China’s Great Wall End to End
“China’s Great Wall End to End” is the true story of a mid-1980s solo journey, hiking across China on top of the Great Wall. A battle of triumphs and jubilation over misery and misfortune, this photo journal documents this “Seventh Wonder of the World” like never before. Closed since 1949, China had just opened its borders to tourism, but the majority of the country was still basically off-limits, and this 4000-mile journey was largely out of bounds. Hiding from China’s “men in green” was key to survival, but that didn’t prevent getting detained over and over, and penalized again and again. The story of this extreme eleven-month challenge also features 150 original images of the Great Wall as it crosses the heartland of China before vanishing in the Gobi Desert. Confucius once said, “Determination make a wise man do foolish things.”

Dawn of the Egyptian Masters, The Origins
Explore the Knowledge of the Ancient Egyptian Masters and the Origins of Their Wisdom and Power. From the dawn of civilization to the present day, accounts of highly enlightened masters possessed of supreme knowledge and power have appeared in the histories, literature and traditions of cultures throughout the world. Transcribed directly from the journals and field notes of explorer M.G. Hawking’s sixty-two months in remote regions of the world, this book examines the existence of these great masters, presents a detailed account of their profound knowledge, and explores the possible origins of their wisdom and remarkable powers. We begin with the translation and analysis of an esoteric manuscript, ‘The Golden Crown,’ a creation of the great Egyptian Master Kalika-Khenmetaten, who authored her masterpiece under the patronage of the majestic Kings Amenhotep III and Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten) over three-thousand-three-hundred years ago. Passages from Kalika’s manuscript clearly reveal the profound knowledge and wisdom of the great masters of distant ages: “Experience is the product of the mind—your conscious thoughts and images—propelled into being by feelings; this forms the reality that you experience. You are therefore not at the mercy of a reality that exists apart from yourself, or is thrust upon you.” —Kalika-Khenmetaten Explore the origins of the wisdom of the great masters through accounts of encounters and conversations the author and his companions had with individuals they believe to be the true Ri-iha-mo, the ‘mountain goddesses’ or ‘celestials’ that are legendary throughout the Himalayan regions of Nepal, Tibet, and beyond. These encounters, insofar as extensive research indicates, have no counterpart in available world literature. The underlying concepts are present in many profound literatures, both modern and ancient, but no descriptions of actual conversations with the Ri-iha-mo that reveal profound revelations about our Universe, our planet, and our true nature, revelations that can greatly assist in understanding our world, its history, and our role and power in creating precisely the life we desire. Such accounts may exist, but have apparently remained sealed, that is to say esoteric or arcane. An outstanding book for anyone interested in the wisdom of the Egyptian Masters, and especially valuable for anyone wishing to expand their own knowledge and personal power. Includes Reference Citations and a Source Material Anthology. A Kindle Unlimited Book. 2020 Edition, e-reader page count 330. For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.

A Great Master Speaks, Immense Powers of the Ancients Revealed: The True Secrets of Dynastic Egypt
Discover the Secrets of Power as Revealed in an Ancient Manuscript written by a Supreme Egyptian Master, circa 1370 B.C. This book takes you on an extraordinary journey through both space and time, from the remote ice peaks of the Himalayan Mountains to the highlands of Tibet, and far back through the ages to the mystic landscapes of ancient Egypt. Echoing down those vast corridors of time is the voice of the supreme Egyptian Master Kalika-Khenmetaten, who authored her esoteric manuscripts under the patronage of the great Kings of Upper and Lower Egypt, Amenhotep III and his successor Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten), over three-thousand-three-hundred years ago. Riveting, magical, inspirational, and richly enlightening, the story of Kalika is one of the most epic in history, and her writings reveal the great knowledge and power of the masters of those distant ages. An excerpt: “Kalika’s style is delightful; natural, intimate, vivid, confidential. It is a comfort to be spoken to so familiarly by a master. Jump in at any point in her narrative and you are caught by the arm and swept along, never knowing, and rarely caring, where you will go. In the early section she writes on an eclectic selection of topics; anything that strikes her fancy or mood flows from her pen, including scores of illuminating anecdotes that transform the abstract into the intelligible. The farther our work progressed, the greater our realization that this was no little brook that flowed from Egypt, but a mighty river.” Fragments of the material presented in this book have at various times through the millennia appeared in the more profound Eastern philosophies and secret wisdom traditions of various ages. This is to be expected—the knowledge that conveys true power has an ancient and possibly conjoint origin. In modern times, relics of this knowledge have resurfaced in various formats, although unfortunately absent both the most fundamental elements as well as the most advanced elements of the wisdom system of the supreme masters. The writings of Kalika-Khenmetaten are absent nothing—they are all-encompassing. Attaining the ability to directly manifest whatever persons, circumstances and events you desire to experience in your life cannot be truly or fully achieved through simplistic concepts of “positive thinking” or some alleged “secret,” as so many people have been disappointed to discover. Kalika produced her manuscript, The Golden Crown, for important reasons. It is to some extent a manual, a comprehensive guide to reaching higher awareness, written by a supreme master for masters, but not only for masters. Kalika intended that it could be utilized by persons of requisite ability to reach, through their own efforts, significantly expanded levels of awareness. It sets forth the foundational recognitions and essential principles of consciousness necessary to enable and master extraordinary creative powers. In this book, you’ll learn from a true master how to empower your own creative abilities in every aspect of your life—wealth, health, relationships, love, happiness, and in every interaction you have in the world. If studied with care and practiced with intent, you will be enabled to recognize and utilize the hidden, untapped power within you. The material in this book, owing to its nature, will if allowed come to possess a depth that will take on a life of its own. The knowledge and concepts expressed, when fully absorbed and diligently practiced, can yield truly enormous rewards. We thank our wonderful readers for their requests for an enlarged edition of our first book exploring Kalika and her work: Kalika-Khenmetaten, The Supreme Egyptian Adept. We hope this volume will answer those requests for a book that includes the full story of the original discovery of Kalika’s manuscript, the process of translation, along with an expanded, in-depth examination of her life and writings. 2021 Edition, Kindle page count 445 (estimated, actual count varies depending on the reading device used). A Kindle Unlimited Book. For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.
