Collected essays by Jorge Waxemberg
"Love is a companion in a work done alone
in the intimacy of each person's heart, mind and soul"
There are moments in life when we become consciously aware of the mystery of existence: when we witness the birth of a child, the unexpected death of a close friend, the discovery of a relative's need for comfort, the awakening to the realization that a lifetime of possibilities and choices lies ahead. Such moments may occur when everything seems to be going along fine, or when we encounter the inescapable sorrows of human life.
These are the moments in which we begin to ask about the meaning of our lives. We may ask such questions as: "Where am I headed? What should I be doing with my life? What is the meaning of my experiences?" For most of us, the answers to these questions remain a mystery, but this does not preclude a search for an answer, and it does not mean that we cannot come closer to an understanding, step-by-step. This search for meaning, this yearning toward the unknown, is the foundation of spiritual life.
In Jorge Waxemberg's book, Living Consciously, we find these questions reflected upon in a remarkable collection of essays on spiritual life. Chapter subjects range from such diverse topics as Physical Health, Moving beyond Prejudices, and Finding the Road, to Mysticism in Our Lives.
Each chapter, in fact, appeared at one time in Seeds of Unfolding, and this new book makes possible an overview of many of his thought-provoking articles written over a 14-year period.
Living Consciously brings together an accessible and inspiring anthology of ideas for enriching our inner lives and concrete means by which to work for the good of humanity.
