Book Excerpt :

There is a part of us which neither listens to the voice of reason nor submit easily to social/moral conventions. Like a child, it relentlessly pursues whatever catches its fancy and keeps playing with fire. It can either help us actualize our heroic potential or put us on the road to self-destruction. Perhaps the key to this difference lies in what we do with our emotional/psychic wounds which are a necessary part of the growth process. The book explores the inner landscape of this part of our psyche through the mythological figures of Balarama, Duryodhana and Bhima. It also examines the present day context of human existence which has ironically enhanced both our prowess and helplessness and thereby pushed this part of ourselves into our psychic/social underbelly.

Book Short Summary:

The Mystique of Enlightenment is the most straightforward work ever written about enlightenment. It is a fresh, unique, priceless companion for all those on the path of self-discovery. We learn that Enlightenment might be a truth that many people seek, but for U.G. Krishnamurti, it is just a natural state. He makes it very clear that there is nothing like ecstatic enlightenment. It is just a biological phenomenon that occurs when we are entirely free of culture, conditioning, religious opinions, and intellect. The work tells the story of a man who reveals how he liberated himself clearly and directly.

Book Short Summary:

The first book in Laura Bradford’s debut Jenkins & Burns mystery series! The Jersey Shore has always been known for warm sand, lively boardwalks, and the promise of carefree summer days. This season the small scenic town of Ocean Point, New Jersey, is not nearly as carefree as tourists would hope. The discovery of the body of a young woman is the first in a string of seemingly random and senseless murders, murders connected only by a warning from the same boardwalk fortune-teller. It’s a crisis that puts local detective Mitch Burns on edge, and his job in jeopardy. It’s up to him to solve the crimes and protect the livelihood of the town, a livelihood that relies almost entirely on tourists. With the help of newly hired local reporter Elise Jenkins, the two step out to discover who the killer is, before another body is found. This book was originally published under the title Jury of One.

Musaicum Books present to you the collected works of U. G. Krishnamurti: The Mystique of Enlightenment Courage to Stand Alone Mind is a Myth No Way Out Thought is Your Enemy The Natural State Uppaluri Gopala Krishnamurti (1918-2007), better known as U.G., was an Indian speaker who questioned the state of enlightenment as a real thing. Instead of using the word "enlightenment", he used "calamity" and "natural state" to describe an event in his life. He claimed that the return to the natural state is a rare, a causal, biological occurrence, an event which he referred to in his own life as "the calamity". Because of this, he discouraged people from pursuing the "natural state" as a spiritual goal. He rejected the very basis of thought and in doing so negated all systems of thought and knowledge. Hence he explained his assertions were experiential and not speculative – "Tell them that there is nothing to understand."

Book Short Summary:

What VEHICLE did we climb aboard that carried us so far from our cultural roots? How did the vast changes to society, our social framework and our relationships come about? Most importantly we must ask ourselves, "How could we become so divided? Or are we?" The answers we hear in the public discourse are wholly inadequate to address the scope of the changes. Could anyone in 1990 expected that ABC, NBC, or CBN would identify 53 Genders or that public policy, law and educational principles would be altered to grant special rights to these created genders? Could we have envisioned cities and businesses being destroyed by people claiming to be supportive of the people affected? Many feel the world has been turned upside down; the law is silent with regard to some egregious acts while being openly hostile to seemingly innocent citizens expressing their right of free speech. We have heard over and over these six powerful words: How did our nation get here? This book is designed to explain EXACTLY how we got here. You will become thoroughly aware of the plan that was set in motion, who designed it, when it began and the mechanisms used to move us to their desired end and, finally, where it will take us. You will discover that the separation of Americans by race or wealth or gender is a myth and meet the groups responsible for those myths. After reading The Blueprint for Two Americas, every news report, school board issue or city council agenda will be viewed with the perspective of the Humanist Manifestos in mind. You will be awakened to the destruction that this plan has wrought. Just as a building has a set of blueprints that direct each specialty worker to their part in bringing about the finished product, this social re-engineering has a set of blueprints, and the new society it envisions is nearly complete. This book reveals THE BLUEPRINT FOR THE TWO AMERICAS.

