The Power of Self, once natural and intimate to man speaks of the internal flame burning with the intensity of a time when humankind embraced power with a force that speaks to God and nature. It was natural for man to breathe the energy of the gods into the lungs, as the evolving of thought manifested upon man’s entire existence. Also bestowed upon man, was enlightenment, which on occasion was re-ignited to conquer and consume darkness of thought. In the midst of standing within the shadows of doubt and fear, the light that resonated inward was set free upon the soil from which thought springs forth. Within the vastness of the universe, nature taunts man to reconnect to a forgotten power, as the fluttering wings of the butterfly, soaring above the winds of change, is likened to the phoenix rising from the ashes only to emerge with renewed spirit and hope. Whispers of generations past tap into the conscious of a people connected to all that is—in the stillness of the moment, they await another sign. Foretelling of things to come within the skies, the rainforest echo’s the cries of the ancestor’s warnings. They communicate telepathically—no words spoken, the energy spoke for them instead. Connecting with nature, while giving homage to the trees firmly rooted within the earth's surface, the spark within man began to dim, the “I am” would venture deep within the psyche of man. Why and how did man lose touch with the essence of such a powerful inner strength? Is it possible to transform thinking to connect to the “I am?” The Power of Self is not just a book about transforming and evolving; this book is about intimacy with self, far beyond merely knowing self, which is key to becoming more aware and self-empowered.

Self-regulated learning is recognized as one of the most essential skills that students should possess in this information age. Nevertheless, most students are accustomed to the conventional teacher-centered way of learning, thus, they are not competent at self-regulated learning. A Self-Management Tool was developed to guide and enhance students' usage of self-regulated learning strategies. The tool comprises three components; Information-Management Tool, Personal-Management Tool and a Teacher's Manual. A quasi-experimental study was conducted to test its effectiveness and the details of this empirical research were documented in this monograph. The monograph is divided into six chapters, with detailed descriptions on the research methodology. The Self-Management Tool was found to be effective in improving students' self-regulated learning. The findings have significant research and educational implications. Recommendations for future research are included in the final chapter of the monograph.

For thousands of years philosophers and theologians have grappled with the problem of evil. Traditionally, evil has been seen as a weakness of sorts: the evil person is either ignorant, or weak-willed. But in the most horrifying acts of evil, the perpetrators are resolute, deliberate, and well aware of the pain they are causing. Here David Roberts painstakingly details the matrix of issues that evolved into Kierkegaard's own solution. Kierkegaard's psychological understanding of evil is that it arises out of despair - a despair that can become so vehement and ferocious that it lashes out at existence itself. Roberts shows how the despairing self can become strengthened and intensified through a conscious and free choice against the Good. This type of radical evil is neither ignorant nor weak.

Creating Eartheaven in Your Life is unique and it is innate in all human beings. Humanitys quest for a wholesome peaceful life goes unabated. Our search for our better self that identifies with the reality of the world we live in all too often filled with grief and stress is juxtaposed with faith and hope for change or a miracle. Do we just have faith expecting God will deliver humanity from the ills we have caused? Should we just buckle down and be practical seeking solution with our rational self? What kind of God do we actually know or are we seeking a relationship with an image of God taught to us. What is the divine matrix and does a personal God speak to us? Science stands for one view of creation and faith stands for another? Is there a joining point of the two? Has our species Homo sapiens stalled out in evolutionary development? Is the world becoming a village of cooperation and mutual peace seeking? Can we continue the way we have been and survive our own arrogance? What is the future of faith, religion and spirituality? The author in a comprehensive way takes us on a journey to explore answers to these questions and much more. Eartheaven is a paradigm of integration between the souls development and our biological body and by extension all creation. He delves into scientific reality while preserving in the beginning God created. Creating Eartheaven in Your life is a deep exploratory of the souls life in the experience of hurt and suffering and the potential for there to be personal divine human embodiment and therefore earth peace. Through ten fundamental teaching combining Jesus words of two thousand years ago, an Aramaic understanding, the authors revelatory experience in an apparition of Jesus, his 44 years life experience, psychology and science, your reading and learning experience will be a challenge and liberation of the soul. Profound transformation is needed and this codex offers the leverage needed to shift our life course towards personal awakening and transformation as well as providing a blue print for future generations. Creating Eartheaven in Your Life brings us into universal principles of life, a meeting for humanity without walls. This volume of two, addresses specifically transformation of the soul, heaven unfolding. Volume two addresses transformation of the body representing the earth and thus eartheaven. Granted this book is not an easy read but proves to be a strong mirror reflecting back to us our lives and what we can become fulfilling humanitys evolutionary life potential and perhaps vital to our survival as a people.

Intervervening in a lively debate in contemporary European philosophy, this book offers a radically revisioned account of the self subjected to experience. Patiently yet vigorously engaging Jean-Luc Marion's reading of selfhood in St Augustine, Martis reaches back deeply into the Western Philosophical tradition to propose a bold solution to the phemomenological problem of how a self can recognise an other, while remiaining itself. Insights from Descartes, Kant, Derrida, Blanchot, Romano and others are brought together to undergird an account of a self that remains itself only in ceaseless loss to necessary incursions of the other: "I Welcome therefore I am."
