If you ever wondered why the Illuminati, the Freemasons and the Scientologists are among the most profitable organizations in the world, and what they know that was also known by the Knights Templar, then you must continue with this reading. This book will explain why you have been struggling all your life to make money but have never abandoned the condition of slavery, working for food and a roof over your head, why one-third of the world lives in extreme poverty and why only a small percentage of the 7 billion people living in our planet hold the entire abundance within their families, about 50% of the whole wealth in the world.
This book may not change the world or anyone that reads it. You will understand from the reading why it’s so difficult for you to be rich, and how you’ve been programmed to be poor since a very early stage in life.

This is the biggest gnostic secret you will ever know and it can change your life dramatically. How can I be so sure about it? Five years ago I was completely broke and nearly homeless. Today I drink coconut in the Philippines and write this book for you, while living the life I was told I would never have.
In the following pages, the reader will receive an insight into a complete comprehension on how can alchemy be used to create a business, maintain a business, improve a company and also prosper in many other areas of life, either personal, emotional, financial or social.
One can, indeed, become more popular, wealthier and happier, by applying these principles and this book shows how this can be done and exactly with what kind of mindset and perspective. In this sense, the knowledge presented here promotes a modern understanding about how to apply alchemy to improve one’s lifestyle and mindset.
Inside this cycle, the need to be accepted, while refusing the state of being, drives many to force themselves into a detachment from their own true self. This happens for the fear of segregation, quarrels, gossips and even massive wars, pushing society towards the same self-destructive goal.
Between these dualities, we find racist Christians, xenophobic Muslims, selfish Buddhists, hypocritical Freemasons, apathetic Rosicrucians, mad Satanists and arrogant Hindus that, although not representing any truth, contribute to the massive lie in which religion has become, making the most truthful among us seem apart from the path that these groups have created for themselves.
For the vast majority of the population, still in its most primitive spiritual state, their messiahs must come from the sky, their buddhas must perform miracles, and their gurus don’t wear jeans and short hair, and can’t be born in the western world either. Meanwhile, inside this delusional palette of perceptions about what is, should be and must be, they believe to know what is good and bad, and how these concepts can be defined in simple terms. They filter their entire reality with the patterns offered to them from birth and then reinforced throughout their existence by the same reality they found reasons to justify, in order to avoid an unbearable cognitive dissonance, unavoidable when one decides to walk on a completely opposite path, a road that opposes all others and naturally leads to loneliness, suffering and darkness.
The worldwide accepted lie confuses humanity and contributes to insane behaviors that lead the wrong people to power and allows them to be heard by many, willingly obeying like sheep in the slaughterhouse. Unknowingly, everyone is worshipping the same God, and that imaginary wise, old and kind ruler, is their butcher. That’s why we can say that, among this social cattle, “blessed are the valiant, for they shall obtain great treasure; cursed are the believers in good and evil, for they are frightened by shadows” (Anton LaVey).
Along the teachings presented here, it will become obvious that the law of attraction follows certain and very common patterns that, once understood, allow anyone to gain control over life with much more accuracy and manifest any desire more rapidly.
Within such state of things, this book emerges as an answer to guide the mind of the reader into entering the storm of existence and immerse himself into the center of that same storm, while learning to analyze it, control it and use it to make changes in positive directions. This, because, what we can’t predict, can still, nevertheless, guide us towards more uplifting outcomes. And so, we don’t necessarily have to know everything about life if we do know that we’re always heading for better results.
This new evolutionary stage, consisting of positive thinking, can’t be just a state of mind, but a habit built upon actions that truly change our perception about existence, transforming us into better human beings.
Along this evolutionary journey, what this book proposes is truly a challenge, regarding reflecting over own beliefs and values, while learning to identify which ones can lead us to a better future.
Very few people know about these laws and understand how they fit into a much wider plan, encompassing world events and a transition towards the Era of Aquarius. But, the ones that do, can, not only find a way to prosper, but also understand how to create wonderful and amazing ideas, as well as profit immensely from them and from anywhere on the whole planet. These individuals no longer think in numbers, countries or companies, because they have overcome the paradigm of the masses and are now seeing things from a much deeper and wider perspective.
This book offers an opportunity to enter such realm and become part of it. Along these pages, you’ll learn about the financial laws of the spiritual world and how they operate to bring more abundance to your life, while permitting you to fulfill the plan of God and uplifting your conscience towards a more spiritual existence. You’ll also learn how to overcome the barriers that are and will continue being constantly imposed by governments and the elite in power. And, more than anything else, you’ll know which one is the fastest route to become a billionaire in today’s reality while guaranteeing your success for the many years to come.
Who we are and what this planet is becoming has been increasingly unified under the same premises, not allowing us any longer to ignore our spiritual identity, as such may very well cause our own extinction as a species on the planet.
This book provides such answers and many more, that are often too uncomfortable to discuss in public and you won’t ever hear, due to the discomfort that causes in so many people hearing it.
However, this dark side of the law of attraction is exactly what fills the unexplainable gap to why it doesn’t work on so many individuals that seem to understand it.
The law of attraction is also the law of vibration, and this vibration is interconnected with many things that build our personality and define our choices in life, namely, who we love and our perception of love, but also who we hate and our perception of rejection.
We can’t understand the law of attraction in full without studying the law of detachment, just like we can’t understand the yin of life without knowing its yang. When we start understanding how all these factors interfere with our life, we can finally notice that it isn’t our nature that changes, but this same nature that changes our reality. It is at this point that we realize that we’ve been manifesting everything all the time, but couldn’t see it and couldn’t identify it, because we were too focused in our own system of beliefs.
This book provides a chance to change our results, by revealing secrets that many books about this topic were unable or too uncomfortable to reveal to the public. This knowledge represents a second chance to anyone that has ever applied the law of attraction and didn’t felt it working exactly as expected.
Life always follows the same alchemical rules, which are explained by symbols and structures within the logic of our own planet. When we understand them and how they apply in the manifestations of the reality we experience, we can actually gain a higher conscience of self and more responsibility over our actions. And this is the attitude that will then allow much more success, as well as the courage to deal with failure more peacefully.
