Trunk Full of Tales

These books are recommended from the heart. Each book offers a very rewarding experience for the reader. The theme if there is one is on opening the mind. We often lived in such a focused state that is becomes difficult to simply see a tree for what is is and not its use. I sincerely hope you love these books as they have taken me many places and taught me about worlds I might never have known. These are the gems out there and if you haven't read them, then you simply must!

Next Of Kin
By Roger Fouts

Next Of Kin HardcoverAfter reading Fouts' Next Of Kin I was speechless. I can express how wonderful it is to learn from an individual whose humility, concern for life and compassion is his life work. I simply could not put the book down! It was one of the most thoughtful, eye-opening, and educated books that I have ever read. Having the opportunity to listen to Roger Fouts speak on book tour, my heart opened to his message of compassion; his willingness to express his feelings and experiences to a group of strangers further enhanced my view of this incredible individual. A book that will change your life and the way you see our next of kin and the fellow animals of this world.

Loving-Kindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness
By Sharon Salzberg

lovinkkindnessReading this book forces the reader to embark upon a journey of opening the mind, and the heart (if there is a real difference).  A Journey that questions the conditioned states many of us have become used to as our reality. With a mastery of deep understanding and humility, Sharon Salzberg gives people one of the most important gifts in the world. It is something most of us just seek unconsciously. It is something that we don't usually remain aware of in our every day life, but we all would be willing to do anything to "get" it. It is happiness.

Another book that will change your life and give you a direction to the rambling stream of life. If I could read only one book this might be the one!

Animal Liberation
By Peter Singer

Animal LiberationAnimal Liberation is an extremely well written account about the common practices of laboratory testing on animals and cruelty involved with factory farming. "This book is a must...not just for every animal lover but for every civilized reader." Cleveland Amory

Despite the title which may shy people away with the threat of extremism, Singer takes a path uncharted by modern philosophers and compassionate thinkers. He decides not to tug on the heart strings and presents a mind opening appeal to question our moral boundaries. As it forces us to open our minds to possibilities, it is a great book for anyone to read. He writes about the cruelty inflicted on animals with laboratory testing through the eyes of researchers and scientists who have been awoken morally to the reality of what they are doing to our fellow animals. Also, he goes behind the scenes on modern factory farms to dispel a myth of propaganda portrayed to us on the television. Animal Liberation is one of the most important works in the field of animal rights and moral equality for the other animals with which we share the earth. This is an inspirational work with the power to change your life and the way you perceive the world.

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance : An Inquiry into Values
By Robert Pirsig

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle MaintenanceZen & The Art touches life in the place that most people do not often question. To say what the book is about attempts to capture it within a sphere that is far too rigid for its nature. Superficially, a journey takes place with the reader travelling across America on a motorcycle on a vacation. Inherently, it provides a medium for questioning the nature of our experience. A place to allows us to look at a topic or object for what it is and now simply what our minds make it.

Will you find what you are seeking? It is probably best to go in unencumbered of hopes and dreams of expectation. The search becomes am much a part life as the answer that has been looked for. I have read this many times and have found it incredible beautiful at many different phases of my life. With the power of a jackhammer to open our closed minds, this book is a must read for all!
