1 Drops of Being

Drops of Being

Catalin Manea | Self-Improvement

Rating:

This is an invitation. To transcendence. To letting go. To opening up. Beyond one’s own points of views, beyond one’s perspectives, beyond one’s knowledge, beyond one’s own self. Beyond everything that is personal. A rough journey, which is neither beautiful nor ugly. It just is. A journey to nowhere, that will not offer any reward. A journey that cannot add anything to one’s being. A journey of dissolution, not of enhancement. A journey that cannot be given any meaning and which cannot be embedded into any system, culture or religion. A journey with no meaning. In fact, all that will follow will not provide any objective meaning, for the simple reason that knowledge cannot decipher what cannot be known.

2 Life Champion

Life Champion

Buck Brennan | Humor

Rating:

Today the "woke" generation would probably say that this book is vulgar, crude, rude, racist, emasculating, homophobic, ignorant, insensitive, sarcastic, lewd, juvenile, sophomoric and even downright offensive. Back in the old days, when people still had a sense of humor, they would have simply said that it was funny. If you have a good sense of humor and you don't take life too seriously, you will probably like this book.

3 The Desert Surfer

The Desert Surfer

M. Thomas Champion | Humor

Rating:

Did I ask to be born? Did I ask to be middle class? Did I ask my girlfriend to introduce me to marijuana? Well, okay, maybe yes on that last one. But I did not ask to have the Mafia, a Mexican drug lord, an Amish hit man, and the Hollywood Screen Actor's Guild all trying to kill me while I smuggle two illegal aliens across the border with a 1,000 pounds of grass in my trunk. That just sort of happened. Karma, right?

4 The Greatest Teacher In The World!

The Greatest Teacher In The World!

Umar Saeed Iqbal | Self-Improvement

Rating:

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. If we’ve been fortunate, there was a teacher in our life who chose to believe in us even when the entire world wouldn’t. They focused on what we could become, instead of who we were at that point in time. Most importantly, they had an unshakable belief in our potential for personal greatness and the power of the human spirit. The Greatest Teacher in the World is a testament to their patience and persistence. For those of us who weren’t so fortunate, you will find comfort in knowing about a teacher that cares deeply about you. She believes in you more than you believe in yourself. In the lessons of the 63-year-old Professor Izmir, you will discover what it means to have a life of meaning and purpose.

A gargantuan comet hurtles through interstellar space on its elliptical trajectory towards an extinction-level impact with Earth. The Aliens have known about it for over 6000 years. Adam is unknowingly chosen, by the Aliens, for relocation as part of a grand plan to save the Earth's species from certain extinction. WORMWOOD is a re-edited compilation of 2023, 2023.2 and 2123.

18 Mystic Tattoos

Mystic Tattoos

David Ellinger | Sci-fi Fantasy

Mystic Tattoos is about a self-discovery, about our spiritual journey and lessons learned. It about finding oneself and growing in that self-discovery. It is an adventure into the mystic and the unknown. Being a Medium, I asked for Spiritual guidance and at the end of the book have given predictions for the next five years. So if you like Spiritual fantasy (and who doesn't,) I am sure that you will enjoy reading. The added plus are my psychic predictions for the next five year.
