Adventure


In fiction, the adventurer figure or Picaro may be regarded as a descendant of the knight-errant of Medieval romance. Like the knight, the adventurer roams through episodic encounters, usually involving wealth, romance, or fighting. Unlike the knight, the adventurer was a realistic figure, often lower class or otherwise impoverished, who is forced to make his way to fortune, often by deceit. Also, an adventurer is a roguish hero of low social class who lives by his or her wits in a corrupt society.

The following collection of archival and oral historical-consultation records pertaining to Waikamoi Preserve and the greater watershed of the Haleakala mountain lands on the island of Maui, was compiled by Kumu Pono Associates LLC, at the request of The Nature Conservancy-Hawaii. This study provides The Nature Conservancy and its partners in management of the Waikamoi Preserve, with a cultural assessment of the Waikamoi Preserve, as required by State review laws governi...

1848, Kamehameha III granted fee-simple interest of Kalialinui to a chiefly steward, Kamaikaaloa (Kamaikaaloa), who held the land through the remainder of his lifetime, and subsequently conveyed it to his heirs.

Most of Kalialinui, including the land that became the Waikamoi Preserve, has been held by Haleakala Ranch since that t...

Na Mele Aimoku

By: Hawaiian Historical Society

The Hawaiian Language Reprint Series was established by the Hawaiian Historical Society to make available to students and scholars books that were printed in the Hawaiian language during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Most have long been out of print, and access to surviving editions is generally limited to libraries and private collections. We hope that making these texts accessible will foster the use and appreciation of the Hawaiian language, encourage the buildin...

روح رابعة العدوية الصوفية : مقال, Volume مقالات: مقال

By: Dr. ناجي يوسف

وعلیه فإنه بالضرورة بما كان أن یدرس القادة والقسوس والخدام والمسؤلون الرسمیون والروحیون صفات هذا الروح وطرق تلونه بألوان وأشكال مختلفة حتى یتمكن من السیطرة علیهم وجرهم إلى ما هو غیر كتابي، بل وفي بعض الأوقات شیطاني، ولعل أهم صفات هذا الروح الشریر "روح رابعة العدویة الصوفیة" الواجب دراستها، وما یجب التنبیه إلیه والتركیز علیه، فیما یتعلق بخطورة التعامل مع هذا الروح هو:

٢- الصفة الثانیة من صفات "روح رابعة العدویة الصوفیة" إنه روح یركز كل التركیز على الله وأسمائه وصفاته ویتجاهل كل التجاهل ذكر اسم المسیح كالله الظاهر في الجسد، فلم أجد بیت شعر واحدًا من أشعار الصوفیین، على اختلاف أنواعهم وأعمارهم وثقافاتهم یتحدث عن حقیقة المسیح كالله الظاهر في الجسد، وعلى رأسهم رابعة العدویة، فحقیقة الله المتجسد في جسد المسیح بالنسبة لنا كمسیحیین، أو حتى كمجرد فكرة بالنسبة لهم كصوفیین لم تذكر أبدًا في كتاباتهم أو أشعارهم، بالرغم من أن هذه الحقیقة كانت ...

The Victorian hat of gentlemen, primarily during the high tailoring era of the 19th century; but why here? My grandfather who worked in Wilson’s administration in 1920 had one that my dad inherited. I recalled the interlocutions of the hair as it streamed around the funneled stack. I think my Dad said the hat material was dawned with Felted beaver skin. Again, wh...

A great book on Joan Ocean's experiences with Dolphin consciousness, exploring future realities and possibilities that arise with the symbiotically intertwined connection between Dolphin and Human.

"Over the years, as my contacts with dolphins increased, I found. this definition to be an apt description of our interactions with each other. Being with dolphins and whales in any possible intimate circumstances led to a blending of feelings and ideas that produced new mind-sets, new ways of understanding life, new projects that were stimulated by art and an appreciation of beauty and nature." - p26

From Here to Forever

By: Ellen Gould White

For millennia, the powers of good and evil have clashed on the battlefield for the loyalties of men. In the great controversy, at stake are not only individual freedoms, liberty of conscience and freedom of worship, but also fulfillment of Bible prophecy and truth. From eternity past to significant historical moments such as the reformation, the enlightenment and the great awakening, several champions bravely take their stand for a cause greater than themselves. Chequere...

Lucifer might have remained in favor with God, beloved and honored by all the angelic host, exercising his noble powers to bless others and to glorify his Maker. Little by little, Lucifer came to indulge a desire for self-exaltation. Instead of seeking to make God supreme in the affections and allegiance of His creatures, it was Lucifer’s endeavor to win their service and homage to himself. And coveting the honor which the infinite Father had bestowed upon His Son, this ...
