Spiritual Survival in a Temporal World
This is a book by Les Visible. I like his stype with his teachings here and there on spirituality, usually incorporated into his various writings, like the one I posted here today. The book is available at http://www.amazon.com/Spiritual-Survival-Temporal-World-Visible/dp/0984918019/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1329011970&sr=1-2
There is a nice preview of the book on the Amazon site. It is $25 and thus no shipping there. I really liked it, and it a wonderful EASY read covering a wide variety of topics and he encourages a do it yourself, find yourself mode but makes it important to see why you must interact in this world and how. This would be suitable for anyone to read who is seeking something beyond this material existance. Big print too. Not a long book, 135 pages. Lovely art.
There is NO OTHER general Spiritual Book about seeking the Light but being able to operate here that holds a candle to this one. I really like it. It explains the Light and Dark is a very real way and how you can dance thru it. And Les explains it as the RESULT of his own personal work to gain this, that is his knowledge. And thus this book is for that reason very unique in the spiritual book genre.
Here is a short sample from pages 97/98: You who seek to attain to Spiritual Survival here and beyond must focus on the light within and maintain a positive mindset concerning the love that the ineffable bears you. Those that serve the darkness are Satanists. There is no more appropriate title for them. They serve the material appetites and what is to be gained from the world of matter, ruled by the prince of darkness. Believe in it or not. It does not change the fact that there are two main kingdoms in which we strive and seek our fortune: that of the spirit and that of matter. Both worlds are controlled by the ineffable, but the ineffable hides behind a mask in this world for the purpose of trapping those who are villians and preditors of the manifest realm.
We are bound by our illusions of what is real and true, but freedom is an imperative in the heart of a human being and there is no greater drive of irresistable force. Most of us are heading in the wrong direction. We equate our freedom with a degree of mastery on the material plane. These triumphs are temporary and always end in disappointment because all our triumps are as temporary as the plane on which they occur. It's an old story and the allegories from all the holy books detail these things in their timeless fashion. Freedom is a state of mind, a state of being where we have finally come to understand and comprehend that nothing here is worth having without the clarity of knowing what it is that our real liberty depends on.
These are desparate times, when the fates of individuals and nations hang by a thread. Acts of madness are plotted in back rooms by men and women without conscience. You have to maintain an unshakable and positive mindset about what lies behind the dreadful appearnces of the day and the false impression of power in the hands of those who prey upon the public body. You have to believe in what you cannot see, more certainly than in anything you can see; just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there and just because you can doesn't mean it is.
The rest of the chapter I typed this from, is mind boggling and spell binding, in its truth. I am not typing that up, you must get the book......-C

Les has several blogs each a different link. http://zippittydodah.blogspot.com/ This one gets you there and there are pull down menu's for the others.
