Re: The Power of Thought: Leviticus 26:3

Greetings and blessings to you all, Thank you Tau for this beautiful and clear teaching on the heart. Special thanks for this: [quote="Tau Malachi"]“I know” or “I do not know,” these two thoughts are one and the same, corresponding with the klippah of the heart; hence, both are obstruction...

Re: Your Daily Practice

Greetings David, Welcome to the forum. I have long been interested in the role of nutrition as a healing tool, and as a factor in spiritual growth. And though I am quite convinced of the important role nutrition plays in physical healing, I am less sure of it's role as regards spiritual growth. Obvi...

Re: The Power of Thought: Leviticus 26:3

Kathleen, you said: I have learned through the practice of meditation that "thoughts running through the mind" are of little to no consequence unless the "heart" identifies with them. This insightful observation gives rise to the question, what is the heart? It is said to be the...

Re: The Power of Thought: Leviticus 26:3

When looking into heart and thoughts I notice, it seems a bit easier to detect thoughts running through the mind, where that which abides in the heart appears a bit more subtle. In this way, perhaps we can say we learn to understand what is in the heart through witnessing the thoughts running throu...

Re: The Power of Thought: Leviticus 26:3

Greetings to you all, I am deeply en-couraged by these two posts. An understanding that all of our compassionate goals and desires, revealed by way of thought, originates from the Spirit, unfolds for me here in this distinction of statute and law. As does also an understanding of "gnosis" ...

Re: Uplifting Feelings of Lack

This perfection of which you speak, Tau Malachi, is very healing and necessary in times of natural restrictions of consciousness. Who I am as I am in the Holy One is perfect, complete, lacking nothing. The shift to myself as I am in myself is an inevitable shift towards lack. I used to think this w...

Re: Gifted Worship without an Inner Community

Greetings Tau and Sheryl, Blessings to you both in abundance of the blessings you bestow. I've spent the better part of this week pondering the thoughts you've shared; examining my current life in its light, and wrestling through some concepts that I've held that may be outworn, or misapprehended in...

Re: Six Essentials and Interior Stars

Thank you Tau! I so enjoy words with layers of meaning. Devekut is an interesting word, especially as it indicates meanings that appear polar opposites to one another. One is tempted to see some fertile ground in the gap between the two apparently disparate meanings, as if they are two sides of the ...

Re: Six Essentials and Interior Stars

These six essentials lay out a way to walk the path in which naturally over time purification happens, healing happens. Our way is an organic method, as has been said in teachings, " it is like water wearing away a stone ". Thank you Elder Sarah, The process of "water wearing away st...

Re: Six Essentials and Interior Stars

What I notice in my journey is that it began in a highly pressurized state. The metaphor of a deep sea diver coming to the surface in stages comes to mind here. Rising too quickly can do great harm, even cause death, as the diver experiences decompression sickness, also know as "the bends.&quo...

Re: Gifted Worship without an Inner Community

Thank you Sheryl, I believe that I understand what you are saying. These feelings that are akin to falling in love happen from time to time. A stirring passage in a book that clicks for me can bring this on. And though my desire to stay in solitude and study and prayer or contemplation becomes keen,...

Re: The Gnostic Path

Greetings Tau and Sheryl, Thank you both for your generous response to my post and for your offerings. A written practice necessarily appears fixed and formal and yet in practice it is not so. To express every nuance or variable would not be possible, and indeed, the conditions of any given day, and...

Thank you Elder Gideon and Bevan. It is good to have been given some direction in where best to begin and the help offered is much appreciated. I want to say that I have had the fellowship very much on my mind and heart these last few days. In fact, I have been quite stirred up with an energy akin t...

Re: Greetings from Cajun Country

Thank you for the warm welcome. Having spent some time on the forum today I feel a bit as if I've entered a foreign language site. I'm not conversant in Kabbalistic or Gnostic language I'm afraid. Never mind though...I'll learn. Still there is much of help and interest here and I am warmed by the qu...
