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, Thailand

CENTRE 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.

  from  CENTRE The Truth about Everything  by Brian Taylor





Bones and stones, churches and vivisection  laboratory. Peaceful   gardens, rivers and quadrangles. Relentless  efforts to squeeze the money out of its   alumni. Drifting ghosts  looking for  peace. Drifting students looking for a place in a    disintegrating world. Beauty inherited from the past. Deliberate ugliness   bequeathed by the present. Vice Chancellors once men of  God. Currently a man   chosen because he is good at making  money. A footprint of your world and mine.






“At last! The true History of Humanity according to reliable Jewish and Christian sources, showing how it all went so terribly wrong and left us in the mess we find ourselves in Now – even if we are Moslems!”






A world in trouble?
War in the Far East and the Middle East. Suicide bombers. Riots on the streets.
Gaols and Psychiatric hospitals full. Soaring crime. Racial hatred.
Violence in the schools and in the home. Economic Meltdown.
Yes. A world in trouble.
Here is the answer. Simple, straightforward.
