    I've read Fast Food Nation, Belief, The Language of God, and A New Earth. I'm looking for books that open your eyes to a new way of thinking about things and not just taking them as they are. Any suggestions? Thanks!

      Conversations with God is Life Changing. It helped me so much in my spiritual growth. If you life this, you may want to read some of Abraham/Hicks books.
