Suggested Reading



Compiled by Isis and Galaxy
(These books can still be found)

Father shared many books with His Family, especially those which had inspired Jim Baker – in the early stages of his Spiritual quest – before the Family days. These books included many of those which taught the Eastern Wisdom and were given to him by His Father / Teacher – Yogi Bhajan. We recommend any reading that he or his 3HO organization distributes.

As The Family formed, many individuals brought in the books from their own Spiritual quest and wanted to share them.  In the early days we were hungry for any and all knowledge that we could find and did not limit it to any particular source.

Thus we all experienced all Spiritual Paths, Wisdom and knowledge . . . be they Ancient, Mystical or just way ahead of their time.

It may be hard for you to appreciate – it is sometimes difficult for us to remember – but there was no internet . . . we sought out information where and how we could !  Books . . . books were like solid gold to us !    Sometimes our unwavering searches led us to books that were very hard to find . . . or even out of print, etc.

Thus . . . we all experienced together all Religions, all Wisdom, all Knowledge - be they Ancient, Mystical or just way ahead of their time !    Most of it had to be taken on Faith, or in that “Certain knowing”. Together we researched and studied: Reincarnation, Spiritual Exercises, the Meaning of Symbols and Chants, Birth and Death, Life after Death, other Dimensions and Beings and ways of life, Parallel universes, Channeling and the Akashic Records. We studied many cultures including the Egyptians, the Romans, the Hebrews, Tibet, The Crusades, the Pope, the American Indians, the Essenes, the Sufis, various monks, Buddha, Islam and even Camelot . . . as well as the “Whys and wherefores” of the suppression of many of the Truths and Treasures of history. We delved into the Old, New Testament, many of the Revelations of the Bible, great Myths, Elementals, Astrology, Tarot, Magic, the Sacred Sciences of Numbers, Color and Sound ! We studied the power of the spoken and written Word . . . and even that of Thoughts, Actions and Intent !

We studied and meditated upon the programming and make-up of our bodies, itÙs cells, its functions – both physical and Spiritual, it's centers and chakras, the “Over-body”, the Aura, the connections to other dimensions, Stars and Planets. We reviewed the hidden meaning of the symbols of the United States and its seals – secreted in many ways by our founding Fathers, along with the mystical information about them and their intentions for this new dream . . . this United States of America. We not only talked about other Beings, but we saw their ships many times while living at the Father House in the Hollywood Hills.  This was not un-common for many people during this period of time.

And where did all of this lead us ?
To the Ancient and Sacred Name of God !

YHVH !     Yod Heh Vau Heh !
Ya Ho Wha !

We came to realize that our Thoughts, our Food, our choices of Words, the people around us and our daily Spiritual Practices had a very powerful effect on our well being and our ability to move from this somewhat tired timeframe of the Piscean Age . . . to a light, bright, New Age Energy ! This involved the shifting into the Adam Kadmon . . . the prototype of Jesus - the new Spiritual Man of the New Age !

This means that Mankind is now reaching a point at which – collectively – he is radiating enough of the pure vibration to show the Universe (and the encoded cells within our own bodies) that Enough of us are ready to start the shift” ! Enough of us are ready to cross over from this time frame into the next evolution of Mankind . . . to Spirit Man ! To God Man !

The common denominator for all living things is the Ancient Sacred Name of God, which has been encoded in every living cell of every living thing YHVH . . . the “Tetragrammaton” . . .

Thus making us all “ONE FAMILY” . . . in His Name !
