Bolt from The Blue, Jolt From The Heaven: Fight against cancer through Ayurveda and spirituality

by Mandar Mehta

In 2015, I was diagnosed with an advanced stage cancer. It was a sudden bolt from the blue. I was told in February 2015 that I had advanced stage cancer (Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma – a rare slow growing cancer of the salivary glands – tumor of size 5 cm x 5 cm x 4 cm at the base of tongue affecting the larynx). I had problem in speaking and swallowing food.

I conditioned my mind and tried to understand various aspects and took informed decisions. I have chosen path less travelled. I have not opted for chemo, surgery or radiation but rather chose mind control, diet, Ayurveda and spirituality to address the ailment. I have survived my illness so far, and managed to overcome the fear of death and have tried to put up a fight against the greatest adversity in my life.

The fight is not yet over but there has been a significant progress and I am happy about the outcome so far. Along the journey, somewhere I felt a desire to share my experiences which may help others by shedding some light on certain established beliefs.

Blavatsky: Voices & Secrets

Madame Helena Blavatsky is an enigma. In her lifetime she battled accusations of fraud , yet her legacy continues to this day as one of the most important figures in modern occult history.

Born a Russian aristocrat, Madame Blavatsky was possessed of a rare drive and singular goal: to unite the world.

Travelling the world many times over, her quest for knowledge led her from the deepest jungles of India and the deserts of Egypt to the hidden monasteries of Tibet and London society.

In this short work, Connor Sansby attempts to explore just why Blavatsky remains such a powerful figure in modern mysticism and what drove her in her own lifetime.

A Sugary Frosting: A Memoir of A Girlhood Spent in a Parsonage and How I Survived Being a Preacher’s Kid (The Cancer Books Book 2)

by Denis Ledoux

A Sugary Frosting / A Memoir of A Girlhood Spent in a Parsonage and How I Survived Being a Preacher’s Kid

This memoir reveals an underside of being a preacher’s kid, a public role that is rife with challenges of supporting your minister father and your minister’s-wife mother and of becoming yourself, a person they may not have expected their household to have produced. Relationships in this memoir are portrayed honestly and sometimes not flatteringly. A Sugary Frosting, a phrase derived from Martha Blowen’s journals, is a memoir of surviving religious idealism and inherited belief to undertake to become one’s self.

~ a touching tribute to Martha’s memoryâ?¦ â?? Cynthia Rose Lisbon


A Sugary Frosting is a step through the 1950s and 1960s that will bring the life of those years to the foreâ??at least as it was lived in a parsonage.

In its pages, you will observe:

– the viciousness of the “White Church” whose members sent hate notes to the minister.

– the minister’s “cunnin’ ” little girl showing her rosebud petticoat to the church ladies.

– women going to church wearing glovesâ??even in summer.

– the minister’s daughter smoking pot and telling her parents it was incense.

– what it felt like to be a talented lyric soprano and not wanting to sing.

– going to the elite Milton Academy and hating it.

– being bullied by a high school teacher.

– living a life where everything had to be “nice-nice.”

– having her parents’ anti-war protests lead to being dismissed from their church

Theseâ??and moreâ??stories, told artfully and insightfully, will keep you reading long past when you should be asleep.

In A Sugary Frosting / A Girlhood Spent in a Parsonage, the hero comes to the realization that the religious beliefs she has inherited do not fit comfortably. From early on, she wonders “What does it mean ‘to love Jesus?'” She struggles to make belief and experience mesh but as she writes, “I was too young to understand, but I knew my own experience and not my parents’ belief had to be my guide.”

Why is Satan called “the god of this age”?

In the Bible Satan is called “the god of this age” (2 Corinthians 4:4) and “the prince of this world” (John 12:31; 16:11), which begs the question: In what sense is Satan a god and a prince?

First, Satan is not YAHAWAH’s equal. Rather, according to Scripture, Satan is a finite, created being (Colossians 1:16). He was the first sinner (1 John 3:8; Revelation 12:7-9) and will one day be cast into the lake of burning sulfur for all eternity (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10; cf. 2 Peter 2:4; Jude 6). Thus, Christians need not fear the god of this age, for “the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).

Furthermore, Satan, whose name means “adversary,” is the god of this age in that he is the supreme exemplar of evil. In the words of YAHAWASHI, “He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44). Indeed, all the sin of the world is patterned after Satan: “He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning” (1 John 3:8). It is he “who leads the whole world Astray” (Revelation 12:9).

Finally, Satan is the de facto ruler of all who willingly subject themselves to his masterful deceit (2 Corinthians 4:4; 11:3). If we do not belong to the Elohim of the Eternity, then we are of Satanâ??the god of this age.

“This is what the YAHAWAH says–Israel’s King and Redeemer, The TRUTH Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.”

Only One Summer

by Faye Aldridge

In the beginning, the author wrote this story as a private gift for her family members. The writer’s original purpose was sharing childhood memories and valuable life lessons with those whom she dearly loved. In time, friends read it and the consensus was that she should make it available to a wider audience.

Desiring to convey the messages both pleasingly and beneficially, Faye gave the matter serious consideration. She decided to portray herself as the two main characters in the story, simultaneously, using an element of fiction in order to achieve her goal. She decided to express her childhood memories through the student, Rose, and her adult life lessons through the teacher, Abigail Worthington, and the book came to fruition.

In the end, it was plain to see the book was not like works by Hemingway, London or Twain. It turned out to be just a simple little book but remember, the foolish things confound the wiseâ?¦




The 19th Century is often regarded as the heyday of poisoners. In the beginning to the middle of the nineteenth century, a poisoning panic engrossed the public imagination. In the Times newspaper in England, between 1830 and 1839, fifty-nine cases of murder by poisoning were reported. By the 1840s, the number reported had risen to hundreds. And, of these hundreds of poisonings, sixty percent involved women murderers.
In this fascinating book, best selling author Sylvia Perrini, looks at serial women killers around the world in the 19th Century. Nearly all the cases, but not all, involve poisoning.

Everything we owned fit in a suitcase. Sometimes we slept on the side of the road. Sometimes we begged for food.

This is the true story about me and my family during the Great Depression and the years following.

At the age of five, I hadn’t yet realized how Mom and Dad were struggling to keep the family together. My mother died when I was seven. Dad and I were living in a car when I was put into a boy’s detention center because I didn’t have a home. At nine I was placed in an orphanage. After Dad died I was adopted in Arizona. I was twelve.

Then again, at age sixteen I had Nowhere to Call Home.
