Mindful Reading

A friend asked me recently to recommend some books on spirituality, and this caused me to think hard about what I’ve been reading in recent years, and which books had had the most impact on me.  Here’s what I came up with:

One of my teachers has been Eckhart Tolle, so you might want to think about reading some of his books.  “A New Earth” is really good.

Deepak Chopra has also figured big in my awakening, and I highly recommend his Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire.  Creating Affluence is also a good book.

Ram Dass has become my favorite teacher in the past couple of years.  He attacks very serious subjects very seriously, and he has a fabulous sense of humor about absolutely everything.  His Love, Service, Devotion, and the Ultimate Surrender: Ram Dass on the Bhagavad Gita  is A MUST READ.  It’s available on audio-book, as is most every book I’m recommending here.

This brings us to the Bhagavad Gita, a monster of a book that I avoided for years, but it’s another of those books that serves well if you’re walking a spiritual path.  Stephen Mitchell’s translation is easy to understand.

The books by Seth, an entity channeled by Jane Roberts, can be pretty tough-going, but I learned much from them.

And finally I’ll throw in The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.  It’s a fabulous book that I must have read at least half a dozen times by now.
