a Covenant of Salt: the "el "in elevate itself There is in the word assault, the word SALT, and I mention this because of the story about salt ad also a story that I am recording that is deeply about words and the actualization of the potentials within the letters.

We teach in metaphor and parables, and it could be said that all life is truly metaphor, and so to take care of one's house, to make it shine, could be as caring for a baby, to see all scrolls of paper as Torah, is to see that all is truly metaphor and yes, we can branch out, and see that the physical and the spiritual are closely connected. Those poets among us, are doing this constantly, in perceiving through metaphor a connectivity with ONE, and all acts of creativity are again, about this.

I come from a long line of famous rabbis who were known as Kabbalists, but one could say, all kowledge is received.

I am seeing that G_d wrote the entire story, that is deeply about us all. Reply

presenter N. Freeman expounded beautifully upon her topic leaving the listener with a palpable sense of spiritual appreciation or at least the will to aspire to it.

She comes across as very knowledgeable too. Reply
