Where We Came From * What We're Doing Here * Where We're Going
Author: Don Kerr
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
Don Kerr • www.donkerr.com Jane Roberts’ SETH books taught us that we create our reality through our beliefs. Richard Bach’s books showed us that space and time are illusions which we create and which then reflect back to us, usually surprising us along the way! Written by a practicing architect who enjoys seeing how things go together, this book explores many areas of wonderment: Where did we come from? What are we doing here? Where does it all lead? Is this reincarnation stuff for real? And what, for Heaven’s sake, does “time is an illusion” mean to our time-obsessed generations? Can anyone help us understand any of this? And then there are ghosts, the light at the end of the tunnel, near-death experiences, possession, ouija boards, astral travel.... A lot of stuff to consider, or be repelled by. Asked by a confused young woman in the New Age section of a bookstore in Montréal if the author had any idea where a beginner should start reading “to avoid the garbage”, he suggested several titles in which he had confidence, but realized that there really was nothing on any shelves at that time like HOW IT ALL WORKS which could pull all the strings together into a lifeline. What was needed was something that could give one an overview of the related thinking of the streams—psychic theorems, unexplained observations and experiences, odd practices, the speculations of theoretical physics–which would avoid nonsensical invention. And it would have to be daring, because we live in a society and culture where we have been brought up to believe a large number of things “on faith” which simply don’t hold up to thoughtful examination. And that can be daunting. There was a time when owning this book would have had you imprisoned. It was clever of you to incarnate in a historic period when you can enjoy this speculation without looking over your shoulder! This book will try to answer your questions, will look at what we know so far, what the implications are of that knowledge, and how we can adjust our lives so that they better fit our dreams. And we can. Simple illustrations show ways to visualize several of the concepts. Written with a lively sense of humor, the text will challenge your programming, but will gently guide you to a place where you will know that life’s challenges have purpose and meaning, and nothing is hidden from you in a neutral Universe that somehow cares. You just have to take off your blinders. Life is adventuresome, and it is us who make it appear any way we wish. Choose well.
What it is and how it Works : a Central Model for Parapsychology
Author: Keith Chandler
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
PSI or parapsychological phenomena have been investigated by serious researchers for well over a century. Despite some diehard skeptics, the existence of PSI has now been solidly established by competent scientists using the most rigorous methodologies. Yet, a complete understanding of the phenomena of telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis has remained elusive for two reasons. First, a new worldview was needed to replace the outdated materialism assumed by so many scientists and philosophers. That view, “Mental Realism,” was developed in Keith Chandler’s last book, The Mind Paradigm: A Unified Model of Mental and Physical Reality. Second, a thorough review of the evidence for PSI was required to expose the erroneous assumptions that had hindered its theoretical progress. That task has been successfully undertaken by the author enabling him to entitle this book simply: PSI: What it is and How it works. With this book, Keith Chandler has now brought us full circle from the clockwork, sensory-bound world of Descartes and Newton to an understanding of our universe as a manifestation of purposeful, intelligent psychic energy. He has also finally removed parapsychology from the category of the “occult” and placed it where it belongs, in the domain of legitimate science.

"In the 1880s, the aging Browning showed once again the remarkable versatility of his lyric and narrative talents. Ranging across eras and cultures, the books here reveal his late thoughts about history, myth, legend, faith, love, and desire. He had never been more popular, and the founding of the Browning Society in 1881 expanded both his audience and his sense of his place in English letters. The first title in Volume XV is Dramatic Idylls, Second Series (1880). Taking his subjects from classical history, colonial India, Arabian legend, medieval sorcery, Jewish folk tales, and Greek myth, Browning startles the reader with the rapidity of his thought and the inventiveness of his art. In Jocoseria (1883) Browning's subjects range across time and space from Hebraic legend to the England of the Romantics. Such variety helped attract new readers: Jocoseria was immediately successful, and a second edition was printed in the same year as the first. Although Browning's next volume, Ferishtah's Fancies (1884), was so popular that three editions were printed in less than two years, this artful string of anecdotes and lyrics has attracted little favorable criticism. The materials--Persian legends and Arabic backgrounds--chimed with the wildly popular Orientalism of FitzGerald's Rubáiyát, Whistler's Peacock Room, and Alma-Tadema's paintings. But the thought was pure Browning in his most optimistic vein, and not at all in tune with the growing pessimism of the day. As always in this series of critical editions, a complete record of textual variants is provided, as well as extensive explanatory notes."--Publisher's description.
