by Elaine Yoshikawa
From the wisdom of the ancient Greek philosophers to the penetrating insights of the Dalai Lama, this book takes you on a journey that explores the transitional shift from living in the everyday world to living in the sacred world–a spiritual world of virtue, authenticity, compassion, and unconditional love. This book is for anyone who has felt there is more to life or who has experienced the call to live a deeper, more meaningful life.
It is time for the best parts of us to shine through. This book articulates what is required to live authentically as a spiritual being having a human experience. It offers a process for understanding the nature of spirituality, the requirements of unconditional love and genuine compassion, and the ways in which we can recognize and tame the demands of the ego.
By merging philosophy, moral psychology, Buddhist ethics, Christian ethics, and insights from the perennial wisdom literature, the author provides both a reasoned discourse and an inspirational account of the kind of life that we can aspire to lead: a life of virtue, a life of unconditional love, a life filled with purpose and meaning, and finally, a life of human flourishing.
