The Spectrum of Consciousness
Wilber's groundbreaking synthesis of religion, philosophy, physics, and psychology started a revolution in transpersonal psychology. He was the first to suggest in a systematic way that the great psychological systems of the West could be integrated with the noble contemplative traditions of the East. Spectrum of Consciousness, first released by Quest in 1977, has been the prominent reference point for all subsequent attempts at integrating psychology and spirituality.

I've read this book so many times over the years. I had a first edition that I completely wore out and have replaced at least 10 times since I bought it originally in 1977 when I was 20 years old. This book is a difficult read in the beginning. It has to be read slowly with intent and reflection. I'm not a religious person in the traditional sense. But if I were to have a Bible so to speak, this book is mine.
