The Hemp Manifesto: 101 Ways That Hemp Can Save Our World
by Rowan Robinson

Sometimes it is only through the pithy insights of a pocket book or manifesto that the world can fully understand an issue. Such is certainly the case with this Cannabis Sativa, as most of the American people - especially the DEA - seem to have trouble understanding the practical value of industrial hemp and the spiritual and medicinal value of its psychoactive sister, Marijuana.

I say America, because the rest of the Western World is already catching on (hemp is being grown in Canada in and all over Europe now), whereas China, Japan, and many other eastern countries never forgotten this miracle crop. Yes, miracle crop. Hemp can be put to just about any use: It can be made into wood, paper, clothing, fiberglass, canvas, twine, rope, soap, shampoo, cosmetics, oils, paints, inks, putty, and coatings. It is also perhaps the most important food crop, as it stands supreme as the planet's single most nutritious source of protein and essential fatty acids. It can even be made into auto fuel!! (Visit Colorado's Rocky Mountain Institute's website for information on this long-known property of many carbohydrates.) Moreover, hemp treads much lighter on the planet, as it usually does not require pesticides or herbicides (indeed, it is used as natural herbicide); and its fast-growing roots and self-mulching leaves can even rejuvenate undernourished and eroding soils. In effect, by converting to hemp paper and woods products instead of felling old growth and dwindling indigenous rain forests, and furthermore by using hemp to retain soil composition in areas were erosion is advancing (hemp can grow just about anywhere), we could begin to restore declining ecosystems. Without understatement, hemp could lend a much-needed hand in saving the planet. This book was a real eye-opener. In terms of price, expediency and insight you can't go wrong.
History is WRONG
by Erich Von Daniken (Author),
Nicholas Quaintmere (Translator)


Erich von Daniken again shows his flair for revealing the truths that his contemporaries have missed. After closely analyzing hundreds of ancient and apparently unrelated texts, he is now ready to proclaim that human history is nothing like the world religions claim and he has the proof!

In History Is Wrong, Erich von Daniken takes a closer look at the fascinating Voynich manuscript, which has defied all attempts at decryption since its discovery, and makes some intriguing revelations about the equally incredible Book of Enoch.
Von Daniken also unearths the astounding story of a lost subterranean labyrinth in Ecuador that is said to be home to an extensive library of thousands of gold panels. He supplies evidence that the metal library has links not only to the Book of Enoch but also to the Mormons, who have spent decades searching for it, believing it to contain the history of their forefathers.
And what about the mysterious lines in the desert of Nazca that resemble landing strips when viewed from the air? Archeologists claim they are ancient procession routes. Think again! cries von Daniken, as he reveals the data that the archeologists never even thought to check.
History Is Wrong will challenge your intellect...and maybe a few long-held beliefs. This is Erich von Daniken's best book in years!

The (New) Science of Getting Rich [AUDIOBOOK] [UNABRIDGED] (Audio CD)

by Wallace D. Wattles (Author), James Boles (Reader)

Written nearly a century ago and recently rediscovered by Rhonda Byrne, creator of The Secret

Very good audio book. Gets straight to the point. This book is easy to follow.
 I recommend this book to everyone

THIS book is pragmatical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories. It is intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and philosophize afterward. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the time, the means, nor the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics, but who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which those conclusions were reached. It is expected that the reader will take the fundamental statements upon faith, just as he would take statements concerning a law of electrical action if they were promulgated by a Marconi or an Edison; and, taking the statements upon faith, that he will prove their truth by acting upon them without fear or hesitation. Every man or woman who does this will certainly get rich; for the science herein applied is an exact science, and failure is impossible. For the benefit, however, of those who wish to investigate philosophical theories and so secure a logical basis for faith, I will here cite certain authorities. The monistic theory of the universe the theory that One is All, and that All is One; That one Substance manifests itself as the seeming many elements of the material world -is of Hindu origin, and has been gradually winning its way into the thought of the western world for two hundred years. It is the foundation of all the Oriental philosophies, and of those of Descartes, Spinoza, Leibnitz, Schopenhauer, Hegel, and Emerson. The reader who would dig to the philosophical foundations of this is advised to read Hegel and Emerson for himself. In writing this book I have sacrificed all other considerations to plainness and simplicity of style, so that all might understand. The plan of action laid down therein was deduced from the conclusions of philosophy; it has been thoroughly tested, and bears the supreme test of practical experiment; it works. If you wish to know how the conclusions were arrived at, read the writings of the authors mentioned above; and if you wish to reap the fruits of their philosophies in actual practice, read this book and do exactly as it tells you to do.

