To some people, spiritual growth means lofty platitudes, revelations, and exotic rituals. To me, real spirituality is quite practical and tangible, gauged by happiness and inner peace on the positive side, and by anger on the negative side. Happiness comes from the divine human spirit within, and not from outside stimuli. Simply speaking, the happier we are, the more spiritual we are. For that reason, authentic spirituality has the power to help us overcome anger and attain happiness.

Getting to know the real "you" is the first step toward spiritual growth. As in medicine, proper diagnosis is half the cure. Today's program discusses ten exemplary levels of the anger-tranquility continuum. By looking at examples of others, you'll learn about yourself. "Aha," you might say to yourself, "I react just like the person on level so-and-so!" You thereby can establish your current position along the continuum. As such, today's broadcast is diagnostic in nature, and serves as the point of origin on your journey to an anger-free life.

Special treat! The lovely emuna music of sweet singer David Dome.

Multi-talented author, speaker, composer and spiritual guide, Rabbi Lazer Brody came to Israel from the USA in 1970 after graduating from the University of Maryland’s College of Agriculture. A decorated veteran of an elite IDF Special Forces Unit, he left his mountaintop farm in Samaria in 1982 and began intensive Torah studies that led to his rabbinical ordination in 1992. Rabbi Brody pens the award-winning Lazer Beams weblog , is the English-language editor of Breslev Israel web magazine , and the author of numerous books in Hebrew and English including the highly-acclaimed 'The Trail to Tranquility'.  His translation of 'The Garden of Emuna', written by his rabbi and spiritual guide Rav Shalom Arush shlit’a, has become an international best seller. In addition, Rabbi Brody’s original Calming Waters album is an exquisite collection of his soul-healing flute melodies. He hosts the Lazer Beams podcast every Thursday at 7:00 p.m. Israel time on Israel National Radio.
