Ego 101 (for anyone who is human)

  • Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth (book)  This is a detailed guide to who you are NOT. The first paragraph will tell you if it’s a fit. If it is, read it. You’ll be doing yourself and the rest of the world a huge favor.

Mind/Thoughts 101 (for anyone who thinks)

  • Byron Katie, Loving What Is (book)  Just read it. And read it again. And do it.

Bigger Picture (both fun to read)

  • Brian Weiss, MD, Many Live, Many Masters: The True Story of a Prominent Psychiatrist, His Young Patient, and the Past-Life Therapy that Changed Both Their Lives (book)  The subtitle says it all. Just read it. It’s a quick and easy read, too.
  • Bruce and Andrea Leininger, Soul Survivor: The Reincarnation of a World War II Fighter Pilot (book)  Must read. Astounding. Fascinating. My grandfather gave me this, and he’s totally “normal.” His words were, “either there’s something to this or lots and lots of people are lying.” He’s right – one of those two things is true. And they’re probably not lying.

For Spiritual Seekers (ready to stop seeking and start finding?)

  • Amber Terrell, Surprised by Grace (audiobook)  Amber was a student of Gangaji’s who woke up, and this is the story of her journey. Powerful. Whoa. So powerful. If you’ve been trying really hard in the “spiritual” world, this is simply a must have. Just do it.
  • Gangaji, Spiritual Traps (live audio)  Hear her confirm things you might’ve been thinking if you’ve been on the spiritual path for a while. She doesn’t mince words.
  • Gangaji, Beyond Practice (live audio) This is awesome. Again, she does not mince words. Let her slash through your small concepts.
  • Eckhart Tolle, Findhorn Retreat (live audio)  Be prepared to laugh at yourself. Be further prepared to realize that that self is not even you. That self is temporary. Who you really are is not temporary.

After All Of That (ready to speed things up even more?)

  • Gary Renard, The Disappearance of the Universe: Straight Talk about Illusions, Past Lives, Religion, Sex, Politics, and the Miracles of Forgiveness (book)  Gary’s first book, this is my bible. How could you not read a book with a subtitle like that? Essential for anyone interested in A Course In Miracles.
  • Gary Renard, The End of Reincarnation (audio)  This is a 2-CD set that gives an overview of what Gary teaches. It’s a quick way to determine if this is your cup of tea, unless you’re a reader and want to dive into Disappearance.
  • Gary Renard, Secrets of the Immortal (audio)  This is a 6-CD set that just goes into more detail than the program above.
  • Gary Renard, Your Immortal Reality: How to Break the Cycle of Birth and Death (book)  Gary’s second book, this is a follow-up to Disappearance. Yes, it’s awesome.
  • Gary Renard, Love Has Forgotten No One: The Answer to Life (book)  This is Gary’s third book, which has yet to be released. It goes into what the Course calls special love versus general love. It also shows how many of us are entwined throughout many lifetimes, using the lives of Gary, his wife, and his ex-wife as examples.
All anybody really wants is peace. The good news is that peace can be learned. I’m serious. This should be taught in middle school, but it’s not. So I’m teaching it now.
