WELCOME TO TORAH-VEDA

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. Your comments and posts are welcome.

Torah-Veda
An Interspiritual Journey
Find Your Inspiration and Follow It



Quote of the Week 379 - Song


Those who wish to sing always find a song.

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

Quote of the Week 357 - Another Train

Another Train
Music and Lyrics by Pete Morton

The beginning is now
And will always be
You say you’ve lost your chance
That fate brought you defeat
But that means nothing
You look so sad
You've been listening to those
Who say you’ve missed your chance

There's another train
There always is
Maybe the next one is yours
Get up and climb aboard
Another train

You feel you’re done
There's no such thing
Although you’re standing on your own
Your own breath is king
The beginning is now
Don't turn around
Regrets about mistakes
Will only drain you

We crawl in the dark sometimes
And think too much
Then we fill our heads with crazy things
That only break our hearts
And I know you've seen
What the earth can do
When it's dragging down another load
Of worrisome fools

I know it's hard
When you feel confused
You can cram yourself with fear
And you you feel you cannot move
You’re building worlds
That don't exist
Imagination plays
The worst tricks

There's another train
There always is
Maybe the next one is yours
Get up and climb aboard…
