This is a compilation of thought-provoking reads that may challenge some deep rooted perceptions of yourself and the world. I've read many of these, and the others are on my ever growing "to read" list. Some of these have brought me a great deal of peace and comfort in my life, as well as being instrumental in me making some profound changes.

"When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself."
"True intelligence operates silently. Stillness is where creativity and solutions to problems are found."
"Your unhappiness ultimately arises not from the circumstances of your life but from the conditioning of your mind."
The Power of Now
"As soon as you honor the present moment, all happiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out of the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love- even the most simple action."
"Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life."
A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose
"The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it."
"Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for abundance."
"Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment."
"And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."
"It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting."
The Celestine Prophecy
"I don't think that anything happens by coincidence.... No one is here by accident...Everyone who crosses our path has a message for us. Otherwise they would have taken another path, or left earlier or later. The fact that these people are here means that they are here for some reason..."
"We must assume every event has significance and contains a message that pertains to our questions...this especially applies to what we used to call bad things...the challenge is to find the silver lining in every event, no matter how negative."
Conversations with God
Neale Donald Walsch
"There is enough money in the world, and enough time, love, food, water, and compassion to share with everyone."
"You are goodness and mercy and compassion and understanding. You are peace and joy and light. You are forgiveness and patience, strength and courage, a helper in time of need, a comforter in time of sorrow, a healer in time of injury, a teacher in times of confusion. You are the deepest wisdom and the highest truth; the greatest peace and the greatest love. You are these things. And in moments of your life you have known yourself as these things. Choose now to know yourself as these things always."
"...the Ultimate Truth: nothing exists in the universe that is separate from anything else. Everything is intrinsically connected, irrevocably interdependent, interactive, interwoven into the fabric of all of life."
"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone."
"Love is that which is unlimited. Ere is no beginning and no end to it. No before and no after. Love always was, always is, and always will be."
"You must learn to be gentle with yourself. And stop judging yourself."
The Future of God: A Practical Approach to Spirituality For Our Times
"Faith must be saved for everyone's sake. From faith springs a passion for the eternal, which is even stronger than love. Many of us have lost that passion or have never known it."
