In our entire life, the possibilities of choosing to do anything at any given point of time are infinite. And it is our conscious mind that can create a better world for each one of us. But sometimes, our mind, influenced by several external factors in our outside space, chooses to do things which our souls end up regretting- when our conscious mind links us to the universe.
‘Nine To The Evolution’ is a soul-stirring book about certain individuals who despite hailing from different parts of the world and walking on different paths of life, end up colliding with each other’s destiny because of the choices they make on every juncture of their lives.
The first 4 chapters is a story based on SINS, where we witness life journey of three people who walk on their chosen life paths of ‘Greed’, ‘Lust’, and ’Jealousy’- carving out chapters 2, 3, and 4. As a result of their actions, they witness their destined fate which is portrayed profoundly in the first chapter- ‘Anger’.
The last 4 chapters create the second story based on VIRTUES. Here, we witness life journey of three different people, walking on their chosen life paths of ‘Contentment’, ‘Love’, and ‘Generosity’- building chapters 6, 7, and 8. As a consequence, they witness their share of fate portrayed beautifully in the last chapter- ‘Happiness’.
The 5th chapter- ‘God or Self Belief’ acts like a Bridge between the Sins and the Virtues, that holds the mind of the readers and takes them from the darkness towards the light.
The book is intricately designed in a way that the first 4 chapters are opposite of the last 4 chapters, and the number of pages in each of the opposite chapters are the same.
Chapters 1 and 9 are 9 pages each.
Chapters 2 and 8 are 18 pages each.
Chapters 3 and 7 are 27 pages each.
Chapters 4 and 6 are 36 pages each.
Chapter 5 is 9 pages.
This book is for every person, of any age and religion, across all continents. It is amazing how your thoughts can create the life around you. Once you know that Secret, Your Life will change its course forever.
A violent family living in violent times.
In the 1840s, the Donnelly family immigrates from Ireland to the British province of Canada. Almost immediately problems develop as the patriarch of the family is sent to the Kingston Penitentiary for manslaughter, leaving his wife to raise their eight children on her own.
The children are raised in an incredibly violent community and cultivate a devoted loyalty to their mother and siblings, which often leads to problems with the law and those outside of the family.
The tensions between the family and their community escalate as the family’s enemies begin to multiply. The brothers go into business running a stagecoach line and repay all acts of violence perpetrated against them, which only worsens the situation.
Refusing to take a backwards step, the Donnellys stand alone against a growing power base that includes wealthy business interests in the town of Lucan, the local diocese of the Roman Catholic Church, law authorities and a number of their neighbours.
In this collection of essays and short stories, the Native American author explores reservation life through a range of genres and perspectives.
In this moving collection, Gordon Lee Johnson (Cupeño/Cahuilla) distinguishes himself not only as a wry commentator on American Indian reservation life but also as a master of fiction writing. In Johnson’s stories, all of which are set on the fictional San Ignacio reservation in Southern California, we meet unforgettable characters like Plato Pena, the Stanford-bound geek who reads Kahlil Gibran during intertribal softball games; hardboiled investigator Roddy Foo; and Etta, whose motto is “early to bed, early to rise, work like hell, and advertise,” as they face down circumstances by turns ordinary and devastating.
The nonfiction featured in Bird Songs Don’t Lie is equally revelatory in its exploration of complex connections between past and present. Whether examining his own conflicted feelings toward the missions as a source of both cultural damage and identity or sharing advice for cooking for eight dozen cowboys and -girls, Johnson plumbs the comedy, catastrophe, and beauty of his life on the Pala Reservation to thunderous effect.

A chilling medieval ghost story, retold by bestselling historian Dan Jones. Published in a beautiful small-format hardback, perfect as a Halloween read or a Christmas gift.
One winter, in the dark days of King Richard II, a tailor was riding home on the road from Gilling to Ampleforth. It was dank, wet and gloomy; he couldn't wait to get home and sit in front of a blazing fire.
Then, out of nowhere, the tailor is knocked off his horse by a raven, who then transforms into a hideous dog, his mouth writhing with its own innards. The dog issues the tailor with a warning: he must go to a priest and ask for absolution and return to the road, or else there will be consequences...
First recorded in the early fifteenth century by an unknown monk, The Tale of the Tailor and the Three Dead Kings was transcribed from the Latin by the great medievalist M.R. James in 1922. Building on that tradition, now bestselling historian Dan Jones retells this medieval ghost story in crisp and creepy prose.
COVID-19 is a virus that has caused a pandemic that has changed the social, community, economic and financial references and, above all, the perception that the population has of their own safety and that of the family. Living the emergency at home is not easy. For this reason, the author provides useful advice to guide thoughts as well as manage the emotions and stress accumulated in the "quarantine" days. The paper is distributed at a symbolic price with an invitation to the reader to contribute, where possible, to the fundraising organized by the Civil Protection Department to support those who fight the virus in the front line.

The knowledge of Mind is the highest and hardest, just because it is the most “concrete” of sciences. The significance of that “absolute” commandment, Know thyself—whether we look at it in itself or under the historical circumstances of its first utterance—is not to promote mere self-knowledge in respect of the particular capacities, character, propensities, and foibles of the single self. The knowledge it commands means that of man's genuine reality—of what is essentially and ultimately true and real—of mind as the true and essential being. Equally little is it the purport of mental philosophy to teach what is called knowledge of men—the knowledge whose aim is to detect the peculiarities, passions, and foibles of other men, and lay bare what are called the recesses of the human heart. Information of this kind is, for one thing, meaningless, unless on the assumption that we know the universal—man as man, and, that always must be, as mind. And for another, being only engaged with casual, insignificant and untrue aspects of mental life, it fails to reach the underlying essence of them all—the mind itself.
