Immersed as we are in a hectic life, invested by an irrepressible flow of knowledge, notions, social practices, meanings, it becomes essential to have a seismograph able to grasp the trends of our life and a compass to orient ourselves. All this is possible taking care of our inner world. We can take a cue from someone who represents a reference model, indicated as such by different religious and cultural traditions: Abraham. A figure capable of entering our life, through a daily path of simple but demanding meditation. In fact, the protagonist is no longer the unknown “other”, distant from us, but we are called to act in the first person. This proposal, which can be used by everybody, is divided into 190 meditation outlines and 719 questions, according to the approach of Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits and author of the Spiritual Exercises.
