If you plant this little grain in the earth
where it belongs, in contact with the soil,
the rain, the air, the sunshine and the light of the moon and of the stars, then, like a universe
in itself, it will begin to grow bigger and bigger.
Likewise YOU, if you would grow in knowledge
must go into your garden,
where you will be close to all the forces of nature
and of the universe--to the sum total of things."
From The Essene Gospel of Peace:
"Let the angels of God prepare your bread. Moisten your wheat, that the angel of water may enter it. Then set it in the air, that the angel of air also may embrace it. And leave it from morning to evening beneath the sun, that the angel of sunshine may descend upon it. And the blessing of the three angels will soon make the germ of life to sprout in your wheat . Then crush your grain, and make thin wafers, as did your forefathers when they departed out of Egypt, the house of bondage. Put them back again beneath the sun from its appearing, and when is is risen to its highest in the heavens, turn them over on the other side that they be embraced there also by the angel of sunshine, and leave them there until the sun be set. For the angels of water, of air, and of sunshine fed and ripened the wheat in the field and they, likewise, must prepare also your bread. And the same sun which, with the fire of life, made the wheat to grow and ripen must cook your bread with the same fire. For the fire of the sun gives life to the wheat, to the bread, and to the body" --From "The Essene Gospel of Peace,

My Favorite Cactus
Meditation for the 16h day of the Omer Countdown
toward the Marriage with God.
Daily Focus from Rabbi Ted Falcon,
from his book A Journey of Awakening,
Kabbalistic Meditations on the Tree of Life:
"I feel the Light grow clearer in my own heart space.
Now I bring my feelings into this Light.
All aspects of my life are illuminated with special blessing.
I awaken to a deep inner Compassion from which
I realize healng and wholeness now."
"We are not asked to deny the shadow side of our own being.
We are not asked to pretend that the problematic aspects
of oiur existence and our struggles for awareness do not exist.
We are asked to bring these struggles with us, to discover
ways to walk with our fears as allies,
to release the power hidden within them."

A meditative approach to greater awareness by a rabbi-psychotherapist who has taught Jewish meditation for almost thirty years.
Written originally for the 49-day Omer period between Passover and Shavuot (the receiving of Torah at Mt. Sinai), A JOURNEY OF AWAKENING has been expanded for use over any seven-week period of the year.
I know an Orthodox Rabbi who once lived in my neighborhood. He was kind and friendly. I attended a dinner at the synagogue. I was stunned by the poor quality of the food, especially the bread. I heard blessing on this bread; yet how much blessing was in the bread itself? I did not know what to do with my feelings. I happened to have some wheat seeds. To increase nutritional awareness, I promised I would grow him a Challah, a loaf of bread. The day of the first year's harvest, he came over and helped me separate the wheat from the chaff. I saw a little boy come out, and more. Deep meanings in the Holy Books took on great new insight for him. Nature references became clear. Please grow some wheat seeds. Let me know what you learn...
He went on to other gardens
