Title: The Trail To Tranquillity

JewishPress Logo

      Want to improve your appearance, enhance your effectiveness at home and at work, and stop having angry outbursts? The solution is not time at some spa or an expensive vacation, not even a tranquilizer. It’s a four-part plan for spiritual growth that culminates in inner peace. “The Trail to Tranquillity” by Rabbi Lazer Brody contains it all in a 280-page paperback that is your personal guide to overcoming anger and to attaining genuine inner peace. The book is such an effective tool in stress-filled Israel that friends are buying it for each other throughout the Holy Land. Recipients and givers smile instead of feeling insulted or worried.


         Bypassing the embarrassment that often goes with face-to-face therapy or in-your-face criticism, readers can discreetly study the lessons that Rabbi Brody presents when he describes levels of anger. The author allows each reader to identify his or her position on the spirituality continuum (it stretches from Total Anger to Tranquillity) in the safety of a silent reading. It’s the beginning of a vastly improved relationship with oneself.


        Progressing to spiritual map reading in the second part of the book, Rabbi Brody helps readers to grasp the concept of spiritual awareness and its crucial role in the achievement of inner peace. “That may seem like a bombastic claim,” writes the author, “but it’s really very simple. Emotional disorders stem from misuse of the soul As soon as we begin to use our soul properly, emotional difficulties become a figment of the past.” Then he explains how to become more spiritually aware and to activate one’s soul to maximum potential. The deep satisfaction that goes with that accomplishment eases the grimaces on formerly scowling faces. The radiance that results from the sense of calm permeating the spiritually aware mind shines upon all observers.


         Do you want God to talk to you? Rabbi Brody illustrates that He does talk to you, but has been misunderstood or overlooked completely. The lines of communication are open as Hashem stimulates our environments, guiding events in our lives. Now that you know, your spiritual awareness is improving, Rabbi Brody writes. Better yet, “The more we attain spiritual awareness, the more we neutralize anger. As such, spiritual awareness is the map that directs us to the trail of tranquility.” His claims are based on 3,300 years of Torah teachings guiding us in negotiating the ups and downs of life.


         A chart of twenty factors that affect spiritual awareness is conveniently placed on page 107 for easy reference and self-correction. It precedes the section about making peace with God. The high point of the book, it breaks the counterproductive emotional bonds strapping you to repetitive confrontations and litanies of lies or memorized complaints about life. You’ll understand how Dovid Hamelech could sing serenades of praise to Hashem as he outran his enemies, bemoaned strife in his life and kingdom, wondering if he’d live through the challenge before him. Rabbi Brody coaches readers on the next few pages about how to pray from newly liberated souls as honestly as King Dovid did. Plant your flag on the mountaintop capping the Trail to Tranquillity with words of personal yearning. You’ll have arrived there as you linger on the last page of this phenomenal book.
