Description :


Author Mary Riem lived the American dream. Her childhood in Seattle, Washington, was idyllic, infused by a wholesome family and faith. As she grew into a woman and an agnostic her ambition and passion led her to achieve success in many areas of her life. Riem dreamed of adventurous travel, and she realized her goal to experience the world on her terms. She seemed to have it all. But instead of great contentment, Riem found herself deep in despair, battling an eating disorder and drug addiction. In "Journey to Peace," Riem shares her account of the dramatic ways that God revealed himself to her, and she tells why as an adult she became a Christian after many years of agnosticism. She narrates stories of her global travel, including a life-impacting experience working for Mother Teresa in India. A memoir, "Journey to Peace" tells how Riem transformed from one who constantly sought new experiences to satisfy her longings to a person of contentment and peace.

Description :


I have been writing since I was 13 years old. It started for me as a means to express my thoughts, while at the same time being able to keep my thoughts to myself. For me, writing is something that must come through inspiration. It takes me to a place outside of myself. At any point in time, a thought, an idea or even a single word comes to mind and the poetry envelopes itself around it. The concept may take a minute to create, or it could take an hour or more—it all depends upon how strong the thought or the idea may be. A force so strong within me says “write”, and so I write. Then, the work takes on a life all its own. Twenty years ago, I looked ahead and I saw an entirely different future for me. It is truly surreal to me--because I was looking at my situation at a different in my life and I could not see beyond those circumstances. This book is intended to inspire others to trust in a power beyond the realms of what they may see at the moment because they are not looking at an accurate picture of their future. Dare to dream--to believe that all things are possible to them that believe--to believe in themselves—not because of, but in spite of circumstances--to view different perspectives. No one knows what the future holds for them. They can only imagine. I encourage you to find that inner spirit then trust that higher power, dare to dream and believe it will come to fruition. The journey towards finding that inner peace is a long one—one that people search for throughout their lifetime. Tamar Deborah

Description :


Intertwined with Rosemary McCarthys personal journey of shifting from an angry, frustrated person blaming others for her unhappiness, to someone who now lives content with herself and in harmony with others, Your Journey to Peace brings the esoteric to the practical and maps out how to become your Best Self and feel empowered in all areas of your life. It also explains: Why we are the way we are individually and collectively; and how we got this way. How we find peace within ourselves by making peace in our relationships and all situations. That God does not allow for suffering! We create it by upholding dualistic concepts of me-and-you and us-and-them that we embraced at our beginnings and before form. The precursor to the Big Bang was the need for form to play out those dualistic concepts we chose at our beginnings: all our issues stem from those original concepts based on ideas of separation rather than unity. That understanding time makes the seven-day creation model valid. What are the extraterrestrials origins? How we can reconcile the growing evidence of our past association with the ETs and our scriptures and beliefs. Our need to embrace the Indigenous peoples connection to Gaia. That we chose to be here at this time of the Shift to bring about our personal and Gaias Ascensions.

Description :


