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