Falling Upward: A Spirituality For The Two Halves Of Life
About this deal
There would not really be any change at all, but only disguise, just bogus self-improvement on our own terms. I love the way reading and studying Scripture and theology has deepened my faith, broadened my vision, enriched my ministry and changed my life.
The Two Halves of Life — Center for Action and Contemplation
It has been acceptable for some time in America to remain "wound identified" (that is, using one's victimhood as one's identity, one's ticket to sympathy, and one's excuse for not serving), instead of using the wound to "redeem the world," as we see in Jesus and many people who turn their wounds into sacred wounds that liberate both themselves and others.I felt that for years - until I woke up and suddenly saw the debasement of value which is in multitasking entropic movement. Adapted from Richard Rohr, Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life (Jossey-Bass: 2011), 8.

If you’re expecting a book about how the gospel and following Jesus lead us to maturity and into the “second half of life”, this is not the book for you.When religion does not move people to the mystical or the non-dual level of consciousness, it is more a part of the problem than the solution whatsoever. They are in awe before the abyss of it all, in wonder at eternity and depth, and a Love, which is incomprehensible to the mind.
