Spiritual books selected for their unique perspective and helpful advice.

  A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose
by Eckhart Tolle

Tolle's essential message aligns with the ageless teachings of those who have studied the mind from a perspective based in undifferentiated awareness.

  Exploring the Crack in the Cosmic Egg
by Joseph Chilton Pearce

Pearce's sequel expounds further on his revolutionary ideas and gives us additional insights on the way we structure our reality through language and belief. Yet nothing within culture and ego-consciousness can eradicate anxiety and the fear of death.

  Gates of the Mind
by Joseph A. Sadony

Sadony's impressive testimonies on intuitive abilities and sensitivities will "rescue the truth" as he puts it, by exposing the charlatans and psychic racketeers who deceive us with tricks.

  Life With A Hole In It
by Vicki Woodyard

A story of intense suffering. Caretakers of the terminally ill will find solace in this book. Writers will appreciate the rich metaphors. And spiritual seekers will understand the potential for hope's arrival in the darkest hours.

  Magic, White and Black
by Franz Hartmann, M.D.

Hartmann's writings are of no value to those who are interested in power or possessions. But its lucid formula will change your life to something of conscious direction, and to an experience of beauty... the beauty that lies only in the depths of the Self.

  Meditation as a Way of Life
by Alan L. Pritz

Pritz offers a compilation of solid guidelines for spiritual seekers without crossing the line of proselytizing. We especially resonated with a theme weaved through the book: persistence pays great dividends for seekers.

  Pathways Through To Space
by Franklin Merrell-Wolff

Wolff's discussions and mystical compositions reflect the ongoing struggle to resist the hypnotic effect of the relative world.

When the perceiver is discovered, the perception of the total Universe is discovered in its exactness. Self-analysis is not the discovery of one thing or another; it is the discovery of the discoverer. By this discovery the total Universe of past, present and future will be revealed.

- Ramamurti S. Mishra, M.D., Self Analysis and Self Knowledge (translations of Shankara)
