After spending 13 years as a Roman Catholic monk, Thomas Moore earned a doctorate in religious studies and went on to write several books, including New York Times
best-seller Care of the Soul
and his latest book, A Religion of One's Own
After decades of religious study, Thomas has come to believe that each of us can create his or her own personal form of religion, embracing all faiths. For the past few years, he has shared his devotion with the world every day by sending out a carefully crafted contemplation through Twitter.
"I go to my computer, and I sit down and meditate for a while, and I think of something, some thought, that I think people really would like to hear—would like to have me transmit somehow that day," Thomas says. "I like little meditations, a little phrase. I tweet it and I send it out there. I love that."
Watch as Thomas shares his favorite quote with Oprah and reveals what he's found to be the greatest source of inspiration throughout his life.
