Ibn 'Arabi "The Enlightened are not Bound by Religion"
Ibn 'Arabi, The Enlightened are not Bound by Religion Author: Kevser Yesiltash, Translate: Pinar Karaman Kaan, Editor: Clare Duman, Paperback: 362 pages, Publisher: Bookcity.Co; 1 edition (August 23, 2017), Language: English, ISBN-10: 1912311011 ISBN-13: 978-1912311019 The mystical teachings of Ibn ‘Arabi, particularly influential in Anatolia, are rooted in a tens-of-thousands-of-years old knowledge attainment and transfer tradition, which is one of the fundamental cornerstones of Sufism. Through his unique method, Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi performed an unparalleled role in conveying the secrets of the Sufi mystical teachings across the generations. The secrets concealed in his teachings are not immediately revealed, and the knowledge they contain is hidden in such language that those who encounter it are often left in a state of shock and bewilderment. Those who strived to understand this language have been able to discover the real meaning hidden within, yet the majority, without making such an effort, took the meaning at face value and accused Ibn ‘Arabi of being anti-religious. The title of this book, ‘The Enlightened are Not Bound by Religion’, is one of Arabi’s notable sayings. To be able to understand just this saying requires knowledge of many subjects of the mystical teachings. Kevser Yesiltash explores the deep of mystical secrets of his saying in the book.
Embracing Victory Over the Storm of Depression
Embracing Victory Over the Storm of Depression   “And they have overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word oftheir testimony” (Revelation 12:11) Most of my life, I have struggled with depression . . . a dark and hopeless place that was numbed by binge drinking when it became too much for me to handle. At the time, I thought it would help ease the pain of the emotional and physical abuse that had occurred during childhood. At an early age, I became insecure, lonely, depressed, and a perfectionist . . . all in the hopes of overcoming, but never overcame. Even after saying “yes” to Jesus, I struggled with binge drinking. Knowing, that I needed help, I began to receive counseling. Unfortunately, within a couple of appointments, I would convince myself that I was okay, only to discover the harsh reality that I was not—a cycle that lasted longer than it should have because of my stubbornness and unwillingness to work through the pain. Working through pain brings healing, but at the time I was not cooperating with God’s healing plan for me. Condemnation and shame consumed me. After all, how could I be a Christian and still struggle like I was? I doubted God’s forgiveness because of the prison I kept myself in. God gave me the keys to break free when I said “yes” to Him, but in my absolute foolishness . . . I did not use them. In essence, I was oblivious to the free gift of salvation He had given me. During my healing process, I have learned that God has a very good sense of humor. At times, when God calls us . . . it can be in the “midst” of our pain and darkness. For it is in the “midst” of things that God shows up in greatness! When He called me to write VictoryEmbraced . . . I was not only cleaning dishes . . . I was still in the “midst” of struggling with depression, which I have discovered is partly due to heredity. However, I now know I have God’s DNA . . . and because of this, I will always be victorious! While collecting testimonies for the book, I began to experience symptoms of PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder), which is a major mental depressive disorder and definitely has a few extra edges than regular PMS, occurring only to 3 to 8 percent of women. I have been told many times that I am quite unique . . . not only in my sense of humor but also in how I process and see things in life. Now there is indisputable evidence that what has been said for years is true! Yep, this definitely proved it . . . not only to myself but also to those closest to me. PMDD usually makes its ugly appearance in women who are in their late 30s or mid-40s. Mine showed up when I was 36. With all the hormone shifts, I also started having simple-partial seizures, which are rarely noticed by others. They begin with a feeling of deja vu  followed by staring that can last a few minutes. In my potential for perfectionism, I happen to have all of the symptoms of PMDD . . . not just the four or five that classify the disorder and help to make a diagnosis. Symptoms of PMDD include anxiety and a feeling of being on edge, memory issues, severe moodswings, crying for no reason, extreme sensitivity to abandonment and rejection, anger and increased conflict with the ones you love, decreased interest in usual activities, feelings of being overwhelmed as well as feeling out of control, joint and muscle pain, weight gain, insomnia, and headaches. Yes, a long list of symptoms, but nothing God cannot handle. Sometimes one month can be worse than another. During the more intense months, I pray for it to be over quickly and at times have felt as if I am holding on to Him for dear life. I have a neurologist for the seizures, which are now under control with medicine. After two years of being seizure free, my doctor can begin lowering the dosage until I am completely off of it. My psychiatrist is to help take the edge off of the PMDD. Through it all, I have the most renowned doctor in the world by my side overseeing things . . . my sweet and precious God. I am learning there are things I can do to help relieve the symptoms of PMDD such as hormone therapy, taking nutritional supplements, antidepressants, exercise, drinking less caffeine. My hardest to follow through on is eating less chocolate, cheese, and carbohydrates. Yes, it is true . . . sometimes chocolate is a girl’s best friend. I have learned that with any disorder—not only in my life, but with others as well—there is hope because God has the power to take any disorder and create order out of a total mess, He can create beauty. And because I have learned the character of God and who He says He is, I have absolute faith that He will provide the avenues for my healing even if that means He balances all my hormones through early menopause. A miracle in itself! I do not put anything past God . . . He can do all things! Being in the process of healing does not mean failure because obtaining victory is a continuous motion of moving forward. We are a work in progress . . . always under construction. With God, seven months of intense counseling has helped transform my life. I have learned to put God first in all I do . . . and to depend on Him for all I need. I am blessed to have a very loving husband who has been supportive, understanding, and patient with me along my journey of Embracing Victory Over the Storm of Depression. VictoryEmbraced has great reviews on Amazon and Barnes and Noble) Available for your Kindle, Nook, and iBook too. All profits earned from the sale of the book will support the VictoryEmbraced ministry.