Your Inner Awakening: The Work of Byron Katie: Four Questions That Will Transform Your Life [AUDIOBOOK] [UNABRIDGED] (Audio CD)

Publisher: Nightingale-Conant

Discover the Four Questions that Will Forever Transform Your Life's Journey
No matter how much money, status, or success they may have, very few people experience true joy and personal freedom. Byron Katie knows this reality too well. In the midst of a "normal and successful" life, she was sinking deeper and deeper into depression and despair until a sudden, profound insight into how the mind works set her on the path to a life filled with love for everything life brings. Eager to help others find this freedom, Katie developed a revolutionary process to make this transformation practical, a simple yet powerful method of inquiry known as The Work.
The Work's four powerful questions and turnaround (which is a way of experiencing the opposite of what you believe) have transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world. In Your Inner Awakening, Byron Katie will teach you how to use The Work for yourself to question and undo any stressful thought that keeps you from experiencing mental clarity. You'll discover that trying to let go of a painful thought never works; instead once you have investigated it, the thought lets go of you. Eventually you may find, as so many others have, that peace and joy flow into every area of your life. [ Official Website of Byron Katie: http://www.thework.com/index.asp ]
The ESP EnigmaThe ESP Enigma: The Scientific Case for Psychic Phenomena
by Diane Hennacy Powell

Psychic power has had trouble gaining scientific respectability, but Powell makes a game effort to propose serious consideration of its existence. Powell, who has a medical degree, soberly approaches the controversial subject, summarizing research in four areas of extrasensory perception: telepathy, psychokinesis, clairvoyance, and precognition.

The number one question (and all related subsets) for humanity in this 21st century is: What is consciousness?
The ESP Enigma by Diane Hennacy Powell, MD is the very best work I have seen in this area of consciousness. Powell has impeccable and prodigious credentials, experience and background qualifying her powerful perspectives on this subject. Unlike most scientific minds in the 21st century, her thinking does not get stuck in reductionism, but is strategic in her approach to the subject. She examines the BIG picture and expands and deepens the perspective of consciousness beyond anything I have read to date.
Human consciousness is the ultimate tool for humanity's quest in taking on the mind-bending challenges facing us in the 21st century, perhaps by the end of the century, the very existence of the human species. From the current global economic melt-down, to the global warming melt-down, from the "peak oil" resource depletion to the commercialization of water resources, Einstein's relevant dictum holds true; We will not solve our problems with the same thinking that created them. Powell's perspective offers humanity great hope that we do have access to universal wisdom. Now do we have the guts to go for it! -- Review by James L. Fritz
The Secret Destiny of America (Paperback)
by Manly P. Hall (Author)  -  September 18, 2008

Drawing upon often neglected fragments of history, The Secret Destiny of America presents evidence for a mysterious Great Plan at the core of the nation’s founding.Preeminent occult scholar Manly P. Hall argues that humanistic, esoteric, and mystical orders collaborated in setting aside the American continent for a world-shaking experiment in enlightened self-government and religious liberty.

The author locates the seeds for this plan one thousand years before the beginning of the Christian era, exploring figures such as the Pharaoh Akhnaton, Plato, and Plotinus. Once hatched in the colonial age, the great experiment involved: · Christopher Columbus, who may have been an agent of esoteric order connected with Lorenzo de’ Medici and Leonardo da Vinci;
  • English intellectuals Bacon and Raleigh, who played unique roles in the court intrigue surrounding the settlement of the continent;

  • founders Washington and Franklin, who had esoteric associations;

  • and a network of Rosicrucians, mystics, and Freemasons whose ideals of religious freedom traveled to American soil.

