What books would you suggest to promote spiritual enlightenment and motivation?
I'm not talking about books from evangelical Christians, I'm talking about books that promote zen and getting in touch with your spiritual side. Any help would be great! Thanks!
the road less traveled
The Dalai Lama has written quite a few books, I'd recommend any of them.
This book is from God himself, It is called the Bible and is the only Spiritual book one will ever need to purchase. Nothing compares to it, even if you study ever book in the universe.
Some good reads:
Bhagvad Gita- Spiritual balance in life and the human's responsibilities
The Human Revolution- Sensei Daisaku Ikeda
The New human Revolution-Sensei Daisaku Ikeda
autobigraphy of a yogi
A Course in Miracles.
The Power of Now.
The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.
I am REALLY glad you are not talking about books from bible-thumping right-wing Jerry Falwell, Ted Haggard "Christians".
Here are some of my favorite authors and a title:
The Tao of Pooh
The Little Prince
Thomas Merton's Seven Story Mountain
Why Am I Afraid To Tell You Who I Am by Powell
The Life of Dorothy Day
The Reluctant Messiah by Bach
Any of C.S. Lewis' Books ... they really are not child's tales ...but rich allegories of a spiritual life.
Any of the Vedi literature
Rabbi Harold S. Kushner
Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
Dr. Scott Peck
The 12 Steps for Women (even if you do not have an addiction it is a book worth reading)
Life is Hello, Life is Goodbye, Rev. Alla Bozarth-Campbell, PhD.
Joseph Campbell (Power of Myths and other books)
Have a try, you won't regret it.
Quran online -> http://quran.al-islam.com/Targama/DispTargam.asp?nType=1&nSeg=0&l=eng&nSora=2&nAya=1&t=eng
You can read articles from
You can download Bhagawad Gita which has meditation and the entire spiritual text of Indians from the same site.
There are also direct articles like "Who am I" at ramanamaharshi.org
Neale Donald Walsch: "The New Revelations--A Conversation with God"...
And BTW, this has NOTHING to do with evangelical Christianity at all. I found it to be a very insightful book, discussing "Universal Spirituality" if I had to put it in a nutshell: how our current divided religions do us a disservice, and what we can do to become more truly Spiritual Beings. Check it out...an easy, fast read, and fascinating outlook!!
One of the best Christian books I have ever read is SonPlacing by Garrison Russell. It's available at:
Hi I like to introduce a new book called the Book of Spells 2:
Its here to promote new age development and universal enlightenment.
Heres the Backcover:
A single thought formulated everything that exists around you. What if this world is not what it seems? What if this world is actually a spiritual vortex in disguise? Book of Spells II points to the awakening of what is inevitably to come.
As we become aware of the reality around us, it ceases to control us and loses its spell on us. As it does, we become more spiritually enlightened beings who will promote the blossoming of a new age to come. This new age has been waiting through the eons for the successors, the children of the universe to come forth and shed the veil off the eyes of the celestial forces, so they will recognize who they truly are. We all walk our course of destiny, though it all aligns and points you to where you are now. The very fact that you have encountered this press release about Book of Spells II is not a coincidence. Coincidence simply does not exist.
As you turn the pages, you’ll discover things aren’t what they seem at all.
