      Early in the book, the author poses a startling question If everything is God, why be Jewish A good question, once you ve accepted the premise of nonduality, which is What we call God is simply a name for Existence If you strip away the layers, at the core of everything you will find Him, It, You, God Name it what you will, it is simply Being It is Oneness It cannot be defined, or delineated, and it definitely cannot be attributed desires, expectations, and moods.The God we ve come to know as ki [...]

      One of the most amazing books about nondual neo Hasidic judiasm I ve ever read If you know nothing about this ancient strain of Jewish thought, this book will blow your mind if you re familiar with these ideas, it is a wonderfully written summation of the non dualist philosophy and how it can inform, revolutionize, and imbue traditional Jewish practice I just re read this book in one sitting on the first day of 2016 as a reminder of how deep are the truths contained within It s always good to co [...]

      There s a lot of good stuff in here, but one line seems to sum up the author s approach, If we only perform rituals that give us a certain feeling, then we are mistaking a certain feeling for God Isn t that what Jay Michaelson does It seems to me that he models his observance level, not on Hasidic masters like the Baal Shem Tov or the Lubavitcher Rebbe, but on writers like Martin Buber and Abraham Joshua Heschel beautiful writers and profound intellects who made compromises with the modern world [...]

      I feel the passion and the brilliance but I do not feel the warmth and the affection My own personal relationship with the Divine is based upon than mere intellectual appreciation, so although I find the writing and the train of thought to be compelling, I also find it to be chilly Might try again to finish it, but.
