The appearance of some books seems particularly timely, though it could be argued that there has likely never been a bad time for this particular book. Kingma’s goal is to remind the reader that our difficulties happen for a reason and can and should be recognized as an opportunity for growth both personally and spiritually.
This book is meant to guide us through those times of multiple crises. Through the use of anecdotes and spiritual wisdom that transcends any specific faith, Kingma encourages the reader to acknowledge the emotions involved, both positive and negative, then to take a look at our own behaviors in order to form new behavioral patterns when necessary and to let go of old behaviors that either create crises or deepen those crises.
Each chapter ends with a set of questions and contemplations to enable the reader to reflect on the lessons/discussions of the chapter. Written in a straightforward, easy to read style, the book nonetheless gives the reader plenty to consider in each chapter.
