Finished the Dali Lama book. It was a bit disappointing.
But never the less, have picked up the following:
--Awareness, by Anthony de Mello. Argues for an increased awareness of ourselves, others, things, and God; the connectedness of all; and the tentativeness of physical existence.
--Traditions of the Ancients, by Marcia Ford. A quick little read that rehearses several spiritual disciplines not normally covered (e.g., prayer shawls, memorial meals) as well as more common ones. I like her style - personable without being too familiar.
--Reaching Out, by Nouwen. Explores a developing spirituality that becomes more aware of others' needs and encourages us to leave our safe places and minister to people we might otherwise avoid.
