Deep within you is an indestructible soul whose voice and divine spark can speak the wisdom you need and prove the light to illuminate even the dark places and shadowy paths of your life journey.

"This book presents Spinoza as a spiritual psychotherapist. Spiritual, because the goal of Spinoza's philosophical system is union with God; psychotherapist, because the path to this goal lies through an understanding and ultimate transcendence of our afflictive emotions.".

The Evolving Soul is dedicated to the notion that we are all on a path of spiritual evolution and that we are meant to become highly evolved super-beings. It is not about the idea of a far-off concept such as heaven, but involves our capacity to live in a state of complete peace and harmony while living in this increasingly busy world. It is about how the Universe is teaching us to evolve every day. This book also explores the varying levels of spiritual growth through which we all progress, moving from resistance to tolerance, and eventually into full acceptance. It also examines how these varying states of evolution relate to relationships, ego, hidden issues, inner decisions, true happiness, and unconditional love. The Evolving Soul is designed as a guide toward the highly evolved path of finding true peace amidst the chaos. Through simple hands-on principles, it offers meaningful guidance toward a greater awareness of how life is trying to teach us to find this extraordinary state of being.
Museums and Social Change explores the ways museums can work in collaboration with marginalised groups to work for social change and, in so doing, rethink the museum. Drawing on the first-hand experiences of museum practitioners and their partners around the world, the volume demonstrates the impact of a shared commitment to collaborative, reflective practice. Including analytical discussion from practitioners in their collegial work with women, the homeless, survivors of institutionalised child abuse and people with disabilities, the book draws attention to the significant contributions of small, specialist museums in bringing about social change. It is here, the book argues, that the new museum emerges: when museum practitioners see themselves as partners, working with others to lead social change, this is where museums can play a distinct and important role. Emerging in response to ongoing calls for museums to be more inclusive and participate in meaningful engagement, Museums and Social Change will be essential reading for academics and students working in museum and gallery studies, librarianship, archives, heritage studies and arts management. It will also be of great interest to those working in history and cultural studies, as well as museum practitioners and social activists around the world.

Tested Faith describes the many obstacles and jubilation experienced by Rita in her journey from Nigeria to United States. In a gripping display of humor and grace, Rita takes us into her childhood in Nigeria, her journey to God’s own country and trials and triumphs. Rita’s faith has been under fire too many times to count and has built in her a strong resilience that can only come from God. She also examines the similarities as well as cultural clashes that have influenced her life in many different ways. Each one of us has something to contribute to life. Regardless of how much we have been beaten down, we can still help others. It is very fulfilling for me to realize that the tragedies in my life have empowered me to make a difference in my life and other people’s lives. We all have a purpose in this life. One’s purpose is unique to that individual alone. Our blessings are equally unique and are ours to grab. I cannot grab your blessings no matter how hard I try; neither can you grab mine. If I live this life without knowing what my purpose is, my purpose will vanquish at the end of my life and cannot be inherited by another person. My purpose is not for my good alone; rather, it is for humanity and to the glory of God. God never takes us anywhere that his grace does not abound for our guidance and protection. This we learn from biblical principles typified in the Bible’s many narratives. Yet in difficult times, we sometimes—perhaps often—ask ourselves: “Will God ever lead us to a place where he cannot protect us? Is anything difficult for God? Should we expect a life without temptation?” These questions undergird my story even if not always explicitly stated in the narrative that has given me great insight and joyous recollection.

We lie to ourselves every day, and these lies can lead to significant unhappiness in our lives. In Lies, authors Bridget Harwell and Elizabeth Scott present a collection of more than forty essays based on their daily interactions with clients who have suffered the pain of digging deeply and unearthing the self-deceptions that have limited their lives. Harwell and Scott, two successful, practicing psychologists, compiled the essays to examine the various forms of self-deception, many of which are unconscious attempts at self-protection which can go unnoticed and yet lead to stress and unhappiness. Accompanied by whimsical and evocative drawings, Lies examines a variety of themes, such as guilt, worry, indecision, and the power of relationships. Each piece is followed by a conversation between Harwell and Scott that seeks to add clarity to the discussion. Written in a conversational style that mimics a therapy session, this collection presents strategies for finding the truth beneath the lies we tell ourselves and gives us an opportunity to live a more integrated life, a life of authenticity that’s essential for any kind of true happiness.

