Books that lay bare the human condition

As a literary term, "the human condition" is typically used in the context of ambiguous subjects such as the meaning of life, the circuitous path to self-actualisation, or moral concerns.

Outside our morality as by divinity there is simply no humanity
Righteousness as being of God's likeness, this is the ultimate in defining who we are as men walking the face of earth. That outside our morality as by divinity there is simply no humanity. So before we get tangled in to long twisted talks about “its crimes”, let us here first deal with the question as to who we are. For it is in that answer we come to find what we stand for, and that is pretty much who we are; being of God's likeness, that is exactly what makes us to be what we are, man.

So without adhering to the Truth that keep us in that divine frames of our human form, we then have nothing to say to each other. For it is only when a man begin to take his place as being of God's likeness, that a woman too come to fall in her place as being made out of a man; not to be “equals”, but to be partners, in this God given life.

It's time to re-think the concept of success. Every human being on this planet seeks it, even when they think they already have it. Why? Interestingly enough, it's because we become confounded by distracting motivating and coercive forces that exist in our world and drive us away from what we really want.

Caroline followed all the rules in her capitalist society: university education, lucrative career, husband, home, cars, and vacations. She assumed her success would bring happiness. She had everything but that. One Monday morning, traveling through an April blizzard she follows her usual commute to work. On the way she recalls a conversation she had with a woman from Spain the day before. Determined to reclaim her humanity on foreign soil she returns home, packs her belongings, and heads to the airport where she asked for an available seat to anywhere.
I wrote this novel for people who have questioned, or in light of current world events—wars, drones, secret prisons, loss of privacy and freedom, hunger, homelessness, inequality, and corporate undemocratic governments—are beginning to question their convictions,role in society,or society itself. As one reader said, "If you've ever thought your life could be different, dreamed of recreating your life then "Just to Be Held" is what you need to start you down the path of reclaiming your humanity."

Wanna escape?

Meet Jerrod Beams, human cog. He's not even a piece of the machine. Just a piece of a piece. After 25 years as a government wage-slave, he's just spinning in place.

Every day, he commutes from his nice house to his good job and knocks off another of the 14,000 workdays of a federal career. Two mindless hours on the road every day, unrelieved by nine mindless intervening hours in his cubicle. He lives the nightmare life of the blandly comfortable, where his quiet desperation is silent even to his own ears.

Until he reads The Book: Timothy Ferriss' The 4-Hour Work Week.

This entrepreneurial self-help book forces him to examine his life. He realizes to his horror that not only is he miserable, but he cannot define his dream life. He just knows he needs Out!

Join Jerrod as he awakes from the nightmare of cubical-dwelling suburban conformity, escapes 9-to-5, and reclaims his birthright to happiness.

People think they want to meet an angel, but they really don’t. The awful truth is that meeting an angel is the scariest, most life-altering moment of any mortal’s short existence. Angels have always had their voices raised in songs of praise and their wings dipped in rivers of blood. When the Throne needs a mortal slain, or an army felled, an angel is sent. When a city or nation needs to be leveled, and the ground sown with salt for a thousand years, an angel is the destroyer.
