Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Drawing on New Age learning and personal experience in both community living and channeling for spirit beings, Spangler (Everyday Miracles, Bantam, 1996) meditates on the idea of the spiritual call and its place in the quest for identity. His essays are based on talks given at a retreat. The first, introductory essay is the most personal and universally appropriate. He asserts that all of us share a common call to be connected to the larger spiritual life of the universe. Life consists of a multiplicity of calls that draw us out and help us to define ourselves. The primal call is the call to love. Spangler addresses the longing for a call as well as forms of resistance to being called. Eventually, he says, we create our own callings by our self-giving actions, though he does not specify how. His work is an intimate "keepsake" book, while Dick Bolles's essay "How To Find Your Mission in Life," (Ten Speed Pr., 1996) reprinted from his What Color Is Your Parachute, answers the same questions more concretely and satisfyingly.-John R.
