>“I’m often surprised in my therapeutic work when an otherwise mature and discerning adult who is faced with some tough choice collapses everything into the statement “I can’t be selfish.” When I explore this weighty moral imperative with the person further, I usually find that it is tied to a religious upbringing. ”

I feel like there is something to gain from everything you read, but IMO, this is a book that has a very specific niche: those who do not understand myth, psychology, or how systems organize organically regardless of individual neuroticism, and want to understand deeply why all their experiences are not validated in depth by others. If you tie back ignorance about own actions regardless of what that person justifies that action as, all the way to upbringing, you are ignoring all the interactions in between that made that hard to validate any self (adult or child) against, and those exude a similar lack of connectedness to child while having nothing to do with anything religious or upbringing related.… (lisätietoja)

'From time to time I've been jolted byan extraordinary book which stops my world. It forces me to look at reality in a different way-a more expansive and meaningful way. It has provided a missing piece for me.'--John Bradshkaw, author of Homecoming

'The sincerity, intelligence and style-so beautifullly clean-of Tom Moore's Care of the Soul truly moved me. The book's got strength and class and soul, and I suspect may last longer than psychology itself.'--James Hillman, author of Re-Visioning Psychology

'This book just may help you give up the futile quest for salvation and get down to the possible task of taking care of your soul. A modest, and therefore marvelous, book about the life of the spirit.'--Sam Keen, author of Fire in the Belly
