Living in the Present Moment: A Divine Design uses timeless Jewish traditions to guide the reader in exploring ancient insights into how to live in the present with joy and happiness. Jewish holidays and common mitzvot are mined for their distinctive abilities to use our memory to harness wisdom from the past and our imagination to create hopeful visions of the future. Learning how to let go of painful regret from the past and of immobilizing fear of the future lets the reader recognize and appreciate the Divine design our Creator intended for us. Other philosophies advocate simplistically letting go of the past and not thinking about the future. The wiser course, based on Jewish ideals, is described in this book. Designed with sections relevant to specific events and challenges we face in the course of daily living, the guidance offered is at once potentially transformative but also grounded and down-to-earth. Living in the Present Moment will become a companion that invites the reader to return again and again for insight and inspiration.
