Parents that allow their children to watch or read fairy-tales alone, often repeating the same movie or book several tines, are allowing them to become exposed to a mind manipulation tool from an early stage.

Children are extremely vulnerable to this kind of brainwashing, which later ends up not only affecting their future but also conditioning their entire life in a fatalistic way. “I don’t deserve”, “It’s not for me”, “I don’t have what is needed” or “I’m a bad person”, among others, are expressions, feelings and thoughts, that dominate the mind of a person affected by the effects of such mechanism.

The name of this syndrome isn’t as important here as the context from which it’s acquired and the beliefs that ends up creating in many adults, which then govern their life unaware of this influence. Therefore, it is not the intention of this book to provide a psychiatric explanation to the phenomena, which can assume multiple interpretations, making the diagnosis often difficult, but rather provide a wider approach and practical insight about the topic, as well as help parents in analyzing the dangers before they even start to manifest. This is also a book dedicated to help those that feel hopeless in life or unable to get a proper relationship, as the recognition of the problem represents the first and most important step to solve it. It’s better to know it than not knowing and allow this mind programming to continue, with movies that tend to insist in repeating the same strategy.

Most of what we’re told to believe, our values and guiding morals, were imposed on us from an early age, and then reinforced with education and the media. Knowing how fairy-tales determine our life is just the first step in freeing our mind.

This book is divided into five chapters:

The Spiritual Identity;

The Acknowledgement of God;

The Perception of Happiness;

The Transversality of Pureness;

The Achievement of Immortality.

Here, the reader will find a study of these subjects in their relation to zen philosophy, allowing a better understanding of all the topics while permitting an intersection of insights from different approaches that can be related.

The content is supported by more than 20 years practicing zen meditation and its application to modern life, as well as studying the different perspectives described and applied by buddhism and its branches in India, Tibet, Japan and China.

It is in this last country that, by experiencing the life and habits of the monks inside one of their own temples, the acknowledgement of all the previous studies with different followers of buddhism starts making its connections in an approach going beyond them. More precisely, it is when observing the difficulties that even those monks have in understanding and explaining the meaning of zen and its application to daily life that the need for this book started making sense for the author.

Zen is a path, not an end, and even though many followers of buddhism may have a certain acknowledgment allowing them to achieve some light into the subject, it is difficult to find a person that can clearly describe it to others beyond his personal experience. Many would say that zen is a lonely path that cannot be described but only earned through the development of conscience and, even though this may be true, the ones that feel difficulties in their spiritual journey still need some guidance so that they may continue on their own. It is for this reason that millions of spiritual individuals seek for teachers or books that can help them and it’s for this same reason that the author has found himself many times explaining to students of zen buddhism what their books and teachers couldn’t. He has spent all his life, since a very early age, studying different religious believes from all over the world. Therefore, this book doesn’t intend to promote zen philosophy in particular or buddhism is general, but instead allow a better perception about how the practice of zen can help anyone in daily life, including in the study of different spiritual groups.

This is a book out of the box, combining the interpretation of zen with many others, so that the reader may break free from the attachments of false teachings, confusion and delusional theories; and, won’t try to represent any buddhist branch in particular, although may actually help in interpreting any of their beliefs. It is a spiritual perspective with a multitude of applications and combinations, simply because zen is not a dogma and can’t be explained by closed minds, but a life-style promoting all life. Zen is a never-ending cycle of spiritual transformation towards enlightenment.

