    What's everyone reading at the moment?

    As for me haven't been doing that much reading lately. Found that I hardly read any more as well. Have to say do have times like this and others don't. Guess it depends on the book itself as well. Anyway, have ton of books to start to read and etc.

    As for me I'm reading Extraordinary, Ordinary, People: A Memoir of Family, Condoleezza Rice.

    I've recently acquired "The Middle Pillar" by Israel Regardie, so that is what I've currently been studying. If you haven't read any of Carlos Castaneda's books, you should look into getting some of his material. I think it is a good place to start for becoming familiar with spiritual discipline and they are written in the form of a story. They are quite captivating for most who have read them....

    Not reading anything at the moment, but the next book in line that I will read is probably The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot.


    Don’t let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    I've read it earlier this year. It was decent/moderately good.

    Ok, well these days descent is what we should be happy about.

    Excellent, well most books that are excellent were all written before either of us were born

    I've got one from the library called "LSD: Doorway to the Numinous"
    Wanted to see if it matches my visions at all. I've never had the opportunity to try it personally.
    I'm usually reading several books at a time.
    So I'm also re-reading "Quantum Consciousness" by Stephen Wolinsky - a great book,
    and "Sepher Yetsirah" by Carlo Suares and "The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross" by John Allegro.

    If I find my Robert Monroe books I'd really like to re-read those. And the Castaneda books.

    "Wholeness and the Implicate Order" by David Bohm is another good one Dev.

    Just finished reading the book that I mention in the quote. Have to say it was even though it took me a long time to read it. Expect these past few days of course. Unsure if I'm going to read her next memoir. Which I have no clue on the details of it.

    Anyway, just started America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag, Sarah Palin.

    I'm currently reading 'The Angel's Game' by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. Can't put it down... Truly magical (to me)...
