Myrko Reply November 29, at 2: Caroline from Sweden, thanks for your additions to the list.
Yes, I think those are great ones, especially The Monk. Suhel Reply November 29, at 5: Myrko Reply November 29, at 5: Ok, nice it made sense to you I also just edited in one more paragraph into the comment above.
Then select the best parts and integrate them in whatever you do in your life. Thanks mate, I never thought it that way. Thanks again for replying.. Hm interesting perspective Suhel. I never thought about that problem before.
You said you highlight points made in the books. That means that those points made an impression on you. I personally usually read to solve a problem or get an insight that gets me ahead in some way.
This is the motivation I use to start reading and the points highlighted will help me. I know that I will profit from them in some way. So one thing is to check your motivation for reading the book. Then select the best parts and integrate them in whatever you do in your life, which is another key. Doing so, you work with the new knowledge and improve your mindset , while avoiding to add knowledge that did not pass your internal questioning and therefore may not be right for you at the moment.
Really good knowledge has the power to transform you, to make you grow, even if you only read it it will influence you. But you have to be open and really understand it of course, so it can become part of yourself. I also found that writing a review about the book helps a lot. It shows if you understood the key parts and helps you to reflect on it.
This again internalizes the knowledge important for you. Thanks for the input, yes I really might write a post about that. Suhel Reply November 29, at 4: I usually read to finish the book. I highlight something that catches my attention but I never return back to it. I really want some tips why not you write an article? Like how do you read? The Koran, check it out, its life changing.
Myrko Reply September 15, at 9: Thx Mike, A New Earth is a great book as well, yes. But I would recommend A New Earth for sure as well!
Mike Keller Reply September 15, at 8: This book totally changed my life. My ego was in total control of my life. I now enjoy helping others and encouraging them to be their best. This book is a great roadmap for anyone who is motivated to pursue their dreams.
Becky Reply August 27, at 7: Myrko Reply August 27, at 7: Myrko Reply August 26, at 6: Becky Reply August 25, at I found this book to be extremely helpful to me in my life.
It has taught me that we can influence the natural world positively through attunement, meditation, prayer, intention, loving presence. Myrko Reply August 20, at 1: Nothing more than needed.
