Through his thoughtful writings, Grieco subtly encourages us to practice consistent mindfulness while musing about such relatable themes as suffering, gratitude, humility, prayer, forgiveness, and transformation. Proverbs and Epigrams: Brief Ideas with Great Power provides inspiration for anyone ready to be lifted up by a new perspective on life.

Inside the Book:


Title: A Meeting with GOD
Author: Mike Ward
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Genre: Religion/Spiritual
Format: Ebook

This book is my true recolection of the events leading up to the Mystical experience that i had in february of 1993 Immediately after my Spiritual Pilgrimage to the holy shrines on mount Carmel, Israel - The world centre of the Bahai Faith. My experience was so intense that it took me over a year to recover a sense of normality and be able to return to my work as a contact design draughtsman, to support my family. I had been a Bahai fo ten years prior to this - but i did not know the reality of Faith that i had been investigating at all, i was just aware of the iceing on the cake - a Religion that seemed to tick all the right boxes and had the ingredients to appeal to a wide percentage of Mankind. Until i visited the tombs of the Prophets on Mount Carmel, and abzorbed a lions share of that Holy spirit latent witin that Sacred place which soon led to a full mystical union with God as the spirit of Baha'u'llah here on earth. I believe that i was chosen for that experience because the Spirit knew that i would one day reveal the full details of His power to the world and publish the experience for all to read as a book and on the world wide web. So here you all are - read and be inspired, and may God bless you all - Michael.

About the Author

My name is Mike Ward, i am a Bahai Mystic, i am married with a family, i work for a living I enjoy my life and i am happy. My only ambition is to reveal to as many people as possible the details of my meeting with the Holy Spirit and for them to in turn investigate the truth of Baha'u'llah's Religion - the Bahai faith, and discover the sacred Spirit animating this cause and therefore become aware of His influence i guiding the affairs of humanity today, towards a global world peace and united world community consisting of all members of the global community, whatever their Religion, Race or Culture or beliefs. As Baha'u'llah Himself said "The world is one country and all mankind are its citizens". and "The most great peace Shall come!" - so shall it be. Namaste. Michael.

Book Feature: Government Control of News by Corydon B. Dunham



Inside the Book:




Title: Government Control of News
Author: Corrydon B. Dunham
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Law/Civil Law
Format: Ebook

“Because of the overwhelming changes in media within the past twenty years, First Amendment values are more vital than ever to this country’s freedom. This thorough study brings to the forefront the reasons that government regulation of news content violates the public interest and the fundamental principles of the First Amendment. A recent FCC decision may even threaten the freedom of news on the Internet.

The U.S. State Department urged at World Press Freedom Day in 2011 that journalists should not be the only ones standing for press freedom. “Each one of us who recognize the value of an informed citizenry must also stand up for this fundamental right.”  - www.misa.org/mediarelease/pressfreedom.html


"I do not endorse any author's view. I am a mere writer, book editor, and book reviewer, but I can appreciate a superbly-researched and well-written book when I see one, regardless of that author's point of view." - The Bookpleasures.com Review

About the Author

Book Feature: The Love Story of Creation: Book One by Edward Ruetz



Inside the Book:


Title: The Love Story of Creation: Book One
Author: Edward Ruetz
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Religion
Format: Ebook

A man awakens one day in a land of brilliant light. Unsure of his surroundings, he sees another man, woman, and their child surrounded by a pure crimson energy of love. He soon realizes that the Divine Beings intend to use their energy of love to give birth to new beings. And so begins an expanding Universe, fueled by diverse particles woven by gravity’s power into a massive web.
The Divine Beings empower atoms to be agents of creativity. The first beings, Quarkie and Photie, join twelve atom friends and quadrillions of other atoms who manage to create billions of suns in billions of galaxies. After the Divine Beings take the atom pals on journeys back to the past to visit other atom families, the atom friends living in the Milky Way Galaxy are jolted by an exploding supernova and land on planet Earth where they eventually create the first living beings.

During the next two billion years, they engage in a crucial mission—the conception of the eukaryote cell—which will determine all future creativity on Earth. But just as they are certain of their success, a momentous catastrophe threatens to end their creative journey

Edward J. Ruetz is a retired priest and a founding member of Earthworks, an Indiana ecological community since 1988.
