Just released on Amazon.com (www.amazon.com/dp/0692920196/), my new book entitled:
Questions That Matter
From the back Cover:
Would you be willing to share with me, why you want to live?
This question, asked of people so bereft of joy and connection that they have considered ending their lives, has taught Roger Breisch much about life and the human journey.
Having logged more than 3000 hours answering calls on suicide hotlines, Breisch has come to know the vital, often life-saving role that questions play in our daily discourse. “Answers have a way of ending discovery and learning,” he declares in Questions That Matter, his first collection of writings inspired, in part, by his revelatory experiences talking people off the ledge. “Captivating questions, however, open us to unimaginable possibilities…”
Breisch’s provocative essays explore profound truths hidden within the familiar questions we all share–questions about our lives, our work, our relationships, our gifts, and what, if anything, they mean. “We all struggle to know how to live in a complex and confusing world,” he reminds us. “We desperately want to know what the future might bring for us and humanity…”
Questions That Matter provides insights far more enlightening than pat answers about an unknowable future. Every page is watermarked with healing wisdom that guides us back to the things that matter most on the journey forward – the love and kindness that illuminate our individual lives, and collective soul.
1 thought on “Just Released: Questions That Matter”
I want to be there for my kids. I believe that they love to share their successes and their challenges with me. I help them thorough tough times and the good times are so much more enjoyable when you share them with the people you love most. My life has been very painful much of the past 15 years. Selfishly, I wouldn’t mind dying. No more pain for me. But I would hate to think of my kids missing time with their Dad. I don’t want to eliminate my pain only to transfer it to my kids.
