Yeah I read that book and it changed my life too. I always wanted to stick my finger up to society in terms of pressures to conform re doing a conventional 9-5 job, earning lots of money, buying a house etc, but I always had difficulty. This book gave me the courage to do what I really wanted to do and be an artist and only work part time. One of it's messages is "Make a life not a living" for spiritual happiness. :smile: It's a spiritual rather than religious book but it's mine and my partner's bible of sorts. Everyone in my partner's social circle and most of my social circle have read it.

i just finished reading the 3rd(not sure if it's a trilogy or not, there may have been one or 2 after it). It's a lot like the Castened series, imo, whether or not you take it as being true and/or divinely inspired it has some excellent philosophies about life and living in the moment, in the light as it were. You might also enjoy "The Power of NOW" by Echart Tolle as well which is all about living in the eternal moment. The CWG book i read dealt mainly with mankind's 10 most common illusions, and even sheds some light on how repressive/negative doctrinal ideas like judgement; hell, eternal damnation may have originated. As someone who as totally mind fucked by being raised Catholic i especially found this aspect of the book to be particularly enlightening :smile:

To all those lazy people out there saying maybe sometime, the time is now. These books will change you for the best, and once you get past the first couple pages it will go frrom a burden into a blessing. You wont be able to put them down.

"The book will change your life".... Sound not at all convincing , could you explain why please. Besides, why should I read it if I am an atheist? As I assume from the titel god is at least a central figure in the book, right?

Take it for what it is - A philosophical book with some abstract but very profound views on life. It is a very good read and at the very least will open your eyes up to a lot in the world.

i guess this would be an acceptable time to recommend my "bible". It is titled "The Celestine Prophecy". you can find it in many book stores. it is a book that shows life in another life and i HIGHLY recommend it if you are interested in learning about energy, what its effect on life is, intuition, and the spirit world. it teaches how to grow, but how to grow in your own way and not through a culturally accepted and established religion. again its name is "The Celestine Prophecy". it turned me around from an incredably depressed person who was always sad to a very happy and content person loving life. i still have my ups and downs, but without this book i wouldnt have ever gotten back up again. it fixed me in the length of summertime. if you have any questions about it send me a message. also there are books that come after it called "The Celestine Vision", "The Celestine Prophecy, an Experential Guide", and two others but the names have slipped my mind... look up the author, James Redfield and you will find his books.

Hey Freak! How've ya been? Today marks the end of my "Great Western Canadian Internet Hiatus." I got back from my little mountain village last week.

I've got that "Power of Now" of cassette upstairs, haven't listened to it yet. I've just today become absorbed in "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen R. Covey (it's already changing me and I'm only on the first one).

Since we're on the topic of life-changing books, I'd like to recommend a few:

The Four Agreements - Don Miguel Ruiz

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff - Richard Carlson

Wherever You Go, There You Are - Jon Kabat Zinn (holy crap I've recommended this book three times today)

These books totally changed the world for me, especially the last one. I recommend them all highly, especially for those who find life troubling.

Well there were lots of hot tubs, but saddeningly few women. It seemed like Panorama's population was about 75% male (*shudder*). There were probably about three resident females that were worth looking at. A lot of guests (I lived on a ski resort) brought their jailbait daughters though. Now that I'm back in the prairies I can't believe how many hot girlies there are here.

I'm about three hundred times better at snowboarding now though. Even if there were no women, I derived a level of satisfaction while powder riding that I would describe as almost sexual. When it snows 20 centimetres, it's like 4000 vertical feet of orgasm. Almost.

Glad yall didn't leave while I was gone! I was worried. Good to see ya.
