Let Your Life Speak by Parker J. Palmer is one of my top book recommendations for life purpose.
I consider it a down-to-earth masterclass in allowing life to live you (instead of you living life).
It's refreshing to read a story from someone who has firsthand experience with all the ups and downs of the spiritual journey, has spent the necessary time reflecting on it, and is also able to articulate it in a simple way.
It turns out that Parker and I had similar crisis/awakening experiences:
- We both began to "wake up" in our early thirties,
- Life seemed to be going well on the outside but not on the inside, and
- We would both stare for hours at the ceiling each night
