Last Chance: A Stepbrother Romance

by Miles Camp

He’s back…

Jacob and Ben never saw eye to eye when they were younger, mostly because they were dragged unwillingly under the same roof to live as stepbrothers. Ben kept his distance, because he always felt that Jacob didn’t want to let him in.

But now, he’s back.

Jacob turns up just as Ben is at the cusp of putting together the event that could make or break his career, throwing everything into disarray. It’s unexpected, confusing, and makes Ben question everything. Everything with Jacob is exactly the same, he still feels completely out of sorts with him.

Yet everything is different too…

Ben doesn’t know what it is, but it feels huge, thrilling, and oddly right. Like maybe the one thing he’s always been looking for has been under his nose the entire time. All he needs to do now is give it a chance.

As a token of our appreciation, we’ve included some really hot steamy Gay Romances for your pleasure!

Racism and Reality

by Alan Philowitz

Racism is the belief that characteristics and abilities can be attributed to people on the basis of race, and that some racial groups are superior to others. Throughout history, racism and discrimination have been used as social weapons to encourage fear and hatred toward others in times of economic hardship and war. For many individuals, the individual rights that have been ignored and violated by governments throughout history and resulted in a disregard for communities’ cultures and customs led to racial caste systems. At its worst, racism has led to government endorsed genocide, and it is clear that when ethnocentrism is fostered within society that it negatively impacts every area of life within it. Societies that support racism do not allow for the collective contribution of all their citizens, and the denial of human and educational rights of groups of people within societies causes a lack of social and economic progress of nations. By prohibiting the participation of individuals on the basis of race within society, a society becomes increasingly ethnocentric, and this results in a failure of community social development because people become unable to appreciate others’ differences and similarities.

by Sociedad Agni Yoga Hispana

En ellos se presenta una síntesis de antiguas creencias del Oriente el pensamiento occidental moderno y un puente entre lo espiritual y lo científico.

Es el yoga de la energía ardiente, de la conciencia y del pensamiento responsablemente dirigido.

Afirma la existencia de la Jerarquía de la Luz y el centro del Corazón como el vínculo con la Jerarquía y los mundos distantes.

The Community of the Ark: A Visit with Lanza del Vasto, His Fellow Disciples of Mahatma Gandhi, and Their Utopian Community in France (20th Anniversary Edition)

by Mark Shepard

France’s Community of the Ark is one of the past century’s most successful experiments in utopian living. Founded by Lanza del Vasto, a Christian disciple of Mahatma Gandhi, it offers an inspiring model for a nonviolent society. Mark Shepard shared the life of this remarkable community for six weeks in 1979 and reported on what he found. ///////////////////////////////////////////////// Mark Shepard is the author of “Mahatma Gandhi and His Myths,” “The Community of the Ark,” and “Gandhi Today,” called by the American Library Association’s Booklist “a masterpiece of committed reporting.” His writings on social alternatives have appeared in over 30 publications in the United States, Canada, England, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Japan, and India. ///////////////////////////////////////////////// “A joy to read.” — Ray Olson, American Library Association Booklist, Sept. 1, 1989 “Will be welcomed by many. . . . Highly informative and full of little-known information.” — Harmony, Sept.-Oct 1989 “Shepard is able to transform the community and its members from mere images or abstractions into real individuals with both their [virtues] and their defects. Anyone interested in the history of contemporary communities will profit from Shepard’s keen observations.” — Andre J. M. Prevos, Utopian Studies “Shepard makes the community come alive.” — PRC Newsletter, Spring 1990 ///////////////////////////////////////////////// SAMPLE Palm Sunday. The bell in the tower tolls, first weakly, but quickly building up strength to a full-bodied tone — then stops abruptly. When I reach the courtyard of the main building, there are already people there, talking in small groups — people from La Borie Noble, from the Ark’s other villages, and guests from the local area; others are still on their way on the paths from La Flayssiere and Nogaret. The people of the Ark wear their festival clothes, handmade all from white wool: the men with their heavy sweaters and pants, the women with their long dresses, and many of both with hooded cloaks down to their feet. The children rush around among the adults, then after a while pass out boughs for the adults to hold. The sun shines brightly, though the air hanging between the tree-covered mountain slopes is still icy-cold. Now all gather in a circle, each one holding a bough. Soon the singing begins: a hundred voices raised in stately, full harmonies.    Hallelujah!   Glory to God in the highest heaven   And peace on earth to men of good will. In the music, in the entire scene, the ancient and the modern seem to blend, giving a sense of timelessness. It is as if this could take place anywhere, in any time — while it is surprising to find it at all.
