Seven lights or basic emotions 

Next the artisans fashioned the Table of 12 loaves. After this, Moses threw gold for the Candelabrum into the furnace, and G-d fashioned the Candelabrum.Seven Ways to Light up the World

וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת הַמְּנֹרָה זָהָב טָהוֹר וגו’: (שמות לז:יז)

[G-d] made the Candelabrum out of pure gold. Exodus 37:17

The Candelabrum, the source of light in the Tabernacle, signified insight and enlightenment. The sudden and elusive flash of insight and illumination in the mind is similar to a bolt of lightning flashing across a dark sky.

Every Divine soul is a source of Divine illumination. It is in this sense that the soul is metaphorically termed “the lamp of God.” The seven lamps of the Candelabrum signify the seven basic types of Jewish souls. Each type has its particular path in revealing Divinity, based on the seven basic emotions:

(1) the love of God, (2) the awe of God, (3) connecting to God through studying the Torah, (4) overcoming obstacles opposing Godliness in the world, (5) appreciating God’s goodness, (6) the pride in being God’s emissary in the world, and (7) humility.1

God’s Spirit is like a Broadcasting Station, broadcasting all the time. You Just have to learn to Tune In!

Lots of youngsters may like the bonke-bonk music and often do not listen to what is said in the lyrics. Often there is much noise going on, one ear in and one ear out,without much notice. But at God‘s station every note can work inspiring and uplifting, even the silence in between brings the necessary peace.

*

To remember:

Just like radio waves unseen in the air = God’s Spirit ever present all around you > waiting for you to make contact.  designed by your creator to receive those signals

. God’s power is always on. The  message is always there but in order to receive it you must turn on & tune in to His frequency!

Prayer = hand of faith that flips the switch & turns on power + hand of hope tunes with expectancy, feeling for the frequency upon which God is broadcasting

spiritual receiver continually turned on & tuned in to His frequency?

The Power Of Relationships

REFLECTIONS OF A MINDFUL HEART AND SOUL

Found on Google+ on 4-12-15. Jerry Blank. Found on Google+ on 4-12-15. Jerry Blank.

I am part spirit and I crave

The limitless of space.

I yearn to soar and feel the wind

Against my tearful face.

I need to make you understand,

I’m grounded for a time

Upon this earth to do His will.

Yes, I’ve been left behind.

I yearn to see God in your smile

And hear Him in your voice.

I want to feel His loving touch,

Find reasons to rejoice.

Forgive me for seeking Him

In all you say and do;

For wanting spirit-driven things

To prove God’s love is true.

Forgive this heavy burden placed

Upon your small frame

For God has put us here on earth

His great love to proclaim.

We are both connected in

A very special way.

We’re part of God’s  family.

He lives in us today.

Yu/stan/kema. (6/14).
