9780060955588: Eternal Echoes: Celtic Reflections on Our Yearning to Belong

There is a divine restlessness in the human heart today, an eternal echo of longing that lives deep within us and never lets us settle for what we have or where we are. Now, in this exquisitely crafted, inspirational book, John O'Donohue explores that most basic of human desires - the desire to belong. It is a desire that constantly draws us towards new possibilities of self-discovery, friendship and creativity.

In Eternal Echoes John O'Donohue embarks upon a journey of discovery into the heart of our post-modern world - a hungry, homeless world that suffers from a deep sense of isolation and fragmentation. With the thousand-year-old shelter of divine belonging now shattered, we seem to have lost our way in this magical, wondrous universe.

Here, as we explore perennial themes and gain insight from a range of ancient beliefs, we draw inspiration from Ireland's rich spiritual heritage of Celtic thought and imagination. It is a heritage of profound, mystical wisdom that will open pathways to peace and contentment, and lead us to live with creativity, honour and compassion the one life that has been given to us.

Destined to become a timeless classic of vision and hope, this is an imaginative tour de force by one of today's most inspirational writers.

Review:

John O'Donohue ( Anam Cara), a Celtic poet, scholar and philosopher with an Irish brogue, speaks to the deepest calling of our soul: the longing to belong. "To be human is to belong", he explains. "Belonging is a circle that embraces everything; if we reject it, we damage our nature. The word 'belonging' holds together the two fundamental aspects of life: Being and Longing, the longing of our Being and the being of our Longing". Although this may sound like an elaborate Celtic circle knot, O'Donohue has nevertheless woven a solid and easy-to-grasp book that speaks to the soul's constant yearning. Every passage is a delight for the senses, as O'Donohue shares his lilting poetic language, his Celtic imagery and stories and his fireside-chat wisdom. This is a broad-reaching yet highly focused book that dares to explore the realm of legitimate angels, the meaning of suffering and, most poignantly, how life on earth may never quench the soul's thirst for belonging. -- Gail Hudson

Review:

"As diaphanous and beautiful as the spiritual reality he is portraying, Eternal Echoes speaks to the soul" (Larry Dossey, author of Recovering Your Soul)
