Vanishing Path: How to Be While There Is Still Time

$29.95

Spiritual transformation is the crucial ingredient for humans to survive and flourish. By contemplating the mystical rhythms of the Hebrew calendar, Krassen challenges us to go beyond optimism and pessimism, to reflect on the nature of reality through an enlightened lens that makes time count, so we can still Be.

Product Description

Rational, objective, physical solutions to our global problems are necessary, they cannot be sufficient. Spiritual transformation is the crucial ingredient for human survival and flourishing, as long as we survive, while there is still time. There can only be a will to Be, and an inspiring human future while human beings are still inspired. Krassen points to the clear pivot point: time. No longer can there be an aspiration to a future we project from the standpoint of the dualistic world-that-is-going, but rather the time has come embrace a hope that is embedded in a fuller, grander, and more profound understanding of what time and being actually already are. All of time is always here, in existence as we can live it. By contemplating the mystical rhythms of the Hebrew calendar, Krassen challenges us to go beyond optimism and pessimism. Both are dead ends, built on a concept of time that is outmoded. The Vanishing Path before us can still be contemplated if only we reflect on the nature of reality through an enlightened lens that makes time count so we can still Be.

Reviews

“Reb Miles’s teachings touch the clear pivot point: time. We can no longer aspire to a future we project from the standpoint of the dualistic world-that-is-going, but rather embrace a hope that is embedded in a fuller, grander, and more profound understanding of what time and being actually already are.”
—Norman Fischer, Zen priest and poet, founder of the Everyday Zen Foundation
“Miles Krassen reminds us that time may well be running out. As such, he wisely calls upon us to not waste time hoping to attain the always aspirational (and thus, unattainable) goals of the ‘world-that-is-going,’ but encourages us to take an ‘about-face’—a turn toward an emerging paradigm of spiritual paths that can more effectively guide us (through their own self-erasure in time) to the timeless source of the ‘world-that-is-coming.’”
—Rabbi Dr. Zvi Ish-Shalom is an associate professor at Naropa University, founder of the Kedumah Institute, and author of The Kedumah Experience
“Like so many contemporary seekers holding dual passports and living with hybrid identities, I too am perennially reading, reflecting, and meditating upon the contemporary classic of spiritual guidance residing at the core of the masterful meditation on the sacred time in This Is Real and You Are Totally Unprepared from Rabbi Alan Lew, o.b.m. Now the time has come for This Is Real 2.0, and there is no teacher more poised to challenge our assumptions and hyper-speed through the paradigm crash of the world-that-is-going into the world-that-is-coming than Reb Miles (Moshe Aaron) Krassen. As the world—and especially America—falls deeper and deeper into a cataclysmic heiner felt-spiritual comatose, I have never felt so strongly this call of love emerging from Reb Miles for us to wake up again. From the aroma of infinity, his Torah of the future beckons us now, and the incense of his spirit gets each and every neshamah-pneumatic soul very interested to become aligned again with the balance of time.”
Rabbi Dr. Aubrey L. Glazer, founder of Panui Institute
