Take the story about the couple whose 21-year-old daughter develops abrain tumor. While of course they seek medical care, they decide that whatthey really need to do is focus on her happiness, "letting go" of theirfears for her physical future, since it is beyond their control. The girlultimately recovered. Stories like this one are worth pages of New Agemeandering--which, unlike many writers who followed in his footsteps, Prather generally keeps to a minimum. Though its reminders to "letgo of the ego mind" may strike some readers as relentlessly upbeat, thisis a soothing tome which has much to offer anyone wearied by life'sburdens.
