Mandatory Reading

During this tough time, a lot of people are wondering what to do. Folks are getting laid off, the economy is crashing, people are sick, and we have a couple generations stuck using the mush for brains they got in public school systems. How can anyone NOT feel afraid?

This list of books is not a suggestion. This is mandatory reading to be a basic, mostly functioning adult facing really hard times. This is not a happy list for you to read at your leisure to hopefully one day improve your life a little. If you want those books, go look at someone else’s website.

These aren’t in any particular order, except for the Kybalion. Try to read that first. If it’s too much, come back to it. You may need to develop your consciousness and broaden your horizons before you’re ready for it. But keep coming back to it. Come back often and see if there are additions. Also, some of the books are heavy reading. Feel free to read some of the lighter ones first – you’ll get a better sense of accomplishment and that’s really important.
