On the night of my 19th birthday in 1977, my father
committed suicide. At the wake there were three aunties who took me and
each of my siblings
aside to console us ( to speak about death and grieving). One auntie
was Baptist, one a Catholic, and another an eccentric eclectic. This
last auntie simply gave me a box of books and said, "read these." That
box changed my life! Included in the books were philosophical writings
by Lao Tze, Patanjali, the Buddha, St John of the Cross, Meister Ekhart,
Plotinus, Annie Besant. But the books that altered my brain, that were
most resonant were by J. Krishnamurti and Ramana Maharshi. Thanks auntie!
