|The Most Direct and Rapid Means to Eternal Bliss
If you are looking to directly experience your own awakening instead of reading about the descriptions from others, this book is for you. This is the book of all books. It points out a rapid and direct pathway to your own enlightenment as well as some of the ego’s trickiest tricks and how to transcend them. If you are ready, if you are truly ready for your own enlightenment, this is the book for you. It is not meant to be read like most books: for the intellect or spiritual ego to adopt nice concepts. It’s designed to be read to awaken the reader from the mind entirely.
Most people throughout time have not awakened, including most spiritual students. This book explains exactly why and shows you how to avoid the pitfalls that plague that vast majority of spiritual aspirants.
If you’re looking for just one book to give you step-by-step instructions, you’ve found exactly what you’re looking for. If you’ve heard instructions like “Be your true Self” but you don’t know what that really means, not to mention how to actually do it, this book will show you exactly how.
|The Untethered Soul
An amazing book taking you step-by-step from normal human existence of suffering and identification with thoughts, to recognizing your true nature as awareness, to letting go and accepting life as it is, to finally experiencing and becoming one with the love of God. This is an absolutely fantastic book, effectively written, efficiently expressed, and monumentally transformative in its abilities to help the reader perceive reality as it is, beyond the limitations of the mind.
Are you confused by the numerous types of meditation out there? There’s watching the breath, chanting, visualization, and more. There’s many types of valuable meditation styles, but what is most ideally geared towards awakening? Have you ever tried controlling the mind to make it go quiet? Have you ever wondered about the importance of proper posture in meditation?
In this book, Adyashanti answers these questions and more, providing a wonderful manual describing exactly what meditation is and what it isn’t, as well as his recommended meditative suggestions in order to most naturally let go of the ego and rest in your natural state of primordial awareness. In this book he focuses on the two main spiritual topics: Allowing everything to be as it is & Meditative self-inquiry.
If you are looking for a very simple and effective understanding of meditation and the proper attitude to take towards meditation, I highly recommend this book. It’s relatively short, very easy to read, and even comes with a CD including audio guided meditations by Adyashanti.
|You’re Not Going Crazy… You’re Just Waking Up!
When your life feels like it’s actually crumbling down and it feels like all that you are is being ripped apart, this is actually a sign that you are being transformed as your ego is falling apart. If we resist this process, it can be quite painful and we may force ourselves to repeat the same process over and over. On the other hand, when we surrender to the process and allow ourselves to die, we can be reborn into a new life which arises from Spirit.
This book is an incredibly helpful guide to anyone experiencing a dark night of the soul or a break down in old illusions and ways of being in the world. You can read my full review of it here.
The actual awakening process involves many changes to virtually every aspect of life. This fantastic channeled book explores the ascension and awakening process and how it impacts our consciousness, energy, intuition, manifestation abilities, bodies, experience of time and space, karmic energies, the void, nonattachment, God, dogma, Oneness, and much much much more. It’s such a detailed and in-depth book that just glows with the energy of love. Every page feels so good to read. The guidance and wisdom shared in this book makes it easily one of my favorites. You can read a more detailed review here.
|Conversations with God
Neale Donald Walsch
If I could recommend just one thing for people who want to know more about higher truths to read, it would be the Conversations with God book series. In these books, the author literally has a two-way conversation with God and discusses such topics as why we’re here, how the universe works, relationships, sex, politics, joy, creation, reincarnation, religion, karma, how to make life work the way you want, the misunderstandings of man and the truth of how things really operate in the universe, various illusions such as time and space, and so on. These books make a perfect introduction for anyone looking for their own truths, as well as for advanced students really looking to get into the heart of universal consciousness and enlightenment.
|Communion with God
Neale Donald Walsch
Understand the nature of humanity and its current state in the world by learning the illusions humans have regarding reality, as well as learn how to use the illusions in the way they were designed to further your own evolution. In order to be “in this world, but not of it,” it is necessary to first see the illusions as illusions. You can then step back, observe the way reality actually is, and then jump back in and play with the illusions in the way they were intended.
|Dr. Quantum’s Little Book of Big Ideas
Fred Alan Wolf
Explore the understandings gained from the scientific domain of quantum mechanics and see how they neatly tie in with the realizations understood by the world’s great sages and mystics. This book offers a variety of ideas which will challenge your current belief system of reality, offering you the opportunity to open up to an infinitely larger reality which you may not have been aware of before. Check out this book and watch as the illusions you’ve been thinking were so real start to feel not so solid and may even start to crumble the deeper you explore.
| The Power of Now
The Power of Now is a definite must-read by anyone interested in experiencing life beyond suffering and looking to find out who they are. This book introduces concepts such as the ego, the painbody, presence, and the Now moment. With the concepts at hand, it guides the reader and shows them how to live life in a place of absolute peace in every moment of every day. The material presented in this book is absolutely fundamental and is the foundation to understanding higher level truths.
|A New Earth
A New Earth is a prefect follow-up to The Power of Now. While it’s not necessary to read the other book, the two go hand in hand. A New Earth expands on the ideas of transcending the ego and shows how this is essential for personal happiness, as well as for the creation of a new earth of peace and harmony. The material presented in this book is so simple, powerful, and effectively presented, that Oprah has teamed up with the author, Eckhart Tolle, to share its message with the world.
|The Way of the Peaceful Warrior
This book tells a fantastic story of an athlete whose sole purpose in life is the achievement of his desires. This only leads him to a state of perpetual misery. He winds up meeting an old man, Socrates, who becomes his mentor and guides the young man towards being a true warrior who lives in alignment with love and can overcome any obstacles. It is an outstanding read and is a great read for anyone, especially those who are new to spirituality and concepts like being present. The book is also available as a movie.

This book will open your eyes to all you need to know and guide you towards the creation of a new earth, starting with you. Be the change you wish to see in the world.
| The Law of Attraction
This book is an excellent introduction to the Law of Attraction. It covers the basics of it and how it works. With this information at hand, the book will guide you to deliberately creating your reality and instructing you how to allow your creations to enter your life once they have been created. Many questions you have regarding the Law of Attraction will be addressed in this book, including many others you may not have even considered.
|Ask And It Is Given
This book is divided up into two parts. The first half explains the importance of feeling good and informs you exactly what your emotions are and how to use them to your benefit. If you were to look as your emotions as a scale from despair to joy, this book guides you to moving up the emotional ladder and thereby assisting you in creating what you wish. In the second half of the book, you are given nearly two dozen different processes which assist you in becoming clear about what you want and ultimately manifesting your desires. All of the processes are excellent, but some are better suited for certain people than others. Similarly, some processes are better used when you’re feeling great and want to expand from there while others are better used when you’re feeling low and want to expand from there.
Many people experience sex primarily on a biological or emotional level. This audio program shows you how to infuse your relationships and the physical acts of intimacy with true love. It will also guide you into using sex to merge with the Oneness of all that is. You will learn about the energies being the masculine and feminine polarities and come to realize how the two go hand in hand. Also included with this program are a number of exercises you can do alone or with a partner to more intimately connect on a heart and soul level.
|Home with God
Neale Donald Walsch
This book is absolutely a must-read by anyone who’s currently alive. Why? It explains in fantastic detail the truth behind death, what it is, what it isn’t, what happens on “the other side”, how death is actually a creative process and something to be excited about, hell, suicide, “accidental” deaths, how everyone dies when they choose to, the fact that you are always the cause of your own death no matter what, and a bajillion more eye-opening and life-transforming truths. Fear of death is the ego’s core fear and transcending fear of death by understanding its true nature will radically transform your life.
