A beautifully illustrated look at the forces that help cities grow—and eventually cause their destruction—told through the stories of the great civilizations of ancient America. You may think you know all of the American cities. But did you know that long before New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, or Boston ever appeared on the map—thousands of years before Europeans first colonized North America—other cities were here? They grew up, fourished, and eventually disappeared in the same places that modern cities like St. Louis and Mexico City would later appear. In the pages of this book, you'll find the astonishing story of how they grew from small settlements to booming city centers—and then crumbled into ruins.

"This is one book you CAN judge by its cover!" Dan Lyons President, World Business Capital Corp. Richland, WA How important are language and words, right and wrong believing, thinking and speaking? What is life all about and where is it heading? Is death the end with one destiny? Is there a real Satan, and is Hell a real place or an overused metaphor? Do angels really exist? Are we really created in the image of God and if so, what does that mean? Where is the mind? As important as these questions are, it seems that most people have forgotten to ask them. Who bewitched them? Are there in fact ultimate answers to the ultimate questions? In this book, Author Richard W. Menear, Ph.D. addresses these topics and many others. Humanity's distance from God and closeness to the enemy. Religion, ethics and standards being reduced to a trash pile. Sin. Man's view vs. God's view. Specific moral issues like abortion, homosexuality, infidelity. The resurrection of the body. What Hell is really like! Explained in depth, Dr. Menear explores the plight of fallen mankind and unmasks the enemy's deceptions designed to destroy, and to replace scriptural truth. All these mysteries have been revealed to the world through God's Son, and are examined here. This book will take you on your solo journey that includes the most important aspects of life from the beginning to end just like God said it would be! Richard W.

William Blake (1757-1827) was a poet of striking originality, whose poetic world of myth and mysticism continues to fascinate.By turns a haunting lyricist, an apocalyptic visionary, and an unorthodox thinker, Blake was for years ignored or derided. Sustained by his belief in the artistic imagination, he drafted poetry, prose visions, and epigrams, and manufactured beautiful illustrated volumes of his lyrics and versenarratives. Towards the end of his life, Blake's unique and irreducible talent was recognized by a group of younger artists, who rescued much of his achievement from oblivion.This selection represents the full range of Blake's accomplishment as a poet, ranging from early Poetical Sketches to late lyrics, and including such major works as The Book of Thel, Songs of Innocence, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, Visions of the Daughters of Albion, America, Songs ofExperience, and Europe.The collection is chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition, with Michael Mason's introduction and notes providing the ideal guide to a remarkable oeuvre.

The Awakened Ones

While a rational consciousness grasps many truths, Gananath Obeyesekere believes an even richer knowledge is possible through a bold confrontation with the stuff of visions and dreams. Spanning both Buddhist and European forms of visionary experience, he fearlessly pursues the symbolic, nonrational depths of such phenomena, reawakening the intuitive, creative impulses that power greater understanding. Throughout his career, Obeyesekere has combined psychoanalysis and anthropology to illuminate the relationship between personal symbolism and religious experience. In this book, he begins with Buddha's visionary trances wherein, over the course of four hours, he witnesses hundreds of thousands of his past births and eons of world evolution, renewal, and disappearance. He then connects this fracturing of empirical and visionary time to the realm of space, considering the experience of a female Christian penitent, who stares devotedly at a tiny crucifix only to see the space around it expand to mirror Christ's suffering. Obeyesekere follows the unconscious motivations underlying rapture, the fantastical consumption of Christ's body and blood, and body mutilation and levitation, bridging medieval Catholicism and the movements of early modern thought as reflected in William Blake's artistic visions and poetic dreams. He develops the term "dream-ego" through a discussion of visionary journeys, Carl Jung's and Sigmund Freud's scientific dreaming, and the cosmic and erotic dream-visions of New Age virtuosos, and he defines the parameters of a visionary mode of knowledge that provides a more elastic understanding of truth. A career-culminating work, this volume translates the epistemology of Hindu and Buddhist thinkers for western audiences while revitalizing western philosophical and scientific inquiry.
