An active cognizance of our influence on the big-picture flow of creation, in which we all participate, is the responsibility of every human being. It is only through this effort that we can understand those spiritual competencies that are most relevant to the critical cause-and-effect interactions that have the most sway over our existence.

So too is it incumbent on huma

The Irreducible Primary: A Dialogue on Nature, Spirituality, and the Human Condition by Rob Taylor is a unique read with interesting thoughts. As a personal development book, it is helpful to expand and cultivate your individual peace with yourself and others. Control of yourself and your thoughts are important factors in how others perceive you, and the treatment you can expect from your acquaintances. I personally do not agree with his thoughts on spirituality or evolving.

Many of my own thoughts and feelings regarding spirituality align with Rob Taylor's (I believe in Oneness and Connectedness of Life), so I found in this book much wisdom and eloquence. I certainly appreciated the broader outlook, the bigger picture of the division and damage we as humans inflict upon ourselves, each other and life on the planet as a whole. However, on the other hand, whilst much more gentle and inclusive than organised religion, I still found the presentation of information in t ...more

This book is really well-written and was a good read I really enjoyed this new perspective on human life. This book is so well thought out and put together. It was a really good read.
This is as the description says an unapologetic examination of spirituality, nature, and the current state of human interaction. But I find it is so much more than that. And what impressed me most is that the author did not feel the need to quote scripture to make a point. I am religious but I do not feel the need t

I give The Irreducible Primary a rating of five stars as it has been a long time since a work has led me to look at my inner life and primed a desire to make a change. It called me to examine the energy I draw into myself as well as the energy I wish to put out into the world. At a time when one can become frustrated with the direction they see our political and religious institutions moving in, Rob Taylor gives us hope that if we do our own inner work, we can make a difference. I recommend thi ...more

“Mindfulness is the moment-to-moment comprehension of all experiences and conditions presented to us in real time. In the context of inner work, time is the distance between what we believe to be true and our spiritual fulfillment achieved through the experiential, incontrovertible realization of actual truth.” 0 likes
“Spirituality is present solely because human beings exist. The synthesis of spirituality (the energy force of unconditional love) is the extraordinary purpose of the human species. A human being’s decision to opt out (of spiritual effort) does not imply a right to do so. Dodging spiritual responsibility is an act of indifference—or worse.”
