Have you ever found yourself thinking your way into a tangle of fret, frustration, or gloom? And then something small - a few kind words, the sun glancing through the clouds, a warm cup of tea - gave you a welcome pause from all your inner chatter? With Making Friends with Your Mind, that´s what Pema Chödrön helps us to do, not by chance but with our full intention: to stop fighting with our thoughts and reopen ourselves to wonder as naturally as we breathe. The Buddha saw that the human experience is full of drama: confusion and conviction, joy and sorrow, success and failure - and that our minds love to amplify all of it. ´´We decide somebody or something is a certain way,´´ muses Pema Chödrön, ´´and then that judgment gets frozen and fixated, long after things change. And things always change, right?´´ In these free-spirited sessions, Ani Pema helps you to bring awareness to those inflexible thoughts and sticking points. Through meditations, daily practices, and the kind of simple pointers that can change our lives, you´ll learn that it is entirely possible to return to the flow and freedom of your experiences - and to find your way each day closer to a place of unconditional friendliness with yourself and with those in need. 1.

From New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown comes a funny heartache of a novel about overcoming the past, confronting the future, and defying all expectations. Everyone is talking about Jennie Sue Baker and the mess she made of her life in New York. The former high school queen bee - and wealthy darling of Bloom, Texas - has returned home after all these years, riding on a common bus and bearing two bounced alimony checks. In a town that thrives on gossip, Jennie’s fall from grace has shamed her mother, set the town buzzing, and caused old, jealous enemies to whisper in delight. They say she’s taken a job as a housekeeper, gotten a garage apartment, and might be crushing on Rick Lawson, a simple farmer with modest dreams. As romance starts to bud, Jennie relishes what it means to follow her heart, find real new friends, and finally be herself - regardless of all the lying town chatter. But fate has another twist in store. Rumor has it that Jennie now stands to lose what matters most…unless she can convince Rick of one true thing - and that’s love. 1. Language: English.

I´m a 64-year-old retired lawyer and former Assistant Attorney General with an unusual story to tell. Every word of it is true. It happened in a state park known as Devil´s Den. For fear of losing my job and damaging my reputation in the legal community, I never spoke about the incident. If it hadn´t happened to me, I´d be skeptical too. In 1977, I was an active duty NCO in the USAF. A friend and I planned a two-night camping trip to explore the wilderness. Hoping to photograph eagles we sought a remote area on high ground. We drove deep into the forest until we came to a high plateau. It was the perfect location. We had forest to our back and a large open meadow in front of us. The view was amazing. We made camp and settled in for an evening around the campfire. Late in the evening I noticed the forest sounds of crickets and tree frogs we´d heard just an hour earlier had all stopped. The silence unnerved me but my friend Toby assured me our laughter and chatter had quieted them and they´d soon return. I still felt unsettled. Looking to the west Toby asked, Where those lights there before? I turned to look. There on the horizon sat a perfect triangle of three very bright stars. We studied them for a few minutes and were speculating what they might be...when they suddenly moved. They rotated once as if on an axis and began a slow ascent into the night sky. The three points of light remained equidistant to one another, gaining altitude and speed. The lights on each point of the triangle grew brighter too, as the triangle expanded. The area inside the triangle was solid black, much darker than the surrounding night sky. As it moved past stars they would blink out for a moment and then blink back on once it had passed. I recall the uneasiness I felt a half-hour earlier was gone. I asked my friend, Hey, Tobe...are you afraid? He didn´t reply. This triangle was soon over our heads. I recall thinking that Toby had been wrong; ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Terry J. Lovelace. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/119609/bk_acx0_119609_sample.mp3.

We rely on automation. Our cars parallel park themselves. The military uses unmanned aerial vehicles for surveillance. We can´t go anywhere without our phones. Our lives are ripe for hacking. Not that anyone would. When a group of high school friends meet at their 45th reunion, they discuss the hypothetical. With all these wireless networks, could someone hack a military drone? Unknown to them, a Russian spy gets wind of their idle chatter and plans to put their idea to the test. Vasili Grigoriy Konstantinov commandeers a drone flying over Washington DC and terrorizes the National Mall with a low flyby. Then, things escalate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Samuel E. Hoke.

Less stress, reduced blood pressure, increased confidence, and greater creativity are widely regarded as some of the most valuable benefits of regular meditation. In this audiobook leading mind coach and medical doctor Stephen Simpson gently guides the listener to a greater appreciation of living in the moment and mindfulness. During this guided meditation you will discover how to quiet your inner voice, and find ways past the barriers that your conscious mind has skillfully constructed over the years, usually with plenty of help from family, friends, and teachers. As your inner voice slowly fades into the background there will be more room for your unconscious mind to replace the chatter with far more useful deeper reflections. The result is a quieter mind that allows the hugely more powerful unconscious mind to speak. This is when your thoughts transcend to a higher level, and life becomes a lot easier, and a lot more fun too. The guided meditation lasts for ten minutes, and is the ideal length for today´s hectic lifestyle. The accompanying soothing background music allows for a further period of 15 minutes reflection to enable the listener to practice Dr Simpson´s unique success visualisation technique. 1.
