Nina has infiltrated the home of investor Anton Lakitos, seeking to stop his plans of taking over her father's company. She waits for him in secret, and Anton, drunk from the night's festivities, drags her into his very own bed! As Nina feels his hot hands caress her, she becomes captive to sensations she's never experienced. "But I have a fianc?!" As Anton shakes off the veil of alcohol and realizes who his partner is, ignoring her distress, he lays down an even more fiendish demand. "The reason I financed your father was because I wanted you. If I can't have my money returned, then I will marry you instead."

Our hearts as women were made by God for relationships. Why is it, then, that the thing we most deeply desire—relationships—becomes the source of so much pain? Difficult marriages, the loneliness of being single, problem children, abusive employers, fractured's realities are often very different from the dreams we dreamed for ourselves as girls. How do we live with this beautiful ache for relationships in a world that doesn't always work?When we've been betrayed, how do we trust again? When we've been disappointed, how do we hope again? When we've been terribly hurt, how do we love again?In this honest, intimate, and transformative book, counselor Sharon Hersh helps you gain a new, truly biblical perspective on relationships that can help you endure the heartaches and still come up living wholeheartedly, loving with abandon, and daring to hope and believe. The stories of the women in this book, including that of the author, are signposts that point you beyond the sometimes devastating problems of life to the deep, rich reason and root of all relationships, both good and bad: God's desire for relationship with you.In Sharon's words, “Relationships are not the destination—they are the path to something more.”

Chögyam Trungpa's unique ability to express the essence of Buddhist teachings in the language and imagery of modern American culture makes his books among the most accessible works of Buddhist philosophy. Here Trungpa explores the true meaning of freedom, showing us how our preconceptions, attitudes, and even our spiritual practices can become chains that bind us to repetitive patterns of frustration and despair. This edition features a new foreword by Pema Chödrön, a close student of Trungpa and the best-selling author of When Things Fall Apart.

In 1905 Einstein found from relativity that there is an impenetrable light barrier. He reiterated this "finden" in 1916, writing, "...We conclude that in the theory of relativity the velocity c plays the part of a limiting velocity, which can neither be reached nor exceeded by any real body." Poincare and Lorentz did not share Einstein's view. Then in a 1921 lecture and a 1922 book, "Sidelights on Relativity," Einstein wrote (pp. 35-6), "Poincare is right. The idea of the measuring-rod and the idea of the clock coordinated with it in the theory of relativity do not find their exact correspondence in the real world." Thus the light barrier was questioned by the same man who erected it, and the last theoretical obstacle to practical star travel was lifted; but few noticed. Fifty years later Mendel Sachs wrote about Einstein's "change of mind," again in 1985, 1993, and at other times; but Sachs' writings were scorned. The first author became aware of Sachs' writings in 2004 and the two exchanged views for a time. This book presents a hard-science case for practical star travel. The first six chapters lay it all out in a logical and factual manner consistent with the theory of relativity. Chapters 7 and 8 outline a "Grand Experiment" designed to probe the light barrier. Chapters 7-9 contain future-fiction accounts of possible scenarios of Humanity's first swaddling steps to the stars. Chapter 10 presents a separate argument questioning the idea of an absolute light barrier.

In 1905 Einstein found from relativity that there is an absolute lightbarrier. He reiterated his ¿finden¿ in 1916, writing, ¿¿We conclude that in thetheory of relativity the velocity c plays the part of limiting velocity, which canneither be reached nor exceeded by any real body.¿ Poincaré and Lorentz didnot share Einstein¿s view of relativity in that regard. Nor, later, did Fermi andTeller it seems. There were others who hesitated to come forward. Then in a1921 lecture and a 1922 look, ¿sidelights on Relativity,¿ Einstein wrote (pp. 35-6), ¿Poincaré is right. The idea of the measuring-rod and the idea of the clockco-ordinated with it in the theory of relativity do not find their exactcorrespondence in the real world.¿Thus the light barrier was questioned by the same man who erected it, andthe last theoretical obstacle to practical star travel was mortally wounded butfew noticed. There is still a conditional light barrier, but no longer one that isimpenetrable. It became clear that the second postulate of special relativity doesnot equate to an absolute light barrier as many continue to believe even to thisday; some highly-regarded scientists continue to subscribe to this faulty logic:¿I believe that special relativity is correct and consequently exceeding thespeed of light [by] (just accelerating more and more) is impossible,¿¿Don Lincoln, Fermilab, email dated 3 Feb. 2005.Such statements reflect a misunderstanding of the second postulate. The key isthat the second postulate applies to photons but not to rocketships; rocketshipsare not macrophotons as Sachs pointed out.In the September 1971 issue of the journal ¿Physics Today¿ MendelSachs wrote about Einstein¿s 1921-22 ¿change of mind¿ as he referred to it,again in 1985, 1993 and at other times; but Sachs¿ writings were scorned byother scientists. It was as if others wanted there to be a truly impenetrable lightbarrier perhaps because it seemed to hold open the exciting promise of timetravel. The first author became aware of Sachs¿ writings in 2004 and the twoexchanged views for a time as reported here.This book presents a hard-science case for practical star travel.

