EPIGENETICS & GENERATIONAL CURSES

LICK YOUR PUPS: HOW NURTURE AFFECTS NATURE So there’s this wonderful research by Dr. Moshe Szyf and Dr. Michael Meaney that came out of the McGill University a couple of decades ago. They’d noticed that some rat mothers licked their pups after being handled by members of the team while others sort of ignored the […]

CREATURE AND CREATOR

Meister Eckhart is by far one of the most prolific writers of the Christian mystic tradition. His insights into how we are to become vessels filled with the light and love of God have comforted me in a way few others have. I’d like to share a piece from his Book of Divine Consolation with you as […]

JACOB BOEHME

Boehme taught that we human beings have a hidden essence within us that is God. A divine spark that remains within us looking to be found. “An immortal Dowry.” – “an inward Ground and unlost Possession.” He talked of an “innermost Birth” that happens when we start the work of discovering this inward Dowry. I […]

THE TRIPTYCH GRAIL: Melchizedek

Melchizedek is one of those really obscure characters in the Bible that doesn’t get much light shone on him. About all we have to go on is a handful of passages that have little to no details. The first mention of Melchizedek is in Genesis 14: “And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and […]

SOLA LITERALIS

So I’ve spent years racking my brain trying to understand why Christians are so indoctrinated with this concept of the New Testament that flies in the face of what Rav Yeshua actually taught: The close minded interpretations The attacks on different faiths The outright refusal to acknowledge mysticism The mistreatment of same sex couples. None […]
