Podcast interview on the Kabbalah

This manuscript shows the ancient unpointed Hebrew text from the Book of Exodus.

This post links to a podcast which was broadcast live on Unity Radio, on the 5thof November 2018. It is a conversation between myself and the Rev Maggie Whitehouse in which we discuss the difficulties in gaining an authentic translation of biblical texts from ancient Greek and Hebrew into modern languages.

We also discuss the Kabbalistic understanding of the names of God such as Ehieh, JHVH and Elohim. When we approach them more deeply, through the Hebrew letters, and in a meditative state, we realize that these are not names of any “thing.” Rather they are meditations, pointers to the Essence of all life that lies within the Heart of every human being and of every life form, as their infinite potential. 

JHVH and Elohim were never intended as names of an objective entity (a deity), which needed to be worshipped. The Hebrew letters act as bridges between the conceptual mind and the non-conceptual consciousness. They point to the Essence of who you really are: to the Source of all life deep within: No-thing- All, timeless and formless, in which the communion of existence takes place.  

The purpose of Kabbalah – which means to be consciously receptive to this Essence of all life – is to awaken the Soul into its spiritual home, which is present within you now. From there you can begin to transmit the teaching, primarily wordlessly, to others who are already open to receiving.
