89 - The Path of Blessing
At the opening of The Path of Blessing, Rabbi Marcia Prager insists that "we are not called merely to notice casually now and then that something is special and nice but to sustain and deepen a profound and sustained gratitude. Indeed, the more we acknowledge our gratefulness, the more we temper our tendency to be users, despoilers, arrogant occupiers". Prager's book is nothing short of a manual for cultivating an awareness of deep gratitude. Walking readers through the first six words of a standard Jewish blessing, Prager invites readers into a deep meditation on the nature of God, humanity, and our connections to each other and the world around us. The Path of Blessing is a book not only for mystics but also for those of us who wish for the connection we believe the mystics have.
