Kindle Free Pick of the Week: Meditation: The Journey Beyond The Mind

Looking to meditate?

There are a lot of books on the spiritual marketplace. The volume is overwhelming. Yoga, mindfulness, reiki, you name it. It’s enough to make your head spin.

And mindfulness has received a lot of recognition — not just from its use in therapy, but from scientific research.

At the same time, in this modern age, many people just don’t want to return to the religious certainties of the past.

This book is for all of those who are looking for a happy medium. It distills the spiritual path, boiling it down to its core elements, and presents it in a way that is understandable and practical for anyone.

It all comes down to authentic presence — the state of awakening that already exists within you as the fundamental element of your being.

In this book you will find out:

    What authentic presence is, and why it matters
    How we end up separate from our inner being by getting sucked into the games of ego
    How to discover authentic presence within yourself through the practice of meditation
    How to cultivate that presence
    The importance of bringing the profoundly authentic state into your real life
    How to use authentic presence to transform negative emotions into positive situations

Kindle Book Pick of the Week: Putting the Science in Fiction

Pre-order this fascinating read.

Science and technology have starring roles in a wide range of genres--science fiction, fantasy, thriller, mystery, and more. Unfortunately, many depictions of technical subjects in literature, film, and television are pure fiction. A basic understanding of biology, physics, engineering, and medicine will help you create more realistic stories that satisfy discerning readers.

This book brings together scientists, physicians, engineers, and other experts to help you:

  • Understand the basic principles of science, technology, and medicine that are frequently featured in fiction.
  • Avoid common pitfalls and misconceptions to ensure technical accuracy.
  • Write realistic and compelling scientific elements that will captivate readers.
  • Brainstorm and develop new science- and technology-based story ideas.

Whether writing about mutant monsters, rogue viruses, giant spaceships, or even murders and espionage, Putting the Science in Fiction will have something to help every writer craft better fiction.

Putting the Science in Fiction collects articles from "Science in Sci-fi, Fact in Fantasy," Dan Koboldt's popular blog series for authors and fans of speculative fiction (dankoboldt.com/science-in-scifi). Each article discusses an element of sci-fi or fantasy with an expert in that field. Scientists, engineers, medical professionals, and others share their insights in order to debunk the myths, correct the misconceptions, and offer advice on getting the details right.

Writers and broadcasters will love this one!

Kindle Book Pick of the Week: AEngineering for Cats: Better the Life of Your Pet with10 Cat-Approved Projects

A cute but fun read that is worth a mention.

DIY for at lovers.

There may be 100 million pet cats in this country, but who says that means they’re domesticated? Sure, they clean themselves, use a litter box, and hunt rodents, but cats are also territorial beasts who think furniture is meant for claw sharpening, and that running water is always better than still.

In this inventive, surprisingly funny, and highly entertaining and practical book, Mac Delaney addresses the quirks of cat behavior through the mindset of an aerospace engineer (because that’s what he is!)—and gives us 10 projects that solve the most common sources of friction affecting cats and their doting owners.

Take that preference for running water. Because cats don’t trust still water (in the wild, a stagnant pool can harbor disease), they’re often dehydrated and cranky. Here’s how to build not one but two different fountains that will provide fresh, moving water. Or another problem: Cats, diminutive in stature, can feel inferior around humans, causing them to act out in negative ways. The solution: Erect a cat shelf on your wall, giving your pet a prime perch and a height advantage. And that furniture scratching problem? Construct the Cat Cave—it has angled surfaces for optimal scratching, a curved top for ergonomic lounging, a carpeted interior for perfect napping, and an escape route out back for emergency exits.

For any cat lover with a modicum of DIY skills, here’s a whole new approach to living happily ever after with your pet(s).