I'm Thinking About Something In My....
I am currently illustrating and designing a series of alphabet guessing games children's books for Ms. Josette Stanton. The books are based on a reading and guessing game that Ms. Stanton and her beloved granddaughter Sophie played with every chance they got. Each letter of the alphabet begins with the phrase 'I'm Thinking About Something...'. The purpose of each book is identical, in which the child is given several written clues for each letter, and must then find the correct item within the corresponding illustration/design. However, each published book's title and theme is unique, such as 'I'm Thinking About Something in My Refrigerator', 'I'm Thinking About Something Under My Christmas Tree', 'I'm Thinking About Something in My Classroom', 'I'm Thinking About Something in My Garden' and currently in production is 'I'm Thinking About Something in My Aquarium'. Josette's granddaughter so enjoys this game, that she decided to write books so that other children can enjoy the game as well. If you want to enjoy them as well, please visit http://www.sophieandmimi.com/

Suppressionism In Art
Suppression in psychology - is the act of stopping yourself from feeling something? it is generally ineffective because even if you hold back or suppress an emotion like anger, that feeling returns with a vengeance. Suppressionism in art- deep rooted emotion in the conscious or unconscious mind that is released uncontrollably in art. Which clearly exhibits intense emotion, A traumatic trigger exhumes the suppressed emotions, it opens up a portal to the creative side of the brain as an outlet for pain. It's the bodies defense mechanism at work. There is always a very profound story intertwined with the massive amounts of artwork produced. Suppressionism in art is currently being introduced and validated as a new genre of art, as of 2015 by Margaret Grandinetti I welcome feedback and stories of others on this topic
KickStart Campaign : Reality Television Pilots' Kickoff
http://kck.st/1JbHH2H Reality Television ...... There's seven documentary projects that I've written they are, "Tainted Love", "American Firefighters", "Only one Crown", "Host", "I used to be homeLess" ,"The Perfect Suit", and "Street Hustlers" I would like to see them each come to life on the television screen. It's reality based of ordinary folks opening up to share their personal lives with the world. These shows are designed to deal with the different tough issues that they face on a daily bases and fit a program for their specific needs and see how can the crews from each show help them become the family, man or woman their capable of being. The crew members will be shadowing folks on the streets, job, you name it, to get a feel of what their lives are all about. Document their dangers, worries, their struggles one heart beat at a time! There's also a couple shows I've written that has a fun not so serious side to them such as the rap off competition included in the "Only one Crown" television pilot and "Perfect Suit" where good gentleman gets fitted for the right suit for their special occasions. Each show, each episode are different but the main (focal point) goal of each is the same and that is helping real down to earth folks make a turn around in their own lives. These shows will raise self esteem, self awareness as well as stability to each participating cast member. Some of the shows will also be in dedication to those who's fallen while on duty to save others. #Format #Documentary - Style , #1Hour #Series #Stand-Alone #Episodes #RealityTV Risks and challenges It maybe a delay in getting in touch with the right production team. As you know nothing happens overnight. I do plan on working with a production team to put together a film of each television pilot as a sample to show exactly if the show were in actual production, what they would expect to see. Then I will pitch the film to major production companies. Your contribution donations are needed, thanks in advance to those contribute to this fundraiser!
