Disclaimer: I am aware of duplicates that are present, but as time passes, people might find new works to read.
I have recently graduated and want to read some books that may increase my understanding of the world around me and of the mind itself. I am not looking for e.g. history books to learn but rather books that deal with the mind itself.
It might even be slightly spiritual things, but not extreme shamanism if you know what I mean hehe. I’m also a believer in mind over matter, so if you know anything cool about that please share.
Here are some concerning the same topics so you might grasp what I’m talking about if it was a bit vague:
Dharma Bums – Kerouac, Jack.
A New Earth – Tolle, Eckhart
Cosmos – Sagan, Carl
Thanks in advance.
Check out: ‘Head Trip’ by Jeff Warren, it looks at 24 hours in the life of your brain. I’d also recommend ‘Is there life after Death ?’ by Anthony Peake. This may seem somewhat off the mark from what you say you’re looking for but it covers such a wide range of topics that you are bound to find it ties in with your interests.
Have a look at The Monk Who Sold his Ferrari, http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/f/francois_de_la_rochefouca.html and surprisingly this site – https://www.highexistence.com/s/?q=books
