Survivorcorps and Ban Cluster Bombs

Please check out the following web sites: and

The focus of this blog is on the more contemplative, psychological and philosophical aspects to spiritual development, and not particularly on social causes or activism. That is not to say that spiritual pursuits are inconsistent with social activism, as inner spiritual development should work hand-in-hand with engaging in external activity. It is only that this blog chooses to narrow its focus on the more internal aspects to human development, and it leaves it up to each individual as to how to integrate their inner spiritual development into engagement in external activities. There is a multitude of worthwhile social and charitable activities and causes which one can support in a variety of avenues available and seeking our assistance, so much so that it can be confusing to sort through them all and decide what choices of support should be made. However, once in a while, when I am contacted by someone representing a social cause that appears to have particular merit to assist in spreading their word, I may choose to lend some assistance. I have been contacted by an organization called Survivor Corps and have reviewed their web sites. They have asked for me to help spread the word about their mission, and I have agreed to do so. I cannot vouch for them, as I know nothing more about them than what I have read on their sites. I will leave it for everyone to come to their own conclusions, and to please notify me if something amiss is discovered about this organization. In the meantime, in response to their request, I ask you to check out their web sites: and

It is easily found by searching my name, or by searching the full title and subtitle. You can also click on the image of the book in the right hand column of this blog.

What a great way to start the New Year, cozying up to a fire, real or imagined, and reading a new spiritually inspiring book, sure to become a classic!

DIMENSIONS: Navigating the Spiritual Spectrum

Grounded in the traditions of Torah and Veda, Steven J. Gold takes us on an oceanic tour of the depth and breadth of spiritual consciousness. Sharing personal stories and insights into various traditional scriptures as examples, he urges us to adopt a spiritual worldview, to “ponder infinity, awake and arise,” to “find your inspiration and follow it.”

“The chapters…are records of what happens when Steve’s right mind, and heart, are given full freedom to wander where they wish. As discoveries and correlations are made, his well-trained left mind and sharp wit give his observations shape and form…” – Brother Shankara, Resident Minister, Vedanta Center of Atlanta

“Universal Ice Cream: Dive deep into Steve’s wonderful book to help find your favorite flavor on the Spiritual Spectrum.” – Rabbi Mitch Cohen, Spiritual Leader, Congregation Shalom B’Harim, Dahlonega, GA

“Steven J. Gold’s Dimensions is an exploration of spirituality from the inside out. If you are looking for a guide through the pathless land of truth, read this book.” – Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author of The World Wisdom Bible
