Sabbath

( 8 )

Overview

Thomas Merton, toward the end of his life, warned of a "pervasive form of contemporary violence" that is unique to our times: overwork and overactivity.

Overview

Thomas Merton, toward the end of his life, warned of a "pervasive form of contemporary violence" that is unique to our times: overwork and overactivity. In his work as a minister and caregiver, Wayne Muller has observed the effects of this violence on our communities, our families, and our people. On Sabbath, he responds to this escalating "war on our spirits," and guides us to a sanctuary open to everyone. Muller immerses us in the sacred tradition of the shabbat, the day of rest, a tradition, Muller says, that is all but forgotten in an age where consumption, speed, and productivity have become the most valued human commodities. Inviting us to drink from this fountain of rest and delight, he offers practices and exercises that reflect the sabbath as recognized in Christianity, Judaism, and Buddhism. Through this way of nourishment and repose, Muller teaches, we welcome insights and blessings that arise only with stillness and time. Rich with meditations, poems, and inspiring true stories, Sabbath asks us to remember this most simple and gracious of all spiritual practices.

    Best I have read on why sacred time and space matters

    Muller writes well. He is well read. He speaks across religious traditions. He invites reflection without 'sermonizing.' And he is on target in his assessment of our material culture and how sabbath keeping is revolutionary.

    Let your soul catch up with your body!

    This book was very encouraging to me and I return to it for inspiration and encouragement to live in the moment, breathe deeply, take time for what really matters and to take a regular time to rest. It makes sense to CHOOSE to rest rather than run pell mell, stressing through life until one is FORCED to rest due to illness. Our bodies will eventually rest, but it is much more fun to rest while feeling well than to rest when one cannot even read or watch a movie due to extreme fatigue or depression. Mr. Muller includes ideas for "Sabbath" days. I have found this book to be very helpful in slowing me down. As someone said, "There is more to life than increasing its speed."

    We need this book. Thought provoking, accessible, practical. It aids the practice of mindfulness and living on a human scale. Cultural forces push the individual to exist as an economic unit. Treasures like this book help us live richly as conscious beings.

    A wonderful and wise book

    Mr. Muller's analysis of why we behave the way we do, and how our behaviors diminish our lives is clear and rings true. His recommendations for bringing balance to our lives are thoughtful and approachable. I couldn't be more grateful to my love who gave me this book.
