Secrets of the Talking Jaguar
Secrets of the Talking Jaguar
von Martin Prechtel
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen READ THIS BOOK...REGARDLESS OF SKIN COLOR, 11. Oktober 1998
A previous reviewer called this "a rip-off of Indian culture" after seeing the author in person at a book signing and later "researching" his background. . . . . Please, do not judge a book by its cover or a shaman by his skin. At least read the book's intro by Robert Bly and what he says about "Secrets of the Talking Jaguar."
SHAMANS: "The Mayans call shamans "spirit-lawyers," that is, men or women who go to the spirits and try to argue them into giving a benefit of some sort to human beings. Mayan tradition does not teach that the Gods want people to be sinless or perfect, but to believe that the Gods love beauty, eloquence, fine clothes, great music, fine poems, bravery, high animal spirits, and gratitude."
TONGUES LIKE PUPPIES: "At conferences I've seen men and women weep when Martin Prechtel talks of the complex and rich village life of the Maya. The listeners realize how much more open their lives in youth would have been if their beauty had been honored as the young ones are honored in Santiago Atitlan, and if they'd had a chance to be kissed by the invisible faces "'with tongues like puppies.'" They also weep when they realize how men and women, though they speak separate languages, can fly together like the two wings of a bird."
INDIGENOUS SOUL " . . . If we can be quiet, this book will be a bucket that drops down toward the water of our indigenous soul. All the words that Martin writes here amount to a meditation on this soul as a natural force. Whether we are Swiss or Mayan or American, the indigenous soul, threatened all over the globe, still lives inside each of us. We can rejoice in its abundance, its ingenuity, its determination not only to exist but also to continue giving its gifts, if we will turn and meet it."
Bly says it all. You will experience a "Journey to the Heart of the Indigenous Soul" no matter what your ethnic background or skin color. The indigenous soul is within all of us. Read this book and decide for yourself. -- Bill Arena


First Seal
First Seal
von Roy Boehm
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen The real deal! Truth is stranger than fiction!, 12. Juni 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: First Seal (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Without doubt, one of the best books ever written about warfare and warriors and specifically the world's ultimate special warfare units including UDT, SEALs and Army Special Forces. . . , Who are these guys? What makes them tick? And what kind of man did it take to start up and train and lead these incredible warriors. Roy Boehm, of course, "Papa-san SEAL numbah one." He tells it all with the unique insight only a true leader of men who's been there and done it all could possibly explain. "Psychiatrists have had field days trying to figure out what kind of man it takes to succeed . . . Trying to predict who might endure the torture of pain, fatigue, humiliation, mental and physical exhaustion, cold and heat," he writes. "The profile of the ideal candidate calls for a man drug free, morally acceptable (within certain reasonable limits), capable of passing a security check, intelligent, and naturally phlegmatic under pressure. He must have endurance, physical strength, a high threshold for pain and discomfort, and a sense of humor in order to endure immense stress without falling apart." An incredible book about incredible warriors! "FIRST SEAL" is the real deal!

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best self-help books ever written!, 3. Juni 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Psycho-Cybernetics (Taschenbuch)
I first read this book as a college freshman in the early 1970's and found it stunning, insightful and tremendously helpful. Now, after all these years, I pulled it off the shelf and read it again, and surprise -- it still contains the same ageless wisdom and insights and things I knew in my heart but had simply forgotten. This is a classic self-help book that will benefit anyone who takes the time to sit down and digest the material. Exists on the same lofty plateau as Og Mandino's "Greatest Salesman in the World" and Napolean Hill's "Think & Grow Rich." Outstanding book!

Preis: EUR 9,49

5.0 von 5 Sternen Compelling, disturbing, authentic....Fantastic Read!, 27. Mai 1998
After viewing segment about David Morehouse on TV's "Unsolved Mysteries," I immediately checked out this book on amazon.com and read the reviews listed below with great interest. If you want to learn more about psychic work and the spiritual side of our being and the incredible "sixth sense" powers developed by certain people, this book will absolutely knock you out! In a subject category populated by more than a few authors of "questionable" background and zero scientific expertise of the subject matter, this writer's credentials are exemplary...son of career military father, strong religious background in Morman church, graduate of BYU, highly-decorated U.S. Army officer and later elite Airborne Ranger Company Commander, Morehouse is obviously a person of great patriotism, loyalty, courage, conviction, integrity and intelligence. A tremendous book about the real-life inside background of the government's top-secret Stargate Program. Excellent read! It'll send you off "into the ether" and make you rethink many commonly-held notions about psychic abilities and individuals capable of using their paranormal gifts to transcend time and space. The book cover's notation is true -- "Psychic Warrior" really does portray a real-life "X-Files." Great book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Tremendous story of courage & inspiration! Must Read!, 1. Mai 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Still Me (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Inspiring, first-person account of one man and his family who's always lived his life to the fullest in everything he's ever done . . . then, instantly, his life changed. Christopher Reeve says in this book: "When a catastrope happens it's easy to feel so sorry for yourself that you can't even see anybody around you. But the way out of that misery is through your relationships. The way out of that misery or obsession is to focus more on what your little boy needs or what your teenagers need or what other people around you need. It's very hard to do, and often you have to force yourself. But that is the answer to the dilemma of being forzen--at least it's the answer I found." . . . . . . . . . . . . This is a great book to take somewhere quiet and private and just sit down and read.I was humbled and inspired at the same time. Christopher Reeve is a modern day hero who tells it like it is! This man lives life to the fullest, always has, still does.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding for all martial artists of all levels, 8. Dezember 1997
I'm constantly adding to my library of martial arts books and ordered this one based strictly on the huge number of positive Amazon book reviews which accompany its listing. I have to confirm what everyone else says -- Forest Morgan hits home with solid information that is viable for all martial artists from white belt to black belt. Although I study Taekwondo myself, I certainly have great respect for all martial arts styles and always learn something of value from each of them. The real beauty of "Living the Martial Way" is its accuracy and profound insights that apply to martial artists of all styles and ranks and backgrounds. Outstanding book, belongs right up there with the classics of this field.

The Messengers: A True Story of Angelic Presence and the Return to the Age of Miracles
von G.W. Hardin
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 49,50

5.0 von 5 Sternen More then angels! Tremendous true story! Very insightful!, 17. August 1997
Absolutely stunning, true story of communications with angels which finally result in scientifically-based, past-life regression sessions with Nick Bunick. As I perused the previous Amazon on-line reviews of this book it becomes painfully clear that readers either love the book (I certainly do) or hate it (and they're pretty darn vocal about it). Bunick, a very successful Oregon businessman, is today experiencing the very same "love it or hate it" response to his message that Paul of Tarsus also experienced in his time on earth. It is the most profound book of religion, spirituality, love and "real-life" insights into the teachings of "Jeshua" (Jesus) that's been published in years. If you're open-minded and enjoy religion and/or spirituality and/or mankind's relationship to angels and/or the divine spark that resides within each of us, "The Messengers" will hit you like a lighting bolt of powerful, love-filled, spiritual energy. It's more than just angels, more than stories of Paul, more than reincarnation . . . it's about that infinite, intangible, real part of God that lives within each and every one of us. Excellent book
