The Art of Living: Living Within the Laws of Life
SHARE INTERNATIONAL BOOKS
Trade Paperback 215pg
In The Art of Living, Benjamin Creme considers the experience of living as a form of art, like painting or music. To reach a high level of expression requires both knowledge of and adherence to certain fundamental principles. In the art of life, it is through the understanding of the great Law of Cause and Effect, and the related Law of Rebirth, that we achieve the poised harmlessness that leads to personal happiness, right human relations and the correct path for all humanity on its evolutionary journey. Parts Two and Three, “The Pairs of Opposites” and “Illusion”, propose that it is man’s unique position in the evolutionary scheme — “the meeting point of spirit and matter” — that produces his seemingly endless struggle both within himself and in outer living. The means by which he emerges from the fog of illusion, and blends these two aspects of himself into one perfect Whole, is living life itself with growing detachment and objective self-awareness.
