I spoke at a meeting a few weeks back and talked about my spiritual reading list and about 10 people asked me after the talk to give them a copy. So, I thought I would post it on the blog. The highest you will ever get in life is to be enlightened and to become “awake.” The thing about spirituality is it works. It works like magic and it will take away all of your problems.
People laugh at me all the time for being so spiritually woo woo but I don’t care. I’ve never met one happy person who hasn’t had a strong connection to their higher power. I however have met a lot of unhappy people who have no connection whatsoever. I want to be happy and have a conscious contact with my higher power at all times. These books along with the steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and the Big Book helped me and are helping me develop a strong spiritual practice so I can walk in the sunlight of the spirit.
Hope you enjoy and become awakened too.
