What the Mystics KnowIons on Christian and Jewish scriptures while citing the greatest religious writers throughout the ages Rohr offers an unparalleled window into the wisdom of the mystics within a succinct volume that represents the best treasury of his vast library of writi. I liked this little book though if you've read much Richard Rohr you might find uite familiar with good reason this is a book of excerpts from his other writings It's a nice summary of his beliefs about spiritual growth and enlightenment including growing out of our egoic self preoccupations and into compassionate non dualistic thinking less othering and judging It's unusual for a spiritual or mystical book to track so directly with the day's headlines but it's impossible not to think about my fellow Americans refusing to wear masks because it infringes on their freedom when doing so would literally save the lives of others Or about millions of white people yammering about their their precious heritage of slave holding while ignoring black people being murdered in the streets and jails by law enforcement officials They seem concerned about statues made of stone than their fellow citizens made of flesh and blood I could uibble with the structure of What the Mystics Know the seven pathways seem forced and kind of random This is probably because the editor who came up with the idea died part way through the writing so I think the big picture may have been lost But since the readings are in small bites and the book doesn't pretend to be a straight narrative the structure isn't too distracting and there are plenty of wonderful Rohr nuggets throughout This makes a fine daily reader for meditation and journaling and I think I'll be using it for years to comeHis last section on transforming others and society is timely and hopeful but realistic He recognizes that in North America our economy our self image our very psyche have lived in a triumphalist and paranoid stance for so long that it will be hard to change to a positive and creative mode a new way of living based on faith instead of fear peacemaking instead of moneymaking community instead of competition May it be so
