"This is an essential tool for parents and teachers to share with children whether those kids identify as trans or not. I wish I had had a book like this when I was a kid struggling with gender identity questions. I found it deeply moving in its simplicity and honesty."—Laverne Cox (who plays Sophia in “Orange Is the New Black”)
From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl's brain in a boy's body. She loved pink and dressing up as a mermaid and didn't feel like herself in boys' clothing. This confused her family, until they took her to a doctor who said that Jazz was transgender and that she was born that way. Jazz's story is based on her real-life experience and she tells it in a simple, clear way that will be appreciated by picture book readers, their parents, and teachers.

LANCE ARMSTRONG is the premier cyclist in sports history. But the road to victory has not been smooth, which makes his story all the more compelling. In 1991 he was the National Amateur Cycling Champion, and a professional career seemed guaranteed. But a grim diagnosis of cancer in 1996 threatened to cut the career -- and his life -- short. With the help of family, friends, and a dedicated team of doctors, Lance began the hard work not only to beat the disease, but to get back on the bike. By the summer of 1999 Lance was not only back, he was leading the pack to his first Tour de France win. And he hasn't stopped winning since that sweet victory. Here's the story of Lance Armstrong, from his first ride, to his most recent race, and all the twists and turns in between!
“Civilizations have been born and completed and then forgotten again and again. There is nothing new under the sun. What is has been. All that we learn and discover has existed before” (Colonel James Churchward, 33rd degree Freemason). However, “each generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it” (George Orwell, 33rd degree Freemason).
Maybe you’ve been able to somehow challenge the system in which you’ve been raised by achieving some things that weren’t expected in your lifetime while complying with many others that you weren’t in favor of, but surely you didn’t transform it enough, or you would have lost friends, relatives, jobs and even love. “Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness. A genuinely unfashionable opinion is almost never given a fair hearing” (George Orwell, Freemason).
Do you remember quitting your dreams? It was supposed to happen. Any advice received from people around you, especially the ones that love you the most, were fabricated to make you follow the same mind programming in which you and them are included so that nobody goes out of it. “If thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought” (George Orwell, Freemason), and that’s how the sentences heard since you were born, from parents, teachers and friends, as well as ideas strongly imposed by the media, conditioned the way you think as an individual.
This programming is so strong that interferes with our emotions and affects our personality. Nonetheless, within this book a path is shown to deprogram yourself, develop the power of being aware of the universal truth and change life as much as you want it to be changed. Hopefully, you’ll “stretch thinking and awareness” while “uncovering many truths” just like other readers of this bestseller recognized to have accomplished.
We’re now living in the Age of Aquarius, and “as Aquarius is an airy, scientific and intellectual sign, the New Faith for this age must be rooted in reason” (Max Heindel, Rosicrucian Fellowship). This is the prophecy and this book shows the way to understand it and accept it by alchemically transforming your conscience and spirit for the order of the new world.
Taking into consideration the amount of information presented here and the level of simplification applied, this is surely the most empowering, enlightening, complete and uplifting book you’ll ever read in your entire life about gaining wealth, power and health with the law of attraction.
While fashion magazines, television programs, and websites emphasize the superficial and foster insecurities, Sarah Stillman directs teen girls to a healthy place where a strong sense of self and direction take center stage. Originally written when the author was just sixteen, Soul Searching has been fully updated and expanded to address the concerns of today’s teens, bringing girl power to the printed page by offering young women a clear path to self-discovery and empowerment. Through fun quizzes, insightful exercises, and provocative statistics, Stillman guides young women through the complex maze between adolescence and adulthood.
Featuring updated sections on safe cell-phone use, social media, health, and gender, as well as including updated resources throughout, Soul Searching is a must-read for teenage girls.
"And yet the big questions still keep coming up. At every age we all need to know what life is really all about. Not just on the surface, but deep down.
"Teenagers are no exception. They deserve a spiritual life all their own. One that offers the kind of comfort we hope to give our children, but is different at the same time. More full of ideas. More mature. More fitting for the whole wide future that lies ahead.
"That's what I've tried to do in this book, as fully and as honestly as possible."
-- Deepak Chopra

