Ive recently started reading rules for radicles and so far its pretty mind blowing. It caught my eye at a thrift store and it seemed interesting but I had no idea that it would be so inspirational

Saving this thread.
Tao of Physics is a good one- wholeness and the implicate order by bohm is still on the shelf unread.
I love the alchemist and a similar one Siddhartha by herman hesse.

Audible for the win. Can even speed it up. Listen to a while book in a few cycle commutes. Knowledge straight into my ear holes

Rules for Radicals has workable techniques, however be advised that these disruptive techniques are "agnostic". By that I mean any "cause" can use them, for good or ill. Read how Hitler rose to power and you will see what I mean.

I have long loved Bill Murray's movie version of The Razor's Edge, and have the Tyrone Power version in my video collection as well.   When I learned that my master's master's master, Ramana Maharshi, was W. Somerset Maugham's inspiration for the holy man in the mountains, I had to read the book, which I did early this year. 

 

Tuftygrasses, check out this link and poke around the links in this guy's interesting story.   I grew up in SoCal, not far from many places this touches upon.   The secret Larry Darrell was to discover in India has not been lost to time.    It remains ever new, and old, for the truth seeker.

Maybe not in this lifetime, but maybe in ten thousand.   One gets there, following the heart.  When the heart says so, it's time to find the timeless.
