Smashwords book reviews by Oakeley

  • Three Short Stories on Jan. 05, 2011

    I enjoyed the freshness of these three short stories, and especially 'Remembering Pablo' and 'Time Machine'. From his excellent opening paragraphs to the thoughtful twists at the end, his characters show us a window into our world as well as into theirs. He is a marvellous observer and uses this talent to weave the reader into his stories.
  • The Gift of Originality on April 25, 2012

    Anyone wishing for a greater insight into a personal life including all of its potential and possibilities in this modern Age should read this book. Written in a relaxed easy style it is a practical guide at how to reach a higher personal potential through connecting up with the inner resource; The Original Gift. Our originality and creative expression, as discussed by Justine can be held back through faulty reasoning or inconspicuous blockages; brought on as a matter of course or by design. Many ideas are presented as to how a personal reality may be created; what is important, what is not? To each their own consideration and discernment, this is the way it must be. Chapters like; “The Law of Nature, Opportunity and Potential” and “Who are you?” are sure to expand consciousness and awareness. There are areas where a personal credibility may be stretched; such as in the chapter of “Who is to blame?”; where the possibility of God is discussed, or “Death and Thereafter”; where a transmutation process is proposed. In the last Chapter; “Health, Wealth and Stealth” the long term implications of a current world reality are looked at. These are the words that belong to everyone and must be in everyone’s interest! I liked the book because of its weighty transformative power. There is no denying, that if the private exercises at the end of each chapter are followed up there will be a greater awareness and higher consciousness for the reader. The book is a combination of philosophy and reality, spirituality and practicality, offering a sensible and inspirational approach for personal happiness. It is a book that needs to be read with an open mind, some ideas will certainly surprise you, such as the simplicity of abundance! I recommend that you read The Original Gift.