Your amazing body can jump, sprint, twist, and twirl. Your body is built to move.
Lizzy Rockwell explains how your bones and muscles, heart and lungs, nerves and brain all work together to keep you on the go. Kids walk and skate and tumble through these pages with such exuberance that even sprouting couch potatoes will want to get up and bounce around—and that’s the ultimate goal. Studies show that American kids are becoming more sedentary and more overweight and that they carry these tendencies with them into adolescence and adulthood. Experts agree that we need to help kids make physical activity a life-long habit. Through education, information, and encouragement, this book aims to inspire a new generation of busy bodies!
Upon approaching one of their planets, you’ll immediately notice that habits have been formed out of their structures of thought, which are often based on emotions, except in cases in which a blend of cybernetic material with human tissue has led to form a new tendency.
In a transitional stage you may find these beings depending on electronic devices in a daily basis.
Avoid an attachment to this net of paradigms, which often promote hallucination and dementia!
Humanoids are naturally drawn by emotional-based instincts due to their genetic background and to worship etheric values, as well as godly images which aren’t corresponding to the unlimited laws of the universe.
This tendency creates huge setbacks that delay the progress of our galaxy.
Therefore, enslavement comes as a natural procedure of the order when the species cannot promote truthful life by itself.
Each species has its own delusional and unstable tendencies that must be controlled. This is the manual that shall allow it.
"You are old enough to learn about things," he says mysteriously. "And who is going to teach you but me?"
The old man gives the boy four days of "soul training," a time of riddles, tricks, parables, and incredible twists that brings out surprising answers to each of four burning questions about spirituality:
Do I have a soul?
How do wishes come true?
What is the supreme force in the universe?
How can I change the world?
"The old man with the white beard showed me the spiritual side of life," writes Deepak Chopra, "where real passion and excitement come from. So before you begin, take a deep breath. This story could turn out to be yours."

Find your true-self…..
If a man is going for a long journey, first of all, he must know his final destiny. If he doesn’t know, he will reach nowhere. He will wander hither and thither and lost somewhere. No matter how much and how long he tries to reach. He will lost again and again.
In the similar way our life is. We must know the final destiny of our life. There are three stages arrive in our life, first our childhood age, second our young age and third our old age. In every stage of our life we must know our duties and responsibilities. We must know what we’ve to do. We must know what we’re doing. We must know what is good for us. We must know what is right for us. And the most important thing is in which direction we’re heading for. We must know our journey of life and its final destiny.

Extract from the book:
Life is full of mysteries,
Sometimes it shows you green trees,
Invites you with its delicious fruits,
And sometimes it gets off with its bitter fluids.
Life gives you full of surprises,
Sometimes it gives you beautiful prizes.
It shows you lovely images,
And sometimes it shows you fake mirages.
In life, both happiness and sorrow
Come one after another in a row.
Life is for a moment,
Full of lament.
When it says goodbye,
When everything remains lie,
When it stops its flow,
You don't know.
What will go to happen with you?
Now, today and tomorrow,
You don't know anything.
But every moment you're heading towards its destiny,
It's the reality.

You keep up with all two hundred of your friends on Facebook.
You practically invented the word "multitasking."
Sound familiar? You're not alone. You are part of the most overscheduled, overprogrammed, and overwhelmed generation on the planet. And CHILL can help you manage it all! It's just a matter of having the right frame of mind. So relax, take a deep breath...and chill.
Whatever we thought it reflects our true identity. If our thoughts are pious, it makes us pious. If our thoughts are good, it makes us good. If our thoughts are corrupted, it makes us corrupt. Our thoughts make us divine. Our thoughts make us devil. It is because before anything happens everything begins in our thoughts. We’re made of our thoughts. The way we thought the way we become.
If our thoughts are strong, we feel strong and if our thoughts are weak, we feel weak. Our thoughts are like chemistry. It reacts with us and diffuses everywhere. Every thought impact us both internally and externally.
If we ever allow our thoughts to roam freely, it’ll lead us somewhere else. Our thoughts are like the seven horses of a chariot. We’ve to control it; otherwise it’ll start controlling us. Therefore our thoughts need proper direction and proper guidance. It is only possible through our knowledge and wisdom.
Extract from the book:
Don’t kill your great ideas and thoughts. It’ll not only mould you but it also moulds the entire world. It’ll make the great difference.
Bad ideas and bad thoughts are like thieves. They never bring you any peace and happiness. They will not only steal you but also ruin you completely.
Accept gladly whatever you’ve received from this life and from this world.
Don’t keep anything in your mind which is painful for you. Free it as soon as possible. It’ll harm you a lot.
Don’t scare of your loneliness, because it is the best time to know your true-self.
Decisions are not taken at the time of under pressure. It is only taken at the time of peace.
The great minds never sink in the tempest of life. They will always overcome strongly.
If you’re determined to approach in your life, then there is no need to worry for anything. Just go on with positive frame of mind.
Teen Ink on Bullying is an eye-opening anthology of all three players in the bullying cycle. These conversational essays on life as the bullied, the bully, and the bystander provide insight and inspiration for change. Rather than offer a cumbersome psychological breakdown, this graceful and hard-hitting book places the reader firmly in the shoes of all involved.
The stories written by The Bullied explain the subtleties and agony of harassment, helping readers understand that there is more to unkind words and behavior than "just joking around." Although many of these teens have suffered through harassment by their peers, their essays are both empowering and inspiring. By exploring the essays by The Bullies, readers will discover that the bullies are often times incorrectly labled as bad kids, but many are simply trying to fit in, despite their own insecurities and fears. While these bullies may still have their own seemingly insurmountable obstacles at home, they share their experiences and insights hoping to manage and reforming other bullies. The section voiced by The Bystander shares tales of those who have regrettably watched and those who have stepped up to help others. Here, readers will find the inspiration to speak out rather than just standing by while others are emotionally harmed.
Whether due to race, weight, or jealousy, there are a myriad of reasons WHY. Included in this startling compendium of personal stories that convey the complexity and nuances of what it means to be bullied, are stories of regret, promises, and encouragement that will help readers find solace during their teen years and show them how—as adults—their words and actions can provide strength and reassurance to others experiencing all aspects of bullying. Ultimately, they will learn to find their voices in order to break the cycle for good.
🤦🏻♀️ There are very few people who escape this physical life without having the experience of feeling like giving up. Life can get so hectic and out of control at times that we feel like we don't have any control at all. What we believe about ourselves becomes our reality; and in so many ways, what we believe about ourselves forms our future. I'm not speaking in airy-fairy, New Age terms here. I am talking about the real deal.
🙍🏻 Our paradigms drive us, one way or the other. You have to willfully choose how you want to be steered. If you are the captain of your boat called life, then your hands need to firmly remain on the wheel that moves the rudder. You can't be the captain of your boat called life if you allow other people to form your paradigms, your beliefs about Self.
Don't allow others to shape your beliefs about yourself. Read The Empowered Life.

