Sovereignty

Every man is born with just one thing: his sovereignty - his power to respond to his environment and his circumstances. Unfortunately, most men have spent much of their lives giving away that sovereignty. Every time a man passes blame or shirks his responsibility, every time he makes excuses for his performance, and every time he trades his unlimited potential for a little perceived safety and security, he willingly submits himself to the mercy of others.Is it any wonder that men, in general, seem to have lost their way? You don't have to look very far to recognize that men don't seem to possess the same amount of vigor and purpose they once did. Take one sobering statistic—the rate of suicide in men—and you begin to see how damaging the effects of the voluntary subjugation of men to their families, their businesses, and their governments can be.It's not hard to understand why we give up control to others—it's easy and we're expected to....

A Compendium For The Broken Hearted

Twenty stories are meant to make you, in turn, very sad and very happy. There are about ten themes which are discussed in the book in both Breaks, which try to capture the instant a person's heart breaks, as well as Hearts, which are much sweeter in nature and evoke positive feelings. The final result, of course, is meant to be a bittersweet feeling.These stories, both Breaks (sad) and Hearts (happy), talk about a number of themes including parenthood, brotherhood, friendship, betrayal, addiction as well as few more. There are about ten in total, discussed in twenty stories. Of course, the main audience is meant to be anyone who feels broken hearted, but it came to my attention that anybody could read this book, provided that they are mature and are willing to read some quite sad things. This is where the idea of Breaks and Hearts arose, out of a deeper need to create a relatable book to as many people as possible.Besides, I cannot claim to be able to heal depression through short stories, no matter how much I wish to do it. This is why I shifted the book's attention to emotion, even a roller coaster of them. Still, deep inside, I want to help.

Stern explores casual miracles, relationships, and the natural world in Last Blue (2002); offers a satirical and redemptive vision in Everything Is Burning (2005) and Save the Last Dance (2008); meditates on the metamorphosis of aging in In Beauty Bright (2012); and captures the sensual joys of life—even when they are far in the past—in the wistful love poems and elegies of Galaxy Love (2017).
