Anything from Ralph Waldo Emerson or Henry David Thoureau. "Walden", By Thoureau, is one of my all time favorite essays.

i read harry potter 6. it was the best book so far. i seriously think that someone "co wrote it". either that or someone told jk rowling something that scared her into writing pretty well.

I FINALLY read "The Celestine Prophecy" after it's been recommended to me like 100 times. It was very good and easy to read. I usually read very academic stuff. This did have alot of big concepts in it, but it's presented in a very easy to digest fictional story.

Still trying to figure out what to read next. I've got stacks of books calling my name.

 

* And I've also got some dap for Siddhartha. That book was like one of my first experiences with eastern philosophy and it changed my life. Seriously.

Yeah a friend of mine is supposed to loan that to me. I also forgot the name of it strangely enough. Some really awesome concepts.... I was already familiar with alot of them but the way it's presented and organized is really amazing.

For instance, I was already familiar with the exclusion principle in physics, but how it's presented there as the underlying energy of all things that can conform to our will just blew me away. lol The way I had it in my head before was like, oh yeah neato, quantum physicists have discovered that these tiny subparticles can be altered by observation.... And I'd heard some theories about parallel realities spun off from this.... Just the way it's presented in the book is awesome.

All nine of those insights were very relevant and realistic.
