Summary

Summary

While collecting poems and prayers for two of her recent books, June Cotner noticed that many of the award-winning poets submitted beautiful poetry that didn't meet the themes of either of the books she was working on, yet seemed to fall into a natural grouping of their own. The selections in Heal Your Soul, Heal the World are all tied to the theme of global harmony and the interconnectedness between all things in the universe. As we approach the new millennium, people are realizing that differences they once thought were enormous have been minimized in the spirit of unity in diversity. That's the focus of Heal Your Soul, Heal the World, an illuminating book that reflects on the connections between humanity, spirituality, and nature. Through some 150 prayers and poems, Heal Your Soul, Heal the World offers comfort, healing, and inspiration to everyone who lives in this ever-changing world.In Heal Your Soul, Heal the World, a wealth of writers offer compelling reflections about the universe in powerful verse -- from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Gandhi, from Mother Teresa to the Buddha, and from Walt Whitman to lesser-known, visionary poets. Divided into easily referenced chapters to aid those looking for a prayer or poem to fit a particular occasion, Heal Your Soul, Heal the World covers a wide variety of themes, such as love, wonder, tolerance, and hope. We did not weave the web of life, we are merely a strand in it, said Chief Seattle. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
