Re: Yikes! Hurricane Walter is swallowing Florida

And things aren’t too swell elsewhere.

 

But don’t despair.  Nine out of ten doctors recommend reading seriocomic novels for depression caused by impending apocalyptic-like disasters.  To be honest, I don’t think any of those nine out of ten doctors have read New New Coastal.  At least not yet. But what have you got to lose? Besides $2.99, that is?  And the valuable time you could be spending preparing for the worst—or reading something more to your liking?

 

Already, you’ve wasted a lot of valuable time just perusing this post.  So you might as well give in and give New Coastal Times  a try.  If you don’t like it, send me an email and I will personally apologize for not writing a book that’s up to your high standards.  Try getting Stephen King to do that.  If you do like it, send me an email (or better yet, a review), and we will become best friends forever (BFF, as the kids say).

 

But hurry.  Like I said, Hurricane Walter is swallowing Florida.  And that’s just the beginning.

Soul and Reincarnation

[ Edited ]

 

 

Soul and Reincarnation; and what happens to soul at the time of death!  The views on soul and reincarnation vary from no such thing as a ‘soul’ to only humans possess a soul, to both humans and animals possess a soul, and that soul likewise dies when the physical body dies or that soul is immortal and never dies. All religions believe in the existence of SOUL in human body, but they differ in what happens after death. This manuscript searches for the truth. It provides alternate views using science and logic to questions that were perceived to be confusing and contradictory varying from faith to faith. We hope these will be more acceptable to our next generation of science and technology. It is written for those curious minds that like to explore the mystery of soul and reincarnation.

 

Dr. Dhillon has used the best of Eastern traditions and Western Scientific knowledge to expose the mystery of soul and reincarnation.

 

“There are many religions, but only

One Morality, One Truth, and One God.

The only Heaven is one of Conscious Life

And Fellowship with God.”

Science, Religion & Spirituality

[ Edited ]

Science, Religion & Spirituality  

     There are books on god and religion, and on spirituality.  There are books for and against evolution and creation.  But this is one book that presents reconciliation between science and religion.  A rare blend that brings science and spirituality together which are generally treated as oil and water. This is also a book that looks on Science, religion and spirituality from Eastern and Western point of view.

 

     In the past, East has lived religiously-- that is one pole-- and because it has lived religiously it has not been able to produce good science. The West has lived scientifically, and because of its science it has lost track of spirituality. Now for the first time in this space age and internet, the East is no more East and the West is no more West. The earth is becoming one: the earth is becoming one global village.  This is the time when the reconciliation between science and religion can be seen, can be understood.

 

     Truth cannot contradict itself. Truth from science and truth from God/Religion must eventually converge into one grand whole, a unified knowledge of the laws that govern our universe.  Those who fight over superiority of one over the other are blinded by ignorance about both.

 

     Easterner or Westerner, the reader will have a fresh perspective about science, religion, and spirituality.  It is easy to read book that changes your outlook towards religion and spirituality.

 

     The author has an advanced degree in life sciences and molecular biology from the West, and a fascination with yoga, breathing, religion, and spirituality from the East, crafted out of studies at Yale University, U.S.A., and Punjab University, India. Therefore, he presents quite successfully: Eastern and Western synthesis of science, religion, and spirituality.

 

     The book consists of nine chapters and each chapter starts with an appropriate quote by some famous spiritualist, divine personality, prophet,  philosopher or by the author itself: Chapter 1, The Power of Spirituality; Chapter 2, Religious Practices and New Consciousness; Chapter 3, The Universal Divine Mind; Chapter 4, A Free Mind; Chapter 5, Spiritual Living I; Chapter 6, Spiritual Living II; Chapter 7, God and Spirit; Chapter 8, Evil–The Absence of Goodness; Chapter 9, Full Living.  The chapters precede by ‘A Word’ of introduction, and are followed by ‘Test of Your spirituality Level,’ and References.

 

     The book introduction starts with a popular quote by Albert Einstein: “Religion without science is blind.  Science without religion is lame”  However, Dr. Dhillon goes even further to prove reconciliation between science and religion.

 

     ‘Science, Religion & Spirituality’ is written at a time when youth is returning to a kind of religion where spirituality is on the rise. There is no longer value in articles with titles such as “Is God Dead?” Today we are using science to complement our spirituality. With this new notion the book combines Eastern religious traditions and Western scientific knowledge to develop practical spirituality.  There is practical information on how to observe the mind, to live in gratitude, and to discard expectations. The book describes benefits of focusing on our spiritual-self that leads to tranquility, increased production, a resurgence of vitality, mental clarity, and joy of living.  There is even a test to know your spirituality level.

