BOOK: Three Magic Words, by U.S. Andersen – This book gets to the heart of the questions which pull at the human soul, and is one of the early self-help books teaching about the power of Thought in the same vein as The Science of Mind. A relatively short read, it is a good introduction to the concept of the law of attraction.

BOOK: Meditation in Action, by Chögyam Trungpa – This is a classic on Buddhist meditation by Tibetan master Chögyam Trungpa. He teaches that meditation is based on trying to see what is, rather than trying to achieve a higher mental or physical state. In a very short read, Trungpa describes the life of the Buddha in very simple terms, emphasizing that, like the Buddha, we must find the truth for ourselves, rather than following someone else’s example.
FILM: Corações Sujos (Dirty Hearts) – On Friday, July 13th, 2012, I went to the U.S. premiere of Corações Sujos (Dirty Hearts) at the Museum of Modern Art. It was a part of the 10th annual Premiere Brazil! festival. Based on the novel by Fernando Morais, the film was directed by Brazilian filmmaker Vicente Amorim. One of the producers was Oliver Kwon, a Harvard Business School classmate.
BOOK: Treat Yourself to Life, by Raymond Charles Barker – This little book was one of the classic texts in my mom’s library (I actually still have her original copy). It explains how, through spiritual mind treatment, you can deliberately impress the subconscious with a creative idea so that it can manifest.
BOOK: Emerson’s Essays, by Ralph Waldo Emerson – My mom gave me Emerson’s Essays when I was a teenager. I’m just realizing how much of an influence it’s had on my own writing in content and form. Emerson was an American orator, poet, and leader of the Transcendentalist movement in the early nineteenth century.
