The Quiet Mind by John E. Coleman, a former CIA-officer, is a classic story of a search – the personal experience and the discoveries which led one man to a state of mind which has increased the joy of living and the ability to cope effectively with many of life´s problems.
“Part of the mystery of the Far East lies in the fact that in that part of the world the kind of questions to which I wanted answers do not bring raised eyebrows and impatient protests of “nonsense.” Meditation, strange religious practices designed to free the mind even faith in occult powers which throw light on the more obscure mental processes, are not dismissed as unfruitful areas of research.”

Science Without Bounds A Synthesis of Science, Religion and Mysticism by Arthur D’Adamo is a great attempt at discussing and documenting the gap and bridges between previously very diverse ideas. The author writes:
I’ve never seen a book that presents this world view as a harmonious whole, though I’ve seen books that discuss bits and pieces, and even large sections. For a long time I wished such a book existed, a book I could give to my friends and say “Here. This is what I believe.” For years I thought of writing such a book.
