    There's a voice in the universe calling each of us to remember our purpose, our reason for being here now, in this world of impermanence. The voice whispers, shouts, and sings to us that this experience of being in form, in space and time, knowing life and death, has meaning. The voice is that of inspiration, which is within each and every one of us.

    Overall

    I wonder if Dr. Dyer shouldn't consider revising his books before sending them to his editor. The writing lacked clarity and beauty that only revision can reveal. It also was stuffed full of stomach turning cliches that distracted from the message of the book.

    Plus, I can't stomach all of the finger-wagging of this book. He is constantly looking down his nose at everyone else, accusing them of "living in ego," while simultaneously patting himself on the back for being so super spiritual. This book made me feel unhappy and completely at odds with God. The whole point of the title is that it should teach me to live in spirit not out of spirit. In this objective, it fails completely.

    One good moment of the book is when he is talking about excitement being a sign that you can be good at something. I find that inspiring and helpful. In the final analysis though, I find Dr. Dyer a far better lecturer than he is a writer because in his lectures he is able to focus on the principles and stay away from his attempts to be clever in his wording. It appears that whenever he attempts this it ends up being super corny.
