Toward the Infinite is a guide to focusing on the Kabbalistic Hitbonenut - deep contemplation method of meditation. It encompasses the entire meditative experience and takes the reader on an engaging journey through meditation, beginning with the readying of oneself for the meditation and continuing through the actual meditative experience. The various states and expansiveness of consciousness are discussed. Whereas we may begin on a level of ego-centricity, we slowly peal away the shells of superficiality and attain a state of total bitul ha'yesh -negation of separate self and dip into a condition of ayin - nothingness and non-awareness. Ultimately, the journey comes full circle with the positive effects the meditation has on the meditator's daily life. Written for a wide range of readers, this book deliberately excludes learned quotations and references yet it is uncompromising in the truth of its teachings. This intellectually stimulating and emotionally engaging exploration of mediation is both inspirational and spiritually uplifting.
