List of Teachers and Books

Books are used to acquire knowledge.  Truth is not knowledge that can be acquired.  The Truth is ever-present, only appearing clouded-over by that which is untrue.  To realize this for ourselves, we must work to remove all that is untrue; which is but a manifestation of the mind.  The books listed here are meant to aid in this endeavor.

Please note that different books appeal to different degrees of conscious realization – I recommend that you do your own research on each of these to see what resonates with you.  I am simply offering a growing list of materials that I have found to be interesting and useful.
