My favorite thing to do is read. try to read a book every day, if I have the time.
Since recently, I’ve been reading a lot of different spiritual books, which can be a little scary. Books about death, the ego, finding your place in the world, and transcending your old self are some of the topics that these books deal with in a very deep way.
Despite how difficult they are to read, spiritual books are some of the best books you could ever read.
They will teach you great life lessons that have been passed down from wise people in the past. They will help you better understand yourself and your world, and they will give you a sense of satisfaction (if you internalize them).
So, without further ado, here are my top five spiritual books that will help you become a better person.
Power vs. Force
This book was recommended to me by a spiritual guru who lives in a small town near the Shenandoah Valley. It has the power to make the world a better place.
Premise: Power is not force. But it has a huge impact on the world.
It’s like trying to row across the ocean with your oars pulled out. A man who just adjusts his sail goes by you quickly. Force is like this: The man who changes his sail He knows how to use power.
In order to be powerful, you have to align your energy with the universe, accept reality as it is, and even love it! You don’t fight it, but you try to change it. Force is when you fight against reality and try to change it.
Even though these ideas are very simple, they have a lot of important applications and consequences.
One of the best spiritual books ever written, or at least one of the best, is “The Way.”
On top of that, Power vs. Force talks about different “levels of consciousness,” which David Hawkins ranks on the scale from 1 to 1000. Christ-Consciousness, or 1,000 level consciousness, has only been reached by a very small number of people in history. People like Buddha, Krishna, and Jesus have found a way to be more aware.
Hawkins says that most people live around “level 205.” As you go up the scale, however, you become more powerful and have better ideas. They were all at “level 499,” which is where Einstein, Beethoven, and Nietzsche were. No, I don’t think so.
The author also says that his book raises the “level of consciousness” of each person who reads it by about 10-15 points, which is a lot because most people only move up 5 points in their whole lives.
Hawkins has a hard time understanding what good and bad are in the world, as well as the different mindsets, or “levels of consciousness,” that fight each other. For example, the book has a chart that shows how different levels of consciousness affect the world.
One person who is at the level of 300 makes as much positive change in the world as 90,000 people who are below 200 make bad changes. One person at level 400 counterbalances 400,000 people at level 200. One person at the level of 700 can balance out 70 million people who are below 200.
The power of spiritual awakening is shown in this way. One fully spiritually awakened person can change the course of reality for the rest of time.
Because this is hard to understand, I suggest that you buy this book and let David Hawkins, who is very clever, explain it to you. However, be careful. It’s probably one of the most in-depth spiritual books out there. Over 400 pages of very dense philosophy and discussion are in this book. But, if you can get through it, it will change your life.
“Being able to deal with an emotional crisis leads to more wisdom and long-term benefits.” When people are afraid of life, they’re really afraid of their emotions, not their life itself. We don’t fear the facts, but how we feel about them. As soon as we learn to control our emotions, we don’t have as much fear of living. -David Hawkins says that. Doctor: Power vs Force
The Way of the Superior Man
This is a must-read for any man who wants to improve himself. It gives you a way to think about relationships, purpose, your job, and your life. You can be sure that it’s one of the best spiritual books of all time! (specifically for men).
Having this book changed my life because it made me focus on what I wanted to do instead of what I wanted to look like.
A lot of people don’t agree with this idea, and that’s fine. In order for society to work, we need a lot of men who don’t have a plan. They’re the guys who are flipping burgers, filing papers, and doing other unfulfilling jobs at work.
That’s not you. You’re not on this blog to live a meaningless life. You’re here to improve your life and live a more fulfilling one, not to live a meaningless life.
The Way of the Superior Man says that you should put your masculine goals above everything else. People who don’t have a masculine purpose are going to have a bad time in their lives (as you can see by looking at 99 percent of men).
… but before your wife? It doesn’t make sense that she’s not your sunshine, your rainbows, your sweetheart, and the love of your life. A chode would say that. No, that’s not true. Yes, you’re supposed to love her, but doing so means that you have to be a man on your own terms. Women can tell when a man is weak, doesn’t have a spine, and doesn’t have a goal. And they don’t like it.
The reason why women like men who work hard and do what they love is because they want to be with them. Actors, musicians, celebrities, business owners, athletes, and so on all have a social proof element to them.
He might not be known to the girl, but I’m sure that even if she didn’t know who he was, she’d still be attracted to him because she can sense that he’s on a goal. He moves, talks, and acts in ways that she can tell.
He doesn’t waste time, he’s not a jellyfish bitch, and he’s a man who acts and makes decisions based on who he is.
He is a real person.
If you’re having problems with your relationships, I think you should read The Way of the Superior Man. It talks a lot about how male and female spirituality work together in a relationship. As far as spiritual books go, this is one of the best ones.
Women who love you the most are the women who will put you through the most stress. She wants you to be your best self. She won’t settle for less. You are true to her. He or she knows that in your heart, you are free, and that you are Shiva. Anything less than that will make her angry. I know she’s good at it. It’s called “The Way of the Superior Man” by David Deida.
