Animal mind magic and the psychic power of the natural world - gives you the right to make choices.

She also has incredible success with plants, and has cleared insect infestations with the power of thought. Written in the intimate and conversational style of her previous books, this new examination of the power of the mind will be welcomed by both her devoted readers and anyone who has a desire to make our world a better place.
In Fear: Understanding and Accepting the Insecurities of Life, Osho takes the reader step by step over the range of what makes human beings afraid - from the reflexive fight or flight response to physical danger to the rational and irrational fears of the mind and its psychology. Only by bringing the light of understanding into fear's dark corners, he says, airing out closets and opening windows, and looking under the bed to see if a monster is really living there, can we begin to venture outside the boundaries of our comfort zone and learn to live with, and even enjoy, the fundamental insecurity of being alive. Fear ends with a series of meditation experiments designed to help readers experience a new relationship with fear and to begin to see fears not as stumbling blocks, but as stepping stones to greater self-awareness and trust.
"Why do naturally talented people frequently fail to reach their potential while other far less gifted individuals go on to achieve amazing things? The secret to outstanding achievement is not talent, but passionate persistence. In other words, grit.MacArthur Genius Award-winning psychologist Angela Duckworth shares fascinating new revelations about who succeeds in life and why. Based on her cutting-edge research, Duckworth shows how many people achieve remarkable things not just by relying on innate natural talent, but by practising what she calls grit. She then offers a Grit Formula to help anyone to become more gritty, focusing on six key factors: hope, effort, precision, passion, ritual and prioritisation. She reveals:- Why people who test high for talent often fail to achieve their potential, and why people who do not test high for talent often ""overachieve"" what others expect them to do- How grit can be learned, whatever your IQ or circumstances- Why stubbornness is a key characteristic of gritty people- When to be stubborn and when giving up is the grittiest thing you can do- How gritty people found their passion, and you can find yours- How gritty experts practise, and how you can do the same in your own life- What the people who care about you can do to boost your grit when you need it most- How grit is cultivated in the highest-performing sports teams, companies and schoolsLeaping past clichés such as 'success is all about hard work', Grit offers a fresh and motivating way to climb to heights far beyond what natural talent would predict."

INTUITION: All people have a natural capacity for intuition, but many times social conditioning and formal education works against it. People are taught to ignore their instincts rather than to understand and use them as a foundation for individual growth and development - and in the process they undermine the very roots of the innate wisdom that is meant to flower into intuition. This book provides many specific exercises and meditations designed to nourish and support each individual's natural intuitive gifts.

16 MILLION COPIES SOLD 'A book to read, to cherish, to debate, and one that will ultimately keep the memories of the victims alive' John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas A prominent Viennese psychiatrist before the war, Viktor Frankl was uniquely able to observe the way that both he and others in Auschwitz coped (or didn't) with the experience. He noticed that it was the men who comforted others and who gave away their last piece of bread who survived the longest - and who offered proof that everything can be taken away from us except the ability to choose our attitude in any given set of circumstances. The sort of person the concentration camp prisoner became was the result of an inner decision and not of camp influences alone. Frankl came to believe man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. This outstanding work offers us all a way to transcend suffering and find significance in the art of living.

In the second book in Osho's Foundation of a New Humanity series, he explores the integral role of women in our society. The realm of spirituality, he poses, has remained male-dominated - not only male-dominated but male-chauvinistic. There were reasons why all religions and spiritual traditions, in their nascent forms, diminished women. They were against women because they were fear-driving. They were against any joy, any love, any celebration. The simple way to drive fear was to condemn women, and separate her from man as much as possible. In The Book of Women, Osho strives to separate spirituality from its ascetic past and celebrate women. He looks to the female spirit as a way of nurturing the soul and cultivating a healthy relationship with spirituality.

This radical new book from Wayne Dyer proposes that we hold the keys to solving any problems we face within us. He sets out basic principles and foundations we can understand and practice in order to access spiritual solutions to any problems we are experiencing. The book is in two sections. The first sets out the theory, the second enables you to put the wisdom into practice. Part 1. The theory: Everything in the Universe is nothing more than energy. Light and though, spiritual energy, vibrates very quickly. Physical energy, and problem areas, vibrate more slowly. When the highest/fastest frequencies of spirit are brought to the presence of lower/slower frequencies, they nullify and dissipate those things we call problems. We all have the ability to increase our energy and access the highest/fastest energies to eradicate problems in our lives. In carefully structured chapters, Wayne Dyer draws on both ancient wisdom and firsthand accounts, and shows how to: stop giving energy to things you don't believe in * keep your energy field uncontaminated * raise and maintain your spiritual energy. In the second part of the book, Putting spiritual problem solving into action, Dyer shows how we can transform any negative energy into positive energy: hate into love * hurt into forgiveness * doubt into faith * despair into hope * sadness into joy
