Whose life are you living? – Tony Humphreys
Published on 3rd June 2020
This book describes a study of the culture and influences which affect our individual sense of self and worth. With a focus on family, education, religious and work organisations the author provides an analysis of how the ethos within each system contributes to our wholly developing the various aspects of self -physical, social, emotional, creative, intellectual and spiritual.
According to the author an imbalance in “contemporary society which worships at the altar of success and lauds “ ‘having’ rather than ‘being’ ” has lead us to lose “conscious sight of our true nature”. Drawing on his extensive career as a psychologist he outlines a path (via a greater examination of self) back to a re-discovery or re-birth of our authentic selves. This journey is a necessary one he believes in order to reach our greatest potential as individuals and as a society.