The opposites of good and evil, past and future, heart and mind, good and bad, success and failure, are continually in interaction, despite our personal will and efforts, and it’s for this reason that illusions trap us inside the deceptive idea that the material world and what we have represent things that remain permanent in time.
The only thing that is permanent is conscience, our love for spiritual awareness. Everything else transforms and tends to adapt according to our experiences and understanding, from good to better or worse, depending on our decisions.
A decision is never important by itself but in its relation to the outcome and the desire behind it, and that’s what this book intends to show by using very ancient religious principles.
This is a book about magic, even though it explains how we can create and observe it with logic, will and love.
The law of attraction has brought this adventure, of finding answers to our existence, to a completely new level. Nevertheless, the vast majority, despite all the books read and gurus encountered, is still completely lost and without any clue to why things are the way they are.
After decades dedicated to finding answers to all and every single life problem, including the meaning of life and death, I have achieved a ground of understanding that even I didn't believe to be possible.
The ancient mystic schools that preceded the Knights Templar have shown, to a restrict group of people, a set of rules that interact in our world to transform reality. We can call it the gnostic mysteries of life.
These gnostic mysteries have assumed different interpretations, according to the location where they were studied, becoming more popular in Greece, India and China.
They were also though by Jesus Christ, and then developed by many influential individuals in most recent years, most of them eventually creating their own religious philosophies in France, North and South America.
This complete set of paradigms became clear to me after a while, especially when I was able to close the gaps by traveling to India and meeting the gurus that could help me see what I wasn't seeing before.
Other journeys, to Buddhist temples in China, allowed me to see furthermore. And now, after publishing very successful books about the law of attraction and secret societies under other pen-names, I expose this knowledge here to take those writings into a higher ground, from which anyone can uplift himself and others.
You can forget everything that you've studied about psychology or religion, because the mechanics here described are practical and easy to apply in the real world.
If we should have a last religion on Earth, it would have to be based on these principles, because they can resume everything without the need for more answers.
These mechanics explain karma, reincarnation, wealth, poverty, health, sickness, but also how our mind and the law of attraction work.
I'm blessed enough to see them clearly and in a complete form, which allows me to reveal everything here, in the hope that you may be able to share these insights with others.
These are the principles that can help us uplift our whole planet, while unveiling any spiritual law.
The stars and the sun are the same for everyone, and so are the opportunities in life.
This is the main principle of the book which will guide you into understanding that all you need in order to transform your life and obtain all you want is a slight transformation in your personal believes.
Become, know-it and then have all you want!
With these simple rules you can actually become all you want and they are also the ones behind whom you have become.
Understanding how they work is what will guarantee you a new life-style, whatever is your present condition in life.
This book will not only explain how these rules apply to rich people but also poor people, as even a beggar can make more money if following them.
Throughout the several chapters you will understand how these principles have been used against you to trap you in believing in things that have led you to poverty such as the concept of guilt and shame.
The most powerful religions in the world have been programming your spiritual vibrations into a low level that is behind your bad condition in life.
This is your chance to change your whole life and become whoever you want to be! Take it!
The purpose of our existence in a material world as well as the reason for thousands of reincarnations on earth is found within such paradigm.
In the materialistic perspective about reality we notice a force confronting the need for equalization of complements in the path for spiritual development.
Therefore, in its most metaphysical meaning, we can perceive the concept of balance as referring to the interaction between fire and water, earth and air, yin and yang, strength and weakness, action and inaction, man and woman, conscious and unconscious, and so on.
In its pragmatic form, such duality is seen in the divergence between spirituality and money, as these two elements can be acknowledged as the lowest and highest forms of being – mind and matter, but also body and soul.
The evaluation of concepts as high and low or good and bad, however, only finds a realization in the human mind, deluded by material operations related to space and time, and unaware of the importance each dualistic meaning has within the eternal cycle of life and death.
A person can assume the possibility of life without one of the two poles, but such believe reveals false within the dynamics that affect existence.
Inside this truth, those focusing on the first stage manifestations of the Kundalini energy and the ones doing it on the seventh, both struggle throughout life and between themselves, never reaching freedom from reincarnation, even though their spiritual level may seem different.
Upon contemplating the depredating act of beings converged to obsessive spiritual studies begging for money on the shores of river Ganges, in the holy and oldest world city - Varanasi, or Sadhus dedicated to the exploration of drugs’ effects in Rishikesh, any clear mind would understand that the word sacrifice has been somehow misunderstood by those whose texts followed clearly indicate the opposite, revealing the need for a balance between spirituality and wealth, and their source as being the same.
The Rig Veda, for example, clearly states that “A combination of righteous knowledge and righteous actions help us to earn wealth”.
Never were humans intended to prosper in health, intellect and spirit or body, mind and soul, without everything that supports and promotes life, money included.
“The only question with wealth is: what do you do with it” (John D. Rockefeller).
Wealth has become the main determinant of life on planet earth and a massive karmic challenge that, if surpassed, can lead to prosperity in all realms of existence and ascension, otherwise consume everyone in the fire of desire, self-destroying the mind and mankind, and not only that, as it can lead to the corruption of the spirit in and beyond the afterlife.
When the bible refers to “the love of money” as being “the root of all kinds of evil” (Timothy 6:10) is talking about a life dominated by the force of monetary achievements, or the Serpent of Death, an energy leading all current affairs on this planet.
This force is not under control and has not been properly assimilated.
The study that this book proposes is based on the premise that life depends on the correct balance of forces controlling existence, as within this model, human beings ascend spiritually if they can incorporate financial gaining in life but descend to a lower world if failing to do so.
The financial crisis that many nations, once prosperous, face today and many more will in the near future is based on this hidden energy, untamed by any other.
The secret here exposed has been so well-hidden for thousands of years that the masses would see its revelation as blasphemy and, nevertheless, it couldn’t be applied by elite secret societies for thousands of years if not true.
Too often we approach our lives' biggest challenges with self-doubt and negative anticipations, and then abandon our dreams with regret. But by accessing our personal power, we can achieve a state of awareness, also known as the zone, in which we stop worrying about the impression made on others and instead adjust to our ideal self.
We don’t need to be better than anyone else and gain recognition or fame in order to realize how it feels to be a star. Instead, we need to cultivate our talents, our qualities and our most honest thoughts.
