I’ve been in this life for 50 years, been trying to work out its riddle for 42, and been keeping diaries of clues to that riddle for the last 35. Notes about successes and failures, joys and sorrows, things that made me marvel, and things that made me laugh out loud. How to be fair. How to have less stress. How to have fun. How to hurt people less. How to get hurt less. How to be a good man. How to have meaning in life. How to be more me.
I can’t say enough good things about this book!

Will not enhance your life
Time I can't get back. I expected more but found that it was a look in on his life but did not enhance mine.

- A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life
- Written by: Richard Rohr
- Narrated by: Richard Rohr
- Length: 6 hrs and 27 mins
In the first half of life, we are naturally preoccupied with establishing ourselves; climbing, achieving, and performing. But as we grow older and encounter challenges and mistakes, we need to see ourselves in a different and more life-giving way. This message of falling down - that is in fact moving upward - is the most resisted and counterintuitive of messages in the world's religions. Falling Upward offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life's mysteries: how those who have fallen down are the only ones who understand "up".
Really liked the concepts in this book

No hell. No Adam. No Eve. Salvation needed because of a mistake of God's. Enough said!
