    1. joe says:

      I would Add Pathways Through To Space and Consciousness without an Object by Franklin Merrill Wolff, The Jed McKenna Series, Anything by Tony Parsons, Stephen Norquist; What is it like to be enlightened, Leo Hartong: Awakening to the dream

    2. joe says:

      I found Osho surprisingly good. His story of waking up is quite compelling and poetic.

    3. Hey joe, thanks for visiting, I really enjoy your blog. I probably will add Steven Norquist soon, as I’ve read his Haunted Universe (first edition and revised)

      and right now I’m working on Jed McKennas Spiritually Incorrect Enlightenment which I’m really intrigued by. I only add books I’ve read and agree are good sources to pull from, but thank you for the suggestions of reading material.

      My Next book will probably be Spiritual Enlightenment, The Damndest thing.

    4. joe says:

      Definitely look at FMW – a “hard’ read due to his thick writing style – but the only or one of the few that write about their awakening.
      Also, take a look at Perfect Brilliant Stillness by David Carse.
      And: justperception.net

    5. Thank you joe so much for the suggestions, and for also commenting so that other readers may see those books and be pulled to them as well. =]

    6. May i humbly suggest my own book The Complete Guide To Enlightenment.
      It’s a comprehensive book of direct pointing in a style similar to that which triggered your realisation.
