A Story of Crime, Punishment, and Love
Author: Emili LeBlanc
Publisher: Balboa Press
View: 9014Bondage and imprisonment start in the mind. However, our healing and freedom also, start in the mind. Our intention to be free and happy is set in the heart and carried out by the mind and with faith. We simply need to accept the invitation. God built us perfectly and beautifully and gave us many powerful gifts. These gifts are not visible to the naked eye. These gifts are built in. They are natural and intrinsic and it is imperative that we find them and use them. These gifts are when we take our power back from wherever the place was we left it, or whoever we gave it to; places like addictions, poor decision making or in bad relationships with other people on any level. Dauntless A Story of Crime, Punishment, and Love was written to illustrate a journey of overcoming adversity.

Category: Literary Collections
View: 2955'Intellectual freedom depends on material things. Poetry depends on intellectual freedom. And women have always been poor...' In these two classic essays of feminist literature, Woolf argues passionately for women's intellectual freedom and their role in challenging the drive towards fascism and conflict. In A Room of One's Own she explores centuries of limitations placed on women, as well as celebrating the creative achievements of the women writers who overcame these obstacles. In this first history of women's writing, she describes the importance of education, financial independence, and equality of opportunity to creative freedom. Three Guineas was written under the threat of fascism and impending war. A radical articulation of Woolf's pacifist politics, it investigates the causes of gender inequalities and the ways in which women's historic outsider position make them crucial in the prevention of war. Both these works started life as talks to groups of young women, and their engaging wit and informality establish Woolf as one of the twentieth-century's greatest essayists. Their arguments continue to reverberate in feminist discourse to this day. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

View: 1976Guiding Daniel details the meteoric rise and ultimate self-destruction of an American icon. It is at heart a murder mystery, but it is also an examination of America's somewhat dark obsession with celebrity. In a culture where fame is accepted as a pronouncement rather than achievment, celebrities provide the reality through which adoring fans live a virtual life. Ultimately, disgrace and downfall are themes that familiarize celebrities in a relatable way. We see that they too, are as flawed and human as the rest of us. Danny Cagle is a gifted poet and musician whose star is on the rise. When his wife Laura goes missing he must balance a burgeoning career, the care of his one-year old son and a search for answers to Laura's disappearance. Predictably, as his fame increases, so does his drug usage, leading him into the kind of self-destruction that so emphatically defines an American icon. Guiding Daniel is a story of creative success, revenge, and a fall from grace. It defines graphically Dostoevsky's contention that: "As long as man remains free he strives for nothing so incessantly and so painfully as to find someone to worship." Guiding Daniel has all the elements to engage the reader. It has a believable plot progression that provides clues, twists and a culprit whose motives evolve over the course of the story, and finally, a conclusive resolution.

The Fourth Way of Gurdjieff
Author: Jeanne De Salzmann
Publisher: Shambhala Publications
View: 8583As the closest pupil of the charismatic spiritual master G. I. Gurdjieff (1866–1949), Jeanne de Salzmann was charged with carrying on his teachings of spiritual transformation. Known as the Fourth Way or "the Work," Gurdjieff’s system was based on teachings of the East that he adapted for modern life in the West. Now, some twenty years after de Salzmann's death, the notebooks that she filled with her insights over a forty-year period (and intended to publish) have been translated and edited by a small group of her family and followers. The result is this long-awaited guide to Gurdjieff's teaching, describing the routes to be traveled and the landmarks encountered along the way. Organized according to themes, the chapters touch on all the important concepts and practices of the Work, including: · awakening from the sleep of identification with the ordinary level of being · self-observation and self-remembering · conscious effort and voluntary suffering · understanding symbolic concepts like the Enneagram · the Gurdjieff Movements, bodily exercises that provide training in Presence and the awareness of subtle energies · the necessity of a "school," meaning the collective practice of the teaching in a group Madame de Salzmann brings to the Work her own strong, direct language and personal journey in learning to live that knowledge of a higher level of being, which, she insists, "you have to see for yourself" on a level beyond theory and concept. De Salzmann consistently refused to discuss the teaching in terms of ideas, for this Fourth Way is to be experienced, not simply thought or believed.
