Description : Where do we come from? Is there life after Death? If so, where? I think I figured it out. I will give you my version of the answers here in this book. In any event, you are the master of this life right here, right now. That’s all anyone knows for sure, this life on Earth in the physical realm. When I was a kid, they taught me to be a good, little Catholic boy. I was as brainwashed as anyone could be about religion but I gradually realized it was a crutch and a tool of oppression which doesn’t make it bad in and of itself. It just means that a lot of people use religion as a tool to control others through guilt, to gain trust, sexual favours, political power, etc. Aside from that, even if there is no God, religion serves a variety of pragmatic purposes. It gives us hope, comfort, inspiration and bonds us as communities and societies.
Description : Even though minimum wage has been discussed for many years and many countries have implemented it, some countries still have not. As such, it continues to attract attention because it is a real-life issue for the low wage workers. In this book, the issue is being discussed between a young man, Tom, who had conversations with two gurus, Dick and Harry. Guru Dick epitomizes someone from a worldly society who emphasized on the importance of money and power. Guru Harry epitomizes someone from a spiritual society who considers peace, love, joy and harmony are more important. May these discussions be beneficial to mankind!
Description : Have you met an engineering professor? Have you met an engineering professor who is deep into spirituality and writes spiritual books? I have, and he is me. I had worked as an engineering professor in a university in Singapore. I now write philosophical, self-help and spiritual books. For an engineering professor to become a spiritual author is unusual to say the least. Indeed, it is this unusualness that prompted me to write this book. Engineering and spirituality are often perceived as two ends of a spectrum, and it is. As engineering deals with the physical, and spirituality deals with the non-physical, there is actually tremendous synergy once they are combined. In this book, there are ten chapters in which I share my physical and spiritual journey. They are: (1) Study years, (2) Working years, (3) Academic years, (4) From engineering professor to spiritual author, (5) Care for the dying, (6) Being unemployed, (7) Return as consultant, (8) Into politics and socio-political writings, (9) Becoming a spiritual philosopher, and (10) Epilogue. You are invited to join me on this journey. I hope this sharing is beneficial to you. May your life be filled with peace, love, joy and harmony!

Description : Ever feel like your efforts to live a life of wisdom, honesty, and compassion are hijacked by, well, life? Take heart. Ezra Bayda has good news: life’s challenges aren’t obstacles to our path—they are the path. Understanding that liberates us to use every aspect of what life presents us with as a way to live with integrity and authenticity—and joy. In this, as in all his books, Ezra’s teaching is Zen made wonderfully practical, in a way that can apply to anyone’s life. Meditation is the foundation, but it doesn’t stop there. It’s about learning to take the practice of presence we cultivate in meditation to all the rest of our complicated lives. Doing that empowers us to navigate our journey with the integrity and authenticity that are what a satisfying life are all about.
