    New Book Explores the Virtues—and Dangers—of Spiritual Teachers


    Minneapolis, MN, April 6, 2017 ? A spiritual teacher isn't an ordinary member of the clergy. They are a perceptive, caring, trustworthy human being who provides one-to-one, in-depth spiritual direction.

    Celebrities such as Madonna and Russell Brand, and writers such as Elizabeth Gilbert and Deepak Chopra, have all worked with spiritual teachers. So have millions of people from almost every major religious tradition—as well as millions of others who are spiritual but not religious.

    A new book, The User's Guide to Spiritual Teachers, provides invaluable guidance for anyone who is curious about spiritual teachers—or who wants to work with one but doesn't know how or where to begin.

    This user-friendly book also offers practical wisdom for anyone who already has a spiritual teacher, and wants to make the most of that relationship.

    Still more important, The User's Guide to Spiritual Teachers helps readers spot and avoid the predators, narcissists, charlatans, and cult leaders who call themselves spiritual teachers—and who have ruined many people's lives.

    The book's author, Scott Edelstein, has studied happily and productively with spiritual teachers for the past four decades. He has also served as editor and literary agent for several spiritual teachers. A longtime practitioner of both Judaism and Buddhism, he is a committed proponent of serious spirituality in all forms and traditions.

    The User's Guide to Spiritual Teachers was published on March 21 by Wisdom Publications. Wisdom also published Edelstein's previous book, Sex and the Spiritual Teacher, which examines the all-too-common problem of sexual misconduct among spiritual teachers.

    Edelstein's website on spiritual teachers, www.thespiritualteachersite.com, provides more information on the subject, as well as book excerpts, related articles, and links to media interviews with Edelstein.

    UP PRESENTS THE UP ORIGINAL SPECIAL “A SPECIAL NIGHT WITH STEVE HARVEY: ACT LIKE A SUCCESS, THINK LIKE A SUCCESS” An Inspirational One-Man Show Based on Harvey's #1 New York Times Bestselling Book

    Taped Before a Live Audience in Chicago, Premieres Wednesday, October 29 at 9 p.m. EDT

    ATLANTA – October 28, 2014 – TV personality, comedian, radio show host and author Steve Harvey comes to primetime on UP in an exclusive one-man show, "A Special Night with Steve Harvey: Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success." Taped before a live audience at Chicago's Harris Theater for Music and Dance in Millennium Park, the UP Original Special brings to life inspirational and practical themes about how to succeed in life and the keys to fulfilling one's mission as presented in Harvey’s #1New York Times bestselling book, Act Like A Success, Think Like A Success. The one-hour UP Original Special will premiere on Wednesday, October 29 at 9 p.m. EDT.

    Emotional, impactful, enlightening and often times hilarious, in the UP Special, Harvey brings to life his tenets for success as described in Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success, Discovering Your Gift and the Way to Life’s Riches book. Now an accomplished entrepreneur and esteemed philanthropist, Harvey shares his personal story with the audience – including how he struggled to gain success from, at one point, being homeless and living out of his car – and introduces five of his tenets to success.

    Before a packed-to-capacity audience, Harvey relays lively anecdotes from his own life, practical advice and truthful insights on how to achieve one’s dreams using the gift(s) each person already has. He shares his thoughts about how that gift holds each person’s greatest chance at success and the fulfillment of their life mission and purpose. Through his five tenets, he enlightens viewers that one’s passion is not the same as one’s gift. He encourages people to define their gift – whether it’s being a problem solver, a people-connector, a whiz with numbers, or having an eye for colors. While one's gift can be used professionally, it is also central to relationships, marriage, the community and ultimately touches upon every aspect of life.

    "Steve Harvey is an extraordinary talent whose style captures and mesmerizes the minds of people, particularly everyday people,” said Brad Siegel, vice chairman, UP. His new #1 New York Times bestselling book, Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success, is a wonderfully uplifting, inspirational and practical guide to becoming the best that you can be in all facets of life. This special provides a highly entertaining and enlightening roadmap to help every individual fulfill their dreams and completely aligns with UP’s mission of uplifting our viewers.”

    Harvey said, “This is the best special I’ve ever done, it will be my best contribution to the very people who have supported me over the years… I want to help change people’s direction in life to a higher state of being… I want people to experience the joy of success and the process!”

    Hosted by Steve Harvey. Produced by Black Robin Media. Executive produced by Steve Harvey, Lynne Robinson and Rushion McDonald. Technical Director and Director of Photography is Keith Walker. Editor is Derek Allen.

