The Surrogates by Consuella Harris

A brilliantly intriguing story.

The subject of surrogacy raises various emotions and views in people, depending, I suspect, on such factors as, their sex, religious viewpoint and life…

Benefits of Gardens and Meditation

The human body is called the manussakaya.  In this physical body are the refined counterpart, the celestial form, the Brahma form, the Anupa-Brahma form. The parami (perfect self) may take many lifetimes to evolve.  Only the Buddhas and the Arahants possess this perfect self. That was the reason the Buddha taught there was no self.

Meditation is one of the techniques needed to modify the habit patterns of the mind. The heart receives and knows the various supporters of perceptions,…

Function of Citta

Buddhism is free from compulsion and coercion and does not demand blind faith. The Buddhists don’t believe the universe was created by an almighty God. This so-called almighty god cannot be uncaused and similarly cannot be eternal.  Buddha said volition gives rise to consciousness, and consciousness in turn gives rise to mind and body. The mind is not the self. The body is not the self. Where is the self? With a serene and contended mind, you will be tranquil and healthy.

The body can…

Neb the Great - Another 5 Star Review - this time from Readers' Favorites

Reviewed By Karen Pirnot for Readers’ Favorite

In Neb the Great: Shadows of the Past, author A.K. Frailey offers the last in the Deliverance Trilogy. Not having read the first two books of the trilogy, I did not feel at all disadvantaged in reviewing this book on its own. The book is beautifully conceptualized and developed and was easy for this…

Kids Love For Animals

Kids Love For Animals ( Poem )

Children’s favorite shows are of animals

I have hours in a playlist that are laughable

Like a camera pecking rooster and fun monkeys

To a mom and a baby miniature donkeys

Videos of wild turkeys and charming geese

Ducks in water and chicks learning to speak

Dazzling ostrich and many free birds

Some you would not want to move towards

A large unique animal is the alligator

The total opposite of the…

A Short Essay on Buddhism

In a corpse the vital heat is extinguished, breathing, speech and mind also ceased. The faculties of senses are broken.  For one who has entered into nirodha (cessation of craving and suffering) during meditation, the heat exists, the faculties are clear, except respiration, speech, feeling and perception which are stilled and inactive.

By the 1st century BC, Han Dynasty spread its power to Central Asia. The Chinese learnt about Buddhism as a result of trade and cultural…

When a glut can spoil the whole barrel.

I sense a slowing down of indie book sales; not just here in the Parker household, but generally across the whole spectrum. I could be wrong and way off beam, but I have read opinions on the web from people working at both ends of the publishing industry. In the continuing battle between Amazon and Hachette, a claim has been made that they are each trying to eliminate the other. This sounds like one trying to gain a territorial advantage over the other. The product, i.e. book sales, is being…

Creating A Christmas Tree ( Poem )

Creating A Christmas Tree ( Poem )

Create designer Christmas tree

From squash, to bread, and fun cookies

Instructions made so easily

One from red hat society

Home from the heart season theme

Star wars made a holiday scene

Wonderland can be of little lambs

Making ornaments with your hands

Whatever your style or budget

Your personal touch can be tropic

Focal point of your home can be

Inspired by glamorous jewelry