🤸🏻♂️ Wouldn’t you like to feel better about your life? Empowerment is just a choice away. Sometimes we make major changes in life just by taking one, small step, or making one, simple decision. But those decisions are not always easy to make. We tend to cater to other people’s whim, or we are afraid of hurting someone’s feelings. Afraid to take a risk, to step out of that dead-end job and aim for something higher. Afraid to make a decision to get out of a bad relationship. Afraid, fearful, anxious. Too often, these are the emotions that rule our lives and make our decisions for us. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can empower yourself to be more in control of your life, to be more centered, to make more positive decisions for self, and to understand how the soul works in your life to bring you to a better place, always. Whether in business, relationship, or just within yourself, you can learn how to take control and be a much more balanced, much happier person.

Muslims believe in the existence of angels. In Islam there are six pillars of faith; belief in God, the One and Only, the Creator and Sustainer of all that exists, belief in His angels, His books, His messengers, the Last Day and divine predestination.
Angels are part of the unseen world, but Muslims believe in their existence with certainty because God and His messenger, Muhammad, have provided us with information about them. The angels were created by God in order to worship and obey Him..
“They, (angels) disobey not, the Commands they receive from God, but do that which they are commanded.” (Quran 66:6)
God created angels from light. Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, said, “The angels are created from light,” We have no knowledge of when the angels were created, however, we do know that it was before the creation of humankind. Quran explains that God told the angels of His intention to create a vicegerent on earth. (2:30)
Muslims know that angels are beautiful creations. In Quran 53:6 God describes the angels as dhoo mirrah, this is an Arabic term that renowned Islamic scholars define as, tall and beautiful in appearance.
Angels have wings, and can be very large. There is nothing in either the Quran, or the traditions of Prophet Muhammad that indicate that angels are winged babies or have any form of gender. We do know however, that angels are winged and some are extremely large. From the traditions of Prophet Muhammad we know that the angel Gabriel’s great size filled “the space between heaven and earth” and that he had six hundred wings.
Wisdom Secret # 1
An Undisciplined Child Bring Shame to their Parents! A parent’s job is to discipline and train their children using God’s word as a foundation. Children are incapable of controlling their flesh without godly instructions from their parents. Children deficient in godly instructions bring shame to their parents.
Wisdom Secret # 2
Self-Discipline Builds Strength! Living a disciplined life increases effectiveness and productivity. Children who practice self-discipline are rewarded for their consistency of managing themselves with excellence.
Wisdom Secret # 3
Be Bold as a Lion! Godly children are bold as a lion in taking responsibility for their choice of behavior. Being courageous with daily chores, activities and responsibilities are characteristics of children who are bold as a lion. Ungodly children are very fearful and spiritually defeated, looking for a bold lion to introduce God’s love to them.
What if your child could exchange negative feelings for positive ones?
Put on these magic glasses and see that no one else can control how you feel.
My Magic Glasses shows children how to take control of the situations they find themselves in on a daily basis. It’s a fun book with serious undertones that teaches children to notice and value their own feelings. Children learn that they are in control of their emotions. Their emotions are not in control of them. They learn to respond from their heart instead of using only their head.
Using a pair of glasses as a tool, children see another perspective and are able to make deliberate choices that feel good. Rather than reacting to life events, children learn to simply take action which is empowering for them.
Children will learn to...
notice how they feel
stop blaming others for how they feel
act rather than react to situations
make deliberate choices for themselves
let go of anger
listen to their heart
