Trapping was becoming a dying trade and not many could make it in such a harsh life. But Joshua Walker had worked these mountains and streams most of his adult life and preferred it, to what was becoming the new progressive way of living. With winter coming on soon he knew the much-feared Arikara Indians would be making way to their wintering camps so he skirted their country in search of place to set his traps and settle in for the winter himself. Just as he had begun his travels, he encountered something that bewildered him and upon closer inspection he bore witness to a grizzly scene that would alter his destiny forever.
The needs and desires of the human spirit are very much the same the world over, no matter what age you were born. This book of course is fiction, I couldn't have known Nagel. However, I have researched the time, location, and culture and attempted to make it fit as if I was there. The triumph of the human spirit is ageless. If we could magically look back in time, you may have to change the name but I believe Nagel was there! This book is dedicated to my sons, grandsons and great grandsons and the free-spirit of young boys and girls the world over. Wilma R. Forester
Worship of this ancient mythical god has produced distorted political and social systems. This is the foundation of todays values and worldview among general populations of the so-called civilized world. Tradition (slow cultural conditioning) and the use of modern social engineering manufactured the world we have today. A world controlled by a few small powerful groups in the area of religion, politics and commerce. In the hands of unscrupulous people, fear and greed have been sown and cultivated individually and nationally, for wealth and power of their particular limited group rather than for the common good. This book amply illustrates the political, social, commercial and theological mess that we have inherited as a consequence. The exclusivity of the three main stream religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam has brought the world to the brink of disaster. The only solution to this is through a particular style of Education already in use worldwide. Early intervention is vital. This book does not destroy faith, it encourages and focuses it as a rational, experiential recognition of the individual and collective human spirit. The collective consciousness must be harnessed for the Herculean task of saving humanity from the fate of self inflicted annihilation.
Well-known composer, author, and worship leader, Gerrit Gustafson, defines the twelve convictions of true worshipers to show readers what "worship" really means.
Uses new research about the brain to explore how we can transcend our current physical and cultural limitations • Reveals that transcendence of current modes of existence requires the dynamic interaction of our fourth and fifth brains (intellect and intelligence) • Explores the idea that Jesus, Lao-tzu, and other great beings in history are models of nature’s possibility and our ability to achieve transcendence • 17,000 sold in hardcover since April 2002 Why do we seem stuck in a culture of violence and injustice? How is it that we can recognize the transcendent ideal represented by figures such as Jesus, Lao-tzu, and many others who have walked among us and yet not seem to reach the same state? In The Biology of Transcendence Joseph Chilton Pearce examines the current biological understanding of our neural organization to address how we can go beyond the limitations and constraints of our current capacities of body and mind--how we can transcend. Recent research in the neurosciences and neurocardiology identifies the four neural centers of our brain and indicates that a fifth such center is located in the heart. This research reveals that the evolutionary structure of our brain and its dynamic interactions with our heart are designed by nature to reach beyond our current evolutionary capacities. We are quite literally, made to transcend. Pearce explores how this “biological imperative” drives our life into ever-greater realms of being--even as the “cultural imperative” of social conformity and behavior counters this genetic heritage, blocks our transcendent capacities, and breeds violence in all its forms. The conflict between religion and spirit is an important part of this struggle. But each of us may overthrow these cultural imperatives to reach “unconflicted behavior,” wherein heart and mind-brain resonate in synchronicity, opening us to levels of possibility beyond the ordinary.
