Jumbled and cluttered. Overwhelmed and unfocused. That is the coveted outcome of a society with state-of-the-art promises and dreams. Armed with a technology machine relentless in invading our every quiet moment, and a mighty media that has succeeded in shaping our thoughts and aspirations, our culture has drained us of real clarity and focus. We are led to set grandiose goals that massage the ego and ignore the protest of others, to shape our ideas around ethereal promises of self-actualization and advancement, and to lose ourselves in the hype of commercially spun trinkets of wisdom. The end result, we are a little lost.
While advising and counseling people across the spectrum, Pacific Northwest Jewish educator Rabbi Yitzchak Goldman often found himself centered on the same root causes of concern: People are not focused, are filled with ideas randomly plucked from their periphery, and are too quick to change their environment rather than change themselves.
The need to address this fundamental problem is what set The Soul Diet concept in motion, a no-holds-barred approach to restricting the invasion of pseudo-wisdom that is shaping core values and causing a general state of confusion in the minds of many. The Soul Diet is not an easy journey. But for those readers weary of cosmetic and clich d solutions to deeply ingrained thoughts and behaviors, this book will lead the reader through an exciting adventure; the rediscovery of oneself.
