Your Way to Innocence is a guide for developing an innocent and carefree attitude in everyday life. In simple terms it could be said that innocence results from awakening our inner child and using the energy of the inner child as a trigger for self-transformation. This systematic guide to the how-to for creating innocence is not teaching anything, but in the contrary suggests unlearning much of learned knowledge, and dissolving conditioned habits and behavior patterns that have to be cleared before true innocence can unfold. The author contends that the meaning of innocence is misconstrued and misunderstood in our culture, especially when it’s applied to children, hence the need to develop truthful language for making the necessary divide between sentimentality and authenticity.There is no need to be innocent - it’s a choice but once people see the power of innocence, they may want to give it a try! Innocence is also a safety device, for nothing bad will ever happen to the truly innocent - which means etymologically, ´´non-harming´´, person. Innocence is the true power. It makes for excellent relationships with all beings; it makes for a modest, humble attitude, and is a base condition for a long life and good health till old age. 1. Language: English.

Written by a wrongfully convicted man who spent 16 years in solitary confinement and 12 years on death row, a powerful memoir about fighting for - and winning - exoneration. In the summer of 1992, a grandmother, a teenage girl, and four children under the age of 10 were beaten and stabbed to death in Somerville, Texas. The perpetrator set the house on fire to cover his tracks, deepening the heinousness of the crime and rocking the tiny community to its core. Authorities were eager to make an arrest. Five days later, Anthony Graves was in custody. Graves, then 26 years old and without an attorney, was certain that his innocence was obvious. He did not know the victims, he had no knowledge about the crime, and he had an airtight alibi with witnesses. There was also no physical evidence linking him to the scene. Yet Graves was indicted, convicted of capital murder, sentenced to death, and, over the course of 12 years on death row, given two execution dates. He was not freed for 18 years, two months, four days. Through years of suffering the whims of rogue prosecutors, vote-hungry district attorneys, and Texas State Rangers who played by their own rules, Graves was frequently exposed to the dire realities of being poor and black in the criminal justice system. He witnessed fellow inmates who became his friends and confidants be taken away, one by one, to their deaths. And he missed out on seeing his three young sons mature into men. Graves´s only solace was his infinite hope that the state would not execute him for a crime he did not commit. To maintain his dignity and sanity, Graves made sure as many people as possible knew about his case. He wrote letters to whomever he thought would listen. Pen pals in countries all over the world became allies, and he attracted the attention of a savvy legal team that overcame setback after setback, chiseling away at the state´s faulty case against him. Everyone´s efforts eventually worked. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Leon Nixon. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/005464/bk_rand_005464_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
A novel of intense perception and formidable power from one of Australia´s most celebrated authors. Every city, town and village has its memorial to war. Nowhere are these more eloquent than in Australia, generations of whose young men have enlisted to fight other people´s battles - from Gallipoli and the Somme to Malaya and Vietnam. In The Great World, his finest novel yet, David Malouf gives a voice to that experience. But The Great World is more than a novel of war. Ranging over 70 years of Australian life, from Sydney´s teeming King´s Cross to the tranquil backwaters of the Hawkesbury River, it is a remarkable novel of self-knowledge and lost innocence, of survival and witness. 1.
