Take this book seriously

Jack Kornfield is one of the few thinkers who writes about the intersection of traditional, academic thought and personal, faith-based spirituality. The result is an astonishingly successful blend of philosophy, memoir, and literary commentary. While Kornfield's spiritual background is Buddhist, he is aware of and receptive to the theories of enlightenments in all major religions and even the more secular Emersonian beliefs that have helped shape American spirituality.

The book is not tightly organized, but is written in a series of short sections, which variously touch on Kornfield's personal history, his current belief system, and his favorite authors, blending them into a coherent whole. I found the sections on T.S. Eliot and Walt Whitman to be among the most insightful commentaries on their work available to the lay reader.

At the same time that Kornfield is astonishingly well-read and deeply wise, he is never scolding or pedantic. As his title suggests, he is well aware of our human foibles and failings, and he displays a deep understanding and tolerance of the ways in which most of his readers will fall short of the example he sets.

This is Kornfield's finest work, and a book that be read for decades to come by those interested in exploring their spirituality.

Useful insights...

I found this book to be just what I needed. Jack Kornfield has a balanced view of psychology and spirituality bringing about the importance in walking the middle way in all aspects of our lives. He validated many things I have learned through my life and provided useful insights into my spiritual practice. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn how to bring the sacred into their ordinary life!
