I'm a book junkie and have a stack of books on my night stand because before I go to bed every night I like to feed my brain with something positive to end my day with and go to sleep with something helpful or uplifting. So, here's what I've been reading lately:
Emotional Bullshitby Carl Alasko PhD
This book is awesome! Explains a great deal actually. The title alone hooked me. What I liked the most is that you get some good exercises on how to be better at conflict resolution.
Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow by Elizabeth Lesser
I don't always read books linearly from page1 to the end. Sometimes I just open up to random pages and read from there which I've been doing with this book. I'm not done with the book yet but so far it's good. My fave part is about Ram Dass and the lesson he learned in being helpless. Very powerful!
Rich Brother Rich Sisterby Robert Kiyosaki and Emi Kiyosaki
Robert Kiyosaki wrote the hugely popular and useful book Rich Dad, Poor Dad. If you haven't read that book, you MUST! Especially now that we're all challenged financially, Rich Dad Poor Dad can help you see the big picture and it's written in everyday speak which I loved. One of Robert's sisters Emi is a Buddhist monk and they wrote Rich Brother Rich Sister as a way to share their childhood, their philosophies on money & spirituality, and as a way to help Emi earn money to help pay for her medical bills from cancer and a heart issue. The insurance companies and hospitals don't give do-gooder freebies. The book brings up some very good points related to the balance of financial and spiritual needs, and how the two are tied together.
