From the intro:"Having heard while in Slavery that "God made of one blood all nations of men," and also that the American Declaration of Independence says, that "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness;" we could not understand by what right we were held as "chattels." Therefore, we felt perfectly justified in undertaking the dangerous and exciting task of "running a thousand miles" in order to obtain those rights which are so vividly set forth in the Declaration.I beg those who would know the particulars of our journey, to peruse these pages.This book is not intended as a full history of the life of my wife, nor of myself; but merely as an account of our escape; together with other matter which I hope may be the means of creating in some minds a deeper abhorrence of the sinful and abominable practice of enslaving and brutifying our fellow-creatures."
This book explores the four phases in the holistic process of freeing yourself from anxiety:
Understanding the nature of anxiety. Shifting the body, heart, mind, and soul. Reclaiming your power. Developing a new sense of self.
This book is based on author Harry Kroner's work with hundreds of clients suffering from anxiety, fear, and phobia. Explaining his unique and effective approach to healing anxiety from its core. Treating the person in a more comprehensive way, addressing the body, mind, heart, and soul. It is time to stop treating just the symptoms and heal from the inside out.
Gaining clarity of what is the core cause or triggers. Being honest and accepting of yourself. Releasing the old, limiting beliefs. Learning how to really relax-training yourself to go deeper. Releasing emotional charge from past events; ending negative self-talk from the mind, limiting beliefs and negative patterns of thinking. Opening yourself to higher wisdom, soul healing, and your place in the universe. Learning those things that will help you regain mastery over life. Developing a new sense of self that is authentic and free of anxiety. Growing into a fully integrated and independent version of yourself. Striding safely and confidently in the world."
How much does what we think depend on what we want? Descartes' much-discussed position has often been interpreted to mean that we hold an opinion as the result of a decision. In Scepticism, Freedom and Autonomy, Araujo argues against this interpretation, asserting that we retain control over our opinions only through selective attention. Even for this limited control, however, Cartesian Scepticism implies the possibility of self-delusion, symbolized in the writings of Descartes by the figure of the evil god. Hence, the existence of an evil god would not only cast doubt on our claims to knowledge but also jeopardize our freedom. In this new interpretation, the Cartesian Scepticism, which is usually ascribed only epistemic significance, proves relevant for a fundamental moral question, that of human autonomy in general.
