Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. The audiobook is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. Milk and Honey takes listeners through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.

I kind of feel like she’s an angry, hurt and bitter poet. Not much to the book itself other than WOMAN are oppressed and could empower each other. A few sexual fantasies thrown in and light on the love.

Overall, average.. But art is art.... it’s only interpreted.

At once a moving meditation and an empowering guide, More Together Than Alone is an compelling testament to the power of community and why it’s so essential in our lives, now more than ever. Mark Nepo draws from historical events, spiritual thought leaders, and the natural world to show how, in every generation, our tendency is to join together to accomplish our greatest achievements, from creating education to providing clean drinking water, and preserving the arts.

Every gay man at some point has fallen in love with his straight counterpart. These poems are a reflection of the longing, frustration, and humiliations of loving these men and the soul searching for understanding and acceptance of the impossible.

Sufism, the religious philosophy of Islam, is described in the oldest extant definition as "the apprehension of divine realities", and Mohammedan mystics are fond of calling themselves Ahl al-Haqq, the "followers of the real". In attempting to set forth their central doctrines, I shall draw on materials which I have collected during the last 20 years for a general history of Islamic mysticism - a subject so vast and many-sided that several large volumes would be required to do it anything like justice.

Parker’s irreverent, hilarious, and enchanting memoir gives you the incredible opportunity. Full of personal stories, whimsical how-tos, recipes, and beautiful handmade collages created by the author herself, You’re On an Airplane is a delight in every way.

This series of talks is on one of the most esoteric treatises in the world. It will show you the way to become more than the body and the way to bloom - how not to remain a seed but to become a golden flower. What, in India, they call the one thousand-petalled lotus, in China they call the golden flower. It is a symbol that represents perfection, totality. Moreover, the flower represents the actualization of the potential - the beauty, the grandeur, the splendor of being.

Powerful book! Love Osho and his lectures. I found this book to be extremely intense and very informative. He covers everything. However it was also very repetitive of some of his other work and at times could drag along. The lectures themselves had a redundancy to them and were very politically charged and biased. Like most spiritual leaders and activists, I found him to be have a great overall message but laden heavy with ego.

Standing up and using a page from a broken book he was buying for $2, he typed a poem without thinking, without planning, and without the ability to revise anything.

Folksy and fresh, endearing and affecting, Fried Green Here is the now-classic novel of two women in the 1980s; of gray-headed Mrs. Threadgoode telling her life story to Evelyn, who is in the sad slump of middle age. The tale she tells is also of two women - of the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend Ruth - who back in the thirties ran a little place in Whistle Stop, Alabama, a Southern kind of Cafe Wobegon offering good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder.

Long and slow cooked. I loved that it added to the movie but it was very difficult to follow. Extremely long and drawn out. It just fell very flat to me. I found it boring. I didn’t need the recipes at the end either. It could have been better.
