Huh, no one mentioned the most obvious: Francis of Assisi.

I also would nominate one whom few seem to have heard of: Erwin Raphael McManus, author of The Barbarian Way.  Whenever someone asks for recommendations of Christian books, The Barbarian Way is really the only one I feel I can in good conscience recommend.

Just returned to the poetry of William Wordsworth via the rereading of Zen in English Literature and Oriental Classics by RH Blyth - so those two.  Blyth offers important insights into Wordsworth especially, but also Thoreau and many others.  Wordsworth's love and response to the land I'm really enjoying right now.

Karen, thank you for introducing me to this wonderfully wise man. I'm hooked completely. His words ring so true.

Hazrat Inayat Khan:

 

"'There is One Holy Book, the sacred manuscript of nature, the only scripture which can enlighten the reader.'

Most people consider as sacred scriptures only certain books or scrolls written by the hand of man, and carefully preserved as holy, to be handed down to posterity as divine revelation. Men have fought and disputed over the authenticity of these books, have refused to accept any other book of similar character, and, clinging thus to the book and losing the sense of it, have formed diverse sects. The Sufi has in all ages respected all such books, and has traced in the Vedanta, Zend-Avesta, Kabbala, Bible, Quran, and all other sacred scriptures, the same truth which he reads in the incorruptible manuscript of nature, the only Holy Book, the perfect and living model that teaches the inner law of life: all scriptures before nature's manuscript are as little pools of water before the ocean.

To the eye of the seer every leaf of the tree is a page of the holy book that contains divine revelation, and he is inspired every moment of his life by constantly reading and understanding the holy script of nature.

When man writes, he inscribes characters upon rock, leaf, paper, wood, or steel. When God writes, the characters He writes are living creatures.

It is when the eye of the soul is opened and the sight is keen that the Sufi can read the divine law in the manuscript of nature; and that which the teachers of humanity have taught to their followers was derived by them from the same source. They expressed what little it is possible to express in words, and so they preserved the inner truth when they themselves were no longer there to reveal it."

Eckhart Tolle : The Power of Now
Comment by Rick Koobs on October 14, 2010 at 6:04pm
Yes! -- Julian of Norwich. I live 30 miles outside of Norwich, and have been to the Julian church and taken communion in her (reconstructed) cell. Eckhart... check. Lao Zi, of course. I could make a list of influences a mile long, but they all know who they are.

I'd add Diarmuid O'Murchu to this. He has been a strong voice for Creation Spirituality on all levels. A link: http://www.diarmuid13.com/