The author has made many people successful with what he knows and has also learned what success and fame meant in his life. He has won many competitions with his music, illustrations and paintings, apart from being widely known as a bestselling author and speaker. But more importantly, he has also formed talented winners in areas in which he isn’t experienced.
Now he presents his exciting science of dominating the skills of the most successful to excel at arts and sports by showing the common but simple paradigms and important patterns that we tend to neglect and ignore, and teaches us how to use them to empower ourselves and perform at our best even in high-pressure moments.
This book is filled with stories of individuals who deal with these issues in a daily basis. It will allow the reader to acquire an approach to his biggest challenges with more confidence and understanding regarding what to do and how while being at his best.
It is, in these coded sequences and patterns, that we find the greatest secrets to life and destiny. And for this reason alone, studying numerology isn’t only a decision related to understanding life but also understanding oneself, in order to make better decisions and affect the future and outcome in life more efficiently.
In this book, you’ll receive insights regarding why life’s codes can be found hidden inside numerology, how to understand them, and how to use them to understand other mechanisms of fortunetelling as well, while shifting your fate and determining your life’s purpose at the same time.
Although this book can enlighten any fortuneteller regarding doing a better and more complete work when analyzing the life of others, it was written for anyone that lacks any knowledge whatsoever on this topic and needs a complete, practical and flexible approach to the study of numerology.
Although these mysteries have been somehow distorted by misunderstandings and assumptions rooted in deceptive appearances, many of them were shared through mystical, selective and secretive schools, such as the Pythagorean Brotherhood, ending up falling in the hands of many famous societies, which, more or less conscious about the truth, try to understand them with whatsoever is available to allow the awakening of the seekers with higher insights.
The gnostic mysteries of the middle-east, despite the amount of fatal mistakes of the many orders that ended up either vanishing or allowing the destruction of extremely important texts from our history, did found a way into Europe, a result from which the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz represents a written testimony of such evidence.
Within the same lineage, gnosticism became part of the French Order of the Knights Templar, later turning into the Portuguese Order of Christ, British Freemasonry and German Rosicrucianism, among other orders sharing the same torch of liberty, in a constant, sometimes maniac, need for enlightenment, that rapidly expanded throughout the world, bonded by fiercely conquests and wealthy agreements.
What some perceived as the way, others saw as a meaning. The Goddess, in many cases, became accepted as a virgin, and while to many Christians she’s an object of worship, for the mystics she is the representation of the ultimate goal, a final stage which Christian Rosenkreutz deliberately named as being a wedding.
A wedding this is for a medieval mind that can’t go further in the descriptions without self-destroying itself with perversity along a path that requires purity of thought. But this path requires, nonetheless, sexual energy, reason why Aleister Crowley seemed to be obsessed with the study of it, eventually applying his conclusions to rewrite the rituals of the Austrian Ordo Templi Orients.
On the other hand, although many cultures still cannot understand the relation between sex and spirituality, in India this connection remained as clear as the need to research sex as a path to a higher kingdom, a perspective which became manifested with the creation of the kamasutra.
Although in Hinduism kamasutra is the philosophy (sutra) that allows bringing the Goddess of Love and Pleasure (Kama) to our existence, or the art of making love to the Goddess for those that can accept this perspective, in Islam this order was inverted and became perceived as the need to unite with 72 virgins in paradise.
The virgins represent the ultimate appreciation and love of the Goddess, an eternal matrimony and a climax, so profound and overwhelming that can’t be seen without an utterly attitude of respect, the same respect that Christian Rosenkreutz shown in his writings.
Beyond the mirage proposed by the Virgin mother of a savior, the imaginary wedding with a Queen of the spiritual world or many other tales that humanity has become accustomed with, either in secrecy or not, either concealed in symbols or openly shown to whoever can see it, the story here shown unveils more than mankind was ever able to accept. Indeed, this is a story about alchemy. And yet, it can’t be reduced to such or any other terminology, as it’s more beautiful than any word. This is the beautiful story of the Chymical Seduction, a tale of courage towards a wider cosmic truth that embraces time, space, energy and the physical world on earth.
This is the realm of impossibilities, where imagination is carried away by a spiritual insight, which is here referred as the phoenix.
The allegory inside this book takes us to a subconscious realm, that can lead us to the most uplifting and unknown side of ourselves, but also to other realities as well, namely, the ones that are parallel to ours, and also other dimensions and galaxies.
It is with this allegory of the phoenix that we understand the role of the dragons and serpents of our planet, and how they interfere in the Tao of our existence.
As a dance of forces, vibrations of different natures, these symbols and concepts take us to the deepest truth within, of who we are and how far can we go.
This is a book about the adventures of our soul, the journey within that so many Shamans live to explore.
It's also about a path that all spiritualists and gurus have experienced, a path that some have called nirvana, enlightenment or awaking, but few have ever had the ability to fully describe in a way that can be perceived by the common mortal.
The Native Americans have often told us about the spirit of the eagle that keeps guard over the spiritual world.
This eagle, or big bird, is representative of another living force, which is the phoenix, the bird of fire.
This is why many mystics of ancient times believed that only fire could take souls to another world.
The fire purifies the body, but the most potent fire comes from within, as an energy that we burn with our conscious awareness.
This is the fire that Buddhists, Taoists and Hindus persist in awakening from within, commonly using disciplines created specifically for this purpose, such as yoga, chikung and meditation.
This fire represents the power of our own spirituality, which most people are unaware to possess.
As mortals and genetically manipulated slaves of a few alien species, we've lost the physical capability to ignite it. But the phoenix can help us reach it, through the spiritual nature that is within each one of us.
The one who can ride the phoenix, can travel very far, to amazing lands. And these are the ones that often come back, when they choose to, as our prophets and religious leaders.
This book describes their journey to Valhalla, Heaven, Paradise, or more simply, the Laboratory of God.
Very few people are capable of analyzing these facts from different perspectives and combine the reasons that allow perceiving God’s plan, making it possible to manifest a more abundant life. Indeed, existence has a purpose as a whole and our personal life interacts within this dynamic in order to lead our soul to its ascension.
Whoever said that heaven is just a door outside death didn’t disclose the complete truth and lack of such awareness is what forces many to reincarnate several times and repeat the same mistakes despite their faith or religious practices.
