Did you know that the editorial of Eckard Tolle went to Bildererg 2008 before his leap into fame in oprha with "a new world"?

See the list by yourselve!

Hey Ashatav,

I don't understand, the power of now came out in 1999, I think but in any case a long time before this meeting in 2008.

How about

Gurdjieff; 'Beelzebub's Tales to his Grandson [All and Everything]

I have just received my new copy, having dipped into it many years ago.
It's a cracker.

Here's my youtube reference to Graham Greene's "The end of the affair"...great writing, spiritual in its own way, written during the war when consciousness was starting to rise as was indicated by the Mayan calendar...the lovers here did not find a happy ending....should we follow our heart as we head towards 2012 and the changes that are inevitable? Of course.

"i woke to a changed world, for a moment i was free of feeling, love, hate, jealousy, and it all felt like happiness..."

Is this how we will feel in 2012?

I'm not picking a book that 'changed my life', but I do want to tell you about the book I just finished reading this morning. I liked and would recommend reading.

"Crossing Over", by John Edward

I've seen his show quite a few times... hearing his story ''behind the stories' was very interesting. He talks about the 20-60-20 rule of metaphysical beliefs... 20% are firm believers... 60% are in the middle, can accept much, but also don't follow too closely, and the other 20% are absolute non believers.

After 22 years of helping society understand communications with spirits which have crossed over, John says for the past 5 or 6 years he's decided he wants to become the student instead of being a teacher, and he's studying Astrology. He has a new website here :http://www.johnedward.tv/ where he is offering information from a teacher by the name of Donna.

Hey all,

Discussing UFOs years ago with some guy at a bar which I seem to have known from somewhere. After a bunch of beers I asked this guy (American).. something to the effect why are they here (EBEs)?

He told me nothing more than to read a book of readings of Edgar Casey by some Author. Anyway if I remember correctly (it's been many years) the book was titled The River Sugai or Sugai River. Appx 280-300 pages 14" x 11"?

Anyway near the endof the book Casey had a reading in which someone asked about the destruction of mankind?
Casey, in a trance said, (paraphrased):

We are going to an evolution but also an evolution of world destruction. But their here, above us and will not allow mankind to destroy all mankind on this planet).

---

Yah, well that did it for me -- what are these things and why are they here?
It changed a lot of stuff in my life, including reading most of the Bible and coming to the realization...

RSF

EDIT: terrible spelling

I wrote a book about what changed my life, the first part is about some of my life experiences, the second part is a long list of books and websites. Here is the link: 21st Century Practical Spiritual Metaphysic Guide book for Atheist s & Agnostics

This is a guide book for the individual who has always shied away from all occult subjects, such as religion, magic, astrology, metaphysics, spiritual anything, and for the beginner into all of these subjects who wished to expedite his/her learning with the latest up to date information. It offers leads for the beginner interested in understanding the merger between science and the occult spiritual subjects, and a reference of where to get started in the search for the ultimate truth. This book also provides references of where to find up to date information, based on scientific evidence of what is going on with our planet earth, and what to expect in the coming years leading to December 21, 2012. This book provides scientific and practical ways of understanding the universe; TOOLS to help YOU LIVE life TO ITS FULLEST and with EXCELLENT HEALTH!!!

There are already many good books listed that I have enjoyed, so I thought I would add this jem:

Dune, by Frank Herbert

Fiction, but very well done. A story of humanity in the distant future.
The movie that was done was OK, but the book tells the whole story, and has many parallels to our own world, including the control the PTB can have over it's citizens.

love & peace

Aristotle - Nichomachean Ethics. I had spent a few teenage years figuring out my philosophy of life/morality/behaviour, read this at 17 and realised someone beat me to it

David Icke - The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World. I read this at 16, connotated tons of it and tried to get others to read it, didn't really work but I started to read conspiracy/alternative science books thereafter.

So good to see so many books I know listed. Books I'd like to know also ...

what book/s had the biggest effect on me?
probably;

Lobsang Rampa "The Hermit"

read this at age 13 or so. (1983) all his books were good for the time they were written.

several good sci fantasy novels during adolesence. "Heleconia Spring" opened my mind to "time" as well as one I cannot recall the name of but the centre of the universe was a large spider. Julian May "Many Coloured Land" don't know if this is spiritual but I loved it

Linda Goodman's "Star Signs" and "Love Signs" her clever and funny writing got me into astrology.
"The Astrologers Handbook" by Sakoian and Acker and any ephimeris..

Later on 1990's. Barbara Hand Clow "The Pleiadian Agenda"

Robert Lawlor "Voices of the First Day - awakening in the aboriginal dreamtime"

there are many books I have read and would like to read.

I would love to read any of the Billy Meier books
they are a bit harder to come by .

oh yes, here's another book that came along at exactly the right time....

Robin Sharma's "The Monk who sold his Ferrari".

I know the book is now over-hyped, but its still well worth a read. An easy, quick read, its about throwing up everything you had in your life and starting again.....which is what i did. The process of change is long and arduous though.....

When I was 14, that is 40 year ago, I suddenly realized that I was thinking in close looped patterns provided by the society I was living in. I went on a quest for different information: zen, Indian yogis, European mysticism and esotorism, New Age types of approach etc. Then got this book in my hand. I red half page and red it again, I only understood it half, but for me it was instantly clear: this man KNOWS. His name was Sri Aurobindo. It is still the same for me today, nothing I have ever read comes for me even close to the information and insight and certainty that this source provides, it is my paradigm and gives a clear perception to what is happening in the world today and events in the last century, including the 2 world wars in with SA and the Mother, his spiritual companion, involved themselves occultly.

Man is a transitional being; he is not final.
The step from man to superman is the next approaching achievement in the Earth's evolution.
It is inevitable because it is at once the intention of the inner Spirit and the logic of Nature's process.
-

A few lines from Savitri, a 24.000 line poem:

O Force-compelled, Fate-driven earth-born race,
O petty adventurers in an infinite world
And prisoners of a dwarf humanity,
How long will you tread the circling tracks of mind
Around your little self and petty things?...
A Seer, a strong Creator, is within,
The immaculate Grandeur broods upon your days,
Almighty powers are shut in Nature's cells.

Dreams, by Olive Schreiner.

At age 12 I came across this book in a rummage sale, it was a tiny leather bound booklet. One of the short stories called The Hunter, gave me some kind of epiphany. It was the story of a hunter who caught a glimpse of a white bird and became obsessed with finding it.

At age 7 I caught a glimpse of a white bird that put me into an altered cosmic state, and I wanted desperately to see it again. In the short story, the hunter is told his bird is called the white bird of truth, and in the end he is able to clutch one of it's feathers as he lays dying.
