Book Nibbles

March 23, 2010

I love getting ideas from other people about books. I especially love when they are inspired by those books, whether they are novels or cookbooks or biographies, spiritual…..it is so great when someone is excited and can’t wait for you to read them. Well, I thought I would periodically share books that have inspired me. To date, I keep finding books that feed my soul and I get it that they aren’t for everyone. The other thing I have noticed is that sometimes I will hear about a book three or four times in a very short period of time and that usually signals to me that maybe I’m being spoken to!!!! Whatever the case, here are a few of my favorites from the last year or so:
Steering by Starlight, Martha Beck
A New Earth, Ekhart Tolle
The Last Lecture, Randy Pausch
What We Ache For, Oriah Mountain Dreamer
Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life with the Heart of a Buddha, Tara Brach
Broken Open, Elizabeth Lesser
There is Nothing Wrong with You, Cheri Huber
The Dark Side of the Light Chasers: Debbie Ford
Invocations: Calling Forth the Light that Heals, Jacob Glass
Entering the Castle, Carolyn Myss
Anatomy of Peace, Arbinger Institute
Currently Reading:
Loving What Is: Byron Katie (listened to CDs, now reading book)
The Wisdom of the Tao, Wayne Dyer
A Course in Miracles, Foundation for Inner Peace
Books on Deck:
Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life, Gregg Levoy
Eat, Love, Pray, Elizabeth Gilbert
Full Catastrophe Living, Jon Kabat-Zinn
A Million Little Pieces, James Frey
The Prospering Power of Love, Catherine Ponder
Undefended Love, J Psaris, M. Lyons
Forgive for Good, Dr. Fred Luskin
The Power of Collective Wisdom and the Trap of Collective Folly, Alan Briskin, et. al
When Things Fall Apart, Pema Chodron

It’s important to have a stack of yummy books waiting for your next round of bandwidth!!! Love it!! What books have inspired you? Are? Might?

Eat, Love, Pray

      Hi, Lorraine–Did you ever get a joy buddy? I had two and one flaked and the other we are getting one phone call in a month. That part was harder than I thought….anyway, I’m enjoying the course and wanting to design my own kind of wisdom imparting adventure real soon. Glad you enjoyed my blogs, raising the bar on doing them more often now!
