[...] וַֽהֲבִֽיאוֹתִ֞ים אֶל־הַ֣ר קָדְשִׁ֗י וְשִׂמַּחְתִּים֙ בְּבֵ֣ית תְּפִלָּתִ֔י"

"I will bring them to My Holy Mount, and I will cause to rejoice in My house of prayer [...] because My House shall be caled a house of prayer for all peoples."
prayer, a beckoning forth from the universal soul, from G-d's inner being -- to draw Truth towards oneself, to illuminate the world with it. Prayer as art
and art as prayer. a song, a tune, a poem or two: plucking the strings of being, picking out the moment from the unknown, the unseen, the unshown. This is the connection with the divine, the vivification of creation through mind. By using ourselves as a vessel for the flow of life, we allow the world to be flooded with creativity, the world of ideas, light.
To build, then, the Temple of eternal joy. Through our art, the songs of our soul, our yearning for the culmination and revelation of the ultimate purpose of all things we stack the stones of the House of prayer of all peoples.
The taps of divinity are open to all -- one must only seek, must learn to knock on the doors of heaven and ask. Indeed, many are tapped in, seeking and drawing out their own picture of G-d, letting the stream of soul flow through them. My plan, my deepest desire, then, is to gather these sparks andcreate a constellation of seeking souls, all of us joining together to paint an ever-expanding picture of the universe, our creator, the Divine.
Eventually, bezrat Hashem, this approach to life spreads. Perhaps, we imagine a world of people infected by the awe of life, the drive to self-express, everyone and everything driven only by the desire to know, to understand, to reach a harmonic consensus of what it’s all about, what it all means. In the end, all of us are one large constellation scattered like marbles, like sand on the seashore, partaking of one great infinitely unique song.
My idea is to start where I can, from where I am, and gather what I encounter -- thus creating a platform for whatever might come and to gather all the sparks I can.
