  • The charming Chinese philosopher Lin Yutang guides the reader who is accustomed to a passionate pace of life to enjoy the small, everyday gifts of life.  He talks lightly of the timeless wisdom of the East and conquers with his irresistible humor. The world is too serious, he thinks,  and that’s why it needs a wise and joyful philosophy. He encourages us to laugh at our own futility and be curious about life like a child.  With one eye closed and the other open, he sees the futility of everything around him and his own endeavors, yet retains enough sense of reality to understand that he has to try to go through life anyway.

  • A compilation of the author's observations for successful living - and who does not want a successful life? Our personal life goal posts may change but well-conceived principles to live by are still bound by personal and professional success. This is simple, commonsense wisdom - the sort that often gets lost in our increasingly complex lives. Recommending qualities such as tolerance and self knowledge as crucial tools for successful living, Morgan enlivens the mix with personal vision and becoming your 'own'positive self-fulfilled prophecy.
  • The Infernal of Infernals...The Fallen One...The Majesty of a Million Hells...the Dark Shadow...the Adversary...Lucifer...The Devil. A colloquy with the Prince of Darkness  - a sequence of tart, ironic and deadly serious dialogues between Archangel Michael and the Mover of the Underworld that undertakes to illuminate some of the central truths of man's existence by an imaginary exchange of letters - epistles barbed with arguments, parries, mutual insults and lofty debate. Lucifer brazenly proclaims  his infinitely durable, diabolical subtle means of corrupting and destroying mankind, while Michael quietly demonstrates the ways in which  God uses Satan's own ponderous, vicious and overambitious weight to topple him flat.
  • The Tarot is a form of fortune-telling, or predicting events that has been used for many centuries to provide guidance and help people understand the emotional issues influencing their lives. Simply Tarot will show you how Tarot can bring insight to personal and professional situations and how it can positively influence your life.  There are excellent illustrations of each of the 78 cards, their meanings, different layouts and a glossary of terms.
  • Come, those in search of initiation, into the ancient mysteries of the Druids...A grimoire that focuses on the magical elements of three mystical lessons told as tales to King Arthur by the wise Merlyn.  As new secrets are revealed from the sixteenth century  Book Of Pheryllt, so the seeker after knowledge may choose to undergo a vision quest beyond the confines of the everyday world, through the wisdom and magic of the Druids.
  • A good, sound commonsense book for the beginner to the ancient art of Tarot.  Apart from the chapters on the Major and Minor Arcana and the Suits, the cards and their meanings there is also all possible interpretations as well as excellent advice on what deck to buy and where to buy it; care of your Tarot cards; sample readings and card layouts. Fully illustrated in colour, the emphasis is on the positive aspects of the Tarot and how to use the cards as a tool for gaining self-knowledge while exploring present and future possibilities.
  • The book that inspired the TV series Philosophy:  A Guide To Happiness - and a book that takes the discipline of logic and mind back to its roots. Drawing inspiration from six of the finest minds in history - Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche - he addresses lack of money, unpopularity, the pain of love, inadequacy, anxiety and conformity.
  • Confronting and solving problems is a painful process which most of us attempt to avoid. Avoiding resolution results in greater pain and an inability to grow both mentally and spiritually. Drawing heavily on his own professional experience, Dr M. Scott Peck, a psychiatrist, suggests ways in which facing our difficulties - and suffering through the changes - can enable us to reach a higher level of self-understanding. He discusses the nature of loving relationships: how to distinguish dependency from love; how to become one's own person and how to be a more sensitive parent. This is a book that can show you how to embrace reality and yet achieve serenity and a richer existence.
  • Since Nostradamus' predictions first appeared in the sixteenth century, his reputation as the world's most renowned scholar and seer has grown and continues to grow. Many of his prophecies have come true with startling accuracy; the Great Fire of London, the rise of Hitler, the execution of Charles 1, the Vietnam war and more; others are more obscure and seem to have not yet been fulfilled. Cheetham is regarded as being the foremost authority on Nostradamus and made his prophecies her life work; continually re-reading, studying and reviewing, offering different possible interpretations of the hundreds of quatrains, all of which were written in code and in four different languages.