    Waiting for Heaven: Finding Beauty in the Pain and the Struggle Shows That All Things Are Possible Through God's Love


    Phoenix, AZ, July 29, 2014 - Heather Gillis remembers her tragedy of losing a child in Waiting for Heaven: Finding Beauty in the Pain and the Struggle (WestBow Press).

    Gillis and her husband anxiously anticipated the birth of their third child, Bowen. He arrived on April 7th, the same day as his father's birthday. However, the dreams of a healthy baby were shattered the moment Bowen was born. Immediately, doctors took him to the neonatal intensive care unit for testing, and soon diagnosed him with polycystic kidney disease (PKD), an illness fatal in babies. Thirteen days later, Bowen died in his parents' arms.

    Waiting for Heaven is Gillis' story of rediscovering herself after her son's death. Heather shares how the pain of child loss can be devastating and crippling, but she also describes how to find joy and beauty in the pain, through God's love.

    Through Bowen's short life and death she and her husband discovered the true meaning of God's grace and in honor of Bowen, they founded Bowen's Hope through which they serve kidney disease kids and their families. Her infinite compassion for others, regardless of her own loss, is both remarkable and inspiring.

    Heather also used her love of running to ease the pain. This love qualified her for the 2013 Boston Marathon. Gillis crossed the finish line before the bombings hit, realizing we're never exempt from tragedy. Life's marathon can be grueling, but Heather shares the steps toward hope and healing.

    About the Author:
    Heather Gillis resides in Phoenix with her two living children and husband, Mac. She works part-time as a certified registered nurse anesthetist. As the founders of Bowen's Hope, Heather and Mac are devoted to helping kidney disease kids and their families. Proceeds from the sale of Heather's book benefit Bowen's Hope.

    - Death And Life Are In The Power Of Your Words -
    by Nathan Malan


    Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it, shall eat the fruit of it, for death or life - Proverbs 18:21(AMP)
    Whose tongue or mouth has the power of death and life? Does the tongue or mouth of God, Jesus, angels or the devil have the power of death and life or does our tongue or mouth have the power of death and life? According to the Bible, if death and life is in the power of our words, does that mean death and life is not in the hands of God, Jesus, angels or the devil? And if death and life is in the power of our words, is sickness and healing also in the power of our words and is insecurity and protection in the power of our words, and so on?

    This day, I(God) call heaven and earth, as witnesses against you(humans), that I have set before you, life and death, blessings and curses. Now (you) choose life, so that you and your children may live - Deuteronomy 30:19(NIV)
    If God was going to choose for us, why did He command us to choose, for ourselves? Is God going to do for us, what He has told us to do for ourselves? And if we do not choose for ourselves, are the situations, circumstances or events going to choose for us and are we going to like their choice?

    Whatever you(humans) forbid on earth, will be forbidden by heaven, and whatever you(humans) permit on earth, will be permitted by heaven - Matthew 18:18(NIV)
    Who did Jesus say, is in charge in the earth? And who has the responsibilty of forbidding or permitting, what happens or does not happen in the earth or our lives? Is God, Jesus, angels or the devil responsible for what happens or does not happen in the earth? And if anyone should know, as to who is responsible in the earth, shouldn't Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior know?

    God said, Let Us(Father, Son & Holy Spirit) make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them(humans) have complete authority..........upon the earth - Genesis 1:26(AMP)
    How much authority did God give humans in the earth? And after God gave humans complete authority in the earth, does God still have complete authority in the earth? What are humans doing with the complete authority that God gave them in Genesis? Are humans aware of the complete authority, that God gave them and are they using it? So, if something happens or doesn't happen in the earth, is God, who gave humans complete authority in the earth responsible or are humans, who were given complete authority in the earth responsible?

    Therefore, be imitators of God, copy Him and follow His example, as well-beloved children, imitate their father - Ephesians 5:1(AMP)
    How do we imitate God and how does God operate? Does God create and change situations, circumstances and events by speaking the Word of God? Can we also change, shape or influence our situations, circumstances and events by speaking the very same Word of God, that created the world?

    By the Word of the Lord God was the world created - Psalm 33:6(NIV)
    Can situations, circumstances and events in the world, that was created by God speaking, the Word of God, be changed or transformed by humans speaking the very same Word of God?

    I(Jesus) tell you(humans) the truth, anyone who has faith in Me, will do what I have been doing. And he will do even greater things than these - John 14:12(NIV)
    Is Jesus really saying, that those who believe in Him, can also do the things, that He did and even much more? Does that mean Biblical Christians can change or shape their lives by speaking the Word of God just like Jesus did?

