    "What a Spring board"

    For anybody interested in seeking the truth this recording is just wonderful. With a brief narration of 50 spiritual books it has really helped as some of my deepest beliefs aren't foolish, they are shared by others who have written books. I have purchase 3 of the 50 books since listening to this tape. Also, if you are a "cut to the chase" kind of person then this will blow you away.

  • Rebel Buddha: On the Road to Freedom

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 21 mins)
    • By Dzogchen Ponlop
    • Narrated By Jonathan Davis, Dzogchen Ponlop
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    There's a rebel within you. It's the part of you that already knows how to break free of fear and unhappiness. This rebel is the voice of your own awakened mind. It's your rebel buddha - the sharp, clear intelligence that resists the status quo. It wakes you up from the sleepy acceptance of your day-to-day reality and shows you the power of your enlightened nature. It's the vibrant, insightful energy that compels you to seek the truth.

    Glenn says: "Buddhism for the Western World"
    "Spoken in Today's English"

    A wonderful book that expresses the teachings of the Buddha in a way that us mere mortals can understand. The book uses 'today's language' it is not full of terms that are foreign that can belittle the reader unlike a number of books about Buddha that I have read. The meditation examples are also excellent and have been a real help for me. The speed is great, the narration is excellent, I couldn't recomment the experience highly enough.

  • Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age

    • ABRIDGED (4 hrs and 57 mins)
    • By Gregg Braden
    • Narrated By Gregg Braden

    In his latest work, former senior computer systems designer and bestselling author Gregg Braden merges these ancient and modern world views into a powerful new model of time. Marrying the modern laws of fractal patterns to the ancient concept of cycles, he demonstrates how everything from the war and peace between nations to our most joyous relationships and personal crises are the returning patterns of our past.

    Roy says: "Food for Thought"
    "Amazing Perspective"

    I love the way Gregg thinks. He is way outside the box. Gregg is converging science with religion with spirituality with cosmology with ancient philosophy and defining core truths. Gregg does this in a completely non-judgemental way.
    The material can get a bit dry as Gregg goes into too much detail but at least you are not left wondering what he is talking about.

    I have just read his book "The Isaiah Effect" it is brilliant.

    I will be looking to hear / read more of Gregg's work as it has helped me enourmously in answering my questions about "life, the universe & everything".

  • The Shack

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 31 mins)
    • By Wm. Paul Young
    • Narrated By Roger Mueller

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Renato says: "much more than I expected"
    "So beautiful yet so closed minded"

    A beautiful story 5 out of 5.
    Wonderful image of God 5 out of 5.
    Die hard theology alienating 2/3rd of the planet's population 0 out of 5.
    The problem I have with all the Abraham based religions is that each of them needs to be right and everybody else needs to be wrong. Why can't we all be right if our beliefs are based on love and serving others. The wonderful imagery of God along makes this book worth a read.

  • The Eye of the Prophet

    • ABRIDGED (1 hr and 29 mins)
    • By Kahlil Gibran
    • Narrated By Johnny Cash

    In his writings, Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran weaves Christian, Moslem, and Buddhist ideals into a spiritual tapestry that transcends cultural barriers. This collection of his lesser-known writings reveals the author's insights on youth, love, marriage, and truth, and delves into nationalism, religion, and spiritual growth.

    Krykie says: "Yes, it is that Johnny Cash"
    "A Wonderful Perspective"

    Firstly, Johnny Cash is a wonderful narrator.
    This book is similar in structure to "The Prophet". The author gives us a unique view of his feelings about specific topics. I find myself quoting him. eg Comfort - it enters the house a guest, soon becomes the host, and then the master..... very hard hitting stuff. This is a beautiful listen that you will revisit over and over again.

  • The Third Jesus: The Christ We Cannot Ignore

    • ABRIDGED (9 hrs and 17 mins)
    • By Deepak Chopra
    • Narrated By Shishir Kurup

    Who is Jesus Christ? In The Third Jesus, best-selling author and spiritual leader Deepak Chopra provides an answer to this question that is both a challenge to current systems of belief and a fresh perspective on what Jesus can teach us all, regardless of our religious background. There is not one Jesus, Chopra explains, but three.

    Ray says: "Practical answers to the Hard Questions"
    "Practical answers to the Hard Questions"

    I am a Christian. I have been all my life. Why do I struggle so hard to live by Jesus's word? Jesus said "Remove the log from your own eye before you remove the splinter from your neighbours". At last a guide to help me remove the log from my eye. A must for any person that seeks the truth and for any Christian who seeks real answers not rhetric.

  • The Prophet

    • UNABRIDGED (1 hr and 22 mins)
    • By Kahlil Gibran
    • Narrated By Paul Sparer
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Writer, artist and philosopher Kahlil Gibran considered The Prophet to be his greatest achievement. First published in 1923, this collection of poetic essays on life and the human condition has been translated into more than 20 languages, and has become one of the beloved classics of our time. Cherished by millions, the universally inspiring words of The Prophet are here magnificently read aloud.

    Nolan P. Clark says: "Beautiful"
    "Timeless Wisdom"

    This needs to be listened to many times as you will hear something new with every listen. Almost allows you to step out of life and be an observer. Very powerful, very thought provoking, very beautiful.

  • Autobiography of a Yogi

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 36 mins)
    • By Paramahansa Yogananda
    • Narrated By Ben Kingsley

    When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

    Peter A. says: "One of the finest books on Spirituality ever"
    "If you only read one book about spirituality"

    This book has been my constant driving companion for 3 weeks. I have enjoyed peak hour traffic jams. I have learnt alot about Christianity (all positive) and Hindu understandings. Some parts of the bible are explained so beautifully. This book is a love story, a love of the creator for the created. God continues to love us unconditionally. He sure is a sucker for punishment.

  • Gateways to Now

    • UNABRIDGED (2 hrs and 2 mins)
    • By Eckhart Tolle
    • Narrated By Eckhart Tolle

    In this original audiobook, bestselling author Eckhart Tolle continues to teach us how to let go of the past and future to live in the now. Tolle urges us to shed our mind-based sense of self, enter the portals of the eternal present, and live vividly in the present moment.

    Ray says: "Sieze the Day"
    "Sieze the Day"

    A very abridged version of the wonderful book "The Power of Now". This book talks only of the "Gateways to Now" which is great if you have read the book "The Power of Now", if you haven't then this summary may lack context. It is practical & will provide ideas it just feels a little like a "shag on a rock". If you have read "The Power of Now" then this is a great refresher.

  • Divine Guidance: How to Have a Dialogue with God and Your Guardian Angels

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs and 26 mins)
    • By Doreen Virtue
    • Narrated By Doreen Virtue

    Anyone can answer everyday life questions by acknowledging and trusting in what has been called their inner voice, the voice of their guardian angel, or God. Going beyond the central messages in the enormously popular Conversations With God and The Messenger, Dr. Doreen Virtue, a best-selling author with over a half-million copies of her books in print, shows that we are all equally gifted in our ability and potential to communicate with God and the angels.

    Colin says: "Great Book"
    "Passion & Substance"

    Don't you love to talk to people that are experts in their field and passionate about it without being arrogant? Doreen writes as a person in love with what she does and with a burning desire to share her knowledge with the world. This book has practical application, is easy to understand, and a joyful journey.
