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 37 - Wind, Water, Stone

Wind, Water, Stone

Water hollows stone,
wind scatters water,
stone stops the wind.
Water, wind, stone.

Wind carves stone,
stone's a cup of water,
water escapes and is wind.
Stone, wind, water.

Wind sings in its whirling,
water murmurs going by,
unmoving stone keeps still.
Wind, water, stone.

Each is another and no other:
crossing and vanishing
through their empty names:
water, stone, wind.


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.

Please check out the following, which is an ongoing activity that may be of interest:

Quote of the Week 167 - The Unknowable

“Anyone who has ever written a song understands the magical, mysterious process that is involved.”

--Paul McCartney

Art, music, anything of beauty are expressions from and portals to the unknown that will always remain unknown. Neither science nor religion can ever know this unknown. They can only acknowledge its existence. Some call it the realm of the Divine, the realm of Spirituality. “Inspiration” means to be filled with the life force, the breath of spirit and to be moved by it. Those cognizant of this realm don’t attempt to know it or explain it, they merely try to connect with it and remain inspired by it.
