This 41 page book has probably affected me more than
any other I've read. I first read it 20 years ago and I
keep coming back. Written in 1950 it's a "self-help" book
by one of the leading philosophers of the 20th
'Where is the dwelling of God?'
This is the question with which the Rabbi of Kotzk
surprised a number of learned men who happened to be
They laughed at him: 'What a thing to ask! Is not
the whole world full of his glory?'
Then he answered his own question:
'God dwells wherever man Iets him in.'
This is the ultimate purpose: to Iet God in. But we
can let him in only where we really stand, where we
live, where we live a true life. If we maintain holy
intercourse with the little world entrusted to us, if
we help the holy spiritual substance to accomplish
itself in that section of Creation in which we are
living, then we are establishing, in this our place, a
dwelling for the Divine Presence.
