A Witch in the Family: An Award Winning Author Investigates His Ancestor’s Trial & Execution

by Stephen Hawley Martin

Award-winning author Stephen Hawley Martin grew up wondering whether or not his seven-times great grandmother, Susannah North Martin, really had been practicing witchcraft back in the seventeenth century. After all, she was hanged for it. So he delved into the historical record and found that a great deal of information is available. As a result of his research, he suspects some of those hanged during the Salem Witchcraft hysteria had been practicing magic. He also came to believe the commonly-held belief is off the mark that the victims of the witches faked their symptoms. This is the true story from a twenty-first century perspective of Susannah Martin and the others who were executed, including recent findings of research into the paranormal.

The Battle of the Marne

by Francis Reynolds

On September 4, 1914, the bugler of Destiny sounded the “Halt!” to the retreat of the armies of the Allies from the Belgian frontier. The marvelous fighting machine of the German armies, perhaps the most superb organization of military potency that has been conceived by the mind of man, seemed to reach its limit of range. Success had perched upon the German eagles, and for two weeks there had been a steady succession of victories. Nevertheless the British and French armies were not crushed. They were overwhelmed, they were overpowered, and, under stern military necessity, they were forced to fall back.
Day after day, under the swinging hammer-head blows of the German drive, the flower of the forces of the Allies had been compelled to break. A little less generalship on the part of the defenders, or a little more recklessness behind that smashing offensive might have turned this retirement into a rout. Even as it was, the official dispatches reveal that, while occasional and local retirements had been considered, such a sweeping retreat was far from contemplated by Generals Joffre and French. German official dispatches bear testimony to the intrepid character of the defenders sullenly falling back and contesting every inch of the way, as much as they do to the daring and the vivid bravery of the German attackers who hurled themselves steadily, day after day, upon positions hastily taken up in the retreat where the retirement could be partly repaid by the heaviest toll of death.
The great strategical plan of the Germans, which had displayed itself throughout the entire operations on the western theatre of war from the very first gun of the campaign, came to its apex on this September 3, 1914. If the allied armies could develop a strong enough defense to halt the German offensive at this point, and especially if they could develop a sufficiently powerful counteroffensive to strike doubt into the confident expectations of the armies of the Central Powers, then the strategical plan had reached a check, which might or might not be a checkmate, as the fortunes of war might determine. If, on the other hand, the stand made by the Allies at this point should prove ineffective, and if the counteroffensive should reveal that the German hosts had been able to establish impregnable defenses as they marched, then the original strategic plan of the attackers must be considered as intact and the peril of France would become greatly intensified…

History of Modern Europe – Volume II

by Carlton Hayes

CERTAIN basic principles in society and in politics were proclaimed by the French Revolution. The Napoleonic Era served to communicate them to Europe. The ensuing period was marked by a bitter struggle within nearly every European state for their general acceptance or for their wholesale rejection.
To all Frenchmen liberty, equality, and fraternity already meant definite facts or rights: those who espoused them were inherently revolutionariesâ??radicals or liberalsâ?? while those who repudiated them were reactionaries or conservatives, intent upon maintaining or restoring the political and social institutions of the old regime. The Bourbon settlement of 1814 in France was in the nature of a compromise, a nice balancing of the forces of revolution and reaction. Outside of France the sovereigns of Europe were almost without exception reactionaries, determined to bolster up the theories and practices of the eighteenth century, but many of their subjects who, in the years between 1789 and 1814, had learned from the French in one way or another the significance of popular sovereignty, individual rights, and national patriotism, gave unmistakable signs of a contrary determination. The question resolved itself into this: should revolutionary or reactionary doctrine henceforth shape the society and politics of the European nations? It was a question fraught with the most momentous consequences to succeeding generations. Another fifteen years would pass before the outcome could be indicatedâ??the fifteen years (1815-1830) of conflict between liberals and conservatives which we shall now proceed to treat as the Era of Metternich…

by Mohammad Amin Sheikho

Stories of the Scholar Mohammad Amin Sheikho.

His Life, His Deeds, His Way to Al’lah (1890-1964)

Mohammad Amin Sheikho was born in Damascus in the year 1890.

He completed his studies when he became eighteen years old. He graduated in the rank of security officer.

He faced storms of criminals in his work with courage and boldness, and he besieged many guerrillas and arrested their leaders. All his works were crowned in victory and support until he was surnamed ‘Aslan’, meaning ‘the lion’.