Book Short Summary:

Phrases quotes and sayings have influenced us for centuries. Our thoughts and actions are a result of what we have heard and our subsequent reactions to them. What we are taught and how we retain and exhibit that information results in how we perceive life and how we are perceived throughout life. I have always appreciated a succinct, meaningful phrase that could positively be applied to specific areas of life or to life in general. Some phrases and quotes have stayed with me throughout my lifetime and have shaped my thoughts and actions as I tried to stay true to their meaning. Some phrases seem to be a given, such as All men are created equal, five words from Thomas Jefferson as he began the Declaration of Independence, which helped shape the beginning of a new nation. Another American president, John Kennedy, told us, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." Before we entered WWII, Franklin Roosevelt gave us We have nothing to fear but fear itself. Descartes, the famous French philosopher and mathematician told us, I think, therefore I am. Martin Luther Kings famous speech gave us the historic words I have a dream. These words were spoken years ago but remain just as vital today as they were then. Socrates was a treasure trove of meaningful quotations such as, An unexamined life is not worth living, Know thyself, and my favorite quote from Socrates, He who is not content with what he has, would not be content with what he would like to have. Former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt said, Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people. However inspirational and encouraging these and other quotes may be, I feel they fell on deaf ears. I have a great concern on the negative way people interact and treat one another on a daily basis. I am not referring to the major offenses such as murderers, assaults, and sexual predation. I think that everyday encounters one has with a complete stranger, and often a person one is friendly with, have deteriorated. Often you see and hear one person verbally abusing and degrading another in everyday conversation, and the derogatory comments are returned as if expected. This interaction is not only committed with strangers but is commonplace with friends as a normal manner of corresponding with one another. There is a lot of rude behavior and certainly no acceptance given to other persons choices in life. There is no respect or kindness. I see a culture of selfishness, self-indulgence, a self-sense of importance, and unjustified expectations. There is no mutual respect for one another, no ethics, and virtually no outward morality. This behavior is extended to strangers as well. People say this is the new norm. I think notmore like a disappointing societal regression. This is a misstep in our culture that must be addressed and corrected so we may fully continue on our moral evolutionary path. I have assembled a few quotations of my own that are a result of my personal contemplation and experience. My writings are the personal inference of my own thoughts. Like all quotes, phrases, or songs, my words may have no effect on you, or they may cause you to think of what is said or even cause you to change an attitude or belief in a different positive direction. Hopefully my thoughts and quotations will have a positive impact.

Book Short Summary:

In the tradition of The Sociopath Next Door, clinical psychologist Joseph Burgo’s The Narcissist You Know is a “clear, easily digestible” (Kirkus Reviews) guide to help you identify, disarm, and coexist with extreme narcissists. In today’s social media and selfie-obsessed culture, we are living in an age of narcissism—and a society that often celebrates this potentially harmful trait rather than understanding it as a psychological disorder. Scientists are beginning to learn that narcissism exists on a spectrum—much like autism—and most of us exhibit some mild narcissistic tendencies. But one in twenty people fall into a category the author refers to as Extreme Narcissism, in which these self-absorbed characteristics result in destructive behavior that harms not only the individual but everyone around them, including friends, family, and coworkers. With more than thirty years of experience studying personality disorders and treating extreme narcissists, Dr. Joseph Burgo has developed a useful guidebook to help you “spot narcissists out there in the wild” (Glamour) and then understand and manage the narcissistic personalities in your own life. Relying on detailed profiles, vignettes from the author’s practice, and celebrity biographies, The Narcissist You Know offers easy-to-understand tools and solutions you can use to defuse hostile situations and survive assaults on your self-esteem should you ever find yourself in an extreme narcissist’s orbit.

Book Short Summary:

All parents want their daughters to marry godly young men. But which qualities, specifically, should they be looking for? What will you say when that certain young man sits down in your living room, sweaty-palmed and tongue-tied, and asks your permission to marry your daughter? What criteria should he meet before the two of them join together for life? What He Must Be... If He Wants to Marry My Daughter outlines ten qualities parents should look for in a son-in-law, including trustworthiness, a willingness to lead his family, an understanding of his wife's role, and various spiritual leadership qualities. Author Voddie Baucham follows up on his popular book Family Driven Faith with this compelling apologetic of biblical manhood. By studying the principles outlined in his book, parents who want their daughter to marry a godly man-as well as those who want their sons to become godly men-will be well equipped to help their children look for and develop these God-honoring qualities.

Book Short Summary:

What if your path to a more successful, healthy, and satisfying life is actually not about you? Enough About Me equips you with practical tools to find meaning and compassion in even the smallest of everyday choices. When his father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, Richard Lui made a tough decision. The award-winning news anchor decided to set aside his growing career to care for his family.

