 Blue Arrow.gif (140 bytes)  The Power of Now, A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
by Eckhart Tolle / Hardcover / Published 1999 / Price: $13.77
On of the most powerful and relavant books on spiritual growth and centering into inner peace. Tolle reveals that authentic human power is found by surrendering to the Now. He uses simple yet profound language to point out that we are so much more than our egoic mind, that the past is over and the future does not yet exist.  By accessing the portals of silence and the body we can gain entry to Now, the present moment, where peace abounds, problems do not reside and health abounds.  This is very powerful and essential reading.

 Blue Arrow.gif (140 bytes)  Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting, The Astonishing Power of Feeling
by Lynn Grabhorn
/ Paperback / Published 1999 / Price: $8.97
The simple clarity of this book and its very powerful message makes it a must read.  I was very impressed how it takes the core concepts of many philosophies and distills them down to a very powerful and practical message: tuning into ones feelings and using clear intent about our wants and dreams empowers us to create the life we desire for ourselves.  The book is written in a very personal and upbeat way that makes it a delight to read.  Non-dogmatic it is a great resource  for assuming ones personal authority through the conscious awareness and direction of our personal power.

 Blue Arrow.gif (140 bytes)  The Four Agreements, A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
by Miguel Ruiz
/ Paperback / Published 1997 / Price: $10.36
Using contemporary wordage Don Miguel Ruiz teaches the powerful truths behind the ancient Toltec teachings from pre-Columbian America. The four agreements extol us to be impeccable with your word, don't take any thing personally, don't make assumptions, and always do your best.  These simple precepts are keys for inner strength and for healing the self-limiting beliefs rob us of our joy and create needless suffering.

Beyond Fear, A Toltec Guide to Freedom & Joy: The teachings of Don Miguel Ruiz
by Mary Carrol Nelson, don Miguel Ruiz
Fear is the source of all of the negative agreements we've made with life. It can alienate us from the joy that is our birthright. When we are able to look at our lives without fear or judgments, we realize that reality can be whatever we want it to be. Beyond Fear leads seekers of the Toltec way of freedom and joy on their spiritual journey into a state of empowerment.
More expansive and in-depth than The Four Agreements, Beyond Fear contains information on life after death, prophecies about the evolution of humanity, and exercises and ceremonies to walk readers through the process of shedding fear and becoming spiritually and emotionally alive.  This book changed my life for I actually went to the ruins of Teotehuacán in Mexico and enacted the ritual prescribed.

The author focuses on the importance of making life choices that lead to greater fulfillment. What she urges repeatedly with this book is for people to return to the activities that have brought them the most joy in the past.

This is a powerful and yet simple reminder to love ourselves and follow our inner voice towards fulfillment and hapiness.

 Blue Arrow.gif (140 bytes)   The Little Soul and the Sun
by Neale Donald Walsch,  Frank Riccio (Illustrator)
/Hardcover / Published 1998 / Price: $12.57

This story distills the essential message of the Conversations with God books and sews it into a story that even children can identify with. Frank Riccio's poignant illustrations are the perfect companion to Walsch's parable of a little soul who discovers that it is "the light" but still wants to know how it "feels" to be the light. This proves to be a problem, as God created nothing else but the light. God's solution, with the help of another soul, is to surround the little soul with darkness, so that it can feel what being the light is like. This deceptively simple tale of self-discovery carries such a profound message that adults as well as children will read it over and over, each time learning a little more about who we really are and why we are here on earth.

Old Turtle
by Douglas Wood, Cheng-Khee Chee (Illustrator) / Hardcover / Published 1992 / Price: $12.57

The wise old turtle ends the argument: God is all these things, and more. She also makes a prediction: ``There will soon be a new family of beings'' who will be reminders of what God is. However, the people in turn begin to argue about God, and also to harm the rest of creation. Then the ocean, the breeze, and even the stars remind them of God's presence and love, and in time the people begin to listen.

All I See Is Part of Me
