Daily Wisdom Post: Aleph

The third stage to which Hebrew mysticism invites us–each in our own way–is the experience of unity consciousness as the guiding principle of our lives.  This is the final stage on our journey.  It is an invitation to Aleph consciousness.  Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet.  In Hebrew each letter is also a number.  So Aleph is echad, one.  Aleph has no sound of its own.

Aleph is the ecstasy that is beyond.  It is an invitation to the highest and deepest part of your soul, which is part of the oneness of God. Experience it, even for a moment, and your life will never be quite the same again.

Now the mystery of love can be fully revealed.  Love is the perception of the essential oneness of all of reality.  The Hebrew mantra of the Shema–”listen so that you know God is one”–is in biblical myth law the only prayer mantra that one recites every day. This Shema mantra is directly preceded by the word love and directly followed by the word love.  A love sandwich.
