This is a unique collection of excerpts from a man whose wisdom has earned him devoted students in North America and the world over. Michael Laitman is a scientist, a Kabbalist, and a great thinker who presents ancient wisdom in a compelling style. Written in a unique and metaphorical language, this book speaks to us in a sincere, yet thought-provoking manner while answering the deepest questions all humans have asked. When life gets out of hand, when we need a moment to reflect and to be alone with our thoughts, this book will help us rediscover our inner compass. This book does not profess to teach Kabbalah, but rather gently introduces ideas from the teaching. The Point in the Heart is a window to a new perception. As the author himself testifies to the wisdom of Kabbalah, "It is a science of emotion, a science of pleasure. You are welcome to open and to taste". In Kabbalah, the heart is a symbol of our desire to enjoy. And the point in the heart is that special, intimate moment when we ask ourselves about our purpose for being here. It is that time when we pause and reflect on what lies beyond the incessant "gadget-chase" and ask not if we really need them, but why is it that we want them in the first place. In Laitmans own words, this is "the beginning of the soul, the first step toward revealing love". When you need a light in the dark, this book will be your candle.
