Einführung in die Anwendung der Spiegelmeditation. Excalibur war in der Mythologie der Name für das Schwert, das König Artus von der Herrin vom See erhielt. Es war ein mehr als ebenbürtiger Ersatz für sein Schwert Caliburn, das er vordem, zum Zeichen seiner Königswürde, aus einem Stein ziehen musste. Excalibur umgab ein Zauber. Es verlieh seinem Besitzer übermenschliche Kräfte und seine Scheide machte ihn unverwundbar, solange er sie trug. Auch die Spiegelmeditation wirkt wie jenes Schwert. Sie öffnet die Linie der Zeit, verleiht gleichsam übermenschliche Kräfte, indem sie den Blick ermöglicht in vergangene, bildhafte Eindrücke. Scharf und schneidend, ohne Verklärung, ohne Mitleid ohne ..., gibt der Spiegel die Bilder der ganz persönlichen Vergangenheit preis. Excalibur führt hinein in Vergangenes. Jetzt liegt es am Anwender, TAO, der Person selbst, damit zu arbeiten, die gelieferten Informationen für die persönliche Entwicklung zu nutzen. Das Buch will dabei helfen, den Anwender für die Nutzung der Spiegelmeditation stark zu machen. Es bietet eine brauchbare Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe. Der einzige Weg hinaus ist schließlich der Weg hindurch.

Although 'Britannia ruled the waves' in the 19th century, Jean Lafitte's pyrates and the ruthless Cuban sea rovers took their toll on British commerce in the Gulf of Mexico and among the Leeward Islands in the Carribean Sea. It was the First Lord of the Admiralty who conceived a plan to counteract the pyrate menace. The Royal Navy revamped a captured frigate, assigned one of its most aggressive post captains and battle-tested crews to her. She was commissioned Excalibur, her captain ordered to be as ruthless as the pyrates he sought. Excalibur allows the reader to share a brief period in the life of Post Captain Arthur Allen; to meet his family at Allen Manor; share a few private moments with Arthur and his fiancée, Cassandra; stand beside him on a rolling deck in raging storms and while combating pyrates; and to share his unnerving experiences involving the paranormal on land and sea. Take a brief look at 19th century England, then come on board Excalibur for a voyage of realistic adventure based on factual accounts.

Gefangen auf dieser lebensfeindlichen Welt und außerstande, seinen Leuten mitzuteilen, dass er die Vernichtung ihres Schiffs überlebt hat, muss Calhoun gegen zahlreiche Gegner bestehen.

The Excalibur of Christ is more than a book, more than a diary. It's a guide, a weapon and truth; I say this because everyone knows the story of Excalibur, but what everyone might not know is the truth of a sword. A sword is far more than a piece of metal, in the Bible and other doctrines of the world, a sword is the tongue and mind of man. However, the true mind of man is the incorruptible spirit of him, which was birth by the Most High, the true image we're in, but if you do not have that sword, you will not know although you may be forever hearing. So, now that you know the truth of the sword, this book is written with the Excalibur of Christ, because we not only war with flesh and blood. But we war with principalities of things that are unjustly done which causes the war on flesh and blood. Therefore, to fight that battle you have to be equipped with the right information and weaponry. Thus, you are given the truth of your sword, and if you think I'm not being truthful, look at it for yourself. Take the (s) off sword and all you'll have left if word, which is your thoughts and speech. So, with that being said, take up thy armor and fight a good fight that you may enjoy all that's rightfully yours in this life.
