Volume 5 (RSTU): Reverence; Shadow; Transformation; Unity

  • Reverence: The sacred is in, with, and behind everything in the world. Writers respond with such gestures as bowing to an orchid and sweeping a city street.
  • Shadow: In the spiritual life, everything belongs, even our dark sides. A classic story about St. Francis and some contemporary examples show us why.
  • Transformation: All the traditions say we can transcend our past and do a new thing. Transformation coud occur while you are making coffee or listening to Hindi film music.
  • Unity: Everything is interconnected. This truth is experienced in mystical moments at the edge of a polluted river, in the office, and holding a wooden kitchen spoon.
