For the reader seeking spiritual guidance, this introduction to a regular programme of daily meditation aims to create a oneness with God and an understanding of an individual's place in the world. Goldsmith is not concerned with theory or theology, but with the need for prayer. His starting point is the universal inner conviction of humanity - that man is not alone in the universe, that there must be some higher force.
