Review: The Invisible Mirror – Knowing Yourself and Your Soul

5 Star, Consciousness & Social IQ
Amazon Page

This is a gem of a book.  It was  given to me as a gift during our stop at Penn Valley CA (Location 24 of 84 on the ARISE USA Tour).

It is both a fast read and a slow read. I found the structure of this book and the graphics to be compelling, useful, and totally authentic.  This book has my total endorsement as being worthy of reading by any conscious human; I am keeping it and will find the time to look at it again as we roll across America with our five wrapped coaches.

The chapter I read most carefully dealt with ALLOWING — with embracing the possibility that there is a cosmic safety net and that one should be more open to all possibilities.

Daniel Estulin cemented his position in my own view as one of the top twelve non-fiction authors in the geo-cultural-economic-political arena with his book TAVISTOCK INSTITUTE – Social Engineering the Masses, my rave review is at the link. I found this book so impressive I included it among my top 25 cosmic mind-altering books in my lecture for TransitionTalks.

Along with Matt Ehret, whom I consider one of the greatest modern strategic thinkers and historians (it helps to be strategic in the present if you actually understand the past – and not the past as lied about by the academy and government and media but the past as it actually happened), Daniel Estulin, with a prior history as a Russian intelligence and counterintelligence officer, lays out the Luciferian Satanic secret dirty reality of the tri-fecta of evil: secret societies, compromised banks and corporations, and compromised states, all coming together to allow the 1% to lie, cheat, and steal from the 99% with impunity.

5 Star Authentic, Inclusive, Truthful

I confess to having trouble with this book — it is more escoteric than I am accustomed to  but in the end is make some vital points that boil down to a solution for complexity that elevates humans, demands inclusion of all points of view as well as respect for the truth, and fully integrates philosophy, science, and evaluation.

Below are two graphics from the conclusion.

Review: Farwell’s Rules of the Nautical Road Ninth Edition by Craig H. Allen Sr. & Craig H. Allen Jr.

5 Star Top Professional Book on the Subject

This is a most extraordinary book intended for professional officers and petty officers, not your average day sailor.  Until I was offered this book as a gift, my personal D Skipper collection consisted of three items:

This book at 542 pages is vastly more detailed, nuanced, complex, and rewarding than my three “cruising skipper” guides as it is intended for professional officers and petty officers with a particular respect for those manning warships and confronting warships in both international waters and inland waterways. It is part of the US Naval Institute Blue & Gold Professional Library that includes such standards as Command at Sea and Fleet Tactics and Naval Operations.

Review: (Publisher) Regenerate: Unlocking Your Body’s Radical Resilience through the New Biology

5 Star, Disease & Health

Radical resilience – not disease – is your body’s destiny

Regenerate means to rejuvenate, revitalize, and renew. These words hold great promise, especially for so many of us who feel something is wrong, most often in our bodies but increasingly in our souls.

I’m writing this book in the hopes that I can help others who are experiencing persistent symptoms or sickness to pause and consider that their bodies are sending a message that something they are consuming, breathing, or thinking is toxic or biologically incompatible with wellness.

Review (Publisher): Corporate Crime and Punishment: The Crisis of Underenforcement

5 Star, Crime (Corporate)

In the early 2000s, federal enforcement efforts sent white collar criminals at Enron and WorldCom to prison. But since the 2008 financial collapse, this famously hasn't happened. Corporations have been permitted to enter into deferred prosecution agreements and avoid criminal convictions, in part due to a mistaken assumption that leniency would encourage cooperation and because enforcement agencies don't have the funding or staff to pursue lengthy prosecutions, says distinguished Columbia Law Professor John C. Coffee. “We are moving from a system of justice for organizational crime that mixed carrots and sticks to one that is all carrots and no sticks,” he says.
