Between Earth and Empire focuses on the crucial position of humanity at the present moment in Earth History. We have left the Cenozoic, the "new period of life," and are now in the midst of the Necrocene, a period of mass extinction and reversal of the course of evolution of life on Earth. It is argued that an effective response to global crisis requires attention to all major spheres of social determination, including the social institutional structure, the social ideology, the social imaginary, and the social ethos. In this wide-ranging and ruthlessly compassionate critique, John P. Clark explores examples of significant progress in this direction, including the Zapatista movement in Chiapas, the Democratic Autonomy Movement in Rojava, indigenous movements in defense of the commons, the solidarity economy movement, and efforts to create liberated base communities and affinity groups within anarchism and other radical social movements. In the end, the book presents a vision of hope for social and ecological regeneration through the rebirth of a libertarian and communitarian social imaginary, and the flourishing of a free cooperative community globally.
Beginning in the 1890s, Come, My Beloved describes an American family’s involvement with India over four generations.
Author: Pearl S. Buck
Publisher: Open Road Media
The New York Times–bestselling, multigenerational family saga that reaches from America to India by the Nobel Prize–winning author of The Good Earth. Beginning in the 1890s, Come, My Beloved describes an American family’s involvement with India over four generations. Touched by the poverty he encounters in Bombay, self-made millionaire David MacArd establishes a seminary for Christian missionary workers, and in so doing shapes the fates of his son and grandson. The choices made by each generation parallel one another, distinctly marked by the passage of time—though the patriarch remains in New York, the second David becomes a missionary in India himself, while his own son, Ted, goes even further, opting to live in a remote village—and these choices come with unforeseen sacrifices. Nor does their religious journey necessarily mean any growing harmony with their surroundings—something that is powerfully brought home when Ted refuses to let his daughter marry across racial lines. Featuring an unforgettable rendering of India during Gandhi’s rise to power, Come, My Beloved is a family saga of rare power and sensitivity. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author’s estate.

The following message was written for you by God This is God, Creator of all Heaven and Earth. I give this message for you as well as all thus written of Our novel in place. I first wish to tell My children that this book is not part of fictional mind. The lessons within this novel are true presents of faith given of you through My child of earth to present My thoughts of this Holy Plan. Should you be remiss and think otherwise, I will bring suffering of mind around earth through her travel of your countries to impress upon your minds how real this message will be taken by My children. No one will know when I choose this form of event to broadcast My will of your thoughts given Me. But many will fear Our course of action taken when this begins. Now I say, those of you who know Me, will give Me heed of their time and give My daughter just love of her as she brings Our word and direction to you. God has chosen to give earth a chance to change what is written in the Bible about the end of the world. This Plan is Gods Holy way of letting everyone on earth know that through Him all eternity can change. God has no choice but to give love freely to all who He created. This is how Our Heavenly Father has graced us since the beginning of time. Openly and without grudge of those who have moved against His will for their lives. Welcome God into your life for a few hours while you read His Holy terms and conditions regarding this Plan. Be as open minded as you think someone else should be to your ideas, and allow Our Master Being to invite you into His mind for a change. See what God thinks about all the changes mankind has made to confront Satan on his own and how much stronger Our fight against evil would be if we only let Our Father help us. All earth is in turmoil presently, and many people have given God prayers to ask for His help. We have never learned the correct manner to pray of Our Heavenly Father, who justifies our selfish prayer by allowing some correction made us. However, now God wants us to learn the correct terms of Holy Prayer to His being. We need not spend hours in prayer to get what we need to sustain life here on earth. But we need correct manner and guidance from God to know how to live each day according to His plan of our life. Never before in the history of earth, has Our LORD come to us to ask us to give His Soul Peace. But today with the publishing of this Novel of Main Events, God is changing the way He treats mankind for all time. We have never been asked by Our Creator to give Him this much attention before. God is now within moments of ending earth of Evil due to Satan and his fellow angels, who are tormenting human beings to show their revenge on God for sending them from Heaven. Our Father in Heaven is now creating a new world for us, where love is prevalent above all else done. We need to come to God, our life planner, for details of the way we need to conduct ourselves daily. Should this plan fail and we not live up to the course His plan draws out for us, within the next few short years, destruction of earth will begin. God is asking all mankind to adhere to this plan, regardless of your religion, background, country laws, or efforts forced against you. This is how earth will replace pain in His soul with the love His time spent with us has greatly deserved. Mankind has not given their Heavenly Father love completely as was His will when creating us. God created man to show Him honor and give love back to His being. Every time man touches against the will of Satan, in the presence of The Father, it brings excruciating pain of remorse to His being. Time now has changed, for God is no longer able to withstand our pained attempts of His form. He sees us fall into traps set by Satan, with no knowledge of this invisible beast of prey. Now God is on the at

The earth is the Lord's, says Psalm 24. God owns it, in other words. Is it time to take this seriously, as God's word does? If so, it means that "secular" is an illusion, and our traditional division of the world into "sacred" and "secular" is false. This work looks at the major consequences for Christians when we see the earth as sacred and realize the stewardship that follows. We are called as Christians to take a prophetic role in forming a worldview which understands that we live as sacred beings in the Lord's sacred space.

