Ristian Utopian Literature looking to read this you will uickly see what I am referring to I do not have a problem against spirituality it is a basic facet of our human existence But the author seems to be basing his moral and ethical conclusions on his personal opinion aloneAnother big issue I had reading through this was the reductionism Simple situations such as PTSD resulting from clear childhood or adult trauma are reduced to personality disorders and character disorders It is worrisome to imagine theack of compassion given to some of these case examples It is also concerning his recurring thoughts on psychotherapists falling in In the Zone love with patients or being attracted to patients I wondered than once if his generalization of how often this happens is of an admission of his own personal boundary crossings A few statements he madeeft me rather blown away by his ack of moral compass For example his saying that an open marriage is the best way to go his comments on willingness to sleep with patients his crude thoughts on prostitution He admits he never saw sexual sin as a problem in his ife This is clear and disturbingAll of that to say there are a few worthwhile ideas in this book as well However they are mainly in the first section of the book regarding delayed gratification personal responsibility and adherence to truth I am curious if anyone else had this response to this book Rather than write a plain old review of this book I thought I d make a personal evaluation of it as I think that may be useful to prospective readers so please excuse my individual intimationsThis book was recommended to me by two friends who are a couple whilst at a party After the party I spoke with others who had read the work and received comments as far reaching and contradictory as College Apologetics (with Supplemental Reading life changing on one hand and utter garbage on the other Curious as to what kind of book would produce such vastly opposed opinions I decided to read it and now I understand why it affords such diverse reactionsIn truth I think the attitude of the reader and his or her and reason for reading the book has as much to do with its perceived merit as the content itself Personally I am 47 years old I hold one combined undergraduate degree in philosophy and psychology which I did not enjoy studying for at all and another in computer science theatter now being my professional vocation My second degree was a first class honours as opposed to the 2nd I received for my initial studies and I put that down to my own attitude and acceptance of the new subject in being inherently affiliated with Overlord, Vol. 3 (light novel): The Bloody Valkyrie logic and truth as is the nature of computer scienceThe point I dike to make with this information is that those who come to this book in search of spiritual solace will very Aquagenesis likely find it In the same way if one approaches science religion or the apparent wisdoms and practices of the new age movement with an attitude of openness and trust towards spirituality then one will feel rewarded with the knowledge gained However if one approaches this book out of simple curiosity or with a background of knowledge of philosophy and psychology that brings a degree of skepticism towards the author s esoteric answers of religion and spirituality then the work appears sadly flawed though not as some people suggest to it s utter destructionIn fact much of the book is very interesting as it describes accurately in psychoanalytical terms what other authors of fiction attempt to illustrate about the nature of the efforts and attitudes of contented adults in civilised western society To theay reader this gives insights into the benefits of personal discipline the facets of Dark Intrusions longasting stable relationships as opposed to the musings of new found ove and the well described problems and solutions in overcoming one s own inhibiting beliefs For this I will credit the authorContrarily in the atter part of the book M Scott Peck continues to explain aspects of human endeavour but engages in a discourse on his views on spirituality and religion He proposes that all human beings have a religion that science is a religion as well as atheism and spends some considerable effort in describing matters that he considers as being actually miraculous He appoints as miracles the abundance of healthy humans despite what he considers the apparent fragility of body and mind He presents personal anecdotes regarding his own near death experience and mundane coincidences as the evidence of miracles and shared consciousness and employs the wonder and improbability of evolution over physical entropy to project to the reader the idea that the world as we know it is governed by what he describes as grace a mysterious divine power that is in eternal conflict with entropyThis Decade of Despair latter discussion shows the age of the book since it was written in theate 1970 s and the physics and mathematics of the day were without the computers to create virtual models by which to study such physical manifestations as entropy In What Was Lost light of this the author s assertions are highly selective He describes entropy the reduction of energy dispersion to a chaotic state as the final overarching physical attribute of matter He ignores the fact that molecular compounds combine through electron bonding due to electro magnetic attraction In fact one only has toook at a simple magnet to see that energy in the form of a magnetic field can and does indeed have a great deal of order to its form and is not simply a matter of chaotic entropic dispersal Not only that but this process of compound formation gives rise to Go-Go-Go! literally every type of physical matter each having differentevels of combined resilience eg soap diamonds and amino acids whose existence are not governed by entropy but merely affected by it in terms of their existential Somato Respiratory Integration Workbook longevityAs with evolution one of the great mysteries ofife is the development of consciousness yet here the author once again attributes it s existence as another miracle Asserting that this is a particularly human trait he goes further to make additional assertions on human evolution attributing the nature of evi. Eless in its message of understanding The Road Less Traveled continues to enable us to explore the nature of Reine Mädchensache loving relationships andeads us toward a new serenity and fullness of Animal Babies life It helps us determine how to distinguish dependency fromove; how to become a sensitive parent; and ultimately how to become one's own true self Recognizing that Lif.

