Meditations: On the Monk Who Dwells in Daily Life

Thomas Moore, Author HarperCollins Publishers $15 (107p) ISBN 978-0-06-017223-7
In this small book, bestselling author Moore (Care of the Soul, etc.) makes a simple point: The monastic life offers lessons that, once learned, will enhance the spiritual dimension of daily life. He teaches this message in brief prose selections, which he calls ``seeds,'' each of which highlights a particular virtue of monasticism that, if planted in the midst of worldly concerns and nurtured by careful practice, will reach fruition in the soul-centered life. From the example of the monk, as Moore narrates, we learn that a certain kind of work feeds the soul; that we need to become experts in emptiness; and that study amplifies the music of the world. This is not a book to read over from cover to cover; it is a book to carry around and savor in moments of individual meditation. BOMC and QPB alternates. (Nov.)
