Lists 2

Three more books that have had a big impact on my life vision:

1 Cosmos, by Carl Sagan

2 The Road, by Cormac McCarthy

3 Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, by Robert Pirsig

Any comments? Perceptions?

  1. Love 1 and 3, and now will have to read 2. 🙂 Have you checked out Lila, the sequel to Zen? It does for post Christian morality what the first book did for philosophy, but it also is a beautiful lesson about trusting and loving your own self.

  2. I enjoyed The Road very much. I should probably read it again before commenting here, but I’m curious about its influence on your life vision. If you are willing…

    1. Hi Michael, I was very moved by The Road for two reasons. First, it showed in an absolutely uncompromising manner the cost of our destructive habits. And second, it showed the possibility of love and innocence in the midst of brutality. I think many of the spiritual masters who have influenced me are preoccupied by the same themes.

      1. Thank you for that. I can see what you mean, in my memory of it. Just your note here makes me want to read it again. It is nice to be reminded we carry the Light…

        Peace
        Michael
