The spiritual life is not a life then and there, but a life here and now. It is a life in which the spirit of God is revealed in the ordinary enccounters of every day. With a smile and a tear, Nouwen looks at the day-to-day events of our lives and discovers there places where God chooses to dwell and call us.

"Not sure what to say"
I did not find it as inspiring as some of his other works. I picked up maybe two things as opposed to dozens in things like Return of the Prodigal Son.
"always what I need"
For over 23 years Henri Nouwen has been my spiritual director via his wise words in multiple publications. I continue to give college graduates his Bread for the Journey as gift. Usually in the inscription on the inside cover I will recommend this book (Here and Now) as a recommendation for further depth in a relationship with God. There is a syllable wasted in Nouwens writing. Love underscores every insight. Love is what I always need, both to receive and then to give. Nouwen opens my love sensitivity and motivates my sharing.
"A Key to Happiness"
Easy to follow guide to the simplicity of life through God's love. Should be a part of everyone's library.