     There are 3 chapters that describe: How concept of god and spirituality help us coping with stress.  These describe virtues such as surrender, forgiveness, prayer, positive thinking, and control over mind. There is information about relieving fear of death and disease, and creating a state of mind without fear.  Concept of soul and reincarnation, evil, hell, and heaven are explained from both scientific and religious point of view.  There is another chapter on: How our attitude and actions are related to pain and pleasure, love, friendship, and happiness.


     This book is not about creating a new religion, sect or movement, but in fact emphasizes about loving every religion. An understanding of science, religion, and spirituality will put us on a road to love and happiness irrespective of our faith.

Re: A Mobster's Recipe for Cupcakes by Beth Mathison

A short story in a continuing series from Untreed Reeds publishing. Jeremy, Harry and Charlie, fresh from their hilarious adventures in A Mobster’s Guide to Cranberry Sauce, are back and in more trouble than ever.

 

After the Thanksgiving disaster in their previous outing, Jeremy is determined to leave the cranberries (and the “family business”) behind and open a successful cupcake shop. When Harry and Charlie show up during his efforts to get ready for Valentine’s Day with another crime gone horribly wrong, Jeremy soon realizes that even when you want out of the family’s problems, it’s rarely that easy.

Health, Happiness, and Longevity

 


      “Health, Happiness, & Longevity” presents a fresh approach to “total-wellbeing” where author uses his knowledge of science from the West, and yoga, breathing and spirituality from the East. His unique qualifications include advanced degree in life sciences and molecular biology from Yale University in the West, and his earlier education and experience with yoga, breathing and spirituality from the East. He uses his knowledge to the fullest and truly presents a synthesis of Eastern and Western health-management approaches.

      The author’s skillful use of scientific knowledge and eastern traditions makes this very different from reading a medical guide to keep us healthy and energetic. He gives scientific reasons to use yoga, meditation, breathing and spirituality not only as a natural approach to handle weight and stress but to empower yourself emotionally. A rare blend that combines science and ancient wisdom.

      Easterner or Westerner, the reader will have a fresh perspective about handling the weight, nutrition, exercise and total wellbeing. It is easy to read book that changes your outlook towards health. It’s a book about health care and not disease care in contrast to multi-billion dollar government program called health care which in reality is a disease care program.  This book is here to help you and save broken health care system.

 

      The book provides various studies and statistics on “high cost of health” and suggests that health care is a necessity to handle disease care.

      The author has put lot of efforts to create a blend of science and natural ways to stay healthy and energetic. But you don’t find miracles and supernatural powers which will be against his scientific training. Health, Happiness,& Longevity: Eastern and Western Approach is a practical guide that combines various eating habits, yogic and breathing approaches known for centuries to faith healers and health experts, and are now recognized by modern medical practitioners.

      The book consists of nine chapters each representing an independent topic: Chapter 1, A Healthy Attitude Towards a Happy Life; Chapter 2, Full Living; Chapter 3, Nutrition and Nutrients; Chapter 4, Weight Control and Calories; Chapter 5, The Natural Diet; Chapter 6, Slow Down Aging to Lead a Long and Healthy Life; Chapter 7, Complete Breathing for Vigor and Vitality; Chapter 8, Walking and Yogic Exercises for Health; Chapter 9, Concluding Remarks. The chapters precede by preface and introduction, and are followed by “Natural-Vegetarian Diet Recipes” and other Appendices A to G, Bibliography, and Information 'About the Author'.

      “Health, Happiness, & Longevity: Eastern and Western Approach” is written in times of much needed Eastern-Western approach to global issues, where the modern-day reader can learn from the best of both worlds. The author takes ancient techniques of the East, and relates them to everyday living in 21st century of science and technology. Dr. Dhillon not only points out the weight and health-issues as a modern day problem, but provides logical solutions. So it’s a good source of information for handling weight and other health issues by yourself without going to expensive seminars, wellness centers, medical offices, spas, schools, or retirement centers.

IN SEARCH OF GOD

 

 

      God and spirit is no more another worldly belief in fate, luck, chance, or coincidence.  For the new generation of 21st century, we should be able to make sense of the real world, find peace in the midst of turmoil, and discover hope and joy.  The God is not in church or mosque or temple only that appears every Sunday.  God is also not sitting somewhere in the sky watching our actions.  The God is in us 24-hours a day.  “If we can’t see God in all, we can’t see God at all.”  We need scriptures that can teach us all humans are capable of achieving union with God while still alive by realizing the Divine within.  We want to become one with God and experience it. 

 

      This book will lead us towards spiritual meditation and permanent peace; representing the best that East and West have to offer since the author is educated at Yale University in the West and Punjab University in the East.  The reader will understand the concept of God, which constitutes the spiritual basis of living.  This understanding will lead us to love and happiness irrespective of our faith.
