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
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.

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.
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.
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.
Why Materialism Is Baloney
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
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
