Publisher's Synopsis
Following its popular books on the Christian, Buddhist, and Hindu spiritual traditions, The Inner Journey: Views from the Jewish Tradition presents a thoughtful composite picture of this ancient belief system. Here are some of the best writings on the subject, featuring works from a wide range of genres that delve into the spiritual byways of Judaism. Isaac Bashevis Singer, Martin Buber, Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, and other important thinkers in the field take on such topics as Kabbalah, the search for self, and divine and worldly works.

Featuring beautifully reproduced color artwork, this book is a chorus of passionate voices that explore both the Torah and the Zohar of enduring Jewish mystic thought.

Excerpt
"From a child he should learn
  1. always to be happy;
  2. never to sit idle;
  3. to cry for everything one wants.

From a thief he should learn

  1. to work at night;
  2. if one cannot gain what one wants in one night to try again the next night;
  3. to love one's co-workers just as thieves love each other;
  4. to be willing to risk one's life even for a little
    thing;
  5. not to attach too much value to things, even though one has risked one's life for them, just as a thief will re-sell a stolen article at a fraction of its real value;
  6. to withstand all kinds of beatings and tortures but to remain what you are;
  7. to believe your work is worth while, and not to be willing to change it."
