Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I once read a humorously self-deprecating blurb on the back of a book (I can't remember the title or either writer's name) that said, "This book works on many levels, including mine." This applies perfectly to my experience with "Love's Voice." I know absolutely nothing about Kabbalah (or mysticism in general), so I'm sure there are countless references and allusions in it to which I'm oblivious, and that have broadened their meaning to other fans--but even without that background, I find that they resonate for, move, and inspire me. Many of them hit me like personal challenges to grow spiritually: to spend my days in a state of greater awareness/mindfulness and endeavor to maintain a more meaningful--and therefore satisfying--life perspective. And the fact that they are haiku makes them all the more astonishing to me, in terms of both Zimler's "technical virtuosity" with such a challenging style and the fact that he has taken Kabbalistic truths and boiled them down to such pure, concise nuggets. Finally, they may all be expressions of Kabbalistic philosophy, but I feel as if many of them share, or clarify/expand upon, profound insights that can also be found in Buddhism, the Abrahamic religions, and in other proverbs from around the world from ancient to modern times. I could easily see this collection on a shelf alongside, say, the meditations of Confucius, Pascal, St. Francis of Assisi, the Dalai Lama, Borges, Huxley, Saint Exupery, la Rochefoucauld, Saki, Twain, Aristotle, Gandhi.... It's a slim volume, but it packs a punch that is well worth the price.
