A quote from near the end of the book sums up so much that is significant to me and features often in this Blog:
"Grace is the common thread linking dying, contemplative practice and spiritual growth. The essential unity of dying, contemplative practice and spiritual growth is becoming increasingly apparent."
Certainly my own contemplative practices over the years have been the core of my spiritual growth - and more and more I see that dying is not just something that occurs at the end of physical life but a process and a practice of continual letting go and letting be.

Today I noticed this four minute video posted on New Year's Eve with this introduction:
Take Four Minutes To Reflect On Your Place In The Cosmos
"So it's New Year's Eve again and that means resolutions — resolutions to stop this and resolutions to start that. Maybe just looking at where we are from a different perspective is all we need…It may not help you with your New Year's resolutions, but it will fill you with a sense of pure wonder."
