About the Book

Without a question to hook onto an answer, even profound information can just breeze on by. From his previous six books, all of which explore diff erent aspects for how to deepen in the spirit, the author has selected about 90 of the most provocative questions. Th ese are grouped into three parts: 1) the good beginning 2) the good middle and 3) the good end.. Lots of space on the page between questions is meant to encourage refl ection and perhaps a written note, because the author believes that it is not the quantity of information that satisfi es one’s soul, but the quality and depth one achieves by going deeper following those questions that truly engage the heart. Th e author calls question like this “pathfi nder questions.” Good questions lead to good answers, better questions to better answers, and really good questions lead to superlatively good answers. He hopes that every reader will engage at least one superlatively good question that will, in eff ect, become a path to follow to ever greater spiritual abundance.

About the Author

With this book Robert Colacurcio has brought the series of his previous nine books full circle. The concept of the “virtual self” from his first book, The Virtual Self: Beyond the Gap in Buddhist Philosophy is now used to give the reader a way to ponder the question, “What is it that takes rebirth?” This question takes its place in a long line of questions that have guided the author’s approach to spirituality from an early age. He trained as a Jesuit for eleven years, earned a doctorate in philosophy from Fordham University and explored every aspect of The Human Potential Movement available in NYC in the ‘70’s. After practicing Zen and the methods of G.I. Gurdjieff in a Sufi commune, he discovered the spiritual technology of the Buddha. For the past thirty years, the Buddha’s methodology has provided his path to deeper study and contemplation of life’s most important questions. He currently lives with his wife, Carol Jo, on a mountain top in Virginia. Together they share a partnership in the spirit which they believe was begun many lifetimes ago.
