How shall I give you up, Ephraim? How shall I surrender you, Israel? How shall I make you as Admah? How shall I set you as Zeboim? (Hos 11:8).

The consensual silence of man in the face of the most horrid neglect of Him who is infinite love is abominable (Dn 9:27, 11:31, 12:11). It is the silence of those who are neither hot, nor cold (Rv 3:16) – the silence of the lukewarm. The silence Continue reading “To the people – 4”

Return, O Israel, unto HaShem your God, for you have stumbled in your iniquity (Hos 14:2).

A voice in the desert, the barren wilderness, cries out to God’s own people:

Not even the slightest spark of reverence exists in His Presence any longer. All is dead despite the appearance of being alive, for love in the hearts of this people has grown cold and bitter.

“Behold, HaShem passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before HaShem; but HaShem was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but HaShem was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake a fire, but HaShem was not in the fire. And after Continue reading “Meeting the Lord God of hosts”

The Upper Room – 2

It is in the quiet, the stillness and the silence, that we are able to enter fully into the Upper Room of the heart of our souls, the nous. However, our ability to effectively enter into the Upper Room depends on the degree to which we allow ourselves to become purified from our ongoing sinfulness, by openly Continue reading “The Upper Room – 2”