In this book, you will have a chance to understand the rules that govern our planet and how to apply them in life, not only to fulfill God’s intentions, but also so that “you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers” (John 1:2, in the Bible).
A thoughtful explanation is here provided to allow meditating on why humans live on earth and why this is a prison planet, what is the relation between God and the rich, how can a person become wealthier while also growing spiritually and which laws must be noticed, kept and applied to live abundantly with our real identity.
During most of your life, you’ll believe that following others, the majority, is the right thing to do, and you’ll then feel confused when things don’t work out as planned, expected and assumed from the start, even as others told you they would. But that’s when you realize you need better answers, books, and individuals that can guide you towards the right path. And well, isn’t it a surprise, when such people give you answers that fit perfectly into previously acquired paradigms? Because, you see, life can be measured and observed from different angles and using different tools, but very few individuals can give you the level of discernment that only someone that has lived in different galaxies and has seen how life manifests on different planets, through different humanoid species, can provide you. Real maturity requires more than just memories of past-lives on Earth, or even a full conscience of the meaning of the present life.
In this book, you will be presented with such tools, but not as an imposed set of values. Instead, you’ll be guided into experiencing specific insights through direct observation and examples. This book compiles dozens of emails that I’ve shared with my students through my years as a college lecturer. In them, you will see answers to many of the most important life questions and inspirations that intend to teach how to make the best decisions in the most difficult moments. It’s a compilation of thoughts made to empower and strengthen the soul with vision, with the capability to make the best decisions possible in any give moment. And I do attribute to them the reason why all these students are today extremely successful and happy with their life. As a matter of fact, they have said it themselves in their letters, which for me are always a great joy to receive. And so, for all these reasons, I do trust that this book will guide you towards a higher conscience about how to understand the meaning of your existential path.
This relation between worlds manifests in our mind, vibration, emotions and even in a planetary scale. You cannot dissociate any of the parts and try to understand the whole at the same time. Therefore, the purpose of the information here presented will show you what ancient alchemists knew about the spirit, the mystic triangle of life, and how we can use it to form new paradigms, change our personality and attract a better future. And these techniques are more powerful when used to apply the law of attraction.
Without this information, you will always fail. Nobody can succeed in changing their fate without it, either consciously or unconsciously applying it. Basically putting it, without this knowledge, you won’t change from failed relationships to better ones, from lack of money to abundance or from unhappiness to happiness. Everything in the physical world obeys these laws.
The reason why these laws are so important is related to the energy field that governs them, the infinite intelligence that leads to their manifestation. And so, by studying them, you’ll be able to increase your discernment, become wiser, and even learn to predict the future by simply looking at the present and the mental patterns that human beings are constantly putting in front of themselves, with the words they use, their actions and their justifications to the events that occur in their life.
This book will empower you and empower your life to a much higher ground.
The information described in the following chapters will teach you how to gain control over your life, achieve an ideal balance and attract wealth with a positive attitude.
Our experiences often reflect an inner world that we can’t discern and clarify. If we could, we wouldn’t have so many problems and challenges but only dreams and ambitions. That requires a change of mentality and an understanding about the rules that govern our existence.
When we understand how our mental paradigms affect our existential patterns, a new world unfolds and that is a beautiful new world. Like the phoenix that reemerges from the ashes, the power of truth can unleash the best within us, and in doing so create a spiritual rebirth.
It often seems that changing ourselves is a nearly impossible task, or that changing our life is much easier than changing who we are as a person. But there is much more that we need to know about this topic.
This book was created to deny those common beliefs, and tell you something that, unfortunately, most psychiatrists don’t know, simply because it implies the understanding of very important spiritual laws still hidden from the vast majority of society.
You can change and then change anything you want, but before doing that, you need to understand what makes you who you are, or do the things you do. It implies an awareness about the mechanisms of the mind, the nature of the spirit and the purpose of life.
In the following chapters, you will see that any change is possible, once you surrender to the alchemical challenges needed for that to occur. And then, but only then, will you know about your whole potential and how happy you can be in your life.
Although many still believe that alchemy is related to the transformation of metals into gold, this idea was merely created to hide the real studies that were being conducted, related to power, spirituality and spirit. Studies which allow us a more profound experience related to the meaning of life.
Along this way, many secrets were discovered, such as the ones regarding the relation between the spirit and the manifestation of wealth. And these are the secrets that this book will reveal to the reader, by describing the main guiding principles behind the belief of the alchemical gold as both a supreme state of the mind and soul, but also a mysterious mechanism to attract abundance.
It is based on this belief that in the book of Christian Rosenkreuz, a reference for modern Rosicrucians and Freemasons, it is said: “Out with the gold, if it’s not the unlimited gold”.
This book unveils patterns, which, for being extremely common, tend to pass unnoticed, even though they determine our actions and even self-image.
The content exposed here is thought-provoking but will help you in seeing the world from a viewpoint that can boost your potential to succeed while contributing to build your self-esteem.
After years programming our mind with social believes, we end up accepting destiny and becoming what others expected us to be, even though we're unhappy about it.
This book intends to change that and help in recovering the ability to pursue dreams once again, by allowing an understanding on how to use specific human skills and manifest a new reality. The theory exposed is based on the belief that the true meaning of life is supported by joy and abundance, and it's when both manifest that we find our true purpose. However, for this to happen we need to recover the love for ourselves and our existence.
Within the following chapters, you'll be guided in acknowledging how you've been manipulated into poverty since a very early stage in life, the relation between your family and emotions, but also the effects of your past lives and personal auric vibrations.
The knowledge exposed is based on personal experience, as six years ago I was completely broke and nearly homeless for the second time in life, but today I drink coconut in the Philippines while writing this book for you and living the life I was told I would never have. I wish you the same happiness and wealth, and that your most wildest dreams may come true as well.
We do know that betrayal, disappointment and deception always hurts us, especially when we least expect or when we suffer them from those we loved and trusted the most. And yet, everything is seen and predicted in the stars, in their and our karma, but also in simple principles that this book unveils.
