The Best Book You’ve Never Heard Of…

Posted in Good Books, Uncategorized by ebenpagan on December 7, 2008

My biggest “find” in the last year or so is this book:

The Seven Mysteries Of Life

I consider this book to be the ultimate introduction to, and integration of, everything important about life and existence. Guy Murchie invested something like 15 years of his life writing this book – and then another entire YEAR illustrating it.

I honestly think it would be valuable for every person to read this book as they enter adulthood, and then review it at least once per year from them on. It’s that important.

Do you realize that every person you meet is… at MOST… your 50th cousin?

Did you know that sex evolved before death?

Would it surprise you to learn that there are at least 32 different senses that exist (not just the 5 that we commonly think of as “the” senses)?

Has anyone ever mentioned to you that the content of your thinking shapes the process of your thinking?

How about this: There are insects so small that they don’t feel gravity. In fact, to them, flying through air molecules feels like swimming would feel to us. To the smallest, flying most likely seems like DIGGING.

Finally: Even though the Earth “feels” smooth and motionless, we’re moving at 1/4 mile per second as the Earth rotates on its axis… 18 1/2 miles per second as the Earth travels around the sun… and 150 miles per second as our solar system orbits the galaxy.

This book will greatly assist in helping you “wake up.”

An integration of science, philosophy and art. Beautiful in its form, and impactful in its message. A deep book… but one that anyone will immediately be able to understand and appreciate.

Read it!

    Thanks Eben!

    From your brief synopsis, this book is definitely going on my ‘must read’ list. Might take a while to get through as it’s 704 pages, but I am sure it will be worth it.

    I’m guessing this is where you got your concept of being aware of gravity and attraction.

    15 years in writing a book is enough reason to get it.

    Always great to read a book that connects the dots for us. Practical and inspirational at the same time.

    Hey Eben,

    I was just curious, how do you choose which books and movies to read and watch, even out of hundreds that you may have been recommended?

    Thanks,

    Broderick

    P.S.

    If anyone else has any info on this, please let me know at BroderickBoyd@gmail.com or post to my personal development website at http://BroderickBoyd.com

    Eben,

    I’ll check this book out and see how it resonates. It’s incredible to see you take all your lessons and serve others with your findings. That’s really cool bro.

    Hi Eben!

    I’ve learned to love books BECAUSE OF YOU.

    I just want to tell you that bookstores aren’t so popular in our country, the Philippines. Although, there’s Amazon and eBay, it’s still quite expensive to buy and ship them out here.

    That’s why I appreciate it SO MUCH when you recommend books because now I know which ones are worth buying.

    Pls. make MORE BLOGS of GOOD BOOKS!

    Thank you so much. You’re a gift to the world.

    Thanks for the suggestion. It’s on my wishlist as of today.

    thanks to you i’ve started reading it and it’s an incredible book.

    i also think it would be great if you could write down your top 10 books – from your current point of view, for i am sure these are now different book than in 2001 when you started DYD! 🙂

    Thanks!
