Have you read Robert Collier's book, "The Secret of the Ages"? All of these LOA teachers that are in "The Secret" basically seemed to take a particular chapter out of Collier's book and speak about it as if it were their particular idea. This gives the appearance that Rhonda Byrnes gathered all of these teachers from around the globe to give their particular slant on LOA and thus presenting an over all complete picture to LOA.

I'm enjoying Adyashanti's, The End of Your World. I read it before and it scared me. Now, some years later, it just makes sense.....it's really congruent with my experience over the last two years. Like slipping into a warm bath.

Toni Packer: The Wonder of Presence. A kinder and gentler take on Krishnamurtian choiceless awareness.

Anam Thubten: The Magic of Awareness. Simple, clear, Western-friendly dharma teachings.

I just realized, after writing this, how similar the two titles are! Great minds 'n all that. ;-)
