Yesterday, the mega bookstore 'Borders' announced their bankruptcy and upcoming closure. I journeyed to the store today to check out any sales, and a worker told me the liquidation mark-downs will begin this Friday.

I am interested in the topics listed in this thread's title (Spirituality, Occult, Esoteric, Metaphysics, Philosophy, and Meditation). Could you guys please give me some good books to look out for, and possibly a brief description?

Thanks in advanced.

get anything you canby Ophiel if you can only take one then "the art and practice of astral projection"

2nd "the art and practice of creative visualization"

he has a rambling style but there is a lot of info and dots connected for the discerning

philosophy: Nietzsche's thus spake Zarathustra

while not on the subjects list i always recommend Frank Herbert's Dune series.

and eric v. lustbader's "The Tao of Nicholas Linnear" series [the 1st one is titled The Ninja to give you an idea]

I recommend The Key, 2nd edition 2010, by Whitley Strieber is billed as a metaphysical or spiritual book, but I think it is a close encounter of the 3rd kind...this interview with "a visitor" gave Whitley Strieber the information he needed to write The Coming Global Superstorm and The Day After Tomorrow. And there's a vast amount more. I guarantee you it is worth the read.

Last week a noted psychic posted his own evaluation of The Key online...according to the psychic's reading, The Key is mostly quite accurate.

Here's the Amazon link:

If you're into books on magic, one of the best I ever found was The Encyclopedia for the Young Wizard (something like that), by Oberron Zell Ravenheart. Some might remember this guy as the one who bred unicorns for Ringling Bros.

Anyhoo, it's a great book on the subject, as he goes into nearly everything, magical theory, languages, gemstones, astrology, herbs, colors, you name it, it's pretty much in here. As the title implies, it's written from the standpoint of teaching to a young wizard. Like a first year book at Hogwarts. (but goes much deeper).

I've always found the subject while you won't find me in a Wiccan circle or anything...I still enjoy reading about the subject, especially throughout history.
