World Religions and Spiritual Wisdom
Ordinary People as Monks and Mystics outlines "wholesome, spiritual rebellion." It explores key motifs of positive protest as "ordinary" self-actualizing adults describe what values motivate their quiet, responsible creation of the life they love. In this book, the author emphasizes "that the self-actualizing men and women interviewed:
- know, or at least sense, who they are at their most noble, essential core;
- know, or at least sense, what they value in the highest, most elegant terms."
The author has found the most useful question to ask in order to enhance the reader's understanding of the clear difference between the Eastern and Western philosophies and religions, especially the notion of "perfectibility."More info →
