Each chapter of this charming book tells the tale of a pilgrim and his problem. There is a man who is incurably jealous, a woman filled with envy, the grandmother who never receives thank-you notes from her grandchildren, the war veteran who cant forgive himself the lives he took, the famous man who learns humility. As their stories unfold, we come to realize that we are all in here, with our wounded egos, insecurities, bad tempers, impatience, and ambitiousness.
These simple and beautiful tales help us unravel the knots of everyday enxieties with profound ease, humor, wisdom, and elegance. Through them we understand that a holy man never cures us, simply shows us the good things we are but cannot see.
