Author: by Ryuu Shinohara
Why Celebrities Swear by These 15 Powerful Techniques As The Secret to Anything You Want in LifeDo you easily complain or start nagging whenever something isn’t going your way? Do you give fault and make others responsible for your misery? Are you annoyed looking around seeing others having exactly what you want in life?
Believe it or not, you are the driver of your own life and no one else can steal your seat… If you don’t let them. What if there were straight-forward, easy principles to get everything you want in life? Maybe you already manifest regularly or you’ve heard of it, but never tried it.
Manifesting means using the power of your thoughts, feelings or beliefs to bring something into your physical reality. At first, it sounds abstract, but science has proven, everything is made of energy: objects, animals, thoughts, and humans. There are laws that control how this energy flows and where it goes just as there are laws of gravity and laws of growth.
The more you know about these laws the easier it is to navigate the energy you need in the right direction. No wonder that even stars like Will Smith, Jim Carrey, Oprah Winfrey, and Lady Gaga swear by manifestation as the secret to their success.

Where was it stored in the past, and where is it now? What are its structure and contents? When was the Book of Dzyan written? Why is it now of such great significance, even in your own life?

6. The Kojiki: An Account of Ancient Matters (Translations from the Asian Classics)
Author: by no Yasumaro Ō
Columbia University Press
Japan’s oldest surviving narrative, the eighth-century Kojiki, chronicles the mythical origins of its islands and their ruling dynasty through a diverse array of genealogies, tales, and songs that have helped to shape the modern nation’s views of its ancient past.
Gustav Heldt’s engaging new translation of this revered classic aims to make the Kojiki accessible to contemporary readers while staying true to the distinctively dramatic and evocative appeal of the original’s language. It conveys the rhythms that structure the Kojiki’s animated style of storytelling and translates the names of its many people and places to clarify their significance within the narrative.
An introduction, glossaries, maps, and bibliographies offer a wealth of additional information about Japan’s earliest extant record of its history, literature, and religion.
7. Imperial Cults and the Apocalypse of John: Reading Revelation in the Ruins
Author: by Steven J. Friesen
Oxford University Press
September 28, 2001
After more than a century of debate about the significance of imperial cults for the interpretation of Revelation, this is the first study to examine both the archaeological evidence and the Biblical text in depth. Friesen argues that a detailed analysis of imperial cults as they were practiced in the first century CE in the region where John was active allows us to understand John’s criticism of his society’s dominant values.
He demonstrates the importance of imperial cults for society at the time when Revelation was written, and shows the ways in which John refuted imperial cosmology through his use of vision, myth, and eschatological expectation.
8. MAKING DMT SIMPLIFIED: The Complete step by step Guide to making DMT spirit Molecule even as a beginner
Author: by Gideon Jackson
MAKING DMT SIMPLIFIEDThe Complete step by step Guide to making DMT spirit Molecule even as a beginnerDMT is known as The Spirit Molecule’ and for good reason. DMT is one of the most powerful psychedelics on the planet, naturally occurring in many species of plants, and is thought to be released in tiny amounts in mammal brains.
Although the issue is controversial, it’s also possible that the release of natural DMT is a factor in out-of-body experiences or spiritual states. DMT is a molecule that mimics the neurotransmitter serotonin, much like the other classic psychedelics LSD and psilocybin.
DMT’s psychological effects are mostly due to its binding to the 5-HT2A receptor, which is found mostly in areas of the brain associated with high-level cognition: self-awareness, emotions and introspection. When smoked or injected intravenously, DMT causes a very rapid, very intense psychedelic experience which lasts a few minutes.
Users report the feeling of being ripped from their bodies, and thrown through space at incredible speeds. DMT produces intense visual and auditory hallucinations of otherworldly landscapes, hidden dimensions and god-like beings. It often produces deep introspection in its users, allowing the revisitation of past memories and providing a fresh perspective on life.
9. The Kojiki: Japanese Records of Ancient Matters (Forgotten Books)
