Girl on Fire by Tony Parsons - Book Review

OMG Wow! Just wow!

This story felt so close to reality because events like this are sadly common place in this day and age.  On more than one occasion parts of the book gave me goose bumps, it certainly evoked an emotional response from me. 296 more words

GIRL ON FIRE . . . Between the covers

The story begins in a kind of deathly silence. A silence not brought about by the absence of noise, but by the inability of anyone to hear the screams of the dying, the crash of falling masonry, and the desperate and distant howl of emergency sirens. 682 more words


Neo-advaita myth: The 'me' is an energetic contraction

There are several problems with the teachings of what is called by its advocates ‘radical non-duality’, and by its detractors ‘neo-advaita’. Personally, I quite like these teachings, and ironically* I think they have great value to the apparent seeker of liberation, but there are some issues too, which if ironed out, in my view make the teachings more effective. 151 more words
