Sometimes curiosity gets the better of us. More often than not, though, our curiosity leads us to fascinating places we’ve never been that will change us for the better.
Thankfully, there are plenty of books out there that will satisfy our natural inquisitiveness. At times, we come across works that change our lives in profound ways. For example, we are brought up to see one reality (this world), one way of thinking to discover things (science), and one spirituality (our cultural religions). At some point, we are bound to come across alternative interpretations like multiverse theory, the philosophy of science, and different spirituality.
Below we’ve chosen five groundbreaking spiritual books for you that can help you on your journey toward a different knowledge than perhaps the one with which you were brought up. We hope they inspire you too!
The Secret of the Soul, by William Buhlman
The jury is out as to what the nature of reality actually is. It is an ancient question that has been asked by philosophers for all of written history. Perhaps you have been on this journey to look deeper than what you can see superficially and come across groundbreaking concepts such as the law of attraction, psychic abilities or out of body experiences.
If you have, then you certainly are aware of how our society at large feels about such things. It can be difficult to reach our own potential when it seems like everywhere there are skeptics. It is natural to doubt your own abilities, and that is why a book like this is so important. The Secret of the Soul teaches us how to have an out of body experience, and how the natural world responds to thoughts.
This book will make you realize the power of your thoughts, and you will not be able to deny the law of attraction any longer. Also, you will learn how natural out of body experiences really are (hint: we dream every night). In all, Buhlman manages to make extraordinary capabilities seem normal. With tools like this, we could certainly all reach our human potential.
The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle
Mindfulness meditation is one of those practices that has survived millennia.
However, The Power of Now brought it into the mainstream for the West.
Now, thanks in part to the popularity of Tolle, the masses are learning to inhibit the ego, find peace, and feel comfortable in their skins. This is good for everyone!
Followers of the law of attraction also appreciate this book, even though it does not specifically cover this aspect of life.
Simply put, less ego resistance means smoother manifestations.
Repeatlessness, by Dr. Joe Marshalla
This book expands on being present, but also talks about the human condition and the way the mind works.
It is a guide on how the mind operates, and speaks of ways to use this knowledge to improve yourself.
Inside you will also find interesting analogies regarding the meeting of goals, reducing negativity, and staying focused.
It is a very short read, good for a weekend trip!
Conversations With God, by Neale Donald Walsch
This is a trilogy of books written as the author hit a low point in life and angrily asked a lot of tough questions. He was surprised when ‘god’ answered.
These books have helped Christians understand their faith better, and non-Christians to understand a lot of life’s fundamental truths better, such as ‘we are all one,’ ‘ there’s enough for everyone,’ and ’our way is A way, not THE way.’
These books are tough to digest at times, and it does contain some radical knowledge.
If you would like to open up to your true powers, and realize why society is how it is, then this trilogy is for you.
Active Consciousness, by Amy L.Lansky, PhD
This is another good description of how the law of attraction works, and provides simple exercises for staying present and feeling love.
It is a book for formative moments in your life, such as going away to college, starting a new career, or having your first child.
After reading this, you will hold on to your personal power for dear life. You will have a new understanding on the power that lies within the choices we make, and how those create new realities all the time. The quotes within from famous philosophers and mystics underscore the points very well. Really, this is a must read for anyone!
