether the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a valid, current Biblical, manifestation that should be experienced by all Christian believers today. It shows scripturally how one is given the gift of the Holy Spirit when born again, which Jesus described as being ?born of the Spirit? (John 3:7-8). The Holy Spirit is deeply involved in the salvation process, therefore, every believer has the potential for the operation of all the gifts of the Spirit immediately upon being saved, and should walk and live in the Spirit thereafter (Galatians 5:23). Speaking in tongues is one of the nine gifts of the Spirit that are given to every believer. ?Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good? (1 CO 12:7 NIV).
"<p>When Jesus called his first disciples, he asked them, ?What are you looking for?? Jesus knew that we are all searching for something: a relationship with God; a grace-filled way of living; and the answers to life?s most important questions such as ?Who am I?? Too often we seek those answers in the wrong places. We can search the world and come up empty only to find that what we were seeking was inside of us all along.</p>

In a part-spiritual autobiography and part-guided meditation, certified spiritual director Mark Ekstrom invites believers to join him on a journey of self-discovery and faith while offering insight into his spiritual ups and downs, doubts, wonderings, and the growth that has brought him to where he is today. Organized as a thirty-day pilgrimage with daily meditations, spiritual seekers are guided through reflection questions, scripture readings, spiritual disciplines, and prayer in order to experience God?s love and grace more fully, foster a deeper spirituality, and continue to build a strong personal relationship with God.</p>

<p>Experiencing Grace leads believers on an introspective thirty-day journey to encourage an awareness of God not as a theological concept, but as a transforming relationship."

Absorb vibrant cultures and perspectives from our collection of prose and rhymes.

"In the beginning, bereshith, the Genesis text begins,
God created heaven, earth, and many other things.

The world was dark, shapeless, with no life or light,
God said ?Let?s have light,? so made day and night.

Water, water everywhere, in heaven and down below,
God sorted into clouds and rain, sea, lakes and snow.

Earth was next on the agenda, of God?s creative plan,
He filled it with plants, trees, fish, animals, birds, man.

He made stars, sun and moon, seasons hot and cold,
?Be fruitful and multiply? all creatures were told.

Scholars claim that one third of the bible is poetry, more easily recognized in Hebrew than most English versions. 

In a poetic interpretation of the entire bible inspired by a conversation with God in 2010, Rob Bellingham shares a collection of rhyming couplets intended to be theologically sensitive regarding both gender and doctrine.

Bible in Verse is a volume of inspirational rhyming couplets that offers a creative, succinct, and memorable look at a very familiar text."

It is a compilation of Poetry and Prose assembled over a few years.  The poems are generally written as a response to News and Views of the day.  The Prose are a few  reminiscences of his life and activities.
This will do better.  Wait and see, he says."

	Be prepared to be amused by the odd ways of the characters here portrayed in the first section of the book devoted to Limericks.

	Be prepared to feel sympathy for their mishaps and trials.

	But especially be prepared  to be shocked by their goings-on and shenanigans - the forger, the glutton, the cheat, the drunkard, the proud, the greedy, the slothful, the unfaithful, the exhibitionist, the sex-mad, the dominatrix, the cougar, the transsexual, the transvestite, the masochist, the homosexual and many more. 
	However also enjoy the more gentle humour of the later lengthier works set both in the UK and Australia which include homage to the Australian love of sport and the beach as well as a sad childhood tale."
Inspired by her former pastor, Robert (Bob) Greene, who closed church services with beautifully prepared prayers, Melissa began to compose her own prayers for a church bible study group.
