Daily Wisdom-isms

I’m not saying PKD isn’t wise. On the contrary. Studying the Exegesis has opened my eyes to more than a few ideas and concepts I’ve not considered. Dick’s opus also aided in congealing theological issues I’ve been mulling over. Nevertheless, my quest has led me to other sources of inspiration. I’d like to share some of that with you. Today’s Wisdom-ism comes from The Essential Kabbalah by Daniel C. Matt. Enjoy!

“Every definition of God leads to heresy; definition is spiritual idolatry. Even attributing mind and will to God, even attributing Divinity itself and the name “God”–These too are definitions. Were it not for the subtle awareness that all these are just sparkling flashes of that which transcends definition–these, too, would engender heresy.” —Essential Kabbalah p. 32

About Universal Shift

I am the Sonata Unusual. I coat myself with some obtuse angle too far below zero to become any warmer. I create motivation, activate schemas, moisten gardens with scents of natural honeydew. Construct this meaning, you sleepy flock. Silence your singing—despairing contortions out of tune. Shatter the brittle butterfly glass with your hideous wailing. I am born of my god’s imagination. When I die I shall meet him. For there are many things to discuss over tea…or scotch.
