About the back cover
"EIN ODE MILVADO!"--This quote from the Torah can be translated as "THERE IS NOTHING BUT GOD!" The spiritual experience of realizing the Divine Presence within every moment are reflected in the holy words of this Kabbalistic meditation. Kabbalistic meditations and contemporary painting are combined in the works of artist Avraham Loewenthal, who lives in Tzfat, Israel. Avraham met with members of the MAPS group during their Israel trip for a discussion of Kabbalistic principles of expanded consciousness through unconditional love. To see more Kabbalistic paintings on-line, visit the Tfat Gallery of Mystical Art at:
