I sat down with coffee this morning and pulled this little book off the "just in from the mail" pile and didn't stop until I'd finished reading it. What a quiet little call to action, in a way, for us to quit groveling in sorrow and, rather, get up and embrace the spirit in the world. Words I needed to hear, especially this line:

"It takes more depth of soul to believe life can be better than to give ourselves to despair and become a martyr to our own world-weariness."

Thank you, Leslie.

I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

"Profound" is the first word that comes to mind in relation to this book. It packs a big punch in a little package. This beautifully written gem contains a vast abundance of truth and wisdom and insight and clarity. Its powerful ruminations are food for the mind and solace for the soul. I've read every meditation twice and feel sure that I'll continue to read them again and again.

A very slim book of poetry. I could see someone taking this on an extended backpacking trip or solo nature retreat and enjoying it, but I just did not resonate with it and will pass the book on to a friend.

“The moments of silence are gone. We run from them into the rush of unimportant things, so filled is the quiet with the painful whispers of all that goes unspoken. Busy-ness is our drug of choice, numbing our minds just enough to keep us from dwelling on all that we fear we can’t change. A compilation of coping mechanisms, we have become our fatigue. Unwilling or unable to cut ourselves free of this modern machine we have built, we’re dragged in its wake all too quickly toward our end. The virtue of a society’s culture is reflected in the physical, mental, and emotional health of its people. The time has come to part ways with all that is toxic, and preserve our quality of life.” 18 likes
“Who are we without our addictions; without our media-induced hungers? So often the voices we hear echoing in our mind are not our own but that of our influencers. Isolation, while arguably going against human nature, is essential for mental and emotional health. Solitude is a detoxification of all that distorts our personality and misguides our path in life. It allows us to filter out the foreign opinions and hear our own voice—reach our authentic character—and practice fidelity to self.” 18 likes
