Reflections of Being
Publisher: Wetware Media
Date: September 2017
Duration: 1 hours 49 minutes
Many of the questions we might struggle with in life-identity in relation to others, authenticity in the face of belief systems, the draw we have to pursue ineffective self-serving urges, and our tendency to conceptualize rather than experience things-are described here in simple, conversational language.
Attempting to grasp what authentic knowledge is, Peter Ralston's queries become a quest for how humans can develop a deeper sense of themselves as participants in the world. Personal, reflective, and gently investigative, these essays have a raw, fresh quality which predates the more formal theory and practice of Peter Ralston's three popular books, The Book of Not Knowing, Pursuing Consciousness, and The Genius of Being.
