    Default Christmas Present Anyone?

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    Hi

    Folks,

    Lately, I have taken up the hobby of sending friends books that I have read and have found uplifting

    spiritually. I read books from many religions, cultures and origins, from the modern to the ancient from the

    scientific to the romantic from the well-grounded to that wacko. In keeping with the holidays, I would like to

    offer any Love Scent customer a free book, provided you are really likely to read it.

    I'll list a few.

    You can pick something that looks interesting or just tell me about yourself and I can pick something that seems

    like a possible fit.

    Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle (very assessable, Buddhist-type stuff)



    Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda (fantastic book about yogis and gurus in India, written by a

    great Indian yogi; not for newbies probably but easy to read)

    Peace is Every Step by Thich Nhat Han (easy

    to read SE Asian Budhist philosophy of the power in non-violence)

    Sri Ramakrsna and his Disciples by

    Christopher Isherwood (great book about the life of an amazing Indian yogi; for the andvanced student of

    yoga)

    Handbook to Higher Consciousness by Ken Keyes Jr. (70s new-age, self-help book)

    I will add more

    later....

    If you are interested and have placed an order within the last year, send me an email:

    bruce(at)love-scent.com and we'll get ya fixed up.

    Peace and Love,
    B

    To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.

    kindness yet again!!! Although none of these interest me, I truly appreciate your offer and often envy your heart.

    The Power of Now is a great

    book and I recomend it to everybody. Peace is every step is good too. If you are at all interested in philisophical

    learning they are both very worthwhile.
    To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

    Are any of these books good

    self lessons, or are they more less stories about someone else's lives? I love learning to improve myself through

    self help type stuff.

    I think Power of Now is good for

    that. Worth a try anyway. If you don't like it, you can give it to a friend.

    By the way, I found another book

    that is probably even less "religious" in the usual sense of the word and more "self help", but still a very

    powerful agent of positive change. It was written back in the 70s. I came accross it in a used book store a couple

    of years ago and it helped me a lot.

    Handbook to Higher Consciousness by Ken Keyes Jr.

    Great book. I'll

    add it to the list.

    Peace,
    Bruce
