Gregg’s Picks

Following are recent releases from a number of genre
that I feel honor the principles of knowledge
and wisdom that help us to make better choices in our lives and make this world a better place.

Wouldn’t it be great if we were born with instruction manuals?
Each one would be different based on what we needed to learn, but the basics would be the same: how to create healthyrelationships, how to deal with sorrow and pain, how to reach our goals, and how to know what we want to do with our lives when we grow up.  DailyOM: Learning to Live is the next best thing to a personal instruction manual:
a guiding light to reassure us that we’re on the right path, and to help fix us when we feel broken.


Title:  What Does That Mean? Exploring Mind, Meaning and Mysteries.
Author:  Eldon Taylor
Publisher:  Hay House Publishing
Description:  222 pages, Hardcover with jacket
ISBN:  978-1-4019-2333-4
Web site:
Enlightenment is not something that can just be handed to you. The closest thing to it that you can receive are thoughts and questions that can lead you inward in the search for meaning. What Does That Mean? is full of thoughts and questions that do just that. Some insights you may have thought of and then forgotten, and others you may have experienced but simply haven’t appreciated.


Title: Evidence of Life (CD)
Artist:  Martha Reich
ISBN:  0026120397
Web site:

“This CD includes the track God’s Eye, a moving statement of the power of prayer in the face of history’s lessons and the futility of war. Whether you listen in a room filled with people or alone in the privacy of your home, each song feels as though Martha has written it just for you–to tell you something important about life. And that’s where the healing begins. Her skillful use of unexpected melodies and intimate lyrics are the heart-codes that remind us of similar moments in our own lives.”  Gregg Braden
