"Journey to Ixtlan" by Castaneda or "Deliverance" by James Dickey. Both are thought provoking, intense reads.

"The Seven Mysteries of Life " by Guy Murchie is one of my favorites.


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

True Hallucinations-Terence McKenna....anything McKenna really.
The Doors of Perception-Aldous Huxley....outdated but makes for an interesting read if you have the time.

The Milagro Beanfield War, by somebody.

The Green King, by somebody else.

But these books are just for fun, but damn were they good.

How about a really good movie, which I finally found on the internet for purchase? It's called "Paris, Texas" and if you ever get a chance to watch it, do so.

Out-of-print but an awesome compare and contrast of Eastern and Western mystical thought is: "The Private Sea: LSD and the Search for God" by William Braden

Another great book is "Beyond the Frontiers of the Mind" by Osho

I warn you in advance, this book is mind fucking.
