In my late twenties, long before I found Yoga, before I became a hiking enthusiast, before becoming a Massage Therapist, before offering the Dolphin Breath Meditation, before becoming an instructor for Global Relationship Centers, these books made their way into my life…and I was forever transformed.
by Hermann Hesse
It inspired the adventurer in me and gave me the confidence to break from familial expectations.
by Joseph Campbell
This book has informed my reading, education and sense of duty. Joseph Campbell also set me free to be uniquely me, while opening my awareness to the awesomeness of the great mystery.
I have spent a lifetime listening to and watching lectures by him and most of my reading stems from books he has referenced.
There were some days that I felt so alone that this oracle seemed to be the only companion that I could trust with my big questions…the questions of the heart.
by Paramahansa Yogananda
His tender words profoundly opened my heart and my willingness to surrender to the small tender voice of the mystery, for guidance.
I have been distracted and a little discouraged for a few months and have enjoyed the refuge and inspiration found in these words. By revisiting these basics, I am remembering the feeling of being cradled by nature and the mystery; commonly referred to as God.
I highly recommend reading these if you feel a calling to seek, discover, and choose your true and unique path as a lifestyle.
