I have a bunch of books that I haven't read. I don't know if I should read them now or buy another book that would have a better impact on my life

I really enjoyed The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. If you ever frequent bookstores like Barnes and Noble you have probably seen the cover. Mcdonalds colors with a man running on a wheel. Can't miss it. The studies mentioned in that book will really give you a reason to stop doing that shit you know is no good for you and start doing stuff that will serve you in the long term. Its all around just a fun read. I could recommend tons, but from the quick scan I did of your more recent posts It looked like this one might be suitable. Good luck ;)

Yes, The Power of Habit is awesome. One of my favourites. 

My other best books are

- Alcoholics Anonymous aka "The Big Book"

- Dancing With Life, Phillip Moffitt

- The Buddha Said, OSHO

- Letting Go, David R. Hawkins

- The Mastery of Love, Don Miguel Ruiz


I am not enlightened. Please don't ask me anything. If God is for you, who can be against you?

The first book I real on spirituality that got me more interested in pursuing enlightenment was the book "Becoming Enlightened" by the Dahi Lahma. I found the book at my local library. They were throwing it away and I picked it up. After that, I picked up "A New Earth" by Eckart Tolle which they were also going to throw out and I found that also very inspiring. This was about five years ago. 

I will list some of the best books I've read so far:

  • Everything Is Here To Help You - Matt Kahn 
  • Mastery - George Lenard 
  • Conversations With God - Neale Donald Walsch
  • The Book Of Not Knowing - Peter Ralston

Well, if you are playing hide and seek it would be awfully dull if you had a map where every one is pinpointed readily available, I guess :D

I think at the end of the day, at different stages of your life, you need different books. 

Your mind may not be ready for it if you suddenly read a very complex book.

New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. A lot of depth on Ego.


Form is emptiness, emptiness is form.

"Nonviolent communication" by Marshall Rosenberg completely transformed the way I communicate with people, and how I react when others are angry


...But what if the opposite is true?
