GOD IS A VERB, KABBALAH AND THE PRACTICE OF MYSTICAL JUDAISM
Rabbi David A. Cooper

1 "The greater our awareness, the more our perception of multiplicity dissolves."

2 "Nothing is inconsequential. Each grain of sand holds amazing secrets. Each event contains mysterious messages. Every encounter with another being is a point of contact upon which the universe pivots. When we enter into this frame of mind, reality as we see it becomes a vast opportunity to experience the interconnectedness of all creation. From this perspective, we come to the realization that every piece is integral in the unfolding of creation, including us."

3 "Everything in the universe is a vessel that 'wills' to receive the light of the infinite bestower. Each molecule, plant, animal, rock and human is a vessel; each has the 'will' to be exactly what it is."

4 "One's actions, particularly deeds of lovingkindness, profoundly impact upon the universe. Minor actions can have significant consequences;…everything happening to us is connected with a complex weave of variables. Moreover, angelic forces are associated with our thoughts, words and deeds."

5 "Eternal life is available to every one of us, here and now."

6 "The ultimate truth of the Divine is Oneness."

7 "Divine providence includes every ripple that has been sent into the universe by every person who has ever lived and every event that has ever taken place."

8 "Each moment, as God-ing unfolds, we begin anew. Each moment is an opportunity to be fully who we are, or even who we think we want to be. It is always available to us."

9 "The linchpin of our relationship with God is founded on the belief that human beings have creative capability to intervene in the 'normal' course of events. One word, one gesture, or even one thought can change the direction of the creative process. This being so, we are led to conclude that human beings play a cocreative role."

10 "The ancient kabbalistic idea is a holistic, energetic model of the universe. It cuts across layers of reality and includes every possible dimension of creation….According to this Jewish mystical viewpoint, everything and every 'non-thing' that ever was or will be in creation is interconnected."

11 "The Creator's continuous radiation of creative force never ceases from the world; in every instant these vital emanations radiate to Its creations, to all the worlds." Rebbe Levi Yitzhak of Berdichev, 18th century Hasidic master

12 "We can experience in the depths of our beings the realization that for each step we take, the Divine steps with us; each breath we draw is connected with the breath of the universe."

13 "The imaginative mind has marvelous access to other realms of reality. The point is not whether or not we are making things up, but instead, that if we can imagine it, some aspect of it exists – 'As above, so below.'"

14 "We are copartners with God-ing in the cosmic process, and each person has the full freedom of choice to change the universe. Nothing we do, say, or think is inconsequential; every action affects not only this reality but also other realities, and all of creation is interconnected."

15 "In Lurianic Kabbalah, there is only one primordial soul in the world….From this one soul, sparks were disseminated throughout the universe."

16 "Our acts of lovingkindness not only matter, they are the medium through which we can bring the world together in a new era of human relationship."

17 "The dimension of this moment is supported in its entirety by the nature of the Divine. Thus there is a vital relationship between God and every aspect of creation. Each breath I draw is initiated, sustained, and nourished by the power of creation. Each event is permeated by the magic of the Divine Presence."

18 "We are the accumulation of a set of archetypes that interact with the world drama that enfolds us."

19 "Human consciousness is informed by a soul force that gives it the capacity to emulate the infinite Bestower."

20 "Each part in the universe is in dynamic relationship with every other part."

21 "The Holy One is the Soul of souls, the Spirit of spirits." Zohar 1:103b

22 "Resurrection is not something for which we must wait. It is always here. Our challenge is to move from ego consciousness to God consciousness."

23 "One aspect of the soul is always joined with the center of creation, and this is our eternal link with truth."

24 "If we see the ongoing relationship betweem God-ing and creation-ing, we fully connect with the understanding that resurrection is a continuous process, happening right now."

25 "God's presence is everywhere, including one's own consciousness

I would like to contact Richard Roberts to ask permission to reprint the cover art from his Tales for Jung Folk on our website. We have a spiritual astrology section, and this would be a great addition to it--as an personification of the energies of Saturn. Can you help me find Richard? Many thanks, Betsy Caprio, D.Min.

When someone hurts someone we love, our first instinct is to attack them back, that is not who we are... We need to learn to listen to our spirit and not our minds...

Oracle of Compassion: the Living Word of Kuan Yin

"A helpful mindset is simple-living and high-thinking”, continues Kuan Yin. “Science is constantly evolving. There are now recyclable batteries, ink cartridges, etc. Keep up to date on the latest technologies. Be aware, set examples and create trends that will positively influence people’s lives and the environment. As I said earlier, however, this is also a discussion about love and developing a greater capacity to love. It can help everyone. We’re all one huge family, a great continuum. Don’t underestimate the power of the love created in your homes and families. This love has an immense potency, the power to influence other’s lives in a positive way.”-Kuan Yin

Soulistry-Artistry of the Soul

Recently discovered this site through Circle Connections and thought others might like to know of another resource where inspirational quotations offer much "food for thought" insofar as the quotations are accompanied by Soulistry Soul-Questions ... questions which encourage one to go-within and reflect on the quotation from a variety of perspectives. The Soulistry book has just been released and is available on Amazon.com as well as other online booksellers and local bookstores. Thank you for helping me to share news of Soulistry (full title of the book btw is "Soulistry-Artistry of the Soul: Creative Ways to Nurture Your Spirituality").

Dear Bruce: What a remarkable synchronicity it is, to open up this page, and find several amazing quotes from the much-beloved ecospiritual community of Findhorn! This is just another "coincidence" for me, as part of a seemingly-ongoing set of experiences regarding Findhorn and the Nature Spirits. Thank you for including the Spirit of Findhorn on your website! ... By the way, I have been trying to log-in to my page, so that I may update my email address, but am at the moment unable to do so; as of last week, I haven't been able to access my Gmail account, and have set up a new Gmail address: roslynrus33@gmail.com . I shall send you an email directly regarding this. Many blessings, Roslyn.

IlluminatingSpirit - Samantha Spiritual Gathering Westhampton, NY

At Samantha's Spiritual Gathering the mission and purpose is to empty the chalice/temple (self) of all things co-mingled on the Earth plane with earthly people and to Allow the self/being on all levels, to fill up with the Spirit of the Divine Creator... that Spirit which is enmeshed, saturated, and intertwined with your Spirit. Bringing that Spirit down into the Chalice of your beingness...your physical body as well, helps everyone to be empowered through their own Spirit guided by the Divine Creator of many names. The Global Network is a Gathering, sharing Spirit to Spirit and I am humbly grateful to partake in sharing from my space of Spirit. Thank You, Samantha Paitakis
