Our Sacred Dimension: The Sanctity of the Common Man

by Halina Romanowska-Lakomy (Author)
Our Sacred Dimension makes an important contribution to the anthropological, philosophical and psychological consideration of man in our era. It explores the role of the sacred in our lives, how it constitutes an antidote to the deterioration of our Personhood and to suffering, and how recent history has facilitated the withdrawal of our minds into a narrowly understood mechanical and material realism that in effect puts a shroud over our ability to perceive, and live, our lives in their full dimensions. This book identifies the problem of modern egoism and explains the nature of sacredness in our lives. It encourages us to explore the sacred and instructs us how to do so. This is not a primer for ascetics, but a handbook for realizing our spiritual potential in our secular lives. This book is a call to reflection in a fast-paced, commercialized and self-centred world. Every person, regardless of their past, can rise to the sacred and realize their personhood.
