The Six Spaces of the All Good: An Upadesha Tantra of the Great Perfection

The Great Perfection, also known as the Atiyoga or Dzogchen (rDzogs chen), is a tradition of esoteric Buddhism that propounds instantaneous enlightenment and was first brought to Tibet in the Eighth Century of the Common Era. The Indian manuscripts of this tradition have been lost in time. Only the Tibetan translations remain. The original teachings of this tradition are contained in Tantras, which are generally divided into three categories: The Mind Section, the Space Section, and the Upadesha Instruction Section. The Upadesha Instruction section is devoted to the pointing out instructions or practical advice in the understanding and application of the Great Perfection. It is generally described as having seventeen root scriptures. The Tantras here translated is among these seventeen works. The Tantra on the Six Spaces of the All Good takes us to a world where communication is both verbal and telepathic, recording the communications between the All Good One and a gathering of Bodhisattvas. The Tantra is divided into six chapters, one for each of the six classes of living beings: the gods, the asuras, the humans, the animals, the hungry ghosts, and the hells, while the content of the chapters themselves corresponds to six spaces of wisdom or reality. The Tantra demonstrates a pure vision of the realms of existence, showing them to be essentially good. I have included images of the Tibetan manuscript for your convenience and to help preserve this ancient literature.

Sin and Syntax: How to Craft Wicked Good Prose

A fully revised and updated edition with challenges and writing prompts in every chapter

Today’s writers need more spunk than Strunk: whether it’s the Great American e-mail, Madison Avenue advertising, or Grammy Award-winning rap lyrics, memorable writing must jump off the page. Copy veteran Constance Hale is on a mission to make creative communication, both the lyrical and the unlawful, an option for everyone.

With its crisp, witty tone, Sin and Syntax covers grammar’s ground rules while revealing countless unconventional syntax secrets (such as how to use—Gasp!—interjections or when to pepper your prose with slang) that make for sinfully good writing. Discover how to:

*Distinguish between words that are “pearls” and words that are “potatoes”

* Avoid “couch potato thinking” and “commitment phobia” when choosing verbs

* Use literary devices such as onomatopoeia, alliteration, and metaphor (and understand what you’re doing)

Everyone needs to know how to write stylish prose—students, professionals, and seasoned writers alike. Whether you’re writing to sell, shock, or just sing, Sin and Syntax is the guide you need to improve your command of the English language.

15 Things Nobody Tells You About Freelancing: That You Really Need to Know

Are you a freelancer or hoping to become one? Itching to escape the corporate grind and be your own boss? Whether you’re hoping to be a freelance writer, illustrator, designer, or any other kind of freelancer, there are some things you should know. I’ve been a freelancer for four years, and in that amount of time, I’ve learned quite a bit about the industry. There are a lot of things I wish someone had told me when I was starting out, but this job doesn’t really come with a manual.

I asked my freelancing friends what they wish they’d known when they started out, and I took the top 15 to create a bit of a starter guide for you. I hope that you’ll find this useful, whether you’re still in the planning stage or you’ve already taken the plunge into a freelancing life.

Even if you’ve been a freelancer for years, sometimes it’s helpful to remind yourself of the basics.

This ebook is super short, to the point, slightly snarky (caution if you don’t like humorous swearing) and only spends a page covering each tip, but I believe it can be a powerful tool for you as you navigate this crazy, wonderful industry of freelancing.

Value Added: How to Make More Money on Freelancing Websites: From $20 a Month to $5,617 a Week in Just 2 Years

When I first started my freelance business, I made just $20 in my first month.

Now, I make as much as $5,617 in one week, and anyone can use my strategies to increase their income and lock in more clients, even if you have very little experience in your field.

That’s because the secret to freelance success is not about mastery: it’s about good business and marketing skills, which you can easily learn and “steal” from this book.

Here’s a glimpse at what you’ll learn:

–> How to write a killer job proposal that excites customers, makes them eager to hire you, and allows you to charge more money than ever before.
–> Why your limitations and shortcomings are actually useful tools for increasing the number of clients you get this month.
–> The right way to set your prices based on the Value Offered Method (instead of the typical system most people use that destroys their income).
–> The key to designing a freelancer profile that will generate more job invitations than anything you’ve tried before. (The secret is to skip the handshakes.)
–> How to lock in more clients even if you have zero job experience and no portfolio items to show off. Believe it or not, 95% of my clients have never seen my portfolio!.
–> Why charging less money is actually hurting your business and costing you more jobs than you realize.
–> How to phrase your service in a way that transforms it from being an hourly task into a valuable product that the client can almost imagine holding in their hands… and can easily imagine paying for.
–> How I charge more than my competitors, get more invitations, and land more jobs… even though I only have never had “real-world experience” at a company.
–> My strategies for spending less time looking at jobs, less time negotiating with clients, and less time working on projects while making more money.
–> Why a little bit of “fortune telling” is critical to your ability to create loyal, long-time clients.
–> How you can add value to your service with a free download that costs you nothing to give away, giving you even more wiggle room to charge more money.

>>> Most People Will Make a Profit from This Book with Just One New Client. <<<

The vast majority of clients will pay you much more than $50 for a project, so it’s easy to see how quickly you can make your money back on this book.

But more importantly, the long-term benefit to your business will far outweigh the cost.

Using some of the strategies in this book, I have more-than-doubled my rates in less than one month.

Get more clients. Charge more money. Grow your business today.

Talisman for Poets Writers and Actors Pentacle Pendant Hermetic Jewelry

The Talisman for Poets was was inspired by the importance poets were given in Celtic history. In true bardic fashion, poets were the keepers of Celtic history and culture. Traveling from city to city, the poet was most sought after entertainment; the purveyor of all the news and the most eloquent composer and reciter of epic and heroic poems.

Our talisman is updated from a design found in an ancient grimoire of magical symbols. The design consists of Angelic sigils and alchemical symbols around a rendering of a Celtic-stylized, six-pointed star by artist Chris Bennett. These symbols are said to create a powerful magic to help one find the right word at the most opportune moment. Concentrating on the endless knot work of the six start will intensify “natural inspiration” and assist in your writing endeavors.

On the backside of this talisman is the “Seal of Eloquence”, also known as the “Seal of Mercury”,which is lifted from the “Greater Key of Solomon”, a foundational grimoire of Western Esotericism that contains influences of Judaic mysticism/Kabbalah, Roman astrology and Hermetic alchemy.

“Every one knoweth in the present day that from time immemorial Solomon possessed knowledge inspired by the wise teachings of an angel, to which he appeared so submissive and obedient, that in addition to the gift of wisdom, which he demanded, he obtained with profusion all the other virtues; which happened in order that knowledge worthy of eternal preservation might not be buried with his body.” [The Greater Key of Solomon (1999), Liddell & Mathers]
