TABLE OF CONTENTS:
Part I - Reclaiming Your Inner Territory
Chapter 1: Surrendering Control
At the root of emotional addictions is our belief structure, which continually undermines us by telling us two things:
(1) that we will be alone or abandoned, and
(2) that we lose control of reality.

Chapter 2: Accepting the Enemy Within
We have go into the dark part of us and love it. For that is the key into the kingdom-to love it. And we have to stand up acknowledge that that is part of us.

Chapter 3: Waking Yourself Up
When we observe, we reach a state of contentment, which allows the Soul energy to activate. When it activates, we attune to it. Through our intuition we take hold of it and we start riding back on this Soul energy into the center. We actually get pas time.
Secret of the Spiritual Warrior: Loving-The Highest Intention
Chapter 4: Embracing the Petty Tyrant
We should all have a petty tyrant in our life, someone who just bugs us with impunity. But if you can putt your self-importance, your righteousness, and your ego on hold, and listen for a moment, your petty tyrants will point out you can change and make something work better and better.

Part II - Becoming a Spiritual Warrior
Chapter 5: Coming into Alignment
Inside us, who we are as an eternal being meets the person who is here temporarily. This is where the Spirit, the emanation from God, meets us. It is called our point of coveragence or, variously, a point of concentration or attention.
Chapter 6: Manifesting Your Spirit
By defining "manifestation" as "appearing physically" we are only taking into account the physical form. Successful manifestation is only complete if it results in a change of consciousness. The change in consciousness, in turn, is the realization that what you sought in a physical form is the very essence of what is inside you. "Having" does not mean possessing in a physical form. It means no longer experiencing the need.
Chapter 7: Moving from the Unknown to the Unknowable
The mind has to stop at the mental level; the emotions have to stop at the plane of the emotional level; the imagination stops at the imagination level. This may seem obvious, but it is amazing how many people think they can use their emotions to solve mental problems and that they can use their mind to find God.

Chapter 8: Bridging the Left and Right Sides of Consciousness
The purpose of this discuss is not to talk about the separation between left and right sides, but to get you to the oneness of the side you are in. As soon as you do that, you will straddle the line automatically because you will see the rightness and its and its value and the leftness and its value. The Soul is both.

Chapter 9: Stalking the Spirit
In the worlds of spirit there is no time. However, in this world, time is precious commodity. This physical world is a springboard from you into the higher consciousness. Our bodies, minds, emotions, unconscious, and Soul come together into one place giving us opportunity in the universe for growth and uplift.
Chapter 10: Observing Life on Earth: Tips for Travelers
The only thing you can do on the planet is the best you can. The people on the Earth do it the best they can, and then they say it was not the best they could. And then they worry about that, because they could have done better. And if they are given another chance they will do it the same way the second time too. And a third, and a fourth, and fifth, and sixth.What you mind say to them is, "If you could have done better, you would have done better, and you did the best you could.’
