Waking Up: A Guide To Spirituality Without Religion - Sam Harris - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of Waking Up:

Why religious people are happy and how you can be happy too.

My favorite Sam Harris quote from the book:

"Our minds are all we have. They are all we have ever had. And they are all we can offer others."

Questions to ponder while reading:

Are you spiritual or superstitious?

Can religion and philosophy be separate?

My review of Waking Up:

A good comparison of the commonalities in religious practices.

Reinforces that spirituality is a disciple, not a feeling.

I don't agree that religion can be separate from spiritual practice. We need the community.
