The Goddess of Mercy & The Dept. of Miracles, memoir, Arielle Gabriel, LULU BOOKS
The Goddess of Mercy & The Dept. of Miracles is a true life memoir unlike any other:
” I was born on a Monday. I was born with a caul. I was born to a handsome blue-eyed black-haired father & a beautiful green-eyed blond-haired mother.”
Have you ever wondered if good or bad deeds from other lives affect you in this life? Hundreds of millions of people around the world believe in karma, and reincarnation. The author of this memoir is a Buddhist who recalls her life in other centuries, and wonders how those lives in colonial America and in Victorian England among others affect her present life.
The author freely admits her spiritual struggles with flaws – such as crying too much, and pinching extra cream from Starbucks! You can relate on a human level to her. She wonders why she suffered major financial disaster in Hong Kong, the least forgiving of all major world cities of financial flops.
“After I suffered a Bernie Madoff financial defrauding, I left my oceanfront home and went to live in the Hong Kong International Airport for several months. Stranded, alone, and in a foreign country I commenced to write a book about my own life, as I studied the other homeless people living at one of the world’s largest airports. More than 100 of them, though the number shifts. The airport characters are surprisingly rich in variety, nationality, race, and religion, as befits a world class airport!
I began keeping a Daily Diary. Some days rich in colourful stories, other days dragged. So I also wrote about other things. Buddhism, and my belief that I would soon be saved from my Dickensian plight. My faith in miracles began even as a Canadian child, attending Sunday School at whichever mainstream Christian church we lived closest to.
Born to much good fortune in Canada – a middle class family, with a father who did much community work, and a caring, stay at home mother. Our ancestors came out from Britain over 100 years ago, going to the British Columbia, Ontario, the Mid West, and California. They married sideways into other cultures, as befits citizens of our democracies: Italians, Bulgarians, Germans, and lately First Nations, and Cantonese Chinese.
I travelled to Europe 10 times before I was 20 years old, thanks to Air Canada tickets from my father’s employment! Also to the Caribbean, and all over North America. Problems such as parental divorce in Montreal, and a car accident on the Lion’s Gate Bridge in Vancouver that caused me 76 months of excruciating pain – gave my life story some downs to be added to the earlier ups. With detachment I see the more interesting life stories for readers have these darknesses as well as luminosity, though I want to be reborn to a more blander, serene life if I am forced to incarnate again.
And with a feeling of isolation in Corporate Hong Kong, as a sort of fish out of water, I felt free to write in an innovative way about my oddball life story, so the memoir is a series of versatile articles:

THE CONTROVERSIAL CANADIAN THE WORLD IS TALKING ABOUT!
Layne Morris, USA Military, on the Trudeau award of 10,000,000 dollars to Al Qaida connected Omar Khadr: “I don’t see this as anything but treason. It’s something a traitor would do. As far as I am concerned, Prime Minister Trudeau should be charged.”
Justin Trudeau, on compassion for ISIS: Dec 2, 2017 – In Parliament…Trudeau confirmed that his government will “help them (Canadians in ISIS) let go of that terrorist ideology.” By allowing and funding “re-hab” treatment, a plan copied exactly from Sweden, he paves the way for ISIS to serve in both the national police and the military.
This controversial and daring new book tackles the Niagara Falls of news stories emanating from the Liberal Party of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the son of the deceased Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. (Trudeau is rumoured to be the love child of Fidel Castro: judge for yourself by the many photographs.)
Every chapter zings with endangerment to traditional Western democratic values, posing a threat to both the people of Canada and the people of the United States, and their centuries old friendship. New friends emerge influencing Trudeau, Iqra Khalid, Pakistani Muslim who contributed new Blasphemy Laws, with an emphasis on criticizing her own faith, and Maryam Monsef, an Iranian who lied on her immigration papers, and then sought to restructure electoral procedure dating back to 1867, the founding of Canada.
This New Canada should be examined by all free peoples.
For unknown to many, Trudeau began years before his election visiting Radical Islam events, associated with international speakers who favour more draconian laws in the countries that welcome them, in tune with their deep religious beliefs. Far from holding those new citizens wholly responsible, the author holds the Trudeau government responsible for alienating a huge majority of Canadians. American readers will note the chapters of special interest to them as well.
*$10,000,000 settlement paid out to Al Qaida connected Omar Khadr by Trudeau, for what he believed to be wrongful imprisonment by the American government.
*The San Bernardino shooters and how they connect to an Islamic school in Ontario, that recommends polygamy, and forbids cameras
*The Women’s March in Washington DC and how Chris Bittle, Trudeau associate, connects, while he condemns criticism of ISIS returning terrorists as racist!
*December 2017 vote of the entire Liberal Party of Canada to Welcome Back ISIS! including government aid such as “rehabilitation”
*Hypocritical treatment of women with women who object to lax attitudes on FGM, female genital mutilation, and honour killings also being called “racist”. Wife Beating booklets sold openly in Toronto, Dundas Square, by Islamic student groups
NOTE RE BOOK ORDERS: We are redoing our Pages at LULU.COM BOOKS, for this one book, thanks. Our previous books are listed at LULU.COM BOOKS already.
Insults To Many Other Faiths And Cultures!
*attacks on Jews doubled with first year of his reign, 2016
*huge friction with Christian groups, with abortions allowed up till 9 months
*bizarre rules for public schools, attacking the words mother and father
*breakdown of separation of church and state, favouring mostly one religion
*huge amount of Chinese Canadians blamed for a foul and non-existent attack on a little girl, and demonstrations all over Canada by the rightfully upset Chinese population
*Hindu Canadians ignored in their demands for accountability for the Air India bombings, and the government of India slighted for decades as a secondary concern
*the majority population of Sri Lanka upset as well, as Justin Trudeau honours only the revolutionary Tamil Tigers in his congratulatory speeches to the country of Sri Lanka
The Fraser Institute: “Trudeau….on track to increase federal debt by more than any other prime minister not burdened by a world war or recession.” He never held a steady job until by virtue of his family name, and movie star looks, won the top job.
Michelle Rempel, Twitter: “Trudeau is removing references to female genital mutilation as being a harmful practice from Canada’s Citizenship guide.” He is also upset by the phrase of Honour Killing, as he does not want to upset Islamic extremists who may follow such practices. He object early on to the use of the word barbaric, and sought to choke and muzzle free speech.
The Washington Post, USA: Mar 7, 2017 – “In fact, the Ontario motion didn’t even pretend to be about all forms of bigotry, referring solely to “hate-attacks, threats of violence and hate crimes against people of the Muslim faith.” And, of course … Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government is putting Muslim feelings above free speech.”
WE HAVE EDITED THIS BOOK, to allow the others around this issue to speak for themselves. The good news for readers who enjoy the high drama of global politics is that the book is a snappy, succinct, and urgent read for ALL Canadians who must talk out quickly. And for Americans as well who share a centuries old friendship with their Northern neighbors.
