On the Journey

Here is a book I would like to recommend to you, no matter what age you are.  It can serve as a catalyst to spur you on to greater spiritual maturity:

 

In Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life, Fr. Richard Rohr helps us to understand the tasks of the two halves of life and teaches us that those who have failed, or gone down are the only ones who can really understand ‘up.’ Those who have somehow fallen, and fallen well, are the only ones who can grow spiritually and not misuse ‘up.’ What looks like falling down can largely be experienced as ‘falling upward!’

We are here to give back fully and freely what was first given to us – but now writ personally – by us! It is probably the most courageous and free act we will ever perform – and it takes both halves of our life to do it fully. The first half of life is discovering the script, and the second half is actually writing it and owning it.
