In these tumultuous times, readers will appreciate author Xolani Kacela's Get a Hold of Yourself, an enriching book for persons seeking spiritual renewal, alignment and integration with their values, and practices that enrich daily living. Get a Hold of Yourself means using the spiritual gifts you possess and others unknown to you for creative living and engaging others who hold different beliefs, values, and spiritual convictions. The book examines faith through the lenses of many religious and secular traditions. Kacela's writing is intelligent and even-paced, but not preachy.
The book begins by defining faith and its implications for future-oriented life choices. Case studies explore the ways people grow from spiritual infancy to develop exemplary faith, an unshakable hope, coping strategy, and the unrelenting conviction that the human spirit can transcend suffering and despair. The author weaves contemporary spiritual practices with mysticism and guides the reader's perception and experience of transcendence in everyday life. Readers will enjoy this excellent book, be they religious or spiritual, but not religious.