Whether discussing the symbolism of the Great Seal of the United States, the prophecy at George Washington’s birth, or the role of a mysterious stranger who swayed the signers of the Declaration of Independence, The Secret Destiny of America is the sole volume to link together the fascinating strands of esoteric history that lie at America’s heart.

Jesus in India

It begins with a former Fundamentalist from Texas, ousted from his provincial church for asking too many questions. "If God wanted you to know about that, it would have been in the Bible, [he is told], so stick to worrying about your own salvation."
But that's not good enough for Edward T. Martin, and thus begins a seeker's quest across 4000 miles of India in search of answers about where Jesus was during the "Hidden Years" from ages 12 to 30.

The New Testament is silent on those years, however in India there is an ancient tradition that young Jesus joined a caravan and took the Silk Road to the East, where He lived with both Hindus and Buddhists before returning to begin His ministry. To what extent are these traditions based on evidence, and why does the "Pope" of Hinduism now insist that Jesus was in India? Why does Professor Elaine Pagels of Princeton University, a world-renowned Biblical scholar, say we cannot rule this out? Scholars and religious authorities are joined in this film by the Dalai Lama and an Apostolic Nuncio of Pope John Paul II. You will hear all sides, and you will be shocked and surprised by some of the answers offered for the Bibles silence about JESUS IN INDIA.

The History Channel Modern Marvels Machu Picchu

It is perched on a mountain ridge in the Andes, 1,600 feet above a river valley - and 8,000 feet above sea level. A city of stone built without mortar, the wheel, or iron tools, it is so perfectly constructed that the thinnest knife blade cannot fit between the joints in the massive granite blocks that make up most of the structures. But why was it built? And why was it abandoned, apparently only a couple hundred years after it was built?

Head high into the Andes to explore the mysterious cloud city of the Inca, and meet the archeologists and scholars who are leading the efforts to reveal its many secrets. Well above the surrounding cloud forest, Machu Picchu likely had no commercial, military or administrative use, but many theorists now believe that it was a royal estate and religious retreat, and we'll examine the evidence that points to this conclusion.
The Secret of the Great Pyramid: How One Man's Obsession Led to the Solution of Ancient Egypt's Greatest Mystery (Hardcover)
by Bob Brier (Author), Jean-pierre Houdin (Author) -- Oct 2008

Photos and computer-generated graphics illustrate the authors’ explanation of designs and building processes, in the course of which they describe defects in the theories that the ramp was a mile-long straightaway or an external corkscrew. Houdin adopted an inspiration of his father’s, that the ramp was indeed a corkscrew, but one that rested inside the pyramid. His search for supporting evidence, culminating in a public presentation of his theory in 2007, fills out a book to fascinate pyramid fans.

From Publishers Weekly
Since its construction 4,500 years ago for Pharaoh Khufu, the Great Pyramid of Giza has remained an engineering mystery. According to Egyptologist Brier (The Murder of Tutankhamen) and architect Houdin, the monument was designed by Khufu's brother Hemienu, an architectural genius, and built in two decades by 25,000 paid Egyptian construction workers. Having studied the structure minutely and using computer graphics to visualize every aspect of the pyramid and its construction, Houdin offers a radical proposal of how the huge limestone and granite blocks were raised: the pyramid was built from the inside out around a mile-long ramp corkscrewed up to the top, which remains in the pyramid's walls. The authors' prose is lucid, aided by drawings and photos, and the theories are intriguing but inconclusive until permission can be obtained from Egyptian authorities to thermally photograph the pyramid and determine its internal structure. The highly technical nature of some of the architectural and engineering material makes this book more suitable for experts in archeology and architecture than for buffs. (Oct.)

