a short story about the spiritual path, A Journey to the Tree of Life, The holy rabbi said, "So it is that I brought you with me into Paradise where “there is a tree of life for those who do His will.” Sadly the further we went, the fewer were those who followed. When I came to the Tree of Life, I found that all of you had lingered behind.”

a short story, The Water Carrier, Psalms and Prayer,

Sefer Tehillim, the Book of Psalms is treasured by people throughout the world. It has always been a faithful companion and source of spiritual strength, giving voice to prayer, comfort in misfortune and light in darkness. Sadly too many take the Book of Psalms for granted by merely reciting the Psalms mechanically – by rote.
