In the realm of visualizations, there are both externally based visuals where one uses an actual external object as a focal point, as well as inner creative visualizations where one creates an image within the mind's eye. In addition, there are also awareness practices with which one learns to become aware of what already exists within the inner screen of the mind's eye. Each of these methods will be explored in detail throughout this book, along with explanatory ideas and anecdotal events meant to contextualize the practices within the broader framework of Torah thought and spiritual practice.
This book started out amazing and I was really excited, but then it turned into a vocabulary lesson and totally lost me. It was definitely designed for a specific reader. I do use some of the meditation techniques, but throughout the book they were repetitive. I would have really enjoyed it if this book was half the length.
I enjoyed this book on Bible meditation. Theologically, I disagreed on a couple of doctrinal points. I believe the Bible teaches death as a sleep until the resurrection at the last day. Also I believe that God does have a distinct form and personal image. Genesis 1:26-28. I learned much about the beliefs of the Kabbalist Jews from this book.
