Self - improvement books

Here, I am at it again, filling the blog with a Hmmmm moment.
This was purely the intention of my blog when I started, but lately it has become an exercise in copy-paste of content I find interesting....not the best form.

So, I was reading one of these self-improvement best sellers. I typically stay away from them as I find the spiritual books providing me all the inspiration. But having sat through one of the motivational pep talks by a famous persona, I proceeded to buy the book.

Inherently, these books - spiritual or not - preach the same. Be good, and is wrapped out humane real world situations. Spiritual concepts are a bit more higher level that is not possible to relate to, unless there has been some convergence of thoughts and understanding.

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