    I(God) am alert and active, watching over My Word to perform it - Jeremiah 1:12(AMP)
    How can God perform, the Word of God in our lives, if the Word of God is not present in our lives? And how can the Word of God be present in our lives, if the Word of God is not coming out of our mouths regularly?

    So then, faith comes by hearing and hearing of the Word of God - Romans 10:17(NKJV)
    If faith comes by hearing the Word of God with our ears, how can we hear the Word of God with our ears, if our mouth is not speaking the Word of God? And how can we speak the Word of God, if we do not know, what it says?

    The Pressures of Life


    - By Bishop Matthew A. Barber
    aka ~ The Encourager ~ -


    God, teach me lessons for living so I can stay the course. Give me insight so I can do what you tell me, my whole life, one long, obedient response. Psalm 119:33-34 Message Bible.

    pressure -
    1 a : the burden of physical or mental distress

    b : the constraint of circumstance :

    the weight of social or economic imposition

    2 : the application of force to something by something else in direct contact with it

    Inspirational
    life:
    1 a : the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body

    b : a principle or force that is considered to underlie the distinctive quality of animate beings

    c : an organismic state characterized by capacity for metabolism, growth, reaction to stimuli, and reproduction

    2 a : the sequence of physical and mental experiences that make up the existence of an individual

    b : one or more aspects of the process of living

    3 : spiritual existence transcending physical death

    Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life
    One of the biggest challenges of being self-employed is actually being alone in your business. You are alone with your thoughts for the majority of time and, sometimes, to your own detriment. You can change your life by changing your thoughts. Here's what I mean: Everything in this world once started with a single thought. Look around you right now. Everything in the room including this computer screen was once just a thought in someone's head.

    Our Thoughts Create Endowed with this gift, we are able to mold our own lives and create our destiny. Our lives today are the direct result of our past and present thoughts, feelings, words, emotions, and desires. Any time we don't like something in our lives, we can acknowledge that our past thoughts might have had something to do with this. Once we understand that we have created everything in our life, good and bad, we realize that we also have the power to change anything in our life by merely changing our thoughts.

    Thought Is Energy
    When we think a thought, it is projected into the universe at a certain rate of vibration. Thoughts are also magnetic and attract energy of the same vibration. This is the universal “Law of Attraction” Chose your thoughts well. “Like attracts like” In 1937, Napoleon Hill stated in his famous book, Think and Grow Rich, that 'thoughts are things' and that 'whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, he will achieve.' You are an achiever. Think well and you will grow rich.

    America is not a place where people live rather it has become a place where people work! Maybe America’s lack of family and friend connections and apathy towards one another is probably not a big surprise to many, I want you to realize just how bad this situation really is? Has anyone witnessed how poorly friendships and relationships are maintained? Have people you once considered as your closest friends, become an irrelevant part of your life lately? How are friendships and relationships given such a low place on the totem pole? Is this simply a part of our human nature or is it the society in which we live in, that causes such behavior?

    Personally, having traveled to other countries, I believe that this phenomenon is mostly a result of American values. Instant gratification is such an important part of the American psyche that having to drive 10 - 15 or 20 minutes to see an old friend is viewed as an inconvenience. Who really has the time or how many are willing to take the time? We are so busy with our own work lives and schedules, that we don’t have time to eat right, exercise, or properly manage our finances. So you see with all of these things going on, there is definitely no time for “Interpersonal Connections”. Have we become so ingrained to believe that we are the most important person in the world that the world should cater to us. Some people expect from others, things that they don’t even expect from their own-selves. Thing such as fairness, sacrifice, compromise, commitment, loyalty and trust. There are some Countries and perhaps you may know of some, that have very strong family connections, they are so intertwined in each others lives constantly that nobody and nothing can tear them apart! Their economies may have even been in shambles at one time, but they were still happy! It is a psychological fact (dealing with our mental and emotional state of mind or our Attitude) that the number one predictor of happiness is, people feeling a connection to others. It is said that America is supposedly the wealthiest place on earth and yet Americans are also some of the most un-happiest people!

    With money you can: Buy a house: But not a home With money you can: But a clock: But not time With money you can: Buy a bed: But not sleep With money you can: But a book: But not knowledge With money you can: See a doctor: but not good health With money you can: But a position: But not respect With money you can: Buy blood: But not life With money you can: Buy sex: But not love.

    Living here, you miss the one thing that is truly important for happiness and longevity that is connection to other human beings. The problem with being a leader is that you can't be sure if people are following you or chasing you. Mother Teresa of Calcutta was a prime example of a person who had accessed the ultimate spiritual power. In all of her service to mankind, she continually turned toward God. She was not concerned with the comforts of the world, for she had chosen a path of complete selfless service. This appears to have been Mother Theresa’s creed. We could all benefit from following her guidelines. “The Final Analysis” People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone may destroy overnight; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it is all between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway.

