Dag Hammarskjold left behind the manuscript of this book to be published after his death. It is a remarkable record of the spiritual life of a man whose public image was universally known and admired a record that reveals the extent of his commitment to the Way of the Cross. Hammarskjold himself described the manuscript as a "sort of white book concerning my negotiations with myself and with God." The first entry is a poem written about 1925; the notes made during the 1940's and 1950's reflect a period of constant spiritual growth, self-questioning, and resolution; and the book ends with a poem he wrote only a few weeks before his death. In Markings Hammarskjold felt that he gave the only true profile of himself. Lacking as it does any reference to the external world, the book constitutes only haft a portrait, as W. H. Auden points out in his Foreword. But as we read it, the outer image of the Secretary-General persists and heightens the sense of loneliness Hammarskjold conveys, the severity with which he marked his own spiritual conduct and measured the integrity of his soul, his conception of life as a summons, and his premonition of death.… (mais)

Dag Hjalmar Agne Carl Hammarskjöld was a Swedish diplomat, author and the second Secretary-General of the United Nations, from 1953 until he died in a plane crash in 1961. He is the only person to have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize posthumously and the only U.N. Secretary-General to die in office.

This book was his journal discovered after his death, with a note saying it was "a sort of White Book concerning my negotiations with myself - and with God."

The journal shares another man's thoughts, which, of course, sparks more thoughts. Much can be seen of his spiritual journey and/or struggle.

QUOTES:

"Concerning men and their way to peace and concord. It is more important to understand the motives for your own behaviour than the motives of another."

"If while pleading another's cause you are at the same time seeking something for yourself, you cannot hope to succeed."

"Never measure the height of a mountain, until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was."

"Is your disgust at your emptiness to be the only life with which you fill it?"

"Prayer, crystallized in words, assign a permanent wave length on which the dialogue has to be continued, even when our mind is occupied with other matters."

"Why is it that when I know that someone had a tragic or untimely death, my eyes always encounter what they wrote about death?"

"The longest journey
Is the journey inwards.
Of him who has chosen his destiny,
Who has started upon his quest
For the source of his being
(Is there a source?)."

"Is my contact with others anything more than a contact with reflections? Who or what can give me the power to transform the mirror into a doorway?" ( )

Finally finished it! Markings is good, but not for the faint of heart. Every sentence requires deep concentration, and I'm sure there was a lot I missed.

No doubt Hammarskjold was a genius and a man of deep faith. His honesty to look straight at his dark side was inspiring. So many morsels of wisdom. The style of mixing prose and poetry was great -
motivates me to try the same thing. However, I doubt the book would be considered a classic if written by a lesser-known person. ( )

A beautiful book of writings and poems that allows a glimpse into Dag's life, and struggles with spirituality. ( )

I knew absolutely nothing about this when I somewhat randomly plucked from a set of books that were being given away. Now that I have read it, I'm still not sure. It is a collection of very short peices, some just a sentence, some maybe a paragraph. I was thinking of them as aphorisms but isn't the best description. Reflections? Mainly quite religious in nature, many oddly obessesed with death. Now that I've finished it, I still don't quite know what to make of it.

I bought this book in 1965, during college, took it with me into prison and have read it so many times, underlining different sections. Hammarskjold had great insight into the spiritual life. ( )

It is not sufficient to place yourself daily under God. What really matters is to be only under God: the slightest division of allegiance opens the door to daydreaming, petty conversation, petty boasting, petty malice--all the petty satellites of hte death-instinct.

"But how, then, am I to love God?" "You must love Him as if He were a non-God, a non-Spirit, a non-Person, a non-Substance: love Him simply as the One, the pure and absolute Unity in which is no trace of Duality. And into this One, we must let ourselves fall continually from being into non-being. God helps us to do this."