If you would like to know who you can or can’t trust, which option can take you to a better future or worse life experience, but also why you are experiencing certain things at this moment, then you want to definitely read this book. It describes one of the oldest secrets about karma and fortunetelling. And it’s so simple to analyze that, after knowing about how the method works, you will never have to worry ever again, or feel anxiety, about future events. You’ll also know which options are best for you, or which person you want as a friend or lover.
These ways or principles are all related. We can predict death with the analysis of auric fields, which are a manifestation of our emotions. But our emotions aren't just about how we feel. We tend to feel according to how we live, and we live according to how we perceive life.
Within this line of thought, even though we can't precisely say what will happen in the future without ignoring the power of freewill, as no fortuneteller can, we can work with the probabilities described by a person's state of mind.
We can say that it's possible to mention who's more likely to die in an accident, murder or by committing suicide, and who's very unlikely to end in any of these situations.
To a great extent, death can be predictable and even avoided. We know that we must drive carefully, but we see many people driving recklessly. We know that we should avoid having sex without a condom, but many still do it. We know that we shouldn't trust strangers and many people do, if seeing one with good appearance and manners. We know that we should be eating healthy, but there are lots of people filling their shopping bags with junk food.
We could then say that we have a predisposition to die, but this is also another manifestation of our emotional state of mind.
In this book, it will be described how these and other situations can be seen in a wider and deeper perspective, in order to help us predict death.
To do this, there are many real life examples that can show us the signs, which are usually known among sensitive individuals, whose skills anyone can develop.
These skills are related to the alteration of our aura into a more lively one, which may be a challenge impossible to deal with in many cases of terminal patients, but within the reach of those that still have the strength to change their destiny.
Knowledge is never as important as awareness and, along the way of knowing how both concepts relate, we’re brought forth towards our own need for enlightenment.
This is what is here proposed, a study of our own conscience, in order to understand how we create and repeat our karmic manifestations, while seeing how they can be changed in order to manifest a completely new life and outcome, one in which there is more love, health and abundance.
Conscience is what allows enlightenment, and such state or, at least, potential, becomes crucial as a tool to manifest our desires. There’s not much that an undiscerning mind can see, and yet, for the one that is spiritually blind, not much can be accomplished.
Most of what we perceive as being far from our reality, in a long distant future, is already presenting itself in front of us, in the form of those that have the wisdom we need. We merely need to recognize them, identify them and acknowledge their role in our existence, reason why karma shows itself correlated to wisdom. One cannot exist without the other.
Knowing this is allowing ourselves the gift of opportunity to be happy and see how we’ve been missing the many blessings that life has always been offering.
We can learn to apply the spiritual laws to make them work in our favor and this is the path towards such amazing and very rare achievement.
This book describes the most important qualities that make a person successful in life, while providing examples of success stories.
These qualities interact among each other to build a very determinant and confident personality, but they’re also crucial to transform our reality and future.
They’re not only relative to each person but fundamental as a support of any set of positive values that we can have to become charismatic and influential.
In respect for the wisdom that is portrayed in the Bhagavad Gita, this book intends to explain it with a more modern outlook, while showing how the main formulas and teachings can be applied to improve our life and achieve any goal we want.
The clarity shown in the following pages will allow the reader to perceive the meaning of being spiritual and encountering his life purpose with much more tools than he ever allowed himself to perceive, as the techniques here demonstrated reveal a whole path towards the ascension of the soul, followed by the most important religions in the world but also well-known ascetics and gurus.
This said, isn’t only a book that depicts a path to enlightenment but, beyond that, a route that reveals great secrets that allow unlocking spiritual doors to an unknown kingdom within us, and by which our real self can be developed in harmony. And it also allows a better vision regarding how to make better decisions in our life, decisions that can certainly and rapidly lead us to a better existence, one so obviously clear that we won’t doubt it in every step of the way but can actually and consciously manifest.
These events can be predicted by following certain very ancient laws that merge with everything else that we find in nature and within our spiritual evolution. It’s for this reason, that we can, not only predict the future, while using them, but also recognize our state of awareness and improve our existence.
The law of attraction, the law of cause and effect and the law of karma would not make any sense without a proper assimilation of how the law of the triangle of power operates. And it’s for this reason that all secret societies study this topic and keep addressing it as one of the most important, from the individual that needs to improve his social life, to the organization that needs to acquire more power and wealth. The principles that guide us to power are the same for one person or a group.
In this book, the reader is presented with ten types of triangles that lead to more success in life. Studying and applying them will certainly prove itself significantly accurate in the road that one travels towards bigger and better achievements in the fields of love and relationships, wealth and spirituality.
As an energy, money affects our emotions and the vibration that we emanate, therefore indirectly interfering with many other goals we may want to achieve.
There is a way to improve our health by following simple but precise guidelines that uplift our vibrational field, and it is revealed here.
Researches on reincarnation conducted for over 40 years by Ian Stevenson, Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Virginia, on nearly 2500 children who reported past life memories, validated the possibility of reincarnation between human beings of different cultural backgrounds but also between humans and animals.
Focusing on further hypothesis based on these findings, this book intends to stimulate the reader into thinking about how the instincts of the physical world affect our conscience as human beings.
Based on many travelings around the world, and the combination of these experiences with knowledge in spiritual evolution, it was easy to see the correlation between reincarnation and the attitudes observed in animals and humans, just like Darwin saw it, even though in his case while focusing on the physical aspect of it instead of the spiritual.
At some point, it's likely that everyone on earth has spiritually occupied the body of an animal, and the characteristics of such evidence may prevail, especially if there isn't any responsibility for our human existence as a conscious and creative being.
Joseph “Yellow Kid” Weil, one of the most famous con men in history, said: “The desire to get something for nothing has been very costly to many people who have dealt with me and with other con men, but I have found that this is the way it works. The average person, in my estimation, is ninety-nine per cent animal and one per cent human. The ninety-nine per cent that is animal causes very little trouble. But the one per cent that is human causes all our woes. When people learn — as I doubt they will — that they can’t get something for nothing, crime will diminish and we shall live in greater harmony”.
The prevalence of instinctual behavior in so many people leads us to consider different types of bestial manifestations and tendencies. It's interesting to notice that some individuals enjoy the sunshine and activities related to sharing love, like dogs, while others are very independent and emotional, like cats, but we also have a big proportion of individuals that, like monkeys, only care about immediate gaining, even if they have to take it from others, and their whole life is based on that.
