FAVORITE BOOKS OF ALL TIME
If you’re now as curious as I once was to find out “Who else thinks like this?”, here are the books that started showing up in my life that gave me the most peace, confirming my own thoughts and suspicions about life and reality. They’re listed here in no particular order, except for the first two, which are deeply profound books that rocked my world decades ago. Whether you seek these titles out, or allow others to find you, if you have questions and insist upon answers, one way or another you’ll be reached by the truth.
- The Nature of Personal Reality by Jane Roberts. Like all her Seth books (and they’re all outstanding), this one is very deep, objective, and even a bit complex, but I consider Seth to be the “granddaddy of them all.”
- Ramtha by Ramtha. Very friendly, powerful, and inspirational. Another easy read and one of the most powerful of all the titles listed here.
- Discover the Power Within You by Eric Butterworth. Awesome clarity. Extremely inspirational! Lots of biblical and Christian references, but explained as I believe they were originally meant, without the religious spin.
- Siddhartha by Herman Hesse. Profound wisdom in a timeless, world-famous story.
- The Game of Life and How to Play It by Florence Scovel Shinn. Very simple and powerful advice, written in the 1920s. Easy reading for any age.
- Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East by Baird T. Spalding. Mind-bending! Volumes 1 and 2 are as adventurous as they are inspirational.
- Illusions by Richard Bach. Exhilarating, fun, and easy to read. These two novels are on almost everyone’s list for good reason!
- Journeys Out of the Body by Robert Monroe. The classic on out-of-body experiences.
- Life After Life: The Investigation of a Phenomenon— Survival of Bodily Deat by Raymond A. Moody Jr. and Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. The classic on life after life and near-death experiences.
- Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch. Each of the books in this series is a mind-blower. They’re also very easy and fun to read.
- You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. This book has two parts: a fabulous autobiography, and, the most impressive list of human bodily ailments and their likely spiritual cause (truly stunning).
- Emmanuel’s Book by Pat Rodegast. The entire series of Emmanuel books offers gentle yet powerful reminders of how angelic we all are. Wonderful.
- The Prophet by Khalil Gibran. Another perennial, international bestseller.
- Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda. This is an account of spiritual seeking, and finding. It portrays full enlightenment as possible for every human, and views it as a worthy goal. Totally WOW! Contains many accounts of exciting super-natural encounters and paranormal events.
- The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles. If you’ve ever thought that you might like wealth, you’ll love this. A truly unique and encouraging perspective.
- Messages from Michael by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro. Very “out there,” yet ringing of truth and containing revolutionary material I’ve not thought of or heard of elsewhere. Helps me to be less critical of others and more patient with myself.
- Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. Although Ayn Rand was an agnostic/atheist, her books are extremely spiritual in that she considered herself a “man worshiper” and she reveled in the glory of life and our ability to have dominion over it all. Her epic novels are spellbinding, romantic, and deeply philosophical, and her talent is off the charts.
- The Secret (DVD and book) by Rhonda Byrne. I’m grateful to have been one of the featured teachers in this outstanding documentary on the law of attraction. It’s as inspirational as it is enlightening.
