Zum Nachdenken: Abraham Josua Heschel und geistliches Leben

"The highest peak of spiritual living is not necessarily reached in rare moments of ecstasy; the highest peak lies wherever we are and may be ascended in a common deed. […] Jewish tradition maintains that there is no exterritoriality in the realm of the spirit. […] Judaism begins at the bottom, taking very seriously the forms of one's behavior in relation to the external, even conventional functions and amenities of life,, teaching us how to eat, how to rest, how to act." - Abraham J. Heschel, Man's Quest for God. Studies in prayer and symbolism, Santa Fe 1998, S.111