From survivors of terrorist attacks to victims of racial strife, Lui shares the lessons he learned from those who rose above the fray to be helpful, self-sacrificing, and generous in the face of monumental tragedy and loss. Lui shares practical tips, tools, and mnemonics learned along the way to help shift the way we think and live, including: Selfless decision methods and practices for work, home, relationships, and community Studies and research that show the personal benefits of being selfless The lasting impact of sharing your story Practical, bite-sized ways to be more engaging and inclusive in your day-to-day life How to train our decision-making muscles to choose others over ourselves Choice by choice, step by step, the path to a more satisfying and fulfilling journey is right here in the people around us.

Book Short Summary:

George Washington may be the most famous American who ever lived, and certainly is one of the most admired. While surrounded by myths, it is no myth that the man who led Americans’ fight for independence and whose two terms in office largely defined the presidency was the most highly respected individual among a generation of formidable personalities. This record hints at an enigmatic perfection; however, Washington was a flesh-and-blood man. In First and Always, celebrated historian Peter Henriques illuminates Washington’s life, more fully explicating his character and his achievements. Arranged thematically, the book’s chapters focus on important and controversial issues, achieving a depth not possible in a traditional biography. First and Always examines factors that coalesced to make Washington such a remarkable and admirable leader, while also chronicling how Washington mistreated some of his enslaved workers, engaged in extreme partisanship, and responded with excessive sensitivity to criticism. Henriques portrays a Washington deeply ambitious and always hungry for public adoration, even as he disclaimed such desires. In its account of an amazing life, First and Always shows how, despite profound flaws, George Washington nevertheless deserves to rank as the nation's most consequential leader, without whom the American experiment in republican government would have died in infancy.

Book Short Summary:

5200 years long interval Srimad Bhagavad Gita in its authentic and everlasting exposition. Yatharth Geeta – The Geeta in its True Perspective Shreemad Bhagwad Geeta - Science of Religion for Mankind What were the inner feelings and emotions of Shri Krishn when he preached the Geeta? All inner feelings cannot be expressed in words. Some can be told, some are expressed through the body language, and the rest are to be realised which can only be understood by a seeker through experiences. Only after attaining the state which Shri Krishn had been to, an accomplished teacher knows what Geeta says. He simply does not reiterate verses of the Geeta but, in fact, gives experiences to the inner feelings of the Geeta. This is possible because he sees the same picture which was there when Shri Krishn preached the Geeta. He therefore, sees the real meaning, can show it to us, can evoke the inner feelings and would lead us on the path of enlightenment. Rev. Shri Paramhansji Mahraj was also an enlightened teacher of such a level and the compilation of his words and blessings to grasp the inner feelings of the Geeta itself is the 'Yatharth Geeta". – Swami Adgadanand

Book Short Summary:

There lies an astounding spiritual depth in the teachings of the Sufi Mystics. The Sufi Mysticism consists in endeavoring to reconcile the doctrines of all religions of the world through the philosophy of love. This piece of art is founded upon the teachings of the Sufi Mystics. The current problem of terrorism, in the name of Jihad, has blighted the lives of many people. This book will reveal the true meaning of Jihad, as the doctrine of Sufism accentuated on inner Jihad, which means the closing of one's heart to the inner enemies of retaliation, envy and infidelity. This book also covers the foremost topics like the mystery of love, the status of women in Sufism, science of transformation, management lessons in Sufism, relevance of the Spiritual Master, controlling the Nafs and, most significantly, the Fifteen Fundamentals of life. The book covers the teachings of Persian Mystic "Jalaluddin Muhammad Rumi" (in the world of Sufis, Rumi is the Emperor) and many other Sufi Mystics from the past. This book is a gift, an experience of the divine and therefore; it is recommended to be read periodically to reinforce the key messages of the Sufi Mystics in one's life. Remember, the path of spirituality is not easy for those who seek temporary happiness. It is a journey of hardship, and one must keep an enormous amount of patience and blind faith in the master's teachings to pursue permanent peace and happiness. Note: The author makes no claim to being either an Islamic Scholar or a Spiritual Master. The author is merely a seeker of love through the teachings of the Sufi Mystics.

