SOMETIMES GIFTS TAKE A WHILE TO PAY DIVIDENDS

Someone gave me a book in 1994 that jumped off my bookshelf today and I began reading. The title, Care of The Soul,by Thomas Moore, a therapist, works for me without even reading a page.

He presents a model that says,

Care of the soul is a continuous process that concerns
itself not so much with "fixing" a central flaw as with attending
to the small details of everyday life, as well as to major
decisions and changes.

In care of the soul, we ourselves have both the the task and the
pleasure of organizing and shaping our lives for the good of the
soul.

This is precisely the antidote and salve in world run wild. Can't wait to read on and share.

Have a caring for the soul weekend. Not just yours, but those you love.

Bye For Now,

Bill

  1. Hi Bill,
    Yes, please continue to share your reactions to Thomas Moore's Care of the Soul and if you find a growing interest in his work, you may want to visit Barque, a blog dedicated to him at barque.blogspot.com. Moore's new book, Care of the Soul in Medicine will be released this year.
