Here are some additional resources to consider and investigate. I’ll just give you a brief annotated list and you can look further into anything that piques your interest.

* Mooji – His website is here, but his satsang videos (available on youtube) are terrific and plentiful. I was introduced to Mooji by a friend who is much more advanced than I am in spiritual practice – and I’d say that he’s not really for beginners. Mooji is a spiritual teacher or guru with a style that he calls “the lazy man’s way to enlightenment.” In my opinion, there’s nothing lazy about it – his talks are very philosophical, abstract, and often leave me feeling quite out of my depth when listening to him. If you’re ready to be taken to the proverbial “next level,” Mooji’s a great resource. If I’m not mistaken (which I might be), I think his teachings are of a Hindu lineage, rather than a Buddhist one.

* Lao Tzu – (from wikipedia) was a philosopher and poet of ancient China. He is best known as the reputed author of the Tao Te Ching and the founder of philosophical Taoism, but he is also revered as a deity in religious Taoism and traditional Chinese religions. The Tao is full of nifty lessons, quotes, versus that align beautifully with spiritual wisdom. Here is one:

Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.

As far as I know, one of the best modern interpreters of the Tao in our Western world is Dr. Wayne Dyer. His site is here. He’s a regular on the self-help circuit and is a best selling author many times over.

* A Course in Miracles – similar to how Esther Hicks receives Abraham (see my post on the law of attraction), and how Jane Roberts received the Seth Material (a future post), this guide to spiritual transformation (in my opinion, just another approach to the same universal truths) was received by Helen Schucman in the 1960’s and 1970’s, and compiled into what’s been called the New Age Bible. The most prominent teacher of this particular path is Marianne Williamson. She has a ton of books, audio courses, and interviews, if you’d like to learn more.
