This collection of essays provides indispensable studies of the monumental 1973 album, The Dark Side of the Moon, from a variety of musical, cultural, literary and social perspectives.

The album is placed within the context of developments in late 1960s/early 1970s popular music, with particular focus on the use of a variety of segues between tracks which give the album a multidimensional unity.
(Windependence Master Level). There is a long tradition in jazz of instruments carrying on a conversation either intricate with soloistic dialogues (often improvised) or the call and response of larger forces. Speak to Me is above all such a conversation, at first among soloists and then among more and more performers as they gradually join in. This piece begins with a simple tune that increasingly overlaps with and is interrupted by other ideas, generating enormous energy along the way.

Providing insights into the spiritual world and God’s plans for mankind’s future, Angels Speak to Me chronicles the visions author Dennis Wayne Schroll has experienced throughout his lifetime. A variety of angels, archangels, cherubim, and heavenly people—as well as God—have spoken to Schroll, and they have predicted a new age in which new prophets will bring forward words from God into the world. Through these visions, Angels Speak to Me explains how one is saved, why one must be saved to prevent torment, how it is important to ask God for help in getting to heaven, and how to continue a Christian life with God’s support. Schroll shares the messages he has received to help Christians and all people of the world realize the situation the world faces and he communicates the importance of believing in God and changing our ways to show favor in God’s eyes. Angels Speak to Me delivers God’s message that he wants all of the world’s people to be saved from Satan and the damnation of Hell.

“When we approach God humbly and bow down before Him, we put ourselves in a position to hear from Him.” Are you longing to hear God’s voice, but feeling disconnected? God wants to speak directly to each of His beloved children, not to just a few “spiritual elite.” Priscilla Shirer looks at God’s call to Samuel and uncovers six characteristics essential for hearing from God: A simple RELATIONSHIP, unfettered by sin or pride A single-minded WORSHIP, focused on God and His glory A set-apart HOLINESS, determined to live a life that honors Him A still ATTENTIVENESS, willing to be silent before Him A sold-out HUNGER, passionately pursuing God’s presence A servant SPIRIT, submitted to God’s call Her warmth and honesty, combined with a wealth of practical help, will inspire you to cultivate these traits in your own life. By doing so, you will prepare yourself to draw closer to Him and to hear His voice more clearly.

Can anyone communicate with the spirits? Or do you have to be born with these abilities? The answer to both questions is yes. Yes, anyone can communicate with the spirits of those who are no longer incarnate. And yes, we have to be born with the ability to speak with spirits. If this appears to you as a contradiction in terms, I can assure you it is not. The greatest mystery surrounding spirit communication is that there is no mystery. We all are born with our psychic centers fully intact. We are all originally wired to enable us to function as effortlessly in the world of spirits as we do in the world of form. And there are no exceptions. What you do with this ability is entirely up to you. The dead are often just as unhappy because from their perspective it is the living who disconnect. And in response the spirits begin to speak a mantra of their own - I am still here. I can see you. I can hear you. Talk to me.

So if you want to experience God and hear His voice for yourself, then this book is definitely for you. Join Berni Dymet as he takes us deep into God’s Word to discover exactly what God has to say about how He speaks to us and how we can hear His voice for ourselves. How Can I Hear God Speak to Me? is a book that’s with Biblical insight – and yet so relevant to us, “here and now”. Once you start, you just won’t be able to put it down.
