Important milestones are acknowledged by all of us along our path to higher understanding. To some of us it’s meeting our mate, or graduating from college, or helping someone out of a big jam. For me, along with many other touchstones that have added significance to my personal quest of attaining inner peace, books have always been as important as teachers or guides for me.
Imagine my delight when I was invited to share the 10 Most Important Spiritual Books that have influenced my journey to where I am today! Recently I spoke about my favorites with the host of the renowned No BS Spiritual Book Club. Previous authors and thought influence in the positive movement of our global family’s upward-spiraling evolution that have shared their 10 Most Favorite Spiritual Books are names you mostly know, and some you don’t. Now mine is among this illustrious list of authors and spiritual leaders.
Below, I’m including a link to my audio interview on the No BS Spiritual Book Club speaking about my treasured guiding-books. In case you’re too busy to listen, here’s the list of the particular beat my heart’s yearning took, via favorite written teachings and inspirations. Look for the No BS Spiritual links at the bottom of the list. And don’t forget to listen to our ZLORD podcast each week for the latest helpful thoughts my paramour Carter and I share with the world, in our efforts to help heal any brokenness we or others might have.
