@Mwb76 It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance!
I am no Buddhist, but I like listening to Alan Watts. I find his teachings approachable since he had a foot in both the eastern and western worlds.
@thegreendragon Thank you!
@Mwb76 Check out anything by Thich Nhat Hanh or Pema Chodron. I also enjoyed The Way of the Bodhisattva. Richard Rohr is a Christian writer but sympethetic to Buddhism. A Course in Miracles is post-Christian spirituality but aligns closely with my understanding of buddhism as well.
@brothermatthew Thank you
@Mwb76 Michael A. Singer is not Buddhist but his books "The Untethered Soul" and "The Surrender Experiment" also compliment my understanding of Buddhism as well.
@Mwb76 +1 to Alan Watts. I really enjoyed his Way of Zen book. It dives into how it's a bit of a mix between Buddhism and Taoism.
Then Easwaran's translations of the Hindu scriptures are fantastic, particularly for their forewords that explain the philosophy in detail.
@silas Thank you
@Mwb76 someone suggested the Be Here Now Network podcasts to me...I’m also new to this world of thinking. Jack Kornfield and Sharon Salzberg are where I started. :)
