Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this religious self-help manual, David Aaron, who is the head of Jerusalem's Isrealight Institute as well as a rabbi and pianist, taps the great mystical power of the Kabbalah to offer insights into living everyday life with love and power. In a number of meditations on the Kabbalah and the spiritual life, Aaron teaches that "to embark on the spiritual path is to seek to explore the very depths of heart and soul to learn to receive their unified light." Aaron believes that the spiritual path is not a path apart from one's everyday life. The key to life, according to Aaron, is love, and he believes that love, once it is received, can motivate the world to acts of kindness and justice. Using illustrations from Torah and Kabbalah as well as anecdotes from his own life, Aaron recounts the path of Kabbalah to personal transformation. At the end of each chapter, he offers questions to guide reflection on the matters discussed in the chapter. While Aaron's meditations are grounded solidly in the Jewish Kabbalistic tradition, they are generic enough (e.g., "The essence of life is love") to appeal to a broad audience. (Sept.)

    Fabulous Book!

    This book is very easy to read with wonderful concepts to Universal living. Showing individuals how and why they need to take responsibility for developing their spirit and their actions. He gives an explanation of our linked spirit to a higher One. It gives the wisdom on how to develope a healthy spirit related to G-d, which is the key for our life here, if we will make the correct choices. I feel it is a book everyone could read, no matter what religion, and be in agreeance with. David Aaron uses great examples for the reader to relate to and understand the points he is trying to make. This book will make any reader a better person should they decide to apply the concepts of this book to their life. Highly recommended for everyone to read. David Aaron is taking a subject that is supposed to be complex and making it simple enough for you and I. I am buying about 5 of these and probably more in the future as gifts for family and friends.

    Wonderful!

    This book has been a great comfort to me after the tragic attacks of September 11, 2001. I have regained a sense of being a part of a greater whole -- family, nation, world and even Hashem, 'the Name,' which term refers to our Creator. David Aaron has helped me to understand that we have freedom of choice within Hashem's will, and that even evil actions ultimately serve to fulfill the Plan of Hashem, as is written in the story of Joseph sold into slavery by his brothers, in the Bible. It is a joyous thing to learn that my purpose is to play my part in that Plan, making conscious choices that are aligned with the will of Hashem, through loving relationship with others, that we may be mended of our brokenness, that we may be filled with Endless Light.
