In many fairy tales, there lives a terrible beast of stupendous power, a dragon or a basilisk, which tyrannizes the surrounding lands. The local villagers tremble before this monster; they sacrifice... More > their animals, pay money and blood in the hopes of appeasing its murderous impulses.
Year after year, decade after decade, wave after wave of hopeful champions try to match their strength, virtue and cunning against this terrible tyrant.
Try – and fail.
Inevitably, a man steps forward who strikes everyone as utterly incongruous. He is a stable boy, a shoemaker’s son, a baker’s apprentice – or sometimes, just a vagabond.
This book is the story of my personal assault on just such a beast.
This “beast” is the belief that it is impossible to define an objective, rational, secular and scientific ethical system. This “beast” is the illusion that morality must forever be lost in the irrational swamps of gods and governments, forever lacking logical justification and clear definition...< Less
Ask yourself: what is popular culture? How does popular culture, along with universally accepted ideas of art and creativity, mass media, publishing and financial constructs, political and social... More > doctrines come into existence? Are mass social and cultural movements—coupled with one's personal and social identity perception—always a natural, turbulent flow of social, economic, philosophical, spiritual and artistic threads of the collective human experience? Movements which organically emerge from the underground eventually to become mainstream cultural and socially accepted consensus? Then from these options, we pick and choose objectively from this smorgasbord of tastes and opinions? That we, as the consumer, the investor, the voter—including our individual decisions, affiliations, allegiances and even our emotional attachments—are all a unique personal experience, determined exclusively by our own choices when all is said and done?
The answer to all these questions is NO.< Less

'Liberation is always closer than you think.' (Oliver Bosshard)
Caution! 'SIMPLY FREE' is a dangerous book for Satsang and Non-Duality addicts because they could get cured from their addiction.... More >
This wonderful little book is a very special pearl in the Satsang ocean. It is an invitation to the spiritual seeker to pause for a moment and to accept the gift, that what they are looking for was, is and will always be right here.
The author Oliver Bosshard lives in Winterthur in Switzerland. His Satsang is pure non-dualism without compromises and stands beyond religions, philosophies and beliefs. Oliver is not a guru.

Never give up on your faith of finding your way. I had to persevere in finding my way because at the end of the journey there's hope in Jesus Christ our Lord. Thank God, I can see again.< Less

Change For Health was created from the work of Milton H. Erickson, M.D. It is an accumulation of blog posts, from the website: changeforhealth.com. The website was created for those who want to make... More > personal changes. There are countless books about Erickson's work, concerning how he used his therapeutic and psychiatric techniques and strategies to change another person. Instead, I realized, when I read Erickson's transcripts, listened to audiotapes, and watched videos of him in action, that he would always suggests ideas to his patients or anyone who was listening. Many of his ideas stemmed from his philosophy of life: to deal with reality as it is and to use our own resources that we already have to move through life's transitions and difficulties. He often spoke about the differences between our conscious and unconscious mind, our experiential learnings, our resources, and our choices to celebrate life. These are the things that he would remind his patients. My goal is to do the same for my readers.< Less
