I just finished reading There's a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem, by Wayne Dyer, thanks to recommendations from Darrel and Mom. It is really an excellent book. It's basically about how you are what you think, and how that fact gives you more power over your own life than most people think you can have. I think there's a lot of advice in it that I've known about and maybe even followed to some extent, just from growing up with the parents I have. But it was good to have it all solidified like this for me, so I can really try to think a bit about how the concepts apply to my own life. I highly recommend reading it, whether for finding a solution for a specific problem or just for reading some good thoughts about life.

One small point that I wanted to pass on was how Dyer compares spirituality to health. You may be in good or bad health, but you can't escape having health at some level or another. Similarly, there are many different ways of relating to spirituality, but it's not an issue that you can meaningfully ignore. I found that interesting.