11:11 the Time Prompt Phenomenon: The Meaning Behind Mysterious Signs, Sequences, and Synchronicities

Right on cue best-selling author Marie D. Jones and renowned paranormal researcher Larry Flaxman release their new title "11:11 The Time Prompt Phenomenon: The Meaning Behind Mysterious Signs, Sequences and Synchronicities" just months before the film "Knowing" (March 20 release) starring Nicholas Case is scheduled to debut. This blockbuster movie is a disaster film centered on number sequences and synchronicities.  With Hollywood on board now, numeric phenomena and eerie coincidences will be in the minds of millions in the coming months. Flaxman and Jones pack into their timely book the most current data about mysterious numbers and strange sequences that are currently being reported by people around the world--in particular the numbers 11:11.

Is it happening to you? You wake up at night, look at the clock, and notice that it is 11:11 p.m. This happens again the next night, and the next. You think it is a coincidence, but what if you were to discover that it was happening to others--possibly millions of others--all over the world?

And that it meant something...something important?

The reports of people noticing strange and repeated associations with the number 11 are on the rise, prompting theories connecting this phenomenon with the coming Mayan calendar end date of 12/21/2012. But it's not just the number 11 that is showing up in people's lives, it is often accompanied by unusual events or profound insights.

Mysterious numbers and strange sequences appear throughout the history of human experience. What do they mean? What secrets do they keep? Are these wake-up calls to a higher state of consciousness, triggers of paranormal experiences, or the activation of what some scientists refer to as "junk DNA"?

In this fascinating new work, you'll learn about:

  • Number-based patterns in nature--such as the Fibonacci spiral, the golden ratio, and DNA sequences--and the secrets of sacred geometry.

  • Synchronicity: The science behind coincidences and what they might be trying to tell us.

  • How the entire universe can be condensed into a handful of mathematical numbers and equations.

  • The power of numerology in human lives.

  • Is God a number? How numbers relate to the creative force behind all reality.

We live according to times, dates, and numbers, and 11:11 The Time Prompt Phenomenon will explore the mysteries of 11:11 and the many other ways in which numbers compose the very foundation of our reality.

An Ancient World in Chaos (God King Scenario)
By Gary Gilligan

ISBN: 1906510008
Published: 15 February 2008

The catastrophism theories in Immanuel Velikovsky's 1950s book World in Collision have been vigorously rejected or ignored by the academic community. Yet setting aside the finer details of what happened and when, is it possible that Velikovsky was correct in his basic premise of recent upheaval in the solar system? Is it feasible that Mars and Venus came close to the Earth only a few thousand years ago, causing global disturbances?

Gary Gilligan thinks so, and in furthering Velikovsky's work he presents a fascinating model whereby Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Moon played havoc with Earth for an incredible 3000 years. In this fascinating book, he discusses how these bodies moved back and forth to Earth numerous times and came so close as to loom larger than the Sun.

Incredible claims, but under no illusion, this is not just another "wacky" theory in support of planetary chaos, for unlike Velikovsky Gilligan steers clear of the surreal stuff of mythology, the means which most catastrophists use to promote their ideas. He uses ancient history to prove his thesis.

Delving into the most fascinating civilisations of ancient times, the Ancient Egyptians, this book presents the the most outrageous and incredible proposal that the Egyptian God Kings, the Pharaohs, were first and foremost names given to Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Moon as they moved back and forth to Earth in a constant cycle of death and rebirth. They were in the second instance represented here on Earth via human 'doubles' - human pharaohs who were believed to be 'at one' with celestial God King planets.

If correct, this book has the potential to change the course of history.

From the Author

Overwhelming support for my synopsis 'The God King Scenario' (GKS) comes to us via the archaeological evidence, more specifically the lack of it, as follows...

In the face of the many hundreds of military expeditions carried out by the Pharaohs archaeologists have been unable to verify ANY of the events recounted in Egyptian records. This situation exists even though the location of Egypt's numerous conflicts are known. We would expect to find the remains of swords, arrow heads, battle axes, chariot parts, amour, and more importantly battle-scarred human remains or mass graves. However, there is a distinct lack of archaeological evidence and no data to support the existence of ancient battlefields. Upon close scrutiny, it becomes very obvious that the wars and battles of the kings exist in `sacred' words alone - that is of course, unless we look up and take into account the GKS.
