The Greatest Books For Mastering Life

Must-reads are at the top of the list and are indicated by 5 stars. The list is updated monthly so make sure to check back for new additions.

Conversations with God, Books 1-3

Neale Donald Walsch

As of today, these first 3 books of the CwG series are the greatest books I've ever read in my life. Within them, the author (Neale) has a direct and casual conversation with God (Yes you read that right). He asks every deep question a human can have about life, and every answer God gives is even more incredible. A must read.


The Book of Not Knowing

Peter Ralston

This is one of the most foundational books you can ever read on consciousness, mind, and reality. If you have no idea where to start with spiritual / consciousness work, start here. This book will be an absolute game changer to how you experience reality and life. Peter Ralston will blow your mind wide open in this one.

The Doors of Perception, Heaven And Hell

Aldous Huxley

Huxley was a true mystic with the ability to see the divine in life and an even better ability at communicating it through the written symbols we call words. Even though both these books - The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell were written in the 50’s, his takes on culture and society at large were intellectually evolved and mentally fascinating, with an uncanny accuracy of predicting the future and telling the story of how humans were, are, and will be. A great read.


Conversations with God, Book 4

Neale Donald Walsch

Another great book from the Conversations with God series. It has a slightly different flavor than the first 3 books, and was written almost 20 years later. In this one, God explains to Neale how HEB's (Highly Evolved Beings) exist all across the universe, and how humanity can model itself after them... A great read.


Falling Into Grace


A beautiful and pure book on Spiritual Awakening from one of my favorite teachers, Adyashanti. Within this book Adya shares insights on suffering and how we perpetuate it, the function of grace on our spiritual journey, and many more profound pointers. This book will definitely open you into a state of receptiveness. A great read.


Being Myself

Rupert Spira

This book comes from Rupert Spira, one of my favorite modern day Non-Dual teachers. With an emphasis on simple and direct pointers, Rupert easily guides you to recognize the infinite and boundless nature of your consciousness. A great read.


Love, Freedom, Aloneness


In a sort of loosey-goosey and unstructured fashion, this book delivers amazing insights from the controversial Indian mystic, Osho. You may not like him, but his wisdom was indeed profound. In this book he offers guidance on money, sex, relationships, and more. It'll definitely open your mind. A great read.


Resurrecting Jesus


This is a beautiful overview from Adyashanti on the life of Jesus. In the book, Adyashanti does a great job of guiding you through the story of Jesus without any religious baggage. He gets straight to the heart and soul of the story of Jesus and what his life truly represented in terms of Awakening and Consciousness. A great read.


The Power of Now

Eckhart Tolle

Now a modern day classic, The Power of Now is one of the most common and beginner-friendly books when it comes to spirituality and spiritual enlightenment. I first read this book when I was a teenager, and it produced a profound awakening within me. A great read.


Become What You Are

Alan Watts

In this one, Alan Watts guides you in a very playful and eloquent way (as he always does) to deep understandings and profound truths of Reality. The book isn't very big, just over a hundred pages, but it sure does pack a punch. A great read.


Why Materialism Is Baloney

Bernardo Kastrup

An awesome book from a computer engineer on the nature of reality and consciousness. In this book Bernardo points out the massive flaws of the modern metaphysical understanding, materialism. He then argues why the only reasonable metaphysics is idealism, or as we know it here: everything is consciousness. A great read.


I Am That

Nisargadatta Maharaj

A Q&A style book of students asking the Indian sage, Nisargadatta Maharaj, questions on the topics of Self-Inquiry and Enlightenment. As you can imagine, the answers Nisargadatta gives come right from the source itself and are powerful enough you may just have an Awakening while reading this book. A great read.


Mastering The Core Teaching of The Buddha

Daniel Ingram

One of the best books I've ever read on meditation and how to actually practice it. Inside, Daniel Ingram gives you everything you need to understand meditation: the various maps, the states of mind you will encounter, the cycles of insight, and the differences between concentration and insight practices. A great read.


The Alchemist

Paulo Coelho

I don't usually read fiction, but this is a beautiful story about walking the path of true purpose in life, the synchronicities that happen when you do so, and how "The Universe conspires in your favor" when you follow you heart. A great read.


The Wisdom of Insecurity

Alan Watts

This is a solid book from Alan Watts where he conveys one of the main insights and core pillars of spiritual work with grace and nuance: that there is no separate "I", and that experience is a unified whole. He synthesizes religion, metaphysics, science, and eastern thought into one comprehensive picture. A good read.


Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender

David R. Hawkins

This is more of a technical / scientific book but still very powerful. Within the book, Dr. Hawkins teaches you how to use the technique of "Letting go" to Awaken. He also takes you through a very detailed explanation of all of the emotions, what they mean, and what level of consciousness each emotion aligns to. A good read.


Becoming Supernatural

Dr. Joe Dispenza

In this book Dr. Joe gives a comprehensive and scientific-backed approach to spirituality, and more specifically: meditation.  He shows multiple case studies and extremely detailed research on how tuning into the "quantum field" can heal you, change your physiology, and radically transform your experience of life. A good read.


If Truth Be Told

Om Swami

This is a first-hand account of a Monk's life and spiritual journey. From a young business man making loads of money to renouncing the world and going to the Himalayans to meditate and find Truth, this memoir is really the classic story of a spiritual journey. What makes it even cooler is it actually happened. A good read.


Just So

Alan Watts

Based on a series of seminars Alan Watts gave, this book is filled with all of the classic Alan Watts style insights. From money, to materialism, to life as a whole, Alan Watts provides illuminating wisdom that is sure to strike a chord within you. A good read.


On The Mystery of Being

Zaya & Maurizio Benazzo

This is a really cool book that gathered many leaders from both the fields of science and spirituality, and had them all write a chapter with their thoughts on Existence, Life, & Reality. Each passage opens your mind and shows you just how many ways the human mind can think about this stuff. A good read.


The Science of Enlightenment

Shinzen Young

From stories of his time being a monk in Japan, to his modern day scientific testing on meditative states, this down-to-earth explanation of meditation from the master Shinzen Young will definitely help you on your meditation journey. A good read.
