Book Description

With billions of us sharing this finite planet, how well we live depends on how we care for each other and for this biosphere we inhabit. Our ability to care depends on our inner condition as well as our outer circumstances. Clarity of mind and heart and the balance of self-centered and selfless motivations govern our inner life. Behind everything, illuminating everything, is the sacred, clarifying light, the immanent effulgence that supports this universe and all of us.

This book addresses spiritual practice in depth, from presence to love, showing how each moment, each magnificent, shining moment, welcomes us to the loving reality that we are. 

Light on the Way contains spiritual inner work exercises, each intended for a week-long effort. In this fourth collection of such exercises, all but two are parts of a series, lasting from as few as four to as many as fourteen weeks. Each inner work series offers a progression that can lead to greater depth along a particular dimension of the spirit. For a fully robust soul, we need a spirituality effective for all aspects of our being, along with tools, which, if applied diligently, will enhance the quality of our inner life. These pages offer a way of light, a way of sowing light, that can enable us to fulfill the promise of our birth and participate in the boundless, timeless reality we all share.

This book is a compilation of five years of Weekly Inner Work articles from
