Description

A literate and deeply learned meditation on how to recognize and invest oneself in the truly essential aspects of living. We each hold deep-seated beliefs about three facets of our lives: what we do (and are not willing to do); what we know (and are certain that we don't know); and what we are (and are not). These are basic activities and we invest each of them with our life force. Yet they always slip through our fingers: Being, doing, and knowing come and go. In Caught in the Act, Toinette Lippe-with wit, a laser-sharp eye for detail, and a sense of the contemplative-brings us on a journey of daily awareness so that we can truly see the makeup and direction of these forces and how they shape our existence. With this book, we learn to give up the illusion of identifying with the thoughts, things, and activities that we call "I"-a vital step on the spiritual path and in the search for an authentic life.show more
