This book is meant to be used as a source for meditation passages, which it's great for, but it's also a wonderful source for reading from different traditions: Hinduism, Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam/Sufism, Native American, Taoism.... It's a beautiful book to sample from or dive into when you want a breath of fresh, spiritual air.
