Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson

This product was recommended by Patrick Sinclair from All Home Robotics

I’ve been a big fan of Neil deGrasse Tyson for a long time, so I wanted to suggest a book of his that might be what you’re looking for. It’s called Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. The title says it all; it’s a quick, simple, and accessible guide to the universe, our place within it, and its place within us. Neil has always had very profound yet easy to comprehend views on these topics, and sharing them with the world is one of his great contributions as an astrophysicist.

Many people are now rejecting mainstream religions and trying to delve into more kaleidoscopic spirituality with the universe. This book will show you about the many forms of spirituality and religion that are taking form and how the people are responding to them.

This product was recommended by Sara Monk from SaraMonk

In Ask Your Guides, Sonia Choquette teaches us that we all have a divine support system guiding us throughout our lifetime. We do not have to go through life all alone because we are never alone. We are divinely supported in every matter of our lives, but we need to ask for assistance from our spiritual guides and angels because there is the matter of free will. This book assisted me in deepening my understanding of what I call my spiritual team and the ways they can assist me. I recommend this book if you are getting acquainted with the idea that you are a spiritual being and if you’d like to learn more about how the universe can assist you on your spiritual journey.

Using spiritual hypnotic regression, Newton was considered a pioneer in uncovering what happens after death. Newton was an atheist who one day went a little further in his hypnotherapy and discovered there was more to life, and so began his journey. Journey of Souls has given me a new perspective on life’s challenges, death, and why we are here. It is a gateway to understanding that we are not just physical beings; we are spiritual beings. Newton says if you only take away one point from the book, let it be this: There is life after death.

The Sacred Universe by Thomas Berry

This product was recommended by Cindy Corpis from SearchPeopleFree

There are lovely observations on how lovely and valuable the planet Earth is. It shows how, rather than being redeemed from creation, the true aim of religion is to care for it. It also implies that nature reveals a religious dimension far more plainly than Biblical writings. A vision of the universe and our place in it that is prophetic. A thorough awareness of our world’s religious traditions, as well as how scientific discovery fits into and strengthens them.

The Twelve Spiritual Laws Of The Universe by Santi

This is a wonderful book to start with because it leads to various ways of thinking.

The Tao of Hoop by Ann Humphreys

This product was recommended by Ann Humphreys from Line&Circle

This book is a memoir about, strangely, hula-hooping…and Taoism….and space, time, faith, loss, friendship, and family. Author Ann Humphreys was blindsided when her beloved father was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor two weeks before she left home for college. When he died six months later, her fragile, teenage Christian faith was irrecoverably shattered, leaving her with no place to start from except the immense, implausible, incomprehensible universe into which he had disappeared forever. Finding the hula-hoop some 15 years later allowed Humphreys to begin to form a more solid, embodied sense of faith, an understanding based not on an imaginary, punitive, disembodied-yet-somehow-male God, but on the pulses and shapes and rhythms of the universe itself. As Humphreys’s close friend–the Cree artist Kimowan Metchewais–undergoes brain surgery for his own brain tumor, we follow the evolution of this friendship and shared faith in the physical practice both have begun with the hoop…and we learn that yes, we too can hula-hoop, we can even dance! Even if we believe–as Humphreys did for most of her life– that we can’t. The Tao of Hoop gives readers a glimpse into the uniquely fulfilling practice that pairs movement with sphere-based objects, also known as flow art. By the end, you’ll want a hula-hoop of your very own!
