Elijah, the prophet reverred in Christianity, Islam and Judaism as the harbinger of Inner Salvation, lay down under the tree and fell asleep. Suddenly the Spirit moved him to “Wake up and eat.” He looked around and saw a loaf of bread and a jar of water near his head. He ate and drank, and lay down again. The Spirit returned and woke him up a second time, “Get up and eat, or the trip will be too much for you.” Elijah got up, ate and drank, and the food gave him enough strength to walk forty days to Mt. Sinai, the holy mountain. There he went into a cave to spend the night. The Spirit had moved Elijah to go back to Mt Sinai and bring back again the message that Moses had brought back of consciousness of the Divine to the people but that the people did not understand. The Spirit spoke to him “Go out and stand on top of the mountain,” Elijah went to the top of Mt Sinai and expected the Spirit to come in a furious wind that split the hills and shattered the rocks—but it was not in the wind. The wind stopped blowing, and then there was an earthquake—but the Spirit was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake there was a fire—but the Spirit was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the soft whisper of a voice. When Elijah heard it, he covered his face with his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. An the Spirit spoke to him, and Elijah understood that Spirit can be heard in ALL things in a soft whisper within himself. And when Elijah returned from Mt Sinai he said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the connection and ONENESS with the Spirit that runs through ALL of Creation that was broken down.” (Book of Kings 1-19)