Author: by Basil Hall Chamberlain
The Kojiki is one of the two primary sources for Shinto, the Japanese national religion. It starts in the realm of myth, with the creation of Japan from foam. Innumerable gods and goddesses are described. The narrative moves from mythology to historical legends, and culminates in a chronology of the early Imperial line.
The book is densely footnoted, almost to the point where the text is buried in apparatus. However, even this cannot shroud the wonderful story-telling. There are supernatural episodes, and tales of murder, passion and betrayal, all interspersed with extemporaneous poetry, reminiscent of Icelandic sagas.
(Quote from sacred-texts. Com)About the AuthorBasil Hall Chamberlain (1850 – 1935)Basil Hall Chamberlain (18 October 1850 – 15 February 1935), was a professor of Tokyo Imperial University and one of the foremost British Japanologists active in Japan during the late 19th century.(Others included E.M.Satow and W.G.Aston.
He also wrote some of the earliest translations of haiku into English. He is perhaps best remembered for his informal and popular one-volume encyclopedia Things Japanese, which first appeared in 1890 and which he revised several times thereafter. His interests were diverse, and his works included a volume of poetry in French.
10. An Introduction to Shinto
Author: by David Chart
Mimusubi (April 17, 2020)
April 17, 2020
Shinto is the native religious tradition of Japan. This introduction focuses on its ceremonies, called matsuri, and sacred spaces, known as jinja, and also discusses three individual jinja in some detail: Jing at Ise, arguably the most sacred site in Shinto, Yasukuni Jinja in Tokyo, clearly the most controversial, and Shirahata Hachiman Daijin, a typical jinja in Kawasaki.
Other chapters cover Shinto theology, Shinto’s history and place in contemporary Japanese society, and a discussion of the famous myth of Amaterasu mikami and the cave of heaven. David Chart is a naturalised citizen of Japan, and has lived there, studying Shinto, for over fifteen years.
He currently works for the largest Shinto organisation in Japan (Jinja Honch), as a consultant on their outreach to non-Japanese. (Note that this book is an independent project, however, and its contents are not endorsed by Jinja Honch or any of the other Shinto organisations mentioned in the text.
11. Shinto: A History
Author: by Helen Hardacre
Oxford University Press
Distinguished scholar of Japanese religions and culture Helen Hardacre offers the first comprehensive history of Shinto, the ancient and vibrant tradition whose colorful rituals are still practiced today. Under the ideal of Shinto, a divinely descended emperor governs through rituals offeredto deities called Kami.
These rituals are practiced in innumerable shrines across the realm, so that local rites mirror the monarch’s ceremonies. Through this theatre of state, it is thought, the human, natural, and supernatural worlds will align in harmony and prosper. Often called “the indigenous religion of Japan,” Shinto’s institutions, rituals, and symbols are omnipresent throughout the island nation.
But, perhaps surprisingly, both its religiosity and its Japanese origins have been questioned. Hardacre investigates the claims about Shinto as the embodiment ofindigenous tradition, and about its rightful place in the public realm. Shinto has often been represented in the West as the engine that drove Japanese military aggression.

14. The Nihongi: Part I, II, III & IV (Forgotten Books)
Author: by Unknown Hall Author
The Nihon Shoki, sometimes translated as The Chronicles of Japan, is the second oldest book of classical Japanese history. It is more elaborate and detailed than the Kojiki, the oldest, and has proven to be an important tool for historians and archaeologists as it includes the most complete extant historical record of ancient Japan.
The Nihon Shoki was finished in 720 under the editorial supervision of Prince Toneri and with the assistance of Ono Yasumaro. The book is also called The Nihongi. Like the Kojiki, the Nihon Shoki begins with a series of myths, but continues its account through to events of the 8th century.
It is believed to record accurately the latter reigns of Emperor Tenji, Emperor Temmu, and Empress Jito. The Nihon shoki focuses on the merits of the virtuous rulers as well as the errors of the bad rulers. It describes episodes from mythological eras and diplomatic contacts with other countries.
The Nihon Shoki was written in classical Chinese, as was common for official documents at that time. The Kojiki, on the other hand, is written in a combination of Chinese and phonetic transcription of Japanese (primarily for names and songs).
