All enlightened beings, most founders of religions and many renowned scientists knew and understood the six principles of enlightenment. These universal truths have been written about, taught and discussed for thousands of years yet remain shrouded in mystery and misinterpretation. This book seeks to remove that shroud.

The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life is an intellectual and spiritual work that explains the six significant universal truths woven throughout science, religion and philosophy. These principles draw upon thousands of years of wisdom and are presented in a concise, accessible format. Each principle is defined and has an explanation on its application to life; they are further supported by quotes of wisdom from enlightened beings, philosophers, artists and scientists like Buddha, Albert Einstein, Rumi, Stephen Hawking and Jesus. Understanding the six principles then unlocks the meaning of life which is explained in the final chapter.

The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life AuthorAbout the Author:
Author Russell Anthony Gibbs is a philosopher and spiritual seeker on a quest for enlightenment. His research into Bahaism, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Sufism and Taoism has greatly influenced his spiritual and philosophical perspective. He was also profoundly influenced by the information from two channeled entities, Seth and Abraham. In addition to religion and philosophy, he has incorporated quantum mechanics, physics and psychology and studied the works of Albert Einstein, Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud and Stephen Hawking.

Russell’s communication style is concise, intense and deep. He would rather express wisdom in brief, powerful quotes and concise paragraphs than complicated, long-winded explanations. Espresso Wisdom is short, strong, rich insight. Like espresso coffee, it is an intense jolt of enlightenment. Enlightenment is an awakening, and Espresso Wisdom is meant to help jumpstart you on your journey.

Biography/Spirituality – Blue Skies Buddha

Blue Skies BuddhaBlue Skies Buddha
By Liz Lewinson
Publisher: Mystic-Buddha Publishing House
Published: September 2015
ISBN: 978-0982050576
Pages: 382
Genre: Biography, Religion, Buddhism

This acclaimed biography of the early teaching years of Rama ‐ Dr. Frederick Lenz (1950 ‐ 1998) highlights the new age spiritual renaissance of the 1970s and 80s and the founding of an original, deep‐rooted movement of American Buddhism. Readers take part in a free-spirited adventure as they witness a wild, sports jock teenager transform into an iconoclastic, innovative spiritual teacher. For Frederick Lenz, boundary breaking was de rigueur as witnessed and reported by the 100+ students and colleagues interviewed by author Liz Lewinson. Meditation, the empowerment of women, and Buddhist wisdom form the core of Dr. Lenz’s teachings, which he shared and honed with boundless enthusiasm. He encountered opposition, of course, but he kept his priorities straight. When he visited Nepal at age 19, he encountered an aged monk who informed him he was a lineage bearer. He was to revive and re‐establish an ancient school of enlightenment. He was to find his many past life students and help them achieve joyous enlightenment in this life or at least set them securely on the path. He was to do this in the West, using Western means. In the East, centuries‐old traditions maintain meditative pathways to enlightenment. In the West, facing a blank canvas, Dr. Lenz found new ways to build mental and meditative prowess through careers such as computer science, visits to American “places of power,” knowledge about real gender equilibrium (not monastic), movies, music, and dance. He taught these skills to American students and observed their success. Whether you are one of Rama’s past life students (or not!), reading this fast-paced biography will bring you new realizations and freedom, and ground you in the tenets of American Buddhism.

Recent Praise for Blue Skies Buddha
“This fascinating biography captures the wisdom of a genuine, compelling teacher who combined absolute miracles with humor, fun and adventure. When you read this fast-paced book, you feel you are there, learning and transforming. This is an original and exciting read.” — Lynn Andrews, Author of The Medicine Woman Series.

“This book presents an honest look into one of the most intriguing and controversial spiritual movements of the 80’s and 90’s. Rama was a very unconventional teacher and his teaching often caused people to rethink their basic assumptions on spirituality. In a way, he reminded me of my other idols of our age – Bruce Lee, Michael Jackson and Steve Jobs. They were all not only filled with crazy passions about their lives, but were so unconventional in their approaches that they caused major disruptions in traditional values. They were people who believed in themselves, walked their own paths and did not compromise.” —Francis Wang

Along with her study of Buddhism and meditation, Liz manages complex technology programs for global firms.  During the 15 years she spent researching Blue Skies Buddha, she increasingly broadened her understanding and appreciation of Buddhism for the West.

Spiritual Memoir – Unconditional

Based on the true story of a Metanoia
By Maitri May
Published: February 2015
ISBN: 978-1505523096
Pages: 348
Genre: Memoir, spiritual, self-help, non-fiction

The brain is a malleable, transformable and improved body. Neuroplasticity is learning new, complex, difficult tasks because that is what forces us to exercise mental muscles.

The main character realizes that in order to change her life, she has to train her brain by changing activities and learning new tasks, so her brain becomes more resilient and able to re-educate it.

Martha is mistreated in her family but she survives her childhood thanks to her best friend, Matthew, and in her teenage she finds out who actually is that friend full of wisdom and knowledge. She follows her dreams in a catholic mission in Mexico and with Mother Theresa in India, but she doesn’t accept the mentality there and finds a different path.

She knows there’s more in life than doing the same things like all the others. It’s just about the essential wisdom of listening to our inner self and following our dreams, even though it takes long time because still it’s difficult to erase the imprints engraved in our brains since childhood. From her experiences in life, she learns about friendship, relationships, education, work, money, as well as faith, intuition, inner self, psychic phenomena and past lives. One should take risks, daring to do something even if people is always telling you not to.

But life was not always so spiritual as it seems and as with a coin, light can´t exist without a dark side. She did many good things in life but also not so good and always knew she had to “pay back” the curses she sent and all came together to make her have a serious accident and her life changed drastically.

Trained as Psychotherapist in the Naturopathy / Alternative area, as well as hypnotherapist and in parapsychology, she is currently working in Germany giving massages and as counselor, taking groups to do spiritual journeys, and does tarot cards readings and clairvoyance.
