The media tends to portray Africa in a manner that grossly distorts reality. The picture they paint is intended to make people of African descent feel ashamed of their past and their identity. This is unacceptable and must change. It is therefore a moral imperative for all those who can make themselves heard, to speak out. These texts reflect the point of view of an African intellectual who has selected them for this volume because they were all born out of the desire to tell the truth as it is.

Noted architect Jamal Jameson and award winning TV news reporter Tory Carter, friends since childhood, are faced with the challenge of controlling their appetite for the opposite sex. As former star collegiate athletes and now handsome single black professionals, meeting women has never been a problem. With a flair for artful conversation, they float like sexual butterflies from one leaf to another. Commitment has always been outside their flight pattern. Jamals romantic and compassionate personality captures hearts, yet unexpectedly, he begins to question his revolving door policy. Torys handsome, egotistical persona drives his need to cover as many women as he does news stories. For him, it is the only way to live. Philosophical differences push their lifelong friendship as Jamal realizes through a chance meeting with a stranger, that his way of relating to women is as shallow as his best friend and that his way of dealing with them has lacked the most important ingredient

Aroma didn't know where the path would lead; she was just curious to see beyond the mirror. The story therefore reveals, quite literally, the truth, that when Aroma truly searched for an answer she got it; and not only that, she began to experience it too, supernaturally. However, it was the gift that the King had given her that revealed so much more than she thought possible: the power and the truth to transform lives. And yet, she knew that there was still so much more to come and that it wouldn't be for her alone. NB*This is the second book written by the author, however, it is the first to be released. (Although categorized as volume 2, it can be read independently.)
Facing up to this is often very difficult and painful as we are constantly having to deal with the illusion that our attachments and desires may be serving us well in some way.
Author: Jacek Piesiewicz
Many teachers tell us that we create difficulties for ourselves by clinging to attachments and desires that draw us away from recognizing the reality that is constantly manifesting before us. Facing up to this is often very difficult and painful as we are constantly having to deal with the illusion that our attachments and desires may be serving us well in some way. By not wanting to observe how those attachments may be affecting our behaviour, we create difficulties for ourselves and often a great sense of fear in`letting them go¿. Our primary purpose in coming to Earth is to learn. But the attachments and desires that we hold dear make this very difficult for us as they act as a mirror which reflects the world of illusion inwhich we are living. It is within this world of illusion that we create a belief system that we are unable or unwilling to test, for it provides us with a sense of purpose and security which we are fearful of`letting go¿. It is therefore my hope that some of the `spiritual insights¿ provided in this book will benefit the reader in some way.

Leif Sandbergs internationally critically acclaimed book Ending, published in 2017, deals with panic attacks and aging and materialized after a cancer surgery. If Ending resides before death and in its vicinity, Beyond the Mirror passes on to the other side of death. A journey in untouched land, with its starting point in Ending. With images from reality, the imagination helps to enter new worlds, as its told by the photographer in the books text, I want to travel in the crossroads between reality and fiction.The picture material has partially emerged during hikes at the Camino Santiago de Compostela. The tranquility and the well-being of hiking has opened my mind for thoughts and extraterrestrial experiences that have penetrated the pictures and enriched the reality we see with our eyes. At the time of the project, Leif Sandberg scanned old negatives and his fathers holiday pictures from his archive. Her found images of deserted landscapes that conveyed an uncertainty about where you are and became part of the depicted fragility of our existence. The project itself developed into worlds beyond what we see, beyond the mirror.
