10 Must Read Books For Soul Seekers
For me summer starts with a good book - lying on a beach, relaxing in the garden, chilling in the park, resting in the hammock or a combination of any of these in no particular order. Just the great outdoors and a peaceful moment to get lost in the story so I can find myself.
You know what I'm talking about, right?
Peaceful means no members of my family constantly demanding my attention so that I end up reading the same paragraph over and over and over again...
Being a researcher and soul seeker that I naturally am I've just realised that none of the books I picked and read over the last few years are actually fiction books. With the exception of Paulo Coelho's 'Alchemist' I read about 9 years ago that is.
When I come to think about it I see only two possible reasons. First, I simply haven't found the right book or, which seems as the most likely explanation, I feel purely drawn to a literature that inspires, educates, motivates and enlightens.
For my purpose is not to find myself through any of the fictional characters but through the journey to (my)self - exploring, connecting, searching, balancing, daring, enjoying, smiling, loving, opening, releasing, relaxing and appreciating the whole I am.
The real me, not an illusion nor a fantasy.
