Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life (Unabridged)

by Richard Rohr

Open iTunes to Buy


In the first half of life, we are naturally preoccupied with establishing ourselves; climbing, achieving, and performing. But as we grow older and encounter challenges and mistakes, we need to see ourselves in a different and more life-giving way. This message of falling down - that is in fact moving upward - is the most resisted and counterintuitive of messages in the world's religions. Falling Upward offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life's mysteries: how those who have fallen down are the only ones who understand "up". We grow spiritually more by doing it wrong than by doing it right, and the disappointments of life are actually stepping stones to the spiritual joys in the second half of life.

Really RESONATED with me!

He said things I needed to hear. Gave a picture of sorts of what a person in the second half of life might look like- what they might be experiencing. I wondered if I was going crazy, because not many around me are experiencing this, so I haven't had a mentor to look to. No one to model. This book helped me see God really is in control and to trust him and stop seeking validation from everyone.

Falling upward

I really needed this book it is better than Prozac in giving insight to the suffering and joy of aging