Book Short Summary:

George Epstein was a mathematician, scientist, and poet. This mixture of experiences and passions came together to form the three-part poetry collection Day, Door, Soul. It presents a progressive visual journey moving from awakening through the portal and finally to divine soul transcendence, as written by a religious man with earthly connections. His collection is intended for those who are aware of the spiritual journey of life and for those who seek to unravel the mysteries of life through developing a deeper understanding of self. Epstein weaves imagery within his words to paint pictures that inspire and inform. Even through daily encounters, the greatness of life speaks in the mundane. Even a small ant on a beach has meaning. Globalism and humanity are linked to the individual good. Biblical and mythological images relate to the monotonous day by day. Epstein’s poetry asks us to face our ethical dealings, learn the art of balance in daily life, and ponder the impermanence of life as we journey from consciousness through the doorway to our soul.

The riveting firsthand account of World War II pilot Robert Morgan, his crew, and the legendary Memphis Belle—written with Ron Powers, cowriter of the #1 New York Times bestseller Flags of Our Fathers. A powerful chronicle of loyalty, love, and heroism under fire, this is the unforgettable memoir of a member of the Greatest Generation who fought in America’s greatest battles—and of the war one man waged both in and out of the skies. High-spirited, young Robert Morgan was transformed from a fast-living, privileged playboy who grew up hobnobbing with the Vanderbilts into a steel-nerved pilot forged in the cauldron of World War II’s most dangerous and desperate aerial encounters. This is the triumphant tale of that transformation—and of the airplane and crew that never failed to bring him back home.

The United States Constitution promised a More Perfect Union. It’s a shame no one bothered to write a more perfect Constitution—one that didn’t trigger more than two centuries of arguments about what the darn thing actually says. Until now. Perfection is at hand. A new, improved Constitution is here. And you are holding it. But first, some historical context: In the eighteenth century, a lawyer named James Madison gathered his friends in Philadelphia and, over four long months, wrote four short pages: the Constitution of the United States of America. Not bad. In the nineteenth century, a president named Abraham Lincoln freed an entire people from the flaws in that Constitution by signing the Emancipation Proclamation. Pretty impressive. And in the twentieth century, a doctor at the Bethesda Naval Hospital delivered a baby—but not just any baby. Because in the twenty-first century, that baby would become a man, that man would become a patriot, and that patriot would rescue a country . . . by single-handedly rewriting that Constitution. Why? We think of our Constitution as the painstakingly designed blueprint drawn up by, in Thomas Jefferson’s words, an “assembly of demigods” who laid the foundation for the sturdiest republic ever created. The truth is, it was no blueprint at all but an Etch A Sketch, a haphazard series of blunders, shaken clean and redrawn countless times during a summer of petty debates, drunken ramblings, and desperate compromise—as much the product of an “assembly of demigods” as a confederacy of dunces. No wonder George Washington wished it “had been made more perfect.” No wonder Benjamin Franklin stomached it only “with all its faults.” The Constitution they wrote is a hot mess. For starters, it doesn’t mention slavery, or democracy, or even Facebook; it plays favorites among the states; it has typos, smudges, and misspellings; and its Preamble, its most famous passage, was written by a man with a peg leg. Which, if you think about it, gives our Constitution hardly a leg to stand on. [Pause for laughter.] Now stop laughing. Because you hold in your hands no mere book, but the most important document of our time. Its creator, Daily Show writer Kevin Bleyer, paid every price, bore every burden, and saved every receipt in his quest to assure the salvation of our nation’s founding charter. He flew to Greece, the birthplace of democracy. He bused to Philly, the home of independence. He went toe-to-toe (face-to-face) with Scalia. He added nightly confabs with James Madison to his daily consultations with Jon Stewart. He tracked down not one but two John Hancocks—to make his version twice as official. He even read the Constitution of the United States. So prepare yourselves, fellow patriots, for the most significant literary event of the twenty-first, twentieth, nineteenth, and latter part of the eighteenth centuries. Me the People won’t just form a More Perfect Union. It will save America. Praise for Me the People “I would rather read a constitution written by Kevin Bleyer than by the sharpest minds in the country.”—Jon Stewart “Bleyer takes a red pencil to democracy’s most hallowed laundry list. . . . Uproarious and fascinating.”—Reader’s Digest “I knew James Madison. James Madison was a friend of mine. Mr. Bleyer, you are no James Madison. But you sure are a heck of a lot more fun.”—Pulitzer Prize–winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Team of Rivals

