Worth exploring

On my quest for truth, I am continually being made aware of the illuminated visions and paths of so many that came before me here on earth. Many mystic traditions, hidden, now revealed anew.

The similarities are striking. The stories told reverberate the same Truth. So many ask how can this be? Did these sages of old learn this wisdom from one another? Most likely not as vast expanses of time, land, and water separate these wisdom traditions. Many of which have been lost for ages. Hidden then lost. Appearing again to new eyes and new hearts, for those with ears to hear and eyes to see. 

So what then could be their common source? I say, THE SOURCE OF ALL.

My most recent interest of inquiry is the Kabbalah, the mystic tradition of Judaism. Kabbalah states that the Creator created all the worlds simultaneously, including our world, and we human beings have to use Kabbalah in our world, the finite material world. In order to further advance our understanding of the wisdom of Kabbalah, we need to lift our mind's eye above the horizon of our material world. Kabbalah clarifies our perception of reality. Below I have linked the book, The Kabbalah - The Mystic Quest in Judaism By Christian David Ginsburg, published in 1865, which I am just beginning to read in an attempt to grasp the spiritual insights therein.
