    Just as a mother with her own life Protects her child, her only child, from harm, So within yourself let grow A boundless love for all creatures. Such an inspiring collection. It baffles me that every single religion on the planet can offer the same message, strive for the same sense of peace, kindness and calmness, and yet somehow find hatred for one another. Anyone who claims to be religious or spiritual but resents another individual's practice isn't spiritual at all. And they need to read this b Just as a mother with her own life Protects her child, her only child, from harm, So within yourself let grow A boundless love for all creatures.

    Meh. It’s an anthology of spiritual poems/verse, and not really the stuff I’m into (weirdly, I bought it 10+ years ago but never read it, so...?). Obviously, a lot of other people liked it, so my review is purely subjective.

    This is a book I will go to again & again. It's perfect for moments when you don't have a whole lot of time, but could use some inspiration & words of wisdom to ponder. This is a very refreshing read that left me feeling like there's so much more to life than what meets the eye. This is a book I will go to again & again.
