Carlos Castaneda made a huge impact on me. I don't if you know who he is.. Castaneda was this dude who claimed that he met a Yaqui shaman called Don Juan (and later Don Genaro) who - throughout the years - taught him how to see the world through shamans eyes.
It's been speculated that Castaneda made the whole thing up. And he probably did. Nevertheless, it's a very impressive body of work, and there's nothing like it written after it.
Sometimes scary, many time hilarious, touching, a true eye-opener.

The "Bhagavad Gita" and the "Upanishads" my personal two top favorites. They are both esoteric Hindu texts. They really resonated with me. I specifically recommend the translations by Eknath Easwaran. He sets up the chapters for you. He also has some Buddhist material. I so happy to hear that your on your journey. Keep meditating. The truth comes from within. Peace & love to you and Namase (which means I ackowledge the Divinity in you)
