For years, this book has been my secret, the tool that I used to help me that I didn't share with anyone. Now that I'm busy creating the life I have always wanted, I understand that there is enough for everyone, and want to share this book with the world. If you want to change your life, if you are seeking for something you can't quite describe, this book may just have your answers. But don't make my m! ! istake and just read it--do the exercises!! That made all the difference for me.
The author of this book, psychiatrist and lecturer Piero Ferrucci, studied under Assagioli. He has written at least six books related to the theory and practice of psychosynthesis, this being the first, published in 1982, the most recent ‘Your Inner Will’ published in 2014. Ferrucci is erudite but very comprehensible. He is not pretentious but realistically and spiritually practical. This is to a large degree a self-help manual to develop keener perception, explore the unconscious, examine our functionality, recognizing our sub-personalities (identities), discover ‘pure’ consciousness, activate the potential of inner love, and many other objectives used to open ourselves to transpersonal wholeness.
Our lives are works in progress and as Ferrucci states: “Awareness of the personal self is a precondition for psychological health.” And further: “The realization of the Transpersonal Self is the mark of spiritual fulfillment.” He concludes the book by saying: “If you work on yourself, you are already participating in the extraordinary, ageless work of overcoming darkness and pain, and of the evocation of latent potential. Take some time to realize that this work is not only your own private project, but the part of a wider unfoldment in which countless individuals are participating in many ways: the evolution of mankind.” This book is not one to read and then put in storage or on the shelf to collect dust. I keep going back to it to help me recognize the role of the personal self and realize the universal unifying presence of the Transpersonal Self.
The book is also an introduction to Psychosynthesis, a guide for enhancing psychological and spiritual growth. It is a philosophy of self-actualization and the art of living. The basic premise is, that we need to combine all the split-off or repressed parts within us into a harmonious whole to feel fully alive and free. In easy chapters, the different concepts are introduced to the reader. Definitely worthwhile reading!
In this classic book Mr. Ferruci reveals his highly creative artistry with words that inspire. Using his excellence as a trained psychologist and spiritual leader, he has produced a very fine synthesis of transforming one's personality through spiritual contact. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who is awakening to the spiritual world.
