If You Were to Choose One Book for Meditating …

A sister of mine asked me for advice about meditating. How to start? What type of meditating to do? While very spiritual she has no training or intention in any particular tradition. After much consideration here is my recommendation for her, a high level meditation that is full of grace, and I am going to give the book/CD with it to her as a gift.

True Meditation, by Adyashanti (Sounds True, 2006)

The book that speaks to my heart is still "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran.

I tried to meditate, but it had no effect on me.
Once I took part in a meditation which was supposed to reveal my name in the book of life. The name I heard inside during that meditation was 'William John'. :-)
