The Nine Eyes of Light is an exploration into multidimensional being. This is the light-body guidebook for the spiritual traveler. The Nine Eyes, also known as Ascension Keys, are the nine levels of consciousness that served as the foundation for Egypt’s awakened civilization. Deeply relevant for navigating our tumultuous times today, these multidimensional perspectives, or lightbodies, reveal how to further understand and develop our consciousness. In practice, many of us are using some of these bodies already, but not all of them, because we have lost sight of our higher potential. These other bodies, says Prakasha, allow us to sense, navigate, and unify all parts of our human and divine selves. The book shows readers how to experience the universal bodies of light; how to access hidden wisdom about Anubis, a pre-Christ figure and original Sphinx; and how to open and purify the heart through the 42 Laws of Harmony, or Ma’at. Chapters include teachings on the science of vibration, sound, and perception; willpower, bliss, and the fuel for love; god consciousness; the shadow as a gateway to source, and much more. The Nine Eyes unite the mind, body, and spirit in loving wisdom and power.
To my mind, the superoxide radical discovered by Linus Pauling more than 50 years ago is about to become a major issue in Ameri can medicine. Uncannily, Pauling's early focus on vitamin C has pointed the way to the whole catalogue of free-radical scavengers, which we in medicine will be using in the coming decade. In ophthalmology, the basic scientists have been talking about the role of free-radical induction by light for some time. They have accumulated an increasing amount of evidence supporting the idea that prolonged light exposure contributes to cataract development and retinal degeneration. Through Clinical Light Damage to the Eye, we hope to bring this message to the practicing ophthalmolo gist. Because Dr. Pauling's work bears so strongly on the key issue of free-radical damage, and because of my own great respect for him as a scientist and a man of rare courage, I invited Dr. Pauling to write the foreword to Clinical Light Damage to the Eye, which follows.

In this 10th Anniversary Edition of her popular text, Sonia Nieto reviews where we have been and where we should be going in our pursuit of creating multicultural learning communities in our schools. With a new Introductory Chapter and a new Epilogue, Nieto addresses some of the changes we have experienced during the past decade that help explain the current sociopolitical environment—our increasing diversity, the altering conditions in schools and in society, the influence of poverty on learning, and the impact of NCLB on classrooms and schools.

About 25 million Americans are 65 and older. That figure will double during the next 25 years. Over the next 15 years, the baby boom generation will swell the ranks of middle-aged workers. But the numbers tell only half the story. The gradual decline in visual functioning that usually accompanies aging often goes undetected or is deemed untreatable. Older people may have difficulty seeing at night, reading small print, distinguishing similar colors, or coping with glare from a desktop or video display terminal. This report is the summary of a Conference held to identify and describe major research findings related to changing visual capacities and the employment of older workers, to recommend steps that could be taken by businesses to encourage the continued productive employment of older workers, and to identify research topics that have yet to be explored that might bear on this subject.
A trusted textbook for undergraduate students for more than 100 years, which also caters to the basic needs of postgraduate students and practitioners.

A bold book, built of close readings, striking in its range and depth, The Signifying Eye shows Faulkner's art take shape in sweeping arcs of social, labor, and aesthetic history. Beginning with long-unpublished works (his childhood sketches and his hand-drawn and handillustrated play The Marionettes) and early novels (Mosquitoes and Sartoris), working through many major works (The Sound and the Fury, As I Lay Dying, Sanctuary, Light in August, and Absalom, Absalom!), and including more popular fictions (The Wild Palms and The Unvanquished) and late novels (notably Intruder in the Dust and The Town), The Signifying Eye reveals Faulkner's visual obsessions with artistic creation as his work is read next to Wharton, Cather, Toomer, and—in a tour de force intervention—Willem de Kooning. After coloring in southern literature as a "reverse slave narrative," Waid's Eye locates Faulkner's fiction as the "feminist hinge" in a crucial parable of art that seeks abstraction through the burial of the race-defined mother. Race is seen through gender and sexuality while social fall is exposed (in Waid's phrase) as a "coloring of class." Locating "visual language" that constitutes a "pictorial vocabulary," The Signifying Eye delights in literacy as the oral meets the written and the abstract opens as a site to see narrative. Steeped in history, this book locates a heightened reality that goes beyond representation to bring Faulkner's novels, stories, and drawings into visible form through Whistler, Beardsley, Gorky, and de Kooning. Visionary and revisionist, Waid has painted the proverbial big picture, changing the fundamental way that both the making of modernism and the avant-garde will be seen. A Friends Fund publication

Marty Glass lives with his wife Carol beyond the power and water lines in Humboldt County, California, relying on his 1965 pick-up truck "Old Brown" to take him the final two miles up a dirt road to his owner-built home. He has worked as a college English instructor, wharehouseman, and janitor. A devoted father of five children, loving husband and neighbor, he now teaches sixth grade in a rural elementary school, and plays jazz piano and cards. For the past thirty years, he has seriously practiced the religion of India, spending the long necessary hours meditating in "Marty's Cell," an old chicken coop reborn as an austere shrine. His spiritual practice is his real life. Marty's acclaimed book Yuga: An Anatomy of our Fate, was published by Sophia Perennis in 2001. He now gives us perhaps his most beautiful and thoughtful gift, reminding us that the world is woven of the infinite Love and Joy that is God, and showing us how, inspired by the Hindu tradition, that Love and Joy can be directly experienced as the heart of the universe and the heart of our hearts. We have it from Frithjof Schuon (The Transcendent Unity of Religions) and many others that the Vedanta appears among explicit doctrines as one of the most direct formulations possible of what makes the very essence of our spiritual reality. The work in hand can be read as a book-length unpacking of that accurate description. Reliable from beginning to end, it is distinctive among the innumerable renditions of the Vedanta in two ways. First, because its author is an accomplished wordsmith, he makes the Vedanta's profundities-which delve as deep as those of any philosophical theology-read like an open book; and second, because he has worked for thirty years to shape his life by those profundities, his vivid accounts of what he experienced along the way make his words jump off the page into the reader's heart. The book is inspiring. Huston Smith, author of Why Religion Matters, The World's Religions, etc.
Through The Eyes Of The Heart was inspired by a dream and a message from my guardian angel Maria. It was the year 2009 when images of the Sacred Heart began to appear to me in many different places and at this time I began to have direct communication with our beloved Maria. During visits to a local church Maria would make her presence known to me and allow me to photograph her. Maria has asked me to share my images with the world; to use these images to teach others that they need to see through the eyes of the heart. We usually want proof that something exists as our minds have been conditioned to not see what lies before us and I hope the messages and images I have to share will do just that. From my heart to yours I hope to take you on a journey of what lies beyond so that you may get out of your head and into your heart and see that there is much more to our existence than what lies before us.
"Drawing on his intimate knowledge of the mystical tradition, Easwaran gives exhilarating glimpses of what love means to Christian mystics - Augustine, Teresa of Avila, Catherine of Genoa, and others."
