Spirituality

My decision to assemble the Book List portion of this site is because many of the people that I counsel with, know, or meet along the way seem to have deep hunger for knowledge and appreciate the books I recommend.

So, with that as my motivator, and in the same spirit as the articles section, I have assembled a relatively long list of books that I have found very useful in my learning over the last 30 years and that have stood the test of time. They are listed under a variety of topics, also like the articles section, and have icons displayed on topic pages that will allow you to click directly to Amazon in order to purchase them.

Spirituality

For love in a time of conflict:
When the gentleness between you hardens
and you fall out of your belonging with each other,

May the depths you have reached hold you still.

When no true word can be said, or heard,
and you mirror each other in the script of hurt,
When even the silence has become raw and torn,
May you hear again an echo of your first music.

When the weave of affection starts to unravel
and anger begins to sear the ground between you,
Before this weather of grief invites
the black seed of bitterness to find root,
May your souls come to kiss.

Now is the time for one of you to be gracious,
To allow a kindness beyond thought and hurt,
Reach out with sure hands
To take the chalice of your love,
and carry it carefully through this echoless waste
Until this winter pilgrimage leads you
Toward the gateway to spring.

John O'Donohue, A Book of Blessings, (2008)

"Dear God:
Please untie the knots that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots,
the can nots and the do nots that I have in my mind.
Erase the will nots,
may nots,
might nots that may find a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.
And most of all,
Dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind,
my heart and my life, all of the 'am nots' that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough. Amen."
- Author unknown, The Knots Prayer