    When you walk through the storm hold your head up high and don't be afraid of the dark at the end of the storm there's a golden sky and the sweet silver song of the lark. Walk on, through the wind, walk on through the rain, though your dreams be tossed and blown. Walk on, with hope in your heart and you'll never walk alone!

    Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions.Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become character. Watch your character, for it determines your Destiny. Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. Remember “There Is Hope” If your heart can conceive it, if your mind can believe it, and if your spirit can receive it, then your physical being can and will achieve it! Stay Strong and Stay Focused. Be the change you want to see in the world! And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Phil 4:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Tim 1:7

    Remember that God didn’t Promise days without pain. Laughter without sorrow or sun without rain, but God did Promise Strength for the day, Comfort for tears and a Light for the way. And for all who believe in His Kingdom above, He Answers their faith with Everlasting Love. The Steadfast Love of the Lord Never Ceases, His Mercies Never come to an End; they are New Every Morning. Lamentations 3:23

    It is going to get better you are feeling all alone your pain is very real it seems to be no way out just look above, and deep inside. You can survive it is going to get better, just stick around weeping may endure for a night, but joy will come. There is hope it is going to get better, don't throw your life away. You are worth much more than gold, even though you were not told, that each day is a gift so live and watch your miracles unfold you will survive. Things will really soon get much brighter, the sun is going to shine again you just hang on in there, and you will be much stronger than you feel. Love has brought you this far and it will lead you to that light, I promise you that it is going to get better.

    1 Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

    2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

    3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.

    4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

    5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.

    6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.

    7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.

    8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.

    9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.

    10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

    11 Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.

    12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

    13 Return, O Lord, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.

    14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

    15 Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.

    16 Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.

    17 And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it. Psalm 90: 1-17 KJV

    In My Book - God Is Not On Recess - Page 94 God Has Kept Me Here For A Reason!

    God has kept me here for a reason. I survived because He has a plan for me. All my bad relationships, the severe illnesses, the addictions, the consequences, the bad credit, the repossessions, the death of my loved ones, the disappointment of those who I thought were friends, the negative thoughts, or the lack of support; I made it because I am blessed! I release and let go of all past hurts, misunderstandings, and grudges because I am abundantly blessed! I recognize them as the illusions they are, and sent from the enemy to kill my spirit, steal my joy, and destroy my faith; For God is all there is. All else is a lie!

    Words of Wisdom True Meaning of Success in This Life. When you lose money - you have lost something of little consequence. When you lose health - you have lost something of greater consequence. But when you lose peace and joy in your life - you have lost the greatest treasure God has given you.

    He Is The God Of More Than Enough
    "In times of disaster they will not wither; in days of famine they will enjoy plenty" Psalm 37:19 NIV. Remember, there is no recession in heaven, but if you are not investing in God’s economy, you won't see the reward He has for you. It Is Time To Move Past Your Past It Is Time To Move Past Your Mountain.

    Let me ask you, do you go out each day knowing that favor is already in your future? Or have you gotten stuck in a rut staring at a mountain of disappointment, setbacks or difficulty? That is what happened to the people of Israel. They were headed toward their promised land. They had big goals and big dreams, but along the way they hit some setbacks and had some disappointments. They got so discouraged that they gave up on their dreams and just settled where they were. One day God said to them, "You have dwelt long enough on this mountain." Duet 1:6 NIV. He was saying, "It is time to move past this and embrace the blessing in your future."

    I believe God is saying that to each one of us right now, that we have been where you are long enough. God is saying, "This is a new day. Get your Fire back. Get your Joy back. Because where you are Now is not where you are supposed to Stay." I Challenge YOU To Press Past Your Mountains, Press Past Your Disappointments, Press Past Your Setbacks so that You can and will Embrace ALL of the Promises and Victories of God.

    Starting from today and the rest of your life, you are moving from glory to glory. Anything you lay your hands upon shall prosper in Jesus Name. Your dreams will not die. Your plans will not fail, your destiny will not be aborted and the desires of your heart will be granted today and in the days to come. Money will know your name and address from now on. Your minimum will now become your maximum, your mess will now become your miracle, and your stresses will now become your blessings. Heaven have confirmed today as the end of your sufferings, sorrows and pain, because He that sits on the Throne has remembered you. He has taken away the hardship and given you joy. He will never let you down. He keeps His promises. Now Say A Big Amen!
