Sometimes I find a rare treasure of a book on the library shelf. Parker J. Palmer asked himself a question of the inner search: “Is the life I am living the same as the life that wants to live in me?” The result was his book, Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation. This book is a moving, written meditation as to how his own life answered his calling. He says that vocation does not come from willfulness, but from truly listening to and accepting the “true self” with all of its limitations and all of its potentials.
Kindling the Native Spirit: Sacred Practices for EverydayLife by Denise Linn and published by Hay House is chock full of exercises to ignite an Earth-based spiritual lifestyle. When common things no longer satisfy, and you feel a yearning in your soul for something more, a truer connection to life and all that implies, this book might be the answer for you.
