The missing star is because I rarely give 5 stars and because something is referred to in the blessings for special occasions at the end which I can't find: 'The Blessing of the 7 directions referred to above'. I'd love to know what that is. I'm sure if I contacted Caitlin she'd tell me though. Her Web page within Amazon is rather friendly and inviting.
Both the Morning and the Evening devotions are highly structured and use powerful language full of beautiful images drawn from all over the cosmos. You can adapt it to fit your own beliefs, but really it is quite usable as is, with few exceptions. It is best to completely familiarise yourself with how to use the book (section at the beginning) and the design and intent of the devotions.
The beauty and comfort of this book, cannot be adequately expressed, only experienced at the deepest levels. It works both for inner development and for reaching out to others and preparing oneself for both day and nighttime. When my Mum passed away I used it twice daily for a couple of months and it was invaluable.
Recently I have returned to using it as it should be, twice daily, every day. The few minutes of silence and honesty, of deep meditation (Solar Question in the morning, Lunar Meditation at night), prayer, thanksgiving, and blessing, plus the protection drawn to oneself, are beyond price.
Caitlin Matthews has done a great service in producing this book. There are small errors of language and punctuation which a good proofread would sort out - and of course this should be reprinted.
I would replace the Gideon Bible with this in every hotel room in the world.
