The 5 Best Inspirational Books In the World.
“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.” Eckhart Tolle
Eckhart Tolle is a German born author whom, after spending much of his life depressed, turned his focus inwards and experienced what he refers to as a ‘personal transformation’. He is now an extremely well known spiritual teacher and mentor, travelling across the world sharing his teachings
We tend to spend a lot of our lives living through the noise in our heads. Very rarely do we allow ourselves the stillness of the Now. In his first book, ‘The Power of Now’, Tolle encourages and teaches us to learn how to live in the present moment, rather than in the stories in our minds, which often refer to the past or future. This is a powerful practice which if used daily can truly lead to a personal transformation.
Other books by Eckhart Tolle – A New Earth, Stillness Speaks.
“In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.” – Deepak Chopra
Deepak Chopra is a renowned Indian American author and public speaker. He is an M.D. as well as an advocate for alternative medicine and spirituality. He openly endorses both Buddhism and Christianity.
In his book The 7 Spiritual Laws of Success, Chopra reveals 7 specific insights that we can use in our day to day life to help us attain personal enlightenment. The Seven Spiritual Laws are simple yet powerful principles that you can use to fulfil your deepest desires with joy. One of the laws discusses the power of detachment. This does not mean emotional detachment from life in an uncaring sense. Detachment in the spiritual sense means to access a level of peace about your life and the situations in it. When you practice detachment, you are able to accept life as, it is rather than how you want it to be, and therefore you will naturally increase your happiness.
Other books by Deepak Chopra – The Book Of Secrets, How to Know God.
“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” – Wayne Dyer
Dr Wayne Dyer was a famous American author and speaker in the fields of spirituality and personal growth. He was the author of over 40 books and also created many audio and video programs during his career.
In his book The Power of Intention, Dr Dyer uncovers the idea that intention, which can sometimes be practiced as fearful propulsion into action, is actually a force in the Universe that allows the act of creation to take place. The idea is that you do not ‘do’ intention but it is what you are, a part of your divine place in the Universe. We all have divinity within us, we only need to trust, and allow it to shine through us.
