Into The Mystic: A Story of Light, Love and Bodacious Spiritual Adventures

by Ethan Walker

In 1967 at the age of nineteen, Ethan was unsuspectingly catapulted from his self-imposed, fortress of atheism to swimming in the ocean of the Divine in one blinding, mind-melting flash of insight. He never looked back. This is the story of a lifetime of spiritual pursuit. From hippies and the cultural revolution to the Rosicrucians to the I Am School to the Summit Lighthouse to Self-inquiry (non-duality) to love and devotion – bhakti – with priceless guidance from his guru Amma beginning in 1988. This is one man’s journey, spanning more than fifty years, through the brambles and the thickets; through the ancient halls of mystery, the pure emptiness of being and into the bliss of the Divine Light. This is a story of love, love and more love; a transfiguration from mind to Heart.

Synchronesia: A Depressing Existential Novel

by Oli Anderson

‘Synchronesia’ is an experimental satire about a melancholic and passive protagonist in a situation that demands great activity. It is a philosophical exploration of the differences between meaningless chance and potent coincidence.

A kind of dystopian Catcher in the Rye, the novel follows our unnamed protagonist as he saunters about a crumbling city looking for meaning, purpose, and the fabled ‘Big Man Upstairs’.

‘Synchronesia’ is a magically realistic portrait of the alienation of modern life and the quest for purpose in a world without anything to believe in but the constant promise of a panacea.

A melancholic, melodramatic satire of the modern condition, Synchronesia will both delight, amuse, and depress you.

Meditations: Deeply Embedded: Cordell Richards

by Cordell Richards

What if you could sit down with your soulâ??face-to-face with your accumulative wisdomâ??and have a philosophical discussion on the nature of Nature? “Deeply Embedded” is a dualistic discourse on the inherent likeness of the universe and human brain and the very essence of God Himself.

Written in meditative format like that of Marcus Aurelius’ The Meditations, building upon the philosophies of Spinoza and Descartes to further understand the whole of reality, “Deeply Embedded” is a lesson in Hegel’s dialectic processâ??a conceptual tool that forever expands human knowledge in order to reveal Absolute Truth.

[Philosophical excerpts from Richards’ novella Similar Truths]



A Treatise of Human Nature

by David Hume

A Treatise of Human Nature (1739-40), David Hume’s comprehensive attempt to base philosophy on a new, observationally grounded study of human nature, is one of the most important texts in Western philosophy. It is also the focal point of current attempts to understand 18th-century philosophy. The Treatise first explains how we form such concepts as cause and effect, external existence, and personal identity, and to form compelling but unconfirmable beliefs in the entities represented by these concepts. It then offers a novel account of the passions, explains freedom and necessity as they apply to human choices and actions, and concludes with detailed explanations of how we distinguish between virtue and vice and of the different kinds of virtue. Hume’s Abstract of the Treatise, also included in the volume, outlines his â??chief argument’ regarding our conception of, and belief in, cause and effect.



A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge

by George Berkeley

George Berkeley was an Irish Philosopher who is best known for putting forward the idea of subjective idealism. “A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge” is one of Berkeley’s best known works and in it Berkeley expounds upon this idea of subjective idealism, which in other words is the idea that all of reality, as far as humans are concerned, is simply a construct of the way our brains perceive and according to Berkeley no other sense of reality matters beyond that which we perceive.



The Book of Templates (A word of Encouragement.)

by Black-Sheep M.A.D.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, and try again, goes the saying.
This proverbial view is not simplistic, but is both an endorsement and encouragement for you to see whatever task you have at hand through to the very end.
It did not say you would not stumble or fail a few times, or you would not be adversely affected by circumstances as you walk the road to your success, it only asks that you have sticktoittiveness, and profound will and drive to accomplish your endeavours.
Believe that you can. Believe that you will. Accept that â??No’ is not an answer –
â??Yes’ is the only feed to your success.
The Book of Templates (A word of Encouragement.), encourages you to press on. You should, you have nothing to lose, and so much to gain. Think on these things.
Loose yourself from fear – hold onto life, and establish yourself.
