'Stunning power and beauty abound in this book.' - The New York Times 'Howland recalls the short-story writer Lucia Berlin' - Harper's Magazine 'Honest, acerbic, alert, and always dazzling.' - Amitava Kumar, author of Immigrant, Montana Things to Come and Go showcases the incomparable talent of Bette Howland in three novellas of stunning power, beauty, and sustaining humour. ‘Birds of a Feather’ is a daughter’s story of her extended, first-generation family, the ‘big, brassy yak-yakking Abarbanels’. Esti, a merciless, astute observer, recalls growing up amid (the confusions and difficulties of) their history, quarrels, judgements, and noisy love, and the sense of estrangement and inescapable bonds of blood. The clamour of the city, both its threat and its possibility, are just outside the door in ‘The Old Wheeze’, as a single mother in her twenties returns to her sunless apartment after a date at the ballet. Shifting between four viewpoints – the young woman, the older professor who took her out, her son, and her son’s babysitter – the story masterfully captures the impossibility of liberating ourselves from the self. In ‘The Life You Gave Me’, a woman at the midpoint of life is called to her father’s sickbed. A lament for all that is forever unsaid and unsayable, the story is ‘an anguished meditation on growing up, growing old and being left behind, a complaint against time.’ (The New York Times) First published in 1984, Things to Come and Go, Bette Howland’s final book, is a collection of haunting urgency about arrivals and departures, and the private, insoluble dramas in the lives of three women. This edition features an introduction by Rumaan Alam, bestselling author of Leave the World Behind.

Twelve-year-old Chili Sue Mahoney has never been outside of her small Appalachian town. Momma says Mercy Hill, Kentucky, is her “true home,” but Chili longs to see the world—to have the freedom to leave and to explore. So when Miss Matlock is brought in as the 7th grade substitute teacher, Chili and her classmate Willie Bright are thrilled. Everyone knows Miss Matlock has traveled around the globe. Why she’s come back to her childhood home after all this time is a mystery, but Chili and Willie are eager to befriend her despite the rumors. As the three spend time together, Chili learns about the jungles and deserts and cities of the world. But she also discovers that there’s more to Mercy Hill than she thought: beauty, in the people and places she’s known all her life, and secrets, sometimes where they’re least expected. Told in vignettes and set in 1970s Appalachia, To Come and Go Like Magic is a heartwarming and hopeful debut novel about family, friendship, and the meaning of home.

In his previous book, Being Upright: Zen Meditation and the Bodhisattva Precepts, Reb Anderson Roshi described how we must become thoroughly grounded in conventional truth through the practice of compassion before we can receive the teachings of the ultimate truth. In The Third Turning of the Wheel, he introduces us to the next stage of our journey by invoking the wisdom of the Samdhinirmocana Sutra. According to Anderson, the main purpose behind this enigmatic sutra is to reconcile the apparent contradictions between the original teachings of the historical Buddha and the later teachings of Mahayana Buddhism. Anderson reflects on the great metaphysical questions proposed in the Samdhinirmocana Sutra—the nature of ultimate reality, the structure of human consciousness, the characteristics of phenomena, the stages of meditation, and the essential qualities of a buddha—with the clarity of a scholar and the insight of a practitioner.

Human unconsciousness, which is identification with thought activity, human emotions, and the thinking mind, is the only source of ALL the evil on planet Earth. All evil is the result of humanity living in darkness, not knowing who they are in their essence, beyond their earthly names and physical forms,which causesthem to identify with the world of materiality. The only solution to the darkness of humanity is the light of consciousness, which is disidentification from egoic mind structures, going with the flow of life instead of fighting against it, acceptance of what is, and surrendered action. As we continue to transform individually, the entire world is transformed, because in essence, we are all ONE. Each ONE affects the whole, causing World Transformation through the concept of ONENESS by way of the ONE spiritual energetic force that moves through ALL beings. All organized religions were created by men to condition the masses to think in a certain way, or to point beyond religious belief structures to the Infinite, the formless consciousness we call God. Accepting organized religion as the absolute truth instead of relative truth is the foundation for division and the destruction of the planet. Without the transformation of human consciousness, humans will destroy themselves, each other, and the planet, and are already doing so. If humanity continues to blindly believe the media, organized religion, and all the conditioning tools of the powerful ruling Elite who run the world, without doing their own research, they will be destroyed through lack of knowledge. World Transformation: A Guide To Personal Growth And Consciousness is a transformative book that discusses over 110 life-changing topics to help spiritual seekers in their journeys in consciousness. Learn to be the awareness that is aware of and doesn't become all that you observe. World Transformation begins one person at a time. As you change, the whole world changes, because you are a part of the ONE Consciousness. Gandhi said, "be the change you want to see in the world." As you follow his advice, you become a positive force in the world. "One of the most important books of this generation!" "One of the most profound spiritual books ever written!!" Humanity will destroy themselves if they continue to blindly believe and follow the media, politicians, and organized religion, which are all used by the ruling Elite to control the masses. Most humans don't know what's going on because they allow entertainment, the media, and other brainwashing tools to control their thinking. Mark Twain said, "in religion and politics, people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue, but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions aboutthem were not worth a brass farthing." Social, religious, and other forms of conditioning control the minds of humanity and will destroy them if they continue to accept ideals without analyzation. It is a fact that none of the major religious figures of organized religionactually existed. Their historicity is an unverifiable opinion. Daniel Patrick Moyniham said, "everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts." The existence of all the Saviour Gods are questionable. Humanity only believes in them because of religious conditioning. Humanity as a whole has lost their identity in the world of materiality, also known as the world of form, or the world of things. To identify with something means to mistake a person, place, or thing for who you are, the I AM before I AM a (teacher, lawyer, doctor, student, etc.) Humans have confused millions of forms for their identity. Your invisible indestructible eternal divine essence is consciousness. Common false identities humans mistake for who they are in essence are their jobs, cars, degrees, attractive spouse, belief systems, relationships, knowledge, physical appearance, education, clothes, jewelry, family history, brand names, social status, special ability, thoughts, residence, awards and achievements, race, religious or political affiliations, sports, music, and MILLIONS of other things in the external world.

