A new description of LIFE as the PROCESS of the RELEASE of SPIRIT from Matter. Accumulating Spirit makes the SELF and SOUL, uniquely modulated by Teilhard de Chardin's recognized evolutionary gift to humans, only, that reflects the released Spirit=Knowledge back onto itself, influencing thoughts and the Will. This PROCESS cumulatively develops the PERSON, which is much more than the continuation of LIFE passed on by biological reproduction. Death returns the released SOUL to de Chardin's 'divine milieu' = God. LIFE is a directional process, defining the passage of Time. Numerous prior thought leaders have presented consistent positions on these subjects, recognizing the ONENESS of all that is, but not before now seeing that LIFE and Person-hood are different entities. This obviously has behavioral implications in many social and spiritual interactions. Join the discussion!

Erin's Gift: Never Drive Faster than your Guardian Angel can Fly

When Luke and RoseMarie Lawrence welcomed their son Jared into the world in 1989, they looked forward to raising their baby and his big sister Erin as a family. However, RoseMarie soon learned the devastating news that she had an extremely rare and deadly stomach cancer. What no one knew is that it is hereditary. Sixteen years after RoseMarie passed away, Erin developed the same deadly disease.

With singular determination, Luke Lawrence pushed the medical system for answers and learned there is a genetic test for Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer (HDGC). Using Erin’s DNA, the test confirmed the diagnosis: Jared had a 67 percent chance of developing the cancer. At age 18, he became the youngest person known to undergo a gastrectomy; the removal of his stomach.

This poignant memoir traces the journey of one family through the harrowing but inspiring experience of a hereditary incurable cancer. Erin’s caring and courage in her final months motivated a CFL football team to reach for their dream and win the Grey Cup. Her teddy bear collection also inspired a charity that has given over 40,000 teddy bears to hospitalized children in Saskatchewan, Canada. Erin’s Gift will bring you to tears but it will also warm your heart with its legacy of love, caring and hope for the future.

“We hope that continued research in this area will someday develop a test to diagnose this disease in its earliest stages. In doing so, it would help in the prevention of unnecessary prophylactic gastrectomies.”

Abdication: God Steps Down for Good

Monotheism, as known in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, seems to have reached a dead end from which no more generous view of humanity can be expected. Its view of man as a craven, fallen sinner in need of salvation and redemption by a heavenly father is insufficient to prevent man from destroying himself and endangering the planet. The suicide-bomber-with-nuclear-bomb ready to blow the planet to hell and kingdom come, is one image of this failure. Another is the end-times anticipator of apocalypse, rapture, judgment day, and a new heaven and earth. Ubiquitous holy wars are a third. On a planet where 1,750 million or more years of good living should lie before us, we have managed to fashion deadly scenarios of immediate crisis and death, and then expected God to intervene and save us. It’s been our game all along. We must clean up our own messes. God, with our thanks, should be allowed to abdicate, and retire from anthropoid form back into the physical world. Here, now, at the beginning of human history, humanity, with the help of science, needs to reinvent itself, reassess the meaning of life, and reconfigure its relationship to God.

America Sold

A politically powerful, organized group of thieves have conned people out of the deeds for their homes and land. This is occurring in Virginia and North Carolina and very likely happening throughout the United States of America. Amazingly, this is part of a plot between liberals and Muslims to take any Christian influence out of America and to control the country by taking ownership of land, homes, and buildings; it involves lawyers, judges, land surveyors, real estate agents, and ordinary people. Contrary to what some people are being told about their land and real estate, there is no redeeding program being run by the government. If you sell your deed, it may mean that you have sold your land and house. If this concerns you, read this book to find out how this conspiracy works and what you can do about it!

Life - The Epic Story of Our Mitochondria: How the original probiotic dictates your health, illness, ageing, and even life itself

Why do we age? Why does cancer develop? What’s the connection between heart failure and Alzheimer’s disease, or infertility and hearing loss? Can we extend lifespan, and if so, how? What is the Exercise Paradox? Why do antioxidant supplements sometimes do more harm than good?

Many will be amazed to learn that all these questions, and many more, can be answered by a single point of discussion—mitochondria and bioenergetics. This legendary saga began over two billion years ago, when one bacterium entered another without being digested, ultimately creating the first mitochondrion.

Since then, for life to exist beyond single-celled bacteria, it’s the mitochondria that are responsible for this life-giving energy. Yet, current research has also revealed a dark side; many seemingly unconnected degenerative diseases have their roots in dysfunctional mitochondria. Modern research, however, has also endowed us with the knowledge on how to optimize its function, which is of critical importance to our health and longevity. By reading this book, you are about to dive into this epic story, and learn how to add years to your life, and life to your years.

What Causes Cancer?: What We Know and What it Means

Dr. Anthony B. Miller has written What Causes Cancer: What We Know and What It Means for a broad general audience, but it is also intended for those who have already been diagnosed with cancer, as well as for their families and friends. Dr. Miller’s central premise is that a great deal more is known about the prevention of cancer than most of us realize.

In most of the countries of the Western world, cancer will affect one in three persons. Although it is not yet possible to tell which of us is the one of those three, all will benefit by acting upon the knowledge presented herein.

What Causes Cancer offers readers a clear and concise overview of the main types of cancer, summarizing data gathered over the history of cancer research from across the globe.

Dr. Frances Robertson is confident, beautiful, single, independent and going on 40.

When family circumstances beyond her control force her to temporarily suspend her career and her great lifestyle in Vancouver, to return to her childhood home in England, she finds herself resentful and apprehensive about spending 6 months in the city she had thought she’d left for good. Staying in her cousin’s flat, Frankie takes on an interim position at the local hospital to make ends meet while she is occupied with clearing out the home of her father, a man who never showed her any love. The thankless task weighs heavily on her mind – until she is thrust into working with Jack at the hospital. Gorgeous, young, and virile, Jack harbours a painful past and insecurities under that handsome exterior. The sparks fly and Frankie soon finds herself teaching Jack a thing or two in the bedroom.

The intense sexual heat between Frankie and Jack soon turns into more, and both simultaneously worry about and pretend to ignore the looming date for her return to Vancouver. The seemingly perfect, steamy romance becomes strained as neither wants to admit their feelings or face reality. Hot and torrid, their passion flares and tensions mount as Frankie and Jack have to decide whether love will be enough to heal their bruises.

Some Observations of the Human Kind: A Memoir

By writing this book, it was my intention to present anecdotal events occurring on a daily basis which play a role in shaping our world. Ideas and scenarios presented may be well known and expounded to us many times by different authors. Hopefully, Some Observations of the Human Kind is a useful reference for the reader that merges so many of these important ideas into one tidy, little book of wisdom.

Referring to actual examples, I have shown that the world in which we live can be shaped by our own destiny and personality. We are individuals with our very own character, unique in this sense . With no one else being the same, our own special brand of uniqueness can be brought to the fore creating and contributing to humanity and society as a whole. What we are internally, and what we do outwardly, may be two different things. By this I mean that what we do is greatly influenced by the way we have been weaned from birth, and most of us do almost exactly the same as our parents taught us. Our parents may or may not have been correct; in fact, they themselves most likely carried on as their parents taught them. This is not intended to diminish the lessons offered by parents who have our best interest at heart. Instead, this book has stressed the importance of you as an individual! The trick is realizing this, and making the necessary changes in your life.

The Big Cookie Proposition: Insights and Inspiration for a Generous New You

It’s filled with insights, ideas, illustrations, and personal stories gleaned from ordinary people of all walks of life.
