"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
"Eternal life is available to every one of us, here and now."

"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."

"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."
"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."
"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."
"We are connected via our souls to the source of creation, and we can transform the flow of creation."
"The linchpin of our relationship with God is founded on the belief that human beings have creative capability to intervene in the 'normal' course of events. One word, one gesture, or even one thought can change the direction of the creative process. This being so, we are led to conclude that human beings play a cocreative role."
"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."
"One aspect of the soul is always joined with the center of creation, and this is our eternal link with truth."

"Each part in the universe is in dynamic relationship with every other part."
"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."
"The process of expanding awareness in ourselves and the world is the fundamental reason for our existence."
"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."
"Nothing is inconsequential. Each grain of sand holds amazing secrets. Each event contains mysterious messages. Every encounter with another being is a point of contact upon which the universe pivots. When we enter into this frame of mind, reality as we see it becomes a vast opportunity to experience the interconnectedness of all creation. From this perspective, we come to the realization that every piece is integral in the unfolding of creation, including us."
