Reading

recommended by Chungliang

In 1990, I conjured up an extensive reading list for our members with this message:

“Unlike typical suggestions of ‘Great Books’ and most current ‘must read lists’, I will create a list of books that continue to enlighten me personally in my perpetual search for meaning and re-affirmation. Most of these books are meant to be read many times, and some need to be kept close at hand to become comforting companions…”

Today, I still feel the same. I also have come to realize that our human capacity to absorb, retain and recall information is limited. My List of Recommended Reading, therefore, is now thoughtfully reduced to its minimum. As we grow older, the wisdom of “Less is More” becomes apparent!

Love,
