I have read that. I thought it was very good.

Finished reading Sarangels book. Yes it is very good.
Just recieved 'Master of Lucid Dreaming ' by Olga Kharitidi and am looking forward to going to the park later on and start reading it.

Finished What Makes You Not a Buddhist by Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse. Excellent work. "there is always this constant nagging feeling that there is more to life, and this discontent leads to suffering." Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse.
Now reading:
Confession of a Buddhist Atheist - Stephen Batchelor
K. T. Shubhakaran - Mystical Formulae part 1 - Mantras
William Gibson - Neuromancer
One of my favorite, reading again Venedict Yerofeyev - Moscow - Petushki

neuromancer is an awesome book

just started Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond: A Meditator's Handbook by Ajahn Brahm, wonderful stuff so far, having never learned directly from Ajahn Chah, and having always appreciated Jack Kornfield, this is a deeper glimpse into the Thai Forest tradition which i always receive so much from. Thank you Tibetan_Ice for the recommendation, really great so far

My thanks too. Great book and he has many profound audio talks on the web for free.

I'm slowly going through the Drop Dead Healthy, by A J Jacobs, funny and thought provoking on health.

Push hard to get better, become smarter, grow your devotion to the truth, fuel your commitment to beauty, refine your emotional intelligence, hone your dreams, negotiate with your shadow, cure your ignorance, shed your pettiness, heighten your drive to look for the best in people, and soften your heart. A creed from Pronoia

Where we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experience the loss of soul. Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing salves. ~ Gabrielle Roth

anapanasati sutta

Focused and Fearless by Shaila Catherine

both about breathing practice, the latter focusing on absorption and joy/bliss

i just got a Sony Reader for ebooks, and was delighted to find shaila catherine's book for less than 8 bucks, which means that for the price of a used paper copy plus shipping (at a cheap price too) i can actually support the author, meaning that some of that money goes towards her directly. Thats awesome. those e-ink screens are awesome too.. its just like reading a book except i can adjust the font size and do a ton of other stuff.. its great, i recommend it for anyone who loves to read more than they know what to do with all those books when they're done with them <cough cough>

Not to spoil it for you but the ending is disappointing.
Maybe there will be a sequel to tie up all those plotlines left dangling.
.................................................................................................................................

Just finished Olson's Qigong Teachings of a Taoist Immortal.
Edition I have is poorly edited. The trigrams are just plain wrong on some pages. Looks as though images and words have been transposed so on one page Heaven is shown as one trigram elsewhere it shows a different image. Prety poor show as he recommends the book to 'beginners and experienced alike'. It could only confuse a beginner.
That said he has some nice translations of earler texts in there.

Sorry, must be a different book. The one I read is that one the 'Left Behind' series was based on.

always wanted to pick up Brian Walker's Hua Hu Ching and never got around to it

how is it viator?

I'm halfway through Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche's Wild Awakening - The Heart of Mahamudra and Dzogchen now and its very good. I really like him, and the book is clear and helpful. In person he is halarious, always cracking really funny jokes, but this book is more scholarly and kind of dry compared to the wit that he actually possesses. Very lucid and informative.

on my wish list:
Rebel Buddha: On the Road to Freedom by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
Wisdom Wide and Deep - A Practical Handbook for Mastering Jhana and Vipassana - by Shaila Catherine
