North Stars: Resources for our Spiritual Axis
Integral Spirituality – A Startling New Role for Religion in the Modern and Postmodern World
If you’ve ever wanted – all in one place – a clear, mathematical compilation of any possible of view of God, spirituality, religions, culture and their relations to each other in first, second or third person perspectives – this is it. Wilber’s brilliance is combined and compared with those of other deep thinkers and philosophers in charts, graphs, colors and algorithms to offer a new way to see ourselves moving forward through spiritual practices and religious structures. In clear, step-by-step connectivity, Wilber articulates how we can balance our spiritual traditions with scientific, moral and artistic progress experienced through the ages. This balance helps us keep the message of the great sages, but lose the myth and lore: keep the baby, lose the bathwater. Wilber’s dense style and intensity are not for the faint of heart; this is not a book to be skimmed and re-read later. Go all the way in or not at all. If you go all the way in, your view of possibilities for spiritual enlightenment on our beautiful planet will be bright indeed.
