A worthwhile read, if you are interested in spiritual enlightenment, is The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. The quest for inner peace is a continuous journey and Tolle takes us through this journey in a way that is understood by using simple language.

While reading this book I found myself agreeing with the writer and understanding why and how occurrences in my own life manifest themselves. If you are seeking a greater meaning to your life, as well as a reality check, this is the book for you.
