The other thing that was so amazing about [Rabbi] Zalman was his willingness to draw upon any spiritual tradition, as well as his seemingly bottomless knowledge of Judaism and all world religions. The point was gettting closer to spirit, liberation, and loving. Zalman used to say that we need to take the freeze-dried crystals of Judaism and mix them with the pure water of our intention, our creativity, our very lives, so that we can be nurtured and nourish others.
