5 Must-Read Books For More Self-Awareness And Spirituality
“Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to each other by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that power and to one another is grounded in love and compassion” – Brene Brown
Love and compassion are the key ingredients here. But where does one learn about love and compassion? Does one achieve love and compassion first through self-love and self-compassion? Where does one learn self-worth, the quality rooted in self-love and self-compassion?
Our role models are found in advertising, the media, social media, or most things out in the public right now. They tell us to change our appearance or change ourselves in some way so that others will like us so that others will love us so that others will see us as beautiful or meaningful. Something amazing about books is that it shares the perspective of some incredibly grounded and self-aware human beings. Some of their books take us on adventures and use our imagination to take us on a journey. While others take us on a self-discovery journey. Here are five must-read books that will build up your self-awareness, self-love, and self-compassion to lead a life grounded in Spirituality.
