Riassunto: This book gives you ten new commandments for coping with the stresses, strains and pressures of modern-day living. Looking always with the inner eye, it is a book in search of psychological truth - the truth from which people are made and live. It describes the energies and textures of our life - emotional, mental, visceral, spiritual - and discerns the 'sorryness and grandeur' in all. The ten new commandments offered are ten skilful attitudes in pursuit of the beautiful life. Our past has made us, but does not define us, and we each have a genius for the future through simple attention to familiar things. The book draws on a wide tradition of human experience, and using story, illustration and comment, invites us to be alchemists for our own transformation. It is a handbook for those who know that something is always over - and that something has always begun. It suggests the work of life - the work beneath all other work.
L'autore: Simon Parke has written satire for radio and TV, picking up a Sony Radio Award. He was a priest in the Church of England for twenty years but now works in a supermarket, where he is Chair of the shop Union. He leads retreats, follows the beautiful game and lives in London.
