Between the Dark and the Daylight: Embracing the Contradictions of Life by Joan Chittister (Author)

“There is a part of the soul that stirs at night, in the dark and soundless times of day, when our defenses are down and our daylight distractions no longer serve to protect us from ourselves,” writes beloved author, Joan Chittister. “It’s then, in the still of life, when we least expect it, that questions emerge from the damp murkiness of our inner underworld…These questions do not call for the discovery of data; they call for the contemplation of possibility.”

In words as wise as they are inspiring, Between the Dark and the Daylight explores the concerns of modern life, of the overworked mind and hurting heart. These are the paradoxical—and often frustrating—moments when our lives feel at odds with everything around us.

Only by embracing the contradictions, Chittister contends, may we live well amid stress, withstand emotional storms, and satisfy our yearnings for something transcendent and real. By delving into the chaos, this book guides us through the questions that seemed easier to avoid and enlightens what has been out of focus.

With her signature elegance, wit, and spirit, the bestselling author of The Gift of Years and Following the Path opens our eyes and hearts in these times of confusion. With simple and poignant meditations, Between the Dark and the Daylight reveals how we can better understand ourselves, one another, and God.

JOAN CHITTISTER is an internationally known author and lecturer, and the executive director of Benetvision, a resource and research center for contemporary spirituality. She is past president of the Conference of American Benedictine Prioresses and the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. Her books include The Gift of Years, The Breath of the Soul, Called to Question, and Following the Path. She is a member of the Benedictine Sisters of Erie, Pennsylvania.

The Power of Purpose | Steve Taylor | TEDxSquareMile


Published on Feb 2, 2015
This inspirational talk explores the power of purpose in our life. The reason that purpose is crucial to our lives is because it brings us motivation, orientation, resilience and positivity. Without purpose, it’s easy for us to feel adrift and disoriented in our lives. We become more vulnerable to boredom, anxiety and depression. But a strong sense of purpose has a powerful positive effect. We feel part of something bigger than ourselves, more energetic and optimistic, and there’s a background reason for everything we do. This sense is essential for our psychological health. Whether your purpose of life is for personal accumulative, altruistic or self-development, only when you possess deep authentic sense of purpose, will you own the most productive and meaningful life!

Steve is a senior lecturer in psychology at Leeds Beckett University, and author of several best-selling books on psychology and spirituality, including Waking From Sleep View Here and Back to Sanity View Here

He’s a researcher in Transpersonal Psychology and Positive Psychology.
