During these uncertain times, i have tried to read books and gain more and more knowledge. It has been wonderful reading again and closing the mind to all the chaos that is going on in the outside world.
I have read some beautiful books on Buddhism, mindfulness and meditation. I am a complete newbie in all these sectors however, are there any books you can recommend to help me see the beautiful word of spirituality and learn more about helping myself?
Hi Soul-searcher – I have read many self-help and Buddhism books over the years but recently I came across two books that have really helped me to come to terms with my traumatic childhood. They are both by Pete Walker ‘Complex PTSD’ and ‘The Tao of Fully Feeling’. Even if you don’t think you are suffering from PTSD, Pete Walker explains that anyone who has been through a traumatic childhood suffers from it to some extent.
I also highly recommend Louise Hay’s books. I have gone back to her books again and again. For me she is the Queen of self-help books.
Have you read any of Eckhart Tolle’s books? I would highly recommend those as well. You can watch his talks on youtube. I think he is definitely an ‘enlightened being’.
