For me the following books have had the greatest impact on my life thus far (in a somewhat loose order of importance):
1. The Seth Material – Channeled by Jane Roberts
The Seth material in its entirety is probably some of the greatest metaphysical works ever written. The material is highly philosophical and complex which discuss the fundamental spiritual nature of reality. The Seth Material covers a wide variety of topics, including the nature of physical reality, the origins of the universe, the theory of evolution, the Christ story, the nature of God, and the purpose of life. All the original material has been archived at Yale library.
2. Conversations with God – Books 1,2 & 3 by Neale Donald Walsch
I was an extreme fundamentalist Christian for the first 18 or so years of my life until I read these books. They changed my entire perspective on reality through logic and gave me an alternative philosophical model by which I live my life now. The single greatest impact from these books on me has been the explanation of reincarnation how the understanding of this can reshape the way people live their lives.
3. Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock
My first introduction into the field of alternative models on history, unorthodox methodology and thinking. I read this book when I was 13 and thereafter questioned the orthodox dogmas of everything mainstream thereafter. This book got me questioning and inquiring about advanced ancient civilizations as well as extraterrestrials.
4. Hunt for Zero Point by Nick Cook
I first learned about Zero Point energy from this book, forever shaping my educational and career path and my goals in life; to understand the primordial aether.
5. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
This book probably would better have been titled a ‘Treatise on the Ego’. Possibly the best book every written on the Ego in simple terms, and how to achieve a mental state of joy by releasing negative egotistical thought patterns. This book I believe is the ultimate tool for achieving blissful meditation as well. The explanations in this book are worth their weight in gold.