The Dharma Bums
There are so many good things in this book even though it’s more of a story than an informational guide. The story takes place in the 1950s, when a young boy grows tired of society and its desire to crush the spirit out of every living person.
In time, he becomes unhappy with his life and decides to hitchhike all over the United States, especially along the West Coast, to get away from it all. As he goes, he meets a lot of people who he likes, like Japhy and Henry. “Princess” is a young blonde-haired nymphomaniac who loves tantric sex.
Among the things I learned from this book is the value of living. The author, who plays Ray in this book, doesn’t know what’s going to happen. When will he eat again? If he dies tomorrow or lives to be 100, he doesn’t know yet.
That’s not what he knows, though. He wants to be free. To him, it’s very clear that society is sick, and he wants to leave.
We also get a glimpse into the life of a vagabond, a man who wanders through nature without a care in the world. On this long journey, we see the caves of Northern California and the beaches of Southern California.
I think this book has a lot of things in common with Ralph Waldo Emerson’s work. They both have a sense of how small man can feel when he’s out in the world. A lot of things happen when you look at trees and listen to the birds chirp. You can also see a lot of trees and a lot of forest all around you.
If you are a man who is afraid of living, I think you should read The Dharma Bums. If you want to learn about adventure, Buddhism, and the beauty of life in a spiritual way, this is one of the best books out there.
It will show you how important it is to live life to the fullest, take risks, and have fun. Will teach you about friendship and how important it is to let go. It will also give you a great look at the philosophy that led to the 1960’s revolution.
You might say that you felt like lying on the trail and remembering it all. When you’re in the woods, you always feel like you’ve been there before. They always look familiar, long lost, like the face of a dead relative, like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water. Most of all, they look like golden eternities of past childhood or past manhood, and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to confirm this feeling by their own lonesome familiarity. The Dharma Bums is a book by Jack Kerouac, who wrote it.
“Male Psychology” would be a good place to put this book, but it’s also one of the best spiritual books out there and I think it should be in this article because it’s so good.
Even though the book is based on Carl Jung’s theory of the archetypes, it is very spiritual. There is a twist: The book tells the story of Iron John, an old Eastern European folktale, but there is a twist. Each important event in Iron John’s life can be looked at through a spiritual or psychological lens. Robert Bly talks a lot about these topics and how they relate to a man coming of age in his book.
People who read this book think that men need to get in touch with their “Wild Man,” or their “primal masculinity.”
This is a position that I agree with 100%.
The story starts with a young boy and follows him into adulthood. It looks at the psychological and spiritual changes he makes as a boy, and many of the problems he has are very familiar to men.
In the beginning of the book, there are mysterious disappearances of hunters in a forest near the king’s castle. I won’t give away too much because I want you to enjoy the book itself. After a lot of deaths, a clever hunter is finally able to catch the creature that was killing people.
This animal, which is a symbol of the Wild Man, is locked away because he is afraid. The queen has the key to his cage.
Enter Iron John, who is a young boy at this time. He is going to fight.
As he plays with his golden ball, he accidentally lets it fall into the cage of the Wild Man. “Give me my ball!” John yells. No, the Wild Man says.
After denying the Wild Man freedom two times, the boy finally gets tough and decides to steal the key from his mother. This is what happens. In the forest, the Wild Man will teach him how to be a man. He gets his golden ball back.
A lot of attention could be paid to this first part of the story, and Bly does just that! I’ll give a quick review, though.
John lives in the “mother world,” which is the world where emotions, intuition, and sensitivity rule the roost. This is where John is. In the past, boys were often taken away from their mothers when they were 8 years old and made into men. This is true for everyone.
John is afraid of becoming a man, but most young boys are too. Being a man means being brave, making decisions, being assertive, and having a lot of hard-to-learn skills. This is why he doesn’t accept the Wild Man’s offer.
Finally, though, it is time for him to become a man. He must steal the key from his mother. This is a way to show that becoming a man is often a fight against the “mother world.” In order for mothers to keep their babies boys as boys for as long as possible, they want to smother them with love and affection. In the past, I’ve seen a Jewish mother kiss her son on the forehead, then pinch his cheek. Then that’s what she’s been up to.
Getting the key from his mother isn’t a coincidence. To let out his Wild Man, John has to break away from the world he lives in. Until we stand up and show that we are men, they will not respect us, and we will not be men.
To show that he’s not afraid to be himself, John steals the key from his mother and lets loose the Wild Man. This is where his journey to becoming a man starts.
This is only a short summary of the first part of the story, so if you want to read the whole thing and get the full story and psychological/spiritual analysis, I think you should buy the book.
“I think it’s a great book for people who want to learn more about God” (especially for men trying to discover their masculinity).
In order for the Wild Man to be fully alive, he doesn’t have to be “natural,” go with the flow, smoke weed, read nothing, and be generally groovy. Instead, he has to do things that aren’t “natural.” Euphoria comes from being close enough to the high voltage that comes with the golden gifts to enjoy them all the time. The ecstasy comes after thought, after rules we make for ourselves, and after sadness. “Iron John: A Book about Men,” by Robert Bly.
