Description - Sins Of The Spirit, Blessings Of The Flesh, Revised Edition by Matthew Fox

Sins of the Spirit, Blessings of the Flesh advances new insights on how to perceive good and evil by reminding the reader that sacredness is "wrapped up in the fleshy stuff of the universe," and pointing the way to a deeper, more compassionate way to live.

With Columbine and its many copy cats, 9/11, the Iraq War and all it has unleashed including ISIS, with global warming, Citizens United, priestly and football coach pedophilia, with wars and the Holocaust it is evident that humans, for all of our power, can easily misuse it. What is Evil about? Can we tame it or steer its energies differently? In this book the author calls on the wisdom of East and West to transform evil. He examines the chakras of the East which, if off balance speak the "Seven Capital Sins" of the West. If a chakra is a naming of spiritual and physical and psychological power centers (otherwise known as love), if they are "off center" might that correspond to the "capital sins"? In Sins of the Spirit, Blessings of the Flesh, Matthew Fox asks these questions and provides clues for transforming evil.
