"The old way of being human accepts the cynicism of the world with a resigned, bystander-victim mentality about life," says Taylor. "The global economy, global conflicts and the seismic shifts of social media and technology result in uncertainty, anxiety and apprehension about the unknown.""But the new way of being human reveals spiritual truths about the Holy in your life, egging you on to discover how your stories connect to the stories of those you might least expect." Part spiritual guidebook and part remarkable life story, The book is divided into seven chapters of spiritual pathways with three items of practice at each section's end to guide the reader's journey. In addition to hearing Taylor's story and anecdotes from fellow seekers, the reader will learn to dig into his or her own life story, break through personal difficulties, and "polish the world with kindness."
