In this poignant, moving book, Muhammad Ali shares the beliefs he has come to live by and which he has passed on to his children. Some of the wisdom is his own; some comes from the teachings of true Islam, from his spiritual studies, and from people he has met in the course of his extraordinary life. Here, as he recalls his early days as a young warrior in Louisville, Kentucky, and his meteoric rise to fame as Heavyweight Champion of the World, a title he won three times, he tells of the many battles he won and lost, both inside and outside the ring and his conversion to Islam in the 1960s. Now, working tirelessly as a worldwide ambassador for peace, he talks of the damage caused when religion is used to tear people apart, the essential need for unity in this troubled world, and how his faith sustains him on this, the most important journey of his life - the journey to forgiveness and peace. Together with his daughter Hana, in this timely spiritual memoir Ali draws upon his rich reserve of notes, tapes and journals, and writes with compassion, warmth and, of course, humour on how we can liberate mind, body and spirit when we pursue and embrace the one essential truth - love.

Former boxing legend Muhammad Ali, one of the best-known and best-loved celebrities and an international good-will ambassador, offers inspiration and hope as he describes the spiritual philosophy that sustains him. "During my boxing career, you did not see the real Muhammad Ali. You just saw a little boxing. You saw only a part of me. After I retired from boxing my true work began. I have embarked on a journey of love." So Muhammad Ali begins this spiritual memoir, his description of the values that have shaped and sustained him and that continue to guide his life. In The Soul of a Butterfly the great champion takes readers on a spiritual journey through the seasons of life, from childhood to the present, and shares the beliefs that have served him well. After fighting some of the fiercest bouts in boxing history against Joe Frazier and George Foreman, today Muhammad Ali faces his most powerful foe—outside the boxing ring. Like many people, he battles an illness that limits his physical abilities, but as he says, "I have gained more than I have lost....I have never had a more powerful voice than I have now." Ali reflects on his faith in God and the strength it gave him during his greatest challenge, when he lost the prime years of his boxing career because he would not compromise his beliefs. He describes how his study of true Islam has helped him accept the changes in his life and has brought him to a greater awareness of life's true purpose. As a United Nations "Messenger of Peace," he has traveled widely, and he describes his 2002 mission to Afghanistan to heighten public awareness of that country's desperate situation, as well as his more recent meeting with the Dalai Lama. Ali's reflections on topics ranging from moral courage to belief in God to respect for those who differ from us will inspire and enlighten all who read them. Written with the assistance of his daughter Hana, The Soul of a Butterfly is a compassionate and heartfelt book that will provide comfort for our troubled times.

The Book of Psalms; written by David and other Psalmist expresses and releases their heart while giving God praises. The Author of this book has chosen to share her life through written psalms of her own. She has released from her very soul words of healing, words of enlightenment, words of truth and hope; while giving God Praise. As you read these metamorphic words of poetry you may find a shadow of your own soul. Perhaps you have found yourself faced with situations in life that has caused you to doubt the very hand of God. From her dark experiences The Soul of the Black Butterfly has bought a light of understanding to many of life's situations we face today. Whoever said the life of a Believer was going to be an easy journey? Contrary to what many hope for, this book portrays the life of a Christian is not always so easy; choices and decisions are not always clear, yet must be made. In John 16:33 Jesus makes a promising opposing statement. “...In the world you shall have tribulations...” This passage conflicts with what we care to hear; after all, before we came to Christ, most of us had been beaten down by life's mishaps already. This writer has been no exception to the many test and trials of life. In this book the Author boldly reveals how she has stood the promised persecutions and the many afflictions (Ps 34:19, 2Tim 3:12) of life. In spite of the opposing statement of Christ, the completion of John 16:33 GIVES US HOPE for Victory from life's promised trials and tribulations... and so it is with these written psalms. This freed butterfly has lived her poems and now shares her Glorious Praises and Lessons Learned with you in poetic psalms and mini-stories.

" .. .1 have no love for life as such; for me it begins to have significance, i.e., to acquire meaning and weight, only when it is transformed, i.e., in art. If I were taken beyond the sea into paradise-and forbidden to write, I would refuse the sea and paradise. I don't need life as a thing in itself." This, written by Tsvetayeva in a letter to her Czech friend, Teskova, in 1925, could stand as an inscription to her life. Marina Tsvetayeva was born in Moscow on September 26, 1892. Her fathel~ a well-known art historian and philolo gist, founded the Moscow Museum of the Fine Arts, now known as the Pushkin Museum; her mother, a pianist, died young, in 1906. Marina began writing poetry at the age of six. Her first book, Evening Album, contained poems she had writ ten before she turned seventeen, and enjoyed reviews by the poet, painter, and mentor of young writers, Max Voloshin, the poet Gumilyov, and the Symbolist critic and poet, Valerii Bryusov. Voloshin and Gumilyov welcomed the seventeen year-old poet as their equal; Bryusov was more critical of her, though he too, in his own belligerent way, acknowledged her talent.

Is a butterfly just a butterfly, or could it be the soul of a loved one? In My Mommy Is a Butterfly, eight-year-old Shelly thinks she knows the answer to that question when the power of love, the belief in angels, and a very special butterfly give her a reason to have hope. This heartwarming story of everlasting love teaches children that our feelings of love survive the death of the physical body and keep us connected forever. This unique approach to comforting a grieving child encourages the child to focus on the power of love and to have faith and trust in a continuing bond with their loved one. Children who are grieving commonly see signs from spirits because their hearts and minds are naturally open. These signs are known as after-death communications, or ADCs, and children are among the estimated 60-120 million Americans who experience them. Signs may include dreams, visions, auditory messages, or simply sensations of a presence. The author hopes that this book will empower children and inspire them to see death not only as an ending, but also as a new beginning of a different type of relationship - one that shows them that love doesnt die. ... expertly and gently explains how love endures ... -David J. Roberts, LMSW and bereavement specialist

True stories of transitioning from medical school classrooms to the realities of the hospital: “Moving, eloquent, and often unforgettable” (Atul Gawande, MD). After years of practice, doctors can sometimes seem aloof, uncaring, and hurried. What goes on in their minds? Were they always like that, or has their work changed them? And how do some physicians manage to retain their warmth and humanity over the course of a long career? This “thoughtful and illuminating” book takes us into the day-to-day lives of third-year medical students at an Ivy League school—just starting out in their profession and dealing with patients face-to-face for the first time (Publishers Weekly). In their own words, more than forty of them reveal what it’s really like to enter this field, having their principles of scientific rigor and idealism tested as they cope with real people and real crises in real time. This doctor’s-eye-view of the dramas—and occasional comedies—of the world of health care offers fascinating insights about clinical medicine and a behind-the-scenes look at a job that can range from repetitive routines to life-and-death decisions at any given moment. These stories “offer a unique vantage on illness, life, and struggle—capturing in vivid glimpses that crucial moment in a doctor’s life when one transitions from outsider to insider” (Atul Gawande, MD, New York Times–bestselling author of Being Mortal). “Thoughtful and illuminating.” —Publishers Weekly
