Rapsas shows appreciation for Moore's writing

Tom Rapsas pays homage to Thomas Moore in his blog post Is Thomas Moore the Leon Russell of Spiritual Writing? for Elephant Journal. Rapsas writes,
"... Moore had a blockbuster hit with one of his very first books, Care of the Soul in 1992.

What you may not know is that Moore followed up that book with 15 others. Most of these books represent different riffs on a single vital theme, the place of the soul in our everyday lives, including the role it plays in enchantment, at work and even in our sex lives. It’s heady stuff at times, but so well thought out that every word has the distinct ring of truth.

As you can probably tell I’m a huge fan of Moore, his writings resonate in a place deep within me. And in a world where The Secret tops the book charts for over a year, I believe his work gets nowhere near the attention it deserves. Like Leon Russell, Thomas Moore is an example of a great artist whose work has become increasingly and unjustly unnoticed."
In this post, Tapsas includes quotes from four of Moore's books, The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life, Original Self, The Soul's Religion, and The Soul of Sex.
