It may seem silly to have a whole page dedicated to books, but for me the written word holds timeless truths. It really is incredible that someone’s fully formed thoughts can be expressed through language, committed to paper, and survive for millennia. That is a feat of human ingenuity.

And we are the beneficiaries of such a global gift. A person’s bookshelf, physical or digital, is a window into one’s entire worldview and subjective experience of reality. Truly, the subjects one reads are the building blocks to one’s perception and attitude towards life.

Haven’t you ever visited a friend’s house for the first time and glanced at their bookshelf? You really do get a glimpse into their inner lives. It’s at least a good conversation starter.

For me, I use my bookshelf as a tool for inner contemplation. Having read around half the books on my current shelf, I’ll make it a practice to simply sit in front and read the titles on the bindings. That one text I read 10 years ago is remarkably connected to the book I read last week – and I still feel that yearning to read that next book I haven’t had the time to dive into yet. You get the picture.

It is believed by some Egyptologists that the ancient hieroglyphs in the temples, such as the Amun-Mut-Khonsu at Luxor, are completely imbued with meaning – with an initiate’s whole curriculum, with fond memories of the teacher, developmental steps along the path to maturity, connected dots in one’s philosophic landscape. The task then for the initiate was to walk slowly through the temple, pausing at each glyph, absorbing the previously learned lessons, moving to the next glyph, building ideas into an inner temple until finally reaching the central sanctum.

This same magic holds true when I look at my bookshelf.

Marcus Aurelius has a segment in his Meditations about creating an inner sanctuary in the mind with maxims and life lessons posted on the walls of an imaginary study. This harkens back to one’s previous studies and holding tight to the gems for later contemplation – especially in times of critical decision making. 

This again is my view on the importance of books in general and of one’s inner journey brought forth through the magic of the printed word carrying timeless truths to posterity. 

You have your own inner sanctum with maxims on the imaginary walls. I hope my sharing of my magical bookshelf will add an idea or two that could help you in the future.
