THE INWARD OUTLOOK

"It is possible for people to see what has been obscured from their awareness. It is possible to step from the invisible to the visible. We are so afraid that we cannot be what we dream ourselves to be, that we stay hidden inside of a persona that we ourselves created for our survival. Bring the invisible to light so that you can begin to see your own beauty and claim your wholeness and your true voice. When what has been obscured is illuminated, you remember who you truly are. The result is an inherently synchronized person inspired to learn and grow, who is infused with the vitality of self-actualization. Such self-perception cannot be overestimated in terms of its capacity to produce extraordinary positive results."

Laura Basha, PhD


"The Inward Outlook gently reawakened me to several simple and accessible actions to take to have more joy, happiness, and peace in life. Dr.Basha's book has given me the opportunity to slow down my thinking and practice being aware of the reality created by such thinking. With her masterful guidance, one is able to free one's self up from even long-held disempowering beliefs. This written teaching is clearly demonstrative of her deep engagement in the practice of the Art of Transformation, as well as fresh and engaging, leaving one with the recognition that even in the rough spots, life experience can be joyful and so much easier. This work is phenomenally empowering."

Xavier Dubois, CEO, EVOX Omnimedia


"Laura Basha is a true teacher. She has deep knowledge based on years of study, life experience, and personal introspective work."

Lewis Fulwiler, Senior Consultant, Senn Delaney Leadership Consulting Group, LLC


"I am a successful businessman who has built a successful business on a global scale ... I can confidently say that I would not be as successful as I am today in my personal life and my business without the work of Dr. Basha."

For more than sixty years a handwritten poetry journal languished in an attic. Rescued before the estate sale by a granddaughter, Mary Lachman, who opened the text and journeyed into an enthralling past. The poems painted a breathtaking portrait of the American heartland---the wonder of nature and saga of human relationships in the 1920s to 1940s, as well as musings on God and heaven. Intrigued, Lachman combined the collection of poems with her own recollections of Indiana. Joining intimate stories with original poems, The Moth at the Window re-creates the charm and simplicity of an amazing era, and brings to life the story of a small town dentist and his family.

By Eddie M. Leung

You are sizing up a copy of this book at an airport bookstore. As you look outside you would see hundreds of hardworking business, technical, marketing people passing by. You probably are one of those productive and relatively happy carbon based human units out there. Have you ever thought of what if you get attacked by a life threatening disease like cancer suddenly and without warning? Do you know that half of all living Americans will get some form of cancer at some point in their lives?

Eddie Leung, the author, was an engineering physicist that was having fun in all sorts of exciting projects, good at what he was doing and relatively healthy and happy. Within a period of a month, he was hit with the life threatening acute pancreatitis and then pronounced having a rare & extremely aggressive form of cancer called the Cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer). This is the story of his journey through a rigorous treatment that involves the dangerous Whipple surgery, high dosage radiation & chemo therapies and subsequently unpleasant blood infection (sepsis), applying his scientific approach and management skills.

This book is a collection of what Eddie learned in terms of the skills as to how to fight cancer physiologically, mentally and spiritually; how to recover from a major surgery like Whipple and make the dreadful radiation and chemo therapies work for the patient. The detailed manuscript describes the feelings and thinking of a cancer patient, the trials and tribulations a caretaker must go through, the importance of faith & positive mental attitude in his battle for survival and eventually the jubilation associated with the change from a cancer patient to a cancer survivor. It is filled with fear, tears, compassion, light-hearted moments and finally happiness.

Since cancer is becoming so common in our daily life, it is a must read for the general public, especially cancer patients and their caretakers.

There is no such thing as excelling at something without practice -- and lots of it. A boy is an aspiring man in search of a roadmap for how to be one. A girl is a woman in the making who needs some help with some finishing touches.

A city boy, I had little association with animals, with the exception of a male English bulldog, Fella, who was my best friend until I was fi ve years old. We played together, napped together and ate from the same bowl together when our mother wasn’t looking. His broad tongue covered my whole head in two swipes and many giggles. I was fi ve years old when he died but I remember him as though it was yesterday. Th e picture on the front cover is my Fella. He, above all others instilled in me a love for all animals. I grew up in Canada, receiving a doctorate in veterinary medicine at the University of Guelph, Ontario Veterinary College. At the age of nineteen I dedicated the next two years of my life to my church, serving as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in France and Switzerland. In the fi nal week of my mission, I had an experience I have recorded in these pages that softened my heart and my head and led me down a path to my future life’s work. Th e subsequent adventures are recorded in large part in this book. Life changing adventures and lessons learned in the small family farm barns, often in the dead of night, of central New York and northern Vermont, and within the welcome warmth of my clinic.

By Joseph F. Dumond

I, Joseph F. Dumond, was born in 1958 and raised a Catholic. In 1978, after graduating from Orangeville High School in Ontario, Canada; I married my high school sweetheart, Barbara. We had our daughter in 1981, our son in 1982 and then later, our third child—another son, in 1990.

In 1982, I first heard Herbert Armstrong teaching about the Sabbath on my car radio late one night on my way to work in Eastern Ontario. A few days later, I heard him again as I left from work. I wrote in to request some material and found myself compelled to prove what he said about the Sabbath wrong. I worked seven days a week as a foreman supervising natural gas pipeline workers. There was no way I could possibly take a day off to attend church on Saturday. But finally, after six months of solid day and night study, I could no longer discount just how clear Yehovah has always been on this matter and that we all should be keeping the Sabbath. I was forced to conclude the seventh day Saturday Sabbath had never changed and that it was the Catholic Church that was to blame for changing the Saturday Sabbath to a Sunday—a counterfeit Sabbath which all Christian churches have continued to observe once the Catholic mold was cast and the heretical dye set.

