Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

by Richard Rohr. John Wiley and Sons

Franciscan Friar Richard Rohr tells us that we never stop growing, changing and evolving. That the second half of life is as important as the first (though very different) and not to be missed if one can avoid dying before we have the opportunity to experience it. Rohr's concept of "spirituality" is as much psychology as it is about spirit, reminding us that the "psyche" in psychology means "soul."---MR

The Book: The Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are

by Alan Watts, 1966

During his short life (1915 - 1973), British-born philosopher Watts attempted to lessen the alienation accompanying the experience of being human he felt plagued the modern Westerner and to lessen the ill will toward nature that was an unintentional by-product of it. In this wonderfully integrative book, Watts puts forth a worldview---drawing on Hinduism, Chinese philosophy, Zen, Taoism, Episcopalianism, panentheism and modern science among other paradigms---in which the whole universe (from our point of view) consists of a cosmic self playing hide-and-seek hiding from itself by becoming all the living and non-living things. Watts asserts that our conception of ourselves as an "ego in a bag of skin" is a myth as the entities we call the separate "things" are merely processes of a whole. In reading it, I began to feel my pint of view change, my separateness drop away, and my sense of unity expand into great peace. Highly recommended.
