Source S Challenge   Going Beyond Spirituality

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Source's ChallengeGoing Beyond Spirituality is not about the life I have had. My past is my past; it does not define who I am. Instead, my past defines the people who have been in my life and the influences they have had on me. There is nothing wrong with this. Actually, I thank them for being there for me. Who I am personality-wise is a consequence of my pasta 'conditioning', one might say. As an individual, my challenge as an adult has been to un-condition myselfto find what I am made of, to be a consequence of myself, and to be at peace with this. Yes, others have had worse lives than me, but are they (and if you have picked up this book, are you), willing to move past your past and be un-conditioned? To move past the pain and hurt, the agony of being eaten away by the emotions brought about by family and life history? To face the new challenge of finding the real self? To let go of who you think you are and to find who you truly are? Source's ChallengeGoing Beyond Spirituality is meant to be used as a guide to question what one thinks, how one acts, why something happened, when it will change, and where one is going. The first step is to realise that everyone may not see from the same perspective, but no one is not alone in endeavours of searching for the Truth. And that Truth is who you really are.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Born in Germany, Georg Iggers escaped from Nazism to the United States in his adolescence where he became one of the most distinguished scholars of European intellectual history and the history of historiography. In his lectures, delivered all over the world, and in his numerous books, translated into many languages, Georg Iggers has reshaped historiography and indefatigably promoted cross-cultural dialogue. This volume reflects the profound impact of his oeuvre. Among the contributors are leading intellectual historians but also younger scholars who explore the various cultural contexts of modern historiography, focusing on changes of European and American scholarship as well as non-Western historical writing in relation to developments in the West. Addressing these changes from a transnational perspective, this well-rounded volume offers an excellent introduction to the field, which will be of interest to both established historians and graduate students.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Bill Bay asked me to write a follow up book to my last book, "The Bluegrass Pickers Tune Book (20233). If you like Bluegrass music (232 songs) I'd recommend getting that book to add to your collection. the focus of this book, the Acoustic Source Book is on roots and old-time music. the book is focused on the time period from late 1800's until 1940's. There are a few songs from the Bluegrass Book that were too important to be left out. I decided not to use any patriotic and Christmas songs and came up with a list of about 400 songs which eventually was cut down to over 200. During the late 1800's and early 1900's there was an important evolution in American music; the birth of jazz, ragtime, and blues. This was also the period of the phonograph and early commercial recordings. Music from the Minstrel period as well as traditional songs were used as staple for the roots musicians. In the early 1900's there were rags, blues, gospel, Tin-Pan Alley, jug band, spiritual, old-time country and popular songs. I've tried to include some of the well-known songs from every genre to give you a big slice of Americana. There are some great songs that are popular roots, bluegrass and old-time songs today that have never been published. There are also great songs that are not well known that should be played and enjoyed.Richard Matteson with Kara Pleasants Wildwood Flower http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KO9Xde2bdwA Paul & Silas http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bv5Tmaff9HQ Meet Me By the Moonlight http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gwzCZfnG64 Scarborough Fair http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grbxMlz_DlI Water is Wide http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-hZkxWs8gs Richard Matteson with Jessica KasterBarbara Allen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uX6PE80W4Pw In the Pines http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtOL9Id5TW4 Hop Along Peter http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5kAzSQ__rU Ain't Gonna Lay my Armor Down http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsBYRuT2_FU
