Backwards: Returning to Our Source for Answers

by Nanci L. Danison

Backwards is the true story of one big firm trial lawyer’s after death face-to-face communication with God/Source about the mysteries of life and death. Backwards shatters the age-old belief that we are mere humans, that fate determines our destinies, and that a task master God demands our obedience and worship. Nanci L. Danison, JD, brings the credibility of a trial lawyer trained to evaluate evidence to her account of the answers to our most pressing spiritual questions: who is God? Who am I? What is the purpose of life? Why am I here? What happens when we die? And how should I live my life here on Earth? She offers a “life plan” from the afterlife that originates in and resonates with our true spiritual nature, and provides step-by-step guidance on how to access and develop our Source-like traits in order to bring peace and happiness to our own lives and our planet.

Avoiding Karma

by Guy Steven Needler

The information within this book, given to me by the Source Entity, is specifically designed to make us, dear readers, think, and thus, to make us change our ways, to recognize who and what we truly are, and to come out of our incarnate slumber and ascend.

However, to do this we need to be vigilant.

This is not a large book; it was not meant to be large. It has fewer than 120 pages and could easily be read in a day. However, I urge you not to do so. I ask you to read each excerpt in isolation and work with it to the very best of your ability. Absorb that which is presented to you and become free of the restraints of the physical, shrugging off karma and ascending in the process.

Eat Me: A Natural and Unnatural History of Cannibalism

by Bill Schutt

Cannibalism. It’s the last, greatest taboo: the stuff of urban legends and ancient myths, airline crashes and Captain Cook. But while we might get a thrill at the thought of the black widow spider’s gruesome mating habits or the tragic fate of the nineteenth-century Donner Party pioneers, today cannibalism belongs to history – or, at the very least, the realm of the weird, the rare and the very far away. Doesn’t it?

Here, zoologist Bill Schutt digs his teeth into the subject to find an answer that is as surprising as it is unsettling. From the plot of Psycho to the ritual of the Eucharist, cannibalism is woven into our history, our culture – even our medicine. And in the natural world, eating your own kind is everything from a survival strategy – practiced by polar bears and hamsters alike – to an evolutionary adaption like that found in sand tiger sharks, who, by the time they are born, will have eaten all but one of their siblings in the womb.

Dark, fascinating and endlessly curious, Eat Me delves into human and animal cannibalism to find a story of colonialism, religion, anthropology, dinosaurs, ancient humans and modern consequences, from the terrible ‘laughing death’ disease kuru to the BSE crisis. And – of course – our intrepid author tries it out for himself.
