    Bolstered By Bolsta

    Lets face facts, we are living in very challenging times to put it mildly. Once in a while, along comes a little book that holds major power within it's pages, that has the potential to uplift and remind us of who we really are, and what really matters-- Phil Bolsta's SIXTY SECONDS is such a book. Bolsta, a compassionate man and gifted writer, speaks from the heart without devolving into nebulous new age-speak. In the great Caroline Myss' foreward, she wisely reminds us that, ''We have an inherent mistrust of the subtle, much less anything that takes a while to come to fruition.''When have you ever heard one of our contemporary theologians or writers say such a thing? Myss is bloody brilliant and her story of how she met Sai Baba, and Gregg Braden's discussion of how he came to understand prayer through Tibetan and Native American eyes make this book worth the purchase, not to mention the many other gems the book contains. Highly recommended.

    'It's a Quiet Thing'

    In a gentle, quiet Foreword Caroline Myss serves as a guide to the reader who may pick up this small but significant book with her thoughts that 'the most meaningful events that have shaped our lives have, by far, been the smallest and the subtlest.' That introduction serves Phil Bolsta's SIXTY SECONDS: ONE MOMENT CHANGES EVERYTHING well for it provides the thread that ties these 45 collected moments shared by a wide variety of thinking people into a memorable, valuable reminder that life as we are living it is precious, that no matter how raw times become or challenging events can be, there is that single moment that can change our vision if only we are vulnerable and sensitive to notice. Bolsta introduces each section of this book (1. Glimpses into the Unknown: life-and-death moments mysterious moments 2. Living Life: heartbreaking moments sacred moments 3. Insightful Incidents: life-altering moments, moments of enlightenment) with brief synopses of his own philosophy and then gives a brief background for each of the highly regarded people who agreed to share their particular moments that changed their lives. As the section divisions suggest these 'moments' can be the result of encountering trauma, fear, near death episodes, or simply those happenstance frozen moments in time where the words or deeds of strangely appropriate individuals arrested the attention of the writer and quietly but inexplicably altered the path or journey through this life. For some readers this collection of moments may feel too grounded in Western religious explanations. But the experiences shared by these 45 'changed people' cannot help but raise our awareness of the 'spiritual' presence that accompanies these changes - and that 'spiritual presence' can be called by any name for any preference. The messages are still poignant and reassuring in our lives that at times seem to lack meaning. Grady Harp

    Sharing private moments -

    I couldn¿t put this book down when I started reading it. SIXTY SECONDS: ONE MOMENT CHANGES EVERYTHING tells us very inspirational moments of many well known individuals. - forty five to be exact. It includes personal stories from people of different walks of life, such as physicians, authors of well known books, film producers, sports legends, educators, philosophers, etc. There are intimate stories from Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Gregg Braden, Dr. Christine Northrup, Neale Donald Walsch, Caroline Myss , Dr. Larry Dossy, Dr. Dean Ornish , and Dr. Bernie Siegel - just to name a few. Reading about so many people who have had huge life-changing events makes me feel like I can handle anything that comes my way. Things really do happen for a reason! I¿ve never understood why some people don¿t believe in an afterlife - or why they don¿t see the miracles that happen each and every day. The stories in this book have actually happened! I can¿t imagine the time and effort expended in gathering all of the stories, putting it in a book format, getting it published and getting the word out to the public. I thank Phil Bolsta, Caroline Myss, and all the many people involved in this wonderful book.
