From an award-winning poet and spiritual writer comes a beautifully written guide to the life that is meant to be lived--a life of risk, which opens us up to love.
Opening to the pain and joy of being spiritually awake makes us more fully human-more authentic, as the title would have it. This is the message that poet, spirituality teacher, and cancer survivor Nepo offers in a lovely, luminous work that should make a lasting impression on its readers. Nepo asks us to attend to our well-being by stepping back and listening deeply to our own thoughts and emotions. Various insightful chapters focus on learning to center ourselves, journeying with others in the sacred quest, and being present to the venerable unknown. Throughout, Nepo argues that we can come out of our self-centered shells by undertaking small, consistent actions. Advanced students of truth seeking and those who have had an epiphany will connect with the spiritual questions that Nepo asks, but for the uninitiated, it will be slightly rougher going. For psychology/spirituality sections of all public libraries.-Lisa Liquori, MLS, Syracuse, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information. -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.
