We know guilt, if at all, by the message of badness that it seems to communicate to us. LeRoy Aden notes that our tendency is to silence the message, when in fact we need to listen to our guilt feelings carefully. A better understanding of the nature and operation of guilt and guilt feelings will help us evaluate the negative and the positive roles that they play in our search for fulfillment. In this book Aden examines real-life situations as well as literary works to illuminate the concrete details of this struggle with guilt and guilt feelings. He finds that sense of guilt can warn us when we lose our way and can put us back on the road to restored relationships and genuine fulfillment when we heed its call.

THE SILENT TEAR Steeped in the culture, wisdom and conflict of sixteenth century Asia, Mike Doan’s The Silent Tear tells the story of Le and his journey from boyhood tragedy and abandonment to adult fulfillment, joy and acceptance of responsibility. After witnessing his father’s death when their village is destroyed by bandits, Le’s devoted mother releases her only child to the care of monks at the Shaolin temple. Under the tutelage of kindly Master Wong, Le masters the physical discipline and demands of Shaolin kung fu, as well as the spirituality of compassion and generosity that eventually guide his reentry into the world in search of his mother. Though her attempts at visiting her son at the temple are thwarted each year, Le’s mother never forfeits hope that, one day, she will reunite with her beloved son. In the meantime, through employment as a cook, she develops a surrogate family consisting of a range of characters including the coveted courtesan, Su, the house master, Mr. Phu, and the lovely but uncontrollable master’s daughter, Ling. When Le eventually reunites with his mother and finds love with a wife who, herself, is a gifted swordswoman, his one goal is to use his training in Shaolin kung fu to protect his family and nearby villages from the roaming bandits that disrupted his own childhood. But nothing Le learned while studying at the Shaolin temple can prepare him for his final altercation. A stirring debut novel, propelled by adventure, romance, temptation, spirituality and family relationships, The Silent Tear will leave readers thirsting for more from this gifted new writer.
