Yes, you must mean either this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/038548349X/ - Zen Buddhism - by Daisetz T. Suzuki
Or this one: An Introduction to Zen Buddhism by Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0802130550

You'll like this one: Zen in the Art of Archery by Eugen Herrigel - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0375705090

And of course any Alan Watts, like this one:
The Book : On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0679723005/
What Is Zen? by Alan Watts - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1577311671/

Keep 'em coming.

Good, I haven't read those yet, just Castaneda's The Teachings of Don Juan. Are those any better then?

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

Most have been mentioned here already.  It was the shroomery that introduced me to  the books that have most made an impact on me.  The shroomery changed my life!

:heart:BE HERE NOW :heart:
Ishmael
Conversations With God (not sure what I think of this now, but it helped me when I needed it)

Revelation! Have you read that book? It's been on my must-read list for a while! What can you tell us about it? I had visions of spirals and DNA strands on one of my trips, that's why I wanted to check it.

Well, I could write a book on what spirals mean to me, and the strange synchronicities I have experienced, but I won't.

To quote William Blake:

The nature of infinity is this: That everything has its
Own vortex, and when once a traveller thro' Eternity
Has pass'd that Vortex, he perceives it roll backward behind
His path, into a globe itself unfolding like a sun.
Thus is the heaven a vortex pass'd already, and the earth
A vortex not yet pass'd by the traveller thro' Eternity.

I'll have to check that book. Understanding what DNA is surely is a mystery.

Blake, great. You just described a wormhole there:
