Reflections of Being
By Peter Ralston. 5.5"x 8.5", 75 pages, paperback. Many of the questions for which the martial arts work of Cheng Hsin is a vehicle of discovery are described here in simple, almost conversational language. The easy-to-read text disguises the deep philosophical answers. Attempting to grasp what authentic knowledge is, Ralston's queries become a quest for how humans can develop a deeper sense of themselves as active participants in the world.
