Our inner work is to tune our hearts and our senses to perceive the spiritual world says Michael Laitman in the poem Spiritual Wave. This is a lovingly crafted anthology comprised of Kabbalistic tales and allegories passed through Dr Michael Laitman, and his mentors Rav Baruch Ashlag (Rabash), and Rabash's father Rav Yehuda Ashlag. The desire of the Kabbalah student is to reach higher levels of spiritual attainment, yet it is difficult to imagine the sensations of the spiritual world. The verse in this reflective and insightful compilation gives the reader a glimpse into the essence of this elevated state of being. The poems herein are excerpts from letters and lessons given by these three, spiritual leaders. They offer inspiring and often amusing depictions of human nature that resonate with reader regardless of his/her level of study. Indeed, this book is a tool for any student seeking to find higher levels of spiritual attainment.

In this landmark work, internationally beloved teacher of meditation and “one of the great spiritual teachers of our time” (Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple) Jack Kornfield reveals that you can be instantly happy with the keys to inner freedom. Through his signature warmhearted, poignant, often funny stories, with their a-ha moments and O. Henry-like outcomes, Jack Kornfield shows how we can free ourselves, wherever we are and whatever our circumstances. Renowned for his mindfulness practices and meditations, Jack provides keys for opening gateways to immediate shifts in perspective and clarity of vision, allowing us to “grapple with difficult emotions” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) and know how to change course, take action, or—when we shouldn’t act—just relax and trust. Each chapter presents a path to a different kind of freedom—freedom from fear, freedom to start over, to love, to be yourself, and to be happy—and guides you into an active process that engages your mind and heart, awakens your spirit, and brings real joy, over and over again. Drawing from his own life as a son, brother, father, and partner, and on his forty years of face-to-face teaching of thousands of people across the country, Jack presents “a consommé of goodness, heart, laughter, tears, and breath, nourishing and delicious” (Anne Lamott, author of Bird by Bird). His keys to life will help us find hope, clarity, relief from past disappointments and guilt, and the courage to go forward.
