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.

«Мир внутри» – новая книга из Архива Кришнамурти – представляет собой краткое изложение серии вечных вопросов и непреходящих ответов. Во время Второй мировой войны Кришнамурти жил в Охае в Калифорнии. Люди приходили к нему, чтобы обсудить многие вопросы той эпохи и поговорить о личных трудностях. Их проблемы были всеобщими человеческими проблемами, и каждая из них лишь подтверждала его постулат: «Вы есть этот мир». По мере того как Кришнамурти распутывал туго переплетенные нити людских мыслей и чувств, открывался источник беспокойства, без прикрас, в отсутствии упреков и обвинений. Спустя семьдесят лет эти беседы остаются все такими же свежими, и читатели найдут себя как в поднятых в них вопросах, так и в ответах.
