I usually don't review or recommend non-Heathen Spiritual books but this collection of stories of the Shinto Saint Kurozumi Munetada is so, well uplifting(esp after the last couple of weeks;>).
Kurozumi was considered a living Kami during his lifetime and today has shrines dedicated to him about Japan. A devotee of Amaterazu Ohmikami, their Sun Goddess, he spent his life lecturing people how to live a Good, Respectful and Happy life by making deep connections with the Kami. Many(if not most) show a wonderfully dry sense of humor(like when he convinces a hyperchondriachal society matron with a persistent "headache" to keep watch for the symptoms of a new disease which "cured" her "headaches";>)....
Uplifting and funny. What more can you ask for to put your Mind into a Good space before bed;>!
Cheers,
Pat
