Utopia Found: A Blueprint for Spiritual Renaissance and World Peace by Troy Reicherter 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 13 minutes ago

If we are to save the planet, we need to think outside the box like never before. Utopia Found rises to meet this epic challenge. It is unlike anything ever written: a journey through the whole of the human experience in search of those special elements of culture that, collectively, have the power to save us. This book offers a brand new paradigm for living peacefully and sustainably on earth. The five sections of the book are: 1. Science and the Search for Truth in the West Explains how the scientific tradition grew from the search for spiritual truth, and explores our basic misconceptions about it. 2. Toward a Multidimensional Understanding of the Universe Explains the inherent limitations of scientific understandings, and provides evidence for metaphysical realities. 3. Jesus Christ and the Worldwide Traditions of Yoga Explains how the life and teachings of Christ can be understood in a larger spiritual context. 4. A Unified Spiritual Culture Compares the similarity of principles and practices from world spiritual traditions to form a framework of common understandings and agreements. 5. Creating a Spiritual Renaissance Describes how we can form spiritual communities that bring people from different races and religions together, and use this template to create a peaceful, sustainable future. This groundbreaking book is what the world needs more than ever at this critical juncture, providing a sane alternative to our current dystopian path. This is a way to save ourselves, transform our planet in a new image, and achieve our unlimited potential as beings of light.

Architecture of a Technodemocracy: How Technology and Democracy Can Revolutionize Governments, Empower the 100%, and End the 1% System by Jason M. Hanania (technodemocracy.us) 4.4 Stars (77 Reviews)    Price verified 13 minutes ago

The world is primed for radical changes in government where each of us has an equal voice and all are held accountable. In Architecture of a Technodemocracy, Hanania provides a detailed blueprint on how to leverage current government processes, communications systems, and blockchain security to take the next step in the evolution of human government. By harnessing technology that already exists, we can nonviolently reshape our respective governments. The cooperation of modern politicians is not a requirement. A technodemocracy can be created without spending any tax dollars, passing any new laws, or otherwise turning to career politicians for leadership. Like Bitcoin, technodemocracy uses readily available technologies to decentralize power from the 1% to the 100%. Its principles can be applied to any nation. Despite being drafted more than 200 years ago, the Constitution enables a U.S. technodemocratic republic. No nation in history has ever had such an absolute straightaway to a 100% democratic government -- the opportunity to revolutionize society, economy, and environment without using violence. Through illustrations, examples, and analogies, Architecture of a Technodemocracy provides an elegantly simple method for decentralizing power to 100% of the American people and, in the process, ending the U.S. political party system. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Jason M. Hanania is an attorney, an engineer, and a former U.S. government employee. He ran for the U.S. Senate in 2016 as the first technodemocratic candidate. PREFACE In 2016, I ran for the U.S. Senate as the first technodemocratic candidate. During that process, I received hundreds of questions. Architecture of a Technodemocracy answers those questions. This book is organized into four parts: I. Government Requirements II. Legal Requirements III. Technical Requirements IV. Social Requirements Democracy requires that the four powers of government be decentralized equally to those governed. Part I looks at ...

Is Life One Big Goodbye: Homeless Woman's Survival Story by Rose Lamatt 4.4 Stars (38 Reviews)    Price verified 13 minutes ago

I blend into the walls, like other women: faceless, no expression -- a dead look. I've lost my identity, my individuality. I no longer know myself. The other women are young, Black, Hispanic, few White, like me. If there's a 'me' underneath this faceless disguise that has attached itself to my body, I want it to leave, now! After having been married with children, colonial home, belonging to golf country clubs, and divorce, at age 68, after surgery and medical bills, I had no other choice but to sign myself into a Homeless Shelter. About Author: Rose Lamatt was born on Long Island, NY, daughter of an emigrant Italian father and a mother from South Philly. She married, raised a family and lived on Long Island until moving to Florida in1985. She always had a passion for writing.

Exploring the Mind: Discovering Humps and How they shape us by Gary W. Cross Price verified 11 hours ago

The mind is perhaps the most complex thing in the universe. Use it well and we can be wise, and help make a good life for our self and those around us. Use it poorly and... Yet we spend little time, if any, trying to understand our mind and how to better use it. In this book, we explore the mind, so that we may better understand it, and thus better use it. Explorations are offered throughout the book to help you, the reader, to explore the mind yourself. When you explore something yourself (rather than just read the results of others' explorations) your understanding will be much deeper, you will better remember what has been explored, and most importantly, you will be more likely to utilize the knowledge that you gain - in this case, to better use your mind and to have a better life. In the initial explorations, you will discover what features you have in your mind. Importantly, we are not exploring the physical features of our brains (such as neurons, the cortex, thalamus, amygdala... ). In this book, we restrict our explorations to those features in our minds that we can personally explore, such as our thoughts, memories and feelings. Next you will discover humps - what I consider to be the most important features of the mind. We all have humps, many of them. Mostly we are unaware of them, and unaware of what enormous effects they have on us. Understand the characteristics of humps, and you understand the characteristics of your mind! Next you will discover why it is important to know about your humps. You discover that your humps shape what you think, feel, desire, dislike, look at, expectations, say and do. Finally, you explore other humps and how they shape your humps. Other humps include the humps of other people, the humps in your cultures and the humps (or patterns) in the world around you. You will discover how these other humps shape your own humps, and thus play a large part in shaping your mind and your reality. This book is part of the series ...

Exploring a Good Life with Humps in Mind by Gary W. Cross Price verified 11 hours ago

We all seek a good life for ourselves, but even more so, for our children and grandchildren. But what is a good life? What stops us from having a good life? And how can we achieve a good life, or at least a better life? In this book, we use our knowledge of the mind, in particular our knowledge about humps, to help us to better understand what a good life is, and how to better achieve a good life (or at least have a better life). Importantly, this book won't (and can't) tell you what your specific directions to a good life are. However, this book does offer help for you to determine your own specific directions (which depends on your specific humps and the specific humps of those around you). If we don't know and follow our own directions, then we are following others' directions. This book is part of the series 'With Humps in Mind'. The basic premise of this series is that the better we understand our own mind, the better we will use our mind, the wiser we will be, and the better life we, and those around us, will have. Other books in the series include: 'Exploring the Mind - Discovering Humps and How they shape us' 'Exploring Wisdom with Humps in Mind' 'The Way of Sophia with Humps in Mind'