After he became forty years old:

His sanctified assemblies were distinguished by charming and unique revelation in perfect and plain meanings, and complete presence of reality. His words used to hit the target and fall cool and peaceful in the hearts of the listeners, as a light that bewitched them to free their spirits to soar very high.

Why are we created? What is this universe for?

What is the use of religious rituals? What is hunger for, followed by eating in Ramadan? What is the output and benefit of prayer?

Why do pilgrimage to a waterless and treeless desert?

Why were we brought into existence? Where were we? What is death for? And what is really after it? What is the spirit? What is the soul? What is the mind? What is paradise? What is hell? What about the problem of fate? What is the pre-material world (the world of spirits)?

On the year 1953, the great philosopher Sir John Godolphin Bennett had come to meet him, and wrote one book about this meeting called (Journeys in Islamic Countries).

He spent a valuable life full of knowledge of God, which the heart does not feel safe without, and without which humankind won’t achieve happiness until he joined the highest Comrade in the year “1964”.

Der Mongole: Dschingis Khan und das Weltreich der Mongolen (German Edition)

by J. Cock

Das aufregende und spannende Leben des Halbwaisen Temüdschin, der am Ende des 12. Jahrhunderts durch List, Tücke, Mut und unbedingten Willen das Volk der Mongolen geeinigt hatte, zum Kaiser aller Mongolen, zum Dschingis Khan, wurde und innerhalb weniger Jahrzehnte das grö�te zusammenhängende Reich der Geschichte geschaffen hat.

Es erstreckte sich am Höhepunkt seiner Macht über die östliche Hälfte Europas und einen gro�en Teil Asiens. Eine Leistung, mag man sie nun negativ oder positiv beurteilen, die au�er ihm bisher noch niemand geschafft hat. Seine Nachfolger drangen mit ihren Truppen bis ins Herz Europas vor.

Historische Grö�e darf man nicht unbedingt nur von positiven Leistungen abhängig machen.

Die von Dschingis Khan erlassenen Gesetze beweisen noch heute Weitblick und Klugheit. Sie sicherten im Inneren des Reiches Wohlstand, Sicherheit, Ruhe und hin und wieder auch Frieden. In religiösen Fragen bewies er eine für damalige Zeiten au�ergewöhnliche Toleranz. In seinem Weltreich wurden alle Religionen geduldet und gefördert. Eine Toleranz, den manche Länder im 21. Jahrhundert noch nicht erreicht haben und, wie es aussieht, auch nicht so schnell erreichen werden und wollen.

Bei seinen zahlreichen Kriegen erwies er sich als listenreich, heimtückisch und auch extrem grausam. Durch seine Reformen im Heereswesen der Mongolen, mit einer Absicherung der Familien seiner Soldaten im Feld, auch wenn sie fielen – eine Einmaligkeit für damalige Zeiten – schuf er eine Vertrauensbasis unter seinen Soldaten, die ihnen ihre überragenden Erfolge ermöglichten.

Zusammenfassend lässt sich feststellen, dass das Blut ihrer Opfer den Weg der Mongolen kennzeichnete. Dabei kann man nicht nur von einer Spur, sondern von einem Meer von Blut ausgehen. Die Mongolen massakrierten, vergewaltigten und versklavten eine ungeheure Anzahl von Menschen, feindliche Kämpfer und unschuldige Frauen und Kinder.

Das Mittelalter war insgesamt eine blutbeladene Zeit. Insofern bilden die Mongolen da keine Ausnahme. Ihre Siege erlangten sie durch ihre überlegene Technik und die bessere Strategie. Bezüglich ihrer Brutalität sei noch festgehalten, dass die europäischen Kriege bis hin in die Neuzeit ebenso brutal verliefen und auch wesentlich mehr Menschenleben gekostet haben. Das soll allerdings keine Rechtfertigung für die mongolischen Grausamkeiten sein!

Doch das Bild der Mongolen ist vielschichtiger und hängt nicht nur von ihren Grausamkeiten ab.

Sie zeichneten sich auch durch besondere Leistungen im Alltag und Aufgeschlossenheit in Glaubensfragen aus. Sie waren, wenn sie gerade nicht kämpften, wesentlich aufgeschlossener und auch toleranter als die Herrscher in Europa.

