    Excerpt: 
    `Life rolls along, it seems, throwing punches and presenting prizes, often when we least expect it. A fire combusts in our backyard or a heart-warming package arrives at our doorstep. Our child dies in an accident or we are pregnant at long last. We are diagnosed with cancer or a loved one survives impossible circumstances. 
    The seeming randomness of such events might be perceived as unfair or lucky. Or the seeming deliberation of fate exacting these occurrences might be seen as punishment or reward. Or the finality of such happenings might be interpreted as a forsaking of, or a miracle of--God. 
    'No matter which way the positive and negative events in our lives are viewed, we are often left with a sense that we are at life's mercy. Even if we do everything in our power to control our environment and the people around us, so that `bad things' can't happen--the yard can still burst into flames, the child can still die, and we can still be diagnosed with cancer. 
    'This helpless feeling often generates anxiety and depression. It can fuel obsessive compulsions, neurosis, hysteria, paranoia, agoraphobia, and emotional paralysis. In an effort to quell the uneasiness, people often become excessive in their behavior and develop addictions to alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, gambling, television, virtual reality games, chronic exercise, or even work. They might become spend thrifts or misers, overeat or under eat. To guard vulnerability, people might chronically lie, cheat, brag, deny, complain, or blame. 
    'But what if our life events were not random or the result of punishment or reward, betrayal or miracle? What if there was rhyme and reason for every single event in our lives? The yard catching fire might be about instilling caution to avoid a future fire that would be far worse. Our child dying might be about a new adventure for her while gifting us with a needed set-up to fulfill our current life intent. A cancer diagnosis might be about triggering a sequence of events whereupon we must value ourselves enough to extract hidden inner strength, setting us on course to fulfill our life intent.

    The Diaper-Free Baby

    Imagine infants free from painful diaper rash, new parenthood without thousands of dollars wasted in diapering costs, toilet training that is natural and noncoercive, and, most important, happier babies and parents 
    As Christine Gross-Loh reveals in her progressive, enlightening book, all this is possible and more. Infants are born with the ability to communicate their need to "go," just as they communicate hunger or sleepiness. Gross-Loh, a mother of two children who were diaper-free at eighteen and fifteen months, uses the tenets of "elimination communication," or EC, to teach parents how to identify and respond to their baby or toddler's natural cues.  
    Unlike the all-or-nothing approach of some parenting books, The Diaper-Free Baby addresses three categories of parents: full-time, part-time, and occasional EC'ers. Parents can practice EC as much or as little as fits their family and lifestyle. A support group within a book, The Diaper-Free Baby also includes inspiring testimonials throughout every chapter. Parents who have successfully practiced EC identify common struggles, share experiences and problem-solving tips, and provide encouragement for those new to the technique. Their motivational stories together with Gross-Loh's practical advice will appeal to all parents interested in a fresh alternative to traditional toilet training.

    This eBook edition of "Telepathy (Theory, Facts & Proof)" has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
    
    Extract:
    
    “Many persons who are interested in the phenomena of Telepathy, and who accept the proofs offered by its advocates, seem to regard these phenomena as quite ordinary and as fully in accord with the more familiar manifestations of Nature's forces. We frequently hear Telepathy compared to the manifestation of electricity, particularly in the phase of wireless telegraphy. But the matter is not so simple as this—it cannot be lightly dismissed or placed in any ordinary category. It is, scientifically, sui generis—in a class by itself; unique; peculiar. While we shall not attempt to put forward any special hypothesis at this point, we invite you to consider the following statement from the lips of an eminent English statesman, himself an earnest investigator of Telepathy. After reading his statement, you will begin to appreciate the full nature of the problem confronting those who, while admitting the proofs of Telepathy, would seek to account for the same by scientific principles.” 
    
    William Walker Atkinson (1862-1932) was a prolific writer. His works treat themes related to the mental world, occultism, divination, psychic reality, and mankind's nature. They constitute a basis for what Atkinson called "New Psychology" or "New Thought".

    Born under a bad sign? Of course you were, we all were. In this case Scorpio the Scorpion the zodiac’s frankly scary power-obsessed sex UXB. Everyone knows their bright starry self, but the Darkside Zodiac reveals what you are like on the bad days. Although in your case Scorpio, the thin line between bright and dark is, well, very thin, although the rest of the zodiac would never actually tell you that, at least not to your face.    
    * Bitch factor? You got it. 
    Likewise
    * Annoying habits 
    * Deadly sin of choice 
    * Your love life. Hah. 
    * Your criminal career 
    * Your road rage
    
    Plus clever charts showing just how incompatible you are with everybody else in every conceivable aspect of life. Of course it’s not your fault. It never is. Find out which planet/s is/are responsible for your cosmic awfulness, and blame it/them. And you get to find out who famously shares your sector of the darkness, just so you have a role model if you begin to stray towards the light.  
    Until now only available to the discerning in tree-based form, the darkside has gone e-side so you can read all about your dark self without having to lift a finger to turn the page. Buy one for yourself (and wallow in delicious shame) or, even better, for your friends/enemies/frenemies/office nemesis and send it to them anonymously. That would be very darkside.
