Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one. In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are and learn to live and breathe freely.

This is my third Tolle read. And although some lessons have been repeated, they give new insight to those 'same old chestnuts', that I obviously had not learned the first time round. I had however questioned the certainty of "the purpose of the universe is..." Check it out.

In Radical Honesty, Dr. Blanton coaches us on how to have lives that work, how to have relationships that are alive and passionate, and how to create intimacy where none exists. As we have been taught by the philosophical and spiritual sources of our culture for thousands of years, from Plato to Nietzsche, from the Bible to Emerson, the truth shall set you free.

It has hit me like a freight train from first listen and I am still examining the debris. Skeletons, suppressed patterns, childhood memories, past and current love affairs - all frying around like a cloud of fascinating dark matter around a supernova. And what fun it is to look into all that... New star, or soul if you prefer, born is what I feel like. Listen and give this book to anyone who matters in your life. THANK YOU BRAD BLANTON!

This book if full of excellent advice on how to live life well, whether you got ADHD diagnosis or not. It is also very helpful in opening eyes to how many people around us behave in odd ways, what we can do or sometimes not do about it. I am in the wondrous world of music and 'normal' people are rather unusual. So this was just perfect listen.

Having listened to a few talks and books by Alan Watts, I initially felt this one was a little too 'crammed' - not enough time to think about things. But one can always make a bookmark or pause. It's growing on me.

Life is the ultimate game of hide and seek... and the good news is that you're it! With the combination of playful irreverence and penetrating insight that made him a legend in Western philosophy, Alan Watts investigates the surprisingly liberating concept of "the universe as play" found at the heart of Hinduism, Zen, and other wisdom traditions.

The Scavenger species are circling. It is, truly, the End Days for the Gzilt civilization. An ancient people, organized on military principles and yet almost perversely peaceful, the Gzilt helped set up the Culture 10,000 years earlier and were very nearly one of its founding societies, deciding not to join only at the last moment. Now they've made the collective decision to follow the well-trodden path of millions of other civilizations: They are going to Sublime, elevating themselves to a new and almost infinitely more rich and complex existence. Amid preparations though, the Regimental High Command is destroyed....

According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch - the world's only totally reliable guide to the future - the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea...The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, the Four Bikers of the apocalypse are revving up, and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not particularly looking forward to the coming rapture.

Excellent book. A very good introduction into the spiritual domain. However, I keep going back to it and every time discovering more and more depth.

Read very well, but I find the bell sounds between passages a little too loud - they startle me sometimes and ruin the flow.