In der heutigen Zentralmongolei entstand ihre Hauptstadt Karakorum. Die Mongolen ermutigten mit vielen Versprechen Menschen aus anderen Teilen Asiens, sich in der neuen Residenz anzusiedeln. So garantierte man etwa allen Bewohnern völlige Religionsfreiheit. Es ist unklar, ob die Mongolen – im Gegensatz zu ihren Kriegen – im zivilen Leben groÃ?e Toleranz zeigten, oder ob ihnen die Religionen anderer egal waren.

Unter �gedei Khan, seinem Nachfolger entwickelte sich Karakorum zur angesehenen Hauptstadt des Mongolenreiches. Er wandelte die mongolische Raubnation, unter anderem auch durch die Einführung von Staatskanzleien und den Bau eines Palastes in dieser Stadt, zu einem dauerhaft organisierten Staatswesen um. Für die Mongolen ist Karakorum noch heute die Keimzelle und Geburtsstätte ihres Nationalstaates.

Nachdem später unter Kublai Khan der Buddhismus zur Staatsreligion erklärt wurde, hatten die Mongolen alles, was für die Stabilität eines gro�en Reiches in der Regel unbedingt erforderlich ist: eine Hauptstadt, eine verbindende Schrift und eine Hochreligion.

Tauchen Sie ein in eine neue und unbekannte Welt! Die Welt der Mongolen und ihrer Kaiser!

Kalika-Khenmetaten, the Supreme Egyptian Adept – Ancient Secret Knowledge of the Great Female Master

by M.G. Hawking

Explore the Profound Esoteric Knowledge of the Ancient Ages…

History is the relics of a shipwreck; far more of the knowledge of the past has been concealed than revealed. Explore an unprecedented opportunity to discover ancient secrets that convey extraordinary powers, far-reaching revelations that for long millenniums have remained hidden under the most intense silence.

Some seven-thousand years ago there appeared on the banks of the Nile, as if suddenly ascended from the sands, the first great civilization of known history. No one knows from whence the early Egyptians came, yet no people, ancient or modern, have conceived of building a civilization on a scale so sublime, so great, so grandiose, as the Ancient Egyptians.

Their technology of architecture, engineering, agriculture, and metallurgy; the invention of glass and linen, of paper and ink, of the calendar and the clock, of geometry and the alphabet; the excellence and sublimity of sculpture and the arts; the advancement of science and medicine; the first formulation known to us of individual and public conscience, the first cry for social justice, the first widespread monogamy, the first monotheism . . . all elevated to a degree of superiority and power that has seldom, if ever, been equaled since.

How were these monumental accomplishments achieved? How did a small stone-age culture suddenly rise to create one of the greatest civilizations of history? Where did the Ancient Egyptians’ knowledge, power and sophistication come from?

This volume explores answers to that mystery in the work of the great Egyptian Master Kalika-Khenmetaten, who authored esoteric manuscripts in Egypt under the patronage of the great Kings Amenhotep III and Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten) over three-thousand-three-hundred years ago. Magical, inspirational and richly enlightening, the story of Kalika is one of the most epic in history, and her writings reveal the profound knowledge and power of the masters of those distant ages.

Fragments of the material presented in this book have through the centuries appeared in arcane mystical texts, in the more profound Eastern philosophies, and in the secret wisdom traditions of various ages. This is to be expectedâ??the knowledge that conveys true power has an ancient origin. In modern times, splinters of this knowledge have resurfaced in various formats, although unfortunately absent both the most fundamental as well as the most advanced elements of the wisdom system of the supreme masters. The writings of Kalika-Khenmetaten are absent nothingâ??they are all-encompassing.

Attaining the ability to purposefully manifest whatever persons, circumstances and events you desire to experience in your life cannot be truly achieved through simplistic concepts of “positive thinking” or some alleged “secret,” as so many people have learned. Kalika produced her manuscript, The Golden Crown, for important reasons. It is to some extent a manual, a comprehensive guide to reaching higher awareness, written by a supreme master for masters, but not only for masters. Kalika intended that it could be utilized by persons of requisite ability to reach, through their own efforts, significantly expanded levels of awareness. It sets forth the foundational recognitions and essential principles of consciousness necessary to master the extraordinary creative power to directly manipulate physical reality, and explains how to utilize that power to bring control and abundance into every aspect of your life.

An unprecedented account that is inspirational, thought provoking and richly enlightening, this book will resonate in your heart and mind long after the last words have been read. A must read for anyone on a spiritual path or seeking greater knowledge and personal power.

August 2016 Edition, Kindle page count 233 (estimated, actual count varies depending on reading device used).