It's also quite interesting to notice how affiliated we may feel to animals that share similar traits to our own character, and how much most people prefer to be led by their instincts rather than their conscience.
With these insights in mind, this topic will be further analyzed taking into consideration its implications and relevancy as a spiritual teaching.
Although this book doesn’t intend to indoctrinate the reader in the belief that there are solutions to the previous questions, it will guide, step by step, regarding finding them by oneself in the fastest way possible, in our own daily life. In these pages, you’ll realize that there are many human skills that you’re not using, many beliefs that you’re not postulating and many options that you’re not really considering, in order to compensate for everything else, creating an equilibrium that brings forth the life you desire the most.
There are no limitations to what you can get from applying the techniques and principles presented here. This is truly a window of opportunity to shift your existence towards a completely new direction and give yourself the chance to live the life of your dreams.
This book offers a way to improve how you think about life in general and promotes your success as an individual in particular, and does it by merely teaching you how to think effectively.
In order to do so, the information provided is filled with visual and practical examples and stimulation that help in seeing planet earth and its humans from a metacognitive viewpoint.
As you follow the insights and meditate on them, different parts of your brain are activated and exercised, leading you to see reality in a different way. This difference towards the majority, programmed with several key points throughout their entire life, is what will make you appear, act and talk like a smart person while achieving higher results in life and in anything you choose to do with it.
This isn’t just a book about theoretical philosophy but practical philosophy, the outcome of loving to think as a great human should in respect for his own spiritual nature.
After all, whatever the accepted perspective, none really denies reincarnation, but only transforms the way it is interpreted. To understand what it really means we have to observe the association of the purpose of life with the meaning of reincarnating.
The process of reincarnation, even in subjects like heaven or hell, comprises an evolutionary process, the result of which is a compound of good or bad behaviors during a lifetime. But both the ancient Egyptian religion as Tibetan Buddhism in its initial state, defended the same position. In all cases, the deceased was judged by his deeds in life.
The problem in the interpretation of this vision includes mainly the tendency to observe as being related to the fault. What, on the other hand, conditions us to analyze the perspective of responsibility for the act in a critical attitude and judgmental.
Can we see something more than this, something more interesting and rewarding?
If we look at life as a whole, we have no doubt that the answer is yes. A lifetime, from birth, was made up of thousands of decisions and every decision produced an effect, good or bad. And the external analysis of the conditions affecting the decisions is what allows us to consider the level of our consciousness, as well as the next steps of its evolution.
Such analysis shall allow rethinking the variables that affect our behavior and learn from these. In fact, it wouldn’t be fair to think of it otherwise, and prevent the continuous learning. For doing so, would lead us to consider that mercy is not possible in one lifetime, which is not true. Even though we may not be conscientious of it, there is always a way to reshape existence and begin to live better, based on our past mistakes and by which we obtain consciousness.
This kind of attitude is essential to realize that we own responsibility for our entire existence, as well as events, expected and unexpected, taking place throughout it, and that are deeply associated with our attitudes and choices.
Written in a very obscure style and filled with metaphors, the Vedas hide great secrets and wisdom about humanity and spirituality in particular. It was believed that those who followed the Vedic scriptures would benefit from divine protection and prosperity. Nonetheless, apart from these religious beliefs, the formulas contained in the Vedas are considered to be sacred by the Vedic religion and have allowed the development of many sciences that promote health and prosperity.
Based on these same formulas and hidden messages, the information portrayed here will guide into the main idea behind enlightenment, and the understanding of how it actually combines with many other aspects of our life, also related to our emotions, wealth and success.
With this purpose in mind, several Vedic scriptures and quotes are here analyzed, combined and organized to portray a specific message to be used within such purpose.
Although the Vedas are not here entirely transcribed, the codes that empower the spirit were filtered and connected but also reinterpreted to facilitate a better understanding of the most important principles. In this way, this book simplifies and modernizes four thousand years of wisdom into powerful chapters that can change the way we look at life and ourselves.
These are the questions that the book aims to answer. Based on the personal experience of the author and his life in different cities of the world, a deep and reflective thinking is here transmitted in helping others understand how to live life and comprehend their limitations more wisely.
The wisdom word is undoubtedly the keyword to apply here, in the sense that this is a work that teaches how to think, to recognize spirituality, and to observe life from a much higher perspective than that to which we are used for lack of better knowledge and an adequate reflection towards the most common difficulties, but also in the absence of the potential of efficient strategies to solve our problems.
This book is a reinterpretation of the upanishads, recreated for the modern world, a world that has changed so much in the latest thousands of years and keeps changing even more rapidly nowadays.
In the following chapters, the reader will have the chance to finally understand very old secrets that reveal how life works, which laws are hidden behind the creation that God has put before our eyes, hidden behind the illusion, emotions and experiences that we encounter.
Life is an adventure that few can fully experience and benefit from, but we can have everything we wish, without exception, we can be spiritual, have love, have more sex, have more wealth, have more friends, more happiness and more of everything and anything. The path to God is the path to anything our heart desires, and so, this book reveals such path, the theory of everything.
The theory of everything is what some secret societies have named the Book of Nature, the law that guides all visible things, which means that, within the content of these pages, the reader finds an opportunity to learn about the mysteries of life in a very clear form, much more obvious than any modern world religion has ever allowed us to perceive.
More than a book about spirituality, this is a book about life, success and purpose.
If you ever wondered why we are here, what is the purpose of our existence, and why do we experience things in a certain way, you’ll easily fall in love with the answers provided in this reinterpretation, because they emerge from the awareness of the truth, a truth hidden deeply within our soul.
Most people feel that they have a battle occurring inside themselves. When one side of this battle is being lost they feel depressed, helpless and weak, as in the situation previously described to me.
What they can’t see is that they can’t ever win this battle on their own.
While their inner conversations may lead them to feel that they’re not alone, and are powerful in life, the outcome is never in their favor.
The difficulty in helping individuals releasing themselves from these voices is particularly related to what caused such voices to manifest in the first place.
Usually, it’s related to a rejection felt inside the family or by one of the family members, being the relation between mother and son or father and daughter the most important.
This manifestation can also occur in other situations in which the victim feels powerless towards life.
