Find context for your experiences. Bring words to silent knowledge, and mostly, broaden yourself. Playing with the same information is a good way to go insane.  These are the books I began with on this inward spiral to the other end. Many aren’t pictured since they’re checked out by friends, but these are a good place to start. Also if your caught in the trend of spiritualism, a lot of which is rooted in eastern culture, please find even a little depth and do some studying. It’s rude to say namaste, practice yoga, or wear an om or yin yang symbol without knowing anything about it. Be respectful. “..and you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself.” - Rumi

“There was no duty for enlightened people, none, none except this: to seek themselves, to become certain of themselves, to grope forward along their own path, wherever it might lead. — I was deeply affected by that, and for me that was the profit from experience. I had often played with images of the future, I had dreamt roles that might be meant for me, as a poet, perhaps, or as a prophet, or as a painter, or whatever else.
That was all meaningless. I didn’t exist to write poetry, to preach sermons, to paint pictures; neither I nor anyone else existed for that purpose. All of that merely happened to a person along the way. Everyone had only one true vocation: to find themselves.”

Autumn must be the season of the soul. The trees are experts at letting go.

“When someone is seeking,” said Siddartha, “It happens quite easily that he only sees the thing that he is seeking; that he is unable to find anything, unable to absorb anything, because he is only thinking of the thing he is seeking, because he has a goal, because he is obsessed with his goal. Seeking means: to have a goal; but finding means: to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal. You, O worthy one, are perhaps indeed a seeker, for in striving towards your goal, you do not see many things that are under your nose.”

Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