Originally published in 1976, this book discusses the formation and beginning of psychotherapy groups and examines the treatment of a number of social problems through group therapy. Inevitably a product of the time in which it was written, this book nonetheless makes a valuable contribution to the history of group psychotherapy and will still be of interest to group psychotherapists, psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, social scientists, social workers and group managers today.

The true reason for Man's existence is well beyond anything he might think or imagine. This is a young man's account of his quest for the Truth and his encounter with Alfredo, a contemporary Master teaching in the West.Far beyond any sect, religious system or crystallized organization, the true "seeker" will find in this book the possibility to establish contact with a "living" and essential teaching. Since the appearance of Man on Earth, what is called the "Work" began which is part of a "Design" for the evolution of our planet and Universe. Masters have existed and exist until today to assist Humankind to develop in harmony with this evolutionary process. They generally work in anonymity in moments of major crisis and need, totally unnoticed by the vast majority of people. These Masters represent the "Door" to the "Way of Truth"."Many are the paths, but the truth is only one Way, and those who walk along it are few. They pass by without being noticed, their goal ignored, but slowly and firmly they keep on moving forward. Men do not know why they have been created, and the majority of them does not see the Way of Truth."

The first 6 chapters deal with standard GW topics. In Chapter 1 I define "our environment." Chapter 2 quantifies world energy use in the 20th and 21st centuries. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 relate to energy required in heating the Earth's atmosphere, water, and to melt all the planet's ice, respectively. Chapter 6 covers sea level rise as ice melts.(Final level and time to reach it) Chapter 7 diverges from ordinary GW topics. There I estimate the energy stored in the Earth's 2 metal cores, 1 solid and 1 liquid. Furthermore, in the lower mantel is stored more than in the 2 metal cores, and in the upper mantel there is a similar amount. This means that more than 2/3 of the internal heat is stored in the mantels. Its thermal interaction with the surface is very significant. In Chapters 8, 9, and 10 I present a different theory of global warming incorporating Earth's interior energy. In Chapter 8 there is a 400,000-year graph showing climate history as it pertains to CO2 (carbon dioxide) concentration and temperature. The new theory is strongly supported by the close connection between the two, especially during GW. Chapter 9 shows a massive increase in worldwide flooding over the last 22 years. Chapter 10 discusses more aspects of the graphs presented in chapter 7. It connects flood data of Chapter 9 with the new theory. Chapter 11 compares climatic numbers with very large numbers in common use. Chapter 12 addresses climate control. Chapter 13 covers some odds and ends not yet discussed, but that may be among people's concerns. Some very different ways of looking at GW concepts are stated. Chapter 14 is the conclusion, which briefly summarizes the new theory. It offers a solution to reducegreatly or stop our contribution to global warming.

The Sermon on the Mount is very much more than a sermon. Mr. Davis argues that it characterizes the core principles for those who would be disciples of Christ. Specifically, The Sermon on the Mount argues that its thesis is that God calls people to voluntarily repent of sins and too voluntarily accept the responsibility for complying with what Jesus calls the righteousness that surpasses the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees apart from which no one can expect to attain to the Kingdom of Heaven. Davis argues that the application of Christs principles is grounded in the fundamental reality that Sin is inherently dysfunctional and the only remedy is repudiating dysfunction and complying with holiness. Davis further argues that to comply with holiness must begin in character transformation such that the Kingdom disciple performs righteous deeds from a righteous character.

Passionate Joy connects the psychological and spiritual understanding of our least discussed human emotion. This book reflects the dawn of a revolutionary approach to living. Norman Vincent Peale anointed Jim McReynolds as minister of joy to the world. The most important characteristic of a minister of joy is humility. This book teaches people the purpose of our lives is to create an atmosphere for joy and miracles to happen. Life is difficult. Building a wealth of joy enables us to know happiness. Readers will enter the joy of the Lord as they reflect upon their own joy. This book can be used as a text for study groups. Questions for reflections are included at the end of each chapter. This book was envisioned during studies at Vanderbilt University and the University of Oxford in England. The material has been shared during a lifetime of weekend retreats, conferences, and seminars for churches, schools, workplaces, and community groups.
