10 Amazing Books that Rocked My Ship in 2022 and More

By Ashan Jay | Updated on January 30, 2023

2022, I found myself moving deeper toward the inner layers of existence away from scientific theories and applications of rat experiments into human behavior. I found myself going deeper into eastern philosophies and teachings – going further into my eastern roots. Once the covers of the three-dimensional view of the scientific world are unveiled, it is hard to look back at little-understood sciences, compared to the vastness of the universe and the multi-dimension human beings we are. Trying to apply linear theories, and try to generalize, categorize, standardize, and replicate existence, seemed such a ludicrous concept anymore.

I could no longer look at this multi-dimensional, non-repeatable, and uniquely perfect existence from a mere three dimension view. Science has done amazing things, but it is only 5 pieces of the million-piece puzzle. These books of great wisdom helped me further my understanding of the vastness of my human existence in this amazing cosmos.

I have linked and bolded the books I found to be the most profound in my journey in the list below. I hope this will serve at least one person to discover hidden guidance in their life.

When I first started keeping records of the books I read, I wanted to read 50, 60, or 70 books in a year. But the more I read, I realized it is never about the number of books I read. It is about understanding, applying, embracing, and letting go of the concepts and philosophies from the books. Then moving on to the next stepping stone, never attaching to the teachings. In my journey, these books have been great stepping stones. You can also discover the books I have read in previous years here: 2021 and 2020
