There are, according to google, 129 million books in existence.
However, it takes just 1 to change a life.
Books have the potential to unlock new perspectives, new outlooks on life.
Our lives are impacted and shaped through the information passed down through books written by successful individuals – they are the ultimate tool for potential power – through knowledge.
“Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.”
depending on our stage in life (level of understanding), the impact certain books have on us will vary.
This is a list of 5 books that had a profound impact on my life – there is no guarantee the impact will be the same for everyonen, but I believe they should be essential reading for anyone chasing personal freedom and higher states of living:
Eckhart Tolle has had a huge influence on my life and many others, his popularity continues to grow through his teachings of “presence” and “stillness” which are transforming the lives of people across the globe.
“A New Earth” propelled me in the direction of greater spiritual awareness, and understanding – It helped me to grasp the idea of “ego”, and realise our primary purpose in life: to transcend the self-imposed limitations of the ego.
I will continue to recommend this book to people regardless of their level of spiritual understanding, I know at some point this book has the power to impact people the same way it did to me; It should be read more than once.
Letting go is a pathway to surrender.
David Hawkins beautifully describes the power of surrender as the ultimate path to freedom and fulfillment. The mechanisms of letting go presented in his book I found to be extremely practical and applicable to all areas of my life.
Letting go is a method of liberation from the obstacles to enlightenment, through progression toward advanced states of awareness.
I recommend the audio version of this book – which can be downloaded through audible – listening to these teaching had a greater impact on my level of understanding (of spiritual practices) and applying them to my life.
Without doubt, this book has the power to help people transcend limiting beliefs, and evoke greater levels of personal freedom.
This book made me love fat…the good fat.
It not only changed the way I think about fat, it gave me a whole new perspective on food and what it means to eat healthy.
My energy levels sky rocketed, I put on lean muscle, I no longer had food cravings, and got to drink delicious bulletproof coffee every morning.
Diet and nutrition is the foundation for optimal performance in life.
We can’t expect to be performing our best without giving the body optimal fuel. The Bullet Proof Diet breaks down the “super-foods” that body loves, while identifying the kryptonite foods that should be avoided.
This is essential reading for anyone looking to upgrade their energy, lose weight, and improve overall health.
Who would have thought adding butter to everything could be this good.
This book has been instrumental in helping me understand the true essence of self – I refer back to it constantly.
The Untethered Soul looks at the thinking mind, it shows clearly the false association we make – incorrectly associating our true self with the thoughts in our head.
When we realise this we can step back and observe the mind, become the spectator, and not allow life to be narrated by the analytical interpreter in our head.
Michael A. Singer helped me realise who I am, by showing me what I’m not.
I recommend the audio version for this one. I find the words to have greater impact when they are spoken – they open the gateway to the soul.
This book is powerful, and applicable to current times. It illuminates fundamental spiritual lessons and how they can be applied in life today.
Vishan is living proof of the enormous potential living a spiritual life can offer. This book gives a modern take on how to live a spiritual life, particularly in today’s world where there is infinite opportunity to manifest whatever life we desire.
Vishan provides the blue print to fast tracking success with fulfilment. He teaches us the path to greatness and shows how to enjoy every step of the way.
Essential reading for the modern day state shifter.
