God Is A Verb, Kabbalah and the Practice of Mystical Judaism
Rabbi David A. Cooper

1 "We are connected via our souls to the source of creation, and we can transform the flow of creation."

2 "The world is an integrated whole, not a collection of parts….Individuals and nations are not separate; everyone and everything is interconnected."

3 "Love can be viewed as a unity, a ubiquitous oneness."

4 "We are the accumulation of a set of archetypes that interact with the world drama that enfolds us."

5 "If we see the ongoing relationship betweem God-ing and creation-ing, we fully connect with the understanding that resurrection is a continuous process, happening right now."

6 "Acts of lovingkindness, over the long run, will bring a higher level of consciousness to everyone in the world."

7 "Human consciousness is informed by a soul force that gives it the capacity to emulate the infinite Bestower."

8 "Our job is not to set up a battleground to eradicate evil, but to search out its spark of holiness. Our task is not to destroy but to build, not to hate but to find a place of yielding, not to polarize but to discover the points of commonality so that we can work together. Learn this lesson, dear friends, it will serve you well."

9 "Resurrection is not something for which we must wait. It is always here. Our challenge is to move from ego consciousness to God consciousness."

10 "The ancient kabbalistic idea is a holistic, energetic model of the universe. It cuts across layers of reality and includes every possible dimension of creation….According to this Jewish mystical viewpoint, everything and every 'non-thing' that ever was or will be in creation is interconnected."

11 "Each moment, as God-ing unfolds, we begin anew. Each moment is an opportunity to be fully who we are, or even who we think we want to be. It is always available to us."

12 "We are copartners with God-ing in the cosmic process, and each person has the full freedom of choice to change the universe. Nothing we do, say, or think is inconsequential; every action affects not only this reality but also other realities, and all of creation is interconnected."

13 "We can experience in the depths of our beings the realization that for each step we take, the Divine steps with us; each breath we draw is connected with the breath of the universe."

14 "Our entire life is a perpetual experience of resurrection, if only we were able to perceive it in this way."

15 "Free will at its core is…the ability to bestow light."

16 "Understand this important teaching: When we accept each moment as a new opportunity for fulfilling our purpose, we are always present, always succeeding, always changing the world for the better."

17 "Herein lies the ultimate truth of existence, the God-ing and creation-ing as one process everlasting."

18 "The process of expanding awareness in ourselves and the world is the fundamental reason for our existence."

19 "Each time we make use of our free will by giving, we are in copartnership with the infinite Bestower. When this is accomplished with clear awareness of what we are doing, we raise the consciousness of creation."

20 "The imaginative mind has marvelous access to other realms of reality. The point is not whether or not we are making things up, but instead, that if we can imagine it, some aspect of it exists – 'As above, so below.'"

21 "Everything in the universe is a vessel that 'wills' to receive the light of the infinite bestower. Each molecule, plant, animal, rock and human is a vessel; each has the 'will' to be exactly what it is."

22 "Whatever happens anywhere in the universe reverberates throughout the totality of creation. Thus our lives are affected by what is happening everywhere; moreover, whatever we do in our lives affects everything in the universe."

23 "The ultimate truth of the Divine is Oneness."

24 "Now we are no longer separated from our source, and behold we ARE the source and the source is us. We are so intimately united with It, we cannot by any means be separated from It, for we are It." Abraham Abulafia, 13th century Jewish sage

25 "Every aspect of creation interrelates with every other….every thought, word, or action reverberates throughout the entire creation."