The voices, however they are interpreted, arise with a perfect knowledge of the subconscious of the individual. And, although modern science experts may be tempted to say that it’s the individual that produces his own secondary voice or that it occurs only inside his brain, the obvious failure of psychiatry in solving this type of illness, the lack of answers in psychology, and the shockingly violent treatments proposed for these situations, should seem clear enough in showing us that we can’t trust the so called scientific interpretations.
Less known are other approaches that have actually produced more results than psychiatry, even though their theories are less accepted by the majority, due to misunderstandings related to the purpose of the mind and the unbelieving attitude towards the possible existence of a soul, spirits, angels or demons.
In the following chapters we shall careful describe the main differences between all these cases, while demonstrating why the results of psychiatry are false assumptions of any cure.
It’s advisable, nonetheless, that the reader may conduct his own researches in all of what is mentioned, because most of what is about to be described is being hidden from the public, due to threats of accusations in court and the fact that any claim of cures against the practices of mainstream medicine can be interpreted as a crime and punishable by law, despite obvious proves of the results obtained.
Many practitioners with results near to 100% success have been persecuted, murdered or arrested for their claims and practices, despite the amount of witnesses attesting and proving the results publicly.
The deeper the reader goes in the quest for his own salvation the more he will be aware of how complex our world is and how difficult it is to find a cure to this, very common, problem, of learning how to control our mind.
The implications of this fact can be seen in our karmic experiences, our suppressed skills, our fears and, most importantly, our dreams, needs and ambitions in this present life.
Talents that we manifest since a very young age, sometimes demonstrating a technical potential that most people need to train and develop to achieve, fits the explanation provided here.
This hidden source, when properly revealed and assimilated, helps in developing many qualities that otherwise would remain unseen.
In fact, it's not as important knowing who we were as it is rediscovering what we knew, because when experiencing a new life this is what matters the most.
Our difficulties, passions, needs, attributes, values and relationships are revealed through a lineage of existences on earth and not only.
Within this path, the significance of achieving a higher conscience of our spirituality makes us see that it's never about what happened yesterday or what we did in the day before that, but what we have today and was brought from those previous days.
This is how we understand, change and learn how to control our karma and reincarnations in a way that can benefit us greatly, starting in this life with what we do.
The hidden mysteries of reincarnation and karma are far more interesting and overwhelming than what most people are ready to accept and see.
To prove it, an open, direct and clear approach to this topic is shown, demonstrating how the author has discovered all his past lives and learned to accept them, while uncovering a huge amount of skills that he didn't know he had and have allowed him to become a writer of hundreds of books and a music composer as well, among many other occupations that demand a certain degree of mastery.
On top of that, it's revealed to the reader how he can do the same, while connecting the dots among people and experiences encountered in his existence.
The structure of the information here exposed enlightens and stimulates a better understanding of this topic in a way that is rarely found, while motivating the discovery of a far more uplifting way to feel life and develop our own spirituality.
On the opposite spectrum of this constant need, we have those that have fallen in love with money and went bankrupt, having their pride and anger reversed against their nature.
Many Europeans and North Americans, whose self-image is based on pride, either regarding their nation, job or reputation, don’t just suffer now from lack of money, but also depression and lack of purposes in life.
They’ve rooted themselves in the lowest spiritual spectrum and, when money’s gone, become empty vessels.
A truly spiritual individual, on the other hand, won’t focus on material outcomes but rather emotional. That’s the difference between those traveling now to South America for a better lifestyle and the ones looking for their next fortune in China.
It’s interesting as well to notice that usually the poor don’t use internet to gain information on how to create a business or acquire knowledge that can improve their lifestyle, even though they often have email accounts.
Undervaluing information seems to be the common attitude of the poor, while emigration serves different purposes, depending on the primordial mindset.
Within the current interexchange of human resources throughout the world, we can notice that the poor see only one source of income and that’s tourism, so they focus on gaining money on the only way they know, and that’s by copying what they see.
As a conclusion we could say that knowledge opens the horizons to those that can see beyond, but such evidence would be far from enough.
While the cultural background affects the attitude of the poor class around the world, we also observe that there’s a certain dependency in both the low and middle class towards the higher class.
For the low class, working means things like giving you a ride in their motorcycle, selling you junk acquired very cheaply from China or taking you for a ride in a chariot with a starving horse.
For the middle class, it means something else, based on what they believe – getting a job that pays well.
Both the low and middle class live within the same paradigm, which derives from an obsolete world that they learned to accept as real and unique.
As this world changes, these two classes become poorer and more similar, because they can’t analyze reality from different perspectives.
We have not only a disappearing middle class and an increasingly low class, but also a tendency for both to become poorer.
Despair is, at this point, merely a reflection of the effects of delusional behaviors in an economy that will persist in changing, leaving the current industrial patterns behind.
This book shows why this happens and where the money is for those willing to get it in the coming new world order.
You will never know freedom until you realize how you are being imprisoned. But this book offers the opportunity to see that. It’s a key to unlock your mind from its own deceptive perceptions and promote the achievement of your maximum potential in life.
Within the following chapters, you’ll be guided into understanding how to think more effectively and freely, how to analyze reality and how to restructure your mind into a new and more uplifting paradigm, which will then guarantee you the tools to overcome any obstacle in life and develop far beyond the modern concepts of modern human.
This book offers you the path to enlightenment by teaching you how to combine your spirit, thoughts and actions according to what ancient alchemists knew.
The potential to be famous and successful is the same for everyone. But we all have problems in the same proportion of our ambitions and dreams.
Life presents itself in such a way because there's a relation between what we think, what we believe, what we suffer the most with, what we love to do and what we feel about ourselves.
Knowing the connection among all these elements and how they interact is what has made people seem awesome.
Anyone can be awesome, live life to the fullest and be successful, but the secrets have been very well-hidden from society and even scientists.
Here, these secrets are revealed with an honest approach based on real life examples that anyone can follow to rediscover a new personality and transform the future in a completely new direction, with more hope and confidence.
What is offered is, in truth, the path to a new you.
The alchemists and the knights templar emerge in recent history as the wisest in the application of these spiritual laws for the acquisition of fortune, taking into account that they sponsored the most powerful monarchies and created the first European banking system.
