Book Description

Sept. 1 2009

For Christians seeking a way of thinking outside of strict dualities, this guide explores methods for letting go of division and living in the present. Drawn from the Gospels, Jesus, Paul, and the great Christian contemplatives, this examination reveals how many of the hidden truths of Christianity have been misunderstood or lost and how to read them with the eyes of the mystics rather than interpreting them through rational thought. Filled with sayings, stories, quotations, and appeals to the heart, specific methods for identifying dualistic thinking are presented with simple practices for stripping away ego and the fear of dwelling in the present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reconciliation of spirituality and religion Feb. 19 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favourite books, as well as one of my most recommended. This book played a critical role in my spiritual journey and life as it provided a reconciliation between what religion has brought into my life and where my spiritual journey was taking me. I had a lot of questions and this brought a tremendous amount of peace and provided the connections I was looking for.

I really appreciate Richard's background in the Catholic church as the source for this wisdom.

Only drawback is the title. Many of my more strict Christian friends, who I firmly belive would love and appreciate this book, are thrown and turned off by the word "mystic", and therefore choose not to read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seek and you shall find Dec 21 2009
Simone Weil was a true seeker and "The naked Now" would most likely have answered

many of her questions.

After reading Richard Rohr one simply says: "How could I have gone through life

without anyone teaching me this ?"
