If you feel that you are hurtling through life, pouring energy, money and time into things that may not matter in the end - and you want to STOP - then this book is for you. It will help you find the space to discover WHAT REALLY MATTERS to you - and how to integrate it more fully into your daily routine, so you can LIVE LIFE to the fullest extent possible. This might involve challenging the beliefs that hold you back, or letting go of shattered dreams. Draper encourages you to embark on a "stop doing" list, to go more slowly, become aware of what you can hear and see, smell, and touch - and to pay attention to those spiritual essentials that will nourish your soul, bring a smile to your face, and joy to your heart.

Review quote

"Some English mystics have spoken of `contemplation' as `a long, loving look at the real'. This would be an apt description of `What Matters Most?' Where, and how, in the ordinary events of everyday life, might we find the pearl of great price - the truth and reality that resonate deeply in the ground of our being? Brian Draper, with disarming honesty and a warm, invitational style, opens pathways that lead to what truly lies closest to our heart, and to the heart of God, however we understand that sacred mystery. His insightful reflections are punctuated by very practical spiritual exercises that can be readily integrated into the daily lives of those of any faith tradition, or of none. This is a treasury of wisdom in the language and the spirit of `the real'. Very well worth a long, loving look." -- Margaret Silf, author of Landscapes of Prayer
