Who am I, if not my heart? A close encounter with the mysterious force field universally known as the white light, triggers a series of catalytic awakenings that deliver radical insights into what it means to be alive. In sharing these revelatory seeds of consciousness, Lujan invites us to openly examine bias and discover where our alignments are leading us. Incalculable variables of vibration define our reality from A to Z. In a rapidly changing technological and social context, it is now time we took a very close look at the pervasive influence of frequency upon our perception and behavior, both individually and collectively. To be governed by heart awareness within our personal application to the world is how we can reassign our attention to what actually matters. Pure feeling guides us into our innate ability to infuse with one another to the point where we experience unified consciousness. Full remembrance of this empathic communion is an evolutionary imperative whose time has come. Authenticity and taking the risk to truly care are not only crucial to our survival but necessary traits indicating readiness to participate in the greater galactic community. Beyond our earthly holding zone communication is sent and received as direct energetic transmissions that transcend cultural or species- based codes and boundaries. Truth and sincerity is the only currency that has value, and nothing less will open this elusive door. By introducing perspectives that enable us to look beyond the thresholds we are contained within, this book shines a powerful light upon the lies and limitations that have been perpetuated towards humankind. Controversial and necessary, these internal illuminations have the power to change the world, for they will change you. Are you ready? You’ve only your illusions to lose. 1. Language: English.

Much of what is known in modern management theory today is not new. In fact most successful contemporary management ideas stem from the history of administrative thought. For this reason, it is essential for students to place modern management in proper perspective and to explore the originand evolution of management theory.Management: Ideas and Actions is an integrative text covering essential concepts of management theory. The text has two primary goals: the first goal is to illustrate that there are recurring themes in the field which transcend both time and fashion; the second goal is to demonstrate the continuingusefulness of concepts and prescriptions resulting from these themes by presenting case examples from modern organizations and experiences of individual managers. The text shows that although management can appear faddish, it is not about fads, and that although it is a practical art fundamentallyabout human relationships, it is also systematic and conceptual.Ideal for undergraduate, MBA, and graduate-level management courses, Management: Ideas and Actions demonstrates that management is cumulative and has scientific foundations, illustrates evolving currents and themes, and confirms occasional revolutionary progress. The author believes that weshortchange management and its history if we limit ourselves only to contemporary interpretations, and that we seriously hinder future managers by not sharing the wisdom that has emerged over more than a century.

What would it be like to transcend the limitations on planet earth? How intriguing would it be to experience life through a higher mind, with significantly broader experiences than you ever imagined? Journey Beyond Linear Time reveals that heaven is neither up there nor out there somewhere. Instead it is right here where we stand. The author has walked on this earth in pure spirit multiple times in this incarnation. He has seen inside others, and recognized their scars, their pain and the troubles they bore. He has had divine experiences right here on earth, which most would consider out of this world. And he has been inside the massive and expansive energy field we refer to as God. He states that it exists, it is substantive, and it is where we come from. Author of Journey Beyond Linear Time, Raphael Jara was born spiritually awake, and is now sharing some of his own extraordinary experiences here on earth. He takes the reader on a journey through our earthly indulgence in simple mind, and opens the pathway for us to realize whom we truly are. And that realization will bring us to the truth of our existence, and the reason for which we take this journey to the denseness of planet earth. He states: 'a profound truth is that we are multidimensional beings having a human experience, with the ability to transform ourselves from our limiting human capacity, into our divine essence, with capabilities beyond the imagined'. And with this higher level of consciousness, we can then live our lives through truth, and not through the unconsciousness that appeases the simple mind. Our capability far transcends our human limitations, for we are the expressions of the Universal Self.

