I step inside the yellow tracks with red roses
Only be shot down with bruises,
Until I saw,
They were more like stained teeth than blossoms.
Hopping in and out of merry go rounds
To find perspective,
Ever searching for a fuller picture
While it fades in my hands like a photograph.
Yet smiles and joy and glee ensues
The ever loving sadness.
Meeting so many of these Petals, one day to be closed
Breathing as a Flower,
Simply happy to have ever opened.

Constant thoughts, constant distractions; wired on adrenaline. Some of us are driven to madness by the constant dopamine rush, the need for more. Alan Watts brings us a remedy to that via trains of thought like no other.
A man gifted with his words, the likes of which the world has never seen before: Alan brings us a refreshing perspective on the nature of life, the universe, and everything in his own signature humorous manner..
A small book, it could easily be read in a day. However Alan’s words will undoubtedly take you to places that you have never been before. Revelation after revelation will take time to digest, and there is no better man to take on that journey than Mr Watts himself.

We all have a voice. We use it every day to communicate ourselves, to get things done, to leave our mark upon the world. Because it is just that: uniquely ours. Every single voice is the unique expression of that individual soul, and because of that it is very personal to us.
So… Why not learn how to use it properly?
This book details, through 99 separate exercises, how to effectively understand and utilise your voice’s capacity for full expression, in a variety of contexts. Whether you’re a singer, an actor, a corporate exec, or just someone looking to sound more powerful, this book has got you covered.
In a day an age where we use our voices almost excessively throughout the day, it has never been more beneficial to learn how to use it effectively.

Written by George Samuel Clason. Based in the Persian city of Babylon: This book tells entertaining parables full of ancient knowledge as to the psychological secrets of accumulating and managing wealth; and it’s wisdom spreads to far more than just economic and material wealth.
In equal parts entertaining and informative, this book is recommended by multiple contemporary economic giants such as Warren Buffet and Forbes Magazine.
In it’s simplicity lies complexity, for it lays out through it’s stories the underlying principles behind the secrets of wealth vs poverty. One can also take a philosophy as to how to manage oneself.
An entry from wikipedia exponents: ‘George S. Clason here gives a historical overview of Babylon, noting that although “its very name conjures visions of wealth and splendor” that the city itself was located next to the EuphratesRiver “in a flat, arid valley. It had no forests, no mines–not even stone for building. It was not even located upon a natural trade-route. The rainfall was insufficient to raise crops. Babylon is an outstanding example of man’s ability to achieve great objectives, using whatever means are at his disposal. All of the resources supporting this large city were man-developed. All of its riches were man-made.” ‘
A small, but indispensable classic. Definitely worth a read for anyone interested in the principles behind wealth in all of it’s forms.
