A journey into the second half of our own lives awaits us all. Not everybody goes there, even though all of us get older, and some of us get older than others. A "further journey" is a well kept secret, for some reason. Many people do not even know there is one. There are too few who are aware of it, tell us about it, or know that it is different from the journey of the first half of life. So why should I try to light up the path a little? Why should I presume that I have anything to say here? And why should I write to people who are still on their first journey, and happily so?
From Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life by Richard Rhor.
I highly recommend this book. In the margin in the Introduction I wrote: "How do I put this? This guy's a fucking sage!"
I guess that would be my short review.
Here you go.
