Just Some Good Ol' Brain Food
The Rhythm of Life: Matthew Kelly
I quote this dude so much in my blogs it’s insane! Just as the title suggests, it’s about getting into the flow of existence. I can’t stress the impact this book has been on my perception of my being. The necessity of purpose, HOW to determine it, what blocks us from it, how to not...this book has everything. Mine book is so highlighted I’m pretty sure it’d glow in the dark. READ THIS READ THIS READ THIS!
The Spirituality of Imperfection: Ernest Kurtz & Katherine Ketchum
It’s totally where I plucked the blogs name from! This book is THE pressure release valve of the expectations of perfect output. It really hammers home the undeniability of imperfection and even goes into the necessity of it. Through information supported by storytelling this is a perfect book on self-acceptance.
You Are Here: Thich Nhat Hahn
It’s a short and easy but valuable read on mindfulness. It explains a variety of mindfulness practices how they can be used. I mean, if you’ve been toying with the idea of adopting a mindfulness practice and have been reluctant, this book is perfect for you.
ACIM: A Course in Miracles
I’ve had this book since 2014-15 and still haven’t finished it. Of what I’ve read of it thus far (about ⅓-½) it’s an incredibly spiritually empowering book. It put some unknown (or overlooked) truths into perspective for me. It’s densely written, packed with a lot of unfamiliar information being in EVERY section and chapter. If you’re already in touch with your spirituality and you’re looking to explore its full potential and purpose I think this book is a winner. Maybe you can tell me how it ends.
Bhagavad Gita: Sage Vyasa
This was the first ‘spiritual’ book I’d ever read. It read more like a story than most of the (for lack of a better term) instructional books on spirituality I’ve read. Everyone I’ve spoken to who read it got something different from it but, to put it simply, it introduced me to submitting to a higher source. How if I’m acting under from that place that things would go as they should. In the book it ended in victory but we all know that’s not always going to be the case. Anyhoo, it’s famous for a ton of reasons so read it and tell me what YOU got from it.
