From the Author It's said that as human beings, we spend about a third of our lives asleep. Â But, too many of us spend the rest of our lives in a type of waking sleep, held captive by the bonds ofÂ distraction. The shiny trinkets of entertainment and materialism, the prisons of anxiety and brokenness: these hypnotize our souls into a resigned stupor, where we assume we're living day-to-day, but are never truly alive. Â This book is a conversation. And an invitation. It speaks to you and invites you to devote a few moments each day to learning, or remembering, how to embrace what matters most. In easy-to-understand, practical terms, it speaks to both the earnest spiritual pilgrim who needs to return to base camp, and to the person who has never given much thought to spiritual matters, but would like to explore that journey. Wherever you find yourself, I'm grateful that you would consider sharing your journey with me. And I look forward to our conversations along the road.
