5.0 out of 5 stars A Quick Guide to Spiritual Wisdom

Reviewed in the United States on September 27, 2021

It is a huge challenge to present a long study of spiritual philosophy in short bursts of understanding but Manogue does just that with this book. Such a diverse array of thoughtful contemplations as Ken Wilber to Thomas Merton to Rumi and Rilke and like those last two poets, the poet in Manogue is allowed to come out and play alongside them. I found the short essays most useful, especially the summary of Wilber's Eight Awareness Waves encountered early in the book because I knew of him but not what his perspective was. Every essay illuminates the thoughts in the poem that precedes it at a soul understood level.

I also appreciated meeting some thinkers in Manogue's book who were totally new to me, even though I've studied such thinking for 3 decades now. Anyone who is just dipping their awareness into spiritual philosophy will come away from reading this book with a foundation that would have taken them a long time to acquire and from there they can go off on their own path to their own new discoveries.
