Please note many times these links will take you to places on the web where you might purchase a book. This is not to say these are the only places to buy these books. Take a look at stores closer to home, especially at the smaller independent stores. Or, have a look at your local public library. These are books that have had a significant impact on my own life, or that I just enjoy and which might appeal to you. Blessings.
The Magic of Findhorn by Paul Hawken
The story of how 3 people and what happens when you listen to the small voice within. This is truly a magical book. It is out of print, but I'm sure you'll find a copy. More information and Findhorn as it is today.
An aspiring Yogi wanted to find a Guru. He went to an Ashram and his preceptor told him, "You can stay here but we have one important rule: all students observe Mouna or a vow of silence. You will be allowed to speak in 12 years."
After practicing for 12 long years, the day came when the student could say his one thing or ask his one question.
He said: "The bed is too hard."
He kept going for another 12 years of austere discipline, meditation and silence and finally got the opportunity to speak again. He said: "The food is not good."
Twelve more years of hard work and he got to speak again. Here are his words after 36 years of practice: "I quit."
His Guru quickly answered: "Good, all you have been doing anyway is complaining."
