Any book suggestions?

  1. Philosophy & spirituality?
     
  2. Try the major ones. Bible, koron, ect
     
  3. Better Never To Have Been: The harm of coming into existence
    David Benatar
     
  4. ^Sounds like a real winner!^

    "Food of the Gods" Terence McKenna

    "Doors of Perception" Aldous Huxley

    Those are some of my favorites. This one was probably one of the most life-changing books, but people would probably have a hard time finishing it because it takes about 6-7 chapters to start getting really interesting...

    "The Cosmic Serpent" by Jeremy Narby
     
  5. Any book by " Thich Nhat Hanh "

    or " The way of the peacful warrior " by Dan millman

    Changed my life...... put me on a path that is truly spiritual. After years of pretending to be an athiest. good luck
     
  6. Unless you are willing to logically analyze the necessity of your own existence you are not a philosopher. We threw away the ego and were going hardcore
     
  7. Tibetan Book of the Dead (I think the real name is Bardo Thadol (sp?)).
     
  8. The Upanishads, they're full of ideas you'll encounter in other spiritual practices and they're just plain beautiful, especially considering their age; a great example of the range of human thought.
     
  9. bhagavad gita,
    the power of now by eckhart tolle
    God is not great - christopher hitchens
     
  10. be here now
     
  11. siddartha by herman hesse.

    ....and then you got all the scriptures, the bible, the torah, the q'ran, the bhagavad gita, etc

    Tao Te Ching
    The Chuang-Tzu


    ^This is the tao to study the Tao.

    My sig is a slightly abridged version of Chapter 57 of Stephen Mitchell's translation of Tao Te Ching.
