At this time of year, we tell the story of the exodus of descendants of Abraham (father of Muslims, Christians and Jews) from 400 years of slavery under the Pharaohs (Passover). Moses was brought up in the court of the Pharaoh. But when he went among his own people again, he was grieved to find how sadly they were oppressed. The life force that connects ALL of Creation connected with Moses through a burning bush and Moses, after seeing the sufferings of his people the descendants of Abraham, knew that he would deliver them. Moses commanded Pharaoh to let the people go. The Pharaoh refused. The life force that connects ALL of Existence brought the people out of Egypt. The descendants of Abraham were journeying to a land of freedom in Canaan. It was a journey of forty days but the descendants of Abraham wandered for forty years in the desert. After forty years, the descendants of Abraham were fighting amongst themselves, refusing to follow Moses and worshiping idols and material things at the base of Mt Sinai. To restore order, Moses ascended Mt Sinai to connect with the Spirit that connects ALL of Existence. Moses returned with ten commandments which he gave to the descendants of Abraham. At this point, the life force of creation, after Moses and all the generation that lived in Egypt died, let the descendants of Abraham enter Canaan with the Ten Commandments as their guide. And so it is my friend, the journey of the descendants of Abraham (the father of Muslims, Christians and Jews) and the journey of each of our lives. A journey for physical, emotional and spiritual salvation. The first commandment sets forth the connection and oneness of all of Creation in which we ALL find our connection with each other and the life force of Creation. It is in that knowledge, that a great healing of the soul happens and we find our spiritual ONENESS and SALVATION. ABRAHAMIC (SPIRITUAL) JUDAISM- ONE PEOPLE WORLD UNITED

This weeks Old Testament (Torah Portion) is from Exodus. In Exodus 25:1-8 the Spirit of the Divine revealed to Moses, “Speak to the people of Israel, that they take for me a contribution. From every man whose heart moves him you shall receive the contribution for me. And let them make me a sanctuary, that I may dwell inside them, in their midst. And so it is my friend, we find the Spirit of the Divine inside our hearts. The Divine is not separate from us but part of us. We find the Spirit of the Divine by looking within ourselves. Outwardly the conflict and struggle of Creation appears, but within we can find the harmony of the Divine Spirit and we can find comfort and peace. Amen SPIRITUAL (ABRAHAMIC) JUDAISM- ONE PEOPLE WORLD UNITED

Revelation

This week, we read the Old Testament (Torah) portion called Shemot (שמות) which means “names.” which is the beginning of the book of the Exodus. The first part lists the names the descendants of Abraham (the spiritual father of Christians, Muslims and Jews, who had came to Egypt. It then begins with the birth of Moses and goes to the revelation at “the burning bush”. At the “burning bush” Moses, by taking the time to observe, has the revelation that the Force of Creation is not extinguishable and exists for ALL of Creation, eternally. With this revelation, Moses has the strength to lead the descendant’s of Abraham from Egypt. Amen SPIRITUAL (ABRAHAMIC) JUDAISM- ONE PEOPLE WORLD UNITED

This weeks Old Testament (Torah) portion reading is from the book of Genesis. It is named “generations.” It is so named because it begins with the words “Now these are the records of the generations of Isaac” (Genesis 25:19). It tells us the story of the birth of Jacob and Esau and their struggle for the birthright and blessing of their father, Isaac. We also learn about Isaac’s trials and difficulties in the land of Canaan. The portion concludes with Jacob’s deception of Isaac in order to procure the family blessing. Genesis 25:19-28:16 And so it is our friends, in every generation their are struggles in the outer world. There are struggles and conflicts within families, groups, religions and nations. There are also struggles and conflicts between them. Struggle and conflict is part of Creation. All things change in the outer world and change brings conflict and struggle. As a human being you can physically touch things that are within three feet of you in the outer world. However you can affect and change your inner world. Through the consciousness of Abraham (the father of Christians, Muslims and Jews) we realize that ALL of Creation and ALL generations are connected and one through the Divine Force. Our consciousness of the connection and ONENESS with CREATION brings an inner peace in a world of change. Amen. ABRAHAMIC (SPIRITUAL) JUDAISM- ONE PEOPLE WORLD UNITED

No sooner was Abraham (the Father of Muslims, Christians and Jews) weaned — and he was but a small child — that his mind began to seek and wonder: How do the heavenly bodies orbit without a moving force? Who moves them? They cannot move themselves! Immersed amongst the idol-worshippers of Ur Casdim, he had no one to teach him anything; his father, mother and countrymen, and he amongst them, all worshipped the physical aspects of Creation like idols, money and other physical things. But his heart sought, and came to know that there is a Force that connects and is ONE with ALL of physical Creation… (The words of Maimonides, in his Code of Jewish Law) Now my friends, scientists have found the so called God particle. And what is the God particle? (See the You Tube video below about the God particle) The God particle is the Force that connects ALL matter. So you see, scientists found exactly what Abraham experienced and is the basis of Christianity, Islam and Judaism that there is a Force that Connects all matter and Existence and connects each of us to Creation. We are grateful May my brother Jonathan Lindley Harris (1954-1997), a person who truly understood connecting with others and the Spirit of Creation above the physical, rest in eternal Unity with the Force of Creation. Amen May Blessings and connection with the Spirit of Creation be with each of you on this day of rest and ALL days Amen

genesis

Then the Spirit of Creation formed a man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. Genesis 2:27 And so it is my friend, we are all formed with the Spirit of the Creator as part of our souls. It is breathed into us from Creation. The consciousness of our connection with each other and the Spirit of Creation lies buried in each of our souls and we find it each and every day in each other and the world around us. That consciousness will change the way we spend our days. It will shape our relationships with family friends and strangers. When we reach out to another in connection of our Spirits, we are not only connecting with the other, we are connecting with our own soul and the Spirit that Connects ALL of Existence. Where do we connect with this Spirit. In the love of our children. In the hand of our wife. In the touch of the sun upon our face. In the warmth of a smile from a stranger. In a kind word and a gentle hug. Our true strengths lie in these connections. We ALL want to be a living being. A be-ing of aliveness. For when we are truly alive our heart is conscious of and emulates and is in harmony with the Spirit of Creation.

It is related that Abraham, the father of Muslims, Christians and Jews, wore a pearl or precious stone on his neck, which brought healing (Tosefta Kiddushin.) Not much is known of this stone other that it’s power perhaps came from a combination of Abraham’s belief in the Oneness of the Spirit of Creation and his innate gifts that he encompassed as a humble and compassionate man. Abraham teaches us that with such a combination anything is possible. The stone serves as a conduit or a touch point for Abraham to feel a closeness to the ONENESS of the SPIRIT that flows through ALL of Existence and for others to feel that closeness. People realize that they need help to attain Inner Peace and healing. Some find it in touch stones such as Abraham’s amulet. They may wear a hamsa, or mezuzah, a cross, an om , a buddha, or even a locket or stone that reminds them of their connection to the ONENESS and their tradition. But true Inner Peace and healing needs us. The stone is just a stone until someone fills it with their consciousness of the ALL. . When we pray, we connect and are conscious of the Oneness of the ALL, in whatever is our faiths. It is through this consciousness that Inner Peace and healing can begin. And when it is coupled with a peaceful, humble , and compassionate life then great world healing can begin. Our hope for each of us is that we can connect to our selves, each other and the ALL with the attributes of Abraham and find Inner Peace and healing. With gratitude for this day of rest and ALL days. AMEN
