Greetings Phillip and Tau Malachi! In contemplating Phillip's post I wonder if the perception he is speaking of is related to sparks that we are carrying in our incarnation. The idea I'm thinking of is the idea in Kabbalah that we are not one "unified" spirit but actually a collection of s...

Greetings Tau Malachi! Thank you for this contemplation. It is trully beautiful to behold as we see our friends (and ourselves) on this journey. One question that came up for me is whether there is some amount of ebb and flow in this process. As we have progress and regress in our spiritual transfor...

Netzach & Hod - Clear & Hazy prophecy

Greetings Tau Malachi!! I had a quesiton about Netzach & Hod from the standpoint of the clear and hazy mirror of prophecy. The way I understand it is that Hod is a hazy mirror of prophecy because the Navi or Prophet sees symbols, visions, etc. and then can interpret the prophetic message. On the...

Greetings Melissa! In our Tradition we see the bread as the Body of Light and the wine as the Blood of Fire. These are relative to Yeshua's spiritual body (the body of light).

I would say a couple reasons. First, I do not bake very often and probably wouldn't know vanilla if it hit me over the head. Second, biologically women are generally better with the sense of smell then men.
