  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Although this presentation was not what I would normally expect from a work of literature, that is exactly why I loved it.

Don't believe I missed the message of the book, as I am somewhat of a non-pc optomist, when I say...

Written with the intent of creating an entry-level report concerning the core principles of the Law of One and Confederation philosophy in general, this book takes the listener through a discussion of Law of One principles such as unity, free will, love, light, and polarity. It then works with the Confederation version of the concept that each person has an energy body with seven chakras. It discusses this concept and its implications for the seeker, chakra by chakra. It turns the player into a Player!

This audiobook uncovers the biggest scientific fraud of our age. It tells the fascinating and frequently astounding story of how the massive enterprise to restructure the genetic core of the world's food supply came into being, how it advanced by consistently violating the protocols of science, and how for more than three decades, hundreds of eminent biologists and esteemed institutions have systematically contorted the truth in order to conceal the unique risks of its products - and get them onto our dinner plates.

What can I say without anger tainting what should be the most glowing review I have ever written.
This is the most well written book I have ever had the privilege of being exposed to, yet it has troubled me like nothing else before.
I do not possess the articulate mind, the gilded tongue, or the proficient vocabulary to express the level of impact this book has had on my soul.
Every adult human capable, should attempt to consume the wealth of revelation contain within this presentation. However, it should be done with caution, as the level of disclosure revealed herein is not for the troubled of spirit or faint of heart.
It WILL make you angry.
You will be horrified to learn that we (in the US and in many other geographic locations throughout the world) have literally forced, without our knowledge, to play a game of high stakes Russian Roulette, involving countless men, women, and children.
People need to be in prison, yet judges play dumb or are literally incompetent.
My heart is almost... Poisoned with sorrow and disdain.
The knowledge of the betrayal that this book reveals is catastrophic, and altogether damning of those complicit in these CRIMES against humanity.
The Author of this book, and those scientists and other persons who have stood against these crimes are heros of the highest order, and should be recipients of not only the Nobel Peace Prize, but honors from all the government of the world.
I personally hold Steven Druker, and those who stand with him in the highest esteem and consider them a heros without peer.

Thank You Sir.

Best-selling author and legendary conspiracy researcher Jim Marrs, who has investigated the recent financial crisis, the JFK assassination, and the national socialist takeover of America, now takes on his biggest subject: the history of mankind. Offering mind-blowing information that will radically alter the way we think about the world and our place in it, Marrs goes beyond the revelations of his classic Alien Agenda, interweaving science and authentic archaeological finds with provocative speculation to show how human civilization may have originated with nonhumans who visited earth eons ago.

What a satisfying treaty of a history that was to me, until now, lost in a quagmire of gray all too boring mist.

The Bhagavad Gita, "The Song of the Lord", is the best known of all the Indian scriptures, and Easwaran's reliable and accessible version has consistently been the best-selling translation. Easwaran's introduction places the Gita in its historical setting and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. Chapter introductions give clear explanations of key concepts in that chapter.

Since its release in 1949, The Hero with a Thousand Faces has influenced millions of readers by combining the insights of modern psychology with Joseph Campbell's revolutionary understanding of comparative mythology. In this book, Campbell outlines the Hero's Journey, a universal motif of adventure and transformation that runs through virtually all of the world's mythic traditions. He also explores the Cosmogonic Cycle, the mythic pattern of world creation and destruction.
