The 3 books below altered how I live. They have inspired me in the form of personal growth, relationships with others, and physical development. I honestly believe if you read and study these 3 books (all easy reads) you too will find a lot more peace and fulfillment in life.
1. The Power of Now – Eckhart Tolle
June of 2017 I was on an island off the coast of Panama with 4 beautiful girls from Chile. One of which was named Valentina. Medium-dark skin, long dark hair, and a very nice smile. One night we sat together on the island and talked for a good 2 hours. She is very philosophical but very connected with the Universe. I had never been so present and intrigued in listening to someone. She spoke as if she had been in contact with a higher intelligence, a form of energy not seen on our planet. In fact, she said she had…
Days after the trip she sent me a copy of this book. In a nutshell, the ultimate Divinity, the ultimate Essence of the Universe already exists: it’s in Us. We all have the ability to be in complete Presence, complete Peace within ourselves; free from all worry and pain. Inside of ourselves we have an eternal spirit; however, our minds have clouded us from peace. Our minds were developed to solve problems; yet, we have become slaves to them. We are constantly thinking, constantly frustrated, and constantly in pain.
Tolle describes how to disconnect from the mind (very difficult at first!) and be in a state of no-thinking. This state of Presence is the ultimate Peace. This is God. Some people have small glimpses of this throughout life. For example: the sensation of jumping out of a plane, riding a motorcycle, falling in love, or right before death. And that moment, is the separation from the worried mind. Once you free yourself from your mind, you can be in the present moment. The present moment is all that matters. It is what allows people to connect with all beings, and, Love. And this state of being is what is needed to bring about the transformation of our world. In Tolle’s words, “the second coming.”
This book is not meditation nor religion. It simply describes us and the energy of the Universe and how we can connect with that energy we were meant to connect with.
This book has allowed me to be at peace and understand God more. I used to see God in a human form. Now I see God as a living energy, a state of being, an ultimate peace of the spirit inside of every being. But let me remind you, there is no religion preaching in this book. It is a way to be at peace with yourself and connect with the Universe. Since my reading of this (4 times and 1 time on audiobook!), I have had many more incredible and beautiful experiences in life. It’s an energy that you already have and learn to manifest; and the world will feel it.
Valentina and I still keep in contact and hope to meet up in the future. An incredible person with an energy that will help change the world. Until then, I hope this book will change your life too. The world needs it!
2. The Alabaster Girl – Zan Perrion
This book in one word is about beauty. The author, Zan, writes about beautiful moments between man and woman in both prose and poetic formats. A concept throughout the novel is seduction and how it is a GOOD thing, not BAD! Today’s society, schooling, parenting, religions, and media unfortunately teach us to not seduce. Where is the beauty in life these days? In relationships? In the architecture? In culture? In how we interact? We have lost the sense of seduction and beauty. Zan does not comment on current generational issues, politics, or trends but rather articulates beautiful experiences between man and woman – ultimate lovers. Through colorful yet clear accounts, he directs how one’s spirit should be geared to seduce.Once one understands this spirit, one can become an incredible seducer (a good thing!).
In the end it is actually a book about women, written for women. But if a man reads this, and works to obtain such a spirit, he will have a life filled with beauty.