This history remains hidden in symbols, monuments and religious codes, visible only to those that can interpret them. Even common words from our daily life remain codified for those using them in the fields of economy and finance.
As mindless robots, over 99% of the world population remains in the dark, in utterly ignorance about something they use every day, i.e., money.
This book describes in detail and precisely what only 1% of the wealthiest individuals in the entire world know about money and how they think, while explaining how money can be interpreted from an alchemical perspective.
True Immortality, however, isn’t something that we should be searching outside of ourselves but within. One can put his name in history through a huge variety of deeds, good or bad, but a name is just an illusion, just like our identity and personality are as well. The true and only immortal element in a human is his spirit, which by impersonating different entities and expressing himself through different souls, travels through time, from one reality to another, in a never ending cycle of life and death. It is the spirit that becomes the master and the disciple, the king and the slave, the man and the woman, the strong and the weak, the loved and the hated, in order to truly develop a clear perspective of self and learn to discard the ego, while expressing a contradiction inside the drama that is life. In this drama, some times he represents what he fears, and other times who imposes that fear, as well as the one that receives the most and the one that offers plenty. The conscience of self is immortal and never ceases expanding.
Knowing that we are immortal and gaining conscience about it is the purpose of this book, which intends to describe the path to such state of mind.
In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum.
Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

At the age of thirty-six, on the verge of completing a decade’s worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. And just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated. When Breath Becomes Air chronicles Kalanithi’s transformation from a naïve medical student “possessed,” as he wrote, “by the question of what, given that all organisms die, makes a virtuous and meaningful life” into a neurosurgeon at Stanford working in the brain, the most critical place for human identity, and finally into a patient and new father confronting his own mortality.
What makes life worth living in the face of death? What do you do when the future, no longer a ladder toward your goals in life, flattens out into a perpetual present? What does it mean to have a child, to nurture a new life as another fades away? These are some of the questions Kalanithi wrestles with in this profoundly moving, exquisitely observed memoir.
Paul Kalanithi died in March 2015, while working on this book, yet his words live on as a guide and a gift to us all. “I began to realize that coming face to face with my own mortality, in a sense, had changed nothing and everything,” he wrote. “Seven words from Samuel Beckett began to repeat in my head: ‘I can’t go on. I’ll go on.’” When Breath Becomes Air is an unforgettable, life-affirming reflection on the challenge of facing death and on the relationship between doctor and patient, from a brilliant writer who became both.
Praise for When Breath Becomes Air
“I guarantee that finishing this book and then forgetting about it is simply not an option. . . . Part of this book’s tremendous impact comes from the obvious fact that its author was such a brilliant polymath. And part comes from the way he conveys what happened to him—passionately working and striving, deferring gratification, waiting to live, learning to die—so well.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“An emotional investment well worth making: a moving and thoughtful memoir of family, medicine and literature. It is, despite its grim undertone, accidentally inspiring.”—The Washington Post
“Possesses the gravity and wisdom of an ancient Greek tragedy . . . [Kalanithi] delivers his chronicle in austere, beautiful prose. The book brims with insightful reflections on mortality that are especially poignant coming from a trained physician familiar with what lies ahead.”—The Boston Globe
“Devastating and spectacular . . . [Kalanithi] is so likeable, so relatable, and so humble, that you become immersed in his world and forget where it’s all heading.”—USA Today

Beloved medium Theresa Caputo, star of the hit television show Long Island Medium, opens the door to her world and invites you to experience her exceptional gift of communicating with those who’ve crossed over to the Other Side. The always funny, frank, and down-to-earth medium—whether she’s talking to her family, the local butcher, or the souls of those who’ve passed on—began communicating with Spirit at the age of four, but didn’t fully accept her gift until she was thirty-three years old. She had a good life as a busy wife and working mom, but also suffered from chronic anxiety that, as it turned out, came from ignoring her abilities. Once Theresa began channeling, she realized that she felt much better after delivering a message from Spirit and releasing that energy. Since then she’ s used her extraordinary gift to help people heal from the loss of their loved ones.
Theresa feels that it’s her purpose to make us all aware that there is more to life than what we see here in the physical world. She wants you to know that your deceased loved ones are safe and at peace, and that they’re now with you in a different way—watching over you, loving you, and assisting you from the Other Side. She also wants you to realize that the unexplainable things you sense and feel from these souls are real, and that it’s healthy and essential to acknowledge them.
There’s More to Life Than This lends insight on how Theresa’s mediumship works, what happens to your soul when you die, what Spirit says Heaven is like, what the deceased want you to know, the importance of living a positive life, and the many roles that your family, friends, angels, guides, souls of faith, and God play here and in the afterlife. It also explores how to safely connect with Spirit, so that you can recognize when your loved ones are reaching out.
Through Theresa’s personal story, compelling anecdotes, and fascinating client readings, she teaches us about how she communicates with Spirit and helps us to understand and appreciate the important lessons and touching messages that we’re meant to embrace every day.
In 2009, Simon Sinek started a movement to help people become more inspired at work, and in turn inspire their colleagues and customers. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, including more than 28 million who’ve watched his TED Talk based on START WITH WHY -- the third most popular TED video of all time.
Sinek starts with a fundamental question: Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over?
People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it.
START WITH WHY shows that the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way -- and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY.
Few ancient works have been as influential as the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and emperor of Rome (A.D. 161–180). A series of spiritual exercises filled with wisdom, practical guidance, and profound understanding of human behavior, it remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever written. Marcus’s insights and advice—on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity and interacting with others—have made the Meditations required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style. For anyone who struggles to reconcile the demands of leadership with a concern for personal integrity and spiritual well-being, the Meditations remains as relevant now as it was two thousand years ago.
In Gregory Hays’s new translation—the first in thirty-five years—Marcus’s thoughts speak with a new immediacy. In fresh and unencumbered English, Hays vividly conveys the spareness and compression of the original Greek text. Never before have Marcus’s insights been so directly and powerfully presented.
With an Introduction that outlines Marcus’s life and career, the essentials of Stoic doctrine, the style and construction of the Meditations, and the work’s ongoing influence, this edition makes it possible to fully rediscover the thoughts of one of the most enlightened and intelligent leaders of any era.
