Reading Notes To Myself is one of those rare experiences that comes only once in a great while. In the introduction to his follow-up five-million copy bestseller, Hugh Prather laments his former preoccupation with "the unconnected or unserving self." Thanks to his continuing spiritual journey, Prather counsels that it is important in all intimate relationships to stay away, as much as possible, from demands and ultimatums. He suggests using the following mantra "I am wholly at peace with the way you are." Throughout the book, Prather salutes the spiritual practices of silence, being present, attention, peace and forgiveness.
