Quote of the Week 65 - A.D. Gordon

“And when you, O human, will return to Nature, that day your eyes will open, you will stare straight into the eyes of Nature and in its mirror you will see your image. You will know…that when you hid from Nature, you hid from yourself…We who have been turned away from Nature – if we desire life, we must establish a new relationship with Nature.”
- A.D. Gordon, quoted in On the Wings of Shekhinah, Rediscovering Judaism’s Divine Feminine, by Rabbi Leah Novick

Hello, Steve. It's been a while. If life is what we make it, what role does He play?

Steve Gold said...

Life in the realm of the relative is what we collectively make it, and the collective includes all He’s, he’s, She’s, she’s, It’s, it’s and genderless beings and entities of every kind, from the lowest to the highest, from the most gross to the most subtle, from the most sacred to the most mundane, all of which have a role to play, whether they know it or not. In the realm of the absolute, there is only One beyond all distinction and beyond all roles.

Quote of the Week 381 - Heaven

Heaven is all round,

Translated to sound.

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
