Spirituality...Be Here Now and Conversations With God probably had the biggest impact on me. Ishmael was another one, although it's not really "spiritual" in the sense of the other two. "The Book" by Alan Watts is also good.

Drugs..Doors of Perception, Food of the Gods. Both good reads.

I haven't read many, but I recently finished "Opium: A History" by Martin Booth. Very informative and gives a good recount of, well, the history of opium and its current place in our society. Jumps back and forth between time alot and lags a bit in the middle, but overall pretty good.

I enjoyed those two as well. Also
The Celestine Prophecy: An Adventure by James Redfield. Content and ideas are good but plot and writing style leave something to be desired.

The Return of Merlin by:Deepak Chopra I would like to read some more of his stuff.

I am now reading
Siddhartha by Herman Hesse So far so good. I think I see where it is going and I would agree... A true seeker cannot accept the teachings of anyone else, he must find the answers in his/her own way/time.


As for drug books, I haven't really gone there except for reading parts of LSD; my problem child.

1) Nothing in This Book Is True, but It's Exactly How Things Are
2) Something in This Book Is True
3) You Are a Spiritual Being Having a Human Experience
-Bob Frissell
All Three of these titles are by Bob Frissell. I have read the first book and part of the second however I have been told by many people the three go great together, which is why I decided I mine as well post the names of all three. The first book touches heavily on human consciousness, evolution, higher forms of life, Merkaba meditation, and also dabbles into some sacred geometry. It gives a pretty decent background on all these topics and kind of gives you a starting point for spirituality. This book opens you up to many new ideas, if your accepting.
Bob Frissell teaches a workshop with Drunvalo Melchizedek (highly reguarded for his work in spirituality, especially with the Merkaba meditation) called the Flower Of Life workshop which focuses on Merkaba meditation techniques which encompasses sacred geometry. If you would like anymore information on this workshop or if their are any workshops coming up locally check out this page: Http://www.floweroflife.org

I very much encourage the reading of any of aldous huxley's book not just the one related to drugs and drug use. often drugs are not the point of his message but drugs are an easy way to progress the human population through it spirtual benifits. By no means is he encouraging the abuse and adiction of phycotropics for that in its very essense would be a regress in society. Drugs in abuse and adiction is just another crutch for a weak mind such as most religion and relationships are. Any how thats enough, try and read his books there all great.
peace

Chris,
I concur that Aldous Huxley has quite a few grand pieces of work. Although I disagree with your statement about psychoactive abuse.. I dont believe that excess use is due to a weak mind.. I could see how their mind set could add to the equation though, for example I personally used ethanol a tad more then I should have because I wasnt in a meaningful relationship with a reciprocating female.. Qu? sera, I know that was a poor excuse and have changed my lifestyle a great deal after becoming good friends with a few smart eccentric girls.

Peace be with you

Sleep? That word sounds familiar, but I've personally never experienced it.  :blush:

I recommend highly Power vs. Force: The hidden determinants of Human Behavior by Dr. David R. Hawking. Supposedly he has a new one out called Eye of the I I havent read yet. If anyone has post or PM me on how it is.
As for drug books, Huxley's Essays and Island (not based around drugs though.) takes the cake for me, but I'd prefer to sink into an 8 hour terence McKenna lecture I downloaded off of Soulseek.
