Books Description:

While most people find it relatively easy to manage their possessions, some find it extremely difficult. If you have a problem resisting the urge to acquire and you find your home cluttered and filled to capacity with items many people would find useless and unnecessary, you may suffer from a condition known as hoarding disorder. Hoarding is a behavioral problem consisting of clutter, difficulty discarding items, and excessive buying or acquiring. Hoarding is often associated with significant reduction in quality of life, and in extreme cases, it can pose serious health risks. If you or a loved one has hoarding disorder, this book can help. This fully updated Second Edition of Buried in Treasures outlines a scientifically based, effective program for helping those with hoarding disorder dig their way out of the clutter and chaos of their homes. Written by scientists and practioners who are leaders in studying and treating hoarding disorder, this book outlines a program of skill-building, learning to think about possessions in a different way, and gradual challenges to help people manage their clutter and their lives. It also provides useful information for family and friends of people who hoard, as they struggle to understand and help. Discover the reasons for your problems with acquiring, saving, and hoarding, and learn new ways of thinking about your possessions so you can decide what you really need and what you can do without. Learn to identify the "bad guys" that cause and maintain your hoarding behavior and meet the "good guys" who can help motivate you and put you on the path to change. Useful self-assessments will help you determine the severity of your problem. Training exercises, case examples, organizing tips, and motivation boosters help change the way you think and behave toward your possessions. This book provides easy-to-understand strategies and techniques that anyone can use.

Books Description:

The Japanese have long sought inspiration and legitimacy from the written record of their ancient past. The shaping of bygone eras to contemporary agendas began at least by the early eighth century, when the first court histories, namely the Kojiki and the Nihon shoki, were compiled. Since the late nineteenth century, historians have extensively mined these texts and other written evidence and by the late 1970s had nearly exhausted their meager sources. Fortunately for all those interested in uncovering the origins of Japanese civilization, archaeologists have been hard at work. Today, thanks to this postwar "archaeology boom," Japan historians have never been closer to recreating the lives of prehistoric peasants, ancient princes, and medieval samurai. Sacred Texts and Buried Treasures offers substantial new insights into early Japanese history (A.D. 100-800) through an integrated discussion of historical texts and archaeological artifacts. It contends that the rich archaeological discoveries of the past few decades permit scholars to develop far more satisfactory interpretations of ancient Japan than was possible when they were heavily dependent on written sources.

Books Description:

Hello my fellow readers thank you for stopping by and taking the time out to read what I have to say. For a very long time I have been writing short stories and poems. I would just write then lock them away in an old trunk I had saved. As time went by and I came to know the Lord as my personal savior, the writings intensify. Writing became a great hobby for me, especially when am feeling discouraged. The Lord begins to reveal to me many revelations on seed, trees and nature itself. On days when am alone I would go by the beach and write with joy and excitement. Stories would come like rain as the Lord would give them. I would imagine myself in a great big library just reading books and telling stories. Most of my stories also talks about life, destiny and purpose. On the road to my destiny to fulfill purpose we have to be mindful of everything that we encounter. Each event tells a story, each pitfall and disappointment comes as an eye opener, but it takes for us to see them and analyzed them for what they are and why they are there. Buried Treasure was the name given to me because of the stories that I wrote and would put them away in an old trunk as I said earlier. A word of inspiration was given to me by a great man of God that told me to dig up those stories and put them in a book form and here it is to this day. Buried Treasure gives a brief yet interesting boost of life in every form. God speaks to us in His creation as well as trials and disappointments. Buried Treasure helps point out those areas in your life that you need to work out. Short stories, poems and even an encouraging word. As you read you would get a clear understanding of life and all that you went through and maybe still going through. I pray that Buried Treasure open up a new world of hope and encouragement to you, that you can share with others that need uplifting. Healing begins as you open up Buried Treasure book. This book was written to help bring healing and strength in every area possible in your life. As you begin by reading let your mind be transform as your spirit is uplifted to that place of assurance. Buried Treasure Volume 1, is just the beginning of a new journey into the heart and the mind of the beholder, so I beckon to you to read. Spread the news; give a gift of Buried Treasure to a friend, a loved one or just share a story.
