Falling Upward by Richard Rohr, 2011; 240 pages. From the publisher:
Richard Rohr helps us to understand the tasks of the two halves of life and teaches us that those who have failed, or gone down, are the only ones who can really understand "up." Those who have somehow fallen, and fallen well, are the only ones who can grow spiritually and not misuse "up." What looks like falling down can largely be experienced as "falling upward!"
This book held up a mirror for me. It showed me, I’m not as mature as I think I am. This was at times painful but always and ultimately liberating. Reading it was like being given a map and a GPS: there is where I was, here is where I am now, and there is the territory I’ll journey through next. I recommend this book for people in every stage of life.
