This pamphlet rambles through a series of insights into the inward spiritual journey and how it is connected to our outward journey through life. It is full of quotes and anecdotes, some relevant and some not. The points require sustained concentration to pick out; the import is that the inward journey to compassion, awareness, and the true Self is lifelong, takes persistent renewal of intent and effort, and some hard choices and willingness to change as well. It is a journey to a tender heart,enjoyment of communion with God, and a real sense of living in unity, in the Providence of God. While the writing meanders around so much that it requires a determined reader to extract the value, what he has to say is wonderful, and the tone is sweet. It can be a helpful guide for both those setting out and those renewing themselves along the Journey.