The opening chapter, "Background: Mahler's symphonic worlds before 1908," sets the stage for a study of the work's genesis, a summary of the most important critiques of the premiere, and a careful reading of this six-movement symphony for voices and orchestra. An appendix provides an interlinear translation that makes Mahler's superb treatment of texts accessible to readers with little or no knowledge of German."--Jacket.

Literature reveals that the hidden strings of the human `passional soul' are the creative source of the specifically human existence. Continuing the inquiry into the `elemental passions of the soul' and the Human Creative Soul pursued in several previous volumes of this series, the present volume focuses on the `passions of the earth', bringing to light some of the primogenital existential threads of the innermost bonds of the Human Condition and mother earth. In Tymieniecka's words, the studies purpose to unravel the essential bond between the living human being and the earth - a bond that lies at the heart of our existence. A heightened awareness of this bond should enlighten our situation and help us find our existential bearings.

Author: Thich Nhat Hanh
Publisher: Parallax Press
While many experts point to the enormous complexity in addressing issues ranging from the destruction of ecosystems to the loss of millions of species, Thich Nhat Hanh identifies one key issue as having the potential to create a tipping point. He believes that we need to move beyond the concept of the "environment," as it leads people to experience themselves and Earth as two separate entities and to see the planet only in terms of what it can do for them. Thich Nhat Hanh points to the lack of meaning and connection in peoples' lives as being the cause of our addiction to consumerism. He deems it vital that we recognize and respond to the stress we are putting on the Earth if civilization is to survive. Rejecting the conventional economic approach, Nhat Hanh shows that mindfulness and a spiritual revolution are needed to protect nature and limit climate change. Love Letter to the Earth is a hopeful book that gives us a path to follow by showing that change is possible only with the recognition that people and the planet are ultimately one and the same.

This is the first comprehensive and comparative study of compositional and stylistic techniques in medieval Arabic and Persian lyric poetry. Ranging over some seven countries, it deals with works by over thirty poets in the Islamic world from Spain to present-day Afghanistan, and examines how this rich poetic traditions exhibits both continuity and development in the use of a wide variety of compositional strategies. Discussing such topics as principles of structural organisation, the use of rhetorical figures, metaphor and images, and providing detailed analyses of a large number of poetic texts, it shows how structural and semantic features interacted to bring coherence and meaning to the individual poem. It also examines works by the indigenous critics of poetry in both Arabic and Persian, and demonstrates the critics' awareness of, and interest in, the techniques which poets employed to construct poems which were both eloquent and meaningful. Comparisons are also made with classical and medieval poetics in the west. The book will be of interest not merely to specialists in the relevant fields, but also to all those interested in pre-modern poetry and poetics.

A SPIRITUAL FEAST! Even as the moth is drawn to self-immolation in the brightness of the candle's flame, so is the spirit of the mystic drawn to self-immolation as it soars to the Sun of its own being. The earth ceases to exist and the heavens grow ever brighter. Words are tattered beyond repair and the spirit becomes one with the living Flame of Love. Such is the ecstasy and the passion as the mystic reaches ever deeper into the mysterious Source of all. Once triumphant in the journey, the realized souls moved by compassion, return to assist others in the upward path. Individually commissioned as the need arises, they come into the prison of this world as ambassadors of Truth. All of us are mystics, but man is an unrealized mystic due to preoccupation with the gifts of this world and his blind ignorance of the Divine Giver. We have become saturated with the world, but the true goal of life is to become saturated with the Divine and return to that home we left so long ago. Royal has been a student at a number of schools of esoteric and mystical teachings in Canada, America, Europe, and the Far East. He states, "Reading these writings of mine are like dipping your toe at the water's edge along the shore of the Ocean of Love for one brief moment; may you be brave enough to dive to the depths."

We've all taken this journey, but who can remember? Caleb tells us his story before memory is lost. His story, like ours, began outside of time and space and body. He journeys all the way from a spiritual plane far from ordinary experience, to conception, through cellular and fetal development, then ends with his birth. He narrates this story of changes, love and even his fears, through poetic verse in various forms, with accurate information, and accompanied by twelve enchanting illustrations painted by the author. For anyone of us who has ever been a mom, is expecting to be a mom, or loves someone who is; for anyone who has ever had a mom - or knows someone who has - let this little book transport us back to our beginnings and remind us all of our divine humanity.

Morya is an anthology of teachings of the renowned Tibetan mahatma, El Morya, given to Mark and Elizabeth Prophet. What makes the life of El Morya so notable is his far-reaching work in merging the ancient spiritual truths of the East with the traditions of the West. He founded the Theosophical Society with the adept Koot Hoomi in 1875 and certain of his writings are now on file with the British Museum in London. In Morya we experience the strength--and tenderness--of one of the most outstanding spiritual adepts of our time.
