A fresh way of thinking about spirituality that grows throughout life In Falling Upward, Fr. Richard Rohr seeks to help readers understand the tasks of the two halves of life and to show them that those who have fallen, failed, or «gone down» are the only ones who understand «up.» Most of us tend to think of the second half of life as largely about getting old, dealing with health issues, and letting go of life, but the whole thesis of this book is exactly the opposite. What looks like falling down can largely be experienced as «falling upward.» In fact, it is not a loss but somehow actually a gain, as we have all seen with elders who have come to their fullness. Explains why the second half of life can and should be full of spiritual richness Offers a new view of how spiritual growth happens?loss is gain Richard. Rohr is a regular contributing writer for Sojourners and Tikkun magazines This important book explores the counterintuitive message that we grow spiritually much more by doing wrong than by doing right.
Dissolve the distractions of ego to find our authentic selves in God In his bestselling book Falling Upward, Richard Rohr talked about ego (or the False Self) and how it gets in the way of spiritual maturity. But if there's a False Self, is there also a True Self? What is it? How is it found? Why does it matter? And what does it have to do with the spiritual journey? This book likens True Self to a diamond, buried deep within us, formed under the intense pressure of our lives, that must be searched for, uncovered, separated from all the debris of ego that surrounds it. In a sense True Self must, like Jesus, be resurrected, and that process is not resuscitation but transformation. Shows how to navigate spiritually difficult terrain with clear vision and tools to uncover our True Selves Written by Father Richard Rohr, the bestselling author of Falling Upward Examines the fundamental issues of who we are and helps us on our path of spiritual maturity Immortal Diamond (whose title is taken from a line in a Gerard Manley Hopkins poem) explores the deepest questions of identity, spirituality, and meaning in Richard Rohr's inimitable style.
Spirituality has been viewed as an important factor in realizing an adequate quality of life. It is regarded as something that contributes to human flourishing, something that advances the quality of life. Generally speaking, millions of migrants all over the world left their homeland due to several factors. It can be economic, political, cultural or religious reasons. The Filipino migrants in the Netherlands come from a country where spirituality matters most. What happens to their search for a greener pasture and their spirituality in a highly secularized country? Thus, this book explores the role of spirituality in the lives of Filipino migrants in the Netherlands. It explores the complex relationship between spirituality and quality of life from a theoretical and an empirical perspective. Does spirituality help them in coping with the challenges and odd circumstances in a far-away land? Or is spirituality a kind of baggage that hinders them to achieve a better quality of life?
