The Joy of Cruising is about passion. Award-winning author Paul C. Thornton profiles travelers from all over the world with a passion for cruising and who act on that passion in creative and fascinating ways. From a Grammy award winner, Poker Hall of Famer, winner of the TV series Last Comic Standing, to "ordinary" cruisers doing extraordinary things, The Joy of Cruising will fascinate anyone who has ever cruised, aspires to take a cruise, or just loves travel. The Joy of Cruising is an anthology that takes a look at the magic of cruising from the vantage point of travelers passionate about travel―a compendium of anecdotes, stories, and profiles of cruisers who have some unique or interesting perspective. It is not cruise-line specific, nor an industry overview, cruising guide/how-to, exposé or behind the scenes. The Joy of Cruising is a positive examination of why cruisers do what they do in the pursuit of their passion.

Lifting the Veil: Raising Consciousness- AMAZON
Lifting the Veil, Raising Consciousness poses questions that you may not ever have considered asking yourself, such as ‘Who am I?’ and ‘Why am I here?’. For some, these questions never get asked and so life is perceived from the physical and material aspects only.
Do you believe that your mind is in your head and its output is generated from your brain? Or do you have the wider perspective that ‘mind’ is a non-local consciousness that interacts with other minds on an invisible and energetic level?
This book endeavours to open you up to the possibility that we are all connected through an invisible field and that we are individual sparks of one consciousness known by many names but ultimately recognised as a higher or supreme power.
Most of us go through life disconnected from this source because we lack the understanding or belief that we are all children of the one source and worthy to be so. The premise of this book is that none of us are sinners but rather we are here to experience life in all its facets and for the one source to know itself through us.
Each chapter offers a higher perspective than our ordinary mind can, for the everyday mind is filled with constant chatter from the ego which is not our true self. However, we believe wholeheartedly that it is telling us the truth and that it reflects who we are.
If this book can stimulate you to ask the right questions and open your mind to greater possibilities, then it has served its purpose and fulfilled its mission.

We only hate our lives because of what we cannot control.

Without character anything can destroy you. Be compassionate because everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Learn to lead your own life, control what you must and manage what you cannot control. Life is not a race.
Focus on discovering what you were born to do and do it well. Focus on your gifts, ideas, dreams and goals and not on what others are doing. Do not work for reward but fulfilment otherwise your road to success will be short rather than satisfactory. If you do not have a plan to dominate in anything that you’re going to do, don’t get into it. Luck is a poor man’s deception and self-belief is a rich man’s salvation. A wise man fights to win, but he is twice a fool who has no plan for possible defeat!

Since the dawn of time, societies across the globe inexplicably have told stories of mythical creatures such as dragons, aliens, vampires, and more. It would seem human beings are hardwired to react a given way to certain character types.
Psychologist, Carl Jung, called these primordial icons "archetypes." It was his belief we inherit our reaction to archetypes much as we do with certain basic instincts. He also believed these archetypes carried a given metaphorical meaning or, better stated, an allegory.
Over the years, writers have used this knowledge of character archetypes, and their corresponding allegories, to create a literary, and even cinematic, shorthand to create relatable stories.
A Quick Guide to Archetypes & Allegory helps writers to better understand and capitalize on this knowledge. With this quick, handy reference guide you can make your stories more relatable and appealing to your targeted audience. This Quick Guide will help show you how to get from good to exceptional!
