The Evil And The Fear
The Evil And The Fear
by Gary Bonn
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.87

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 4 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Evil And The Fear (Paperback)
I didn't want to break the flow of the story so I was late for everything! Had to make a day free of commitments to finish it. :-) Amazing vision, great story too. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that it has a cult following...

More power to your pen Gary.


The Dalai Lama's Book of Wisdom
The Dalai Lama's Book of Wisdom

3.0 out of 5 stars Small and challenging, 5 Oct 2011

Yes, it's a very small publication; a booklet really.
Its contents try to bring Buddhist understanding to our western culture so inevitably there lots of challenges to our understanding of love and to our ego-centric approach to life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Small but well formed, 5 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The booklet contains some good basic advice based on Buddhist ideas on compassion (i.e. it is given without wanting anything in return and it is given to everyone equally). This contradicts what most westerners believe about love and compassion (i.e. it is given with strings attached and to a very few selected people). So, it's a challenge.
Physically, it's disappointingly small, but that's expectations for you.


This Light in Oneself: True Meditation
This Light in Oneself: True Meditation

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously good, 22 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a book for those who want to play with meditation. This approach to meditation is very challenging, demanding a complete review of who we are and what we can be. It's more of an approach to life.

The style and vocabulary are a little awkward but the message is firm and clear. As usual with these collections of speeches, there's a great deal of repitition but in some cases this is good as it helps to clarify his definitions and advice.

I found it valuable.

5.0 out of 5 stars More gems from Osho, 8 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very useful part in the collection of Osho's Lifestyle guides. If you want to step outside the boundaries of a comfortable, safe and boring existence and feel alive again, this guide should help you. It will give you the confidence to wander out of the "plastic garden" and into the wonderful wilderness of real life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fritz is still cool, 8 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fritz The Cat [1972] [DVD] (DVD)
This is a good fun look at "hippy culture". Many 60s stereotypes are included. The main charater bungles his way from one lay to another via brushes with drugs, police and black culture. It is still relevant today as each generation questions the values of their parents.

This review is from: Górecki: Symphony No.3 (Audio CD)
Incredible piece of music. Always takes me to a wonderful place then sets me back down in the real world again feeling nurtured and content. This production is good although I haven't compared it to any others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of The Steamie, 7 Mar 2010

Nostalgic look back at life in old Glasgow (1940s to 50s?). The interplay of characters is engaging. Beautifully acted and well directed. Southerners may need English subtitles!

Such potential, such a miss. The plot has all sorts of opportunities for the film to excel and they are all missed. The acting is fair, given the direction and the script.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Osho's Love, Freedom, Aloneness, 7 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another excellent work from Osho's lips. OK, there are the usual tirades against religion and society, plus a little exaggeration, humour and teasing but the guidance and advice are well founded. His views on Love and Freedom are bound to trigger interesting debates. The section on Aloneness is very clearly delivered, a very helpful guide to enlightenment through the inward journey. I highly recommend this book.