Book Short Summary:

Byron Zorn graduated first in his class at the prestigious Little Country Parish University. A brilliant mind, tireless researcher, and gifted speaker, Zorn aspired to serve God behind the pulpit of a large, hopefully high profile church someday. That was plan A. Then The Lord revealed plan B—assistant bishop of Holy Ground Miracle Gospel Tabernacle, a small black church in the all black South Park District. Though the position was non-salaried, and the flock had a way of making the job full time, Byron Zorn, a white man, accepted. The Bishop of South Park is the story of a young white preacher’s journey into an unfamiliar culture of black gospel distinctives and expectations. Byron Zorn understood perfectly the way the whites did church. He had yet to come to terms with the black way of doing it. “Bishop, you preach like a white man.” “I am a white man!” “Yeah, and ain’t nobody holding it against you, neither. But Bishop, you could do better.” The Bishop of South Park is a humorous and heart rending love story of sacrifice and courage within the volatile waters of interracial relationships.

Book Short Summary:

Das neunzehnte Jahrhundert in Großbritannien war geprägt von technologischen, politischen und gesellschaftlichen Veränderungen, die sich auch medial bemerkbar machten: Die Printmedien eröffneten einen Massenmarkt, der mit Publikationen für beinahe jede Bevölkerungsgruppe und verschiedenste Interessen aufwartete. Der gesellschaftliche Wandel ging zudem mit einem verstärkten Bedürfnis nach Orientierung einher, das in vielen Publikationen mithilfe der Semantik des Heroischen gestillt wurde. Als Leit- und Orientierungsfiguren sollten Helden Anhaltspunkte für die Leserschaft bieten. Durch die Untersuchung von Chambers's Journal, Fraser's Magazine, und Leisure Hour fächert der vorliegende Band verschiedene Konzeptionen des Heroischen auf dem viktorianischen Printmarkt auf und zeigt, welche unterschiedlichen didaktischen, sozialen und politischen Funktionalisierungen dem Heroischen innerhalb der sich verändernden Machtstrukturen für verschiedene Leserschichten zukamen.

Book Short Summary:

The benefits of altruism and empathy are obvious. These qualities are so highly regarded and embedded in both secular and religious societies that it seems almost heretical to suggest they can cause harm. Like most good things, however, altruism can be distorted or taken to an unhealthy extreme. Pathological Altruism presents a number of new, thought-provoking theses that explore a range of hurtful effects of altruism and empathy. Pathologies of empathy, for example, may trigger depression as well as the burnout seen in healthcare professionals. The selflessness of patients with eating abnormalities forms an important aspect of those disorders. Hyperempathy - an excess of concern for what others think and how they feel - helps explain popular but poorly defined concepts such as codependency. In fact, pathological altruism, in the form of an unhealthy focus on others to the detriment of one's own needs, may underpin some personality disorders. Pathologies of altruism and empathy not only underlie health issues, but also a disparate slew of humankind's most troubled features, including genocide, suicide bombing, self-righteous political partisanship, and ineffective philanthropic and social programs that ultimately worsen the situations they are meant to aid. Pathological Altruism is a groundbreaking new book - the first to explore the negative aspects of altruism and empathy, seemingly uniformly positive traits. The contributing authors provide a scientific, social, and cultural foundation for the subject of pathological altruism, creating a new field of inquiry. Each author's approach points to one disturbing truth: what we value so much, the altruistic "good" side of human nature, can also have a dark side that we ignore at our peril.

Book Short Summary:

