Book Overview

This perennial book features daily meditations, each written by Rohr and adapted or excerpted from his many written and recorded works. The meditations are arranged around seven themes:

  1. Methodology: Scripture as validated by experience, and experience as validated by tradition, are good scales for one's spiritual worldview
  2. Foundation: If God is Trinity and Jesus is the face of God, then it is a benevolent universe. God is not someone to be afraid of, but is the Ground of Being and on our side.
  3. Frame: There is only one Reality. Any distinction between natural and supernatural, sacred and profane is a bogus one.
  4. Ecumenical: Everything belongs and no one needs to be scapegoated or excluded. Evil and illusion only need to be named and exposed truthfully, and they die in exposure to the light.
  5. Transformation: The separate self is the problem, whereas most religion and most people make the shadow self the problem. This leads to denial, pretending, and projecting instead of real transformation into the Divine.
  6. Process: The path of descent is the path of transformation. Darkness, failure, relapse, death, and woundedness are our primary teachers, rather than ideas or doctrines.
  7. Goal: Reality is paradoxical and complementary. Non-dual thinking is the highest level of consciousness. Divine union, not private perfection, is the Read More chevron_right

   Yes and ponder
This is a book that w. ill makes you ponder. I read a page every day and helps me get out of me and into a deeper state.
   Richard Rohr classic
This was used in a faith sharing group and found it to be a great starting point for deep discussions.
As usual, this author continues to lead us on our journey with his insightful and gentle writing. His persistent themes are what makes so attractive about his books.
   richard rohr is insightful
It is worth the time and effort daily to read and reflect on.
   every day a new topic to ponder. stick with it for a fulfilling year.
For many years, Richard has been my teacher.
   I cherish this book!
Few meditation books have given me so much to think about and revealed so many of my latent attitudes and dispositions that undermine being a true disciple of Christ. Many times I have to process a meditation over and over again for several days, in order to read what Fr. Rohr says,
   Just what I was looking for
I found out who is Richard Rohr just recently. I love his was of communicating his message without being judgmental, but honest. He speaks about what I have felt in my heart and soul, but I have not been able to put into words. It is also quite heavy. I was surprised by the weight ''.
   Printing error
This is obviously a reprint of the last chapter. The last chapter was MISSING, and the next chapter was printed twice.
   Transformative reflections
The daily reflections are just what I was hoping for. They help me make friends with Christianity after growing up in a home where Jesus, God, and the Bible we have used and used to control me with shame. I now practice meditation and shambhala Buddhism, and these daily meditations welcome me home to all love and justice present in the Bible and Jesus'example. I feel like I am reading words that describe my deepest experiences, feelings and longings that I have never discussed or put into words.
I was drawn by some of R. Rohr's meditations and thoughts into some shared friends. I bought this book and was intrigued by his intellectual remarks and deep thinking on many entries. With each read, however, something nags me and forces me to dig deeper. I realize that the Holy Spirit has given me the gift of discernment. A lot of this book does not line up with the Scriptures. I never want to crush anyone's spirit who is seeking earnestly, but I hope you will approach this book with caution. See the truth .
