Torah and Veda are two ancient sources of spirituality still vibrant today. Torah is conveyed through the sacred language of Hebrew and Veda is conveyed through the sacred language of Sanskrit. The focus here is on meditation, mysticism, philosophy, psychology and the underlying spirituality that has been incorporated into religions, and not as much on the religions themselves.

Quote of the Week 378 - Core Teaching of Buddhism

The core teaching of Buddhism is to help people become less self-centered and learn how to give love to others.

--Lama Surya Dass, as quoted in Spirituality and Health magazine, September/October 2017 issue


I will be making a presentation at the Atlanta Southeast Limmud this Labor Day weekend, with the following title:

Job’s Second Daughters and the Kabbalah of the Unicorn.

There has been much existential hand-wringing discussion over the centuries about the Book of Job. However, there has been little focus on the significance of the concluding verses and his second set of daughters. Come explore these interesting passages and the mystical significance of how one daughter’s name relates to a single-horned creature, sometimes associated with a unicorn.

Quote of the Week 108 - My Reality

My reality: There is Divine Love, Grace, Guidance, Providence, Nurturance, internal and external. It is available all of the time to everyone. However, it is not always accessible due to self-constructed obstacles. Our mission is two-fold, individually and collectively. First, to engage in spiritual work, purification processes which involve recognizing and removing the obstacles that restrict access to Divinity. Next, once access is attained, to express and expand the virtues inspired by contact with Divinity while controlling vices originating in the self-imposed constriction of limitation. By engaging the dynamic duo of Divine Heart working in concert with Divine Mind, anything is possible. Ponder Infinity. Awake. Arise.
