A lost classic found, a guidebook for life's biggest adventure--death!
Gustav Theodor Fechner was a 19th-century physicist, psychologist, metaphysicist, and musician, who applied his considerable intellect to examining the question of life after death. Does it exist? If so, what form might it take? First written and published in a time when traditional understanding of God and nature were undergoing a huge transformation, Fechner's reasonable, accessible, and groundbreaking book became a manual for living well and dying as part of life.
Fechner explains that death is another form of birth. That just as you cannot remember the time in the womb and the painful birthing process, so too will you not remember death when you have gone through another birthing or awakening into the spirit world. In this third stage of life, the quality of life is determined by one's actions in the second stage. Right actions provide spirits with a way to better influence the living. False actions on this plane provide nothing and can be debilitating in the world to come.

LITTLE BOOK OF THANK YOUS Letters, Notes & Quotes Addie Johnson
Saying “thanks” has no downside—write it, message it, shout it from the rooftops—it’s good for the one who hears it and better for the one who says it.
A Little Book of Thank Yous has a great big heart. • A great thank you gift for almost any occasion. • With thank you notes and quotes from historic figures and everyday people. • Mini-meditations on gratitude.
Discover the power of words and the wonder of deeds. Offer thanks, receive abundance. Expressing gratitude—saying thanks—it can improve outlooks, open new vistas, and help us get along better with ourselves and others. Addie Johnson offers us gratitude thoughts to grab on the run or sit and ponder. As she says in the introduction, “Gratitude comes from the latin gratus which means both thankful and pleasing. To give thanks is to get thanks.” She describes the moments of soaring gratitude, which punctuate more time as an “ingrate”, and sets out to teach herself—and her readers—how to move more to the soaring feeling column.
From Winston Churchill to Barack Obama, from Shakespeare to Virginia Woolf, from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to Anne Morrow Lindbergh. Johnson draws on historical figures and everyday people—all of them saying “Thank you!”
Echo Bodine sees dead people. And, in the course of her thirty year ghostbusting career, she has escorted countless souls of the dearly departed from bordellos, bars and b & bs - where they have overstayed their welcome - to the Other Side.
Based on her ghost-busting experiences, Bodine offers more than 40 ghost stories including:
- The policeman ghost who protected a house full of prostitutes - An angry ghost who liked to push people down stairs - A ghost prayer group - Roy, the ghost who hated children - Bar room brawler ghosts - Ken, the ghost of a Vietnam vet who didn't know he was dead - Peeping Tom ghosts, an alcoholic ghost and one ghost who just couldn't get enough sex.
These tales of ghosts, hauntings and things that go bump in the night are often funny, sometimes unnerving and always perceptive.

LITTLE SECRET THAT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE If you win the rat race, you're still a rat Joann Davis
With a light heart and in the nicest, most insightful way, Joann Davis invites us to stop running around in circles. If we stop working for the cheese at the end of the maze, for the biggest toys at the end of the day, who knows what we could accomplish or how we might feel? This little book is nothing less than a game plan for creating a life that counts. In the tradition of Robert Fulghum, The Little Secret That Can Change Your Life* is a collection of short inspirational essays designed to help readers discover the path to a more meaningful life, one that is less about running the modern rat race of workaholism, consumerism, debt, and frustration. The book suggests that a more rewarding way of living comes when we realize that beneath the surface of life is a spiritual economy made up of virtues and values. Money and material things matter, but they aren't everything. We must be careful not to gain the world and lose our souls. "Our inner world is ours to make of what we choose. Magnificent changes can radiate out of every human heart if we so desire. So then, if you are open, brave, and willing to take the challenge, read on. See if you don't agree that there's much more to life than winning the rat race." If every person who reads this book chooses one way to leave the rat race and passes the idea to just one other person, in no time at all our national priorities could change. Children could become more important than money. Virtue could become its own reward. Corporate greed could become passe. There are rules for rats Bite off more than you can chew. Act as if enough isn't ever. View life as part of work, instead of work as a part of life. Follow them all, win the race, and you'll still be a rat! There are rules for mice No fighting, no biting. You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours. If you can't fight 'em, lick 'em.
LIVE BOLDLY Cultivate the Qualities That Can Change Your Life Mary Anne Radmacher
Mary Anne Radmacher has a way of inviting those who hear or read her words to change their lives, and in Live Boldly, she continues on that engaging path.
In the book, she identifies an assortment of qualities for our life's journey and defines each as it relates to laughing loudly, loving truly, playing often, working smart, and sharing your heart. Each definition is followed by a quote, a poem, or an aphorism that explores the quality. Stories culled from Mary Anne's own life and teaching practice are followed by an invitation to readers to listen more closely to their lives, to give themselves what they need and to step back into their daily lives knowing they can choose in that moment, to live boldly by their own definition.
Whether readers need or want justice or gratitude, endurance or celebration, comfort or challenge, the process is the same - read and listen to the word, enter into its meaning in the lives of others and bring that meaning to your own life. Other qualities include generosity, compassion, leadership - 34 in all!
From the book: Living boldly is an exercise, a practice in reaching for qualities that will help you strengthen what is already strong within you but may need a little muscle work, some fine-tuning. It's also a way to identify what is not naturally present in you (or only present in what seems small measure) and put it there. Borrow it, in a sense, if only for a day.
LIVING AN UNCOMMON LIFE HB Essential Lessons From 21 Extraordinary People John St. Augustine
At the lowest point in his life after moving with his family into a hotel John St. Augustine undertook a miraculous journey. In an effort to raise money for the children of his community he walked from northern Michigan to Chicago - and back. This journey of a thousand miles became a journey of discovery a chance for St. Augustine to reinvent himself. It was on this walk that he first got the idea for a radio show that would be a positive voice in a world saturated by cynicism. Upon his return despite having no prior radio experience a local station gave him a chance: one hour a week for five weeks . . . . Ten years and 5000 guests later St. Augustine is living his dream and with LIVING AN UNCOMMON LIFE he offers readers the inspiration and knowledge for reaching their own dreams. St. Augustine saw a pattern in the lives of the exceptional personalities he has interviewed. Each of them refused to let negative circumstances dictate their life. Instead they found the inner strength to achieve great things. St. Augustine insists we all share these remarkable strengths and he offers powerful principles for unlocking your personal best.
LIVING IN THE TAO The Effortless Path of Self-Discovery Mantak Chia and William U Wei
Taoists say that we must learn to observe with the mind and think with the heart. In the West we get caught up in the “monkey mind” of our ego. We think we can control our individual destinies by swimming upstream against the current, but we are mistaken. When we learn to quiet the monkey mind with meditation practices, we are able to go beyond the linear thinking of the upper brain and connect to the multidimensional thinking of supreme consciousness in the heart centre.
In LIVING IN THE TAO, Master Mantak Chia and William Wei present techniques to help us learn to move beyond the limits of time and space to connect with the universal truth within - without striving. Living in the Tao is effortless. Just as a small seed grows into a mighty tree with a little water and a little sunshine every day, a few minutes of Taoist practice each day can transform your life into one of peace and joy.
· Teaches that the Tao is the flow of nature, the effortless middle path of self-discovery · Shows how to quiet the monkey mind (the ego) and listen within for your inner voice · Fosters a connection to the Tao through diet, exercise, livelihood and sexuality