GOOD GUYS AND BAD GUYS REVEALED! RETHINK AND REPENT, FOR THE TRUE KINGDOM OF GOD HAS COME!! THE CURRENT GLOBAL WARMING IS A GLOBAL WARNING INDEED!!! THE TWO SEEDS book takes the Multifaceted Law of Double Reference (the major tool to decode all Scriptures) into another facet with the revelation of the GOOD GUYS and BAD GUYS. Understanding this Law that guides the Law of Faith is what promotes us from Babes Christians to Mature Christians (Heb. 5:13-14, Matt. 13:52). Know for sure that a Babe (a Christian who lives in the flesh) cannot please the Lord (Rom. 8:5-8, 1Cor. 3:1-4) nor reign in life (Gal. 4:1-2). Only the Mature Christian can please the Lord (Heb. 11:6) because he is a possessor of the true Faith. Most things in life have two sides, for example, Head and Tail, Right and Left, Male and Female, Light and Darkness, White and Black, New and Old, Good and Bad, Up and Down, Joy and Sorrow, Positive and Negative, 1st Leg or Coming and 2nd Leg or Coming, Beginning and End etc to make up the TWO WITNESSES of things (see Duet. 19:15, Matt. 18:16, 2Cor. 13:1, Luke 10:1, Eccles. 4:9). One prophet may speak of the Tail or Left or New while the other or even the same prophet speaks differently on the Head or Right or Old e.g. earth is forever (Ps. 104:5, Is. 60:21) and earth is NOT forever (Matt. 24:35, Ps. 102:25-26, Is. 51:6, 2Pet. 3:10) yet no prophet is wrong. Hence, no one should DISAGREE or speak against any Bible prophet just because what you want to hear is different from what you need to hear from the prophet of God. All prophets are like brothers pointing to one Father or like road-signs pointing to one Destination - which is JESUS. Humanity must not be divided on prophets (see 1Cor. 3:4-6) as in many religions with the many denominations. Humanity must be UNITED (Eph. 1:10) on JESUS - the Unification of all things for Global - Peace. Looking unto Jesus (Heb. 12:2) - the Pointed and not unto any prophet or any man - the Pointer. See 2Pet. 1:20. What a man knows is under his control but what he doesn't know is above him and will control him. The same heat that softens and refines the Gold (BELIEVER) is the same heat that hardens and destroys the Clay (UNBELIEVER). Strive to enter into the true kingdom of God because most people are only interested in their own kingdoms (Luke 13:24-30, Phil. 2:20-21). Refuse to be limited by their limitations. Get out of the prophesied Second Babylonian Captivity in (Rev. 18:2)! Get out of mind captivity!! Be unlimited for true freedom!!! By the Grace of God, the whole world is my classroom. I am the Authorized Teacher to TEACH the meek humanity to KNOW the Complete and Perfect KNOWLEDGE (Col. 4:12) of the true Righteousness, true Peace and true Joy of the true Kingdom of God so as to live (John 17:3, Matt. 12:32, Matt. 6:33) and not die (Ps. 118:17-29). Stay alive and well by staying connected to the greatest spiritual NETWORK for the deepest, widest and highest divine information. It is better to be a living lamb or even a wounded dog than to be a dead lion. Complete and Perfect knowledge bring Complete and Perfect SALVATION! God so Loves you and I Love you too! Taye the Peace-Baptiser.

Book Short Summary:

‘Reaching the Mirage Called Happiness’ written by Brig. Dr. Mrinal Nag is an endeavour to apprise fellow human beings that happiness can never be achieved by chasing it. Happiness drifts away like a mirage if we chase it but can be easily achieved by all of us if we learn to share our success with fellow human beings of the society especially with those who are poor, needy, and sick for no fault of theirs; those who need our help to be happy. Approximately 1.3 billion out 7.8 billion people in the world at present are poor and hungry. There are millions of people who are needy and sick in various parts of the world. People like Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and many others are donating to help the poor of the society. People like Florence Nightingale and Mother Teresa offered selfless service to the sick and helpless people of the world. Doctors and Nurses treated Covid-19 patients at great risk to their own lives. All these people are great examples for us. They inspire us to donate to the poor and offer our selfless service to the sick and helpless. The mindset of giving back to the society will only come to us if we learn to become good human beings first, which precedes being human. The ingredients of DISCIPLINE, if followed properly, can make us good human beings who would develop a mindset to help the needy and would even donate our own body organs to be used after our demise. The book has suggested a World Charitable Fund Trust to help the poor of the world in addition to the existing organisations. It has also suggested a recipe to achieve happiness which, if followed, will ensure happiness for all. This book may prove to be very useful for all parents, teachers, students, and young ones, to decipher the secret of achieving happiness.

Book Short Summary:

Self fulfillment is the key factor that Sir Justus Abramelech is passionate about in his manuscript to reveal to his audience a greater self awareness. Happiness and common values harmonize unity. Many of today’s problems are vast and are not always resolved as there is a great need for a since of direction when one embarks on new territory. Many relationships have been violated and without a community to share concerns or hold accountable; Sir Justus Abramelech has took it upon himself to share poetic experiences, relational values of the spiritual and physical realm to awaken the conscious mind to know the why. Logic is the connection of synergy for outside influence that benefits a community without dictatorship.
