Synopsis: The long-awaited follow-up to the classic "Notes to Myself," this book provides a primer of inner wisdom for those whose attention has turned to spirituality. Like a modern Book of Proverbs, "Spiritual Notes to Myself" offers essential material for the journey to a more satisfying inner life.

From Publishers Weekly: Methodist minister Prather dedicated his 1970 book, Notes to Myself, to Carl Rogers, the father of the human potential movement. The book went on to sell five million copies. Now, 27 years and several books later, Prather renounces such "preoccupation with ego enhancement." He preaches instead a life of selfless service to others and a sense of "oneness" with all other people. While claiming that his way requires no religious affiliation or practice, he refers often to God and Jesus. Like Notes to Myself, this is a collection of brief musings, some lovely, others humorous. Despite the overall wisdom of Prather's message, a few of the musings reveal what seems to be an underlying anger and impatience toward people struggling with such problems as codependency, addiction and divorce. Perhaps if Prather had fleshed out his thoughts in longer sections of prose, his points would have been made in a more complete and understandable way. It is not helpful to simply proclaim that "love does not participate in madness," without explaining how one might identify madness, or to instruct readers to "Forget this doormat stuff," ridiculing the terms "enabler" and "codependent," or to announce that healing one's inner child and nurturing one's own child can't be done at once. These are complex issues deserving of more compassion and respect than Prather provides, particularly as he preaches universal love. 40,000 first printing.
