4.0 out of 5 stars Is this the ultimate d&b album?, 27 April 2009
It's about time someone reviewed this album, that someone is me!

If you like a bit of d&b or are a d&b addict, you cannot go wrong with this collection. All bases are covered here, from old skool jungle tunes by Johnny L & the absolute classic Music Takes You from Blame (i'm having a Sterns flashback!) through to some more recent stuff from Hospital records, it's all here. The mid 90's chill sound is also covered courtesy of Omni Trio & Foul Play.

Jungle breaks, hard & dark tech-step & CD3 finishes with some big uplifting tunes! Over 3 & a half hours of top quality, irresistible drum & bass. For 4, it would be rude not to! Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your transformation awaits!, 7 July 2008
The current state of humanity is an outward reflection of the dysfunction that exists within the human mind, The EGO, the fictitious sense of self, the apparent duality, the delusion!

A New Earth will teach you about the mechanics and the structure of the ego in others and how to dissolve your own ego by present moment awareness. Once you have gone beyond your fictitious identity you no longer pollute your body with negative emotion, no longer contaminate those around you with negative energy and go beyond the main characteristics of the ego - fear and want.

You then participate in the unfolding of The New Earth. Essential reading for everyone, your transformation awaits!

4.0 out of 5 stars Too much funk for one person to take!, 5 Mar 2008
This review is from: Ghetto Funk Sessions (Audio CD)
After listening to this double CD pack crammed full of classics and lesser known gems I've come to the conclusion that I need help! The funk has finally hit the fan and I have become completely funked up!

5.0 out of 5 stars More spontaneous wisdom from Tolle., 27 Feb 2008
Becoming aware of space and silence where ever you are creates an inner space between your thoughts, an inner stillness. This inner stillness takes you beyond your thinking mind (ego) and reveals the un-manifested dimension where problems cease to exist and you always have everything you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars From Uganda with love!, 12 Dec 2007
Eight wonderfully written stories about three sisters growing up in Uganda during the aftermath of the Idi Amin dictatorship. Each story focuses on the different life experiences of Christine, Rosa and Patti from their own individual viewpoints. Many powerful emotions are manifested throughout the book.

The writer has clearly lived through these realities or experienced them at first hand. This is the harsh reality of real life in third world Uganda, it's been told as it is. I particularly found "First Kiss" and "A Thank-You Note" to be very moving. The latter is a letter from Rosa to her lover as they are both dying of AIDS.

Having spent three weeks in Kampala/Entebbe this year plus the fact that I have a dear Ugandan friend, I can really relate to the culture, scenery, food and language that is so brilliantly portrayed in this book. It's a wonderful read and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a link with Uganda or indeed to anyone who appreciates superb story telling.

Katonda wange!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hold on to the center., 1 Nov 2007
I can't judge this book good or bad, it's meaning is way beyond these polar opposites. Words are just signposts, they point somewhere else. I don't really care how close this translation is to the original text, I have found it to be very transformative, it has gem-like lucidity.

I purchased Stephen Mitchell's translation as it was recommended by Eckhart Tolle. Incidentally, I have found that by reading The Power Of Now first has made the Tao Te Ching resonate with much more power. Had I attempted it in reverse I think this book would have been quite meaningless.

4.0 out of 5 stars The martial art of communication!, 7 Oct 2007
Don't let the term Neuro Linguistic Programming put you off the idea of learning about this amazing subject. NLP is literally the martial art of communication and this book is a first class introduction.

Everyone can benefit from NLP, either in their career or personal life. NLP is actually a whole range of tools and mental processes that enable one to develop the skills for understanding people more clearly and also how to influence others. Some of the techniques in this book are extremely powerful, you will discover a lot about yourself as you learn!

The book is clearly written and avoids too much jargon. The authors also have a sense of humour!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily accessible transformative power!, 13 Sep 2007
This book is a stripped down version of The Power of Now, in more manageable chunks, if you like. It's easy to pick up if you have a spare moment. I would recommend buying this with The Power of Now as they compliment each other perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid debut!, 1 Aug 2007
This review is from: The 18th Day (Audio CD)
This debut album by Estelle is a real grower. Reflective and sometimes amusing lyrics combined with a sparkling production make for a very enjoyable listen. This is a quality R&B/Rap album and Estelle is not afraid to venture into new territory with tracks such as Change is Coming and Go Gone. There is some nice acoustic instrumentation which contrasts well to the more programmed synth backing.

Big up the UK R&B, Rap and Hip-Hop artists!
