My father gave me this book, and I read it slowly--a "meditation" a night.... We both felt transformed by it.

It's surprising. And, I think it might be important to remember that--that some teachings sound easy enough but actually are fairly bold.

One of the lessons: "Learn to heal yourself." "Become your own soul's doctor." "Quit chasing after tonics and teachers."

Another: "Forgive over and over and over." "Generally, we're all doing the best we can...."
