Personal development includes facing your shadow
Do you distinguish between "self help" and "personal development" books? Robert Everett does in his blog post today: "Personal development requires that you take a deep look at yourself, both good and bad, discover your truth, and then find a way to live that truth in a positive and productive way." Everett includes Thomas Moore in his list of recommended authors:
"No, I'm not talking about the historical Thomas Moore. I'm talking about the modern-day author, psychologist, musician, blogger, spiritual seeker. His books on the soul and soulfulness are poetic and profound, bringing a lyrical quality to an often cut-and-dry field. His works are a must-read for anyone wanting to merge spirituality and soul into their daily lives."Read Everett's post if you'd like to consider additional writers he endorses.
