Beyond Life! Beyond Death! is a post colonial statement on the life of the post modern man, who has suffered emotional, psychological, and spiritual erosion, as a result of which he has lost his mental balance, and his physical shape too. He is a distorted figure now, beyond recognition, and in search of his redemption as a human being, which is eluding him, because, religion has failed to come to his rescue, no prophet can salvage him now, that he has slipped down the 'wasteland' into the 'wretchedland'. In this dark atmsophere, spiritual regeneration alone can help him out of this morass, for which, man will have to look beyond religion, into the possibilities of living in spirituality, which is a bypass and connects man directly with the divine, using love is the binding force, rather than fear on which religious establishment is built.

The author Sri Anil Sharma was born in Ambala, India. He graduated as an electrical engineer in 1980, after which he travelled for a period of three years throughout the Indian subcontinent, in search of the truth. Since 1993 over a period of seven years he read more than nine hundred books written and referred to by great spiritual masters, attained various siddhis, toured many countries around the world and gave lectures. This book is the outcome of his spiritual experiences and guidance received from sages and spiritual masters during deep states of meditation. However, inspite of experiencing the rising of cosmic currents in his body, having attained a heightened awareness of reality, and achieving many tasks in spirituality, like writing books and genuinely helping many aspirants in the path of spirituality, his own quest of knowing and gaining personal experience of self realisation remained unfulfilled. In the year 2000 he came across the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi, in whom he found all the answers to his spiritual quest and took him as his Sat guru. The author currently resides in Australia, works in his profession and also runs a small centre in Sydney called Sage Sri Ramana Maharshi Centre of Learning Sydney
Using today's most leading-edge therapies and breakthroughs in the science of longevity, C. Norman Shealy, one of the pioneering holistic physicians of our time, shows how we can healthfully age to one hundred, and beyond. The idea of living well beyond one hundred years-and enjoying those years in good health-used to be the stuff of science fiction. No longer. C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., whom Caroline Myss calls a "wizard-genius-scientist-mystic-physician," offers Life Beyond 100: Secrets of the Fountain of Youth. In this deeply learned and revolutionary book, Dr. Shealy provides a new concept of longevity, one that reveals that we can live far longer than current science suggests. Basic healthy living and the use of alternative therapies have long been touted as "the way" to well-being, but Dr. Shealy takes these tenets a step further. From the physiology of stress and its effect on the human mind and body to the importance of DHEA; from the proven techniques of photostimulation and biofeedback training to groundbreaking suggestions for alleviating depression; from Shealy's electromagnetic framework of life to his recommendations for optimal health, Life Beyond 100 presents a detailed roadmap to achieve healthy aging-or "youthing." The result of years of clinical practice and cutting-edge research, Life Beyond 100 also exposes the fallacies behind many of the claims made by the medical establishment and the pharmaceutical industry. Shealy argues that rather than increasing people's life expectancy, these two groups create the opposite effect, consigning hundreds of thousands of people to an often miserable and premature old age by treating symptoms with an antidote-prescription medicine-that is often worse than the ailment itself. As a counterpoint, Life Beyond 100 provides the most ambitious- yet medically grounded and commonsensical-longevity program available. Easy to follow and supported by advanced research, Dr. Shealy's guide to uncovering the secrets of youthful aging redefines the concept of human longevity and offers a new vision of healthy living to one hundred and beyond.

