Below are some books that I’ve found to be personally inspiring on my journey. I’ve read each of them at different times throughout my life. Each one has had a major impact on my life, either through inspiration or education. I recommend adding them to your collection.

As I continue to read and expand my mind, I will update this section with other books. And as always, if you have a book you feel passionate about, let me know and I will add it to the list.

 


 

“The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle

"The Power of Now" by Eckhart TolleThis book changed how I live every aspect of my life. It is my all time, number one, most recommended book to anyone looking to begin their journey into presence, consciousness and living in harmony with the inner self. What I’ve learned from this book has inspired me in more ways than I can ever express. If you have not read this book yet, make it the next thing you read!

 


 

“Conversations with God” by Neale Donald Walsch

"Conversations with God" by Neale Donald WalschI read this book 15 years ago when it first came out. I was in a very different place than I am today. After re-reading it recently I discovered most of what was there to be learned, I missed. I am so glad to have re-read this book. It opened my eyes to a way of thinking that I reflect upon daily.

 


 

“Way of the Peaceful Warrior” by Dan Millman

"Way of the Peaceful Warrior" by Dan MillmanThis is such a great book. I’ve read this a few times and am always entertained and inspired by the story. Dan Millman has written many, many wonderful books, but this is my favorite one by far.

 


 

“The Art of Happiness” by the Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler, M.D.

"The Art of Happiness" by the Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler, M.D.There is so much to be learned from The Dalai Lama. His approach to life is special and this book gives a very good insight into his thoughts. This book is written based on many conversations that Howard Cutler had with the Dalai Lama, so it naturally has a very conversational feel to how it is written. I recommend it to anyone with an interest in the inner workings of the Dalai Lama.

 


 

“Peace Pilgram” Compiled by some of her friends.

"Peace Pilgrim"If you are looking for inspiration, this book must be read by you. This is the story of a woman, known only as Peace Pilgram, who felt it was her calling to walk the streets of America, speaking with people about peace. She survived entirely on the kindness of strangers and those who had heard of her walk. She spoke little of her personal life, so as not to confuse the message with the messenger. She was in touch with her inner voice, and dedicated her life to listening to it. She walked from 1953 until her death in 1981.

“The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching” by Thich Nhat Hanh

"The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching" by Thich Nhat HanhIf you have ever wanted to know more about the teachings of the Buddha, this is the best book to get. Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, has the ability to explain the meaning behind Buddha’s words in a simple, yet elegant way. Although there has been much debate over different interpretations and beliefs within Buddhism, Hanh is able to extract the main purpose of the teachings, so as to allow you to fully understand what is meant by living the life of a Buddhist. This should be part of any Buddhists library, or any library for that matter.
