“The Integrity Advantage: Step Into Your Truth, Love Your Life and Claim Your Magnificence,” by Kelley Kosow
Does any of this sound familiar to you? You vowed to speak up at work, and then sat silent in the meeting yet again. You told yourself “this time the diet is going to stick,” only to watch the scale inching up. You felt that something just wasn’t right about someone that—until you learned the hard way that your instincts were right. Author and CEO of the Ford Institute, Kelley Kosow explains we make promises to ourselves every day, and then we break them. But it doesn’t have to be that way. “The Integrity Advantage” is a step-by-step guide for facing the fear, shame, and false beliefs that cause us to lose our way.
Through life-changing insights, true stories and proven strategies, Kosow shares how to live on your own terms—according to you—from the inside out, including how to connect with your inner truth; level-up your self-love and self-trust to get where you want to go; break free of the “gravitational pull” of your past; stop living from your “to-do” list and start living from your “bucket” list” and more.

“The Lifetimes When Jesus and Buddha Knew Each Other: A History of Mighty Companions,” by Gary Renard
Two and a half decades ago, Ascended Master Teachers Arten and Pursah appeared to Gary Renard and held a series of conversations with him that elaborated on the teachings of two spiritual classics, The Gospel of Thomas and A Course in Miracles. Gary immortalized what he learned in the books of his best-selling series of books: “The Disappearance of the Universe,” “Your Immortal Reality,” and “Love Has Forgotten No One.” This fourth book is a companion to the original trilogy, yet written to stand alone, an invitation for new readers into this fascinating work.
This book explores six of the lifetimes in which the incarnations of Jesus and Buddha lived together, beginning in 700 B.C. when they were known as Saka and Hiroji. Arten and Pursah, through the spiritual lessons that Jesus and Buddha learn on their path, clarify the difference between duality and non-duality. When you are able to internalize these lessons, you will be saved countless years in your spiritual development.