In this groundbreaking work, Robert Sternberg opens the book of love and shows you how to discover your own story--and how to read your relationships in a whole new light. What draws us so strongly to some people and repels us from others? What makes some relationships work so smoothly and others burst into flames? Sternberg gives us new answers to these questions by showing that the kind of relationship we create depends on the kind of love stories we carry inside us. Drawing on extensive research and fascinating examples of real couples, Sternberg identifies 26 types of love story--including the fantasy story, the business story, the collector story, the horror story, and many others--each with its distinctive advantages and pitfalls, and many of which are clashingly incompatible. These are the largely unconscious preconceptions that guide our romantic choices, and it is only by becoming aware of the kind of story we have about love that we gain the freedom to create more fulfilling and lasting relationships. As long as we remain oblivious to the role our stories play, we are likely to repeat the same mistakes again and again. But the enlivening good news this book brings us is that though our stories drive us, we can revise them and learn to choose partners whose stories are more compatible with our own. Quizzes in each chapter help you to see which stories you identify with most strongly and which apply to your partner. Are you a traveler, a gardener, a teacher, or something else entirely? Love is a Story shows you how to find out.
Since ancient times and for thousands of years, from Mesopotamia, Babylon, Egypt and China to Europe, much was the knowledge found and developed to promote a better lifestyle and health. But, for some reason, we have abandoned this path and entered another, of emotional turmoil, physical pain and diseases.

Building itself from the premise that, regarding the meaning of life and purpose of each individual on Earth, spirituality represents the beginning and end of each life-cycle, this book combines the most important words of wisdom from different sources and historical periods, not leaving any important perspective aside. Here, religion and science, among other studies and ancient traditions with thousands of years, are interrelated in an obvious, efficient and practical approach.

Beyond the philosophies of Taoism, Hinduism, Catholicism and Buddhism, as well as the theories of the Law of Attraction and Quantum Physics, it's shown here how each one of these studies is incomplete without an assimilating acknowledgment of their relation, while allowing an unveiling of the parameters of our Spiritual DNA and experiences on Earth.

This Spiritual DNA, just like our Biological DNA, is unique and personal, but included in a wider spectrum of needs and reasons, justifying its existence as an imprint of our spiritual journey throughout many lives. It is the key of life and death, the key to paradise and also to the wisdom of God.

While avoiding an esoteric or mystical description, as many other books about this topic tend to portray, this knowledge includes very specific and pragmatic methods that can easily be verified and experienced by anyone. It's all about the uniqueness of this immortal truth. 

The truth about our Spiritual DNA isn't bound by any religious believe in particular, scientific recognition or social acceptance, because it is supreme to all of them. Every single event in human history and all manifestations of human intellect and creativity, have been using and demonstrating it. And, the current degenerative lifestyle, with all its violence, insanity and diseases, is a consequence of our detachment from this source of life.

The Spiritual DNA is responsible for the multiplication of our Biological DNA in more than two strings, our enlightenment and our wisdom. Studying it, is vital for the whole future of the human race and our freedom as spiritual beings.

Throughout history, many were those taking advantage of this knowledge to enslave mankind, promote themselves, create religions with millions of followers, or secret societies of very powerful individuals. But, everything changes now, with this book. This holy manual can change the world; may it start with you!

Did you know that, according to several scientific studies, orgasms can relieve pain? Or, that while 75% of men always reach orgasm during sex, only 29% of women report the same? (by National Health and Social Life Survey)

Did you know that, according to the Museum of Sex, the vibrator was originally used as a medicinal treatment for female "hysteria" during the 19th century, as it helped dissipating hysteria's anxiety-related symptoms?

This book was a major success when launched for the first time, which proves that this knowledge is as urgently needed as also rare to find. It was written for women and combines the perspective of many that were interviewed for this purpose.

As the Sex Industry grows by the millions, and the number of women and men that want to be in Adult Movies increases as well, it becomes clear that everyone has hidden ideas, believes, thoughts, habits and curiosities that, somehow, need to be satisfied. This book was created to promote an uplifting assimilation of all them, by proposing an analysis of sex that is mature, realistic, educational and insightful.

Many books in the market, promoting modern but uncomfortable sex positions in order to increase women’s pleasure, or showing them how to choose a good sex partner with the wrong rules, are far from the value that this book intends to offer. Here, you'll learn how to last longer, by knowing what to eat, drink and do, how to obtain maximum pleasure, how to have more fun and how to behave with multiple partners at the same time. Nevertheless, it doesn't forget the importance of meaningful relationships and their relation to sex, by describing the significance of its mind healing properties.

"Sex is a part of nature" (Marilyn Monroe), "energy" (Beatrice Wood) and "a conversation carried out by other means" (Peter Ustinov).
