This is the story of heartbreak, struggle, and relentless parental support for Mike Gibbens, who was born with cerebral palsy. Battling a school system that separated their son from his neighborhood friends while facing financial difficulties from high medical costs, Mike’s parents vowed to find a way to improve the situation. As they searched for solutions to seemingly insurmountable problems in a world that wasn’t prepared to accept people with disabilities, Ron and Faye Gibbens were instrumental in founding a support group—North Dakota Association for the Disabled (NDAD)—in the early 1970s. With $83.72 in the NDAD bank account, the couple volunteered their spare time, while working full time, to nurture NDAD into a vibrant charitable organization that has since provided more than $56 million in vital disability services not provided by other organizations or agencies.

Most Western approaches to dreams are limited to a psychological paradigm. Building on Jung's work, which was heavily influenced by the transformative model of alchemy, a new multidimensional approach to the process of human transformation through dreams has been developed which recognises the interrelationship of the psychological and the spiritual, and works with the mirroring body in service of both. In the approach presented here, dreams are seen as a mixture of worldly impressions and expressions of our individual spirit, which is trying to speak to us through the metaphors and narrative of our dreams. In this way, the spiritual comes through the psychological dimension. Though it may seem to be a contradiction, our dreams hold the key to our 'awakening' and, by actively engaging with them we can unlock their potential for initiating and facilitating our own unfoldment. This book is about recognising this process when it occurs in dreams, and how to work with them in the service of our growth and self-realisation.
A unique self-help guide to dream interpretation using techniques and icons from cultures around the world. • Challenges the assumption that all symbols universally signify the same thing to all dreamers. • Includes numerous stories, games, and exercises for inducing, recalling, interpreting, and utilizing dreams. • Extends beyond Jung and Freud to include dream theory from numerous world cultures, including the Temiar of Malaya, the African Ibans, the Lepchka of the Himalayas, and the Ute of North America. Dreaming can be used as a tool for understanding our own consciousness, enhancing creativity, receiving visions, conquering fears, interpreting recent events, healing the body, and evolving the soul. Tapping into the vast dreaming experiences and lore of the world's cultures--from the Siwa people of the Libyan desert to the Naskapi Indians of Labrador--Sarvananda Bluestone challenges the assumption that all symbols universally signify the same thing to all dreamers. The World Dream Book encourages readers to develop their own, personalized symbols for understanding their consciousness and provides a series of stories, multicultural techniques, and games to help them do so. Playful explorations, such as the aboriginal "Sipping the Water of the Moon," teach how to induce, recall, interpret, and utilize the power of dreams. Readers will discover how a stone under a pillow can help us remember a dream and will explore their own dormant artist and writer as they reclaim the power of their sleeping consciousness. Sarvananda Bluestone applies his uniquely engaging style to demonstrate that, with a few simple tools, everybody has the capacity to unleash their full dreaming potential.
We expect that getting what we want will finally make us happy, but what we find is that it mostly just leads to wanting more or wanting something different. Our desires toss us to and fro until we tire of this and begin to question the value of following our desires. Being Happy (Even When You Don't Get What You Want) will help you understand desire and its purpose in your life. It will also help you discriminate between your Heart's desires and the ego's and to relate to the ego's desires in a way that reduces suffering and increases joy. By pointing out the myths about desire that keep us tied to our ego's desires and the suffering they cause, Being Happy (Even When You Don't Get What You Want) will help you be happy regardless of your desires and whether you are attaining them. So it is also about spiritual freedom, or liberation, which comes from following the Heart, our deepest desires, instead of the ego's desires. It is about becoming a lover of life rather than a desirer. A review from Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God: "Conversations with God says that happiness is not getting what you want, it is wanting what you get. Others have made the same observation, and in fact, this thought seems to be as old as time. Still, it is good to hear it again, to visit it once more, to connect with the wisdom yet one more time. And few books do as good a job, as quickly, of reconnecting us with that wisdom than this one by Gina Lake. This book had a lasting impact on me. I highly recommend it.... It offers a simple, accessible, articulate, and interesting take on the very human experience of desire and gives us the tools to make clear choices about how we want to live our lives. An excellent read." This book was formerly titled Anatomy of Desire.
In the late 1970s, Richard convinced his wife, Sandra, that they should leave their promising professional careers and comfortable suburban lifestyle to start an azalea nursery in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. With no horticultural training or business experience, few mechanical skills, and absolutely no idea what they were getting themselves into, numerous adventures followed. In the second book in the planned four-book series, Richard continues the couples colorful story, a story of triumph and despair, of high expectations and harsh reality, and of the people who touched their lives along the way. In the tradition of such classics as The Little House on the Prairie and Waltons Mountain, Mountain of My Dreams shares the true story of two ordinary people and their memorable, often remarkable 25-year journey. Much more than just another back-to-the-land chronicle, this is a heartwarming tale of a man, a woman, and their belief in each other. If youve ever wondered why the less-traveled road is less traveled, you need to read their story.

Twenty years ago, author B. Louis Richardson’s life radiated with purpose and direction; he had a simple life and harbored big dreams of becoming a pilot. But his life veered off on another path, and he worked successfully for many years in the retail industry. Recently, Richardson realized he had many unaccomplished dreams and discovered he was not dedicating himself to the plans God has for his life. In this memoir, Richardson narrates his twenty-year journey of discovery and his goal of finding his life’s true purpose—the one for which he was created. He tells of his life as a born-again Christian, his dedication to his family, his foray into the entrepreneurial business world, and his quest for self-fulfillment. Through Richardson’s journey, Late Dream communicates the positive effects of completely surrendering to the will of God. He bridges the gap between where we roam today and where a true knowledge of God will propel us to stand tomorrow.
