I discovered this little treasure while resershing for a book I'm presently wirting. I judge a good book by these three things: One, it confirms that which I have come to know through life experience. Two, it leads me further on the path and three it leaves me desiring more. This little book with its 86 power packed pages satisfys all three. Even if one does not think his or herself to be practicing to become a mystic, no matter what religion, this is a practical guide to discovering Spirit at new and higher levels. I highly recommend this little gem to all who are seeking to understand life in a much broader, richer and more meaningful way.
