Download or read book I Want More written by Gilberto Rodriguez and published by Palibrio. This book was released on 2015-09-10 with total page 74 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Talking with God is much more than an exchanging of words. There is a dangerous threat in a Christian, and it needs to be removed: not knowing how to pray and not knowing the benefits of a life of prayer. There is a saying, “A Christian who does not pray is a defeated one.” The power of God is released through fasting and prayer. What is prayer? What can I expect when I pray? What am I missing when I don't pray correctly? I have never met a Christian who wants to live a life of defeat, but I have known many who do not know if they are praying correctly. In Luke 11:1, one of the disciples saw Jesus finished praying hours and heal and perform miracles in seconds. This book is written for the purpose of awakening in every person the desire to enter the secret place and pray more. It is designed to make you addicted to prayer. I will share secrets that the Holy Spirit revealed to me concerning a lifestyle of prayer. Did you know that when you enter the secret place and create a real lifestyle of prayer, you will become impregnated by God? Get ready to become one who will say, "I want more."
Download or read book The Complete Works of W R Bion written by W. R. Bion and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2021-06-24 with total page 372 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Cogitations is the name Bion gave to the occasional short notes he had begun to write in the February of 1958 in order to clarify his think-ing about the difficulties of working with psychotic patients using an unmodified psychoanalytic method – work informed by and shared with his two closest colleagues (who, like Bion, were in analysis with Melanie Klein), Hanna Segal and Herbert Rosenfeld. That clinical work formed the foundation of the clinical papers reproduced in Second Thoughts and the formulations in the four books of the 1960s: Learning from Expe-rience, Elements of Psycho-Analysis, Transformations, and Attention and Interpretation.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Methuen Drama Book of New American Plays is an anthology of six outstanding plays from some of the most exciting playwrights currently receiving critical acclaim in the States. It showcases work produced at a number of the leading theatres during the last decade and charts something of the extraordinary range of current playwriting in America. It will be invaluable not only to readers and theatergoers in the U.S., but to those around the world seeking out new American plays and an insight into how U.S. playwrights are engaging with their current social and political environment. There is a rich collection of distinctive, diverse voices at work in the contemporary American theatre and this brings together six of the best, with work by David Adjmi, Marcus Gardley, Young Jean Lee, Katori Hall, Christopher Shinn and Dan LeFranc. The featured plays range from the intimate to the epic, the personal to the national and taken together explore a variety of cultural perspectives on life in America. The first play, David Adjmi's Stunning, is an excavation of ruptured identity set in modern day Midwood, Brooklyn, in the heart of the insular Syrian-Jewish community; Marcus Gardley's lyrical epic The Road Weeps, The Well Runs Dry deals with the migration of Black Seminoles, is set in mid-1800s Oklahoma and speaks directly to modern spirituality, relocation and cultural history; Young Jean Lee's Pullman, WA deals with self-hatred and the self-help culture in her formally inventive three-character play; Katori Hall's Hurt Village uses the real housing project of "Hurt Village" as a potent allegory for urban neglect set against the backdrop of the Iraq war; Christopher Shinn's Dying City melds the personal and political in a theatrical crucible that cracks open our response to 9/11 and Abu Graib, and finally Dan LeFranc's The Big Meal, an inter-generational play spanning eighty years, is set in the mid-west in a generic restaurant and considers family legacy and how some of the smallest events in life turn out to be the most significant.

Our goal is simply to share strategies that have worked for each of us in the event it may help those in a similar situation.

Book excerpt: Nick Novaczek is a cautious soul, a 17-year old with a boring life, a predictable future, and a quiet thirst for danger. On the eve of his beloved grandmother's funeral, danger finds him by the motel swimming pool. Her name is Celia and she's everything he's not. This foul-mouthed beauty is hitchhiking across the country to make amends with her estranged father and doesn't carry an ounce of fear or hesitation in her tattered suitcase. She's bad news all around, but for a rule-follower like Nick, she's intoxicating. Twenty-four hours after speaking to Celia for the very first time, following one extremely lucky night, Nick is hopelessly hooked and "borrows" his parents' car to join her cross-country mission, even though her story is full of holes. It's the mistake he's been waiting his whole life to make. Together, they dodge a train, jump off a bridge, and scam everyone in their path. Nick is blossoming into a teenage fugitive, just like Celia, and he's never been happier. She may not be who she says she is, but she's got his vulnerable heart. After weeks of detours, with hundreds of miles left to go, their wild adventure starts to unravel. The money dries up, Celia's dark secrets begin to surface, and it's clear they both want vastly different things out of this partnership. Celia is all about no strings attached and severing whatever they may have between them once they reach their destination, while Nick is head over heels in love and wanting a future with the girl in his passenger seat. They seem to reach a new low on a daily basis, but she won't turn back, no matter how desperate things get. After all, this is her trip and Nick is just the driver. Celia's got a charming smile to pay her way, a willing accomplice, a hidden agenda, and an endless supply of lies. Not to mention a gun.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Lost Generation: The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, The Great Gatsby by Francis Scott Fitzgerald, Death of a Hero by Richard Aldington, Under Fire: The Story of a Squad by Henri Barbusse. After the First World War, special people returned to their home towns from the front. When the war began, they were still boys, but duty forced them to defend the homeland. "Lost Generation" - as they were called. This concept is used today when we talk about writers who worked during the breaks between the First and Second World Wars, which became a test for all of humanity and were almost all beaten out of their usual, peaceful rut. One of the themes that commonly appears in the authors' works is decadence and the frivolous lifestyle of the wealthy. Writers of the lost generation raise in their works the problem of young people who returned from the war and did not find their home, their relatives. Questions about how to live, how to remain human, how to learn to enjoy life again - this is what is paramount in this literary movement. Table of Contents: 1. Ernest Hemingway: A Farewell to Arms 2.

Download or read book The Sun Also Rises LARGE PRINT EDITION written by Ernest Hemingway and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2022-03-15 with total page 360 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: *LARGE PRINT* A value edition of the timeless classic by Ernest Hemingway. For nearly a century, The Sun Also Rises has endured as one of Hemingway’s masterworks, and is widely regarded as a prime example of the great American writer’s pioneering style and form. His first major novel explores powerful themes like masculinity and male insecurity, sex and love, and the effects of a brutal war on an aimless generation. This roman à clef is based on the real experiences and relationships Hemingway had in the early 1920s. Set predominantly in France and Spain, the novels follows a group of disillusioned aimless expats tooling around post-war Europe, living hard, drinking heavily, and having complicated sordid love affairs. The novel is told from the perspective of Jake Barnes, a World War I vet turned journalist living in Paris, who is still in love with his former flame, the eccentric and charismatic Lady Brett Ashley. Meanwhile, Jake's friend, author Robert Cohn, becomes tired of his oppressive marriage and sets off to seek out adventure, becoming enamored with Brett himself. They all eventually drift from the glitz and glamour of 1920s Paris to Pamplona, Spain, where they revel in the rawness of bullfights and alcohol-fueled parties, eventually devolving into jealousy and violent drama. This leads to Jake coming to a stark realization—that he can never be with the woman he truly loves.
