BOOKS TO READ

Books can help us understand the world, ourself, life – or at least they try to find some explanation that can be very inspiring for our own understanding of these things. To grow, to change, to create. And sometimes, they’re just beautiful – in their very own way.

 


 

ISMAEL
by Daniel Quinn

A teacher and his student talk about humanity. It shows the origins of our society and even gives you a new view on the beginning of the bible. Incredibly interesting – a must read for everyone who wants to change the world and everyone else who doesn’t understand yet why we really have to change it!

 

A NEW WORLD
by Eckhart Tolle

After “NOW” by Eckhart Tolle – a book that talks about why and how to be present – “A NEW WORLD” deepens the specific ways our egos try to hold on to suffering and disguise, in different forms and different ways, highly influencing how our society works – maybe by spreading an awareness of the essential presence we are, we can change that.

 

THE ART OF LOVING
by Erich Fromm

You will not only learn why love is an active decision that needs time and care, but also all kinds of different manifestations of love – from the mother to the partner to god – and how it can go terribly wrong if you don’t realise, what love actually is.

 

FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY
by Susan Jeffers

We are mostly driven by fear. Of what? That we can’t handle IT, whatever IT might be. “Feel the fear and do it anyway” won’t take this fear away, but you will learn how to deal with it in order to pursue your dreams.

 

F**K IT: THE ULTIMATE SPIRITUAL WAY
by John C. Parkin

You’ll learn why F**K YOU is actually a compliment and why we simply should say F**K IT more often – for the sake of our own health and this planet’s too.

 

SOPHIE’S WORLD
by Jostein Gaarder

For everyone who loves philosophy. Following the story of Sophie, you’ll get to know the history of philosophy, starting in ancient Greece until today, while Sophie herself starts to experience the world in a new way.

 

WIE WIR BEGEHREN (German)
by Carolin Emcke

I love her style of writing. And she tells some important points about how we desire, and what desire can be while following her own story of discovering herself.

 

MILK AND HONEY
by Rupi Kaur

Beautiful. Poems. – And sometimes socially critical too.
