Summary

A treasury of motivational anecdotes from people who wanted another chance at something good—and took it. 
 
The book collects the hopeful examples of people who found a leg up, another spurt of energy, a hidden talent, or even an untapped strength, sometimes with the unexpected help of friends or strangers, to make a happier life for themselves. It’s the big stuff like going back to college after the kids have grown up, as well as the little things like getting a judo belt when you thought you could hardly manage a push-up.  
 
From the author of One Good Deed, Like My Mother Always Said, and other entertaining and motivating volumes, this book is an inspiring guide to letting the future win over the past.
Available since: 04/11/2017.
Print length: 146 pages.

    Allow Yourself To Know How To Find Love Online And Nurture It With The Stories In This Book! 
    Perhaps in efforts to tame her rebelliousness, Marie's mom takes her to her aunt's place to spend the summer. Without any friends there, Marie is prepared to have one of the most boring summers of her life. 
    So her aunt, Clarissa sends Marie to the store for a pack of headache pills. After making the purchase, she gets lost, and without anyone to help her but a dead cell phone, she decides to sit on a bench and drink her coke, absentmindedly waiting to see someone who can help her find her way back. 
    After 20 minutes, she notices a large, 6'4, dark, very good looking blonde. 
    "Hey, umm… can you recollect this face?" Marie asks him creepily when he gets close enough. 
    "Tinder App, Marie?" 
    "Oh yeah sure. Now I do! Marie Curie…the minor?" he replies, smiling. 
    Amid her excitement, Marie asks him to help her find her way back to her aunt's, giggling. 
     "I can show you if you want." 
    "Oh brilliant, thanks." Marie replies ecstatically, as though that's the line she's been waiting from him all her life. 
    By the time they arrive at Aunt Clarissa's house, Marie has already done everything possible to contain herself in his presence. Her heart races and butterflies fill up her stomach -and she is excited not because of the fact that she's finally met an incredible handsome guy who wanted to hang out with her, but because she'd found a new friend. 
     "How about we see each other tonight?" He asks… 
    That's how their love story unfolds all thanks to the power of technology. 
    And this could be your story, maybe in a different version but all made possible thanks to the power of the internet. 
    And by virtue that you are reading this, it is clear you have growing interest in venturing into online dating but have lots of questions in which you are seeking answers to….

    At some point in our lives, we may ask ourselves the questions who am I? Why am I here? Out of Body Into Life is a detailed account of some of the answers to these questions, that led Kwame Adapa to realize the spiritual reality of human experience. Through out of body travel, also known as astral projection, Kwame explored the regions that human souls go to after passing through death. He also found answers to who he is as a soul, what ancient civilizations lie within the Earth’s caverns and about nature spirit entities that cohabit our planet. Beyond Earth, Kwame was able to journey to other star systems and to learn for himself the truth about the existence of life elsewhere in the galaxy. The book details 30 journeys at The Monroe Institute, and over 60 conscious out of body projections. Out of body and into Life also includes a description of the subtle realms of reality and provides methods and step-by-step instructions for how to achieve an out of body projection. By reading this book, you too can learn more about the greater reality that can be perceived via the phenomenon of out of body projection, some of what lies beyond the five physical senses, and a few methods you can follow if you also choose to how to project out of body to obtain your own experiences.
