Wisdom and Where to Find ItBook - 1996
Wisdom and Where to Find It is about common questions that are asked, particularly in the early stages of the spiritual life, and arise out of self-enquiry. Such as: What choice do I have? What holds me back? What is truth? Where is the limit to my rational understanding? What are my moral and social obligations? Are they in conflict with the spiritual quest? Barry Long addresses subjects like these with a rigorous rejection of anything not directed towards the highest truth. The book is full of clear, concise statements that challenge readers to match their own wisdom against that of the teacher. Which makes reading the book an actual teaching process. It is composed of five lectures given when Barry Long was starting out as a teacher. Their titles are: The Mystic Death, The Problem of Choice, Why Man Must Suffer, What Man Must Do, and Observation and Meditation.
