What I'm reading right now is "The Untethered Soul", which is also a really, really amazing book. It's a little hippy yoga, but it's all about how you deal with stuff that happens to you in life and be emotionally strong.

Michael moved to an empty patch of forest, set up his trailer, and started to meditate in the early 70s.
He surrendered to whatever happened in his life.
Well...what ended up happening is that he created a multi-billion dollar company.
His book is about the spiritual beauty of surrender. And how that can go hand in hand with financial success.
I was so astonished by the book that I contacted him and flew down to Florida and stayed several days in his “compound” and interviewed him about his success. I re-read the book at least once every few months.

I'll say Untethered Soul. It's called The Untethered Soul. It's by Michael Singer. This guys is actually, he's a G. He started a software company that was valued at a couple billion dollars, and then at some point he got indicted by the government and in trouble with the FBI for some crimes he didn't commit. The book is a recollection of all the mental processes that were going on with him while he was in this period of really high stress and anxiety. He made it into this like really interesting self-help manual that allows you to detach from a lot of the anxieties of modern day world. It's a super short read, but it's very powerful.

In the book The Untethered Soul, Michael A. Singer takes you step-by-step through the process of Gyana, the yoga of the Intellect, to the Source. Moreover, he does it with elegant simplicity. Read this book carefully, and you will get more than a glimpse of eternity.

East is East and West is West, but Michael A. Singer bridges these two great traditions in a radiant treatise on how to succeed in life from our spiritual quest to our everyday tribulations. Freud said that life was composed of love and work. With great eloquence, wit, and compelling logic, Singer’s brilliant book completes this thought by showing them to be two poles of the same selfless devotion.
