    I can say a few books I read as a young lad really changed my whole outlook, and affirmed for me that I was not alone in the world
    and my thinking was not aberrant or 'weird'
    1.1984-George Orwell
    2.Lord Of The Rings Trilogy-J.R.R Tolkein
    3.Eyeless In Gaza-Aldous Huxley
    4.Thus Spake Zarathustra-Friedrich Nietzsche

    I love reading and picking one book is difficult. Many of the books I love harmonise with my own view-point so I cannot say they changed things for me, they just affirmed opinions I already have, or had.

    However a long time ago 'The Silent Spring', and later 'The Coming Global Superstorm', along with Tim Slattery's books really changed my view of the world, its resources and the way we seem to not understand that such resources are finite. From not giving such things much thought these books , and also some others, have changed my thinking on such things for the better. Books can do that!

    P.S. 'Eyeless in Gaza'--- now that's a book!

    The Christ Commission, by Og Mandino

    OBE, remote viewing, time travel, Bi-location. Everything in one small package.

    Changed? A different choice.

    ONE: Richard Bach
    I quote:

    “Have you ever felt so at one with the world, with the universe, with everything that is, that you were overcome with love? That is reality. That is the truth. What we make of it is up to us, as the painting of the sunrise is up to the artist. In our world humanity has strayed from that love. It lives hatred and power struggles and manipulations of the earth itself for its own narrow reasons. Continue and no one will see the sunrise. The sunrise will always exist, of course, but people on earth will know nothing of it and finally even stories of its beauty will fade from our knowing.”
    ― Richard Bach, One

    Bravo!! Yes, Excellent choice. When I read it, I was in a strange daze. I thought that I had somehow wrote it,, my mind was racing with all of the same nuances... I was 9 or 10....

    The one book that changed everything for me was Jonathan Livingston Seagull.... (Same Author) John Gull became part of my soul... Then I 'read' Illusions.... I couldn't stop laughing, with a great, joyfull tickle!!!

    Jonathon Livingston Seagull was required reading in mee home. I, still,, cannot listen to the Soundtrack without crying my eyes out.... !!!

    I have lots of favorite books, but Jonathon Livingston Seagull changed everything for me!!!

    Excellent topic.

    The Journey of Souls by Michael Newton. I was in the process of awakening when I first read it four years ago and after it things started to make sense and my eyes were open. Then a year or two after it I read Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now. After that book I just felt that something happened with my awareness and many fears and delusions dissolved.

    The third eye by Lobsang Rampa (& all of his books)
    The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot
    The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield
    Communion by Whitley Strieber

    All these books helped my awakening, stretched my consciousness, and changed my perspective about who am I, what's reality in this and other dimensions and planes of existence, and my relationship to God.

    could i ask everyone who posts from now on to state how and why these books changed their life. i think that will not only help us understand what the book is about it but how also you were changed personally by it
    thanks
