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

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

2 "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."

3 "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."

4 "Nothing is separate, except for the 'sense' of separateness, a feeling which is readily disproven."

5 "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."

6 "May our lives be filled with the ongoing truth in which we are saturated with love, caring, and kindness. And may we serve the world from the level of awareness."

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

8 "One aspect of the soul is always joined with the center of creation, and this is our eternal link with truth."

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

10 "Each part in the universe is in dynamic relationship with every other part."

11 "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."

12 "Our acts of lovingkindness not only matter, they are the medium through which we can bring the world together in a new era of human relationship."

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

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

16 "May we be blessed to grow together in increasing awareness, to bring a new consciousness to the world, and to experience true peace in our time."

17 "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."

18 "Just as we know that there was some kind of paradigm shift from animal consciousness to prehistoric human consciousness, and that human consciousness has gone through stages measured in various ways, such as social awareness, technological development, or basic intelligence…there is yet to come a major paradigm shift toward an entirely new level of awareness. In this advanced state, pain and suffering as we know it will vanish, war will end, our relationships with one another will dramatically be altered, the lion will lie with the lamb, so to speak, and life will be completely different from anything we might imagine."

19 "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.'"

20 "All of creation is interconnected and interdependent. There is no subject or object, for each arises simultaneously with the other and cannot exist on its own."

21 "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."

22 "Perhaps you feel that having an intimate relationship with the Divine is beyond you, reserved for others….This is not so. It is part of our heritage; it is yours and mind to have. All we need do is learn how to let go of our fear, for fear maintains the barriers of separation."

23 "The Holy One is the Soul of souls, the Spirit of spirits." Zohar 1:103b

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

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