Witnessing first hand how the federal government works from an active stint in the Navy and continuing it with federal service gave me the ability to see what was awry in each organization. At the 12 year mark, I saw so much that made me ponder what could be done differently in organizations. When I was an intern and went through downsizing it gave me a deep appreciation for how the people were treated and how management was at the forefront of decision making and outcomes for the people. That led me to one of the most important works of my life to look at downsizing and how it was handled in federal organizations. When I started to research this organizational ailment I realized that even the Comptroller General, David Walker felt that there was a human capital crisis in the government. He said that it threatened national security (Walker, 2001; Voinovich, 2001). Unfortunately, the government and many other employers have all too often treated their employees as a cost to be cut rather than an asset to be valued (Walker, 2001). A U. S. General Accounting Office (GAO) (2000) study reported that many of the human capital problems that the Department of Defense (DOD) deals with today are the result of its approach to downsizing in the early 1990s (GAO). This outcome results in layoff survivors who possess an emotive outcome inherent with being a survivor, incurring layoff survivor sickness and being among the organization's walking wounded. As organizations change, downsizing will continue and management and leadership will play a crucial role in the future of downsizing and its impact on the relationships and behaviors of employees (leader and member) (O'Neill & Lenn, 1995). The federalgovernment calls it a buzz word like "transformation" or "rightsizing" and management thinks that they have done something right. I often wondered how these managers could cut the organization support ranks to the bone and have no regard for how the private sector dealt with the outcome of these decisions that were not always the best. My passion for the way the government managed was sparked by a meeting and presentation by Dr. Paul Light, who informed me well about what the government was doing. After that, I was attending courses at the Defense Acquisition University at Ft Belvoir, I spent many hours in the library and did some research on this subject. One day I found an article that dealt with Leader Member Exchange (LMX), Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) and Organizational Commitment (OC) written by an Air Force Major, Yolanda Truckenbrodt. This book extends the study by Dr. Yolanda Truckenbrodt (2000) who provided an implication on her empirical examination of the quality of the relationship of the leader-member exchange, organizational citizenship behavior, and organizational commitment constructs that a replication should be done on civilian federal workers. The study that I did extends further to include the population of federal survivors in a downsized organization. The ultimate goal was to examine the implications of downsizing by the federal government within a theoretical framework that focuses on civilians in the largest aspect of the federal workforce, the DOD who represent resilience and continuity. The Problem with Downsizing Allen, Freeman, Russell, Reizenstein, and Rentz (2001) studied 106 managers who experienced downsizing and provided data regardingorganizational commitment, turnover intentions, job involvement, role clarity, role overload, satisfaction with top management, and satisfaction with job security at three different times. Although the results generally indicated that downsizing had a significant impact on work attitudes that the impact varied over time, and the initial impact was generally negative, also indicated that changes related to satisfaction with top management and job security were significantly related to changes in organizational commitment. In the federal government, the managem
David Fontana examines all the evidential material that has been accumulated about the afterlife. He looks at communications through mediums and witness accounts such as Near Death and Out of Body Experiences (NDEs and OBEs ) and compares them with the descriptions given in such mystical texts as The Tibetan Book of the Dead and The Egyptian Book of the Dead. He explores the whole area of human consciousness and considers the question: if the body and the brain perish at death, what remains to survive? The non-physical nature of mind - the theory of 'subtle' bodies - astral, mental and emotional - could it be that there is a survival of memory, emotions and personality characteristics? He looks at the various descriptions of 'Paradise' - how it is portrayed in Western and Eastern traditions. And inevitably this leads to the contemplation of the meaning of existence - and what is meant by the union with the Divine. Do we create our own reality? What about the existence of infinite possibilities.
WANT TO LIVE LIFE BEYOND YOUR CONFUSION AND FEAR? Taylor suggests we are a society in mourning with few adult tools to grieve.'The continual threat of terrorism and war coupled with current stresses of daily life leave us afraid and confused-triggering childhood wounds and adult doubts about our ability to cope. Many of us express this unresolved confusion, fear, grief and tension through compulsive and addictive behaviors. We may eat too much, drink, drug or smoke too much, love, shop, work, gamble or worry too much. But we begin to live out of fear rather than faith-compulsion rather than choice-isolation rather than unity as we long to anchor our safety into something predictable and secure" 'Our stress," Taylor states, 'if not resolved, gets expressed through mal-adaptive methods of coping which ultimately reveal themselves in physical ailments or injuries, psychological unrest, spiritual isolation or addictive and compulsive behaviors." Taylor's Six-Cycle Model offers a viable and creative way out. She takes addiction beyond the ordinary realm of twelve step meetings and abstinence-suggesting our addictive behaviors are actually gifts from our Soul. She invites readers to embrace what lies underneath their confusion and their fear as she guides them through a process which transforms abandonment to union; anger to empowerment; shame to compassion; loneliness to sacred solitude; betrayal to gratitude and fear to faith.
