Stories and autobiographical narrations have particular importance in society, whether they are told, shared or just listened to. This book presents 19 narrations of authors about their own experiences as migrants. Coming from different parts of the world, they tell stories about struggles, development, doubt, challenges, hope and empowerment, sometimes amusing the reader and then again containing a saddening or thought-provoking undertone. These creative works are set in various cultural contexts such as for example Germany, Australia, South Africa, America, India or Hungary and describe how life experiences in different countries contribute to and influence the development of transcultural identities. This book is a must for readers interested in transcultural stories, creative writing and identity development in cultural and transcultural contexts.

Twenty-seventh anniversary of the bioenergemal [‘spiritual’] research. Patriarchs, prophets, Buddha, Jesus, Mary, Joseph and associates, Lamas and Mohammad apologize to their followers for the millenarian fake they have been promoting. All the religious figures promote themselves through parasitizing of dreams, inducing in/appropriated scenes and images in the dreamer conforming to their convenience. Without this resource, they had been unable to publicise themselves. Nevertheless, this book is not on religions, but about whom the religious figures and many persons more were and are. Doubts like these raised in the II Vatican Council, perhaps propitiated John XXIII biocollapse [‘death’]. Exceptional information! (Basic English).

This book recalls the memories of a young English businessman, who was not in the least interested in working in Africa, however the Corporation believed that his experience of working in a rough tough and hard to bluff industry made him the perfect candidate for the position in Nairobi, Kenya and they offered him a package that he could only imagine in his wildest dreams and the opportunity to move from a cold and wet English climate. With no more than a good gut feeling, he accepted the position little knowing that the decision he had just made, would change his life forever. This fast paced easy to read book, takes the reader through the complete lifecycle of an expatriate living and working in Nairobi, from the excitement of getting to know a new country, to falling totally in love with it, and finally to the point where daily life-threatening situations bought him to realise that if he did not leave on an aeroplane seat, he would soon leave in a wooden box.

Exploring four generations of life in Australia, this intricate personal history shows the insularity of small towns, rigid class and caste divisions, and the effects of two world wars on Australian lives. Told with humor and dry wit, these extraordinary stories of pioneering struggles, deep religious divisions, and conflict within the family help navigate the history of Australia—from the abundance of the eastern Byron Bay hinterland to the hardships of the northern soldier-settler farm in North Queensland. Fascinating and engaging, this familial recollection is a revealing study of Australia's past.

Remarkable story of a research project on the bioenerscience – intuitional knowledge – and a particular way of interaction with the bioenergemal (‘spiritual’) universe called bioenergemal communication. The author talks to a person (called Lucela) in relaxation as she describes extraordinary interactions with religious figures, including God the Father, Jesus, Mary and others – as well as the author himself. The author detects that threats and instructions become less and less veiled, and the religious figures are revealed as monopolistic and self-serving; while some of Lucela’s bioimages and bioscenes are truly terrifying. The conclusions are swaying tradition’s foundations and are ground-breaking steps in the fascinating field of bioenergemal communication.