Across more than four decades, the conflict between the national government and Muslim liberation forces in the southern Philippines has killed tens of thousands and displaced millions. Two landmark agreements under the presidency of Benigno S Aquino III — the first in 2012 and the second in 2014 — raised high hopes that peace might finally be on the way. But the peace process stalled, and has yet to regain momentum, after a botched counterterrorism operation in early 2015. This volume provides both in-depth examination of the latest stage of a still-ongoing peace process as well as richly textured analysis of the historical, political, and economic context underlying one of the most enduring conflicts in the world. It is thus an extremely important foundational resource in the continuing quest for peace and prosperity in Mindanao. Contents: Introduction: The Travails of Promoting Peace and Prosperity in Mindanao (Paul D Hutchcroft)National Political Update: Can the Gains Be Sustained? Assessing the First Five Years of the Aquino Administration (Ronald D Holmes)Historical Foundations: War and Peace in Muslim Mindanao: Critiquing the Orthodoxy (Patricio N Abinales)The Role of International Actors in the Search for Peace in Mindanao (Steven Rood)Peace Prospects: Forging a Peace Settlement for the Bangsamoro: Compromises and Challenges (Miriam Coronel Ferrer)Building the Bangsamoro Government (Abhoud Syed M Lingga)The Mamasapano Detour (Edilberto C de Jesus and Melinda Quintos de Jesus)Development Challenges: Human Development in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao: Trends, Traps, and Immediate Challenges (Toby C Monsod)The Shadow Economy and Strongman Rule in Mindanao (Francisco J Lara Jr) Readership: Scholars in South East Asian Studies, peace studies, History of Philippines, and conflict studies. Keywords: Mindanao;Philippines;Peace;Muslim Liberation Forces;Benigno S Aquino IIIReview: Reviews of the First Edition: "This compendium of essays could not have come at a more appropriate time. For the first time in Philippine history, the new President hails from Mindanao. The administration of Rodrigo R. Duterte will certainly benefit from the analysis of the experts who have contributed to this volume, as they examine the complex factors that contributed to the 2014 Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro as well as derailed the passage of the Bangsamoro Basic Law. An excellent and accessible guide for better understanding both the armed conflict in Mindanao and the peace process." Amina Rasul President, Philippine Center for Islam and Democracy "All of us, stakeholders to peace in Mindanao, have invested a lot to win the peace. We have missed a lot of opportunities, but before us is a chance to deliver one final contributors to this book credibly present truths, analyses, and historical insights. It allows for informed judgment by key players, opinion makers, and the public." General Emmanuel T Bautista (Ret.) Former Chief of Staff, Armed Forces of the Philippines "With so many national and regional policymakers and pundits eager to identify links — both real and exaggerated — between Mindanao and broader regional terrorist networks, a clear-eyed assessment of the challenges for peace in the southern Philippines has never been more urgent.

Description :


Cindy Henson's Jungle: A Journey to Peace, Purpose, and Freedom is much like Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat Pray Love - except for the corporate leader. Nearly two decades into her corporate career, Henson was awakened to a lifelong addiction to overworking and "taking one for the team" by a debilitating illness, which led her to the jungle of Costa Rica to pursue a master's degree in International Peace and Conflict Studies from the United Nations-Affiliated, University for Peace. In her renewed approach to life, she integrates laughter, adventure, generosity, and love into all that she does at work and in her personal life. She shares how nearly everyone can discover and authentically express their natural gifts and talents so that the world is continually transformed, as well. In Jungle, she introduces The Seven Principles to Peace, Purpose, and Freedom the manifesto by which she approaches all aspects of life. 1. Tap into Your Fun Quotient! 2. Resolve Past Issues and Release Your Brain Power! 3. Discover what Juices You and Pursue It! 4. Activate Your Learning Gene! 5. See Your Colleagues Bigger Than They See Themselves! 6. Move into Action! 7. Choose to be Unstoppable! Jungle reminds us that the old ways of violence in family, business, and politics must give way to new ways of relating built on peace, purpose, and freedom. Additionally, Cindy explores: work-life balance, career change & transformation, heart-centered leadership, and more. Cindy takes readers deep inside her personal transformation from an overworked, overwhelmed executive to a woman who has broadened her horizons and now understands that the approach of people over profits is what ails the world, and that the triple bottom line- people, planet, and profits- is a much better equation for success for all.

Description :


The Timpanogos were first discovered by Spanish explorer Juan Revera in 1765, and later Dominguez and Escalante in 1776. They describe in their journals having met "the bearded ones" who spoke Shoshone. Some seventy thousand Timpanogos Indians - the aboriginal people of Utah - died from violence, starvation, and disease after Mormon colonists stole their land and destroyed their culture over a twenty-one-year timeframe, but few people know anything about them, who they are, or what they believed in. Timpanogos leader Black Hawk witnessed the worst kind of man's inhumanity to man, and himself dying from a gunshot wound traveled a hundred and eighty miles on horseback to make peace with the white man, and apologizes for the pain and suffering he caused them, asking them to do the same and end the bloodshed. Phillip B Gottfredson, who has spent decades living among First Nations people seeking to understand Native American culture, provides a detailed synopsis of the Black Hawk War of Utah that decimated the Timpanogos Nation from 1849 and 1873. His account brings a much-needed perspective to a war that has historically been examined from the one-sided perspective of the Mormons. In collaboration with tribal leaders, he shares the Timpanogos version of the story, writing from the vantage point of the native peoples of Utah - a reference point that has been deliberately ignored. Join the author as he shares his extraordinary spiritual journey into the Native America culture. and highlights a war that has been overlooked and misunderstood for far too long.
