Spirituality knows no boundaries. Even so, it has been segregated from psychology for far too long. Larry’s blog reunites them. His wisdom stories are both illuminating and entertaining. Wisdom differs from factual knowledge. It is kind of sacred - the knowledge of how to be and behave - and its value increases as social evolution proceeds. Timely stuff!
