Product description
Soon after his conversion Augustine prayed O God, let me know myself; let me know you." He was convinced that the eventual discovery of God began with a discovery of one's self. In *Let Me Know Myself . . . - , Donald Burt, OSA, offers reflections on what Augustine said about the nature of the *self, - obstacles standing in the way of discovery, and some of what one can learn about oneself from experience and faith. Chapters in Part One: Setting the Scene are: *The Mystery of My Self, - *The Inner and Outer Self, - *Adam's Loss of Self, - *The Old Man and New Man, - *The Cracked Self, - and *The Need for Honesty. - Chapters in Part Two: Obstacles to Self-Discovery are *Earthly Attachment, - *Concupiscence of the Flesh, - *Avarice, - *Concupiscence of the Eyes, - *Worldly Ambition, - and *The 'Make-Believe' Self. - Chapters in Part Three: On the Road to Discoveryare: *The Grace-Filled Self, - *The Fragile Self: Rising Smoke, - *The Imperishable Self, - *The Inner Self and the Flow of Time, - *The Beauty of the Inner Self, - *The Value of My Self, - *The Love of Self, - *Forgetting the Self, - and *Escaping Self. - Donald X.
