CENTRE By Brian Taylor
“A marvellous and truly stunning book!! A treasure indeed. A way to complete happiness is here. It is ALL UP TO US. Read chapter 37 and find out WHY things are the way they are for YOU.” —Pisamorn Chulsrikaival, ThailandCENTRE is a book about original investigation arising as a result of asking the question “How do you find out what lies beyond the world before actually leaving it?”
Finding out the truth about what is inside you – not the bones, flesh and organs but the very ‘Centre’ of your being,
the gateway to your real self, where you came in and where you go out.
This is a rare book with the power to create an awakening, one that can radically change your life for the better.
“I came to see that all beings had this luminous Centre at the centre of their beings and were,
for the most part, unaware of its significance or even its existence.
This book contains the results of some of my researches into the Centre.
Some may find it interesting.”
Learn how to access the Centre. How to understand it. How to use it.
How to enter it forever.
