Short Reading List

Old/long list here.

  • Loving What Is by Byron Katie
    This book and its simple practice changed everything about how I think. I and the rest of this list, reflect that inner work.
  • The Disappearance of the Universe + sequels by Gary Renard
    This unremarkable guy Gary, opens his eyes one day after a meditation session to see two people sitting on his sofa, apparently having materialised out of thin air. Despite the strangeness he finds himself engaged in a conversation with them. And it is a fascinating conversation - the most interesting conversation I’ve ever read. At the end of the conversation they say they’ll be back, and then they disappear before his eyes. They visit him a total of 17 times and discuss many things and answer all his foolish questions. The book is mostly just a transcript of those conversations.
  • Radical Honesty by Brad Blanton
    Radical Honesty liberated my tongue.
  • Bring Me the Rhinoceros: And Other Zen Koans That Will Save Your Life by John Tarrant
    Zen is where this journey ends (beyond which there is nothing to see or discuss).
