Do you ever have the ecstatic moment when you feel as if you're in the right place at the right time?

Do you remember the exquisite sense of being in love - when you're "home" in your partner's arms, perfectly content and fully present?

Can you think of a time when you felt so connected while working diligently on a particular problem or project that new ideas and solutions suddenly started coming to your mind?

When you're at home in yourself, centered in some essential kernel of what it is to be h
Meh. This book just isn't grabbing me. DNF at page 46. It's a "it's me, not the book" thing, hence the lack of stars. I don't feel it's fair to rate a book I only flipped through the first 46 pages of that just wasn't in my style. Not for me, but it may be for you.

When I first started this book I got depressed because I was trying so hard to relate to what the authors were saying....I stopped reading it and went on to another book. When I came back to it (I had to as it was part of the reading assignment for the course I'm taking) I feel that I must have progressed a little in my growth - I wasn't trying so hard to relate to what they were saying. Instead I read it with an open mind and it was alright NOT to have experienced all that was mentioned in the ...more
The writer's interviewed 27 Spiritual Leaders from many different belief systems and then presented their thoughts in a well organized and thoughtful way. This book has given me much to think about. I'm sure I could read it over and over and get new stuff each time, but probably won't. I really liked that the authors found so much in common to say from so many different perspectives.
I didn't like the format used by the authors. The book was mostly quotes by a particular "Sage" followed by quotes from another "Sage" to clarify and expand. The classic introductory paragraph and conclusion/summary format was not followed. I felt it was too much work to extract the salient information. After several chapters I returned the book to the library.

Shelves: spirituality
A collection of interviews with spiritual leaders (or in the case of the Quakers, spiritual community members) on various issues related to seeking guidance, comprehending the message, and acting on it. Although I just finished it, I want to read it again. I will probably be refering to sections of this book for a long time to come.
Being present in the now and naturally seeking the inner joy to express itself. Seeking inner happiness and purpose for living an authentic life.