If you cannot comfortably say with confidence that Jesus died for your sins and opens the door of salvation for you or that you deny Jesus, then this book is for you. So many Christians take Jesus for granted, and so many people do not understand His torment and the suffering He endured for us. We began a spiritual journey when we enter this world. We have a natural body and a world full of responsibilities to challenge us on our journey. We are influenced by many outside sources and personal interactions with our family members and friends. Ultimately, we make the most important decision of our life. Do we believe in God and accept Jesus as our Savior, or do we reject God and accept atheism? When you analyze the facts of the life of Jesus, his loving teachings, his horrible suffering, death and miraculous resurrection, you come to understand He did it for you. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. His teaching brings light into your life. Jesus is the gateway to eternal happiness when we leave this world. Atheism with its evil influence wants to drag you down and have you reject God. Atheists are in total denial about God, Jesus, supernatural experiences, something from nothing, and the wisdom in the formation of this universe and mankind. Atheists want you to believe you will simply rot in the ground and accept life with no future hope. If you are an atheist, don't laugh at this thought and concern. As a Christian, I care for you and your soul. That is certainly more than what the atheistic thinking has in mind for you. Atheism, under the influence of Satan, offers you nothing but the door way to eternal conscious separation from God. This book is a direct challenge to the thoughts and beliefs of the atheist. I wrote this book with the hope it just might stir the mind of a non-believer. Then believing the Holy Spirit will do the rest.
What is love? Craig thought that he knew what it was until his life fell apart and his dreams shattered along with all that he held close to his heart burnt in the fires of divorce and broken hearts. He thought it was giving up our dreams in order to please others and to do whatever it takes to make them happy, but that isn’t love. Everything that he thought was love failed over and over and felt more like neediness and desperation instead of love. Believing that his only source of love was from others he had given away his dreams and his power which left him feeling broken and needy. Love is a heart and soul learning how to love and dream again with increased openness and greater depth. Love is many things but it is never needy or broken. In his journey to love again the answers came. It exposes our inner song as a gift to those we love and to the world. This is a gift to the world. It is Craig’s inner song of loving again with the transparency and nakedness of love. It is remembering and learning that love is. Read on and see if it speaks to your soul like it has for so many others. Love is...
Beckoning: When Happiness Calls How to release negative and limited thinking and reveal the happiness waiting for you. Rebecca B. Cooper, the creator of Fl!p Your Thinking (TM) - Flash Cards for the Soul, was forced to reinvent her life after a series of intense losses. She quickly learned about the dark side of the law of attraction - that when you feel and think like a victim, you attract more heartbreak. She had heard change your thinking - change your life but struggled with how do you change the thought patterns you’ve been practicing for years? How do you rewire your brain for happiness? Beckoning is the story of how she turned the downward spiral around and in the process built a company to help others do the same. Through storytelling and thought-provoking questions, Rebecca guides us to connect with the wisdom held in the everyday events of our own lives. Beckoning will spark your imagination and inspire you to create the life you wish to live. The power of what Rebecca offers isn't only in the pearls of wisdom...it's in the story. There's an impact of information shared through storytelling that far outshines the standard “here is some good advice” self-help book out there. It helps information become “real.” People relate to it, understand it, and remember it. - Curt Rosengren, Author , 101 Ways to Get Wild About Work

In light of the overwhelming presence of neoliberalism within academia, this book examines how academics resist and manage these changes. The first of two volumes, this diptych of critical academic work investigates generative spaces, or ‘cracks’ in neoliberal managerialism that can be exposed, negotiated, exploited and energised with renewed collegiality, subversion and creativity. The editors and contributors explore how academics continue to find space to work in collegial ways; defying the neoliberal logic of ‘brands’ and ‘cost centres’. Part I of this diptych illuminates the lived experiences of changing academic roles; portraying institutional life without the glossy filter of marketing campaigns and brochures, and revealing generative spaces through critical testimony, fiction, arts-based projects, feminist and Indigenous critical scholarship. It will be of interest and value to anyone concerned with neoliberalism in academia, as well as higher education more generally.
