The Power of One - Bryce Courtney (not a spiritual book per se but my favorite)

Siddhartha - Hermann Hesse (one of the best fiction books out there, along with Narcissus and Goldmund, both fantastic!)

Happiness is a Choice - Barry Neil Kauffman (got me thinking about the nature of beliefs and their effect on our lives, before it was trendy)

Those three are the first ones that come to mind. Honestly, I found Tolle's books kind of boring but I enjoyed his audio and video content very much. :)

Fjodor Dostojevskij the Karamasov brothers or rather what I remember wakening up to love through the speach of Aljosja inthe beginning of the second volume
the works of Alice MIller
one book I enjoyed was the reenchantment of art by Suzy Gablik, a criticism of male dominated egocentred art in favour of ecological feminist art
the 12 steps of adult children to alcoholics workbook
poems by Octavio Paz
Pierre Bourdieus works
I liked the stepwolf more than sidharta by Hermine :D Hesse
I deeply enjoyed the books of the jungian analyst Verena Kast
Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians, Chapter 13 {13:1} If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don't have love, I have become sounding
maybe its not always all the books by a certain author not even tolle, maybe not all the words...sometimes we are more in touch with our true selves
I also among many other liked Walden by Henry David Thoreau
and of course Teihard de Chardin

anyways its not about words like Shakespear and the bible already knew
its about being its not about collecting money and winning its about being in the mystery of being and there experiencing that we all are united in our most sacred privat sphere, sometimes rather often I feel that sometimes I get caught in my ego.

Anybody read the Wallace Wattles books? His books are kind of self-help books.
There are three of them, for which you can get download links from wikipedia.
1. The science of getting rich
2. The science of being well
3. The science of being great

Hey are there any good discussions on this site about how 'the secret' blends with Eckharts teachings. I came to Eckhart by way of the secret & Abraham hicks. I was having trouble manifesting what I wanted and I was not really happy chasing this dream of 'bliss & having everything I want'. In a way I feel like its kind of a trick so they teach you about listening inside or following your feelings and your feelings eventually lead you to wanting to get off all egotistical pursuits altogether?

I dunno but I am really finding peace and fulfillment in Eckharts teachings & other Non Duality teachers. Gina Lake - so kindly recommended by 'weopposedeception' has an awesome book out called Anatomy of Desire: How to Be Happy Even When You Don’t Get What You Want. I was reading some of it last night and I realised that I had an obsession with satisfying my desires. They must be satisfied or I fear I will not be happy. But once I satisfy them - another desire springs up in its place. The book is really good because it breaks down desire - it doesn't tell you not to have desire - but it points to the lasting happiness within, that isn't dependent on any thing - or any thought.. :)

I remember ET talking about quantum physics somewhere in PON. However I couldn't tell you in which chapter exactly.

I've tried to find a couple of lengthy threads I remember here on The Secret - so here is a sampling of the results of my search. By the way, it is also known as "The Law of Attraction."
