Hi. I’m Wilbur, and here is my summer reading list of my top 7 recommendations for you’re consideration. I apologize for going over 5 but what can I say – I’m outta control, no rules here. I’m supposed to mention my favorite place to read, but lets just say it is alway important to me to have a book on me as often as possible. I’m that guy you see always reading a book in line.
1. The Untethered Soul by Michael A Singer.
This is among my top ten all-time spiritual/self help guides. It’s just so simply written and speaks right to your heart. It’s how to get control of that nagging and unproductive voice in your head and to unattach from it. The author teaches you how to stay spiritually “on path.” The suggestions offered are clear and I spend many readings using it as a daily inspiration.
2. Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls by Dr. Michael Newton
I learn something new every time I read these books so I should stop giving them away because it’s beginning to add up for me. This is Dr. Newton’s work on Hypno-Regression for more than 50 years. In 7,000 case studies, people who have never met are all describing the same experiences of Life Between Lives. These sessions are story-boarded, beginning with where we come from as souls and moving through how we live on the other side, gain our karma, choose our bodies, parents and lessons here on Earth and elsewhere – then return after death to our loved ones and Elders to grow from our lessons learned here in body. If this resonates with you then it is literally the book of how and why we do what we do.
3. Your Soul’s Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born by Robert Schwartz
This is a wonderful book on forgiveness. An incredible new way of perceiving our relationships with others and events around us that will “rewire” your brain on how we look at others and events we think have harmed us. There is no limitation on the other side so we come here to encounter limitation so we can grow beyond it. On the other side, loving souls plan these lessons with us – and out of love step forward to be those adversities and obstructions in our life to provide those pivotal moments and hardships to work through. All paths are sacred, there is no One Way.
4. Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright
I was literally jumping up and down sometimes with this book. WHAT ARE THEY THINKING!?! HOW CAN THEY DO THIS TO THEMSELVES!?! This book will really emotionally stir you up. It is part biography of L. Ron Hubbard, part expose on the beliefs and inner practices and structure of Scientology , and the personal stories of people trying to get out. I can’t describe this book to you without you’re thinking I’m making it all up. This book defies any rational thinking – and my views on spirituality are already considered pretty “out there.” This is a hard look at people undergoing some very difficult lessons.
5. An Atheist in the Foxhole by Joe Muto
This is the hysterical true story of Joe Muto, a typical liberal just-out-of-college kid, who as a fluke sent in a resume to Fox News Corp. – and ended up working for 8 years in the trenches of Fox News in NYC, eventually working on the O’Reilly Factor. The book alternates between Joe’s last day when he was finally booted and the story of how Fox News operates and Joe’s years inside, trying to fit in and learn to cope with his own feelings and the opinions of the Fox Network. This book is incredibly funny and informative.
6. Under Heaven and River of Stars by Guy Gavriel Kay
First of all, anything by Guy Gavriel Kay is outstanding. I’ve been very blessed to be reading him for years and these are his two newest books. Guy writes historical fiction of ancient China with a slight twist of spiritual fantasy. You are brought into the Imperial intrigue of “civilized” backstabbing, court politics, through a beautifully written love story with bandits, poets and military spectacle bent on bring down a Dynasty. Under Heaven is the first book but they can be read in any order. These really are my “fun” books of the summer.
