Three books that may change your life

I had this three books which stuck in my mind and soul like no others. I turn to them again and again because….well, because they are so good! Why? Because this books can make you see the magic in life without any fairy tale sprinkles. It is all real, here and now. And this three books can make you understand how and why reality is so magical and so, you can integrate that magic into your life. The description I made them so far makes them sound like children books with unicorns and rainbows. Well, in fact they are about quantum physics, cellular biology, energies, mindfulness and ancient wisdom. But read them and let me know if you didn’t feel the magic!

I strongly believe that any of the three books I will present can actually change your life in better and I highly recommend them.

Let’s begin!

(P.S.: the order of the books is aleatory)

The books are:

  • The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra

  • The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton

  • THIS IS THAT: Patanjali's Yoga Sutras Padas 1 and 2 by Anand Mehrotra

The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra

Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra was exactly the book I was searching for, a book which talks about spirituality and science, searching for common ground between the two. That helped my analytic mind to better understand and incorporate the spiritual eastern knowledge and so to shift my vision over energy and how everything is related and interconnected.

The book is written in a way which makes it relatively easy to follow and understand, even though it talks about quantum physics and gets into details very much. The author succeeds to make himself understood by any person, no matter their background.

Two things that stuck in my mind from this book were the fact that quantum sub-particles are born and die and being transferred from one particle to another constantly, meaning that there is a constant flow and exchange of energy in the Universe, and the other is that space is all what there is; scientists each time they go deeper and deeper into the quantum particles world they find more and more space, just as on macro level, there are far less celestial bodies (planets, stars, etc) than there is space.

The Tao of Physic by Fritjof Capra is a scientific work in which the author creates a beautiful parallel between the ancient eastern teachings and belief systems and the recent discoveries in science and physics. He tracks the evolution and teachings of Hinduism, Buddhism, Chinese Thought, Zen and Taoism, of physics from Ancient Greece to nowadays. After explaining them one by one, he then highlights the similarities between them. The main one is that the seer is the seen, meaning that reality depends on the observer, it is relative. This might translate into “your life is as you perceive it to be” or “you got the power!”.

This book helped me see life as energy and as a constant change of energy, perspective which reveals the interconnectivity between everything, objects, persons, thoughts, feelings, words, actions and how each of them has an impact over the others.

For a person as analytical as me, those informations helped to really assimilate the teachings of yoga on the brain level and so now my beliefs come from a place of understanding and true knowledge. I highly recommend this masterpiece book and it’s beautiful way of presenting the mysteries of quantum physics, the wisdom of ancient beliefs and the hidden reality behind everything in this Universe!
