Top Ten Spiritual Authors

Here is my list of top Spiritual Authors. I started to do a list of books and then realized there are way too many, so I will list the authors names and review why I like them so much. Creating a list like this is always difficult because invariably someone gets left out. So I encourage you to follow your intuition (gut,heart,etc. just not your head!) The author you most need to read depends on where you are on the path, so don’t take the ranking too seriously. I will list in order of my discovery.

First on the list is Ernest Holmes (Science of Mind). The Centers for Spiritual Living formally known as Religious Science Church sprang up around the teachings of this man. He did the logical thing and looked for the common thread in all the worlds religions and condensed it into his now famous book, Science of Mind. All his books are great and CSL has many other authors worth reading if this resonates with you.

Second on the list is Dr. Deepak Chopra. He has written so many books and most of them are wonderful, although he has become mainstream and a bit new agey. Wisdom is there if you look for it. His books helped me a lot in the beginning of my “Journey of Love”.

Third on the list is Dr. Wayne Dyer. Again he has written so many books with deep wisdom. I find his books are both practical and fun to read. A great place to start a Spiritual exploration.

Fourth on the list is Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God series. He is no doubt a master of the English language. A true wordsmith! I love reading from his perspective. These books are truly a gift to mankind!

Fifth on the list is James Twyman, an internationally renowned, best-selling author, filmmaker and musician who has a reputation for traveling to some of the world’s greatest areas of conflict, sharing his message of peace. He founded a contemporary version of the Beloved Community and has many creative works to share on the topic of Spirituality. In 2007 I was Ordained by him as a Spiritual Peacemaker and my life has never been the same. Blessings of Gratitude to him and all Spiritual Peacemakers.

Sixth on the list is Eckhart Tolle. He is famous for the “Power of Now” book published 1997. His teachings have blossomed since then and are well worth exploring. My favorite of his books is “A New Earth”.

Seventh on the list is Stephen Davis, Butterflies Are Free to Fly (free download online). Examines how quantum physics and recent scientific experiments are radically changing our understanding of life, our reality, and our spirituality. A mind blowing book! The part I like most is how it explores identity and who is the “I”.

Eighth on the list is Gary Renard. His books on ACIM (A Course in Miracles) are the best I have found. He explains the principles in a clear and easy to digest manner. There simply is no better teacher of ACIM, although I will mention Kenneth Wapnick who Gary calls the greatest teacher of ACIM ever.

Ninth on the list is The Law of One – 5 book series, The Teachings of Ra. These books are the product of L/L Research and abundant material is available on their website to explain it all. The books are free to download. I will not try to explain it and simply encourage you to read them and find the deep wisdom within.

Tenth on the list is ACIM (A Course in Miracles), the direct channelings of Jesus. This course is pure non-dualism and a bit much for many who are not ready to give up duality. If you feel you are, then by all means do this course and understand this is for the rest of your life! It is not a casual teaching which makes you feel good for a time. It will change your life for good, there is no going back.

Perhaps you will see a trend here as many of these authors teach ACIM to some degree. Know there is no One Truth above all else, there is only that which leads home! All paths lead home and the good news is you cannot fail. Some routes are more “scenic” than others though.

Blessings on your Journey of Love!

Everything Has A Reason

Everything has a reason and purpose in life including pain, suffering, discrimination, bullying, inequality, and any negative you can imagine.  Besides just balancing the positive, negative experiences serve Spiritual growth and collective learning.  As the saying goes, it takes two to tango and you cannot experience loss without someone else volunteering to take it from you, or how about prejudice?  Most of us have been on both ends of this, how else can we muster the compassion to forgive?

Who are we to deny these experiences our fellow man?  Would you prevent another from learning their lessons?  There is no way to stay neutral.  I already tried that.  The only thing you can do is go with the flow by listening to your inner voice without judgment and do what you must.  It is not about being right or wrong, because once again we are all going to experience both and the more you focus on one the more out of balance you become and the more drastic the experience gets.   Instead focus on the message the experience offers.  Like a message in a bottle, every experience carries a gift!

We live in a Free Will zone (earth) so this means we all have free will and make our own decisions.  Imposing your will on others is a violation of the Law of One thus polarizing your energy in the negative.  There are two types of people on earth, those who live to serve others and those who live to serve the self.  The first is positive polarity and the other is negative.  Neither is right or wrong, however each has a path.  The service to self path is the scenic route to God, while the service to others path leads straight home.  The choice is yours, and mine…each person gets to make this choice.

There are certain paradigms for learning and growth.  Earth is in the 3rd Dimension, Density or Dualistic Paradigm.  For every up there is down, hot leads to cold, pain to pleasure, and sweet to sour.  Once our lessons are learned we move on to another.  Eventually our growth reaches a point of completion for that paradigm so we jump to the next.  We grow out of these things on a personal level, like a passenger on a bus riding through town.  This also works on a collective basis, so this is what planet earth just experienced.  A shift to a higher consciousness or the next paradigm, 4th Density or Unity!

The next time you think about protesting or advocating against something like slavery, discrimination, crime, or other inequality remember the Law of One.  There are no victims, only volunteers!  Be grateful for ALL the gifts you receive, even the ones which most consider “bad or undesirable”.   Forgive and forget!  Be the observer and witness your life while you are living it.  It takes a little practice, and it works like this, allow yourself to do what you will and at the same time move your conscious awareness outside of your body. The tools used for this practice are will power and imagination.  Try it while you are resting or sitting still as this is a good place to start.  Let go of any expectations or judgments and accept that it is all GOOD.
