The Keys to Ascension
In The Keys To Ascension, Allfaaraa answers the questions that humanity has been asking, and does so from direct experience and access to the Celestial realm (5D). Allfaaraa delivers the side of the story you have never heard. Who are we? Why are we here? What is God? What is this world? Where did we come from? Where are we going? What is a "walk-in"? Why do we incarnate? What is an "ego" and, more importantly, why do we have one? What is evil and why does it exist here? How does "the game of God" work in this world? These questions and many more are answered simply and completely, including the mechanics (the how and the why) and the spiritual and Earthly history to go with it. The Keys To Ascension explains "God's game" in this world so that every aspect can be fully understood. Allfaaraa picks up where Eckhart Tolle left off by delivering a Celestial understanding of the Earthly ego, allowing the individual to discover the final pieces of the puzzle that you have been trying to assemble all of your life. If the ego and the mind are obstacles to "enlightenment," then WHY do we have them in the first place? The ego/mind (and the darkness/drama/evil that it creates) is the driving force in our ascension. Without it we will not ascend and return to the Celestial realm from whence we came. As Allfaaraa says, "Darkness is the fertilizer that allows light to grow."
The History of Development
In this classic text, now in its fourth edition, Gilbert Rist provides a complete and powerful overview of what the idea of development has meant throughout history. He traces it from its origins in the Western view of history, through the early stages of the world system, the rise of US hegemony, and the supposed triumph of third-worldism, through to new concerns about the environment and globalization. In a new chapter on post-development models and ecological dimensions, written against a background of world crisis and ideological disarray, Rist considers possible ways forward and brings the book completely up to date. Throughout, he argues persuasively that development has been no more than a collective delusion, which in reality has resulted only in widening market relations, whatever the intentions of its advocates.
Not Dead Yet The Autobiography
Not Dead Yet is Phil Collins’ candid, witty, unvarnished story of the songs and shows, the hits and pans, his marriages and divorces, the ascents to the top of the charts and into the tabloid headlines. As one of only three musicians to sell over 100 million records both in a group and as a solo artist, Collins breathes rare air, but he has never lost his talent for crafting songs that touch listeners around the globe. This is the story of his epic career, from child actor to one of the most successful songwriters of the pop music era. A drummer since almost before he could walk, Collins received on-the-job training in the seedy, thrilling bars and clubs of 1960s swinging London before finally landing the drum seat in Genesis. Later he would step into the spotlight on vocals after the departure of Peter Gabriel, and compose the songs that would rocket him to international solo fame with the release of Face Value and ‘In the Air Tonight’. Whether he’s recalling jamming with Eric Clapton and Robert Plant, pulling together a big band fronted by Tony Bennett, playing twice at Live Aid, or writing the Oscar-winning music for Disney’s smash-hit animated film Tarzan, Collins keeps it intimate and his storytelling gift never wavers.
In the trauma center of Atlanta’s busiest hospital, Sara Linton treats the city’s poor, wounded, and unlucky—and finds refuge from the tragedy that rocked her life in rural Grant County. Then, in one instant, Sara is thrust into a frantic police investigation, coming face-to-face with a tall driven detective and his quiet female partner…. In Undone, three unforgettable characters from Karin Slaughter’s New York Times bestselling novels Faithless and Fractured collide for the first time, entering an electrifying race against the clock—and a duel with unspeakable human evil. In the backwoods of suburban Atlanta, where Sara’s patient was found, local police have set up their investigation. But Georgia Bureau of Investigation detective Will Trent doesn’t wait for the go-ahead from his boss—he plunges through police lines, through the brooding woods, and single-handedly exposes a hidden house of horror buried beneath the earth. Then he finds another victim.… Wresting the case away from the local police chief, Will and his partner, Faith Mitchell—a woman keeping explosive secrets of her own—are called into a related investigation. Another woman—a smart, upscale, independent young mother—has been snatched. For the two cops out on the hunt, for the doctor trying to bring her patient back to life, the truth hits like a hammer: the killer’s torture chamber has been found, but the killer is still at work. In her latest suspense masterpiece, Karin Slaughter weaves together the moving, powerful human stories of characters as real as they are complex and unforgettable. At the same time she has crafted a work of dazzling storytelling and spine-tingling mystery—as three people, each with their own wounds and their own secrets, are all that stands between a madman and his next crime.
Studies in the Book of Genesis
Depuis plus de 20 ans, le Pentateuque en general et la Genese en particulier font l'objet d'un vaste debat parmi les specialistes de la Bible. Les traditions qui constituent ce livre ont certainement une longue histoire que les historiens s'efforcent de retrouver. Aujourd'hui, cependant, les exegetes etudient principalement le processus de redaction entame sans doute lors de l'Exil a Babylone et qui a conduit au livre tel que nous le connaissons. D'autres s'attachent a la forme finale de la Genese pour l'etudier comme un des chefs d'oeuvre de la litterature israelite ancienne. Les articles presentes dans ce livre reprennent ces questions en vue de nourrir le debat et de faire progresser notre connaissance du premier livre de la Bible hebraique. Le present ouvrage constitue les Actes des travaux du 48e Colloquium biblicum Lovaniense qui s'est tenu en juillet 1999 a Louvain et dont le theme etait le livre de la Genese.

Josh worships his older brother, Max. They look alike, they talk alike, and they both have the same interests, including their favorite massively multiplayer online role-playing game, Genesis Alpha. But Josh and Max have an even deeper connection. Because Josh was born for a reason. It was Josh's stem cells, harvested when Josh was newly born, that saved his dying older brother's life. Now that same beloved older brother is arrested, accused of the brutal murder of a teenage girl. Josh is bewildered. Is Max really a monster, or is all of this a terrible mistake? And if the worst is true and Max is guilty, does that mean Josh is guilty too? After all, Max wouldn't exist without him. But this is only the beginning. Before long, Josh will come to a number of searing revelations -- revelations that have dire implications not only for Max's future, but for Josh's as well. Rune Michaels explodes onto the teen literature scene with this gripping, chilling debut -- a compelling picture of the intersection where science, family, and morality collide.

« Entrez, entrez dans le monde enchanté du rock progressif italien. Vous assisterez à un spectacle, sans cesse renouvelé, de la Commedia dell’Arte riche en émotions et en couleurs. Vous rencontrerez des chanteurs souvent pittoresques aux penchants parfois lyriques, des joueurs de flûte malicieux et des violonistes virtuoses qui vous entraîneront dans un tourbillon de notes enivrantes. Vous apercevrez aussi des musiciens poètes, des artistes maudits, des revenants en pleine forme et des groupes disparus avant même d’avoir eu une existence réelle. Dans ce qui ressemble à une cour des miracles tout droit sortie d’un univers fantastique, vous serez surpris de croiser des gobelins et des dragons qui côtoient sans problème aussi bien des fées que des fous pendant que des colombes, des papillons et des lucioles volettent au-dessus de pingouins. Ne soyez pas surpris non plus si vous voyez deux lunes dans le ciel ainsi que des visages monstrueux ou angéliques cachés derrière des nuages. Autant le savoir, l’Enfer et le Paradis de Dante ne sont jamais loin : c’est ainsi que va le petit monde du rock progressif italien ! »
