Immortal Diamond Book Review

Reflecting on Richard Rohr’s “Immortal Diamond,” I found myself deeply moved by his central message: our true self is like a diamond, precious and unbreakable, hidden beneath the layers of ego and societal expectations. Rohr, with his characteristic wisdom and compassion, invites us to embark on a journey to uncover this true self.

The diamond metaphor is powerful. It reminds us that at our core, we have an essence that is pure and eternal, even if it’s currently buried under our false identities. In a world where we’re often pressured to be something we’re not, Rohr’s message is a refreshing call to authenticity and self-discovery.

Rohr draws on a rich tapestry of Christian tradition, blending scripture, the insights of mystics, and his own experiences to make his points. Yet, his writing is approachable and practical, making complex spiritual concepts accessible to everyone, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey.

One of the most striking aspects of the book is its inclusivity. Rohr acknowledges that the quest to discover our true self is a universal human experience, transcending religious boundaries. This openness makes the book relatable to readers from various backgrounds, encouraging a deeper understanding of ourselves and our place in the world.

For those familiar with the Christian tradition, particularly the Anglican and Franciscan perspectives, Rohr’s reflections resonate deeply. He emphasizes the sacramental nature of life and the presence of God in all things, encouraging us to see the divine in the everyday.

In summary, “Immortal Diamond” is a deeply enriching read that invites us to look beyond the surface and discover the true self within. Rohr’s insights are both challenging and comforting, guiding us towards a more authentic and fulfilled life. Whether you’re well-versed in spiritual literature or new to these ideas, “Immortal Diamond” offers valuable wisdom for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of themselves and their spiritual journey.

The book suggestion for June is “The Wounded Healer” by Henri Nouwen.
