275 pages. This is a book to open your eyes. It is a book to make you think, but it will not preach to you. This is a book about children, and therefore about everyone, for children are life. When you become a parent, where do you get your information about how to raise children, and, more importantly, what to do when things go wrong? Parents, friends, neighbours - their advice may be well meant, but it may also be dead wrong. Barbara Holborow, a high-profile former Children’s Court magistrate, has looked at the world of children. She has had to analyse and judge children and those associated with them. She knows how they love and react, how they are abused and used, how they use and abuse. Cliff Neville is a professional communicator, who has seen life in many parts of the world, and Nola Webb, a lawyer, professional researcher and grandmother, has made an academic and painstaking study of kids. Together they have collaborated to create a book to give you food for thought. Kids is full of real life stories, wisdom and experience. It will help you grow with your children, enjoy them and love them, but at the same time it will add to your ability to be a role model for these very special people.

Meeting Life;, Krishnamurti, J.
11 Krishnamurti, J. Meeting Life;
UK Penguin 1991 0140193138 / 9780140193138 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
228 pages. Our problems are not solved by trying to solve them. So states Krishnamurti in the last teachings before his death in 1986. Rather, he continues, when we do no more than observe them with a mind unruffled by thoughts either of solution or escape, they dissolve. To gaze upon them as one might ‘a precious jewel, exquisitely handcrafted’ leads in fact to ‘total release from that which has caused pain’. In striving for resolution, however, we will only add to the complexity of any problem. If we can remove ourselves from the struggle and shed our intrusive egotism, then sorrow dies - and love is born. Meeting Life suggests that we go about this most effectively when we let go of everything we know and purport to be, and meditate - which entails no more than dropping our hurts, fears, anxiety, loneliness, despair and sorrow on the spot. ‘That is the foundation, that is the first step, and the first step,’ Krishnamurti insists, ‘is the last step.’ Just one of the questions with which this collection of talks confronts the reader is: Are you brave enough to take this vital step? Jiddu Krishnamurti was a philosopher, speaker and writer. He was concerned with psychological revolution, the nature of mind, meditation, inquiry, human relationships, and bringing about radical change in society. Moderate wear in the cover.

287 pages. Drawn from the late 19th to the early 20th centuries, all the stories in this collection in some Way capture the spirit of the young Australian nation. Some are humorous, others stark, even horrifying, but all are entertaining - and in some Way add to the picture of Australia’s gradually emerging national character. From Steele Rudd’s humorous Dad and Dave stories and Barbara Baynton’s stark tales to Henry LaWson’s brilliant depictions of shearers, swaggies, selectors, drovers - and their wives - these stories conjure up both the hardship and the poignancy of life in old Australia, bringing both the land and its people vividly to life. These classic short stories should be compulsory reading for all Australians.

170 pages. Written for spiritual seekers who deal with unenlightened coworkers and inconsiderate bank tellers more often than Zen masters and Tibetan monks, this book demonstrates the practical side of Buddhism. Author Franz Metcalf shows how to weave simple vows, quick rethinks, instant relaxations, fast visualizations, and many other stripped-down Buddhist practices into every area of life. Individually, Metcalf's techniques work as quick fixes for specific dilemmas, but woven together, they gradually strengthen one's spiritual base when one day a habitual way of being has been quietly transformed. While not written to impress pure Buddhists, this book takes Buddhism seriously. Approachable sections on Buddhism's rich tradition and a sprinkling of quotes from ancient scripture and contemporary teachers connect the book's practices to the deeper wisdom underlying them. This books squarely focused on daily life, drawing out the most practical aspects of Buddhism.

Australia UQP 1981 0702216216 / 9780702216213 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
194 pages. The ingredients are rich and provocative for the murder mystery connoisseur. Add a few dashes from the obscure and concealed world of police corruption and homosexuality, and you have an exciting blend of intrigue and realism to make a superb crime novel which also touches pertinent social issues. Roger Raftery's The Pink Triangle (named after the pink triangle branded on homosexuals by the Nazis) presents a unique but very credible plot. A gallery of fascinating characters is brought unerringly together through a web created by Raftery's penchant for expose. The reader will be just as puzzled as Raftery's sleuth, Duane Dooley, at the many possible suspects for murderer. The bizarre and exciting denouement will prove to be a very entertaining revelation. The novel's exciting, often witty style of narrative belongs to Roger Flaftery whose, in his own words, "proletarian bloodlines stretch back to infinity (potato famine Irish on one side, and East End dockworker English Protestants on the other)."

A Biblical Approach to Feng Shui & Divination, Rev Daniel Tong
18 Rev Daniel Tong A Biblical Approach to Feng Shui & Divination
U.S.A. Armour Pub 2006 9814138614 / 9789814138611 Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
166 pages including bibliography. In Feng Shui, the ornamental fountain in the home or office has more than aesthetic appeal. It brings prosperity. Likewise, south is good. And north is bad. So it is vital for the front entrance to face south. In a nutshell, the practice of Feng Shui - the words mean "wind" and "water" respectively - aims to help people live in harmony with their environment. The goal is to re-shape their destiny for a better life. How does it work? Is it for real? After painstaking research, Daniel Tong unearths the root of Feng Shui and Divination, and explores some tools of the trade, like the Bagua and Luo Pan. In the process, he stacks up the practices against biblical teaching, and strips off superstition to reveal the truth of God’s Word for all Christians. A good book for those who are unfamiliar with Feng Shui and related divination practices in Chinese culture. It is particularly useful for those Christians who do not read Chinese and need a guide to find their way through this complex minefield. A Biblical Approach to Feng Shui and Divination will help many who are confused and befuddled by the various claims made for such forms of divination. A graduate of Trinity Theological College, Singapore, Daniel Tong has been a priest of the Anglican Diocese of Singapore for some 12 years. Over the past decade, he has been teaching a course on Chinese cultural practices, whose contents have shaped his definitive book, A Biblical Approach to Chinese Traditions and Beliefs. His intention to add to the course a lesson on the increasingly popular practice of Feng Shui was the impetus for this new book. The father of three is currently Vicar of Chapel of Christ the Redeemer and Chaplain of St Hilda's Primary School. Crease in the back cover.
