In his introduction to this book by Steve Taylor who teaches at Leeds Beckett University in England, famed spiritual teacher Eckhard Tolle calls it "a contemporary incarnation of that ancient tradition of poetic spiritual discourse. The ultimate subject matter of almost each one of these poems is the reader's state of consciousness."

We were pleased to find the following affirmations of spiritual practices we also regularly advocate: attention, being present, savoring this world, watching for moments when the pressure to do gives way to the ease of grace, remembering that we don't need the respect of others to respect ourselves, stopping striving, going with the flow of change, decluttering our souls, and being eternally grateful. These transformative spiritual practices lead to restoration of our primal energies and the renewal of our consciousness.
