The Best Book is Self

Books are like old friends that come to visit us for awhile, educating, entertaining and enlightening. They never leave us where they find us. Our consciousness is transformed by the experience. 

I found this old fashioned painting at a yard sale, reminding me of my own summer vacations growing up. I looked forward to a trip to the library, returning home with a large stack of books. I hurried to my room to lose myself in a good mystery. I didn't know then that life itself was a mystery, with two entirely different stories playing out in my mind, one the truth and the other fictional.

There is a large sign that speaks volumes that is perfectly posted above the entrance  to the Edgar Cayce library in Virginia Beach.  "The best book is Self," caught my attention. The quote came from Edgar Cayce reading 452-3.  I knew he was not referring to my personal lower self, but to the Christ Self within the Mind of each of us.

The theme continued when Elliot pointed out a book by Katie Byron, Who Would You Be Without Your Story? The title cracked me up because deep down the ego's bottom line is usually, "It's all about me!" In truth, we are spiritual not material, made in the image and likeness of our Creator. While we each have a story, it doesn't define who we really are. Our journey is to uncover the shadow side and dissolve it into the light.

By the way, if you are looking for a wonderful resource site for books on-line, you may want to check out forgottenbooks.orgIt has a good number of spiritual books, too, that you may find helpful.

Enjoy your day with the angels.

Love and joyful blessings,
