The New York Times bestselling author and trusted spiritual adviser offers a follow-up to his classic Care of the Soul. Something essential is missing from modern life. Many whove turned away from religious institutions-and others who have lived wholly without religion-hunger for more than what contemporary secular life has to offer but are reluctant to follow organized religions strict and often inflexible path to spirituality. In A Religion of Ones Own, bestselling author and former monk Thomas Moore explores the myriad possibilities of creating a personal spiritual style, either inside or outside formal religion. Two decades ago, Moores Care of the Soul touched a chord with millions of readers yearning to integrate spirituality into their everyday lives. In A Religion of Ones Own, Moore expands on the topics he first explored shortly after leaving the monastery. He recounts the benefits of contemplative living that he learned during his twelve years as a monk but also the more original and imaginative spirituality that he later developed and embraced in his secular life. Here, he shares stories of others who are creating their own path: a former football player now on a spiritual quest with the Pueblo Indians, a friend who makes a meditative practice of floral arrangements, and a well-known classical pianist whose audiences sometimes describe having a mystical experience while listening to her performances. Moore weaves their experiences with the wisdom of philosophers, writers, and artists who have rejected materialism and infused their secular lives with transcendence. At a time when so many feel disillusioned with or detached from organized religion yet long for a way to move beyond an exclusively materialistic, rational lifestyle, A Religion of Ones Own points the way to creating an amplified inner life and a world of greater purpose, meaning, and reflection. -- File Size: 1MB.

I always want to keep soul and spirit connected. Moore recommends "self-therapy" as an aspect of the Personal Religion. While there certainly is or might be an element of community in this experience, I cannot make a spiritual connection through the one that you have, can I?

Will Tuttle I stir the fire within people, and I do that without apology. Instead of a vague spirituality, it recommends a freshly re-invented notion of religion suited to the 21st century. Don't be too literal about community. Don't be too literal about community. I find Thomas Moore to be condescending.
It is our only real hope for the future of our species because it addresses the cause rather than being concerned merely with effects. You may become eccentric and do things that society questions and your loved ones worry about. Following episodes of harrowing personal crisis, including addictions, periods of anxiety and panic, and reminders of mortality, these accounts then also describe pathways to.
And then of course I realised that this is exactly what I had done in my home. Everyone wants power and everyone is in a constant duplicitous game to gain more power at the expense of others, according to Greene, a screenwriter and former editor at Esquire Elffers, a book packager, designed the volume, with its attractive marginalia.
Would you say that psychotherapy is a religion of sorts in that it helps us to comprehend the incomprehensible?