L to entropy going so far as to suggest that human Offenders and Detainees lethargy is in fact entropy manifested as evil and that it isaziness and a qasas-ul-quran lack of application of the author s conceptualove and discipline that is the major cause of psychological problems in human beings As examples the author then actually uses biblical images the serpent and apple on the tree of knowledge the crucifixion of Christ and the concept of original sin and simply adapts them to suit his reasoning That the concept of original sin is a ater idea projected onto the Gospels of Genesis by St Augustine and absorbed by Roman Catholicism in the 16th century seems to be idly ignored so It seems aziness of the mind can also extend to celebrated psychoanalystsAlso at no point is there any reference to the nature of suffering that the author s described sentient god is willing to assert not only on humanity but on all of nature with disease starvation and the cruel predations of all manner from the microbic virus to the Dead-End Road Mysteries leaping tiger uite how that is part of entropicethargy and is entirely acceptable to a divine creator is Hear the Wolves left entirely untouchedAs the book begins to draw to its final chapter M Scott Peck actually acknowledges that he cannot fully describe his model for grace nor does he accurately describe the conditions by which some are capable of attenuating thisackadaisical evil other than by having the good fortune to be Blessed perhaps just having Valors Measure loving parents and maybe an effective education or basically be fortunate enough to be raised as a well adjusted human being and not feel the need to seek the advice of a psychoanalystIn closing the writer begins to slip into dogma I have interpreted Christ s saying Many are called but few are chosen to mean that very few choose to heed the call of grace because of the difficulties involved then a few pagesater claims that the study of theology is a relatively poor method of preparation and by itself completely useless going to claim that such a paradox is an emblem of his previously purported miracle of serendipityAt the BFI Film Classics last he then finishes the book with aengthy flourished chapter charged with absolution and encouragement meant to embolden the reader to go forth with Grace into the miraculous world and enjoy their new found higher knowledge to the betterment of humanityThere is a brief afterword that acknowledges all the praise given to the author but noticeably no criticism and advises the reader seeking psychological therapy on best ways to do soSo still hereFor me since this book presents itself as an advisory and as good counsel for those in search of spiritual enlightenment then I feel is necessary to go further than offer a basic critiueTo be blunt if one is to take baking advice from a baker then his bread had better be good It is in this respect that having Tni Tata Dunia Baru Sistem Pertahanan looked at M Scott Peck s bibliography and personalife I find reason to distance myself from his work That in 2005 he felt compelled to write his personal account of demonic possession and the exorcisms he has personally performed as well as his catalogue of other books dedicated to those who are in search of enlightenment وصف الاستعباد في مملكة فاس - مذكرات أسير سويدي على عهد السلطان مولاي عبد الله leaves me with a sense of a man who is pandering to those who are willing to accept truth as something they should be told as opposed to something they are capable of accepting and deciding for themselves To me faith and spirituality whatever the denomination reuires that the believer who will appoint himself as preacher should be able to personally attest to its benefits by their own actions So to the man himself a self confessed philanderer a divorcee who chooses to drink and smoke marijuana whoives estranged from two of his own children I can only offer dubious respect to his professional and academic credentialsFinally if I were to offer any advice to the prospective reader before embarking on this book first read Battle For The Mind by William Sargant Another highly controversial psychologist this author at Fiend least describes the processes by which M Scott Peck seems to make aiving without the veil of piety This book is a bridge between psychology and spirituality I wish I had read it earlierIt is divided into four parts1 DISCIPLINE Brilliant and a totally different take on what discipline actually is Voice of Conscience love2 LOVE Again mind blowing and myth busting take on trueove and the myth of romantic PROBE MY ASS (A Reluctant Doctor/Patient Anal Sex erotica story) love This is theongest part of the book and obviously very emotionally challenging to read If there was a course on The Pedlar and the Bandit King (Scarlet and the White Wolf, love in school it wouldook somewhat Marvins Room like this book3 GROWTH and RELIGION The concept that everyone has a religion because everyone has some belief system even atheists or agnostics This chapter gives specific examples on how religion can hinder someone s spiritual journey or how it can heal someone s spiritual journey and put them on a fast track This being the shortest chapter I wish there were examples but it has good insights anyway4 GRACE I commend the author s tact in dealing with this subject of God and grace in terms of the unconscious and consciousness This part is what deals with the purpose and meaning ofife and how to find it or how to Roberto to the Dark Tower Came let it come to you the paradox ofifeOverall here s my take if there was one book just one to teach us the basics of how to Polyphemus live aife and not just a Pink Ribbons, Inc. living it would be this book No school or university can give academic degrees inove courage and wisdom this book is the crash course The book is a series of examples of people in therapy with the author and his insights on their progress or Star Cookies Comfort lack thereof and what makes them heal faster or what hinders the healingRecommended for anyone dealing with anxiety stress depression panic attacks existential crisis moral dilemmas etcand for anyone who thinks they are in total control of theirife physical emotional spiritual it might shake up the control aspect a bit but totally worth it Everyone needs some therapy if they have survived childhood I bought a paperback copy of the book by Random House the print and binding are okay but the fonts are small and it s easy to get Mail Horror Bride (One Nation Under Zombies lose sight ofine while readin.