The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way was written in the second century and is one of the most important works of Nagarjuna, the pioneering commentator on the Buddha's teachings on the Madhyamika or Middle Way view. The subtle analyses presented in this treatise were closely studied and commented upon by many realized masters from the Indo-Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Using Nagarjuna's root text and the great modern master Ju Mipham's commentary as a framework, Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso explains the most important verse from each chapter in the text in a style that illuminates for modern students both the meaning of these profound teachings and how to put them into practice in a way that benefits both oneself and others.

Your new favourite horse racing drama! Reviews for the Good Things Come Series: “Shantz has written a fantastic debut novel set within the behind-the-scenes setting of the (Canadian) racing industry with backdrops of Woodbine and its Queen’s Plate, Churchill Downs…and Snowbird destinations like Gulfstream and Payson Park.” – Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame. "Mixing together hope, heartbreak and romance, a dash of rivalry, and a great deal of excitement, Good Things Come delivers all the goods in terms of top-notch racing fiction. Set in the world of Canadian racing, the story is that of an intense young woman, a troubled young man, and the quirky but talented filly they both love. This is the first book written by an accomplished equine artist and former backside worker who knows her subject well and tells it with a master's hand." - Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award for excellence in Thoroughbred racing literature, finalist 2020. "Good Things Come...delivers sure-footed racing realities, a deliciously slow-burn relationship, and a jock for the ages-all in vivid, evocative prose that belies the book's debut status." - Diana Hurlburt, Readers Up "I’m so happy to have found an author whose knowledge of the world of horse racing is equaled by her ability to craft a really engaging story. What a gift!!" "Characters are unlike any others I’ve read about in equestrian fiction before." "This series is not just good - but GREAT." Seabiscuit meets Heartland… If you love accurate, well-written horse racing fiction, with equine and human characters you'll come to think of as friends and family, you’ve found your next favorite series! Set in the world of Canadian horse racing, travel from Canada's foremost track, Woodbine, to America's top racing venues: Belmont, Saratoga, Keeneland, Gulfstream and Santa Anita. Book 1: Good Things Come — 2020 Dr Tony Ryan Award Finalist If Liv Lachance wasn’t such a control freak, it wouldn’t have rubbed her the wrong way when the farm’s new exercise rider stepped in to resuscitate newborn Chique, the first foal out of her father’s favourite mare. Nate Miller’s equal parts good-looking and good with horses, and the kind of distraction she can’t afford as a woman trying to make it in a man’s world. What she doesn’t expect is for Nate to become key to her plan to get Chique to Canada’s most prestigious race: the Queen’s Plate. Book 2: All The Little Things While Liv prepares Chique for the second jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown and is trying to navigate her growing feelings for Nate, her best friend, Faye Taylor is trying to get over her broken heart while helping keep the farm she and her brother inherited afloat. Taking over a local café is a chance to supplement her income and new-guy Will’s baking skills might come in handy. She’s not looking to get attached…but all the little things are starting to add up. Book 3: All Good Things The Canadian Triple Crown is on the line, and Chique’s back to her old tricks, leaving Liv and Nate scratching their heads in frustration. Figuring her out earns Nate the chance to ride in California for the winter and Liv thinks she’s doing the right thing by encouraging him to go — without her. It takes the winter apart for them to appreciate what they have, but the love they share — for the horses, and the sport — might be what ultimately drives them apart. Book 4: This Good Thin If the sum total of Liv Lachance's self-worth is the collection of all the things she's done, she's coming up short. She decides it's time to throw herself back into her career as a jockey, even if her impending marriage to fellow rider Nate Miller incites conflict of interest rumblings. But life has other ideas for Liv when a death in the family and illness in the Triple Stripe ranks turn everything upside-down, and she's finally faced with learning that her greatest accomplishments are about so much more than winning races. Book 5: Merry Little Things A parallel, holiday-themed story to This Good Thing, (Good Things Come Book 4). If Emilie Lachance keeps herself busy enough, she'll never have to admit she's afraid of her own company. She has the family farm to oversee, hours to fulfil for an internship, horses to school and a friend with a busy café to help. But when she takes on one too many things she's totally overwhelmed — until friends come to the rescue, and she learns she's not as alone as she thinks she is.