Cultural Diversity and Families: Expanding Perspectives breaks new ground by investigating how concepts of cultural diversity have shaped the study of families from theoretical and applied perspectives. Authors Bahira Sherif Trask and Raeann R. Hamon move the dialogue about culturally diverse families to a new level by topically discussing the issues affecting culturally diverse families rather than organizing the information by racial and or ethnic groups. Key Features: Investigates the impact of cultural diversity on the study of families: In order to transcend simplistic categorizations that have juxtaposed White families in opposition to families of color and vice versa, this book delineates the increasing cultural diversity of American families and examines the impact of these demographic changes for the social sciences. Emphasizes the full range of cultural aspects: The book consciously emphasizes cultural aspects, not just ethnicity, but also socioeconomic status, gender, religion, etc. over racial impacts on family life so as not to reinforce the myth that race is a biological truth. By sharing unique family experiences across groups, the book enhances understanding, directs future family research, and serves these families through responsive policy and practice. Offers more coverage of culturally diverse families than any other text: Divided into three parts, this comprehensive text first sets the stage of historical, current, and projected demographic trends pertaining to American families; explores issues facing culturally diverse families from a thematic perspective; and discusses of the impact of cultural diversity for family theory, research, service delivery, and public policy. Intended Audience: This is an excellent text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses such as Families in a Multicultural Society, Ethnic Minority Families, and Cultural Diversity in American Families in the departments of Human Development &BAD:amp; Family Studies, Sociology, and Family Social Work.
A deeply moving and masterfully written story of human resilience and enduring love, The Plum Tree follows a young German woman through the chaos of World War II and its aftermath. 'Bloom where you're planted,' is the advice Christine Bölz receives from her beloved Oma. But seventeen-year-old domestic Christine knows there is a whole world waiting beyond her small German village. It's a world she's begun to glimpse through music, books--and through Isaac Bauerman, the cultured son of the wealthy Jewish family she works for. Yet the future she and Isaac dream of sharing faces greater challenges than their difference in stations. In the fall of 1938, Germany is changing rapidly under Hitler's regime. Anti-Jewish posters are everywhere, dissenting talk is silenced, and a new law forbids Christine from returning to her job--and from having any relationship with Isaac. In the months and years that follow, Christine will confront the Gestapo's wrath and the horrors of Dachau, desperate to be with the man she loves, to survive--and finally, to speak out. Set against the backdrop of the German homefront, this is an unforgettable novel of courage and resolve, of the inhumanity of war, and the heartbreak and hope left in its wake. Advance Praise For Ellen Marie Wiseman's The Plum Tree 'The Plum Tree is a touching story of heroism and loss, a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the power of love to transcend the most unthinkable circumstances. Deft storytelling and rich characters make this a highly memorable read and a worthy addition to the narratives of the Holocaust and Second World War.' --Pam Jenoff, author of The Ambassador's Daughter 'A haunting and beautiful debut novel.' --Anna Jean Mayhew, author of The Dry Grass of August 'In The Plum Tree, Ellen Marie Wiseman boldly explores the complexities of the Holocaust. This novel is at times painful, but it is also a satisfying love story set against the backdrop of one of the most difficult times in human history.' --T. Greenwood, author of Two Rivers 'An unusual point of view on the Holocaust. [The Plum Tree] is a story of star-crossed lovers in a time of genocide. . .The details are exquisite and very thorough. Young adult readers will find it refreshing to read a different perspective toward WWII Germany. The terrors of the war will ignite compassion and disbelief.' - VOYA Magazine
I Initially wrote this book to retrieve my 'voice' and it took on a life of its own. There are so many people that are struggling with their emotions and finding their voice. They have no understanding why their life is crumbling all around them. By sharing my story it is my hope that you will find the courage to go within and throw off the shackles of pain and suffering, to stand tall in the full Glory of your Essence, the love that you are and to retrieve your voice. To live in and from the Peace, Joy, Grace and Power that is your Essence is what we are here to be and do. We are 'The One' that we have been waiting for. If my story opens the door for just one person, to find the Peace and Love they have been yearning for, it would have been worth everything. Life's journeys are great adventures for all of us. But if we're really lucky, some of them take us beyond anything we might have imagined. Mett e Christensen's journey is surely one of those. We're fortunate indeed to have her share it. George Greene, PhD I believe fervently in being the change that I want to see. It all starts with us as individuals. This book is about one amazing woman's journey through a lifetime, and how it can transcend for all of us; it just starts from within you. It is filled with key reminders of universal tools that we oft en forget when we feel our lives are shaken to the core. I find it essential to keep around and reference back to as I walk through my own journey. J. Darland, Business Consultant
