People harbor the popular misconception that "religious" is synonymous to proximity with G-d. Not necessarily! There's much more to getting close to G-d than dressing the part or going through the motions. In today's broadcast, Rabbi Lazer discusses eight diagnostic parameters that indicate closeness with G-d, based on the chapter "Spiritual Map Reading" from his highly acclaimed non-denominational self-help book, The Trail to Tranquility.

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.
