5 Fave Books

In no particular order except Number One…
1. Leaves of Grass by my beloved Uncle Walt. Any page I turn to has me in his divine embrace, I can actually see the twinkle in his eye. I also call him Saint Walt. So ahead of his time in terms of accepting and adoring the holiness of the flesh, and how the soul can reside very comfortably there….Anybody banned in Boston is OK by me.
2. Any poem collection by Rumi. He widens my soul and expands my heart with his exquisite wisdom and eternal insight into who we really are as human beings.
3. Letters to a Young Poet – Rilke. His studied passion and stern devotion (not to mention clear-headed advice) are a reminder of what we are all capable of.
4. The Power of Now and A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. No nonsense truth told in a way that is actually fairly easy to understand. Putting it all into practice is another story, but I have had many ‘aha!’ moments reading Tolle.
5. The Gospel According To Jesus by Stephen Mitchell. He and several biblical scholars trim down to a couple dozen pages what the Good Lord actually said, without a single mention of Sin or Hell.
