    Thought Provoking...

    I was a little disappointed because ' A Road Less Traveled' was a pretty good book. On this tape('Further Along the Road Less Traveled') Mr. Peck asserts that one of the major conditions for mental health is to realize that nothing is certain,no one really knows anything.( Although he assert this with Certainty.) Mr.Peck further elaborates that one must develop a 'taste for mystery' by constantly re-evaluating and re-inventing ones view(s) of reality. This is true, but it is only 'half true'. Another condition for mental health is to have convictions,having a goal and focus in life, cannot manifest without some certainty. Mr.Peck seems to fail to point out that mental imbalances like confusion,despair,listlessness and un-motivation, often come from avoiding the responsibility that intergrated knowledge brings.Questioning is fine, because we can know the truth.Allthough it is an imbalance to not accept an answer because we want to'taste mystery'. Mr.peck also asserts that some religious/spiritual practitioners enter into their practice to 'escape the mysteries of life'-this is true-but any bona fide religion points out the pitfalls of 'blind' and narrow following a religious process. Much more people avoid religious & spiritual thought to avoid lifes deepest myteries and questions. I feel Mr.Peck has probably considered this, because he comes across as an intelligent and caring person.But, the over all impression to me of this tape is nihlistic.
