by Robert J. Wicks

Bob Wicks again delivers his gentle healing philosophy through poignant, humorous stories that will warm and educate the heart. With a refreshing sense of simplicity, Wicks invites readers to seek perspective and develop a strong inner life. His work helps move beyond the vague desire to live more peacefully to actually living one's dream: a life that is noble and meaningful, with a sense of joy, hope, and commitment.

Wicks shows how to find the curative value of listening to ourselves and to others, how to discover in solitude a "good loneliness," and how to appreciate the gift of now. In this gentle, yet realistic approach, both joy and pain must be accepted in order to thrive, as they are forever intertwined, just as the development of one's inner life is intertwined with reaching out to others.

This is Wicks' life work; while not autobiographical, the book breathes with the themes he's lived through his distinguished career, most notably the hopeful message of finding spiritual freedom and greater meaning in daily life. The book is perfect for anyone under stress or suffering loss, for spiritual seekers, for ministry professionals, counselors, and for all those in the helping professions.

Bad Sunny
nice condition , delivered promptly, product is as described, book doesn't offer much insight -- pure common sense. Am giving this away or selling it on Amazon
Got this book in the amount of time that was given. This was a used book in great shape and the author had even signed it for the original reader so I thought that was really cool that I ended up with a signed copy. I will definitely use this company again for other books.
Bob Wicks' books are excellent. This one is the first of his books that I read, and it continues to be my favorite.

Although it was a used book, it is in excellant condition including the jacket. I was especially thrilled hat the author had autographed it.
This is by far one of the most inspiring books I've ever read. It helped to refocus and redirect my energies inwardly. Many times we become so consumed with looking for complex messages, mysteries or solutions, it becomes very easy to miss the simplicity and practicality of wisdom and spirituality! This book enabled me to remember where my authentic power is rooted. It is in my spirituality! It also reminds me that the most passionate parts of life are gentle and simple!!
This book is well written and uses real life experiences as examples . It shows how to live your life, your way!
