Getting Started Congratulations on your courage to open this book! No matter when you were diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), you’ll find remarkable information within these pages. You can use it to start feeling better today – as I have done. Not sure you have PTSD or DID? Please read this entire chapter. It has definitions for PTSD/DID – and much more. Then decide if you’d like to read further. If you don’t have PTSD or DID but survived or witnessed a trauma (serious illness, violence, significant loss, etc.), you’re welcome here, too. This book is geared to assist anyone with the aftershocks of surviving or witnessing trauma - whether the person has diagnostic labels or not. If you’re a person of color or in an oppressed group, (gay, non-Christian, etc.), this book can be valuable. Even if your group’s most obvious oppression occurred generations before you were born, that oppression can traumatize you. For example, Drs. Eduardo and Bonnie Duran investigated “multi-generational PTSD” affecting present-day Native Americans that originates from the g...

War on Porn : Prepare Your Mind for Battle: Prepare Your Mind for Battle

By: Luke Knight

You know you have a porn problem but you can't seem to find the motivation to deal with it. This book can help you move from contemplation to action. Over 300 questions to reflect on, bringing you face-to-face with the consequences of your porn viewing. This book is a a companion to Porn Escape: Confidently Walk Away from the Prison of Pornography, by the same author....

The object is this book is to provide you with the motivation you need to completely eradicate every last vestige of pornography usage from your life. What you’re about to embark on is not an easy undertaking. Porn is not a game. Porn is an evil, lethal enemy to be battled relentlessly and ruthlessly until it’s completely exterminated. This is not a walk in the park: it’s WAR! In Porn Escape: Confidently Walk Free from the Prison of Pornography, I presented a practical program to help people break free from the porn habit. The book includes dozens of tips, based on the latest scientific research into willpower and self-control. I’m convinced that these methods work — if people will only use them. Yet, not everyone is ready to do that. As I’ll explain later in this book, some people need help to move beyond contemplation and begin taking action. The fact is, you’re not going to get anywhere in your fight against pornography unless your mind is resolutely made up to do so. You have got to be 100% committed. If you aren’t, you’ll fail and you’ll watch porn until you die. The relaxed mentality that got you into watching porn wo...

Lady Susan

By: Jane Austen

Excerpt: Lady Susan Vernon to Mr. Vernon. My Dear Brother,--I can no longer refuse myself the pleasure of profiting by your kind invitation when we last parted of spending some weeks with you at Churchhill, and, therefore, if quite convenient to you and Mrs. Vernon to receive me at present, I shall hope within a few days to be introduced to a sister whom I have so long desired to be acquainted with. My kind friends here are most affectionately urgent with me to prolong my stay, but their hospitable and cheerful dispositions lead them too much into society for my present situation and state of mind; and I impatiently look forward to the hour when I shall be admitted into Your delightful retirement....

Ideas in Arms : The Relationship of Kinetic and Ideological Means in America’s Global War on Terror

By: Thomas D. Torkelson, Lieutenant Colonel, USAF

Lt Col Thomas D. Torkelson claims that the inability of the United States to achieve its stated political objectives in its global war on terror (GWOT) reflects its flawed kinetic-centric military strategy. This study erects a framework of effectiveness utilizing Clausewitzian principles to judge military strategy. By considering the expressed political objectives of the GWOT, the centers of gravity (COG) that military strategy should target within this struggle, and the GWOT’s placement along a Clausewitzian continuum of violence, this paper evaluates US military efforts in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) through the perspective of two opposing models....

Malignants in the Body Politic : Redefining War through Metaphor

By: Douglas R. Stickle

In the aftermath of 9/11, President George W. Bush declared the dawn of a new kind of war. He has repeatedly emphasized that means and measures of success in this new war will differ greatly from wars past. However, if this “war on terrorism” is unlike any other war, then what is it like? From the public statements of high-ranking US officials, metaphorical answers emerge: terrorism is a metastasizing cancer, a plague, a threat from which we are not immune. This study explores the analogies of immunity, infection, and cancer. In doing so it addresses the classic strategic question: What is the nature of the enemy and of the fight?...

The Gospel According to St. Luke

By: Various

Excerpt: Chapter 1. Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us -- 2. Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word -- 3. It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus -- 4. That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed -- 5. There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth....

They can?t take her with them, for their sister has children, and she will have to roam from room to room before the whitewashers, which is not what I should wish in the critical state of chest left by measles.?...

The Two Sides of the Shield

By: Charlotte Mary Yonge

Preface: It is sometimes treated as an impertinence to revive the personages of one story in another, even though it is after the example of Shakespeare, who revived Falstaff, after his death, at the behest of Queen Elizabeth. This precedent is, however, a true impertinence in calling on the very great to justify the very small!...

The Writings of Abraham Lincoln in Seven Volumes Volume 3 of 7

By: Abraham Lincoln

Excerpt: Mr. President and Gentlemen of the convention:-- If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could better judge what to do, and how to do it. We are now far into the fifth year since a policy was initiated with the avowed object and confident promise of putting an end to slavery agitation. Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only not ceased, but has constantly augmented. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. ?A house divided against itself cannot stand.? I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing....

Mysteries of Paris, The, Volume 1

By: Eugène Sue

The Mysteries of Paris (French: Les Mystères de Paris) is a novel by Eugène Sue which was published serially in Journal des débats from June 19, 1842 until October 15, 1843. Les Mystères de Paris singlehandedly increased the circulation of Journal des débats. There has been lots of talk on the origins of the French novel of the 19th century: Stendhal, Balzac, Dumas, Gautier, Sand or Hugo. One often forgets Eugène Sue. Still, The Mysteries of Paris occupies a unique space in the birth of this literary genre: it entranced thousands of readers for more than a year (even illiterates who had episodes read to them) and was also a major work in the formation of a certain form of social consciousness. One often hears that the 1848 revolution was partly born in the pages of the Mysteries of Paris or, more appropriately, that the Mysteries of Paris helped create a climate which allowed the 1848 revolution to occur.The hero of the novel is the mysterious and distinguished Rodolphe, who is really the Grand Duke of Gérolstein (a fictional country) but is disguised as a Parisian worker. Rodolphe can speak in argot, is extremely strong and a good ...

Memories and Portraits

By: Robert Louis Stevenson

Excerpt: Chapter 1. The Foreigner At Home. ?This is no my ain house; I ken by the biggin? o?t.? Two recent books* one by Mr. Grant White on England, one on France by the diabolically clever Mr. Hillebrand, may well have set people thinking on the divisions of races and nations. Such thoughts should arise with particular congruity and force to inhabitants of that United Kingdom, peopled from so many different stocks, babbling so many different dialects, and offering in its extent such singular contrasts, from the busiest over-population to the unkindliest desert, from the Black Country to the Moor of Rannoch. It is not only when we cross the seas that we go abroad; there are foreign parts of England; and the race that has conquered so wide an empire has not yet managed to assimilate the islands whence she sprang. Ireland, Wales, and the Scottish mountains still cling, in part, to their old Gaelic speech. It was but the other day that English triumphed in Cornwall, and they still show in Mousehole, on St. Michael?s Bay, the house of the last Cornish-speaking woman. English itself, which will now frank the traveller through the most of...
