As a young man at West Point, Mike Heller found himself in a hostile environment, struggling to fit in where he was learning that he did not belong, searching for something to hold onto that was true and that nurtured his spirit. Now, from the wisdom and experience of greater years, he reflects on his painful and sometimes lonely passage and on how way opened for him to discover himself and his place in the world. In the best Friends’ tradition of sharing our spiritual journeys, Mike Heller offers his own story, told with insight and compassion for the variety of people who crossed his path. Here is a perpetual theme in the journals of Friends’ search for harmony between one’s inward life and one’s place in the outer world.