When Yehovah opened a door, I began to attend the Worldwide Church of God and not long after my first visit, I was told about the Holy Days. It was through those Holy Days—all of which are found in Leviticus 23—that I was able to learn of Yehovah’s divinely inspired plan for mankind and how it was all to come together. For quite some time thereafter, I operated under the mistaken conviction I knew of His plan in full in this regard until I came to understand the Sabbatical Years—both past and future. The last Sabbatical Year was from Aviv (March-April) 2009–Aviv 2010. This was also the first one I had ever kept.

I began to study in earnest each week, while attending church regularly, from that moment forward (from 1982 until 1994). I then had to leave the Worldwide Church of God because, somewhere along the way, they were starting to bear a striking resemblance to the Catholic Church I had already walked away from in 1982. It was also at this time that I was told all I had learned in the World Wide Church of God, was “wrong.”

So, for the next two years I no longer attended any church and went back to working seven days a week. Then, in 1996, as the Holy Days were fast approaching, I felt a deep desire to start keeping the Sabbath and the Holy Days once again. Not having the remotest clue this time where to go or who to turn to, I began to keep the Holy Days myself by venturing out in my car, parking at the end of a dead end road and praying and crying out to Yehovah with all my heart.

During this time, I also had to rethink everything I understood to be true up until that point. I had to do this without using any church literature from any group and without listening to any pre-canned sermons or scholarly lectures. I had to prove the Sabbath by the Bible itself and other credible reference materials—including applicable encyclopedia volumes. It was while I was engaged in this period of intense study that I learned of Noah’s Ark, the Red Sea Crossing, Jabal

This compilation is an effort historically to trace the systrematic and ordered changes in Constitutional thinking, by judicious selection of the key operative phrases and concepts imbeded in hundreds of cases of varying importance, more clearly to illustrate the evolutionary process by which the Constitution has come to have its current form and meaning. The effort has been to extract from the hundreds of case decisions and dissents, those immutable words and phrases which capture the essence of the points at issue, in the Justice's own words just as they wrote them in the white heat of judicial argument. Moreover, the effort has been to trace the chain of precedents for cases and concepts, more clearly to show how the jigs and jogs fo decisions have altered the Constitution as applied. Whether or not agreed to (being the subject of strong controversy between the members of the Court itself), that process is one of organic, evolutionary growth, reflecting the chaging times, concepts, legal theory, and political ideas in the American experience. In a larger perspective, the Constitution has been the greatest American export to a world grappling with the desire to emulate the American experience of liberty under law. The volume will be of interest to students of the subject, as well as the legal profession; it is the product of a lifetime spent in the study and teaching of the Great Document.

This little volume of eight case studies in American foreign policy grew out of the author's course on that subject in a Leisure Learning offering at the University of West Florida during the Presidential campaign in 2008. It is, therefore, designed to appeal to the causal and well as the serious, scholarly student of how foreign policy is made. The thesis of the work is that major mistakes in the past have been made precisely because foreign policy, used as a wedge issue in Presidential campaigns, has been made without long-term analysis of the implications of policy so hastily made, and for the most base of political purposes. The conclusion is a plea for reducing the frequency of making such mistakes under such pressure, relieving the nation of the necessity to rue the resulting mistakes. That begs the question, "How do the citizens of a democracy, such as the American, have input into the creation of foreign policy, surely a vital function of political debate, without falling into the trap illustrated by these eight case studies?" Both general and specific recommendations are made, reflecting the author's academic and real-world foreign policy experience.

“Hello Dears” is a book told through emails (mostly), that I wrote to the most important people in my life. This book is about my personal journey through Breast Cancer. When I was first told that I had Breast Cancer, I needed a way to be in touch with all of the people that I knew would be concerned for me. I didn’t want to spend my time on the phone repeating myself again and again and again. So, I decided to write to the people that were in my address book on our computer. I figured that, if they were in my address book, then they new me well enough to know what was going on. My immediate feeling when I was told, was concern for my husband, our daughter, and my family. I have said this to them, to my Dears, and to everyone that I’ve shared my story with – I would much rather be the one battling, than anyone that is close to me. I can’t imagine how they must have felt hearing that someone that they care about had the c-word. So, I started to type emails and send them out each step of the way. I wanted them all to know that I was in fighter’s mode. I wanted them all to know that I was going to be OK. I wanted them all to know that forward motion is what got me through each and every turn of this ride. I wanted them to check their ta-ta’s and tell their friends to do the same. And, I wanted them to share my story with as many people as possible, so that they too could save their lives with early detection. I tried, as best I could, to keep a strong sense of humor throughout the process. That, in turn, made the writing a lot lighter and hopefully entertaining. Each step of the way, I let My Dears know what we were going through and what was to come. Again, I wanted them to know what we were dealing with, so that they wouldn’t worry as much about the unknown. I wanted to educate them, as best I could, so that they could do the same as they passed my story along. This book covers everything from the discovery of my lump, to the reconstruction of my new ta-ta’s and everything in between. My hope is, that when people read this book, they too will realize that with forward motion, and positivity, you can overcome and be stronger. I know that my battle with the c-word will never truly be over. This book is for my Dears, and for all of those that have been touched by the c-word. This book is for my daughter, so that when she is mature enough to “know”, she will understand what Mommy went through and how I kicked the c-words ass. Reagan will learn just how much her being on this earth has helped me get through it all.
