Quote of the Week 201 - The Everlasting Light

As we enter this season of celebration of Divine Light as a counter-balance to the shortest hours of daylight, I share with you this quote from the Prophets:

Quote of the Week 201 - The Everlasting Light

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and God’s glory has risen upon you…Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising…you will see and be radiant, and your heart will throb and swell with joy…I will exchange your brass for gold, your iron for silver, your wood for brass, your stones for iron; I will also make your officers Peace and your rules Righteousness…The sun will no longer be your light by day, nor will the moon give light for brightness. But God will be your everlasting light, and your God your glory. Your sun will no longer set, nor will your moon wane. For God will be your everlasting light, and your days of mourning will be ended.

Isaiah 60:1-20 (Haftorah of Ki Tavo)

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
